My neighbour just sold his vette and it was picked up by FedEx Custom Critical. Was not aware that FedEx had such a service.

I witnessed the great care with which the car was inspected and loaded.

Spoke to the driver (most are independent contractors) and he told me that a large part of his work are high end auctions such as Barrett Jackson and RM so they are familiar with transporting for meticulous owners.

Not a sales pitch, I was just very impressed with the way the transporter handled the car. Their web site is - passport.fedex.com

I'd sooner let them transport a sack of my dog's excrement than transport my car. FedEx can burn in hell. And no, I don't wish to elaborate.:mad:

bonehead, wow, almost sorry I posted this, but if you don't want to elaborate, why make the post?

I based my post on facts I witnessed and thought it would be of value to our members.

Obviously you had a bad experience and posted as such, so now you owe us the reason.

Have heard good things about FedEx auto transport. They're a little on the high side($$) when compared to others. Whatever you do when transporting a car, don't deal with a broker!

Bonehead, I seriously suggest that you drop the politically correct bullcrap. Tell us how you really feel...........specifically :15:

Fedex is pricey, and one never knows if you are going to get a good 'independent contractor' or bad one.

IMHO, they are just a broker. Although they have deeper pockets than most if things go wrong.... which means they can hire bigger lawyers. :)

Yes, I have also heard very mixed reviews about Fed Ex / Passport Auto Transport.

I chose to go with a small reputable and referred company to transport, C. Thomas Sunday. Very pleased with pricing and service. I had a few competitive bids from other companies.

I have heard horror stories about DAS.

I used InterCity. I have never heard a horror story about InterCity. They were excellent. I will use them again anytime I have need to ship another car.

I'd be interested as well...

I shipped my 07 M6 through Angel's Auto Transport...perfect...

Ironically, previous owner shipped extra key and manual to the car with Fedex...it was lost!!!!!!!

Had probs with DAS and Thomas Sunday. DAS did do a good job transporting a vintage car to Scottsdale for me though. The other 2 times I used them, not so good.

Thomas Sunday pretty much caused a car sale to go completely sour. The buyer wanted to hold me accountable for the transport delays. They ended up delaying like 2-3 weeks, which very much inconvenienced the buyer.

I used Fedex Custom Critical to get 6 cars out to the start of AKA Rally 2007. They were fantastic, and I couldn't have been happier. I'd highly recommend them to anyone. If anyone is interested, I have contact info for the specific drivers that I used.
