The seller of my 2001 Saturn didn't return the shipper's phone calls to schedule pickup for the car. He went to the address only to be told the seller was out of town & that the car had been moved to another location. He drove to the second location to pick the car up.
Shipper kept me informed 100% I knew when they picked up the car, where it was & when it would be delivered. This was especially important to me b/c I was coordinating a delivery to my mom's workplace. I came home from school for the Holidays and will now be driving my Saturn back home. I only had to get a one way plane ticket & having the car shipped to their home saved me $ over having it shipped to my house. Get creative with your planning, & shipping a vehicle may not be a pricey as you think. =)
