Check their references and be certain the company is for real. I hired
a firm from LA using a similar name to a well known company thinking I
was dealing with the well known company. These guys were robbing Peter
to pay Paul trying to fill empty spots in transporter trucks as they
had none of their own. Not only was I out the $850 to have the Guilia
shipped from New York to Texas but I had to fly out and drive 'er
home...should have done that to begin with, great fun; no heater, dodgy
electrics (you realize, of course, the italians achieved the near
impossible of making british electrics seem reliable) and no
interstates. Expensive lesson but a very fun trip. The fly by night
outfit was shut down by the DA but not a soul was apprehended.

Scott, thanks for the info. Dont feel bad, I lost
$600 to the same company. Finally had a friend who
lived in the same city do a drive by there. (would
have made me feel better if it had been a "real" drive
by) They were boarded up and gone. Apparently with
alot of money.

I used intercity lines in Warren, MA, to transport my 67 elan DHC from E.
Stroudsburg, PA to Moraga, CA. Price 1500 dollars. That was in June of 1998. No
problems at all. Phone is 800-221-3936.
