Boundary creek to Carey Creek shuttle

I need to make a reservation for two vehicles to be shuttled from boundary creek on the middle fork to Carey creek on the Main. The three companies I found are priced significantly different. Any experiences out there anyone would like to share with All Rivers Shuttle, Central Idaho River Shuttls and Blackadar? Thanks!

blackadar has always had the cars there in one piece. I have heard stories of them going out of their way to get cars there.

We had another company than those you mentioned run one once. There was trailer damage and they said it must have happened after they parked it on the road. Problem was on the side of the trailer not next to the road. Go figure.

IMO, Blackadar is worth the dough.

Always used All Rivers and they were great. Im going to try Pat at Central Idaho this year. Met him at the IWA Gear swap. Nice guy and lower rates. He uses all school teachers as drivers. Figure we trust them with kids so truck should be ok.

I've used Central Idaho Shuttles a couple times now. Good prices, solid service before the trip and the trucks were there just fine. Being able to fill out all the info online is a plus, as well.

Anyway, I'd recommend them, no problem.

We have used Pat with CIRS for the past three years on our Middle and Main trips. Never a problem and everything was in one piece when we got there. And the cold beer helps.

I would only use one of those companies and it starts with a B.
I have used Blackadar many times and they are great.

As everyone has said Blackadar is the one to use. We just got off the MF River & all was good.

Pat at central did our middle main and no issues. I think they are in grangeville seems like it's less effort for them to drop off drivers at boundary since they run the middle and they would take the mccall route back home

Hey, if you want me to take a dump in a box and mark it "guaranteed", I will. I got spare time.
