Well with all that's going on, you're better off taking a cheap one way flight there and driving it back to Houston. That's assuming it is running...

Have you tried Uship.com? I'd had them set up shipping for 2 bikes - no complaints.

Any modern shipping method for vehicles will run you $700 at the least. If you are trying to be economical about it, drive it back personally. If you don't mind dropping some coin, but you are worried about security of the vehicle, give rccarlson22 a shout and maybe he can work a deal with you... He owns his own hotshot company.

Sorry for the late reply as I don't come around much any more, but I got tired of dicking around with the shipping companies quoting $800 and then coming back saying $1000. I just drove out there and tow dollied it back.

If you don't mind me asking, how much did it cost you to get out there and back home? Not factoring in your physical time.

Almost everyone faces the car shipping problem. Well, this is not exactly a problem, but it is important to find a reliable car shipping company. Besides, you don't want to break your bank in order to ship the car, so you still need to find an affordable car shipping service.
I am not sure if Shippa works all around the USA, but as I understood, they do. So, I'd recommend hiring the Shippa car shipping company.
If you check vehicle shipping quotes, you will notice that Shippa is among the most affordable service providers, but at the same time, they are among the most trusted companies in this industry.

Just saw this. I think total was about $300-400.

Yes, the option to take a one-way ticket and return already on this car is the most economically and logically attractive.

One of the main advantages of Japanese cars, thanks to which Asian-made cars as a whole began to pay more and more attention in the 80s and 90s to buyers from Europe and America, is their very high reliability. Maximizing the reliability of their cars was the main strategic plan of Japanese companies to promote their cars to the markets of Europe and the United States. So for me, buying a Japanese car is the best option!

Many supposedly reputable auto shipping companies will actually subcontract with a small shipper to haul a car from a typical low traffic area. I.E somewhere not close to an Interstate. Those subcontractors may not have insurance if they crash and total your vehicle. Happened to a friend.
