Question Shipping Car Overseas

I am in the military and transferring to Heidelberg, Germany. I have a 2010 Ford Mustang that I want to take with me since I'll be over there for a couple of years. Does anybody know of a good car shipping company? I found this company Ship Overseas, Inc. International Car Shipping and Global Vehicle Transport Services with good rates but I'm more concerned with service and the safety of my car. Has anybody used them? It would be helpful to know.

Honestly, I'd be much more tempted to sell the 'stang and buy something in Germany, and ship it back to the US when your tour is over. That way you only have to pay to have it shipped once, and you can bring back a car that's not sold in the US.

I'd also go with this, I wouldn't trust a shipping company with shipping a car not once, but twice. Also there's a lot of good cars you can get there that are just as good as the Mustang, probably around the same price too.

Don't even buy a car and when you get there, pick up a Focus RS. You'll be glad you did.

I'm really attached to my car. I don't mind paying to ship it twice, I just want to find a reputable company to do it.
