Cost and safest way to transport a BMW from Ma to California .

Anyone have any first hand experience " shipping" a car from east to west? Our BMW is almost new, and in mint condition. Anyone have an idea on the best way to get the car to the west coast, I have done some research and am thinking " covered " car carrier is the way to go? We also have a Honda that we will drive.
Any insight is appreciated!

I shipped a Ford Taurus from Detroit to Stockton for $800 back in 2007. It was an open carrier and it was picked up at my father's house and delivered to my house.

Hi RobbieB
Thanks for the info. Did you experience any damage? I am specifically worried about rocks, road debris etc with an open carrier?
Thx

Be aware there are some real idiots who do this. One guy doubled his bid to drive through 30 miles of mountains.

I'm pretty sure I used these guys to move my vehicles - I'd use them again
