I'm not sure if you were looking for high end fully enclosed shipping but if
so VIP Transport Inc is a good company. (www.viptransportinc.com) It's
expensive ($1600 or so) but they handle cars up even into the millions of
dollars in value.

I'll toss in my recommendations for uShip as well. I've used it three times with
success across the board, so to speak. My memory might be failing, and it might
be only two times, but a wink is as good as a nod to a blind horse.

The advantage of uShip is that if you're not in a hurry, you might catch a low
bidder who will "be in the area" and be able to pick up your load at a price
lower than the other players. Another benefit is that there is a feedback system
similar to eBay, so you aren't necessarily going out in the blind to find a
shipper.

I've tried to use one of the uShip shippers more than once, but he's always
somewhere else and isn't planning for many months to be in my area or in the
area of pickup, so I've had to drop back to the bid process. Each end takes a
hit in that you have to pay uShip and the bidder does as well, but it's not all
that much of a cut. I think one of the trips cost me an extra thirty simoleans
to pay off the middleman.

How much do you want to do yourself and how much in a hurry are you?
Pushing the car into a 20 ft container and securing it will allow
you to use regular (road and rail) transport that will give you
much lower cost than a dedicated truck driving from an unspecified
place to somewhere else (but I am guessing across country)
and if you are going overseas it is essentially the only option.
