2016 Ferrari CaliforniaProudly shipped by SGT Auto Transport
This red beauty just arrived at “her” new home in Santa Monica, California. The customer was very concerned about the shipping, since he is doing this for the first time.

2019 Porsche PanameraProudly shipped by SGT Auto Transport

1969 Buick LeSabreProudly shipped by SGT Auto Transport
An absolute classic! Or should we call this a muscle car? What else could you possibly need. This beauty was shipped from the heart of Chicago and delivered to a restoration shop in East Bronx. The customer required no more than 3 cars on the trailer so we arranged this as promised.
1970 Chevy CorvetteProudly shipped by SGT Auto Transport
For this shipment, we were hired through uShip. This customer had a very firm timeframe for pick-up and delivery. The customer required a pick-up within 24 hours because he wanted to be there at the time of pick-up to see the car get loaded and as well as complete the inspection report himself. We managed to meet his expectations with flying colors.
2017 Porsche PanameraProudly shipped by SGT Auto Transport
We've been shipping this vehicle since 2017. Our “snowbird” is using us for this vehicle twice a year to ship his car from New Jersey to his house in Key West, FL.

After the previous shipper cancelled on the customer at the last minute, the customer was able to find us late afternoon on Friday with a special requirement to arrange his transportation over the weekend due to time restrictions. We successfully delivered his vehicle 7 days later from Boston to Seattle. The Bentley still shines!

1957 Triumph TR3 that we shipped for a client that hired us on uShip. This was a challinging pickup as the seller of the car has owned it for the last 60 year. However, we successfully managed to load the vehicle and sefely deliver it to his home.

2. We pick up your vehicle
On the scheduled pick-up day, you’ll be given a few hours notice that the carrier is on their way. They need to confirm that the pick-up location is safe and legal for a large commercial vehicle. If it’s not, you need to think of an alternative location. Consider a wider or unrestricted street nearby, a parking lot that’s close by, or maybe your place of work. They are also getting in touch to confirm someone will be available to release the vehicle. If you can’t be there you can nominate a third-party to act on your behalf, for example, a neighbor, friend, relative, or work colleague.
When the carrier arrives you and the driver must closely inspect the vehicle for any existing damage. Any ding, dents, scratches, for example, must be recorded on the Bill of Lading. You’ll both have to sign this important document. You’ll be given a copy to keep safe.
The vehicle will then be carefully loaded onto the trailer and you can say your goodbyes. For your peace of mind, you can keep in regular contact with the driver. Regular updates can also be arranged by phone, email, or Live Chat.
3. You receive your vehicle
In a few days time, you’ll be contacted again to let you know your vehicle is almost home. A few hours before they’re due to arrive, the carrier will get in touch to let you know they’re almost there. As well being a courtesy call it’s also the carrier’s chance to check on the suitability of the delivery location and to make sure you’ll be at the location to accept the car. You can nominate a third party, such as a friend, relative, neighbor, or acquaintance, if you’re not going to be available. They do, however, have to be 18 years of age or older.
When your vehicle is delivered, you must check it over once again to ensure everything is in order. The final step is to sign the Bill of Lading to accept delivery. If you opted for a Discounted Cash Price, the balance now has to be made either in cash, cashier’s check, or money order.

Hints & tips for transportation services for college students
College students car transportation advices from experienced car shippers
The cheapest way to ship a car is using open car transport. A carrier collects your vehicle and safely transports it to a location of your choice. The actual cost depends on several factors, including distance traveled, make and model of car, vehicle condition, time of the year, and location.
Choosing auto transport companies near you is going to be far more helpful. You’ll be able to contact them quickly and even drop by if you need to. Being able to talk to a local business about availability, pricing, how the process works, or anything else you’re concerned or wondering about has to be much better than communicating with a company that is across the other side of the country.
When it comes to buying a car, however, it’s not quite the same. eBay does not ship cars for customers who buy them. Typically, you’re the one responsible for getting your purchase home.
