It happened for .475 a mile, enclosed, practically coast to coast.

yes, which is not $1100. Regardless, screaming deal if that includes brokerage fees and everything.

RunBuggy was a pleasure to deal with, especially Moe. Highly recommend them, if you need a car transported make sure to shoot Moe an email for a quote, let him know Tai referred you. MoeH@RunBuggy.com
Car was picked up within 2 days from order being placed and delivered within 5 days of pick-up and delivered flawlessly as promised. I am a happy camper and the process and communication was so easy with RunBuggy.

But, great info you shared for those that don't know how the wild wild west of car transporting works.
Sounds like you got a good deal. I am going to email Moe for quote.

This car has 3,000 miles on it, so it's essentially still new.

Open will run me about $600;
Enclosed will run me about $850. The enclosed transport has a lift gate for getting the car in and out, to avoid any clearance issues.

Timing on both of these options is about the same, so that's not a factor.

For those that have done this before, what are you thoughts on open versus enclosed transport based on the info I provided above?

Thanks!
This shouldn't even be a question. My car on open transport travelled 1300 miles got a ton of rock chips all over the car, even on the rims. Dealer resprayed the hood and fenders and one of the rims after I went crazy because there were massive white chips all over them but didn't cover the bumper as it was already chipped up. Really wish I just drove it over myself I'm sure 1300 miles of driving wouldn't have done what that open trailer did to my car. Smh.

So I just purchased my M3 from ToyBarnCars, they deal in high end/exotics im talking they have some lamborgini hurricans and 720s. Hit them up and see who they use for transport as i dont know because i am currently deployed and wont be home for the arrival of my car. All i know is it was 750 enclosed transport from Dublin OH to Virginia Beach VA.

I figured, no reason to risk it. If, in the off chance, anything scratches it due to being out in the open for 800 miles, I would be super irritated over a $250 difference.

Just for forum knowledge and paying it forward, I went with Mike @ Reliable.
347-299-3974

He set me up with the enclosed service for the best price and the quickest pickup. He was a great help.

Same here, enclosed. So happy that posting feedback on two threads!
