Do I need to pay a deposit or a fee upfront?

Absolutely not.

In an effort to ensure a quality experience, our company will never request that you give us a deposit or pay a fee upfront, until a carrier for your vehicle is secured.

How far in advance should I set up my shipping order?

Domestic Shipping

If you are planning to ship your vehicle within the 50-states, it is best to give our company two (2) to five (5) days notice to schedule a pickup. It can take less than 24-hours to complete an order, but we like to err on the side of caution.

International Shipping

If you are planning to ship your vehicle internationally, we would recommend giving our company one (1) to two (2) weeks. Again, we work quickly, so it could take less time, but we want to provide you with enough information to ensure a delivery that fits within your schedule.

Are the dates I received on my order guaranteed?

Unfortunately, due to traffic, weather conditions, and a number of other factors, the dates are not guaranteed. All dates provided are estimates and projections of when you can anticipate your vehicle to be both picked-up and dropped-off.

With that being said, once a carrier is secured, we will put you in direct contact with them, and they will typically call you before your pickup and delivery date.

How long will it take for a carrier to deliver my vehicle?

The vehicle delivery date depends on the distance. The average transit time for both pick-up and delivery, on a vehicle travelling coast-to-coast, will be between one (1) or two (2) weeks.

As a general rule of thumb, it takes a carrier one day to travel anywhere between 100 to 500 miles.

Will my vehicle be insured while it is being delivered?


Our service includes carrier insurance verification. You do not have to pay an additional cost for this coverage. Our company provides this service to you, complimentary, as part of our commitment to ensure a damage free delivery.

What if my vehicle is damaged during transit?

Damage that occurs during transit is rare, but unfortunately, it does happen. If your vehicle is delivered to you damaged, it is important that you note the damage on your final bill of lading report when you receive your vehicle. The bill of lading report is a document that releases the carrier and driver of any liability once it is signed at delivery.

The driver will notate any pre-existing damages at pickup on your bill of lading report. Any damage that occurs in transit, must be added to this report, by you or your agent, at delivery. Failure to notate any further damages at delivery can seriously hinder your damage claim. Therefore, when you take delivery of your vehicle, look over your vehicle thoroughly and make sure you document any additional damages.

What kind of carriers are available?

Our network of carriers can ship any type of vehicle, in any way that you prefer. For domestic shipments, we can provide both closed and open carriers. For international shipments, we can ship your car by land, air, or sea.

What are the differences between open and enclosed carriers?

An open carrier is a carrier that will transport your vehicle without it being enclosed in a trailer with walls. A majority of our vehicle shipments are done via open carrier, since it is both safe and efficient. Most dealerships receive their new cars via open carrier transport (see image below).

An enclosed carrier is a form of transport where you car is completely protected from the elements. This form of transportation is more expensive, and we only recommend an enclosed carrier if your vehicle is: unique, $100,000 or more, or if it’s a collectors item (see image below).

Can I pack items into my car before it is shipped?

Unfortunately, no.

Other companies may tell you otherwise (e.g. some companies will say that you can put up to 100 pounds of personal items in the trunk), but it is simply not true. Our company and our network of carriers are licensed to transport vehicles and not household goods or personal items. You can verify this information by viewing our license from the Department of Transportation using the link below. We encourage you to do the same with any other company to ensure you are receiving quotes from a company that is properly licensed.


For our license information, please click the link above and enter our US Dot Number 3117631.

CAUTION: You can ask the carrier if they will permit personal items, but if they are caught and fined, they will likely pass that fine on to you. Please be advised, the U.S. Transportation Laws state that a carrier can be fined $10,000 for hauling household items in the vehicle.

Can you deliver my vehicle to my home or office?


Our team members and online forms, will ask for a specific pickup and delivery address. If the carrier can safely access roads to your address, they will deliver your vehicle to your door. If the address cannot be accessed safely, the driver will make arrangements with you to meet at a nearby location where the vehicle can be delivered safely.

Can you transport motorcycles and boats?


We can find carriers that will ship motorcycles and boats.
