Couple of question about shipping

I am looking for a shipper.

I Need to move 650S from Miami to New York.

Need some info about it because I'm a layman in vehicle transportation.

How to prepare a car for transportation? How to choose a carrier? What are the current quotas?

This is the case when you have to look for a quote yourself.

You probably won’t be picking your shipper. That will likely be chosen by the broker. When you call a broker, they will quote you a price. Say $2000. They are then going to post the gig on a board for all trucking cos to see. They will receive various bids on the gig. If they get a bid for $1500, the broker will keep $500 and you’ll pay the driver the other $1500.
Getting quotes from multiple brokers won’t help you much, as they are going to all be posting the same gig to the same group of trucking companies.

To get your car ready it is best to have it cleaned inside and out, then take A LOT of photos the day before or the day of pickup. A good carrier should do this anyway. Most carriers want as little fuel as possible. I found an article about across country shipping, there's a lot of information about shipping and preparing car.
