Ship Your Car To Or From Decatur IL

Decatur is located in Macon County, in the middle of Illinois, between Chicago and St. Louis, Missouri.

Decatur is considered the “soybean capital of the world” and is home to Millikin University.

Using Decatur Vehicle Transport Companies

  • Storing Your Car – Weather can do a lot of damage to a vehicle and we’re no stranger to that effect here in Decatur. Proper winter storage, especially if you’re gone for an extended period, is essential to the health and maintenance of your car. This guide to winter auto storage from Car And Driver has the basics of what you’ll need to know.
  • Alternative Fuel Autos – For electric car owners, long distance transport can pose a particular problem since most current alternative fuel cars have a limited battery range and charging stations can be few and far between. (Decatur has a charging station–see the resources at the end of this article for more information.) Luckily, most companies have options available for electric car transport, which will become an increasingly cheaper option as fuel cells become lighter and more efficient.
  • Know Your Driver – You’re probably not personally going to know the person moving your car, but you should have the driver’s phone number at the very least. Surprisingly, some companies will still pick up a car–even to move it across the country–without giving their contact information to the customer. This can put you in a very bad spot if you’re unable to meet for drop off or there is a delay during transport.
