What is the cost to ship a vehicle?


Your cost is going to be based on a couple of variables; pickup and delivery locations, distance, open or enclosed carrier, type of vehicle and condition of vehicle. To determine the exact cost of your auto transport, we strongly recommend speaking to one of our transport specialist with specifics about your move.

How long does it take to ship a vehicle?


It all depends on the location and destination of the vehicle. On average vehicle transports take 1-2 weeks. Pick-up times can be anywhere from 1-3 days and an additional 5-8 days for delivery.

Do you guarantee pickup/delivery date?


 No – Although we are very accurate with our pickup/delivery dates, we do request a 3-4 day window for most common metropolitan areas and a 5-6 day window for uncommon areas.

Can I pack things in my vehicle?


By law, the Department of Transportation does not allow auto carriers to transport household goods (personal belongings) in vehicles being transported. Personal belongings are not covered by the carrier’s insurance. An auto carrier can be fined and your personal belongings can be impounded if they are pulled over for inspection.

How far in advance should I book?


To better meet your pick-up and delivery requirements, we suggest you schedule your vehicle transport a week in advance. If you are in need of expedite auto transport we have those services available.

Do you guarantee pickup/delivery time?


No – Although we are very accurate with our pickup/delivery times, ETA’s are just approximates and serve the customer as a general guide to the status of their vehicle.

What should I do if there’s any damage to my vehicle?
