Shipping Tesla cross-country

I will be shipping my Tesla M3 from LA to NY shortly, and am wondering if anyone else has had a good experience using a shipping service for their Tesla. Based on my research it doesn't seem like Tesla has any approved partners in shipping, and I want to make sure the company I use will handle the car with care. Any advice helps!

    Plycar scraped the front and sides of our Model S shipping Denver to San Diego in 2015 in enclosed transport. Their insurance paid $10,000 of body and paint, and that was just superficial damage from chafing, no impact. Car was out of commission several weeks. Avoid.

    Ship Your Car Using Amtrak’s Auto Train
    Ride along with it, make it an adventure
  • My friend I was looking for the same service now in 2020, I had to ship my Tesla model X across the country from Washington D.C to L.A and probably it would took me too much time and money if I would use a standard shipping option from Tesla company. Honestly I was afraid and I wanted to have an enclosed transportation for my car to avoid the scratches or other things. I've searched for a good option on the internet and I was lucky enough to find the best shipping service in the USA. this is the shipping service I am going to use, they offer a great number of useful options that could be used for a transportation, even a GPS tracking system that will let me to see where my car is whenever I need

    Henry: The Tesla app on your phone lets you see where your car is.
    rhj: Unless something has changed, Amtrak has very few originations/destinations. Also, I've heard anecdotes that the service is not too goo and there could be long waits to load/unload.

    Too bad we can have more bona fide Tesla owners recommending shippers who completed cross country shipments of their cars. It would be valuable!

    I have heard that Horseless Carriage is very good. Their headquarters in right outside of NY. They ship a lot of exotic and classic cars to FL in enclosed trailers and also go to California.
