Amtrak: Ship Your Vehicle with us

Shipping your vehicle via Amtrak is quite a unique method of transport, but far from unheard of. It is usually utilized by those on the east coast (most often by snowbirds) because the Amtrak Auto Train has a good network over there.

In terms of convenience, as long as your starting point and destination are both along the route, it can’t be beaten. However, if your stops are not located along the path of the Auto Train, it may not be a feasible option for you.

If you do find that Amtrak car transport, or Auto Train, would be a good fit, there are several great benefits you can utilize.

Ride Along.

While Amtrak is still primarily a people mover and not a car carrier you can take your automobile with you the whole way. You can just drive up to the station and have your car picked up and then wait for it at your destination until it arrives at its scheduled time. Even while door-to-door service is available from many traditional auto transport firms you will still need to arrange for transportation to the airport or train station. When riding the Amtrak Auto Train this is never an issue.

Amtrack Auto Train Provide Comfortable Ride.

Rather than a long, stressful road trip behind the wheel, putting so much wear and tear and countless miles on your vehicle, the Amtrak transport provides a relaxing journey from point A to point B. Not only do you receive world-renowned Amtrak treatment, you have your choice of accommodations, free wi-fi, and all meals automatically included. Imagine sitting back, relaxing, or working, or sleeping, all while in motion, avoiding traffic to get you and your vehicle safely to your final destination.

Upgrades Available.

If you so choose, you can upgrade to business class when using Amtrak Auto Train, and enjoy all the additional amenities provided by this higher level service. Certain additional benefits include:

  • Ability to cancel free of charge up until departure.
  • Point bonus for rewards members.
  • Complimentary water and comfort kit.
  • Meal delivery.
  • Much, much more.

Auto Train also has another upgrade option which allows you priority boarding and offloading, so your vehicle can be one of the first to be offloaded from the train. This is a major time saver and definitely an option to explore if you can afford it.

Amtrak Auto Train is really a great option for car transport, as long as you have a standard size vehicle, truck, or SUV, AND your starting and ending points fall conveniently along the route (from Washington D.C. to Florida). However, if this does not work out for your personal situation, there are plenty of reputable auto transport companies willing to help you out and get you and your vehicle where you want to go.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★ choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

You have my full support and recommendation!

A1 Auto Transport... From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
