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.

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.
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
