Auto Transportation is the Search the List category to find well-rated and reviewed companies for this service.


Here is a review article on companies with reviews -


https://www.consumeraffairs.com/auto_...


Ones I have heard decent comments about - Nationwide Auto Transporters, RoadRunner, Stateway, Wrightway Auto Carriers (only one I have used - I don't know if they go that far back east though - they specialize in Alaska and Hawaii).


Note - if shipping as part of a household goods shipment (though some employers and I think military do not allow this) - though you would have to check delivery time for the shipment - as long as "some" household goods go in the trailer/conex with the car, you can ship a car with the household goods. NOT a good idea to put in the main van with the other goods (fire and odor risk) but if you have a full conex or van already, a separate conex with maybe the yard items and such in with it can work - sometimes cheaper than a stand-alone auto transporter, and fully protected from weather than vandals too. Make sure if you do that that ALL items are protected from rubbing against the car - double-layer - on cardboard layear on car, another padding layer, because the car will bounce around in motion so can wear right through the paint job if something is touching it. Make sure mover knows there is a car in the shipment - they need to get a tilt-bed flatdeck wrecker to put your car on first to then load it into the conex if sitting on a wheelset. Ditto at receiving end if it is not unloaded at the warehouse dock and driven to your house - they normally want you to do that.
