Affordable and reliable services
Open-air shipping: You might have come across a truck carrying several cars on the road. That essentially explains what open-air shipping is all about. The trucks can economize on space and fuel because of their large capacity. That makes it cheaper for you.
Enclosed shipping: To avoid ruining the original paintwork, you can give your car some form of protective covering. You can get a protective cover for your car when shipping on open trailers. Enclosed trailers give the best protection in such cases. These are some of the features of our enclosed trucks:
- Air cushioned suspension for smoother rides

- Customized tie-downs for extra safety

Planning to ship your car
Shipping a car is a complex process and requires a lot of planning. The following tips will help you make a smooth transition with your car to your new home. This is also quite helpful if you are buying or selling a car.
- Plan in advance: You should space out enough time by planning a few weeks in advance. Delivery takes an average of about 2-4 weeks for domestic and 6-8 weeks for international shipping. Keep this in mind when making your plans. Try to talk to your transporter early enough and let them know of your timelines.
- Choose your delivery point: If you choose door-to-door delivery, find out if your street has enough space to accommodate our trucks. They are usually large and cannot fit in some of the streets and parking lots. If this is the case, find the closest point that is accessible. For terminal-terminal shipping, find the nearest terminal across Oregon. You can drop or pick your car from this terminal.
- Read up on the local laws: You will find that the laws on car ownership and driving differ from state to state. Visit the Oregon Department of Transportation to learn more about these and other regulations on shipping cars to or from Columbia County.
