Customer Reviews


“Two words…THE BEST….from the first contact call to the follow up. Dave Fountain made this a low stress, pleasant and professional transport. The continuing update calls kept my mind at ease. The driver was Excellent as well!! I Highly Recommend Dave Fountain for excellent, top quality service. Your search is over.”


“I have nothing but the highest praise for this company. We have had our cars transported by other companies and there is no comparison. Dave Fountain provided personalized and excellent service. He communicated frequently, was honest, and seemed to genuinely care about helping us get our car from a very rural location to another state on very short notice. The driver was personable, clearly cared about the car and making the pick up and delivery convenient for our family.”


“After being in storage for 15 years, finally decided to have my 1986 Mustang GT Convertible restored. First needed to move the car from New Hampshire to Texas. Dave Fountain to the rescue. He was easy to work with, honest and dependable. Couldn’t have asked for better service. Will certainly use Dave again in the future.”


“Never having shipped a “Hobby-Car” before, I was worried about trusting my “Baby” to an unknown shipper. Without a doubt, Dave Fountain went above and beyond to make this an excellent experience. I can think of nothing that could have made the shipment any better.”


“Dave Fountain helped me transport of my brother’s 1984 Nissan pick-up from Oregon to South Carolina. This is a very special vehicle to me as my brother paid particular attention to its upkeep, and then he sadly suddenly died last November. As I felt a connection between this pick-up and my brother, it became important for me to keep it, even though it meant transporting it across country. So I entered into what seemed to be the wild west of auto transport. I had no idea about this industry, but once I put the request out-there, I became inundated with emails and phone calls about why I should choose ‘their’ transport company. Having a Ph.D. in microbiology I was aware of how to research a problem, but in this instance I found it difficult to acquire the facts I needed to make a wise decision about which transport company to use. Things I became alerted to were that up-front deposits and multiple transport vehicles were bad indicators, and they often coincided with cheaper transport costs. The most important big unknown for me was how my brother’s pick-up would be treated once it was in the hands of a transport company. Talking with Dave was like talking with an old friend. Everything he said he would do, he did, and any time I wanted to check on my brother’s pick-up during transport, he immediately responded with a reassuring update. My brother’s pick-up arrived in perfect condition, on the day we requested, and it is now happily living at Folly Beach SC. While selecting Dave was a ‘best guess’ decision at the time, it turned out to be an excellent choice, and I would highly recommend both Dave particularly if you are a novice like me in vehicle transport, and you want to be assured that your vehicle will arrive in a safe, timely manner at its destination.”


“I have been in the trucking industry for over 25 yrs. After purchasing my Porsche i started looking for a transport company and sift thru the sea of brokers. most had terrible reviews and would give me the cold shoulder of i didn’t leave an immediate deposit.
I spoke with Dave Fountain and he was courteous, informative and honest. Price was fair, timeline reasonable and even after we had a truck back out on the deal he had a different driver 2 days later pick it up. No deposit was ever asked for and the communication was the best there can be. Between Dave and the driver I knew were my car was and how the trip was going.
Feel secure in using Dave for any move and should I need another transport i know who I’m calling.”


“This the fourth time in six years I have transported a car. This time, I wanted to use a different broker and found Dave Fountain in IA. From the outset of my conversation with Dave, I told him I was experienced in shipping cars. He was very gracious and patient with me and I even learned more things about shipping vehicles. Dave kept me apprised with each step during the Holiday season. The car was picked up 2 days early, but my son was able to work with it. The carrier delivered the car the date agreed to without any problems. Keep up the good work and many thanks to Dave Fountain!”


“My son wanted to ship his loved old 1998 Golf to LA from DC, which after debating, I said yes.
What won’t we do for our kids.
I searched the web, read the stories and worried like everyone else.
I got in contact with Dave Fountain and he was very straightforward explaining the all process and giving me a quote between 1300 and 1400 hundred (we paid 2250 for the car).
Again, we love our kids.
He said he would be back to me in a couple of days, which he did, and found a carrier to deliver the car to LA for 1300, which really surprised me because he could have easily said 1400.
My son met the driver just outside Washington, DC, and got his car after 5 or 6 days in LA.
The driver was super pleasant as well.
My son is only 18 years old, and he was very happy to have his car in LA.
And I was happy he witnessed a good work done by people you don’t know, who delivered what it was promised.
Dave did what all of us should do when working with others, to look not to maximize the profits for a one time deal, but to do the right job for the client, for himself and the name of his company and to feel good at the end of the day.
Thanks again Dave and everyone have a nice holiday season.”


“I suppose anyone can transport a vehicle, within reason, from one point to another. In this case, however (second time shipping the same car), I was very pleased with the way Dave Fountain in particular, took care of my needs. After other attempts of trying to arrange for my daughter’s car to be shipped back home from college for the summer, I was referred to Dave the week my daughter was coming back home.

Dave was prompt in finding a transport to pick up the car from my daughter within a few days prior to her flying home. The car was delivered as promised 5 days after pick up. The driver was very personable, and when I turned to hand him the payment, he stopped and asked me to first inspect the vehicle to make sure everything was in order.

All through out the process, from the time of my first call Dave kept me informed and apprised, via email and phone, of where the vehicle was and monitored the entire process. This did not happen the first time I shipped the car through a different company, of course. So, I definitely recommend Dave, and will not hesitate to call on them again when the car needs to go back to college at the end of the summer. Thank you Dave!”


“Dave Fountain moved a 1946 Ford coupe for me last year and I was very pleased with their service. I needed to move my 1934 Hudson coupe from Sand-point, Idaho to Baton Rouge, La. (2250 Miles one way). I called several transporters for a quote plus I called Dave Fountain. I am afraid that there are some companies that don’t measure up in the auto transporting business and I didn’t want to use one of them. Since my experience last year was very good, I decided to go with them even though they were not the lowest quote I received. I guess you pay for what you get. Some of the other carriers wanted a large deposit up front which was not refundable. Dave didn’t even ask for a deposit when scheduling my car. Dave was really helpful in coordinating and communicating during the move. The carrier he selected was really prompt, helpful and on time for the pickup and delivery 2250 miles in 3 days, Wow and at a fair price. Thanks Dave, I will call you first for my next move.”


“This was my 6th time shipping a car with Dave. There is a reason why I keep coming back as well as why everyone who gives a review here has nothing but positive things to say about Dave.

The reason is that he is excellent at communication and keeps you updated throughout the process. He is the only transport company to ever call after a delivery to make sure I was completely satisfied and if there is anything else I need from him. Besides that, the drivers he uses are the best. Friendly, courteous, and on time. Something I can’t say for other companies and drivers.

If you are looking to transport a vehicle, call no one else besides Dave!”


“Dave Fountain was my best decision I did for transporting my car from NC to NJ. He is very professional, flexible and very understanding. He scores 100% when it comes to meeting customer experience. I should say he exceeds that. He makes sure your vehicle is shipped with the best suited and reliable carriers group he deals with and they too never let him down. In fact, they were equally prompt with the date and time delivery of the vehicle (keeping the car condition exactly as the same I gave to them). I was expecting my car on a Monday morning, but they delivered it on Sunday evening itself , which was the day I landed in NJ and it was a great help for me.

I got Dave’s reference from one of my friend who shipped his car from CA to NC and believe me the service was way too great than I even expected.
Any day, any time I recommend Dave Fountain for people who really care for their vehicle and expects the delivery to be on time with a very reasonable price for the great quality they deliver.

Dave – great service!. Keep it up.”


“Dave Fountain was very prompt and dealt with my case in a very professional manner. I had my car transported from Iowa City, IA to the San Francisco Bay Area, CA. As a recent college graduate moving out of town, it was my first time having to do this and so I wasn’t very familiar with how to set up or arrange to meet with the driver/ contracting for auto transport, etc. I had a lot of questions and
Dave gave very detailed yet straight to the point answers. I was very pleased with his quick response, as it clearly shows his willingness to serve and nonetheless outstanding customer service.

My car was delivered in perfect condition and the service was very reasonably priced. I would definitely recommend Dave Fountain!”


“Talking with Dave Fountain was like hanging out with your brother. Calm, assured, knowledgeable. This business is a huge racket and it was great to finally speak to someone who would tell me straight! No pressure. No sales talk. Just facts.

Was a whirlwind when the day came to roll out. We had the chance to meet a driver about an hour + away, or wait for a carrier closer to me on another day. When Dave called with this opportunity, I jumped on it! And away we went!

Met the driver at the I-81 and I-40 interchange. He had two spaces left. Very congenial fellow. Clean and neat. Looked the car over, dotted up his inspection sheet, handed it to me to review and sign. I did. He loaded the car up, thanked me, and said, “Say goodbye!” Nine days later (they’d said it would be 7 to 10- perfect!), Igor rolled into Portland, Oregon. Met my daughter at the agreed destination, and did the process in reverse. Though the vehicle was dirty, it was otherwise in the same condition as when it left Tennessee.

One more thing about Dave. I may have said my daughter’s name twice in all the phone conversations we had. Yet, he pronounced her (unusual!) name perfectly! Bonus points! So glad to have worked with him. I’d do it again!”


“After driving the Thunderbird 3000 miles around the country, it developed a problem that meant I couldn’t take it further. I left the car at a mechanic in Oklahoma and organized a few quotes while continuing my journey across the country. After some prompt correspondence, Dave’s price and response gave me the best level of confidence I’d get value for money and the fewest hassles. That turned out to be completely correct. Dave kept me up to date with progress and returned calls and emails when he said he would. He handled the liaison with the mechanic re:pickup details etc. The driver was contactable to finalize the finer delivery details, and arrived exactly when he said he would. All in all, I couldn’t have asked for it to be simpler.”


“Dave Fountain provided the best customer service that I’ve experienced in a long time. He was very thorough in informing me about the process to transport the car, the cost options based on delivery dates, and the available dates to pick up the Prius. In addition, Dave was very prompt to answer any questions or give me the status update on when the truck would pick up the Prius. These days is not typical to find someone who cares about making sure your customer experience is excellent. This is the first time I used a car shipping transportation company, but based on my experience with Dave I will definitely use him again if necessary, and I certainly will recommend Dave to my friends and relatives.”


“Called Dave to set up a transport for my daughters car, I gave him the information he needed and said that he would call me back when he found something out. He called me back in less that two hours, had the car picked up two days later, and delivered on time. Everything went perfectly, the price he quoted was the price I paid, the driver was fantastic, everything went well. Recommend to anyone, and will use again if I need to transport a car.”


“Dave Fountain did a great job of keeping me up to date on the status of my shipment and where it was at, at all times. He did this via phone, text messaging and email. I always knew where things stood. The pricing was extremely competitive and much cheaper than for what I could do it for myself. The vehicle was picked up 2 days after the purchase was completed and delivered to me in less than 2 days. The vehicle came undamaged on a commercial auto transporter. First time I have ever used a car transport service and working with Dave Fountain was quick, easy and very cost effective. I will definitely use Dave again in the future.”


“We bought a 64 Corvair from a guy near Tampa, and it was delivered as promised, only better – Dave found a transporter wanting to get back to Kentucky ASAP, with a fully enclosed 24 foot trailer. I hadn’t even entertained the idea of going enclosed since it is much more expensive – but Dave worked it out so that it essentially was a free upgrade! Not a dollar over his original quote, and added peace of mind for everyone. Flawless service!”


“There is really no way the transportation of my car could have been any better. Dave calmly addressed every one of my paranoid fears. The care given to my car was superb. Not only was it loaded on the top level as I requested,the car was actually covered! It came off the truck without a fingerprint or spec of dust on it. The driver,John,kept in communication with me and took great care of my car.The car was picked up at 5 pm on Saturday(2 days after I placed the order) in Pennsylvania and was delivered two days later in Florida at 4 pm on Monday! Without a doubt, if I ever need to transport a car again I’ll call Dave Fountain! It doesn’t get any better!”


“Dave was excellent! Never have I transported a vehicle before. He walked me through all phases of pick-up and delivery, even encouraging me when the former vehicle owner temporarily balked at the plan I had arranged with him to present the bus for delivery. Dave maintained contact with me throughout the delivery, letting me know when the vehicle had been picked up, advising me when it likely would be delivered and calling me the day of delivery. He also called after the delivery to ensure I was happy with the transport. If more businesses conducted their customer services this way there would be no need for complaint departments. In short, I found them super!”


“Simply perfect in every regard. Outstanding customer service from Dave Fountain beginning with an immediate call after I completed a simple on-line request for quote, through continual telephonic updates, to checking in after delivery. Dave questioned the carrier at length to ensure he was a good match for moving an old classic and it paid off – driver loaded vehicle so it wouldn’t even get bugs on it! Pricing was extremely competitive with other companies. Regardless of cost, their exceedingly professional customer service will ensure I use them every time from here out.”


“Dave is the MAN. I broke down in the middle of no where in Cali. I gave Dave a call and he had date, time and everything laid out for me in the matter of hours!! I’ve had to deal with other transport company’s and all the crap that comes with it but I will never again. Thanks again!!!!”


“Dave is an honest guy and tells it like it is. He inspires trust. I will use him again to ship my car back and forth to Colorado from NYC. Thanks Dave.”


“Dave is great. He really knows his stuff, and I would definitely work with him again. One less thing to stress about when moving…yes please. I was referred by a family friend, and I was truly in good hands working with Dave. He keeps his promises, which is very important in the service industry. A job well done.”


“Dave Fountain was easy to work with, honest and told me exactly what to expect. He delivered on all of his promises. My car was picked up the day after I gave him the order and the transport went smoothly. Car was delivered 1 day ahead of schedule. When it comes time to return my car from VA to CA, I will contact Dave to arrange closed-transport shipping.”
