While on vacation in Montana, Mark Bennett and his family bought a SUV, a 2011 Ford Edge, and needed to get it back to their home in Cedar Rapids, IA. Shipping it turned out to be less expensive than driving it themselves, so after a recommendation from the car dealership and an internet search, they settled on J&S Transportation. “My Dad purchased a vehicle, a 2011 Ford Edge, while we were in Montana on vacation. We had to fly back to Iowa and shipping the SUV was the easiest way to get it back to us,” says Mark. “I was thinking of flying back out and drive it back, but it was cheaper this way.” “The place we bought it from, Laurel Ford, recommended you guys to us, but I decided to get online and search myself. I needed to ship it from Billings, Montana and you guys were the first ones that came up when I searched. I’m a web developer, and I was impressed by your web site, so I decided to go with you. The fact that I found you guys on the web and you were the one that Laurel Ford suggested just kind of meshed up.” “The J&S office was very thorough as far as letting us know what the plan was. The follow-ups were great. They were extremely concerned with making sure it got here and that we were satisfied. It actually got here quicker than I thought it would, so that was pretty… Read more »

Blaine Hoversland of Wolf Point, MT, bought a 1999 Ford F350 Super Duty one ton dually from a dealership in Gresham, OR, and needed it shipped to Montana. Based on the recommendation from another car transporter he decided to use J&S. “I just bought a vehicle, a 1999 Ford F-350 1 ton dually, from Gresham Toyota, in Gresham, Oregon, and needed it shipped to Montana,” says Blaine. “I talked to the salesman at Gresham Toyota and he gave me the number for a guy out there that does work for them. When I called he said he doesn’t go to Montana, but he gave me your name.” “I got online and Googled ‘auto transport’ and looked at some other companies. Their prices were really good but I read some bad reviews, so I Googled ‘J&S Transportation’ and I went to your website.” “I saw that I could get a free quote so I did. 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.” “I booked the order online; it was simple and worked fine. Then the office called me and we set up everything. I had them deliver it to the J&S warehouse in Billings. I am about 350 miles from Billings but we’re down there quite often. It was delivered real quickly, so I just flew… Read more »
Richard Hook recently bought a 2006 Ford Mustang from a dealership in Oregon and wanted to ship it to his home in Ocean Shores, WA. When the dealership couldn’t find a company to do the transport, Richard got online and found J&S Transportation. “I had shipped a car before. It’s been a few years, but I’d had a car brought up from California to my home in Ocean Shores, WA, probably ten years ago,” says Richard. “I bought it sight unseen from a dealer and had them ship the car up to me.” “This time I bought a 2006 Ford Mustang from West Coast Auto Enthusiasts in Portland, OR. Todd at West Coast couldn’t find anybody that would ship the car for us so I went online and punched in ‘car transportation in Washington’ and found you guys.” “I went on your site, punched up my estimate really quick and actually booked it online. The ordering was real easy and worked out really well. I was amazed.” “Then I got a call from the J&S dispatch office. I talked to them and said I was in Arizona and needed the car delivered to a friend’s house so he could keep an eye on it til I got home. J&S took care of arranging the transport with Todd down in Portland. Next thing I knew, the car was on its way.” The whole thing came off really well. I’m really happy with how quickly it was brought up here, and my… Read more »
James and Sarah Algera of Byron Center, MI, recently bought 2002 Mitsubishi Eclipse online from a seller in Bradenton, FL, and needed it shipped home. A recommendation led them to J&S Transportation. “We found a car, a 2002 Mitsubishi Eclipse, on craigslist from a private owner in Florida,” says James. “We never shipped a car before and I wasn’t sure what to expect. We had just bought the car online, and we needed it shipped to our home in Michigan from Florida. I wanted to buy a vehicle with no rust, and in Michigan it’s kind of hard to find a vehicle without any rust on it.” “My wife got hold of some brokers online, and they recommended you guys; they hooked us up with you.” “I got a couple of calls from you guys to setup the pickup and delivery. The guy I spoke to was real nice, courteous, and professional. He arranged the pickup with the seller, picked it up, and brought it up to Michigan, dropped it off at the local Wal-Mart where we got it, and I drove it home. It was nice and easy.” 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. Thanks, James. Easy and professional… Read more »
Mike Mazzo needed to ship his son’s 2010 Hyundai Sonata from Henderson, NV, to Richmond, VA. Hopping online, a Google search brought up a number of auto transport companies. After researching his options, Mike settled on J&S Transportation. “We had a vehicle, a 2010 Hyundai Sonata, which was given to my son,” says Mike. “It was in Las Vegas and we needed to get it here to Virginia, so I went online and did a Google search for car transport. It’s my primary search engine.” “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.” “After I found you online, I placed some phone calls to your office. Everyone I spoke to was very helpful, very polite. If I had to leave a voice mail, someone got back to me usually within 30 minutes, but always well within the hour.” “The transport of the car went well. My sister-in-law in Vegas did a walk around like you do when you rent a car to check for whatever damage, nicks, dents were on the vehicle, then signed off on the Bill of Lading. Then when the… Read more »
Steve and Susan Seiler recently bought a 2013 Dodge Charger from Mountain Home Auto Ranch in Mountain Home, ID, as a gift for their son and needed it shipped to their home in Windsor, CO. Being first time auto transport customers, they relied on a recommendation from the dealership and booked their auto shipping order with J&S. We took care of the rest. “We were looking for a car for our son for when he turns 16. He’s not 16 yet, but the car, a 2013 Dodge Charger, was available and it was a really good deal, so we decided to jump on it,” says Susan. “We hope it’ll get him through college, as well.” “My husband was given you guys’ information from the dealership, Mountain Home Auto Ranch. Based off the dealer’s recommendation we decided to give J&S a shot because we had nothing else to go on because this was the first time we’ve shipped a car.” “I was a little worried because we had no experience shipping cars. The reason we were nervous was due to all the damage disclaimers that were listed. It said the insurance wouldn’t cover damaged to the paint job caused by battery acid or other fluid from another vehicle leaking onto our car, or rocks or anything hitting the car from the roadway that could ding the paint job. The disclaimer said that’s not covered. It just made me worry a little bit because I didn’t know if the vehicle would be… Read more »
Jason Dobbs of Reno, NV, needed to ship a car he bought online, a 2007 Toyota Sienna, from the dealership in Pleasanton, CA, to his home in Reno, NV. An internet search led him to a couple of auto transport companies, but after getting reading some customer reviews and getting his free car transport quote, he decided to give J&S a shot. “I bought a car online, a 2007 Toyota Sienna, and needed to get it shipped to me here in Reno, NV. I hadn’t seen the car, so I was a little hesitant,” says Jason. “I had the CARFAX and asked the dealership, Pleasanton Auto Mall, a few questions about things that wouldn’t show up in photos like making sure it sounded good when it ran, that the previous owner hadn’t been a smoker; those were a couple of things that I just had to take their word on.” “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.” “I read some customer reviews about the companies. The customer reviews and testimonials on the sites weighed in my decision. I think I would’ve paid more if one of the companies had great reviews and the other one had some sketchy ones.” “I wouldn’t have wanted to save the money if they had gotten bad reviews, but both companies had good reviews, so I went for the… Read more »
Tim Reiser recently purchased a 1992 Volkswagen Corrado for his daughter and needed it shipped from Culver City, CA, to Albuquerque, NM. After having his daughter do the initial search for auto transport companies online, they settled on J&S Transportation. “Well, my daughter wanted the car, so I drove out to California to look at it while she went back to Michigan where she works,” Said Tim. “I figured I’d make her do at least some of the work, so I asked her to find some auto transport companies. She looked on the Internet and found you. She liked your website setup better than everyone else’s, so based off of my daughter’s recommendation, I ended up choosing J&S. 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. When I spoke to the dispatchers, they estimated that it might take a week and a half or so, but it got from Culver City to here in Albuquerque about four days. “I was pleased that everything went as smoothly as it did.” “I don’t usually recommend stuff to people, but if someone asked I would recommend J&S to them. It was a smooth experience.” Thanks Tim. We’re happy we impressed you.
Sam Watson of Kalispell, MT, needed a vehicle at college. His folks found J&S and used us to transport their 2009 Honda Civic to their son at Carleton College in Northfield, MN. “I’m going to school at Carleton College in Northfield, MN, and I needed a vehicle so my folks sent me the family vehicle, a 2009 Honda Civic. My folks shipped it to me where I’m going to school because I didn’t have time to drive it.” “My dad took care of all the arrangements for me, so I didn’t actually speak to the J&S dispatchers; my folks did. J&S picked it up from the house in Kalispell, MT, and I got it here in Northfield, MN, in a little over a week. Everything went well. The car was in good condition. The driver was very professional, and I was very happy with it. “The driver was the person I had the most interaction with. My parents asked him to give me plenty of advance notification before he got here because I don’t have a car on campus, so it’s difficult for me to get places, and that’s exactly what he did. He called me in the morning and let me know that he would be here in a few hours. I gave him a meeting place close by, a nearby gas station, which was very convenient for me because it was just about a 10-minute walk away. He arrived there on time and unloaded the car for me,… Read more »
Richard Perz previously used J&S to ship his 2006 Hyundai Sonata from Bozeman, MT, to his home in Sayville, NY. This time, he needed to haul it from Chicago to Sayville, NY. He didn’t even contemplate using another company “We first found out about J&S when I dropped my daughter off at college at MSU in Bozeman; she was going to college out there. We drove the car from New York and coming through the mountain pass there I realized it would be hard to get the car back here in the middle of winter,” says Richard. “I went to the Ford dealer in town and they recommended you guys. We went with J&S based on their recommendation.” “They sent the car from Bozeman to Sayville before, and this time we needed it shipped it from Chicago. I wanted dependable service so I went with J&S again. This was the second time I used them to ship our Sonata.” 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. “What I liked best about working with J&S was it was simple. You could pick the phone up and call somebody and they actually answer the phone, and they follow through. If there is a problem, they give you a call. Could you find cheaper transport? Possibly, but I’m not willing to do that. I want dependability. They walk you right through the whole process and they kept… Read more »
