Using Brookline Auto Transport Services
Transport Timeframe - Outside of the cost of auto transport, one of the most frequent questions we hear is “how long will it take?” There are several factors that play into the answer to this question, but the basic timeframe is usually something like this:
- 300-500 miles: 1-3 days
- 500-1,000 miles: 3-4 days
- 1,000-1,500 miles: 4-5 days
- 1,500-2,000 miles: 5-8 days
- 2,000-3,000 miles: 8-12 days
Things that may affect the delivery time include bad weather, other shipments that need to be made along the way, and the type of service you request. Some shippers do offer expedited or express shipping if you need a last-minute or rushed delivery, both of which usually carry an additional cost.

Shipping Overseas - If you need a car shipped across the state or to another part of the U.S., you’ve got plenty of options. If, however, you need a vehicle delivered to another country, you need to be more discerning in who you choose to work with. International auto transport can be a tricky business due to the laws, taxes, and regulations being different from one country to another. An experienced international car shipper will be familiar with the process, including port locations, and be able to explain the details and obligations involved. If you need a vehicle shipped from Brookline to another country, make sure you first check what the import taxes will cost--in some cases, it can be as much as 50% of the vehicle’s value or more.
Exercise Caution - The auto transport industry is regulated by a wing of the U.S. Department of Transportation called the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. They work to make sure that companies have the proper licensing, operating authority and insurance to provide transport services. However, there are some companies that slip through the cracks and don’t follow the rules. These are the shippers you should watch out for and avoid. Here are some of the signs that could signal potential problems:
- A large upfront deposit is requested
- Payment is requested through wire transfer or money order
- An incomplete or unprofessional website
- Poor writing quality
- They can’t answer all your questions
