We managed to meet his expectations with flying colors.

2. We pick up your vehicle
Your assigned car shipping carrier will contact you a few hours before your scheduled pick-up. They will confirm the details of your pick-up. The driver also needs to know whether the location is safe and legal for a large commercial vehicle. Don’t worry if it isn’t because alternative arrangements can be made, such as a parking lot, a wider street nearby, or where you work. The call is also to check someone will be available to release the vehicle. You can nominate a third party to act on your behalf, such as a neighbor, friend, relative, or work colleague, if you can’t be present at the pick-up. They do, however, have to be over 18 years of age. Show more
3. You receive your vehicle
The car transport carrier will get in touch a few hours before they make their delivery. They like to give you a few hour’s notice so you can make sure you’re available. If you’re not, it’s not a problem. Simply nominate a neighbor, friend, acquaintance, or colleague to accept delivery on your behalf. They do, however, have to be over 18 years of age. Show more

Frequently asked car shipping questions
Everything you need to know about our reliable auto transport services
Whether you get a car shipping quote online or from one of our auto transport shipping advisors, it will be valid for seven calendar days. The reason for this timeframe is that the car transport industry is very dynamic. Auto transport rates can change every week. Rest assured, however, we believe in fair pricing and want to give you the most accurate price possible.
Yes, your vehicle is fully insured from the moment a carrier picks it up to the time of delivery. We pre-screen every car shipping carrier to ensure they meet all insurance requirements under the Department of Transport (DOT) regulations. How much your vehicle will be insured depends on your vehicle’s value, the type of trailer used, and the company.
Typically, an open car transport carrier will offer cargo insurance coverage between $100,000 and $150,000. An enclosed auto transport carrier will offer cargo insurance coverage between $250,000 and $3,000,000. We can provide all carrier’s certificates of insurance upon request.
Things are slightly different for Hawaii vehicle shipments as they are subject to the ocean freight liner’s insurance limitations. Our shipping advisors will be able to give you more details.
Here at SGT Auto Transport, we offer two payment options with our car shipping services - Discounted Price and Regular Price.
- Discounted Price: We collect a small partial payment from your credit or debit card once we’ve assigned a carrier to pick up your vehicle. You’ll pay the balance to the driver when they deliver your car. You pay in cash, with a cashier’s check or money order.
- Regular Price: You pay in full when we assign a carrier to pick up your vehicle. At the time of delivery, there is no balance to pay.
People generally book their car shipping delivery service between 1 and 2 weeks in advance. Doing this allows us to find and secure your auto transport service promptly.
If, however, you’re in a hurry and only have a day or two before your desired pick-up date, we can offer a guaranteed pick-up service. We recommend you speak with one of our experienced auto transport advisors and clarify the price and timeframe. Once the car shipping booking is complete, we will contact you to arrange the final details.
Yes, you can get a free, instant car transport quote using our instant online calculator, but you will need to provide your pick-up and delivery city/ZIP codes. You can also call and speak with our auto transport shipping advisors or use Live Chat. You don’t have to supply the exact address to get a car shipping quote, but you will need to provide it when you book your auto transport service.
The First Available Pick-up Date is the date when your vehicle is ready to be picked up. Once we have assigned a car shipping carrier for your shipment, we will specify the exact car transport date of your shipment.
The actual transit time for our auto transport services depends on several factors. These include traffic, road construction, weather, seasonality, detours, and driver’s hours. On average, you can expect it to take 1-2 days for distances under 200 miles. It can take up to 9 days for distances over 2,000 miles.
Rest assured, our car shipping advisors do everything they can to ensure your car is shipped efficiently, quickly, and with no delays.
If you’re pushed for time, we can offer an express car shipping service or a guaranteed pick-up. These auto transport services expedite the shipping process.
You can have up to 100lbs in the trunk/cargo area of the vehicle being shipped, but you must secure the items in a single box or suitcase.
If you want to load more personal items when you ship your car, you must provide the estimated weight when making your auto transport booking. That way, we’ll be able to provide you with an all-inclusive price.
Specific requirements have to be followed when you ship personal items in your car. Both front seats and front seat floorboards must be empty and free of any personal items. The backseat and backseat floorboards must also be empty and free of any personal items unless you’ve received an all-inclusive rate for items to be placed there.
According to Department of Transportation (DOT) regulations, you’re not allowed to ship anything outside the vehicle on an open transport trailer. You can ship additional items in an enclosed auto transport trailer, such as an engine or transmission, but you must secure them in a crate.
If you want to ship your vehicle to/from Hawaii, the above information does not apply. You’re not allowed to ship any personal items inside the vehicle. If any items are found, the port will refuse the vehicle. The only exception to this rule is children’s car seats.
The standard car shipping pick-up window is between 1 to 4 business days from the first available pick-up date. This is the date when your vehicle is ready to be picked up for car transport.
