“my go-to auto transporter: My husband and I were looking for a moving company that would handle our sports car with care. We had to ask around Jacksonville since we were new in town. Someone recommended Auto Rail Forwarders to us. We were not disappointed and will ask for their services in future. Bethany P. – (Jacksonville, Florida)”
“Professional and helpful company: Auto Rail Forwarders is among the moving companies that our business relies on. Their entire team is reliable right from the moment you make your call up to the day when your car is actually moved. I totally like their timely ability to move vehicles across the country. Benito D. – (Halifax, Miami)”
“Horrific company. Do yourself a favour and look up reviews on other websites as well.”
“This business is run by a Gerald "Gerry" L. Giovannetti. He is the owner and only employee of this company. He was no other employees, equipment, trucks, train or ships, despite what he may say. I say this because he will lie about all of these at some point, when speaking to a customer. On top of this, he has been banned from receiving tips from, banned from the Halifax port, and banned from LoadLink, all services that shippers use. Take this into account. He habitually bankrupts or dissolves his company and goes under other names, such as Motor Vehicle Shipping, Giamac Inc, WW Transport Solutions Inc., etc. This allows him to continue scamming people over and over. Shipments will get delayed, there will constantly be promises of impending shipment and then more excuses when it doesn't actually happen. Gerry will always make up some excuse that sounds plausible, but he will never provide evidence of any of these.”
“They deserve less then 1 star took my money and never delivered my vehicle. I have been trying to get my money back but all I hear is we will look into it.”
“Just the worst company to deal with. 2 weeks late on getting a unit from Alberta to New Brunswick. Call Hansen's they have done great work for us since.”
