    My car was transported from CO to CT. The agent Jeremy kept me informed at all times. He responded to my email and calls. Satisfied with the service

    Anthony arranged delivery of a car I purchased from Seattle to Minnesota and made a stressful situation quick and easy!

    John Gardner was fantastic and worked with me to get my car shipped in my requested timeframe. He was very communicative, and super transparent about pricing, as pricing will more than likely go up from the original estimate. I thoroughly enjoyed working with him.

    Anthony was so helpful and did everything he could to book my car from IL to FL at the lowest price he could find. He was very communicative and always kept me updated on the progress and was very patient and considerate to my price and timeline and found me the absolute best option. I would highly recommend booking with this company and especially with Anthony if you can!!

    sonic auto transportation was absolutely amazing , they were very communicative, they were punctual, they gave me a fair price and between them and the driver they had my truck to me in a short amount of time in comparison to other transportation companies I have used in the past. I will contact them every time going forward to do any vehicle hauls i have

    Shipped a vehicle across the country. Their pricing was among the best I found and the arrangements were easy on both sending and receiving end. John Gardner did follow up to make sure I was happy with the transaction.

    I was having a truck moved from Alabama to Michigan. I got a good quote and had everything set up. Like others at the last minute the driver backed out so they said. We were able to still get it moved timely but I had to pony up more money. Other than what I felt like was bait and switch the move went well. I was also told delivery would be between 6pm and 10pm and the driver called me for delivery at around 9am. The truck beat me home and I had to work something out for someone else to pay the driver. This is the first time I used sonic, I am uncertain if I will use them again or try another company. I will check more reviews next time, maybe they all bait and switch.
    Katherine was good to deal with and did try to work with me though.

    Overall process was very easy getting my motorcycle to Vegas from San Diego, the agent Katherine Roberts was attentive and communicative. And once the driver was found everything ent smoothly. The only thing I would warn about is the quote provided can change pretty quickly depending on the time of the year, which isn’t on Sonic, but the local market and drivers can change their fees pretty quickly so best advise is to get your quote as close to your desired shipping date as possible.

    Thank you Katherine Roberts for getting my car safely to Florida!!!! It was delivered 2 days ahead of time!!! You’re awesome!!!!

    agent John Gardner was very helpful and easy to work with.
    My car shipped from Maine to Florida fast and with safety

    Katherine Roberts was very helpful and pleasant to work with in getting my car transported to Florida. She was very professional and a good communicator. I would use Sonic Auto Transport in the future.

    We needed vehicle transport services from MA to TX and were pleased to work again with John Gardner at Sonic Auto Transportation. John arranged our driver and noted to us up front that it was a little higher cost at $1400.00 and a little longer delivery time frame up to 8 days. We were still able to work with Sonic’s services and received the same high quality service. The driver, Diego, delivered our vehicle to a convenient location near our TX location. This was very helpful to us.

    Daniel Alar helped ship my car from Ohio to Alaska. He made the process easy and I could text him anytime to check on the status. Would recommend Sonic Auto. He updated me throughout the process.

    First of all, many thanks for your work hard and supports, Hunter. I found many suppliers to transport my Explorer from Connecticut to Georgia and very lucky to meet Hunter. I am sure that I will contact Hunter/Sonic as the first list if I need auto transport service in the future. Great!

    I worked with Daniel. He quickly arranged for transport of my car from the east coast to Hawaii on short notice. The final price was slightly higher than the initial quote, but it was due to shipping during a holiday. The car actually arrived early, and in great condition, so definitely worth it in the end. I’d recommend this company to anyone who needs to ship their vehicle, especially if you need it done quickly.

    Katherine Roberts was amazing throughout the entire process. Quick responses and went the extra mile to ensure my vehicle was transported from California all the way to Florida! There was never a time I couldn’t reach out and get a response.

    John Gardner responded to my on-line request for a quote to deliver my car from Chandler, AZ to Rexburg, ID within minutes.
    He was always courteous and prompt with all steps of the process.
    My car was picked up and delivered in timely manner without problems.
    I will use their service again if needed.

    Corey was awesome! He went above and beyond to make sure everything was taken care of and I was comfortable with the process as I just was scammed by another company just days before. I was shipping my Dodge from Nevada to West Virginia and was quoted $1550 which was as close to my budget as he could get for my time frame as well. I would totally recommend him for your transport needs!

    I recommend Sonic Auto Transportation any day. Affordable quote. Shipped my car from Florida to Arizona and my vehicle was delivered as per scheduled time with good condition

    I recommend Sonic Auto Transportation any day. Affordable quote. Shipped my brand new outback touring from Texas to Atlanta and my vehicle was delivered as per scheduled time with good condition.

    John was reachable for any clarifications and very helpful through the complete process. Thank you John, you have been most helpful!!

    One of the reliable auto transportation company!!!

    5 STAR SERVICE from Sonic Auto Transport!
    John Gardner was an amazing rep and helped me get my car from Nevada to California. ON TIME!

    Where Can I start, I have been searching for an auto transportation services that help me yo bring my car from Colorado to Arizona in a good price. However, I couldn’t find one for weeks until last week when Terry Red text me from Sonic auto transportation services asking if I still need help with transporting my car. I replied still want Your service and immediately called me and assured me that he will get me a good price and a quick delivery. Indeed, thats what exactly Terry Red did. He found me really a good price ($710) and a day delivery. More importantly getting updates about delivery is very helpful. My car delivered perfectly and the driver that provided the service is very helpful and kind. I highly recommend sonic auto service because they care about the service more than you do. Thank You!!!!!

    This was my second time using Sonic Auto, I shipped a brand new C8 Corvette Stingray both times from Detroit to Los Angeles. They were the cheapest quotes both times and also showed up earlier than expected both times!!

    Good service, communicative and very helpful. I shipped 3 vehicles from LA to TX with John Gardner. Will use Sonic Auto Transport again!

    In December, Sonic helped eliminate the concerns about transporting my car during my move from TX to GA. They were considerate, kind & professional. The cost was low and although I was nervous about how legit this process would be, they remained in contact and was available for any and all questions I had in a timely manner. The cost ended up being $200 more than the quote but it was still hundreds of dollars less than any other transportation broker I found! I would totally recommend them.

    Thea Moris was very helpful in facilitating the shipping of my car during last Christmas despite the inclement weather. When the first driver couldn’t make it. She got me another and followed up with me and the driver to ensure the car was eventually picked up. After delivery she still followed to find out how the delivery of my car went. Going the extra mile to ensure 8 was satisfied with the shipping service. That’s great.

    I recently moved my mother-in-law’s vehicle to California, and I was a bit worried about it initially. (I’ve had some interesting challenges in the past.). I contacted Sonic Auto Transportation and David Carter immediately put me at ease. The pricing was clear, the process was laid out, and the delivery was ahead of schedule. Fortunately I don’t have a need to transport vehicles often, but if I do, I’m reaching out to Sonic Auto Transport. Thanks David!

    John Gardner at Sonic was very helpful. Decided to ship care from OH to CA last minute during the holidays. He handled a carrier cancellation the day prior to initial pickup by working on his day off. He found me a new carrier with a similar quote in a timely fashion. He was always responsive and helpful. Would recommend working with John in the future.

    John Gardner as Sonic was excellent to work with. Provided excellent customer service and constant communication during the shipping process. Highly recommend working with John at Sonic.

    Felix and driver Dan are very professional.
    Helped me get 3 cars transported from over 2,000 miles very on time without any scratches.

    I had my car transported from Ohio to California and it was a great experience with the transfer. Daniel helped me every step of the way and was great in letting me know how things were going if I ever had any questions about the transport. I would definitely recommend.

    Vincent was a great support doing his best to find a driver at a reasonable price for my big van, delivering from Alabama to West coast. They did a good job to delivering the car on the promised date. Thank you.

    Thea Morris was amazing! I was shipping my Toyota Corolla from Washington state to Texas, and it was honestly 10x smoother than I expected. I went with Sonic because it was the cheapest quote I got, and I was so pleased with how it went. Thea was great in helping answer all the questions I had, and I was never left waiting around for an answer. Thanks so much for everything!

    Mary is the best hands down! She got my Ford Focus from Florida to Texas. It was my first time using a service like this, she was reassuring and patient with me. Even when there was a delay she worked with the driver team to see when my car would arrive. I would recommend Mary to anyone!

    I used Sonic Transportation to transport my 2004 F-150 and frankly, it was the first time I needed this service. When you put your name out there, you get an avalanche of texts, emails and phone calls. I initially chose Sonic based on price, not the lowest but about in the middle. I can’t recommend Sonic Transportation enough! My representative, Christian, bent over backwards and worked overtime to get my vehicle back safely. Christian was in contact regularly during the process and was very responsive to my requests. Thank you Christian and Sonic Transportation!

    John took care of getting my daughters car transported across the country from Orlando to Denver! He always followed thru with everything, price was best! The driver was great and broker at drop off! Smooth process and will be happy to use them again! Thank u for making sure my daughter had a car to drive on time!!!!!!

    I sought car transport from coast to coast and I got hooked up with John Gardner of sonic auto transport. From the first phone call, he was very professional, respectful and courteous and clear with everything. We even had a last minute mishap with transport and he managed to fix it right away for me. He gave me constant updates with the driver and spoke to him on my behalf when I was traveling. Will definitely use again in the future if I need any car transport. Thank you so much John Gardner.

    I would give 20 stars. I transported a 2017 Toyota Sienna, quoted and paid $1300 from Spokane Valley, Washington to Ogilvie Minnesota. Alex is very polite, kind and keeps her promise. Shipping rates reasonable and on time. Alex sent very soft, polite, kind and good drivers each time. I would use Sonic Auto transport again and again. I recommend Sonic to everyone who has transportation needs.

    John was my broker for Sonic Auto Transportation and he did a superb job in communicating with me through the entire process.

    I requested that 2 BMWs be transported from Lorton, VA to Orlando, FL and although they were issues beyond their control (flat tire of the original transporter) the broker was able to immediately find another transporter, and both vehicles were still delivered on the original schedule date.
    The price quoted was $950 however with the extra belongings in each vehicle it went up to $1250 which was reasonable.

    Joseph was very nice. He went far and beyond to find me a driver. I had to ship my car from Sioux Falls, SD to Topsham, ME. The car arrived in good condition. The whole process went very smoothly. I would definitely recommend Sonic Auto transportation.

    I chose Sonic Auto because majority of the reviews were good and they had the best quote. $575 from Dallas to Los Angeles. Car transportation service is volatile but Stella Newman came thru. Day of transportation my original driver cancelled due to truck maintenance issues. I was prepared for this very issue and in this industry you have to be prepared. Fortunately Stella found me a driver same day as my contract but I had to pay $25.00 more than my original quote – not bad compared to other situations. If your looking to transport a car, be prepared for any situation. In the end my car was delivered to my satisfaction within budget.

    Stella Newman did a great job getting my Ford F150 from Fl to TN after it broke down on vacation. Her pricing was fair and inline with the quote. She kept me informed during the entire process. Awesome Job Stella!

    Ellie worked with us get a driver under a very tight deadline.

    it all happened over Memorial Day weekend which was challenging but she was able to secure a highly rated driver.

    The Mustang was transported from San Diego to Fort Worth. It even arrived 1 day earlier than expected.

    Thanks for all your help!!

    Alex frost from Sonic auto transportation was an very helpful dispatcher, and did everything possible to find me an driver in an reasonable timeframe. My vehicle was delivered on time on the expected date, and all communication went well. I would definitely recommend Sonic auto transportation for any transporting needs !

    Demian is the man!! He went above and beyond to find me a transport. Even when we had a late cancelation he found a replacement same day. Transaction was fast and easy. Carrier was extremely Profesional and insured. Car arrived in perfect condition. I highly recommend this Sonic transportation. Ask for Demian, he will take care of you. Thanks again for everything .

    Bianca was great to work with. She was always helpful and provided plenty of information to all of my questions. We had an issue with the first driver but she found a second driver who could pick up the car a week later, although at a higher price. Aside from that, it was a pleasure to work with Bianca and she made the shipping experience very easy.

    I have to say, I find it curious to read other reviewers who also had an issue with their first driver on the day their car was to be picked up, and then ended up with a second driver at a higher cost. Sonic was the second company I went to after having this same “issue with the first driver” with Pride Car Shipping. I cancelled business with Pride after the second driver was quoted at a much higher price and went to Sonic, hoping everything would go more smoothly. Once again though, there was an issue with the first driver on the morning of the scheduled pick up. And once again we couldn’t get another driver to honor the originally quoted price so I was left with no choice but to pay a higher price for a second driver as I had a fast approaching deadline to ship the car.

    I enjoyed working with Bianca and she really was friendly and helpful. I’m not faulting Sonic for the problem with the first driver, but there seems to be an alarming tendency in this industry for the first driver to fall through at the last minute and then to end up paying more for a second driver. If you’re planning to ship a car, just be aware that you may encounter the same experience.

    The team at Sonic did a great job in coordinating and managing a vehicle transport for my family. Fiona Rivera lead the effort and was very professional and responsive to questions we had. She was great to work with. I would recommend their services.

    Highly recommend working with Diego at Sonic auto. Fast transport, unbeatable price and great customer service!

    Luke was very fast and reliable with communication. Had some issues with our first driver however Luke found us another in less than 24 hours.

    Alex Frost is the man!! In today’s world it is hard to find such a stand up guy. He came through on every thing he said. If you like me have read the horror stories of shipping a car rest assured this is your company just ask for Alex Frost

    Dear Liz, we appreciate your detailed feedback. On behalf of the entire Sonic Auto Transportation Team, we would like to apologize for the inconvenience caused. We always try to communicate properly and stick to all our customers’ requirements. We are so sorry we couldn’t do that this time. As for the price change, the price provided was just an option for the only available driver on your route. We always keep our customers updated on their options. We are terrified by the negative experience you faced. Please, accept our apologies. We will investigate your order and offer a suitable resolution. Thank you for your time!

    Sonic Auto Transportation signed a contract with us four weeks in advance of our needed shipping date. They were priced similar to other transport companies. We needed my aging mother’s car shipped from CA to TX to accommodate her wheelchair. I received confirmation a week out, the day before and the day of shipping. At the time the driver supposed to show up, I got a cancelation notice via text. No one would call me back until the next day. When they finally called, I stressed I needed the car by a certain date, they said they could do it, but it would be double the cost from $1,000 to $2,100. This was true extortion. I have since shipped with another company and had a smooth experience. Do not use this company.

    Levi Fisher is super responsive and professional! It made the process of shipping my car so simple and stress free. I definitely recommend working with him and Sonic Auto. This was my second time and I’ll be using them a third soon!

    John was very helpful and kind! He went out of his way to ensure safe transport of our vehicles! I will use this company and recommend John to others!

    Great communication. Choose really good reliable carrier and didn’t give me the run around when things didn’t go as planned. Things happen if you don’t know that about transportation you’re setting yourself up for failure. Anabel is great! Got the job done and was so friendly and helpful!

    Fiona and her assistant were extremely pleasant, resourceful, knowledgeable, and provided all information that I needed whenever I asked about the shipping of my vehicle. It arrived in the timeframe that they said it would, and it was a seamless transition. I will definitely use them in the future. Their professionalism was what won me!!

    I had a great experience was a lot of help and they always get you what you need I enjoying talking to Fatima very sweet very helpful and always keep you posted with all services you needed thank you again God bless

    Amber was very helpful and professional in answering all of my questions and scheduling a driver. My car arrived a day earlier than expected.

    My happy delegate !
    After severval quote from carries and broker, i decided to choose Sonic Auto Transportation, because they have the bumper insurance for my Toyota Camry transport from TX to CA. But the most important is the representative of the transportation, Bianca, she make everything clearly and easily.
    Once again, this is my happy feeling, the prestige and experience transportation with good price, Sonic Auto Transportation, and Bianca, she is skillfull and freindly with high conscientious. Besides, i need to thanks to Baba Logistic Transportation, they are good driver, good service.
    Thank you for everything, thank you Bianca. I love you. Bianca.
