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

Santa Barbara auto transport tips and facts

Generally speaking, operable vehicles are less expensive to ship than inoperable cars. Because we'll have to send a specialized trailer (with a winch) to retrieve your inoperable vehicle, you're looking at a $150 price increase, on average. However, if you're a business (or an individual) who has a forklift on site, sending a specialized trailer to you will be unnecessary, therefore you're looking at regular pricing. Below we'll discuss topics you may find beneficial for your move.

Buying and shipping an inoperable car

Many of us love the classics, especially if we're looking to put a little elbow grease into getting it up and running again. If you've been browsing the web for a fixer-upper, consider asking the seller a few questions: Does the vehicle roll, steer, and brake? If any of the mentioned mechanics are not working, a specialized trailer or a forklift will be required for loading your vehicle. Is the vehicle accessible? If the vehicle you want is a barnyard find, it may be impossible to back a trailer to its location or winch it up. In this case, a local tow truck company should be dispatched to retrieve the vehicle from locations that a semi-truck cannot access. Ask the questions and consider the costs before purchasing the vehicle!

How long does it take to transport an inoperable vehicle?

For operable vehicles, we ask our customers for a 1-5 business day window wherein we can retrieve the vehicle. However, since specialized trailers with winches are not as common as regular trailers, the pickup time for an inoperable vehicle will take anywhere for 1-14 business days. Keep in mind that vehicles originating from large cities will get picked up faster than cars located in the sticks.

How to transport a car that broke down on the side of the road

We all like a vacation, and sometimes driving is more fun than flying. Should your vehicle break down while in transit and your distance from home far enough that a local tow truck cannot service, we recommend the following: Consider signing up for AAA immediately. Sometimes the cost of a year membership with AAA is comparable to a one-time tow truck service fee. Next, search the google local business section for a car storage location. Car storage generally costs 25-35 days per day. However, if you have a friend or family member in close proximity, consider having your vehicle delivered there to avoid storage fees. Finally, call us to arrange the transport of your inoperable vehicle back to your home city, whether to your mechanic or your home. It's never fun to break down while in transit, but if you keep cool and plan according to our tips, you'll save some major money.
