Default Shipping a car north from Atlanta

We have a car in Atlanta that we would like to ship up here.

I can fly and drive back but it will be a few weeks before the schedule will accommodate that.

Any suggestions/options?

It’s been several years since we have shipped a car so looking for any recent recommendations.

BTW: This is not a Porsche so open or enclosed is fine.

I do not have a specific advice, but I usually just do a search for shippers and get quote from several shippers. You can call call and talk to the dispatcher if you are so inclined. My experience is that mostly contract out.
I am in the process of doing that right now to get my latest purchase from MA to NJ.
If it is high end car, the usual suspects are high end shippers (i.e., $$$) who haver their own trucks.

This sounds like a great task for a retiree. PM Trak Ratt and see if he and the missus want to go have an adventure.

Congratulations on your purchase, time to update your signature.

Do you mind sharing your leading shipping candidates?

Nice Bullitt. The rare/speciality models of the SN95 are starting to come into their own - Bullitt, Mach 1, supercharged SVT Cobra. I always loved the Torq-Thrust replicas. I actually had a set on my old Ford Probe GT for a moment.
