Can I ship personal items in my car?

Yes, you can have up to 100 lbs in the trunk/cargo area of the vehicle .Items must be contained to a single box or suitcase. However, if you'd like to load more personal items, you will need to provide the estimated weight of the items and we will provide you with an all-inclusive price. Both front seats and the front seat floorboards must remain empty and free of any personal items to avoid damage during transportation. 

The backseat must also remain empty unless you've received an all-inclusive rate for items to be placed there. Please, keep in mind per the Department of Transportation (DOT), we're not allowed to ship anything outside of the vehicle on an open transport trailer. You can ship items (additional engine, transmission, etc.) outside of the vehicle but they must be crated and can only be shipped with an enclosed auto transport trailer.

Land shipments - when you ship your vehicle on land all of the above information is valid in regards to shipping personal items.

Hawaii car transport shipments - when you ship your vehicle from/to Hawaii you are not allowed to ship any personal items inside the vehicle.

If any are found the port will refuse the shipment. If you have any specific requests for shipping personal items please don't hesitate to contact one of our experienced car shipping advisors via phone at (864) 546-5038 or Live Chat.
