Cars Train

What's the best way to get a car from the Pacific Northwest to New England?

A friend has moved from here to there and doesn't want to drive her car across the country. She has looked into closed-car train transport and can't find any company that will do it going eastward. (Westward, sure, but that's not helpful.)

She has found trucking companies that will do open-air transport but keeps reading on webpages about nightmare situations (stolen/vandalized cars, stolen property from inside the vehicle, "missing" keys) so would rather not go that route.

Are there companies out there that are reputable, safe and reliable and will get a car from west to east?
Self-driving the car is not feasible - it would take much too long and she can't take that kind of time off work.

Some other person or entity (likely someone getting paid) driving it for her.

As to the hiring of transport, check with car clubs and or specialty auto dealerd in the area as they may know of a reputable firm.
