What is an auto transport service?
If you need to get a car, or any kind of vehicle, from A to B, an auto transport service provider can do it for you. The vehicle is transported using a truck and a trailer which means no wear and tear. It’s also much safer than driving long distances yourself.
How much does auto transport cost?
When you buy a car online and have it delivered, the cost of auto transport depends on several things. These include distance traveled, type and condition of car, and time of year. We do our very best to secure the best deal for your car transport services.
We go above and beyond with our online car buying shipment
Check out some of our valued customers stories
We arranged auto transport for this red beauty, but at first, the customer was a little concerned about the shipping because it was the first time he had ever done it. For maximum protection, we arranged a hard-side enclosed carrier who was happy for him to monitor the entire process to ensure the safe handling of his vehicle.
We offer door-to-door transport services, and this photo shows exactly what this means. This stunning Porsche Panamera was delivered to the customer’s front door. The carrier dropped the car off early in the morning, and when the owner woke up, his dream car was waiting outside. Needless to say, he tipped the driver for a job well done.
Receiving the gift of a supercar from your father for graduation is merely a dream for most people, but not the guy who received this McLaren 720. So we carefully selected our carrier for this shipment to ensure the pick-up in New York and delivery to San Francisco went according to plan.
Some would call this a muscle car, while others deem it a classic. We shipped this beauty from the heart of Chicago to a restoration shop in the East Bronx. The customer had one special request. He wanted no more than three cars on the trailer. We had no problems arranging this for him and ensuring his request was carried out.
The owner of this Chevy found our details and hired us through uShip. There was a very strict timeframe for the pick-up and delivery, but we met his expectations. The pick-up window had to be within 24 hours because he wanted to be there at the time of the pick-up and complete the inspection report in person. The customer let us know we had passed with flying colors.
As a snowbird, the owner of this Panamera has become a regular customer. Every year, we make sure it’s shipped safely and securely from New Jersey to his house in Key West, FL, and back again.
We shipped this head-turning 1966 Chevy Impala for a repeat client from Bobo’s Rods and Customs. We’ve been happy to have them as a customer since 2016. Any online car buyers out there should check out their stunning inventory.
The owner of this Lamborghini Huracan needed to get it to the famous Liberty Walk tuning shop. We were only happy to arrange an auto transport service. After the aftermarket conditions, the car was loaded back on the same truck and delivered back to the customer in Houston, Texas.
The owner of this stylish beauty had already arranged shipping, but the booking was canceled at the last moment, leaving them stranded. Luckily, they found us late afternoon on Friday with a particular requirement to arrange his transportation over the weekend because of time restrictions. It only took seven days for delivery from Boston to Seattle.
Not only are our services used by online car buyers, but we also get to take some of the best specimens to exhibitions and shows. This vehicle, for example, was delivered to the Monster Truck Show in North Carolina. This type of vehicle requires a special trailer because of its oversized dimensions. In this case, we arranged a flatbed trailer.
We were hired to ship two out of three Mustangs for this car restorer. His passion is old muscle cars, and we’ve been able to help him with his auto transport needs on several other occasions.
We arranged this shipment for one of our favorite online car buyers. He bought it from a private seller in Arizona, and we loaded it into the trailer 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.
We love it when customers capture the moment of delivery. This Audi R8 is being unloaded by the carrier, and its proud owner simply wanted to capture the moment for posterity. As soon as the tires hit the tarmac, he jumped in and took it for a ride around the city. To say thanks for a job well done, he not only sent us this photo but included a bottle of wine as well.
A client hired us on uShip to ship this classic 1957 Triumph TR3. The pick-up was challenging as the seller of the car had owned it for 60 years. But, all that aside, we successfully managed the shipment for the customer, arranging the pick-up and safe delivery to his home.
The American Pickers TV show called us up to arrange this super cool shipment. We picked up this 1940 Nash Lafayette from Salem, OR.

As well as confirming your pick-up, the driver will also need to make sure the location is accessible for large trucks and trailers. Alternative arrangements can be made if this isn’t the case. When talking with the driver, arrange a suitable location nearby, such as a parking lot, where you work, or a wider street. The carrier also needs to confirm someone is available to release the vehicle. If you can’t be there, you can nominate a third-party such as a neighbor, relative, friend, or colleague. Show more
3. You receive your vehicle
You’ll receive another important call when your car is almost home. To make sure you’re available, the carrier will contact you a few hours before the planned delivery time. If you’re otherwise engaged, don’t worry. A friend, family member, colleague, or neighbor can be nominated to accept delivery of your vehicle, on your behalf. The only stipulation is that they have to be at least 18 years of age. Show more
