In the past I've had great luck with recommendations from this list, so:

I'm moving the end of September. I'm looking for a shipping company that can ship my jeep and belongings (1 pallet) to Christiansted.

Does anyone have recommendations? I've had a couple quotes, but wanted to see if anyone had any other suggestions.

Thanks!

My suggestion is separate the car and pallet in your questions to the shipping company - just shipping a pallet to Miami and then to STX I suggest VIcargo - shipping a car will depend on what port it will be leaving from.

I thought it was one of those smaller Jeeps that fits on a pallet:D

we used crowley for the car and vi cargo for the household stuff.

the car took a bit longer than i would have liked . we moved in november so not sure if that had anything to do with the length of time?? next year inventory being shipped?

Tropical ships both LCL (pallet) and vehicles from south Florida (West Palm or Miami), VI Cargo ships from Miami also. Tropical rates may be a little higher, but the customer service is excellent.

Agree with vicanuck, Paradise Freight has been great to deal with for us on STX!
