Anthony does a bait and switch.

Last December I contracted with Anthony to ship my car from Florida to Michigan in May, 2016 and back to Florida in October 2016. Anthony quoted a fee of $150 each way for his service and $500. each way for the carrier. Like a fool I paid Anthony $300. for his total fee. When it came time to ship from Florida the charge was $850 or $350 more than Anthony quoted. To top it off Anthony refuses to refund his $150. fee that was not due until October, 2016. I have since learned that contracting with a broker instead of the actual hauler is much riskier. Contracting with Anthony is by far the riskiest.

Do not deal with Anthony Amato

Anthony called us per our inquiry in March 2016 to have a vehicle shipped from Minnesota to central Florida. His quote of $560.00 was acceptable, so we called him and made arrangements. He said he required a $150 deposit, which we paid over the phone. 4 days later, I called Anthony to ask how to contact the shipper to make payment arrangements. He informed me that $670.00 would be due on the day of delivery, and he gave me the shippers contact information. I questioned this increase in shipping costs, which Anthony told me that the vehicle was "outside of a major city", and the cost was more. I questioned why the cost increased $110.00 4 days later, even when I gave him the exact address when we talked the first time. I also mentioned that we gave a $150.00 deposit; which he then stated that was his broker fee, and not a deposit for the shipping cost. I still agreed, as his "fee" plus the now new shipping cost was still within the quotes we received from other shippers. When the vehicle arrived on March 21. 2016, the carrier informed me that $750.00 was due; I had to pay it to get my vehicle. I immediately called Anthony, who stated he was sorry, and would refund me $50.00 in the form of a Visa or MC gift card, and I would have it an two weeks. In April, no card, so I emailed and called Anthony. He stated in an email: "thank you for your patience i will take care of you soon i have been out of the office as soon as i get back i will email you thanks". April 2, 2016, and no card or refund. I called again. This time he stated "Your on the list for a $50 gas card", and as soon as I buy them, you'll get one. Anthony operates in a fraudulent manner, and should be avoided.

RE TRANSPORT OF HONDA TO TEXAS

Update by user Mar 19, 2016

another reputable company is SHIP YOUR CAR NOW

Original review posted by user Mar 19, 2016
I spoke with someone called Anthony Amato, in November 2015 about transporting my vehicle from Florida to Texas, he asked for $150.00 deposit which I paid via credit card, 2-days later I had change of plans and no longer wanted the shipping done. I called Anthony and told him I no longe needed to ship the car, he told me I could not have my $--150.00 back since this was non-refundable, but he would give me a credit for 1-year which was ridiculous, however last week I called him about shipping again he told me that the driver fee is $575.00 and that the total amount is $750.00. I asked around and no other company fee is that high. I decided not to use him and will be disputing my $150.00 since I believe that he scammed me out of my hard earned monies. The credit card company will go after him and this will teach him a lesson. DONT EVER DO ANY BUSINESS ITH THIS SCAM ARTIST, HE IS A FAST TALKER, A LIAR AND A THIEF.
