What Our Customers Say
East Coast West Coast Express - Atlanta Reviews
- Sophie M.Atlanta
We needed to move our son's car from Atlanta to California - I had made a booking with another company... read more and then read the reviews and I was very nervous about sending the car. I then came across East Coast West Coast and made a booking with them. I am very happy to say that the driver Vlad was on time in fact on the dot at 11 am and arrived on time the day he said that he would. The whole team including Hank was very easy and friendly to work with. All in all I was extremely satisfied with the service. read less8/25/2017
