DO YOURSELF A ******* FAVOR and read my **** below!!!
Don't go with the cheapest bid you recieve through email when you use a broker site... and you will email offers LIKE YOU ******* READ ABOUT the instant you submit a request.
Coast to coast (CA to VA) is $1000... you will get quotes from $850-$1200. Pick one around $1050 or so and be happy. Twice I've gone with a cheaper quote and ended up getting fucked.
Also... READ THE CONTRACT YOU SIGN!!! When you submit through a broker, you're kinda pulling your pants down and bending over for the guy. The broker essentially gives you a quote based on jack and ****. He won't actually find you a driver until about 3-4 days before pickup. You will pay the broker a flat fee of $XXX... usually $150 or so. You can pay this through CC. You will pay the driver cash.
The ******* bullshit scam assrape fuckfest cocksmear is that once the driver has your car, he has you by the *****... just remember this.
So what happens is this.
#1: You sign a contract with a broker and pay your fee to him. He has quoted you a total price that includes his fee to get your car shipped. Lets say a CA-to-VA of $850 total... that's $150 for him, and $700 for the driver (who you pay cash greenback dolla'billz). He now has to find a driver that will take $700... but the drivers all know that other brokers are asking $1200 for the same trip, taking a $200 cut and leaving them with $1000. GOOD LUCK HAVING A QUALITY EXPERIENCE IF YOU GO WITH THE LOWEST BID YOU RECIEVE. You'll end up with some driver who can't manage their schedule and just happened to have enough room and may or may not be going LA-Reno-Boise-Detroit-Dallas-Philly-Maine-DC-Virginia and you get your car 2 weeks later and it looks like a family of teradactyls **** on it.
#2: When you read the contract, you'll notice that it leaves a lot of wiggle room for the broker not to come through for you. When you read between the lines of the legalese, it basically says "We'll try really hard to find you a driver for the quoted price, but in the end, it may be more... and no, we won't refund your broker fee if we can't meet your dates even though it kinda says we can meet them as part of our agreement."
#3: Be flexible in your pickup and delivery days. If it has to be a specific date on both ends, you'll pay more and you stand more of a chance of being fucked. Give the broker a week to play with on both ends... or maybe a few days.
#4: I always let the broker know that my dropoff and pickup will be at a very trucker-friendly place. If either of your addresses are a 3 hour drive from a major highway down 2-lane twisties, you may pay more. My house in VaBch is a 10minute walk from a major truck-stop in the area and I let the broker know it... no need to drive to my house, I'll meet him at the truck-stop.
#5: Put a thick-*** coat of wax on your car before putting it on the trailer... put 2 coats. That way when you get it back, you can wipe off 5k miles of whatever **** has dripped all over it from whatever shitbox it was parked below.
#6: Put a cover over the drivers seat... an el-cheapo Walmart whatever is fine. The driver may have to move your car on-off the trailer a few times a day over the course of a week... in the pouring rain and smelling like teradactyl ****. Your drivers seat will smell like stanky-*** trucker butt unless you put a cover on it.
#7: It's late. Good-nite.
