Reliable is the best in the biz IMO, but you'll pay for it. GM used Reliable, and I interacted with them regularly, both back office and drivers. Back office was always great, but the drivers were even better. I remember during the Bison shoot, we were on a remote island that had low trees. The driver parked right after the ferry because he didn't want to scratch his truck on the low trees and harm the reputation of himself or the company. He personally helped us camo the trucks we were shooting then helped us drive them to the location. Really standup dude. If you want a car to make it without damage, Reliable is the company.
Reliable is not happening... $3133 was their quote :nope:
From what I understand, there are brokers for this that will get you several quotes from different companies. I don't know much more than that as the BMW :dillerman: handled it for me and I felt that $450 was reasonable so I didn't look elsewhere.

Question what were your dealer fees? You bought from
Florida as well right ? My dealer is asking about my zip code etc and I am asking whether or not they are attempting to collect sales tax on behalf of Cali. I don’t want to be double taxed.

You should pay taxes in your home state... I paid about $700 in NC for reg/sales tax on the Beemah. I believe the :dillerman: fees were like $200, it was much less than here.

I think I paid $21.4k + $450 shipping, $200 :dillerman: rape fees and $700ish in NC rape fees.

Yea the dealerbae mentioned something about reciprocal state agreements or whatever... I have never heard of it ... but we shall see.

$200 dillerman fees is :notbad: I’m assuming they are going to be higher ... Reno wanted $750-800 which was insane ...

Did you go enclosed ? And you mentioned your :dillerman: had a company quote you ... ?

Yeah reciprocal states is a good thing, it just means that the :dillerman: can handle everything for you like if you bought it in CA, they will pay the taxes and stuff to CA, you do everything through them. You don't have to pay FL taxes. I bought the C5 in South Carolina this was as well (Charlotte is 30 minutes from SC so people buy cars there all of the time).

Mine was shipped on an open car hauler like the ones you see new cars being delivered on, it got very dirty as it was November and rainy, but it arrived without a scratch or ding, all was good, it was nerve racking though.

The :dillerman: I purchased through seems to specialize in selling off lease enthusiast stuff, they had some pretty high end cars so I think delivery is normal (and yet the process was still painful). Basically they paid the broker my $450, she called me and we set the dates and stuff and that was all I had to do.

:dillerman: :tits: referred me to a transport company $1495 quote through them... which seems :notbad: they are supposedly double insured and :dill: with this :dillerman: all the time.

So the :dill: is getting closer... :gaydance: I am waiting on Cayla to get back to me with a few questions like if the car is 50 state legal and the whole registration/piece.

And I just got hit with a $899 dealer doc fee. :wtf: :oops: What's wrong with this non sense... literally and they TAX the fee too so it's nearly 1k for their "FEE" on top of the selling price.

But I guess you’re still paying the $1300 in :dillerman: fees then. Maybe they’ll lower them if you fly in? Less work on their end since they don’t have to deal with the shipping company at all?

I have no major issues with the $1495 shipping quote, its $420 higher than the others I have gotten, but at least it's through the :dillerman: so I have a bit more faith...

I have an issue with the fucking bullshit fees they tried to hit me with. She gave me an in state quote after specifically stated many times that I am out of state... like how hard can that be?
Overall I almost :rage: 'ed out of the :dill.

Now we're looking at around $1176 in :dillerman: total fees (Whatever the shit they are, down from $1500 earlier when she was quoting me in state BS), even with that + shipping it is still looking decent. I'll see if I can perhaps reduce it by $500 but I doubt they will budge.

:notsure: the price is decent... I am just peeved that shipping + random fees are $1k higher than I thought... not THAT bad... but I am having communication issues with them at this point.

@Zillon are minis 50 state smog legal ? I asked the dealer to check but she is fking clueless... i even sent her a pic of the label... but she can't check it because "its raining" :wtf:

Those fees are fucking bullshit. You should deduct $1000 for "buyers fee". You're doing almost as much work as they are.

Wow... $1100 in fees is :fullretard: but I guess it brings the price up to normal market... :disgust:

I know on the 328i there are two different motors, one is CA legal, one isn’t. N20 is 49 state, N26 50 IIRC.

Max, ask for an itemized breakdown of the dock fee and what it goes toward. That’s where you can catch them on their bullshit

Does it matter ? They told me it’s non negotiable and that dealers charge $399-1399 in this state ... so I’ll ask for $500 of the non negotiable car price which will likely not happen either way :rage: .

The total price including shipping is $24,800 as it sits now. Which is ok. There is no way of dealing this this type of thing whether I want to ask them to itemize or not that’s what they decided to charge. These things are impossible to find... so yea

It's not that much farther than the Corvette museum. When you buy your C8 you're going to do that right?
