Supras In Vegas is the best Supra Meet in the country and I had to go last year. It lived up to my expectations and my dad became a Supra Convert. We will be attending SIV 2016 again this year. Last year I shipped the cars via Enclosed Trailer from CT to Vegas. The company I used was very professional and had great communication. The cars were delivered as requested on Tuesday, before the events began. On Sunday after the events had ended they were waiting at the Excalibur to load the cars and take them back to CT.

I have had a lot of questions and interest regarding a transport for this years SIV. The two biggest concerns are quality of the shippers and cost of the shipment. The best way to keep costs down would be to fill the entire trailer. I have contacted the shipping company and they put the dates on their schedule. As an added bonus, they recently purchased a new trailer with a liftgate for anyone who was concerned about clearance. If you are interested please respond here. Feel free to contact me privately with any questions.

Matt, this is perfect, I want to arrive on Tuesday with my girlfriend and drive to California for a day:nervous: How many cars can it hold? Will he come down to PA, or will I have to drive up there?

Steve, I was looking to arrive on Tuesday as well. My dad and I are planning on driving to the Grand Canyon. I believe the carrier holds 6 cars. We can certainly discuss additional pickup locations once we know who all is in.

I would be down depending on the cost, I am in DE and if Steve was to join we could easily meet at one spot to load two cars.

Very much interested. I usually ship enclosed for all the events I go to. If we guarantee the shipper a full load then he might be able to work the price, but regardless please find out prices and we take it from there. Thanks in advance!!!

I have been getting a lot of interest lately regarding the shipment. I am still in the process of finalizing a price with the shipper, but right now we are at around $1,300 per car each way if we take all six spaces. With this they will deliver the cars on the day of our choosing and wait out west and pick the cars up on the day of our choosing. There is a lot of value here as last year I did not want to leave Vegas without my cars already being on the trailer headed back east. The shippers were waiting at the Excalibur after the last event on Sunday; it saved me an extra nights hotel and allowed me to get back to work a day early. For comparison, shipping enclosed carrier for a solo car can be around $1 per mile and this roundtrip is over 5000 miles.
