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!
Los Angeles, CA
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.
Prompt service and reasonable price. Will come back in the future if I need shipping services! Highly recommended!
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.
Apple Valley, CA
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.
San Diego, CA
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.
Daly City, CA
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
Thousand Oaks auto transport tips and facts
We want our customers to have the best possible experience with their car shipment so we've compiled a few facts and tips for you to consider. Understanding these facts and following these tips will help you save time and money on your transport. Let's start with defining a couple of terms: A broker is a middleman between the customer and carrier. The carrier is the company that physically hauls the vehicle from one location to the other. Now that we're familiar with these terms, let's read about their relationship and how it pertains to the customer.
Understanding the auto transport broker & customer relationship
Distance traveled, vehicle size, and the urgency of your schedule will affect your overall price. One variable that cannot change is the vehicle size. However, distance and urgency can be adjusted. First, if you're shipping a car that is not being picked up and delivered from a metropolitan city, consider releasing and accepting the car from a major city - this will lower your transport cost. Second, if you have a tight schedule, work hours, or travel plans, consider having a friend or family member release or accept the vehicle for you. Giving yourself a 1-5 business day window for a trucker to retrieve your vehicle will also cost you less than giving your transporter anything less than a 5 business day window for pickup.
Understanding the auto transport broker & car carrier relationship
Contrary to what people may think, a customer's initial call to a transport provider is directed to a broker and not the carrier. It's rare that any carrier markets for the industry, rather their full-time job is operating their fleet and requesting vehicles from brokers. This said, your broker's first important task is to note your flexibility or inflexibility regarding your schedule. Moreover, it's your broker's responsibility to properly quote your final price and ensure that the rate will never change once you've booked. Finally, it's your broker's job to secure a trailer space for your vehicle on a carrier that is insured, reputable, free of negative ratings, all while ensuring your schedule is in sync with the carriers'. What is door-to-door transport?
Generally speaking, an auto transport service is a door-to-door service. This means the driver will get as physically close to the pickup and delivery address as possible. If you live on a street that is accessible by a truck and the driver can safely park, they'll pick up and deliver at the specified address. If you live on a narrow street, one with low-hanging trees, or a street on which the driver cannot safely park, they'll meet you at the nearest convenient location to you. Options available when meeting the driver (should your address be restricted) are meeting him a couple of streets away or even a local Target, Walmart, or Home Depot parking lot.
Understanding the customer & car carrier relationship
Once your broker has dispatched your vehicle to the carrier, the carrier will reach out to you to establish a schedule. Upon arrival, the carrier will take proper inventory of damages to the vehicle and mark them on the bill of lading. The bill of lading also serves as the contract between you and the carrier, ensuring that addresses, terms, and price are agreed upon before the loading of the vehicle. Keep in mind you don't personally have to be at the pickup or delivery location but can designate a trusted individual to release or accept the vehicle for you. Just ensure that payment is ready to be made on delivery to avoid delays.
Save money on auto transport
In order to save as much as possible on your transport consider these points:
- Allow your broker a 1-5 business day window wherein they can arrange a courier to retrieve your vehicle.
- Consider shipping to and from metropolitan cities if you're otherwise in a rural area.
- Don't pack any household items inside the vehicle without notifying either your broker or carrier.
- Ask your broker for a little discount on the broker fee; never hurts to ask!
