I bought a car and had to move it from Connecticut to Texas. Sherpa had good reviews and they did an excellent job. They fulfilled all their commitments. I paid the correct amount. The car was picked up on time. The car was delivered on time. Shipping took about 5 days. I would recommend them.

We had a long-term winter stay in Florida, and we transported our 2018 Audi from South Florida to Connecticut since my mom is too old to drive about. Sherpa's customer service was good. They met my expectations and the timeframe of the transport.

I have never had such a bad experience! I used Sherpa to bring my car from Maine to Naples last Fall. It was perfect, picked up at the house and delivered to my house. I then got a bill from a toll place somewhere in Florida I had never heard of with a picture of my car. The driver was using it. Today I called because Sherpa was supposed to take my car from Naples back to Maine. They told me they couldn’t guarantee it being picked up this week, they had underestimated their pricing and no trucks wanted to do it for what they were offering. Sherpa said they were losing money. Is that my problem? I need my peace of mind, regardless of cost when I have airline tickets on Sat. I am spending more but guaranteed on a days notice that it will be picked up within 3 days.

I used Sherpa to ship my Volkswagen Passat 2,200 miles to the other side of the country. I picked them because of the good referrals, and their website was the most organized. The interaction I have with the customer service people was all done online. They were very organized and I was left with no questions. The quote was accurate. When I submitted information that they asked for they responded immediately. Everything was clear from beginning to end. The car was delivered way ahead and my daughter took delivery. I was a little concerned about how it was gonna go on this end. But the driver corresponded with her via text messages, he arrived when he said he was gonna arrive, and he arrived down the street from their residence, then offloaded the car by the time they got from their house to the truck. Shipping with them was a good experience. I would use them again.

I bought a car online, and I needed it brought to me. And I used Sherpa since I had used them before. I had them take it to a mechanic shop. The vehicle was in fine condition and the transport was quick. It only took like two days. Sherpa makes the process really easy, especially for someone who is not used to transporting vehicles like myself.

My mom sent her Honda Civic from Arizona to Rhode Island. The reps from Sherpa were awesome. They did exactly what they said they would do and apparently, it's unusual in that particular business. The quote was a little bit higher than most places, but I went with them because I looked up the reviews and I thought that it was worth it. The transport took maybe six or seven days and it came in perfect condition.

I'm relocating to Florida and I shipped my Toyota Corolla through Sherpa. I like the service they sent. The person was also very responsive whenever I was asking. The person who delivered the car was very nice to me. I liked their service. It's efficient and very quick. Overall experience is very good. I'll recommend the company if somebody will ship their car.

I was moving cross country from just the New York City area to Arizona and I got quotes from maybe three or four transport companies. Sherpa was pretty competitive. Their website and from the people I talked to, they sounded more trustworthy. My movers from my apartment basically extorted first and never showed up. I went by myself, bought the truck. But with Sherpa, I had a great experience. They answered the phone, very professional, picked up when they said they’d pick up. They delivered within like a day and a half. So it was like a 48 hours drive. I'm a happy customer, from what I paid to what I got. They’re awesome.

The customer service representative I spoke to at Sherpa was really good and helpful in answering the questions that I had. And the pricing seemed reasonable too also the way the timeline was set up. I didn't have to go to any additional trouble. Whatever timeline they committed on, they did everything on the same time, so that was great. The driver who picked up the car was keeping track. I'm definitely satisfied with the way things were handled.

I live in Denver and I bought a used Tesla, and it was in Florida. I had to take the vehicle in Florida, and I didn't wanna drive her home. It was in the end of December, Christmas time. It's 2,000 miles and I didn't wanna drive her that far so I arranged the Sherpa to have it transported. I was referred to Sherpa by the local Tesla fellow. He said they used them before, and were satisfied, so it's the only company I called. I dealt with a lady the phone several times.

She was very helpful in explaining how the process work and what the deadlines were in terms of obtaining a driver. She went ahead and lined up potential driver and potential trips. And when I got the final delivery date, and availability of the car, I talked to her and we very quickly worked out a pick-up in about three or four days. It cost me exactly what we first talked about on day 1. It seemed about right. I left Florida before the transporter arrived at the facility.

But he got there all right and worked with a local Tesla dealer to load it. And I was impressed when he did that, and he appeared, and he contacted me and gave me an estimated time of arrival here. And he did arrive about that time. There were some difficulties in unloading the vehicle. It wasn't caused by him. The problem with the vehicle was on the lower level. We had to call Tesla national roadside service. I don't know whose responsibility the issue was. The transporter fellow did nothing wrong and overall the experience with the transporter was very positive.

Both times that I used Sherpa, it was a good experience. For the most recent, I bought a car and I needed it brought to me. Their pricing was accurate and the vehicle was in a fine condition when I got it. Sherpa makes the process really easy, especially for someone who is not used to transporting vehicles like myself.

I've been driving the same vehicle for a long time and I was going home Thanksgiving Day. I drove home and my Ford Ranger had a ton of miles on it and then all of a sudden, I had an engine problem and pretty much blew the engine. I went home but I had to get the vehicle to a car dealership about three hours away to trade it in and get a new car. I checked Sherpa and two others and Sherpa’s estimate was the best. It was only a $50 difference from their original estimate. They're still a great price. We would have to pay like a local wrecker probably twice as much to transfer the vehicle. I put in a request online and they called me within an hour.

They asked asked me the destination and all the basic questions. It took them about two days to pick it up at the gas station and get it shipped. Sherpa’s reps were polite and professional and sent me everything in writing. They were accessible and did pretty much exactly what they said they were going to. The driver is great. I met him at the dealership. Their customer service was awesome. I would recommend them 100%.

I sent my daughter my old car as she needed a new car. The transport was about 1800 miles move from Florida and California and I have checked at least a dozen transport companies before I chose Sherpa. I asked them to give me a price and the things that they were responsible for and not responsible for are what concerned me. I called them and I asked why their price was significantly higher than lots of other quotes that I got, and they gave me a reasonable explanation. We had some difficulty because I live on South Beach and they can't come onto the beach and so, we had the driver off the beach. He called and told me exactly where he was. He inspected the vehicle, then he documented any scratches on the car that were there or whatever, and then he loaded it himself. After it was delivered my daughter said everything was good.

Sherpa Auto Transport had reviews were very positive, and they seem to deliver what they promise. I chose them to move my BMW X3 from Colorado to Florida because of this. I talked to them numerous times and they always answer the phone on the first or second ring. They were always incredibly knowledgeable about the accounts and seemed very personable. They're definitely accountable. The quote that I got from them was higher than other companies, but I also read that other companies raise their quotes when they delivered the car. My SUV was in good condition when I got it but the delivery was 8 days late. The driver had a lot of problems with his truck but he was a nice guy. I didn’t need the car so it was fine. We just had to meet him a few miles from the house because he couldn't get into the neighborhood with his large truck. I felt positive with the lady from Sherpa who handled my transaction, their quote was very fair and 100% accurate and I recommend them.

I was heading home for the holidays when my truck broke down mid-trip in a rural area. I was in a pinch and called Sherpa and they found me a driver within 48 hours! I was planning on trading it in against a new car so it was really important to me to get it shipped with someone who would take good care of it. Sherpa was extremely professional and their communication was great. I have shipped a car previously and it wasn’t a great experience; I could never get in touch with anyone and the other company didn't really do what they said. Sherpa was completely opposite!! They kept me updated on the pick-up and delivery and made me feel secure throughout the entire process. I would 100% recommend them to anyone looking to ship a car.
