    I am moving cross country for the SF Bay Area to Boston. I am bringing the Model S, but do not want to drive cross country. Does anyone have any suggestions on services for an enclosed car carrier? Price is not a major factor. I just want the Tesla to get from point A to point B with no issues. Ultimately, hoping to narrow down a car carrier from good experiences that people have had with one or the other. Not many reviews for such services on Google.

    I used "Exotic Car Transport" to move a Lamborghini from Beverly Hills to Florida. They did a really professional job. And the total value of the cars on that transport was staggering.

    They are Florida based, so I don't know if that will rule them out.

    thanks for the suggestions, everyone! LiteWait, from your "Tesla Trip Down Highway 1" post, it seems like you dealt directly with jplogistics with really good results. Ultimately, looking for someone who has worked with the Model S. Did you also directly use the other two?

    tga: I called the Tesla factory service center figuring they deal with transporting cars, and they also recommended Horseless Carriage. I will check them out. Finally, I'll also check out Exotic Car Transport, zzzz. Thanks for the suggestion!

    If anyone has any more, I'd love to hear them.

    I personally used Horseless Carriage in the past. Expensive, but flawless.

    I have used Intercity with great success... smooth and really fine folks.
    Plus they are based in Warren, Mass which should be of some comfort to you.

    Same here. Intercity is fantastic:

    I had them deliver my Evo from CA to Ohio. Arrived absolutely pristine, and in a protective wrapper. Great stuff.

    Making a sticky for this subject might prove a fine long-term benefit to owners, esp. if good & bad experiences, prices and other review criteria were included.

    Thanks for all of the responses, again. Based on the good experiences I've read with Intercity, I booked a reservation with them. I will certainly post my experience about it like Gizmo has with his evo!

    Plycar was recommended by Tesla when I shipped my roadster from DC to San Antonio and I used them again for my Model S from LA to San Antonio. Both times a great experience. Always other fancy cars traveling with my Tesla.

    Up up, and away! Off to Boston with Intercity. Great experience during the pickup phase so far. Very professional, friendly, and extremely careful loading the car.
