Generally your vehicle will be shipped on an open carrier, like one of the ones you’ve probably seen at car dealerships hauling cars to and from. This is usually the best way to go because there are plenty of these trucks on the road and we take care of your car shipment by negotiating with one of these professional car shippers. Another option for you to consider is enclosed shipping. These trucks are a lot like the big rig trucks you see hauling produce and stuff, except they haul cars instead. It is known it’s safer in an enclosed truck, but this service is more expensive. We generally recommend enclosed carrier if you need a luxury and exotic car shipping, classic car transport, sport car or custom automobile shipping, that really can’t be exposed to the elements.
Usually 2 weeks before your 1st available date would be the best. We do understand that not all the time that can be done, that’s why we will do our best to provide the best based on your terms. We try to accommodate within a window of 4 business days. The more flexibility you can provide would give us a leverage to negotiate a better driver with a better price.
Shipping vehicle prices depend on several factors such as distance, type of a vehicle, flexibility, if it will be shipped via a well traveled route or even if it will be shipped during high season or not.

This industry is route-based. As such, times will vary, but usually the average 350 miles per day. Trucks are limited by federal laws, as well as the requirement to stop at every weigh station on the road. This can sometimes mean that delays can happen, but for the most part trucks can go on average 350 miles per day.
No. Federal law prohibits auto carriers from transporting “household goods,” so anything that is in your car must be removed before transport. Not only are trucks prohibited from carrying household goods, but too much weight can actually put a truck over its weight limit at the weigh station, causing unwanted – and unneeded – delays, making you wait for your vehicle. However, you may put light objects – such as blankets, clothes, and pillows – in the trunk of your car, provided that it is less than 75lbs. This is to make sure that the trucks meet their weight requirements and that the “junk in the trunk” is not household items. Don’t forget, however, that any personal items that are left in your vehicle are NOT covered by the trucks insurance, and as such you are personally liable for any damage during transport.
Yes and no. We need someone there to sign the contract (also known as the Bill of Lading) between you and the truck driver. If you can’t be there, make sure you have a friend or relative that can be there in order to sign the bill of lading and avoid unnecessary delays. Someone is also required to be present to do a walk-around inspection with the truck driver. This is to note any damages to the vehicle before transport. So make sure you arrange for someone to be there if you cannot be.
