Looking for a car shipping company should be easy, but that’s not always the case. Part of the problem is that there a lot of different players in the auto transport industry, and it’s not always easy to tell them apart. Some companies, called brokers, only arrange transport between customers and shippers. Shippers or carriers are the ones that physically move the vehicles and they sometimes rely on brokers to find them, customers. Other companies, such as Schumacher Cargo Logistics and Supreme Auto Transport on the list below, may operate as both a carrier and a broker.
In order to help our readers better determine which companies are actually moving cars and which are just providing scheduling and logistics, we’ve compiled this list of nationwide auto carriers. All the companies listed in this directory provide transport services of their own, usually to cities all over the U.S. and, in some cases, internationally.
