Shipping a car from colorado to here...

My roomate just bought a car in denver and needs to get it back here but neither of us know where to look as far as shipping companies. We need some help here!

Also wondering if it would just be cheaper to take a flight out and drive it back.

if you google auto shipping companies a lot of options come up, it will be cheaper to have it shipped then to fly out and drive back the cost of gas alone driving it back will make your stomach turn...unless your boy bought a honda insight

I dunno, when I looked at having a car shipped from out west it was a solid $800... so if you could get a one way flight for $200-250 then spend another 200-250 on gas you'd probably be in for less than shipping, but the question is do yo have the time?
Road trips are fun as hell, if you have the time (and the car is reliable) then make an adventure out of it and go explore all kinds of random places along the way.

I have shipped a few cars before. I used Red Carpet Auto, and another company. They are all brokers though, but use this:

Stay away from DAS if its a car that will get much attention. They use terminals, and your car could get unloaded at any of them, and some douche bagel could take it out for a spin.

Had the Moke shipped from Alabama to my door for $600 when diesel was $5/gallon. Just email a shipping broker and you will get all kinds of quotes. The carriers are starving right now, so sharpen your tongue and negotiate a deal.

troll makes a great point, a one way ticket would be cheap and the cost of gas may not be too bad. but u also have to weigh the option of the road trip being worth it, who has the time? would u have to take off from work?

i shipped my rx8 in an open carrier from philly to los angeles last year and it cost about 900 dollars and got there in about 5 ish days. i was happy with that. heres the company i used. and the service center is full of friendly women, so i sure didnt mind callin to bitch that the carrier was 43 seconds late to our meeting spot.


free online quote in 3 mins too...

fill in the boxes and ur set for a quote.

hope i helped

Just found out this morning he bought another car in florida so the plan is im picking up the talon in colorado and hes getting the ae86 in miami, one way tickets just seem to be more cost effective. Even though were both going to lose a long weekend driving itll be worth it in the end.

Thanks for all the help guys!

I just moved back from colorado to philly, approx. 1900 miles in two days, I moved my wrx by moving truck and trailer. It cost me about $500 to tow my car here, I suggest if the car is drivable, fly out and drive it back. What car did you buy and from who if I might ask? I might know the person/car.

Guy from colorado's name was Jeff and the car was a 95 eagle talon tsi, maroon with a 16g, fmic and other go fast goodies. Dont know that much about cause like i said it was my roomates buy not mine. Still the plan is to just drive out and pick up both.

The ae will definetly make it back, may not be an easy drive but itll make the trip, after that itll just be a weekend fun car.
