Car Shipping

As one of the biggest manufacturers and users of cars in the world, the US has a huge demand for relocation and auto transport services to all 50 states. With more than 1 billion vehicles currently active in the US alone, it’s no surprise that people in all states are looking a way to effortlessly transfer their auto to a different address.

Vehicle transportation services

There are many different reasons why a person would choose to have a car transported from one location to the next, the most common being:

  • Relocation to a different address and/or state;
  • New purchase at an online auction out of state;
  • Sending a car to a relative out of state;
  • Car dealership increasing their car park numbers;
  • Exotic or super car relocation;
  • Vehicle is heading to a mechanic out of state;
  • Car being sold to a buyer.

Regardless of the circumstances, the reason or the distance of the relocation, our auto transportation platform will connect you with the right transportation company. This saves you the time to look and search for a service which is constantly on the move, you won’t have to struggle finding the best rate possible, but will automatically be paired with vetted professionals and car shipping companies in your area.

How is the service carried out

The details of the transportation service entirely depend on the type of vehicle which you will be having transported. If it’s a regular sized family car, you can book an open auto transport trailer since the dimensions of the car are not as demanding as a FORD F150’s would be.

There are generally two types of vehicle transport services – with an open trailer, or enclosed car transporters. Car movers can suggest the proper type of trailer for the transport, however, at the end of the day the choice is yours – each transport type has its pros and cons (more about those you can learn on the individual pages for those particular car transportation services).

Here’s How Shipping Cars Works

We connect you with a professional auto transport carrier who will pick up your vehicle from its address as long as your area allows for the safe maneuvering of an 18-wheeler. You have to make sure the vehicle is operational, is rolling, steering and breaking before the transport arrives, or in cases where it is not, you need to let us know in advance – a winch will be provided.

In cases where the vehicle is immovable, the car transport company will provide a telescopic crane, which allows for the safe and precise pick-up of the vehicle. This will increase the rate of the service, because it’s requires specialized equipment which not all car shipping services provide.

The transportation itself will occur on a specific date, which will be specified by the carrier. Within booking, you will be given a window during which the pick-up will occur – some carriers provide a narrower window for pick-up and delivery, than other companies.

After the vehicle has been rolled onto the transport trailer it will be secured and the car shipping provider will be on their way. They can provide an estimate on the arrival time for the end destination, however, keep in mind that it can vary depending on the time of year and the availability of transports in that area.

How are Car Shipping Quotes Done

Car moving companies will generally provide an estimate immediately after we submit your order onto the market. Their estimation will depend generally on a couple of factors, mainly:

  • The time of year;
  • Current market prices;
  • The type of transport job;
  • Size and number of vehicles;
  • Value of the vehicle.

Auto moving companies will generally provide an estimate which is pretty close to the final cost of the service. Once the vehicle has been picked up the price is final and it is illegal for the price to change in case there are some extraordinary circumstances such as acts of god, extreme bad weather and a change of drop-off destination.
