How auto shipping works
Enter the pick-up and delivery address
With our instant online calculator all you need to input are the two zip codes. One for the pick-up address and one for the delivery address. When you input the zip codes the city and state will pop up automatically.
Choose between open and enclosed transport
When it comes to transporting your car you have two options. Which one you choose will impact on the price, security, protection and availability. The type of vehicle you want transported is also going to affect your decision. Open shipping is the most economical but your vehicle will be exposed to different weather conditions and traffic grime. Enclosed transport is more expensive, but your vehicle will be completely protected and more secure. This is a better option if you want to ship your luxury, classic, custom, sports or high-end vehicle.
Once you’ve decided on the type of transport, simply click the ‘Get a Quote’ button and you’ll be taken to the next page.
Vehicle details and condition
Using the drop-down lists you first choose the year your vehicle was manufactured, then the make and model. If your vehicle was manufactured before 1941 you’ll need to contact a shipping agent for a customized quote. If you can’t find the make and model of the vehicle you want shipped, you’ll also need to speak with a shipping agent. You can call (866) 774 6570 or use the live chat option.
Is your vehicle running or not? Check the appropriate box.
Once you’ve completed this section of the calculator click the ‘Shipping Details’ button.
Contact details and pick-up date
A copy of your quote will be sent to your preferred email address so you need to input this into the space. When the email is sent this locks in your quoted price for the next 7 days. If the quote expires, this isn’t a problem because the details are saved and it can be recalculated. Rest assured we will not share your email details with anyone else and will not spam you. If you don’t want to provide your email address you can speak with one of our shipping advisors by calling (866) 774-6570.
