Everything You Need to Know About the State of New Jersey (NJ)
During the American Revolution, New Jersey served as a significant battleground. New Jersey, the most populous state in the union, is sandwiched between New York and Pennsylvania at the center of the busy Atlantic Corridor. New Jersey was named for the island of Jersey in the English Channel. With more than 50 oceanfront resort towns, including Asbury Park, Atlantic City, and Cape May, New Jersey has long been a well-loved vacation destination. Several notable musicians are from the state, including Frank Sinatra, Bruce Springsteen, and Jon Bon Jovi. Although it has a reputation as an industrial hub, New Jersey is a major producer of cranberries, blueberries, and tomatoes, earning the moniker “Garden State.”
The state of New York borders it on the north and east; the Atlantic Ocean on the east, southeast, and south; the Delaware River and Pennsylvania on the west; and Delaware Bay and the State of Delaware on the southwest. Trenton serves as the state capital of New Jersey, which attained statehood on December 18, 1787. Liberty and Prosperity, the state slogan, captures the effervescent face of the state.
Thomas Edison created hundreds of inventions in his Menlo Park laboratory during the final quarter of the 19th century. This included the phonograph, which recorded and replayed sound, and an electric-powered railway. However, he is best known for developing the incandescent light bulb with a bamboo filament and creating a mechanism for widely distributing electricity.
William Parker Foulke discovered the first nearly complete dinosaur skeleton in North America at Haddonfield, New Jersey, in 1858. In 1868, it was the first dinosaur skeleton in the world to be displayed in an exhibit.
The well-known soft candy in bite-sized form, salt-water taffy, was invented on the Atlantic City Boardwalk in the 1880s.
Opening to traffic between New Jersey and New York on November 13, 1927, the Holland Tunnel became the first mechanically ventilated underwater tunnel. The tunnel lies roughly 93 feet beneath the Hudson River at maximum depth.
The "Crossroads of the Revolution," New Jersey, was the site of more than 100 battles during the fight for American independence.
Car Shipping in and out of New Jersey
The need to relocate, go on a vacation, or study are a few reasons you may need your car shipped to or from New Jersey. However, the reason you need to ship your vehicle does not matter. What matters is that your car is shipped as safely and as smoothly as possible. For this to happen, we need to consider certain factors that will help make your shipping process more straightforward.
Finding the Best Car Shipping Company in New Jersey
Choosing the best car shipping company is vital in shipping your vehicle to or from New Jersey. This is because choosing the wrong company can have profound implications, including uncompensated damage to your car. To avoid this, you need to select your car shipping company carefully. The following are tips that will help with your selection.
If you are not choosing a company based on a personal reference, then it is crucial that you research the credibility of the company. Some companies are out to exploit unsuspecting customers. You should not fall victim to them. Instead, make inquiries, listen to what previous customers have to say about them, and base your judgment on this.
Having sufficient experience always makes any process easier. Car shipping is not an exception. Before deciding on a company, confirm that they have a reasonable level of experience with the car shipping process in New Jersey. It can be expected that novices in the business will experience certain mishaps due to a lack of experience.
Licenses and Registration
Certain licenses and registrations are required to run an auto transport company in New Jersey. Engaging a company without such licenses puts you and your car at risk.
Communication and Transparency
When you reach out to a company and request for a quote, you should pay close attention to their response. You should ensure that whatever quote you receive is straightforward and easy to understand. In addition, the quote should clearly show how much you are paying and what service the payment covers. This is to ensure there are no hidden costs in the quote.
Factors Influencing Car Shipping Costs
There is a reason car shipping companies request certain information before offering you a quote. This is because different factors affect the cost of shipping a car. Some of these factors are:
Method of Shipping
There are two primary shipping methods: the open method and the enclosed method. The open method involves shipping vehicles on an open car carrier. Cars shipped this will be exposed to harsh weather elements (like rain, snow, and dust) in additional to common road debris throughout the entire transport process. Nevertheless, this method is naturally cheaper.
The enclosed method ships vehicles using a covered or enclosed vehicle carrier. Even though this method is more expensive, it provides the advantage of protecting your car from all external factors such as inclement weather and debris.
The spring and summer seasons are, the busiest times in the car shipping business. This is because most people whom relocate or travel long distances move during these times. Hence, the demand for car shipping companies and their services are in must higher demand during peak seasons, and subsequently, it costs more to ship.This will also likely affect the delivery times.
Your car’s specification is also a determinant of its shipping costs. For example, large vehicles take up more space than smaller ones, and as a result, they cost more. Conversely, lightweight cars cost less than heavy ones.Other factors that affect the price are vehicles that are over dimensional, have body kit modifications, or are very low to the ground.
If your car is in perfect working condition and can move on its own, it will cost less than if it needs to be moved because it does not start.

Two smaller commercial airports, Atlantic City International Airport and rapidly growing Trenton-Mercer Airport, also operate in other parts of the state. Teterboro Airport in Bergen County, and Millville Municipal Airport in Cumberland County, are general aviation airports popular with private and corporate aircraft due to their proximity to New York City and the Jersey Shore, respectively.
The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, the Delaware River Port Authority, the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission, and the Delaware River and Bay Authority manage most of the major transportation routes in and out of New Jersey. Bridge tolls are retrieved from vehicles exiting the state. The only exception is the private Dingman’s Ferry Bridge over the Delaware River. It charges a toll in both directions.

This was my first time using Ship A Car. I was helped by Quinten Putnam, who was great! The whole thing went really smoothly, and he followed up with me multiple times, making sure everything worked out fine. The customer service was truly outstanding, and our cars were safely and quickly delivered to our new home.

I dealt with Justen over the phone. They got my motorcycle to me safely in an enclosed transport on time and significantly cheaper than anyone else. PS don't use uship.com for reviews, those reviews are all fake as hell.
That picture is just the way your experience is with Ship A Car. Awesome and sweet, great custormer service, Quinten ;) and fast delivery. Thank You!
Spoke with Lisa P numerous times about shipping a car to my son in San Jose, from Tucson. As I had not done this before, I had lots of questions. Lisa was very patient, answered all my questions to my satisfaction. Told her the car could be picked up the following day, and literally within 30 minutes, she called me back to say she had a truck lined up to pick up the car the VERY NEXT MORNING!! Amazing. Car was picked up on Thursday, and delivered to my son's house on Monday, late afternoon, exactly as promised. Car arrived in great shape. I was very impressed with how this all went, and would definitely use them again. Excellent.
Rob A. Tucson, AZ
Yvonne was wonderful. Had contacted numerous other shippers and was contacted by even more. Yvonne really made me feel confident that i wasn't going to be one of those horror stories I read about in reviews of other places. jeep arrived From Omaha, Nebraska to Beverly Hills, California no problem. Left Friday morning and got it on Sunday morning. Yvonne is fantastic to work with.
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!!
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.
Car arrived yesterday, all safe and sound! Another satisfied customer, thank you, Alfredo! Kate.
Kate D. San Francisco, CA
We have been working with Bob at Ship A Car for years, and we are always impressed with the personal attention to detail. Highly recommended!!
My experience was positive. The agent, Will, with Ship A Car, was very professional and my two cars were picked up and delivered in the condition I gave them to the driver. In fact, the driver delivered my cars one day earlier!
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!
My bike is here in one piece and no damage and it happened much faster than anyone else could get it here for me, so I’m very pleased. Thank you for everything.
Joyce B. Clarksville, TN
Just shipped my car and trust me they provide the best shipping service in town! Hassle-free, fast, and my is in safe hand! Thanks!
I worked with Justen to ship my car from Michigan to California, he is very kind and patient and the communication is great throughout the process. My situation is a little bit special, in early May, I made a deal with Justen that the release date will be July 10th, however, on June 19th, my schedule has changed and I need my car to be transported as soon as possible. After I told my concerns to Justen on June 19th morning, he replied a few hours later saying that he has arranged a driver and my car is ready to be picked up this afternoon!!! Great thanks to Justen and my car arrived at California on June 23th! I gave him difficult circumstances, but his professionalism made it a easy move.
Although Ship a Car Inc is more expensive than others, but if you think of their service, it is totally worth the price! And in Ship a Car Inc, if you are looking for a smooth and worry-free transportation process, Justen is your man!!!
Ship a Car was fantastic, and Willie D. provided extraordinary customer service. I have had numerous items shipped across the county in the past. However, this transaction with Willie D. 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.
I just had my car shipped from NY to AZ. It arrived ahead of time. Bob Moran was very professional, courteous, knowledgeable and went the extra mile to help me.
Linda K. Mechanicville, NY
Very smooth transaction, delivery was early and they were able to find a drive within a day. very easy to deal with, great communication, always picked up when I called. highly recommended.
Willie at ship a car never let me down while trying to find me a transport carrier after the initial one dropped the ball. I appreciate his persistence and following through and would highly recommend them anytime.
My interaction with Joseph from Ship A Car was a pleasant one. He did not push me to just go with him. I checked around and did find cheaper companies, but chose Joe for his openess and honesty with me. I would recommend Ship A Car to anyone I know who is in need of a transport company.
I wish to wholeheartedly endorse Theo @ Shipacarinc for the way I have been treated as a first time customer. He has shown me knowledge of his job, and is also very good at customer service and communication. He has responded in a timely manner with courtesy and professionalism. I highly recommend Theo and his company's services for anyone seeking to transport a vehicle. One only has to read the horror stories on the Internet with other companies to make one nervous of the process. He has made me comfortable and confident of the outcome.

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 !
Pepper long was wonderful. I got a great price, great customer service and my car was delivered 6 hours later. Great service for military, even got a discount.
Had a wonderful, smooth, successful transaction with these guys. They did everything as promised, including delivering the car across the country a day early! Couldn't have been easier.
I've had terrible experiences with transport companies until I used Ship a Car Inc. They were honest and upfront with cost and delivery time. Their follow up is impressive they are with you through the entire process and will get you the best price. I have used them several times and will continue to do so. I strongly recommend this company, you will not be disappointed.
Fidel O. San Diego, CA
Excellent communication from Ship-A-Car Direct (Stefan and others). They lined up ARK Transport, who made an uneventful trip from Colorado to Ohio. Car was delivered at 10:30 PM (No problem for me, but I was unable to take good receiving inspection photos. Driver was very careful unloading car. No damage during transit.
What an amazing experience we had with this company and especially with Willie D. who made all the arrangements for us. I was very concerned about sending the car this way and he was so kind and patient with me taking the time to reassure me and ease my fears and apprehension. If he had not done that I honestly think I would have not sent the car this way or I might have looked to other transport companies because of the anxiety I had. He truly was a blessing. Thank you Willie for your kindness and for enduring all my calls. You should give lessons on great customer service because you were the best!
We had a great experience! Willie was the best! Always kept in contact with me which helped cuz I was nervous about shipping our 2 cars. The price they gave me never changed and was very reasonable! The guy that came to pick up our cars was on time and professional. Cars were delivere unharmed and in a timely manner. I would recommend them to my family & friends!
Danny -- just wanted you to know that the P T Cruiser we bought from Performance Auto in Ft. Meyers arrived here in Billing safe and sound, via Admirals Black Transport. It's a beautiful car, and Admirals Black did a great job of getting it here. Thanks so much to you and Ship-A-Car for making the arrangements. It was a pleasure doing business with you!
Harold E. Billings, MT
Bob is great to work with!
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
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.
We Had Good Luck Using Ship A car inc. lisa knows her stuff. We've used her and the ship a car company almost a dozen a Times. Every Time Is Just As Satisfying As the Last. We will continue to use Ship A car Inc. Thank You, Lisa!

Marie D. Hallandale Beach, FL
Company was very professional and got our car to its destination in a very timely manner. Communication could be a little tighter but overall a good company to work with.
This company is outstanding..VERY honest and straightforward ...at FIRST glance they seem high in price ... but they are not ...they know the market. I dealt with 2 other companies. they quoted much less but could not deliver. Stars and stripes was one of them. could not move my VEHICLE for 12 days This company found me a driver in 1 day ..he delivered 1 day EARLY ..janet ..explained in detail how shipping a vehicle works ..she walked her talk and followed up....very pleased with entire process ..will definitely use again..
An absolute pleasure to work with such a professional company! I was shipping my vehicle from California to Hawaii and was working with Rita who made the process virtually seamless. Working on different time zones was initially challenging, however, Rita made it her mission to get my car to Hawaii with as little hassle as possible. 10/10 recommend. Thank you!
Great experience, even though I had to ship with another broker due to mechanical issues. Justen Varughese was professional, efficient, and honest. Good company, excellent employee. Great customer service and professionalism.
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 an 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. Craig in California.
Craig R. Riverside, CA
Will D. shipped our car from Cincinnati, OH to Alabama. He was very professional. His custom service was second to none, and the car arrived in Alabama in perfect condition. We will definitely use Ship A Car and request Will D. again. He made our move worry free. Thanks again.

Awesome Company and would recommend to others. Extremely professional Staff.
I did a relocation and needed transport from Indianapolis to Idaho. Setting up transport with Ship A Car took a few phone calls and it went smoothly. The driver was fantastic and the transport took seven days. Things went very well.
Vinnie of Declo, ID
Never called to let us know pick up time would be pushed back. Never called night before when they said they would to let us know the pickup time. We are waiting to hear from them, flying out tomorrow morning, and can’t get a single response from anyone. Horrible service.
It was a pleasurable and professional experience dealing with you. The car was picked up and arrived with no problems. I will definitely use you again if needed and definitely refer you to anyone I know in need of transport.
Wally N. Bristol, CT
As it was our first time shipping a car, we had lots of questions. I worked with Dana Briones who was very helpful. The car as promised arrived with no issues.
