What is Car Shipping or Car Transport?

Car Shipping, also referred to as Vehicle Shipping or Auto Transportation, is a service that transports a vehicle long-distance.

This service is used by businesses, individuals, and families that are re-locating cross-country or retirees who have a Snowbird lifestyle.

This transportation can happen in many ways, depending on your needs. 

For example, you can hire a professional driver to drive it to the destination. The vehicle could also be hauled behind a rental truck or shipped via a transportation carrier, which involves loading your car onto a trailer towed by a semi-truck.

When Is Car Shipping Necessary?

It’s not always possible or desirable to drive your car from one point to another. You may have small children who won’t tolerate the long trip, and you may have other logistics to handle. You might also just want to relax and not worry about managing a road trip.

Anytime you want or need to get your car from one location to another without the fuss, car shipping services are the perfect solution.

We offer the following car shipping services:

Costs of Car Shipping

There are a variety of factors to consider for car shipping services. If you plan to ship your car across the country with a carrier, you’ll most likely work with an auto transport broker. An auto broker is simply a middle man who has no relationship with the actual drivers who will handle your car. This broker will gather information about your move: how far and where? Insurance requirements? Timing? Type, size, and condition of the vehicle? 

The broker will then seek quotes from various carriers. These carriers also consider their routes and how adding a vehicle will impact their schedules. Carriers pick up and drop off your vehicle when it works for their schedules, not when it’s good for yours. Luckily, most brokers understand the market and provide reasonably accurate quotes. Unfortunately, the quote you get may not be the actual price you pay, depending on what the existing carriers charge. In some situations, you might get a broker who just wants your business and quotes so low it’s too good to be true. 

At Professional Drivers, we work directly with you for your needs. Because we’re not trying to wrangle multiple cars at once work with your schedule, we are much more convenient and safer than trucking.

When you request a quote from Professional Drivers, we consider the type of car, where it’s going, when you need the service, and what/who is going in the vehicle (unlike transportation carriers, we’re happy to travel with your pets in the car).
