I recently moved to San Diego and needed to find a transporter. I have used Mike three times now and have had zero disappointments. He always answers the phone and is willing to get the job done and at a great price.

The car arrived in a very accessible space and the delivery by Eric, the driver, was made easily. Unfortunately, the car had to travel through some ice and snow storms, which caused a little delay. I was very pleased with the service and communications.
