Moving cross-country can be overwhelming and stressful—on top of everything else you have to do, you have to move your vehicle too! Sending your car via a trustworthy car shipping company can take one more item off your list and give you the peace of mind your vehicle is being cared for across state lines!
The Unexpected Benefits of Shipping Your Vehicle
Not every vehicle is entirely roadworthy for a long road trip. Shipping that old, much-loved jalopy is a much safer option. You may want to ship that brand-new Mercedes-Benz too, we all know well the dangers of driving long miles on congested roadways and you may just be saving yourself some unnecessary repair costs from an accident or break-down.
Vehicle shipping is an excellent supplement to your vehicle purchases and sales during moving time, too. Schedule a pickup from a vehicle shipment company and enjoy the peace of mind that comes from a professional taking care of your vehicle. It’s just one more thing you don’t have to worry about—and that’s worth its weight in gold.
While shipping a car isn’t cheap, it may not be as expensive as you think, either. Consider all the costs if you were to drive the vehicle yourself. You’d have to pay for wear and tear on the vehicle, gas, overnight stays at hotels across the country and required maintenance like oil changes. As you should with any sort of large investment, weight your options with honest and thorough math. When all is said and done, you may find yourself surprised by the number of dollar bills you will save by shipping your vehicle. All it takes to be sure of your best choice for vehicle transport is some research, a small price to pay for real savings and security.

Frequently Asked Questions
Answers to Your Car Moving Questions
The hardest thing for people researching car moving companies to understand is that the prices they are getting are not hard and fast gaurantees, but rather ESTIMATES of what one company thinks it will take to get a vehicle moved promptly versus another company's opinion of what it will take. Don't be fooled, there are not carriers committed to take your vehicle at these quoted prices, the company you choose will still have to get to work getting a carrier to commit to move it at the price they quote you.
Your total price breaks down into two parts, the broker's fee (or 'deposit' as everyone calls it) and the carriers fee (your COD amount) Make no mistake about this, EVERYONE YOU ARE GETTING SALES CALLS FROM IS GOING TO BROKER YOUR MOVE. In this industry, there are brokers who try to fool you into thinking that they are the actual carriers and there are an equal amount of carriers who sell themselves on the fact that they have a truck or two but are not being honest about the fact that they broker out 90% of the orders they book. Here is a quick easy way to tell, if a company takes an up front fee, whether they call it a deposit or any other name, they are a broker. Carriers do not take any payment until the vehicle is delivered.
In our opinion, you are crazy to do so. Have you ever been paid up front for the work that you perform for your employer? Why would you pay a fee up front when there are reliable and trustworthy companies like ours that won't ask for it until we provide you with your carriers details?
The average transit time from pick up to delivery on any vehicle going coast to coast will be between one and two weeks. From there you can figure your transit time based on how far your vehicle is traveling, i.e. from either coast to the Midwest might average 3-7 days.
