Check out some of our favorite auto transport stories
They show how we go above and beyond with our auto transport services
This gorgeous red beauty just dropped off at “her” new home in Santa Monica, California. Understandably, the proud owner was a little nervous as he’d never booked an auto transport service before. So we arranged for the car transport company to use a hard-side enclosed car shipping trailer.
If you’re wondering what door-to-door auto transport actually means, this is a prime example. The owner couldn’t believe his eyes when he woke up early in the morning, and his dream car was sitting right outside his front door. So he understandably tipped the vehicle shipping driver for a job well done!
Getting a McLaren 720 from your father for a graduation gift is not an everyday occurrence, but sometimes it happens, as it did for one very lucky guy. We carefully selected our carrier for this special shipment because we wanted to be sure there would be no hiccups with the car shipping service between New York and San Francisco.
What an absolute classic this motor is, or perhaps it’s better known as a muscle car. This is a car that dreams are made of, and it was a please to arrange a car shipping service when the owner needed to get it from the heart of Chicago to a restoration shop in East Bronx. The customer stipulated no more than three cars on the transport trailer, and we made sure this happened.
The owner of this stunning car hired us through uShip. The guy had a very specific timeframe for the pick-up and delivery. He required a car transport company that could pick up within 24 hours because he wanted to be present when the car was collected and supervise its loading. Being able to complete the vehicle shipping inspection report himself was also critical.
The owner of this vehicle has been making use of our auto transport services since 2017. Twice a year, this “snowbird” uses us to ship his car from New Jersey to Key West, FL, for the summer and back again for the winter.
It was a pleasure to provide a vehicle shipping service for this beautiful 1966 Chevrolet Impala SS’s owner. This repeat client from Bobo’s Rods & Customs has been using us as their car transport company since 2016. You really should check out their stunning inventory.
We were hired to provide an auto transport service for this vehicle that needed to be picked up and delivered to the famous Liberty Walk tuning shop. After some aftermarket additions, we loaded the car on the same truck and delivered it safely back to the customer in Houston, Texas.
The owner of this stunning Bentley Continental found themselves in a bit of a bind when their previous car shipping company canceled on them at the last minute. Due to time restrictions, they needed to arrange transportation over the weekend, and we were happy to oblige. We successfully delivered their vehicle seven days later, from Boston to Seattle. The Bentley still shines!
We’re a vehicle shipping company you can rely on, and we didn’t let the owner of this beast of a truck down when he needed to show it at the Monster Truck Show in North Carolina. It’s not the kind of vehicle that fits on a standard trailer, but that didn’t stop us. We arranged a flatbed trailer because of its oversized dimensions.
This picture is just one of two Ford Mustangs we shipped for this customer. He restores old muscle cars for a living and has become a regular client of our car transport company.
Bought from a private seller in Arizona, we loaded the car without any issues. The carrier was super happy to see such a vehicle in pristine condition. The customer required a few photos and video at the pick-up. Another auto transport service that went smoothly.
The proud owner of this new R8 couldn’t wait to get his camera out to capture the moment of delivery. The customer was eager to get behind the wheel as soon as the carrier had unloaded it and promptly sped off to take a ride in the city. To thank us for providing an excellent car shipping service, he kindly sent us a bottle of wine.
This client arranged our vehicle shipping service via uShip. The utmost care had to be taken when picking up this car as the seller had owned it for the last 60 years. However, unperturbed, we successfully managed to load the vehicle and safely deliver it to his home.
Now and again, we get to be the car transport company of choice for a really cool vehicle. We picked this 1940 Nash Lafayette up from Salem, OR for the American Pickers TV show.

2. We pick up your vehicle
Your assigned car shipping 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 that 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

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.

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.

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.

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.
