How Much Does it Cost to Ship a Car?
The average cost to ship a car across country is about $1000 on an open carrier and around $1500 on an enclosed carrier.
The cost to transport a car is most likely one of the biggest questions you’ll have when deciding whether to ship your car or not. You might be surprised by the answer, but 9 out of 10 times it is cheaper and safer to ship your car via car hauler rather than to drive your vehicle yourself. Fuel, wear and tear on the car, flight costs and cross country transit time all come into effect if you decide to move your vehicle your self.
Let All Day Auto Transport make your car transport as worry free as possible and your satisfaction is our guarantee. Most of our clients that end up shipping their vehicle with us usually tell us we weren’t the cheapest quote they received. Most people would be surprised by this but our whole staff is expertly trained in explaining to each client the in’s and out’s of the transport industry and how we actually determine the quote we give them. Thus, our customers realizes that maybe paying the extra $100 that our quote might be compared to another could be the difference of getting a reliable car transporter to pick up their vehicle on the days they need. 50% of our business comes from rescuing people that tried to ship their car with another company and no hauler ever comes to pick up their vehicle, because the broker gave them an unrealistic quote to hook their business, rather than the actual cost to ship their car. All Day Auto Transport will always give you the lowest possible car transport quote that will actually get your vehicle moved, no headaches, no games, no excuses – just an honest and accurate rate to ship your vehicle!

Frequently Asked Questions When Shipping a Car

Transit time differs but vehicles are usually delivered between 5 to 7 days ( if it’s a shorter route like Florida to Georgia for example it would only be 1 or 2 days for delivery.) Keep in mind the drivers are picking up and delivering 9 vehicles at a time and can only travel 300 to 500 miles per day based on Department of transportation guidelines.
- Is the vehicle insured while on the carrier during transit? Yes, every carrier we use holds a minimum of $500,000 in cargo insurance. Make sure to notate any damage on the Bill of Lading on delivery, insurance companies will not cover any damage that is not noted.
