Choosing an auto hauling company is an important decision that is often made without a lot of experience. Like buying a home, vehicle hauling choices are important to get right the first time. You need to do some research. Look up third party review sites. See if there are customer reviews on the site of the company you are considering hiring to ship your car. In addition to offering free interstate car transport quotes there are important questions to ask any auto transport company when you want to transport your vehicle .
Know before you ship a vehicle:
- An instant quote should be available.
- Estimated pickup and delivery dates should be offered.
- Any required or suggested preparation of your car should be disclosed.
- Insurance and damage policies as well as vehicle tracking options must be clear.
- Extra charges for over-sized, modified or inoperable vehicles must be known.
Nobody likes surprises. With J & S Transportation, you’ll always know the status of your order, the timing of delivery, and we’ll be happy to answer any other questions that come up along the way.

Transport Tip: Door-to-door service
When you get a auto transport quote many times it is for terminal-to-terminal service, not door-to-door service. J&S does door-to-door service unless there are neighborhood ordinances prohibiting trucks from entering. In that case, our driver will call and arrange a close, convenient and safe location with you to pick up or deliver your vehicle.
Are you worried you’ll make a bad auto transport choice?
Car hauling should be easy, simple and painless, but that is sadly not the case much of the time. In fact, the auto transport business has a less than sterling reputation. Some customers have had terrible experiences dealing with auto transport companies and you can find a lot of horror stories on the internet.
Common complaints you’ll want to avoid
- Damages to vehicles during transport.
- Late pickup and delivery.
- Poor customer service and communication.
- Surprise surcharges not mentioned in the car shipping quote.
Why we started our own auto shipping company
Our involvement in other businesses led us to ship vehicles across the country, and we found it very difficult to get the kind of service we expected. We learned firsthand it is very hard to find a company in the car delivery service that is honest about their delivery capabilities and how long delivery of a vehicle will take.
Our cars were consistently not picked up on time. Delivery dates were more of a guesstimation than accurate estimations. No one would tell us where our vehicles were during transport and we found it almost impossible to get an actual human on the phone or get a response to our emails when we had questions. Cars we shipped often arrived damaged. Shipping quotes were rarely held to. It was a nightmare.
Eventually we figured we could do a better job ourselves, and so began our experience transporting cars and trucks across the United States. That was over 10 years ago, and now it’s grown into its own auto transport company, J&S Transportation.
Time for a positive auto shipping experience
We made it our mission to make vehicle hauling a positive experience for each customer.
When we started this company we wanted to earn loyal customers and gain their repeat business. We have accomplished that and more.
Since we opened our auto hauling business over 10 years ago J&S has shipped over 235,000 vehicles with our own fleet of trucks and shipping partners who help us serve the entire continental United States.
Always know where your vehicle is during transport
When you hire J&S to ship your car, you will receive honest answers to whatever questions you may have regarding the transport of your car. You can count on quick communication about the on-time delivery of your vehicle.
We say what we mean and we mean what we say: When we quote you a price, we honor it, and when we give you a delivery date, we meet it or get your car to you early. And if there is a problem with the transport of your vehicle, we are pro-active in letting you know.
You will not be wondering what is going on with your car. We’ll call you first, or return your call promptly, as we demanded for ourselves when we started this company to serve our other businesses.
Delivery on our own trucks
We always try to put your car on our own trucks, but if we can get the vehicles to the customer faster by brokering the freight, we’ll do it. We are primarily an auto transport company, but J&S is also a licensed and insured broker.
You’ve found a small company here in J&S Transportation, but one that’s big enough to always get the job done and still have the human touch.
Direct contact from pickup to delivery
When you book with J&S to ship your car, you’ll get an on-call phone number and an e-mail address for one of our own dispatchers so you have a personal contact throughout the process of of pickup to delivery. What you can expect:
- Door-to-door service, not terminal-to-terminal
- Accurate vehicle condition reports at pickup and delivery
- Transport of your vehicle safely
Our promise to you: we will e-mail or call you to update the status of your order so you’ll quickly know what’s going on with your vehicle. We will be able to track your vehicle throughout the shipping process with GPS tracking systems in our trucks.

Jason Kummerfeldt & Scott Chesarek, The J&S of J&S Transportation
What impressed me about J&S were the price and the speedy service. I mean, it went really, really fast. I was amazed. I have a friend who is going to be shipping a classic car and a regular car from this area to Idaho and I’m recommending J&S to him so you’ll have two vehicles to ship out of here soon.
My dad has shipped three vehicles with you guys and I’d use J&S again myself just because of the service that they have done for me and my family.
It was such a great experience altogether. From the phone call to getting my vehicle delivered. Joe was really professional informative and J&S gave me the best price. They answered all my questions. I was very impressed with J&S. They were good guys. J&S were just the best overall on everything. Customer service was huge.
The truck arrived in perfect condition. I didn’t want it damaged by someone who didn’t care. With J&S and their subcontractor I felt that I got someone that cared for my vehicle as much as I did. J&S would be my first call if I needed to transport a vehicle again because of the quality of service I received. This was a one ton truck that needed to go on a route coming out of South Carolina to Iowa where there isn’t a lot of traffic in the transport world. I am very, very satisfied. I could not be happier with the way I was treated by J&S.
Everything went smoothly and as promised; it was great.
A lot of the other people were treating Dillon like it was way out of the way, but J&S picked it up when they promised they would and got it delivered here shortly thereafter with no issues. I gave them the information of where the truck was and who the contact was, and Joe took care of it from there. That’s pretty much the story. If I had to ship a vehicle again I’d definitely use J&S; they have their own trucks and it’s more direct communication with the haulers as opposed to a broker.
J&S ran everything with me and made sure everything was okay. That helped me relax. They called me, let me know my car was being picked up and it was on the way to Henderson. Also, the fact that the driver was so detailed really impressed me. J&S followed up with me and made sure everything was okay. Overall, it was a really good experience.
I would use them again, and I wouldn’t have any hesitation recommending J&S, especially if it was a neighbor who wanted to ship out to a rural area. Although it took longer than maybe I had hoped, J&S did deliver to where I wanted it delivered.
Call J&S. They are the best in the area and will tell you the truth.
The shipping went perfect. In fact, the car got here before me. I’m glad I shipped it instead of hauling it myself. I was very satisfied having the vehicle shipped by J&S. You guys did a great job and I’d do it again. Everything was perfect.
I’ve shipped vehicles before and it wasn’t bad, but I would just say that having the truck shipped by J&S was the top. The price was fair and it was a very professional experience; they performed better than anyone else I’ve ever used before. You guys did what you said you were going to do.
I’ve moved all over the place. I mean, I’ve lived everywhere and I’ve had vehicles shipped four or five times. Out of all the experiences, there’s no comparison; J&S are just the best professionals I’ve ever dealt with. J&S were wonderful, wonderful people to work with. They made the whole experience less daunting. I don’t know how you grade people, but on a scale of one to five they’re way up there – seven, eight. I liked them that much. I’d recommend you folks to anybody.
I actually did a lot of researching into auto transport companies online, and yours was the only one that had your own fleet. That’s the thing that was most appealing to me. J&S was very, very well organized. The communication was phenomenal and your speed was superb. I put in the order Thursday; my van was picked up Friday, then shipped and delivered on Sunday. It was so quick and easy, and the timeliness and speed of delivery was great. We don’t ship vehicles for Minuteman Parking corporate that often, maybe once every two years we’ll ship a vehicle back and forth, but I definitely know who to contact now when we need to do so. Keep up the good work guys. Don’t change.
The experience from beginning to end was very good. I would recommend J&S because of their service. J&S were good to work with and did everything they said they would.
It was wonderful. J&S gave me a quote and they honored the quote. Hands down, it was worth it. The word of mouth about J&S is fabulous and I enjoyed their sense of humor. They were very nice and always accommodating on the phone. They had character, and it came through on the phone. They were very fun to work with. I would definitely endorse shipping with J&S; I definitely would.
Brad was straight forward from the beginning. He said there might be a problem because the car was not running. As it turned out it wasn’t a problem and it turned out very well, actually. Brad’s honesty was what I liked. When somebody is straight forward with me and says this is what it’s going to cost, and that’s what it costs, I like that.
“All in all, I was very, very pleased and impressed with the service of J&S and I would recommend them again. I actually put a review on transportreviews.com and Yelp as well. The people at J&S are professionals. If anybody has to ship a car or if I ship another car, they’ll be the first people that I call. No question.”
I liked everything about having the car shipped by J&S. Based on my experience, I would absolutely ship another car with you, personally, and I would definitely recommend J&S . Without a doubt I would recommend you. Bottom line is everything we dealt with was fantastic. Obviously I would have liked to have saved a little money, but it was cheaper than flying out there and driving it back myself, so I have no complaints.
J&S’s price was better than the other companies I had looked at. Plus, the guy I talked to out of Oregon said that you were good to work with. Basically, based on another transport company’s recommendation I decided to go with J&S. Working with J&S was easy. In fact I actually just booked another car this morning to get delivered. This one is a 93 Ford Ranger pickup coming out of Idaho. “I would definitely recommend J&S. The website was easy to use and the quote was reasonably priced, too. I couldn’t fly out and drive it back for the price J&S quoted.”
The best part about working with J&S was just how easy everything was. It was just so easy to book the shipping; the website, like I said, was really easy to use, even for a dummy! Plus the car was picked up and delivered very quickly. “Everything worked out really well. In fact, when I get back home, I’ve got a car I might have to ship back down here, so I’ll definitely give J&S a call again.”
Everything about dealing with J&S was easy and professional. The people were real friendly, and if I were to buy another vehicle, or ship my vehicle in the future, I definitely would use you guys again. I got your card, so I don’t have to go through the broker now. I’ll definitely call you guys first.
I looked through and did comparisons with a couple of other sites. I liked the J&S website. I liked the way it was laid out. I liked the photos of all the drivers. I liked the guarantee that you offered. I looked at the price you quoted and I thought it was a fair price. When I did a little calculation, it was actually cheaper than going out there and driving the car back myself.
What most impressed me I guess was the communication. We were in the loop with the driver from the moment he picked the car up, and we knew how to reach him. He said to call him or text him at any point and he’d let us know where he was and how things were going. I’d say the communication was what we appreciated the most; we knew where the driver was pretty much the whole time. I definitely would recommend J&S because the experience was good. We really don’t have any complaints, at all. It went really well.
I did a Google search for car transporters. I found a couple outfitters in the region that were willing to do it. I called two of them and J&S was one of them. It worked out well. I had the car picked up from the dealer. J&S pretty much set up and coordinated all the pickup stuff with the dealership so I didn’t have to be a middleman there. It was nice and convenient. The best part about deciding to use J&S was the clear communication and prompt delivery. They delivered everything as promised.
I liked the way J&S presented itself on the Internet. The website is pretty nice and the copy made it sound pretty good, and it was. Everything went fine. Actually, the transport went a lot faster than I thought it would, and that was sweet. They estimated that it might take a week and a half or so, but it got from Culver City to Albuquerque in four days. I don’t usually recommend stuff to people, but if someone asked I would recommend J&S to them. It was a smooth experience.
Everything went well. The car was in good condition. The driver was very professional, and I was very happy with it. I would recommend J&S and use them again if I need to ship a car. Like I said, we didn’t have any hiccups. Everyone I talked to was very helpful, so I see no reason to switch.
Shipping the car went excellent both times. It was no problem whatsoever. It’s no sweat; it’s a no-brainer; just use somebody that’s dependable. Could you find cheaper transport? Possibly, but I’m not willing to do that. I want dependability. I will absolutely use J&S again, and recommend them. Like I said, it’s all about dependability, and that’s the hardest thing to find.
Everything went smoothly and I mean perfectly. J&S has things put together to such a degree where everyone does the right thing for their customers. I would absolutely recommend J&S and use you guys again. You bet I would. J&S will be the first company I’d go to for me and for all my friends too. Everything has been perfect and I honestly mean that I have never dealt with any company where everyone did their part so well. Thank you.
Everything went very smoothly. The driver was very professional and on top of things. The delivery was actually quite a bit sooner than everybody expected so that was a good thing, and the vehicle is in good order. Overall, I would say it was a very good experience. All the J&S people I spoke with were very professional and cordial. I got a phone call right within an hour of placing the order online to clear up some details and verify the order. I didn’t have to sweat a lot to get this accomplished. So that’s good. I would recommend J&S to anyone because I had a good experience. I don’t think I was lucky. I think other people would have a good experience, too.
Everything was very quick and I thought it was also well-priced. From placing the order to delivery was under a week. It was last Friday when they picked it up and here it is Wednesday. I mean, you can’t ask for more than that. I would absolutely recommend J&S. It was very quick, and everything was issue-free. It was just real easy. If I ever have to ship a car again, I’ll definitely use J&S.
Working with J&S was a piece of cake. I placed the order online one night, and the next morning you guys were trying to reach me. I would definitely recommend J&S to anyone needing to ship a car. It’s been an absolutely pleasure. I honestly don’t think I could have imagined the experience to be as positive as it has been.
J&S said that it was possible to have the car picked up within three days, which is exactly what happened, and it was delivered in four days after that all the way to Detroit, Michigan. The car arrived in perfect shape, as I left it, and as I said, it was delivered halfway across the continent in four days. It was really unbelievable. I expected 15 days to 24. I got many estimates from different brokers and some were cheaper than the one I got from J&S, but I don’t regret one minute having spent a little bit more for peace of mind and for the car to be delivered to my son safely.
Brad- You’ve been by far the most honest person I’ve spoken to regarding the shipping process. I did speak to Accelerated, however I prefer to work with you, because you have been honest from the start. I just don’t want to be put on the truck lead websites and be emailed/called by a thousand random weirdos. Looking at the website, it looks like you, Vonda, and the other folks at J&S are honest and reputable. Thanks.
J&S were very professional, polite, and they didn’t squabble on the quote. The quote they gave me was what I paid. Everything went off without a hitch. They did exactly what they said they would do, and they delivered my truck within the window they told me. If I ever ship another vehicle J&S is the only company that I’ll use, and I would absolutely recommend them. I won’t even have to shop around for quotes. I know J&S are very fair priced, very reliable, and professional.
You guys did a great job. You got the car here timely, damage-free, and professionally. The driver was extremely professional. He called me ahead of time to let me know when he was going to be here. He was punctual and my car showed up perfect without any blemish or any damage, and it looked like it was well-cared for while it was being transported. I will keep J&S in my Rolodex and I will use you every time I ship one of my cars.
I had called several other companies, but when the seller told me ‘I’ve used J&S and I wouldn’t use anybody else,’ I took his advice and called Gary. Adam said that you guys were pretty professional and knew your stuff and I totally agree with him. They kept me informed as to what was going on with the transport. I liked that. J&S originally estimated delivery by Monday, but they actually got it in two days early, which was, I thought, pretty cool. I would totally recommend J&S and use them again.
J&S were very accommodating. I didn’t want the car delivered right away. I wasn’t going to be back home for a bit and I wanted them to wait to deliver it until I got down here and got settled in a little bit. They called me and said they could pick it up, they’d store it for me, and when I was ready and got down here they’d ship my car. That’s what they said they’d do and that’s what they did. They were willing to work with my schedule, which I really liked. I would definitely recommend J&S. Everything was very transparent and very professional. That’s what I was looking for, and that’s what I got.
I felt more comfortable with J&S, the way you were doing business. If I rated working with J&S from one to ten, I’d give it a nine or 9 1/2. I was real happy with all my communications with them and would use them again to ship a car.
What most impressed about J&S was the customer service we received. It was very good. We were in contact with the actual driver of the transporter; he contacted us several times along the route and telling us where he was and when he would be arriving. The customer service was a big plus. I would absolutely recommend J&S. The car showed up the day it was supposed to with no problem at all. It was an overall positive experience and I would not hesitate to use them again if the occasion should arise.
What impressed me was the diligence J&S showed in getting the job done, which you don’t see in a lot of businesses anymore. It used to be that way 30 years ago, but unfortunately people don’t operate that way. They stuck with it and they kept in touch with me to let me know what was going on, and I appreciated that. I definitely would recommend J&S, because they did a good job. We were shipping the car down to our 16-year-old granddaughter and she was just chomping at the bit to get it. The chances are we’re going to have the same situation in two years with a grandson, and we’ll certainly use J&S if that’s the case.
The price that J&S quoted me was more than accommodating, it was great. It would’ve cost me more to drive there and back in gas than what they charged to pick up the car and drop it off at my front door. I would use J&S again in a heartbeat, and I will refer them. On a scale of 1 to 10 they were 15. They did everything they said they’d do, and beyond. The next time I have to ship a car, J&S are the first people I’ll call. They’re the first company I’ll refer people to that need a service like this.
I think going with a firm that is dedicated to car transport and dealing directly with the client instead of getting their assignments through a broker made a big difference. The car arrived in excellent condition, and I’ve had cars arrive that were seriously damaged in the past. So, I have to assume that these guys know what they’re doing, and are careful and view their commitment to transportation as being as important to them as it is to the car owner. I would definitely recommend J&S, because of their professionalism, fair price, and they lived up to their commitment to delivery my car quickly and safely. I’d use them again.
It was very easy working with J&S. The price was exceptional. The guys who delivered were very friendly, and it was super easy. You guys were awesome. Pickup and delivery were very timely, and J&S’ people were very professional.They were easy to contact and they were available whenever I had a question I made a good choice, and if I ever have to ship a car again, I know exactly who I would call, and I absolutely intend to make sure people know about you guys.
J&S’s service was excellent. The online ordering process was very good. The response time on a quote was surprisingly quick. The driver was very courteous and the car was picked up precisely when J&S said it would be and it was delivered on time in perfect condition, so I was very pleased with the service.
J&S was a little bit more expensive than some other companies but I got what I paid for. I guess what I liked best about working with J&S, the ability to get them on the phone when I had a question. I think their communication was better than I expected and they kept me more informed than I thought they would with the nature of the auto shipping business. I would recommend J&S because of their communication and because the dispatch office worked diligently with me to coordinate the pickup and delivery of the car.
Overall, everything went really well. I don’t think it could’ve been any better. I would recommend J&S because it was really easy, and if a guy crunches the numbers it’s way cheaper than trying to go get a vehicle yourself. It’s less stressful, too, because it’s not your problem until your car shows up at your house.
We were taking our daughter to school at Arizona State and she was taking her car with her, but we wanted to have it shipped down there instead of driving it.I was concerned about the car getting there before we arrived because we were flying in, but I also wanted to have it in her hands before we left to come back home, so I was putting constraints on both sides of the equation. Working with J&S was wonderful. What most impressed me was once I talked to Brad everything went completely as he said it would. I was just very impressed that what they told me was going to happen is what did happen. They went way out of their way and above and beyond what I expected. I would definitely recommend J&S.
The truck was literally picked up one day and delivered the next. I would recommend J&S because they did what they said they were going to do and in my opinion, that is what matters the most.
My son, Spc. Mark Fruge, is stationed in Afghanistan and bought a car, a 2001 BMW 530i, on Monday. He made all the arrangements for everything on the computer. The transport was confirmed Monday morning and the car was delivered two days later. When I got home on Wednesday after the car had been delivered, Mark sent me a message asking ‘Is my car there?’ I said ‘Yeah, it’s parked in the driveway, everything is good to go.’ He was like ‘I thought it would be at least another week yet,’ and I said, ‘No, honey, they got it here in like a day. You’ve still got some time before you get home, but it will be here when you get here.’ I’ve dealt with other transport companies before and some of them aren’t worth a flip, but we would absolutely recommend J&S. If his buddies over there are buying a car, I’m sure Mark would give a nice recommendation for them to use your services if they need to ship a car.
My daughter Roseanne had a good experience shipping her car with J&S. She was happy and I felt perfectly comfortable going you guys to ship my car, and actually it shipped in less time than I had expected. I would absolutely recommend J&S because I think they’re reliable. You can trust them with your vehicle to get it to you in a safe condition and a reasonable amount of time.
Let me tell you, what I liked about working with J&S was when I called, I got immediate service. I wasn’t put on hold for a number of minutes. I got immediate service when I called in. We had good communication, good customer service, and it was wonderful. We’d recommend you guys. In fact, my uncle is going to be buying a car, and he is going with you guys for the transport from Seattle back to Idaho.
There was a little disconnect on the pickup end of things. I contacted J&S, and said, “Hey! The driver no-showed today; what are we going to do?” Gary was excellent. He got back to me right away, and resolved the situation. What I really liked about working with J&S was Gary’s follow-up and communication. Keeping me informed regarding what was going on.
We shipped a car with J&S previously. We were pleased with the service and that’s why we decided to use J&S again. Working with J&S was all that we expected. The Tahoe was picked up and delivered in four days total and arrived in great condition. I would use J&S again. They provide good customer service, a reasonable price and we’ve had two successful deliveries so far.
We were on vacation in Idaho when we got into an accident. My Toyota Sienna was being repaired in a shop in Idaho and I needed it shipped back home. One of the auto shipping companies I called recommended J&S. I went with J&S not only because they were recommended, but their bid was actually the lowest I had gotten looking around the Internet. I contacted J&S before the work was finished, so we had to arrange the timing to pick up the car when it was ready to go. The man at the body shop told me that J&S had contacted him so I knew they were on top of things. I ended up getting the vehicle a lot sooner than I expected. I was so happy that it was delivered so quickly. Working with J&S was smooth as you could hope for. I definitely would recommend J&S. Definitely. It was flawless. It was seamless. I don’t have any complaints about the whole transaction.
I’ve had to transport cars a number of times and I expect good customer service. That was something J&S does really well. They did a good job. I knew what to expect. I would absolutely recommend J&S to anybody needing to haul a vehicle. They are friendly, provide good customer service, and promptly picked up and delivered my vehicle.
Brad jumped through hoops to get my car on a truck by Wednesday. He then called me every 3 or 4 days to give me updates on where my car was and what was going on with the transport. I didn’t have to call him; he called me to let me know what was going on with my car. My overall experience with J&S was fantastic. What I liked best was Brad and the J&S crew kept me informed every step of the way. Their communication, honesty and customer service was more than I expected, and they delivered my car much earlier than the estimated delivery date. I would totally recommend J&S to anyone looking to ship a car in the future, and if I ever, ever, ever need to transport a car again I will definitely use J&S. They went above and beyond my expectations.
I filled out the quote form on the J&S website and booked my shipping order online, which was very easy and convenient. Booking online is definitely the way to go. I was impressed with the level of customer service and the communication from J&S. If we need another vehicle transported, I would have no qualms about using J&S again and I would definitely recommend J&S to anyone who’s looking to transport a vehicle.
I used J&S once before when I had a car shipped from Phoenix, Arizona, to Auburn, WA, where I live. This time, I recently bought a ’77 Jeep CJ5 from a guy in Superior, MT, and needed it shipped to me in Auburn, WA. I guess what I liked best was that J&S delivered my vehicle to my front door.They were professional and their communication was to the point. They were efficient and affordable. I would use J&S again.
I had gotten a number of estimates from other people, but having a personal recommendation from somebody made a big difference. J&S’s estimate was very reasonable, and the personal recommendation sealed the deal for me. They definitely went the extra mile to keep me informed, and having personal contact, knowing I could pick up the cell phone and get a response, there was a connectivity that I appreciate in business. I would definitely use J&S again. In lieu of dealing with all of the other people that are out there, bombarding you and calling you to do business with them, I would just say, ‘Go with J&S because they can get the job done.’
My dad recently bought a new Volvo 4WD, so I bought his 2006 Volvo S60 and needed it shipped from Montana to Maryland. Working with J&S was really good. They explained the whole process and I knew exactly what was going to happen, exactly what I needed to do, exactly what they were going to do. They called me and let me know what was going on every step of the way. The time that it took to get the car from Billings, MT to the time it showed up out here on the east coast was way shorter than I thought. It was shipped on the 20th, and it got here yesterday, which was the 28th. J&S made it very easy on me. I would us J&S again if I need to ship a car, and I’d recommend them to anyone who was looking to move a car. It was easy from start to finish. The whole process was very painless.
When I called J&S I was pleased by the quote that I was given. Other companies were telling me that for the amount that J&S was asking, my car probably would never get picked up. My experience with J&S Transportation was very positive. I bought my 2000 Honda Insight from a dealer 477 miles away from my home, and for $382 they picked it up two days after I bought it and got it to me in a week, no problem. This surpassed all my expectations. What most impressed me was simply the fact that J&S did what they said they were going to do and got the car to me in a timely fashion.
I chose to go with J&S because they were a transport company; they weren’t a third party broker. I’ve not shipped a car before, and J&S just seemed to know what they were doing. There was a cheaper quote I had, but I was a little bit uneasy going with some of these other companies, so I went with J&S. They have good references on their site. Plus I just had a gut feeling that they were the right company. I guess what I was most impressed with was the speed in which they got the car here, really. They gave me an estimated delivery of about two weeks, but once they picked up the car, it only took two days for them to deliver it. Apparently they left Dickinson, ND, on a Friday evening and got here to Boise, ID, by Sunday morning. That’s about 950 miles. I don’t know if I’ll be in a position to ship a car again, but if I am, I’ll use J&S.
I have to admit once the car was picked up I was utterly amazed at how quickly I received it. They picked the vehicle up in the morning one day and I had it the following day by 10:30 at night. What impressed me was the timeliness of J&S’s service and the communication. I had no problem at all. I didn’t have to call them very often; they called me and asked various questions and clarified the issues. Everything worked out well. I was very happy with the service. J&S’s prices are very good, the people were polite. I would certainly recommend J&S to anybody who’d ask me.
Working with J&S was great. They were very accommodating. They expressed a lot of concern for the safety of the vehicle, and they got it to me a day ahead of schedule. Let me tell you, they weren’t the cheapest either. There were other companies that were a little bit less expensive but because of J&S’s customer service I was willing to pay a little bit more. I would say what impressed me most about working with J&S was their concern for the vehicle. They weren’t just concerned about getting another transport to make money; they were actually concerned about making sure that my vehicle, which they knew meant a lot to me, got delivered safely.
I found J&S by going to the web and searching for automobile or car transport. I chose J&S because it was a very seamless, smooth, easy process. The website made the process easier. I could search, learn, compare, and get done what I needed to get done on my terms very quickly at the time that was most convenient to me. According to the website, delivery from Seattle to Dallas could have taken up to 21 days, but much to my surprise, they delivered within seven days. The car actually beat me there so I had to arrange an alternative delivery site with J&S until I could arrive and pick it up. I think what was most impressive was how well informed I felt at all times. I trusted the entire process. Information was readily available and I can personally say, first hand, that it was a great experience.
About 3 weeks ago I needed a car somewhere over 500 miles away overnight and they really saved my butt. Big time. Out of the hundreds of cars they’ve moved for me they’ve only missed about two.Enterprise Rent-a-Car
J&S transported a classic vehicle for me back in June. I heard about them through a colleague who had worked with them, so I didn’t have any reservations. It was a good experience. They took good care of me.
J & S Transportation is very good, very trustworthy. If they tell you they’re going to do something, they always follow up and do it. Quite often that is not the case, but with J & S it always is.Denny Menholt Frontier Chevrolet
When we’ve a special situation and sold something, they’ve always delivered on time. 99% of the time they deliver on that date.
Last week I had 3 rigs that I bought in Salt Lake City. They told me that they were going to be there to deliver to me no later than Friday and they got them to me on Wednesday night. They are on time 99.9% of the time.Karl Tyler Chevrolet, Missoula Montana
I’ve been a raving fan of J & S Transportation for 15 plus years. It really is about the people. I didn’t find J&S, they found me. And they have been saving me ever since! I’ve been a client of J & S for both transportation and for recovery. They make something I don’t want to do — making transportation arrangements — turn into something I want to do: sell cars!Rimrock Subaru / Rimrock Certified Kia, Billings Montana
Trucking companies are horrific, and I say that having been in the car business for 25 years. I refer everybody to J&S because you have no idea how hard it is to get a trucking company that will tell you the truth. When they tell you that something is going to happen, it does, and that is almost impossible to get. If there is going to be some deviation, there will always be a phone call. They get 100% of my business.Placer Motors
