My dad bought my son a car up in Wisconsin and we needed to get it down to Florida. I did a bunch of research online and found that Ship A Car was part of the Better Business Bureau. They had very good reviews. One thing I liked about them a lot was that they didn't badger me with calls all the time, unlike the other companies that I contacted.   Doug was the rep I had and he was wonderful and had very good communication. My dad lives in the middle of nowhere so we made a decision to add more money to the initial quote so that somebody would pick up the car. The driver was very nice and polite. He took pictures of the car. The car was perfect when it arrived and it was just like it was shipped when it left my dad's house. Everything was wonderful. We had such a good experience that my mother-in-law is using Ship A Car to ship her car out to Arizona at the end of the month.

I received excellent service from Len of ship a car. He was thorough, pleasant to work with, and committed to helping me find a transport service. The company he contracted with was outstanding, great service, my car arrived in a timely manner in perfect condition...except for a few bugs on the windshield!! I highly recommend Len and his company.

I recently shipped a car from Las Vegas, Nevada to Lilburn, Georgia. While there were some communication problems on the pickup date, the process was otherwise smooth, and the car was delivered quickly and in good condition. I was well served by Chris Wukich throughout the transaction, and he was very helpful when I needed him most on the pickup date. Please thank him for his excellent service.

(Translated by Google) Great company and service. They picked up my car in California and delivered it to me in Miami in less than 1 week without a scratch and at a very reasonable price. (Original) Gran empresa y servicio. Recogieron mi coche en California y me lo entregaron en Miami en menos de 1 semana sin un rasguño y a un precio muy razonable.
Daniel Mayor
The hallmark of a good company is not if there is ever a problem but HOW they handle the problem. Turns out the problem I had was initially a major pain and hardship to both of us due to the unscrupulousness of the subcontractor. It happens. They figured out how to circumvent a checks and balances process. Ship a Car realized that, changed their process, and took care of the situation. Kudos to them. Now...would ship again in a heartbeat. Thank you all. Ps. When you ship takes well before and after pics. Don't let the shipper driver rush you. It's your multi-thousand dollar possession. Good luck all.

We were very pleased with the services that Ship a Car Inc. delivered. Ms. Janet was such of great support with guiding us throughout the whole process. We felt very well informed especially since this was out first experience with transporting a vehicle.

After being contacted my at least 20 shipping companies, I almost gave up! Then by the grace if God I contacted Ship a car and I spoke with Bob Moran, he is the best!! He said he’d call me back in 15 mins, I don’t even think it was 15 mins, he called back and BOOM he coordinated it effortlessly!!! I can’t believe how smooth the shipping was, I wish I started with Ship A Car, excellent service.....I would HIGHLY recommend, the driver dropped the car a day early - what a plus!

"Trying to ship a Burning Man art car halfway across the country can be difficult. It’s even harder when you only have 5 days’ notice. I found (run by Ship-A-Car) purely by chance after exhausting half a dozen other providers, but when Bob Moran picked up the phone I knew was talking to a professional. He recognized the tight schedule and budget we were working with, and he I could tell he enjoyed the uniqueness of our project. He told me he would see what he could find, and he set right to work. By the next morning, Bob had a driver and a quote that fit our budget and would get the car there just in time. But of course, it couldn’t be that simple. Nothing with Burning Man ever is. We had bought a trailer on the chance that we would have to deliver the car ourselves, and now we wanted to know if the trailer could be brought too? And, would it be possible to take the car all the way to Black Rock City, instead of just to Reno? Bob took these questions and curve $@!#% with great patience and skill. He juggled our phone calls with those of his vendor and figured out a plan that would work for everyone. We were so happy. Life was good. But, like a rockslide, my partner sent me a message that changed our plans entirely. The work that Bob and I put in was flushed away. The last phone call we shared I felt like I was kicking a puppy. Bob is without a doubt one of the best brokers, sales reps, and all-around human beings that I’ve worked with in a long, long time. I feel genuinely guilty that I had to cancel our plans and take business away from him. I happily offered to pay him, at least something, for his trouble, but he very calmly and kindly declined, and wished me all the best. This review is the smallest way I could thank him for his time, effort, and consideration. I hope, if you’re reading this, that you appreciate Bob’s character, and that you’ll consider giving him a call for your shipping needs."
Martin M. New York, NY
Len went above and beyond for my car shipping experience. Great follow up and 100% transparency. 10/10 highly recommend dealing with him. He will find you the best pricing and extravagant service.
Alex Irvin
I have used your service twice now. Bob M. in Florida has taken care of me both times. I defiantly was an extremely difficult customer this past time . I was having a hard time arranging and planning my move back home. I think I had to change the date 3 times. Bob was the most understanding person and even became my friend during the process �� If anyone could ease ur mind and reassure you that everything would be ok it was Bob. I would recommend him to everyone that uses ur service He's amazing and I will cherish our friendship always.
Ellen S.
Meredith with Ship a Car, Inc. helped us to get 5 vehicles shipped across two states. She was wonderful and we highly recommend Ship a Car, Inc. We needed our cars shipped quickly. Meredith was responsive and communicative. She found us two professional drivers who both did an excellent job!
Jennifer Payne
Our golf cart business called Ship A Car Inc to send some vehicles to Florida from Mississippi. The process was real easy and there weren't any hiccups. I'd use them again!
Sid N. Jackson , MS
My recent relocation from Seattle to Pittsburgh was less stressful because of the service that Ship A Car provided—Yvonne coordinated with both my husband and I to have my car shipped. Both drivers were very nice and professional. It was a no-hassle process with the driver picking up my car on time and at my apartment, and then delivering it on time and at my apartment. Definitely recommend this service.
Toni I
What an excellent job helping us to ship a car from LA to Honolulu! Really pleased with Rita Tritt, who was always available and helpful when dealing with several unexpected issues. Recommend the service to anyone shipping a car.
Suzy B
I have been very pleased with the level of service I have received. The transport was quick and painless. The drivers were knowledgeable and respectful of my babies. The service was fast and accurate. And the setup was friendly and very helpful.
Robert Riggan
I worked with Gabriel Lopez and he was professional and a pleasure to work with. Always stayed in contact with me and gave me updates. My only complaint would be is that the price was increased but other than that the service was fine.
Cyndi Walters
Justen has shipped my motorcycles to rides all over the U.S. More often than not I've given him less-than-adequate time or extenuating circumstances, yet he always delivers like a champ. Go with Justen. He's your man.
Jeremy G. Boulder, CO
From the initial pricing request to the driver dispatched and vehicle arrival, Justen and his team at Ship A Car, Inc. do everything you’d expect from a professional hauling company. We've hired multiple drivers with Justen through Ship A Car, Inc. for the transportation of our fifth-wheel and they were nothing but accommodating, professional, knowledgeable, and available to you throughout the entire shipping process. I can honestly say that this was the fastest most efficient and fairly priced company I’ve ever worked with. The drivers arrive promptly and are able to quickly load your vehicle in the correct manner with respect to your personal property and the safety of your vehicle. Justen helped me feel safe and confident in relying on Ship A Car, Inc. to move our fifth-wheel, it gave me such peace of mind. I constantly receive superior service and have been a repeat customer and have recommended Justen at Ship A Car, Inc. to our co-workers and colleagues. Looking forward to continuing to use Ship A Car, Inc. for all of my transportation needs.
Libby Stobie Behrens
Bob was vey attentive and responsive to all my concerns and enquires. He even made a call to the destination to confirm certain elements of the shipping of the golf cart upon arrival. That little extra effort confirmed to me that I was dealing with a professional.
Norman P
Fantastic customer service throughout the process. Highly recommended.
Albert Magalio
Khaii should be promoted! He did a great job of making me feel comfortable with the service provided and making the entire experience seamless! I tried my best to give him a hard time, but his jovial behavior and demeanor made this entire experience fun and removed the stress and pressure that I felt in having my car shipped! Thanks Khaii Ross!!!! You're a real asset to this company!
Valerie H. Marietta, GA
An excellent company, I have been working with them for several years. All perfectly!
Andy B.
This was my first experience with using a transport company for a vehicle, after reading reviews about different companies I was nervous. Bob Moran with Ship A Car had some good reviews so I called him to get a quote. The price was in range with others I had called but I felt more comfortable working with Bob. I called Bob on Friday of Labor day weekend at 4:30pm, he was able to have my vehicle picked up on the following Tuesday in Colorado and delivered to me in Northern Illinois Thursday morning. The driver, Egor, called me Wednesday afternoon and we made arrangements to drop off the vehicle at 6:00am so I could get to work, he was very accommodating to my schedule. I am not one to post any reviews but I felt these guys deserved to be praised. I would definitely use them again.
The rep who answered the phone was a car person. He explained to me that his dad had lots of cars and he had a Dairy Queen and they parked their cars out front. I’ve always been around race cars and he has a racecar. So, out of all the people I talked to, whoever that rep was, he was the most knowledgeable. He is probably Ship A Car’s best salesman. The car was to be transported to my house and they said it would be here Friday. I was out of town and I was driving back from Fort Worth in the evening on Wednesday, and I get a call. The man said that he would like to drop off my car that night. I said that I was not even at my house and asked how he got down so fast. It was Wednesday. He said not to worry about it and asked if he could drop it off between 7:00 and 8:00.   I got up in the morning and my wife informed me that the sprinkler people were coming. So at 7:15, at least four pickup trucks and about eight guys showed up, and they all parked around our house. And at 7:45, a neighbor, two houses down, was replacing their fence. So, another four trucks showed up with eight guys. And accordingly, I’m going, “Where is this guy?” And sure enough, here he comes with the transport, zigzagging in between all these parked trucks. He asked where he would park. I told him to back it in our cul-de-sac and he did. Then, the local security guard asked if I was moving. I told him I was getting a car delivered. So, he stops. There must be 20 people, all watching. Then the driver asked if I knew how to drive a stick shift. He couldn’t get the car out of the carrier because he couldn’t drive a stick. So I told him I would help him. He’s got two cars in the carrier, mine, which follow in the front, and another car that’s barely turned over. It’s shaking and rattling, and he backs that out. He puts it in neutral and it’s just sitting there idly. He comes back in and gives me the keys. I asked him if he realized how much space there was between the door and the carrier and I couldn't get in the car. He’s a skinny guy so he gets in the car. I told him to wind the window down, get out of the car and let me see if I can hold on the top of the carrier, and I’ll get in like a racecar driver. So, that’s what I did. And the moment I turned on that car, I was in heaven. The sound of that car gave me goosebumps, and I backed it up probably about a half a mile per hour, super slow. I drive around all the cars and I said that I got to inspect this because it was way dustier than what the photo showed. I looked at it and it was perfect. Finally, my wife started talking to the two other people that wanted to talk to me but I said that I gotta get this in the garage and check it out. The driver was gonna leave and once he leaves, if there were any problems, it’s sorry, Charlie. Then, we paid the driver and he was all smiles because it was 1s, 5s, 10s, 20s and 50s. We hadn't had a chance to go to the bank to just give him a 100. And he got in his trailer. It was a very nice experience.
Robert of Houston, TX
I want to thank you and your company for making our first vehicle transport a great experience. You were most kind and patient with me with all my concerns. Vlad and Rasa could not be nicer and thorough people to work with. Vlad was so careful with our Jeep and Rasa kept me up to date with phone calls. I will use your company again and recommend to friends and family!
Brenda M. Gurnee, IL
Good price, great service. No surprises.
Bob Girardi

Kent H.
I needed to move my 67 Mustang to Northeast Georgia from Sarasota before Hurricane Irma. Meredith, at Ship a Car, was great at finding me an enclosed trailer to bring the car up here. It arrived in perfect condition.
William Dellert
We used Ship A Car to send a car to our son in North Carolina from California.  The service was great, the price was reasonable and Justin did a great job of coordinating the delivery.  I would use them again if the need arose.
Daniel R.
Have to admit, I was nervous because I was the one that made the arrangements for my husband's 2003 Harley Davidson Heritage Softail Classic to be shipped from New Jersey to Florida. The bike just arrived, IN PERFECT SHAPE!!! So grateful to Lawrence who kept me calm. Such a good guy and a great company.
Janice S. Naples, FL
Bob and Raffael Thank you both so very much for your Superb service and professionalism. From booking to scheduling to pickup and delivery we give you an A+. We really appreciated the communication and updates on when you would arrive and deliver, and accommodated a nearby location as our street is very narrow. Thank you Bob for following up with me when you noticed the agency my daughter selected would disappoint her. You went above and beyond to help us and met our timeframe. Thank you again Sarah C.
A pleasure to work with SHIP A CAR, INC. They arranged to p/u our GEM in mid west and transport it quickly and safely to its new home. Many thanks SHIP A CAR !
Art Rhoades
Ship a car did a wonderful job shipping my cousins car. Sam was so nice and helpful with dealing with my father. My father was trying to take care of this transaction and make all the arrangements. I was the middle person to just clarify some things. Sam took the time to explain to me of everything that was happening and told me what was required from me/my dad. It takes a lot of patience for someone to figure out the details of delivering a car. I will probably use this company if I ever need to ship a car. Thank you ship a car and also thank you Sam for the great service!!!!!
Ashley Geiger
The girl I was dealing with on the phone Lisa was very knowledgeable and helpful. She got straight to the point of needs and did not BS me.
Andre C. Memphis , TN
Bob was AMAZING! I was in such a bind and had just found out some bad news about my dad's health. Bob was very understanding and turned my situation into a positive one. He was very quick at responding back to me and very knowledgeable. It put my mind at ease and all I had to do was sit back and wait for my car to come. It took little time to travel from WA to VA and the driver was very nice as well. Bob called to check up on how the delivery went and that in itself was really nice! Showed me he truly cares about his customers! I will definitely be using this service again and have already recommended Bob to a few friends. I can't thank Bob enough for being a Knowledgeable and caring person!
Kalanit Y.
Car was shipped from PA to Las Vegas. Unload was rush rush and car was covered in dust/dirt. As most would do....Gave a cursory look over of the car and signed the bill of lading hurredly. Days later cleaned the car and found black duct tape covering a crack on the rear fiberglass spoiler. A deliberate and premeditated effort to hide the damage. Contacted ship-a-car. Justin V. Had ALWAYS been overly helpful and polite. Much to my dismay when I contacted the sub contractors insurance company they said the subs insurance was not in force. This is In direct contradiction of my agreement with shipACar. I’m hoping shipACar comes thru. Stay tuned. I will keep you posted. Weeks later. STILL NO RESPONSE/SATISFACTION Ship A Car inc sent m a subcontractor who did not have insurance in effect. I shipped FOUR cars cross country with shipacar Four. The sub hid damage under dirt and black duct tape. Shipacar basically said I did not note the damage on the bill of lading. It was hidden and they hired uninsured sub. Be aware. Spread the word. I gave them a chance to settle for a fraction of the damage. Ignored. W S. Las Vegas.
Wayne Simmons
Easy and efficient. Finding a driver was a little difficult given my location but Stephen did it! The driver, Pavel, texted me with the estimated time of pick-up which was exact. He told me what day my car would arrive and again, gave me an accurate time of delivery. All went smoothly. I would definitely recommend this company.
Car Transport
Thank you for all your assistance in securing transport. Willie was excellent! Clean, professional, communicated effectively, and was on time. I will certainly use your service again and recommend you.
John L. Worthington, OH
Excellent service. Vehicle was delivered quickly and safely. Jocelyn was very attentive and represented the company well. Will definitely use them on next transport need!
Bill Nolastname
I booked my car with Howard . To ship from Atlantic Beach Florida to Irvine California . We agreed to 1300.00 fee . That included three containers in my car upto 100lbs... upon delivery I was charged an extra $100.00 for the containers. They would NOT unload my car until I gave them the extra $100.00 dollars. I had called Howard several times on the issue and he never resolved the issue of the extra 100.00 dollars . This company is a ripoff. They are by far the most expensive ones out there. I will also be reporting them to the BBB. I was so excited to have my shipped only to have a huge negative experience with this company.
Dora Gavidia
As San Diego Auto Sales Co. We have been using Ship A Car to get vehicles from across the USA to Houston for multiple years now and it has always been A+ service, can't beat the quality and price. Recommend asking for Gabriel.
Tabitha Reefer
The rep I worked with, Lawrence Knapp was very knowledgeable, helpful and customer service oriented. He answered all my questions, and went the extra mile to save me some money. I feel our car is in good hands. I liked the tips on how to get your car ready for shipment. Lawrence communicated well through phone, text and email. He walked me through the process of signing documents so that went smoothly. He was easygoing and friendly too! I recommend Ship A Car, Inc. I got two other comparable estimates and because of Lawrence, I went with Ship A Car. A friend referred us, as she had a good experience too.
Sandy O.
We would definitely recommend the Ship A Car Inc. company. From the first contact with Theo Brown, who arranged the trip to the two drivers who picked up and delivered the car. They were professional and made us feel comfortable. We have shipped with other companies in the past, and are so glad we moved to Ship A Car Inc...Thanks to all for such great service and timely pickup and delivery of our car.
Paul/Carol J. La Quinta, CA
This was my first time using this type of service and Bob made it go very smoothly. Exceeded my every expectation and was always in contact. Price was fair and service was fast.
Michael Klabenes
We went with Ship-A-Car because we were unable to do cash to ship a car. ($900 was their quote.) I was to the understanding that there would be a $250 deposit charged when the contract was picked up and the remaining $650 would be charged upon delivery. WRONG! Ship-a-Car went with a company that does NOT do credit cards. Now we are having to work with the transport company and Ship-a-Car was able to basically take $250 from us just to do the same damned thing we could have done on our own if we had the cash. I will never use them again and will never recommend them.
Patti Thornburgh
My experience shopping for a reliable transport company was exhausting until I spoke with Lawrence at Ship A Car inc. He took all of my worries & concerns and tossed them out of the Window. He was there every step of the way start to finish. He assured me that my Car was in the best hands Possible. I highly recommended Lawrence to handle Any and all of your transport needs.
Rebecca C.
we had to move from Beverly Hills to Aventura Florida. I was really worried as to I was going to my 2 cars down there. Shop a car really made the who move simple. My 2 cars were picked up and 10 days later they were in Fl. All in all they were great and I would use them again.
Priscilla S. Avenyura, FL
Ship a Car is the best especially Meredith. She was professional, kind, courteous and our car was delivered when promised. I even received a follow up call from her to make sure everything went well with the transport. I would highly recommend Ship a Care to anyone.
M Trainor
I shipped my car. They were very helpful throughout the process and were open to help whenever needed. The agent they used was equally trustworthy and helpful, with everyone going out of their way to help. Highly recommend them!
Stewart Morgan
i am very pleased with Jocelyn with Ship a Car, she helped me with booking a driver to ship a car to my son from Georgia to Utah. I was sceptical at first from talking to other compananies and they were giving me different answers about a quote. Jocelyn was straight up with me, she gave me her word that she would not stop until she got me a driver and stay in contact with me the entire process which she did. even after my son received the car she checked with me to make sure everything was good. Thank you for your help.
Thank You Ship A Car
I was having a car shipped from Houston to Tennessee and I had many concerns about this adventure. However, after speaking with Lawrence and then him walking me through every step. I had the best experience possible. He did everything that he said that he would and went over and beyond my expectations. The driver Leon was just as good and provided peace of mind all the way. I schedule my car to be picked up on a Monday.. when I actually made the final call to Lawrence.. he stated "how about if I try to get a driver to pick up on Saturday"? I said yes of course, short story Lawrence called back with a pick-up date on Saturday and delivery on Monday. Then Leon called and asked if a Sunday delivery would be okay?? Wow, I could not have asked for anything better than this experience. Yes, I would use this company again without a doubt.
Joyce B. Clarksville, TN
Bob M. was great. He worked so hard to help us with a tough transport in a short time period while sticking to our budget. I appreciate the time and effort he took to make sure we were able to transport our truck. He genuinely cared about us and wanted to make sure we had a good experience. Would highly recommend him for any transport needs!

More information about our trusted vehicle transport services

Ship A Car: Our clients' most frequent questions

  • How much does it cost to ship a car?

    The cost of shipping a car is determined by a number of distinctive factors, including the distance that has to be traveled, the type of vehicle that is being transported, whether you opt for open or enclosed transport, and any additional services that may be required (for example, in-op vehicle transport, door-to-door delivery, or the time of year of transport). The most important factor that contributes to your overall car shipping rate is the distance traveled between the point of pickup and the delivery location.

  • How do I get a quote for shipping my vehicle?

    Get in touch with our auto transport coordinators at (866) 821-4555 or make use of our user-friendly online car shipping calculator to obtain the most accurate estimate possible for transporting your vehicle. It is essential that you provide your transport coordinator over the phone or fill out the calculator form with as much information as possible in order to guarantee that you receive an accurate estimate for the shipment of your vehicle.

  • Is my vehicle fully insured during the car transport process?

    From the moment a carrier picks up your vehicle until the moment it is delivered, you may have peace of mind knowing that your vehicle is totally insured by the carrier's insurance. In order to ensure that every car shipping carrier satisfies all of the Department of Transportation (DOT) regulations for coverage, we conduct a thorough process of screening them. The amount of coverage that your vehicle will receive is contingent upon the value of the vehicle, the trailer that is being used, and the carrier's insurance provider.

    Your cargo insurance coverage might range anywhere from $100,000 to a maximum of $150,000 if you use an open auto transport carrier to ship your vehicle. On the other hand, if you choose to go with an enclosed auto transport carrier option, which is something that we strongly advise you to do, you will be able to take advantage of significantly larger coverage amounts, which may range anywhere from $250,000 to even 3 million. Feel free to ask us for confirmation that the carriers that we have in our network have what is required for terms of insurance protection at any stage throughout this process, if you feel that it is essential to do so. We'd be more than happy to provide it upon request.

  • Car Shipping Insurance - Do I need Gap Coverage?

    While your vehicle is being loaded onto a truck, during the entirety of the process of transporting your vehicle and while it is being unloaded from the truck at its delivery location, it will be completely protected by the insurance of the carrier. This is a guarantee that is offered by all reputable auto shipping companies, including Ship A Car, Inc. Regrettably, when it comes to insurance, the majority of vehicle transport brokers will not warn you that there are sometimes exceptions that apply. You may find yourself in a scenario where you are required to rely on your own personal vehicle insurance if the insurance carried by a carrier does not pay for the damages that have been caused to your vehicle or vehicles. Take into consideration only those car transport companies that provide supplementary insurance alternatives, such as gap protection through the Othex Protection plan program. There should be no auto shipment that does not include it, and every car shipper ought to reevaluate any company that does not provide an option to purchase gap protection for shipping vehicles.

  • How do I prepare my car for shipping?

    In order to guarantee a smooth and risk-free car shipping experience, it is essential to get your vehicle ready for the trip. Make sure that you give it a thorough cleaning on the inside and the outside before handing it over to the auto carrier. By doing so, you will be able to take detailed photographs of its current condition for future reference in the event that any damages occur while it is being transported.

    In addition to that, you need to check the fluid levels, tire pressure, and battery charge of the vehicle. If you find yourself in a situation where you need to, you can use a portable charger to jump-start the car or even inflate the tires. Before the vehicle is picked up, you are required to remove any items that are loose from inside of it. Last but not least, make sure that the shipper is only given one key to your vehicle because this will ensure that no unauthorized individuals are able to access your vehicle while it is being transported.

  • How long does auto transport take?

    In order to determine the precise amount of time required to ship a vehicle, it is necessary to take into account the distance traveled, the route taken, and any stops that are required along the way. In general, however, the time it takes to transport a car can range anywhere from a few days to a few weeks; however, this time frame can change depending on a variety of factors, including the amount of traffic and the specific weather conditions. By working with Ship A Car, Inc., you will be provided with an accurate timeline for when your vehicle is expected to be picked up and delivered, allowing you to make appropriate preparations. After all, it’s our mission to ensure your auto is transported safely and quickly.

  • Are there any documents that are required in order to ship your vehicle? (e.g., license, ownership papers…)

    Absolutely not! Therefore, there is no need to worry about presenting your driver's license, title, registration, or insurance if the locations where the vehicle will be picked up and dropped off are located within the contiguous United States.

  • Does the cost of car shipping change based on gas prices?

    It is true that the cost of shipping a car can be impacted by the current price of gas. Due to the fact that carriers rely on fuel to travel from one location to another, the price of gasoline is an important factor for shipping companies. The price of gasoline can have a significant impact on the total cost of transporting your vehicle, and this influence can vary depending on the route that is taken as well as other factors.

  • Can I schedule car shipping if I do not have an exact address?

    Even though you do not have an exact address, it is still possible to schedule the shipping of your vehicle. We are aware that the circumstances may shift, and it is not always possible to know the precise address until things are getting closer to the date that the vehicle will be picked up or delivered. When you are speaking with our transport coordinators about scheduling car shipping, all you need to do is let us know what general area you are located in. We will then work with you to determine the most convenient location for either the pick-up or delivery of your vehicle.

  • Can I ship an oversized vehicle?

    To answer your question, Ship A Car, Inc. is able to transport oversized vehicles. We take great pride in providing specialized services for the transportation of large and heavy equipment, such as automobiles, trucks, boats, recreational vehicles, trailers, and other types of vehicles. We are able to handle these kinds of shipments with ease because we not only have the necessary experience and resources, but we also have additional insurance coverage options available for pieces of equipment that require it. In order for us to provide you with an accurate estimate for the shipping of your oversized vehicle, all you need to do is provide us with accurate information regarding the type of vehicle and its weight.

  • Is an enclosed trailer better than an open trailer when shipping a car?

    That is highly dependent on the vehicle that you are shipping. When compared to open trailers, enclosed trailers provide a higher level of protection and security. Therefore, if your vehicle is brand new, particularly valuable, or delicate, it is conceivable that an enclosed trailer is the more appropriate option. With that being said, open trailers are typically less expensive and simpler to book, which may make them a more suitable option for individuals who are looking for a straightforward and cost-effective automobile shipping service.

  • Do you ship classic and exotic cars?

    Yes, without a doubt! Additionally, Ship A Car, Inc. features a specialized shipping service for classic and exotic automobiles. Since we are aware that these automobiles require additional care and attention when it comes to transportation, we make it a point to provide the highest level of service that is humanly possible. This guarantees that your vehicle is handled in a manner that is both safe and secure at all times.

  • When it comes to car transport pick-up and delivery, is it necessary for someone to be present?

    A person who is at least 18 years old is required to be present at both the pick-up and the delivery of the vehicle. Before you ship the vehicle, the auto carrier will carry out a thorough inspection to check for any existing damage and you will need to make sure that everything is documented on the bill of lading and finally all of the necessary paperwork has been signed by you and the auto carrier driver. Additionally, it is essential that someone be present at the time of delivery in order to conduct a thorough inspection of the vehicle upon its arrival and provide a signature on the bill of lading confirming its condition. In the event that there is any damage that occurred while the vehicle was in transit, this safeguards you. In addition, we have found that it is beneficial to have a contact person on either end of the delivery process. This allows us to quickly resolve any issues that may arise while your vehicle is in transit.

  • Can I put personal items in my vehicle?

    The answer is yes; you are permitted to load your personal belongings into your vehicle. Having said that, we do not advise leaving anything inside the vehicle that is of significant value or that cannot be replaced. During the time that your vehicle is being transported, neither your auto transport company nor the auto carrier company, are liable for any items that are stolen from the vehicle, and insurance policies typically do not cover such thefts either. Additionally, the total weight of these items must not exceed one hundred pounds, and they must be contained within the trunk of the vehicle or behind (or under) a window line.
    Take Note - When you are going to put some personal belongings in the vehicle for the transportation process, make sure that you inform your transport coordinator about it.

  • What does the First Available Pick-up Date mean?

    "First Available Pick-up Date" refers to the earliest day that we are able to schedule a pickup for your vehicle. When the vehicle will be ready for pick-up on your end, availability of our carriers and the routes they take are the factors that determine this. Our team of transport coordinators will work together with you to determine the most suitable date for pick-up, taking into account your requirements, while also making every effort to offer a cost-effective solution.

  • How do I pay for my auto shipping?

    We accept all major credit cards, including Visa, MasterCard and American Express. In the event that you would want to make a payment using a bank check, ZELLE or PayPal, please get in touch with us directly for further details. Once you have been assigned to a carrier, you will be required to pay a deposit, and the balance of the payment must be paid in full at the time of drop off using either cash or certified funds. Just let us know when you call to arrange your shipment, and we will be happy to supply you with additional alternatives if you require them.

  • Which online car shipping reviews are important to consider?

    According to consumers, the most important factors to take into consideration are reviews and accreditations for companies that ship cars. It is recommended that you conduct research with the Better Business Bureau (BBB), as well as consult feedback from previous customers. A car shipping business that is reputable and trustworthy has to at the very least be certified with the Better Business Bureau (BBB) and have a good rating (A or better). When it comes to vehicle transporters, the Better Business Bureau (BBB) is an excellent independent business dependability review board. Most other auto transport review sites receive some compensation for their services from companies. Because of this, there are instances in which evaluated businesses pay for their rankings like on, and so many other ranking sites in the car shipping industry. When you transport a vehicle, you should do it with a car shipping business that you can rely.

  • Do car shipping costs vary from state to state?

    Vehicles that are being shipped to the states of California (CA), Florida (FL), New York (NY), and Texas (TX) are the most frequently traveled routes. There are also a number of other states that are popular, including Georgia (GA), Virginia (VA), Washington (WA), Massachusetts (MA), Ohio (OH), South Carolina (SC), North Carolina (NC), and Arizona (AZ). The remaining states have a lower demand, and as a result, there are fewer auto carriers that service those routes. To receive an estimate of how much it will cost to ship your vehicle, you can use our Auto Transport Calculator now or call (866) 821-4555 right now to speak with an auto transport coordinator to receive a quote over the phone.

  • Are you a broker or a carrier for auto transport?

    It is a calculated risk to ship a car without the assistance of a auto transport broker. For the purpose of preventing clients from being taken advantage of by dubious car shipping carriers, the industry of auto transport is controlled through the services of brokers. The responsibility of assisting and educating customers in order to guarantee that their carriers are licensed with the Department of Transportation and insured has been delegated to auto transport brokers. When consumers do not have access to a broker, they face the danger of hiring a carrier that is not only unreliable but also uninsured and unlawful. This scenario frequently results in the consumer being left with a damaged vehicle and no way to seek compensation.  Ship A Car, Inc. is a licensed and insured auto transport broker.
