I was searching for an Auto Transport company to ship my son's car from Lake Forest, IL to San Diego, CA. He is a Marine and stationed there. From start to finish Ship A Car worked with me to quote a very competitive price. They were very patient as I changed the drop off date a few times because it is very difficult to predict my son's schedule. He was beginning his new MOS with the Marines and he had not received his orders for his shift. I changed the drop off again, from Thursday to Friday when he mentioned that Thursdays he had specific duties and would not be able to leave the base to get his car. It was complicated because for obvious reasons, the delivery truck can't simply drive onto the US Military base. So, my son asked if they could drop the car off at a nearby Target close to the base and provided the address and a date and time that he would be allowed to leave the base. Ship A Car worked with me through all of these logistics. They picked up the car when they agreed and dropped it off as agreed, in perfect condition. My Son, thought this was a better deal than buying a new car at this point. My understanding is that the Marines on the base need some form of transportation. And although my son needed a car, he didn't feel he needed to purchase a brand new car at this time. I can't say enough about the wonderful and patient customer service for Ship A Car. Sam L., the main customer service agent with whom I spoke most frequently, was so awesome! He even called me one evening - after I sent an email changing the drop off logistics - yet again - from his cell phone. He was home having dinner and stopped to deal with my issues! The drivers, Jesus and Saul were extremely professional and courteous as well! I give this company an A+!!!! My son called me and asked me for the contact details of Ship A Car because one of his Marine mates said he would like to do the same thingship his car from his home base; also in IL to California. Thank you again Sam and Ship A Car for all you did for my son, my marine, and our military men and women!

I worked with Bob to ship two cars from Wisconsin to South Carolina. I had never shipped vehicles anywhere, so I was nervous throughout the process, and worried that my cars wouldn't be picked up on time. Bob handled my nerves like a pro, was always reassuring and answering my calls quickly. Ultimately, my cars were picked up on time, arrived only two days later (in great shape), and everything went well! If I have to do this again, Bob will be the first and only call I make.

Contacted Ship-A-Car in early May 2018 and spoke with Steve G. He answered almost all of my questions immediately about shipping my new BMW to east coast. Those he couldn't answer he got back to me in less than a day with all the information I needed. A few weeks later my car was at the port on Maui and in less than one month it was safely sitting in my garage in North Carolina and in the exact same, excellent condition. I will ship other cars in the future and I will use Ship-A-Car and Steve.

Work with Cody. Chose this company due to good reviews. Transported my vehicle cross country for work. Cost was comparable to other quotes I saw online. Very professional and organized on the phone, detailed emails to document everything appropriately as well. Followed up as he said he would. Actual transport people also very professional, ended up delivering the car a day early which was a plus. Smooth and painless process.

Bob Moran really helped me out and made sure everything went smoothly. He added a very nice personal touch and called up to check in if I had any questions or concerns about where my car was or how much I could put in my car. There prices are great compared to other companies and the service is outstanding.

Very professional from start to finish. The booking agent (Len) was always available and reached out to me at every step of the process. The driver assigned to me (Jerry) was also an excellent communicator, took great care with my car and delivered it exactly as promised. I would definitely use this company again!

My son needed his truck transported from the West coast to North Carolina. Identifying a reliable auto transportation company is nerve wrecking especially when you had a prior bad experience. Pepper Long's efficiency put me entirely at ease. She thoroughly walked you through the whole process and addressed all my concerns and questions. She even gave us her cell phone number so that we can reach her after office hours. My son received his truck in a week as stated. Thank you Pepper for your sense of humor and professionalism.

The only thing better than ship a car is Bob, who works at ship a car. Bob is a great listener who will help you get your vehicle where it needs to get to. Bob worked with us to get our rav4 moved from Florida to New York. He listened to our needs and wants and crafted a time and price that coordinated perfectly with our plans. Unlike many transporters, Bob gave us a quote which was believable, accurate, and was the price we ended up paying. He doesn't bait you with a low price which can't be fulfilled. I have already recommended ship a car to friends and will continue. Thanks Bob!!!

Kristina at Ship A Car, Inc. is the person to reach out to, if you want to ship a car. She provided me information about shipping a vehicle, which I had no knowledge of. She helped me get the best price possible, while finding a very good driver. She truly cared about my experience.
Very Helpful!

After working to schedule my Prius shipment over a month in advance, the company I was working with still had not confirmed shipment 3 days before my move. Fortunately, I found Ship a Car Inc and got in contact with Bob M to see if they could offer an alternative. Bob got back to me within an hour and my car was picked up the same day! Bob's exceptional customer service, follow up and great care far surpassed any expectations I had in going through the car transport process. If you're looking for a first rate car transport company, look no further than Ship a Car Inc! In addition, the company offers discounts for active duty military! One of the best customer service experiences I've ever had!

Being a small online dealer I ship a couple of cars a month. So over the years, I've ran into my fair share of auto transport headaches! I am happy to say that this was my first time giving Ship A Car a try and they delivered the car for the price they originally quoted me and it came safely to my customer in the same condition that I sent it in. The hold time was a bit much... but I understand that they are working on it! Overall great experience and I will start using them all the time. They even sent me at $25 AMEX gift card when I referred my sister to them!

You guys are unbelievable! You made this so easy...... This was our first time transporting a car and after vetting-out all the unscrupulous brokers we found Ship A Car. You provided a covered transport in two days... My mechanic says that is unheard of... In all the years he has transported vehicles the shortest time for pick-up was 1 week... The assigned transport driver kept us informed of the progress and delivered the vehicle from Santa Rosa CA to Indio CA in 1 day!

Hello, I worked with Steve Goodman getting my car shipped from Pennsylvania to South Dakota. I was very leery on selecting a company and had been in touch with other shippers. My finale price was about $200 higher than original quote, but South Dakota isn't a very popular route. I had Car available on November 2 , 2020 and truck picked it the same day ! Although first truck had mechanical issues, Steve has another within 30 minutes scheduled. Car was delivered with no issues , on time. I would suggest to others to be available at anytime day of the transport because the driver can show really at anytime. Its funny the other shipping company called me and said the finally found a driver to transport my car , but it was already delivered . Steve really made it happen quick !

I needed to vehicles shipped from 2 different states. I had booked with Roadrunner who was unable to provide transport when the deadlines arrived. Dana helped me get the first vehicle from Alabama to South Carolina and Bob really pushes the 2nd vehicles transport as I was on a timeline. With a promise of day after delivery I was impressed to be told that the vehicle a 2015 Porsche Cayman GTS had been delivered the next day!! I found Ship A Car online by typing the Top 10 auto transport companies... They were ranked #1... Nuff Said!!

I was referred to Ship A Car from the moving company because I decided I didn't want to pull my Escort myself behind my truck. I made the right choice because the cost was more than reasonable and I didn't have to deal with the aggravation. The transport coordinator, Danny, was a great rep for the company. He helped me work around my schedule and responded to changes in my plans easily. The delivery guys, Sander and Val, kept me up-to-date on their timing and location throughout the transport. A very professional team. I will happily recommend to my friends and family and I would highly recommend to anyone else. Seriously, they know what customer service means.

Ship a Car was fantastic, and Willie Dublin provided extraordinary customer service.  I have had numerous items shipped across the county in the past. However, this transaction with Willie Dublin and Ship-a-Car has clearly been the most trouble free and professional. I would use them again, and completely recommend them to other users.

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!!!!!

Peter Minko provided excellent service, I had talked to peter months before regarding another move that I no longer needed, I had misplaced Ship a Car's info and I was trying to get my sister car shipped from California to North Carolina, everybody's quotes where all over the place and all the other companies stated that nobody was moving that direction or to that state. I had finally accepted a offer from another company that ended up giving me the run around and after awhile would not return my messages. Then out of the blue Peter Minko called with Ship a Car and I accepted his offer, Basically everything came to a HAPPY ENDING and I would use Ship a Car again and nobody else for future car shipping needs.

Thank you, Gary... You were terrific from the moment that I called you until the delivery of my car, which arrived before it was scheduled. When Shipped to LA last year the car was three to four weeks late, assume because they had different drivers. You organization only uses one driver and that is the difference...driver kept in touch with me that made delivery so easy. Would recommend you and your organization to anyone.

I would definitely use them again, and would recommend to anyone who needs a vehicle transported!

Willie Dublin assisted me on a short notice request to have my two vehicles, a Honda Odyssey and a Hyundai Elantra shipped from Santee, CA to Round Rock, Tx. I initially had set-up a request with another company a month prior , told them my situation and the day I needed it due to my wife's and my job that would require transportation. They told me they can deliver on the requested date. The day prior of the initial pick-up, I received an email that changed the pick-up to 3 days later and a possible whole week before the car would make it. They told me that I never specified the need and that they told me that they said the pick-up could be 3 days prior. They had a whole month to find a transport company to fit that transport request. I cancelled with them, called Willie D. at ship a car inc and he had me set-up with a pick-up day the same day. He was fast, efficient and had great communication the whole way. I would recommend Ship a car inc and Willie D. if you can request him for anyone moving out of state. I also would like to thank Carlos at Carlos Transport who Willie D. found as he was very professional, on time and delivered on the day needed. Very grateful to both of them. Relieved a lot of stress on our out of state move.

We talked with Steve he was very professional. We had a bad experience with trying to find a company to ship our car. This was the second company we found after the first one kept delaying our pick up on of the car and changing the price everytime we talked to them. They gave one flat price, no hidden fees, and no extra costs. Shipped from California to Texas. Great experience if we ever have to move long distance again we will use this company to ship one of our cars again.

I called Ship A Car and spoke with Les Grundleger. He was very helpful, very professional and very engaging. Les kept me informed at every step in the process and was always available when I called with questions. I had a very pleasant experience with Ship a Car itself. However, the company that my vehicle was dispatched to did not fare as well. The time schedule slipped on both the pickup and the delivery. In both cases they were hours behind the window promised and wound up picking up and delivering a day later than scheduled. I had to drive 5 miles to pick up my car because the driver said he couldn't get any closer because his rig was big. That didn't set well with me because the truck that delivered my household goods was a 73 foot tractor/trailor that dwarfed the transport and he backed it right down my driveway. Les actually followed up after the car was delivered and I told him of the issues I had with the trucking company. He promised to take it to management to recommend that they not be considered for hire if they were going to do that kind of thing. I would go with ship a car for their service, but stay away from Abraham Express if they get the dispatch.

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 Forbes.com, ConsumerAffairs.com 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.
