I'll pay my own airfare to go get it and drive it back to you... :loldougnc said:Well, it looks like I'm buying an SSR, but it's sitting 1100 miles away.
I've looked at Dependalbe Auto Shippers, they have a very low price. But I'm thinking maybe Horseless Carriage Auto would be more dependable and safe.
Any thoughts? Recommendations?
They quoted me 1450, very close to intercity.Z16Z06 said:Whats their charges at Horseless Carriage? just curious because i'd rather drive mine home.. but i HATE flying.. SCARY to me!! :eek
OH i agree with ya too!dougnc said:They quoted me 1450, very close to intercity.
Need I mention that you're about 1 billion billion billion to the billionth power safer flying in a747 piloted by professionals than hotrodding around in an overpowered 2 ton death buggy on roads covered with similarly equiped alkies, geezers, psychotics, suicides, and the occasional merely incompetent drivers?
I went into my local dealership, and placed an order at MSRP. The salesman, who was from the Suburu side, the Chevy salesmen all ignored me, never gave me his business card. He never e-mailed me as he promised, the sales manager never contacted me, as he promised, and calls and e-mails were just ignored.Yellow Hot Rod said:Support your local dealership!
I purchased a SSR via a dealership in the Detroit area that advertised on this web site. We flew into Detroit, drove 1 hr from the dealership to have the "custom wind suppressor" installed only to have the top fail after it retracted. No matter what we tried we could not get the top to close. I had to leave the truck near Detroit and fly back home WITHOUT the SSR. The truck was then driven back to the dealership the next day by the original salesperson. It took 2 days to repair the top mechanism. My wife and I then had to fly back to make another attempt at driving the vehicle 700 miles back home. So let's review; fly, fly back home without the SSR, fly & then drive!
If I were to do it again, I would take the best internet price and try to get a local dealership to match or beat it! Whatever money you saved would not be worth the aggravation of flying & driving or shipping if anything were to go wrong!
If it wasn't for Ray's help @ Pace I do not know what we would have done!
Who did you use to transport it?mikepowell said:the stuff I've seen would scare you! the stories I've heard scares me!
a wholesaler friend bought mine for me in Pheonix, I had mine transported to slc anyway.
Make sure someone at the dealership goes over it with a fine tooth comb :flag
I think I'm going to use horseless carriage. Anything I should know when negotiating with them?bcbear10 said:Horseless carriage is the ONLY way to go. Truck is enclosed and they are great to deal with. I use them all the time to ship coast to coast. Another good one is Intercity. Depending on where you live, one may be much cheaper then the other however the quality is the same.
my 3 cents worth!!!!!!!
