Default Bay Area GT3 Logistics suggestions

I have a trip planned to tour the Pacific North West with my wife 7/11-7/21 (driving my GT3T). I have shipping arranged round trip for my GT3 arriving Portland and back to Texas from Seattle. However my son wants to see UCLA, Occidental and USC and I can do it 6/29-7/4. I am seriously considering road tripping it with him to LA. It would be great bonding time etc. We would then take the PCH from LA to the Bay Area and drop the car off for "service" on 7/5 and fly back to Houston. On 7/11 I arrive with wife in tow to Portland OR. I need to get my GT3 from SF to Porsche of Beaverton by 7/10. Questions are where to drop off for "service" in Norcal (who would be cool dealing with my logistics issues and "servicing" my car) and suggestions on getting the car to Portland from SF no later than 7/10 5 days later. This might be to difficult to thread but if possible definitely want to do it and ruin the value to my GT3. Of course I'll post up photos here of the whole trip! Thanks in advance for suggestions from all of you Bay Area Rennlisters.

Walnut Creek Porsche is very good as well. That's where I bought mine and have had it serviced. Let me know, and I can send contacts.

Gunter at porsche of fremont
feel free to try other dealers but get ready for disappointment. I just had a rector do a major fk up on my car and don't bother with Carlsen.
shipping, call early, like now.
pm me and I can give you the one I use. but I do not know his availability.

Great advice. Ok I have a broker that is well know to PNH and other working on this too. I am contacting Gunter. My son and I leave Houston 6/29 and stay with friends that eve in Midland TX. 6/30 we push hard to get through NM to Flagstaff. Next morning up easy drive to Palm Springs, cigars cocktails and golf. Next day chip shot to LA. Tour him through UCLA, USC and Occidental. Bang around my old stomping grounds in South Bay, Malibu, Santa Barbara. Then up to Monterrey on the 1. Fourth of July at the Golden Gate. 7/5 drop the car with Gunter - we fly back to HTown. It gets shipped to Porsche of Beaverton. My wife and I fly to Portland 7/11. two week on the road Pacific NW. Drop car in seattle 7/22. Fly home wait for filthy car to arrive home

Sounds like an amazing trip. I really like Desert Willow Golf in Palm Desert. Two courses, beautiful and challenging and best played early morning in June

I think I found mooty's guy on IG awhile back If it's Joey, he seems to be very good for shipping and I hope to be using him for shipping my 488 from SF to LA later this month or in early June

I use Carlsen for Porsche service in Redwood City in the peninsula if you need anything near there. Sales, would not give them a penny if I found it on the ground, but service I have to say to date has been great / above and beyond. Beto is my service advisor there if it helps
