Absolutely would recommend Hayk!  He's very responsive, well organized and knows how to get transportation lined up ASAP! The drive was vetted and has a 100% rating.  Everything flowed perfectly and we have our Model T in pristine condition. The transport company babied her...!   Will use your services again in the future.  Thanks Hayk!

Hayk is awesome. He made the whole process very transparent to me and was able to accommodate all my needs, especially my need to get my car picked up in 2 days. He is also very responsive when the car is being transported. His pricing is the lowest compared with other quotes I got.

Great guy. Hayk took care of business and when the quote came in higher than he committed to he manned up. You won't be sorry to work with him.

The best car shipping business I’ve ever dealt with. In the past, I’ve had bad experiences and was just turned off by the business overall, but Hayk changed that! He was honest with me of how the business works and didn’t over promise. My car was picked up within the expected pick up dates and was delivered early. The communication is fantastic, any questions I had during this process Hayk was there to ease my mind. Look no further, if you want your car shipped with reliable people in this business, they are the people.

I hardly ever leave a review but that's just how impressed I was with this company. I have never shipped a car before and got recommend to call Hayk. Best experience ever! He was very friendly, honest, and upfront. He answered all my questions I had and explained the process in detail to give me a piece of mind. I got a call back the same day for a driver and had my car picked up the next day. I highly recommend talking to Hayk and using his company!

I called for a transport quote, we weren't able to cut a deal however the rep was still very honest and super helpful. His service on the phone deserves 5 stars, I'll consider them for my next transport.

Hayk did a wonderful job for us -- he quickly found a truck that was available to pick up our car in New Hampshire and drop it off in San Diego.  The trip was expected to take 7-8 days, but we received a phone call after just 4 days, saying our car was ready to be delivered!  The car arrived in perfect condition and Hayk called twenty minutes after the delivery to make sure all had gone well.  I highly recommend this company!!

Disaster with another transport company. My sons car sat in Spokane for 1 week. Was to be transported to San Diego. I called Hayk and from the moment I spoke with him I knew this person was a gentleman.   Professional!  Detailed! He did not over promise. He kept us updated and the car was picked up a few days later and I even offered to pay more because he saved the day. No, he said.  "I'm just doing my job!"  Don't look elsewhere. Call him and trust him.

Competition Auto Transport was great!

On my vacation, my car broke down and I wanted to transport my car in a hurry back to my home because I would in the long run save on repairs.  It happened on a Sunday and a lot of business are not open on Sunday, so we were really lucky to find Competition Auto Transport.

Hayk was great to work with, he responded right away with a reasonable estimate and time frame.  He was very open to answering questions and working through any challenges that came up.  I was very happy to work with him and this business and will definitely keep this company in mind if I or if anyone I know needs a vehicle moved.

Important details to consider prior to shipping your car

Bakersfield car shipping tips

Generally speaking, when we quote a price we are quoting for a 5 business day pickup window. This means from the time you tell us your vehicle is ready for pickup, we'll need a 5-day window wherein we'll send a trucker to your location to retrieve your car. This window can be before, after, or surrounding your requested pickup timeframe. Frankly, the more flexible you are with your timeframe, generally, the less expensive your move is.

How your schedule affects your auto transport rate

It is important that you know that your vehicle is in competition for truck space with other vehicles traveling along your route. If you want your vehicle to have priority over all other vehicles the driver has a choice in booking, you'll have to consider the price which other customers are offering for that space on the driver's trailer. Consider if you were a truck driver, and you run a weekly route from Los Angeles to Bakersfield. If you have one space left on your trailer and there are two customers needing your truck space, obviously you will pick up the vehicle of the customer offering more money.

All things considered, when we quote you your price, we make sure that we're quoting a rate that ensures a truck driver will be retrieving your vehicle within your timeframe of availability.

Get a lower car shipping rate

Generally speaking, the larger the window of pickup you provide us, your price will be less expensive than of a 5 business day pickup window. However, there is only so low you can go wherein no truck driver will be interested in your haul. A rule of thumb is that for a pickup window of 1-21 days, the price will only be a marginal difference. Again, this is because we can only offer so low a rate to the driver below that they will not be interested at all in hauling your vehicle.

Can I ship my car same day?

Remember that your vehicle is always in competition for space on a trailer. Having said that, if there are truck drivers active and available in your area today, we'll have to offer more money than the current highest bid for truck space in the market. This will ensure that your vehicle gets priority over all other customers, and the driver will be enticed to retrieve your vehicle first above all others. Other than offering about $50-100 dollars more than the highest paying vehicle on the same route as yours, as your broker, we do not have any additional charges for this service. Keep in mind, however, if there are no available trucks in the area, we can offer the truck driver a million dollars to retrieve your vehicle today. But if there are no trucks available, even a million-dollar tip won't get the job done.

When will my vehicle be delivered?

Consider that bad weather and road conditions may cause a delay in the delivery of your vehicle. Although, it's never in a driver's best interest to hold on to your vehicle longer than expected. Keep in mind that truckers would much rather deliver your vehicle on time and move on to the next car to fill their available space. Having said that, below are some average transit times according to distances traveled.

Federal laws require truckers to drive a maximum of 11 hours a day. For the summary of hours of service regulations, visit the FMCSA website.

Average transit times according to the distance traveled:

  • 1-1000 miles(1-5 days)
  • 1000-2000 miles (3-7 days)
  • 2000-3000 miles (5-12 days)
