Does anyone know a good Car Transport Company in the Los Angeles Area?

I'm looking to bring my Triumph sports car into the country from the UK: I'm arranging shipping to Port Hueneme near Ventura, but still need it transporting on a flatbed to my home in Van Nuys. It's 50 miles each way.

Does anyone in the SoCal are know of a company that can do this? I'm looking on CL but not having any real luck.

Thanks!
Bruce

If it can't be driven from Ventura to Van Nuys, I would consider placing an ad on CL, I'm sure that there are people with flatbeds out there looking for side work.

Thanks: I think I'll do that. It can't be driven: but it will at least roll and steer.

Thanks, I think I'll look into this as well.......I don't trust my skills much but at the end of the day it's 51 miles of almost 100% freeways so I'm sure I can manage. I think I can find a friend I can bribe to help me with loading and the Spitfire is so light that two strong people can pretty much pick up the back end.......

If your friend has a hitch, here is what came up on UHaul's site using a Friday pick-up from Ventura to Van Nuys-
