I had very good result with Passport. You should get a great deal moving three cars at once.

Scott
I concur with David. In the last twenty years I have moved cross country many single cars with Passport (now FedEx?) with great experience. Ask Passport about their standby rates. Takes a bit longer but the price is very competitive. Have never done a volume deal with Passport, but the benefits are obvious.
Be flexible.

Auto Transport Logistics ...

Florida is tough to get a haul out of.

For national carriers - your vehicle is like a package in the mail.

It will go indirect along established routes with multiple transfers & storage outside in yards.

A truck headed from Florida to Wyoming will take I-95 or I-75 north then I-40 or I-70 or I-80 east.

Every time your vehicle is transferred - it is driven & subject to damage.

Most damage happens in transit.

National carriers do not want off drop off one car - let alone three - Wyoming ...

What are they going to pick up ?

The national carriers want to have trucks full during runs.

My advice:

Use only enclosed transport.

Go direct from pick up to drop off.

Three cars, I would have a shipping connex delivered and tie the cars down inside. Padlock the outside and send the key via USPS Priority mail. Then ship the connex.

Jim is correct but most regular haulers car swap rides different drivers but with the ones I posted all been direct hauls so open some in closed door to door blanket service on my restored cars I was allowed to put a seal on he door if loaded at my place
I never delt in Florida and never had multiple units shipped
Best of luck
