Everything You Need to Know About the State of Missouri (MO)
Nicknamed the Show Me State, Missouri was instituted into the union in 1821 as part of the Missouri Compromise. The state is an important hub of transportation and commerce in early America through the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers. The Gateway Arch in St. Louis is a monument to Missouri’s role as the “Gateway to the West.” St. Louis, Missouri, is abode to the Anheuser-Busch, the maker of Budweiser beer, and proud to hold the largest beer-producing plant in the country.
Missouri has bounding lines with eight states, most with Tennessee. Iowa stands to the north, Illinois, Kentucky and Tennessee (en route to the Mississippi River) to the east, Arkansas to the south and Oklahoma, Kansas and Nebraska to the west. The state capital is Jefferson City. And the state motto is Salus Populi Suprema Lex Esto (“The welfare of the people shall be the supreme law”).
Missouri was instituted into the Union in 1821 as a part of the Missouri Compromise. It was nicknamed the “Show Me State," believed to be coined from a speech by Willard Duncan Vandiver, a member of the United States House Committee on Naval Affairs.

The first non-stop single transatlantic flight in history was taken in 1927. It lasted thirty-three and half hours, from May 20th to 21st. Charles Lindbergh took the flight from Long Island to Paris. It was named The Spirit of St. Louis in recognition of the business people who financed its construction in St. Louis, Missouri. Charles Lindbergh’s single-engine plane had a 46-foot wingspan and weighed 2,150 pounds when empty.
The first public kindergarten, Des Peres School, was founded in 1873 in St. Louis.
The Gateway Arch in St. Louis, Missouri, is the country's tallest manufactured monument, standing at 630 feet. The structure was completed in 1965 and used to honour the city’s importance in settling the west following President Thomas Jefferson’s Louisiana Purchase in 1803.
During the Civil War, Missouri citizens were divided in their loyalties, providing both Union and Confederate forces with troops.
Auto Transport in Missouri
The auto transport sector in Missouri is booming. Several car shipping companies exist, striving to make a name for themselves. In a bid to do that, some of them employ fraudulent practices, while others do not provide you with sufficient information to guide you properly in your car shipping process.
Here is a guide to point you in the right direction in shipping your car seamlessly, without hassles.
Things to Note in Choosing an Auto Transport Company
It would help to consider the following when searching for a suitable car shipping company.
It is crucial properly vet the auto transport companies you are considering. You may make verbal inquiries and conduct some research online and discover what people have to say about the company. This helps identify companies that already have a negative or a less than par record.
In choosing an auto transport company, the place of transparency cannot be neglected. Some companies make use of vagueness to lead unsuspecting customers astray. Hence, it is vital that every form of ambiguity is absent from the company and what they tell you. When unclear, ask questions and ensure that all terms, conditions, and offers are clearly stated both verbally and in writing.
Licenses and Insurance
Auto transport companies are required to have specific licenses to operate in Missouri. Engaging the services of a car shipping company that does not have these licenses is a dangerous situation as it puts you and your vehicles at significant risk.
Auto Transport Companies and Transport Pricing
Car shipping companies differ in pricing; however, they are guided by the same factors. These factors include:
Type of Car
The type of car being shipped and its specifications influence the shipping cost. Cars that take up more space and weigh a lot are usually more expensive. Conversely, smaller and less weighty cars cost less to ship.
Suitability of Weather
Not all types of weather are palatable for car shipping. Rain and snow are challenging to drive in, hence transporting vehicles may take more time in this weather and may possibly be more expensive. You may ship your car ahead of time to avoid the increased price due to the weather change.
The accessibility of your location significantly impacts the cost of your shipping. Easily accessible areas do not cost as much as remote areas. If you are located in a remote setting, you can change your pick-up and delivery points to more accessible locations to reduce your car shipping costs.
Distance from Pickup to Drop Off
As could be expected, the longer the distance covered to ship your vehicle, the higher the costs. If you will be shipping your car over long distances and would like to reduce costs, you should factor in the other price determinants.
How to Prepare for Car Shipping
Certain documents will be required of you by the auto transport company before they ship your car. You should confirm that you have all those documents for the car shipping process. If you discover any of them is unavailable, make arrangements for a replacement ahead of time.
Clean the Vehicle and Take Photographs
It would be best to clean your vehicle, especially on the exterior. This enables you to quickly identify anything different about your car upon delivery. It is also best to take photographs of the car as it provides a good point of reference and comparison in the event of damage. Car shipping companies are liable for damages to any car in their care. These damages, however, do not include mechanical faults.
You should remove your personal and valuable items from the vehicle before shipping. Although auto transport companies are held responsible for damages to your car in their care, they are not responsible for any missing items. Hence, confirm that nothing important to you is left in the vehicle. Decluttering also helps shed off some excess weight in the car, reducing the overall shipping costs.
Remove Excess Gas
You only need enough gas in your car to cater for your pick-up and delivery. Any extra fuel only adds to the weight of your vehicle, incurring more costs for you. Hence, it is best to only fill your tank to one-quarter capacity.

Missouri hosts the second busiest rail center in the United States. Kansas City is the second largest freight rail center in the U.S. but is the first in the amount of tonnage handled. Like Kansas City, St. Louis is a principal destination for locomotive freight. Springfield remains a functional hub for BNSF Railway.
Amtrak passenger trains serve the following cities:
A proposed high-speed rail course in Missouri as a component of the Chicago Hub Network has received $31 million in funding.
The only urban subway system operating in Missouri is MetroLink. It connects the city of St. Louis with suburbs in Illinois and St. Louis County. It is one of the most extensive rail systems by track mileage in the United States. The K.C. Streetcar in Kansas began in May 2016.
The Gateway Multimodal Transportation Center in St. Louis is the state’s largest active multi-use transportation center. It is in downtown St. Louis, close to the historic Union Station complex. It serves as a hub center/station for MetroLink, the MetroBus regional bus system, Greyhound, Amtrak, and taxi services.

I-270: It is the Junction between I-55 and I-70.
I-470: This interstate joins Independence and southeast Kansas City in Missouri, running through Lee’s Summit.

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.
Justin in customer service was awesome. Very quick turn around time with giving me a quote and assisting me. Always on top of thing with questions I had. Also the emails sent on how to prepare the car for shipment, etc. were most helpful.
Ron Vanden Hoogen
Alfredo, Thanks, everything went well, both carriers were great. Picked up and delivered on time. Will gladly recommend your services.
Paul B. Hanover Park, IL
This was the first time I had ever shipped a car. Meredith A. was my agent and she did a great job of handling my request. My car was shipped from Florida to California and she walked me thru every step of the way. I would most certainly use Ship A Car and Meredith again
Janet was wonderful to work with. She got my F-Type from IL to Texas in perfect condition. Very easy to communicate with and she was great about following up on everything. I will definitely use again next time.
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.
My car arrived within 4 days of pick-up. I was surprised because of bad weather that was happening bringing rain and ice. The driver was an interesting fellow who drives a 2 car carrier. We were able to talk to him for a few minutes and learned that his home is in New Mexico. He took great care unloading mine and another gentlemen's vehicle both going to the base. For future reference on delivering or picking up any vehicle from Minot. There is a church about one mile north of the main gate. It's perfect for loading and unloading vehicles. My Hyundai arrived in the same condition that I left it, dirty. But none the worse for wear.
I was disappointed though, that it took 11 days to be picked up and the fee was re-nogotiated. My suggestion for a growing company is to find more carriers that will except credit card payments.
Thank you for working so hard to be a part of the BBB and having a good website it was what persuaded me to choose you over other carriers. My family has asked for your number and I will be happy to give it. Ship a car Inc was informative, allowed the use of a credit card, hired a good driver, my vehicle arrived safe and within a week of pick-up, you are given the carrier's number to communicate drop off day and time, once the day of pick-up was finally arranged the pick up happened in a timely manner.
Have a great day!
Julie S. Minot, ND
The transport company I chose didn't show up and it was pretty bad. I switched to Ship A Car and I liked their communication. People let me know what's going on and I'm good. When I called to ask about anything, a person was there and responded. He called me to let me know that he had someone to pick up the car. From then on, it was good until delivery. After delivery, I got a follow-up call so it went well.
The transport was from South Carolina to Utah, which was about 2,200 miles. When the car was picked up, it took a couple of days. There were two drivers and they just continually drove. I couldn't believe it. The final rate was what was decided upon. The only thing was the payment was a cash requirement. I had just moved here to Utah and I just opened an account. The money was held because it came from another state so I didn't have cash. That posed a problem on delivery because checks or credit cards weren't accepted. If a credit card were accepted, that would have helped tremendously. Other than that, I would recommend Ship A Car.
Virginia of Draper, UT
From the first call to final delivery, it was a first class experience. Yvonne on the phone handling my request to the driver who showed great care with my car. Chicago Burbs to Seattle.....a job very well done. Everything as promised.
I had the pleasure of working with Meredith A from the beginning of shipping my car to the end of the transaction. Meredith was very professional and caring throughout the process. She answered all of my questions, and I had a lot of questions, and eased my fears of shipping my car. Whenever I called if she was on another phone call she always called me back in a timely fashion. I throughly enjoyed her work ethic and would not hesitate using her service again if the need would arise.
About a month ago, I contacted your company thru one of your agents, Fernanda Lopez, to make arrangements to pick-up and transport a limousine from New York to my home; this was my first experience with shipping a vehicle and Ms. Lopez helped make it a pleasant one; I do not take service that "exceeds expectations" for granted and therefore felt compelled to write this note. I am a VET and purchased the limo to provide "free" transportation to my fellow Vets, as well as the elderly in my small community; Ms. Lopez helped our dream to become a reality and on behalf of the VIP's ( at least they are to me), please pass on my accolades, and recognition of Fernanda's professionalism not only to her but to her management team as well; it is because of her personal attention and service that I am rating your company a five star provider and awarding Ms. Lopez a "six star" rating. Thank you very much Ms. Lopez, may God bless you and our nation.
James W. Princess Anne, MD
First time I used Ship a Car, they are very professional. Danny was my transport coordinator, and he was very friendly and courteous . He answered all my questions very professional. We were notified when the driver would pick up the vehicle in California and also when they arrived with it in Florida. We are very satisfied with their service. Thank you very much and we will be using this company in the future. This company is very highly recommended ,I personally want to thank Danny for this great experience.
Ship A Car exceeded all expectations! The arrangements were very accurate and schedule was spot on. The driver kept us continuously informed and our car arrived early in great condition. Highly recommended.
My experience with Ship A Car was pretty straightforward, and everybody did what they said they were going to do. The transport of my pickup truck went very well.
Anthony of Philadelphia, PA
Bob M. was excellent to deal with. This is the 2nd time I used Ship-A-Car. very good price and on time delivery. Thanks again Bob for the great service!
We have a street legal custom golf cart to the tune of a $10,000 investment with all of the fancy bells and whistles. My son and his family relocated to Boca Raton and they wanted to use it over there. A friend recommended that we contact Ship A Car and said that they would get it safely delivered from Sarasota to the east coast. Danny K. handled our request and made it happen for us in just one day. We were extremely pleased with his engaging attitude and the high degree of professional customer service that he provided us with. We will certainly recommend Ship A Car for your golf cart transport but we are sure that we will use there services when it comes time to ship our car anywhere in the US. Thank you Danny and staff for a job well done!!!
Fantastic- pleasant guys. This can be a stressful process. Shipping a beloved car across the world and the team here do an amazing job of keeping things on the straight and narrow. Keep up the good work!
Bob Moran at Ship A Car, Inc. provided impeccable services. His willingness to follow up and share his level of expertise was reassuring during a chaotic time of transition. Bob offered insightful information and worked to ensure our needs were met, even if not through Ship A Car, Inc. his reputation and committee to integrity, efficiency, and professionalism far exceeded my expectations and I am grateful to have had the opportunity to partner with him to get my cars transported timely. Thank you.
You hear stories about transport companies. I was quite negative when I began calling transport companies and then I found this one. And wow. I honestly feel I got lucky. This company it top notch. No gimmicks, no surprises, super good communication and information. Felt like I was always dealing with a real person that understood and cared and not some robot. Everything I was told would happen, happened and truck was delivered in great shape when it was supposed to. WIll use again for sure!
Bob at Ship A Car did a great job at arranging the shipping of my vehicle. He is very professional, honest, and kept me and my brother update on all details and process of car shipment. If I ever needed to ship a car again I would definitely want to work with Bob Moran at Ship a Car. I will definitely recommend Bob Moran from Ship a Car to all my friends and relatives.
Rob A. Mission, , TX
I needed to ship my SUV from Hanover, NH to Seattle. Fernanda Lopez was my point of contact for my shipping needs. She was prompt, patient and very helpful in accommodating my shipping dates and ensured we stayed in touch throughout the process. The quote I got was reasonable and I would venture to say cheaper than the other quotes I received, without any compromise. I received my car within 5 days and I couldn't be a more satisfied customer. High recommend ShipACar and especially Fernanda for their great service, price, and support.
Bob and his team did a GREAT job getting my vehicle to me during a cross country move. They have Stellar communication and I was updated every step of the way. My vehicle arrived in perfect condition HIGHLY recommend Ship A Car!!! Thank you Bob!!
We've never had to transport a vehicle before. We had an excellent experience with Ship a Car. Willie D. handled our questions professionally. He explained the process, and calmed my nerves. We appreciate everything Willie did for us and will use them again if needed. We highly recommend them.
Our son's Mustang delivery was just completed by Ship A Car Inc. Mike helped us through the whole process in getting the delivery scheduled. Ed was the driver and was so respectful and nice! Our son had just moved to Texas and needed his car delivered. Originally we had scheduled with another company and that was a disaster. Then we contacted Ship A Car Inc, spoke with Mike and it all worked out beautifully.
Pat B. Gorham, ME
My recent relocation from Seattle to Pittsburgh was less stressful because of the service that Ship A Car provided—Yvonne B. 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.
After using other companies Bob Moran at shipacar was the best. He handled the entire process in a professional manner. This is the only company I will ever use
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.
My company recently lost our transportation driver and we was in need of a company to give us quick turnaround and least expensive rates. Willie D. was awesome and worked with me directly all hours of the day and even while he was on vacation to meet our company needs. I am very pleased with the experience and customer service. I look forward to a long relationship with Willie at Ship A Car.
Miguel got the job done. I had to pass on the 1st shipper he found because no one would be at the other end. Found me a 2nd carrier who got the car from Maryland to NM in 3 1/2 days. This is 2nd time I have used ship-a-car. They tell you upfront how long it might take. Not the case with some other shipping agents.
Martin F. Silver Spring, MD
Just received our car Dallas to ny with a damaged tire. Some advice. Get the name of the company that is actually transporting your car before you sign a contract and check credentials. We didn’t. The company had an F rating on BBB. Don’t count on door to door. Late on pick up. Late on delivery. Sat in Philadelphia for 2 days b cause the driver took the keys home Don’t count on communication on weekends. Auto ship passes the buck to the transport company as soon as you sign. You will only get info from the dispatcher and it was inaccurate for us On to the claim. Never again
Had a great experience. Fernanda was very helpful and easy to communicate with. They picked up my 68 Camaro the very next day. And when it arrived it was just as promised. Thank you and I would most definitely recommend them to anyone needing a vehicle moved.
Len walked me through the process and answered the million questions I had like a consumate professional.
I felt very comfortable making a decision to let them haul my cars. I felt very informed by all parties involved. I felt like my cars were in safe hands. The delivery was early and the pickup was on time. Would recommend to anyone looking for a good experience.
Lisa in CS helped us ship our daughters car to and from KS this year. She is reliable, friendly and follows up on everything. She is terrific!!!
Jenny M. Clovis, CA
I'm a snowbird and I'm 84 years old. I used to drive back and forth but at my age, that's not safe. I don't see another alternative to Ship A Car. I work with Steve and he has been incredible. He knows me and my situation and he is just so supportive. The trip last fall was amazing. During this time when there's so much unrest, they're doing everything they can to make the trip as enjoyable as possible.
Jackie of Manitou Springs, CO
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.
Bob Moran. Is AMAZING ! I shipped my car from Las Vegas to Pennsylvania. Bob has kindness , compassion, respect ,empathy, and professionalism for the stress and planning that comes with moving. His customer service deserves him to be an owner of this company. And he should get a raise of 50% in my opinion. Because he communicated on a level that all customer service people should learn from this man. He returned calls and texts with in 24 hours and was honest and transparent if he could meet your deadline. And he did all that by being calm and giving a 100% effort in putting our needs/ the customer first. If your going with this company, then ask to have Bob as your person . Thank you Bob! Godbless!
If A customer WAS Calling Looking to Ship a car I would tell them To Ask For danny K. He was Awesome. Timing Was As Planned and We didn’t Have To Talk About Communication. they CALLED and Kept Us up to date every step of the way.
Rodney J. Morris, , IL
Excellent customer service
I wanted to thank Ship A Car for a job well done. It was a pleasure working with all individuals involved with transporting my motorcycle from point A to B. I would recommend there service to anyone.
I needed my son's car shipped from Bluffton, SC to his home in Bear, DE. My sister Louise gave me Kristina Virtue's phone, sins she is working with her to have her car shipped from Queens, NY to Las Vegas. The car was picked up and was delivered on Monday, 2/22/2021 after 3:00 pm. Kristina did a great job and was very pleasant to work with. I told my sister what a great job she did. I'll definitely recommend Kristina and Ship A Car if someone else need your service. Sincerely, Patricia Lindvall 843-705-6919
We had an urgent need to transport a family member's car from NC to WA and Janet helped find our transporter/driver within a day or two and the car was picked up on-time shortly after that and safely delivered sooner than expected with excellent service and care for a competitive price.
Mark T. Lake Ariel, PA
this service was the best. especially Meredith. Everything was done and completed as promised. Professional, Courteous and trustworthy. Received a follow up call from Meredith to make sure car arrived on time and if everything went well I give this company 5 stars. I give Meredith 10 stars for handling this shipment.
Simply the best. We use them to transport all of our customer's vehicles. We need to be able to trust the company transporting supercars for us, and no one comes close in quality and service as this company. Highly recommend them!
