We get it: your luxury car is your baby. You treat it with the utmost care and attention on a daily basis, so why wouldn’t you expect the same from a car shipping company? Whether you’re moving your luxury car to show off at a car show or moving to the other side of the country, here are several key reasons why you should use a reputable car shipping company to transport your most prized possession.
A Reputable Company Will Save You Time and Money
Did you know that an experienced car shipping company can end up saving you money? An individual taking a trip across the country will need to pay for gas, overnight accommodations, and three meals a day. When you enlist the help of a car shipping company to transport your luxury vehicle, you just need to pay for the cost of transporting your vehicle (which can save you hundreds in the process!) ShipaCarDirect.com offers an Iron-Clad, Damage Free guarantee, so you can spend time on more pressing matters while they take care of your vehicle with the same quality of care you would.
They’ll Treat Your Luxury Vehicle as Though It’s Their Own
Reputable car shipping companies take pride in their service, which is why a luxury vehicle isn’t just someone’s ‘baby.’ When it’s in their care, they’ll treat it like their baby. Not all companies will offer the same level of care, which is why it’s important to get a competitive quote, talk to a live employee over the phone, and read up on their recent testimonials. With the right car shipping company, your vehicle will be placed under their undivided attention and care—so, the state of your luxury vehicle when you dropped it off is the exact same state it returns to you in.

If you want to ensure that your luxury car makes it there without so much as a scratch or dent, you need to put your trust in a car shipping company that’s not only been in the business for years (the longer, the better), but has the testimonials to show for it. Testimonials are a great validating tool for new customers to determine the quality of service, credibility and level of care the car shipping company offers. You can learn how quickly they will respond with a quote, how seamless their shipping process is (from start to finish), and how on-point they were with the estimated delivery date.

Michael starting working in car shipping over 20 years ago, in 2002; back in the days when fax machines ruled the roost, being the first name listed in the yellow pages was King and google wasn’t yet a verb. Sometimes he foolishly thinks he’s seen every situation imaginable when it comes to shipping a car, but about once a year he’s proven wrong.
Frequently Asked Questions
Honest Answers to Your Car Shipping Questions
Yes, we always ask for your specific pickup and delivery addresses, if the carrier can get right to the addresses you provide, they will. If the addresses that you give us are not safely accessible for a Multi-car carrier, however, you will need to make arrangements with the driver to meet at a nearby location where the carrier can safely get in and out.
People do it all the time (rarely for free) but the official answer is no.
Not what you wanted to hear, we know, but that is the honest answer.
We are not licensed to broker the shipment of household goods and, likewise, no car carrier that operates in the USA is licensed to transport them from state to state either. Despite what you might be being told by other car shipping companies you may speak with.
Remember, at the end of the day we're all salespeople, and the true answer to this question is not a great selling point.
You will hear a lot of companies tell you that you can put up to 100 pounds of items in the trunk, but that is not entirely true. That fact is that items of that amount are fairly common and the department of transportation is probably not going to split hairs and fine the trucker over items of that amount, provided they are not over their weight limit. They could fine them, however, if they see a vehicle stuffed full of personal items so the car carrier will most likely try to negotiate something with you to cover themselves against any costs they could incur. It's not something we can build into your contract though.
We have a short and helpful video on this topic in our user videos.
Only in rare cases and car carriers will usually charge a premium to make it happen.
All dates given by car carriers are typically estimates and projections.
For this reason (and to keep your cost down) we ask that you build in some flexibility and give us the earliest possible date you would be WILLING to release the vehicle, even though it may not be your preferred date.
We'll put you in direct contact with your car carrier and the driver will also typically call you the afternoon or evening before your pick up and delivery (they won't just show up unannounced, and if they do we want to hear about it). However, car carriers are out on the road battling traffic, weather and any number of other factors that can and do throw them off of their pickup and delivery projections from time to time.
If the projected dates we give you come and you are unable to make contact with your carrier, please call our office immediately so that we may help resolve the situation.
The average transit time from pick up to delivery on any vehicle going coast to coast will average 7 to 10 days. From there you can figure your transit time based on how far your vehicle is traveling, i.e. from either coast to the Midwest might average 3-7 days.
Even better, we do not even ask for payment until we have you confirmed for pickup by a safe, reliable, fully insured, direct car carrier. If for any reason you do not ship your car with the carrier that we arrange for you, there is no fee.
The fees paid directly to the carrier however, (in most cases, their fees are not paid until your vehicle is delivered) are not directly controlled by us, so any requests for a refund of the carrier's portion would need to be addressed with the carrier directly.
Of course! And you are always backed by our Damage Free Guarantee policy.
Part of what you pay us for is to verify that the car carrier that we put you on is covered by the proper amount of insurance and that everything is up to date.
There is never any additional cost to you for this coverage, and their insurance is always primary.
