Why Ship a Car Direct?

Welcome to Ship a Car Direct, the industry leader in stress-free and reliable car shipping services.

With our focus on transparency, integrity, and customer satisfaction, we have become the trusted choice for people seeking a dependable car shipping process.

Our unofficial motto is - "We make the process of shipping your car suck LESS."

Shipping a car will never be a fun process, but our dedication to customer satisfaction sets us apart. Believe it or not, we were the first ever car shipping company to not require upfront deposits. We believe in the quality of our service and have always put our focus on building trust with our customers. You can rely on us to handle your car shipment without any financial commitment until your vehicle is successfully set for shipment with one of our fully vetted carriers. We also have no cancellation fees, because we're asking you to put a lot of trust in us, so we put that trust right back into our customers to treat us as fairly and openly as you want to be treated.

Our team consists of culturally and geographically diverse group of dedicated employees, strategically located in New York, Austin, Denver, Orlando and (of course) Los Angeles - where our journey began. With widespread coverage, we provide localized expertise and personalized support spread across multiple time zones to ensure your car shipping experience is smooth and stress-free.

We value the trust our customers place in us and strive to maintain our position as the customers' number one choice for car carrier services.

The owner of Ship a Car Direct personally understands the intricacies of the car shipping process. His passion for delivering exceptional service inspired him to establish this company. He has experienced the challenges firsthand (having removed a carrier from our list after they tried to pull some shady tricks when delivering his personal vehicle) and is dedicated to continuously improving our services to provide you with a hassle-free car shipping experience.

We offer a free app, available on iOS and Android to help fully document the condition of your car before you ship it and to help give added protection in the rare chance of a damage claim. In fact, you're welcome to download and use our app even if you don't hire us (but why in the world would you not hire us?!)
