Door To Door Luxury Car Shipping | Process & Procedure
Most of the vehicles that are shipped door-to-door are moved using an enclosed vehicle carrier, which works out doubly well for customers transporting a luxury car. Standard car carriers are open-air and move multiple vehicles—sometimes up to 12 or more—at the same time. You’ve likely seen one driving on the highway stacked with several cars on two levels.
An enclosed carrier, on the other hand, moves fewer cars at once and they are completely covered in the enclosed cargo are of the truck. Enclosed carriers usually move no more than four cars at once, and often just one or two.
At A-1 Auto Transport, Inc. we usually recommend enclosed transport for cars valued at or above $40,000, though that is ultimately up to the person having their car shipped. As mentioned above, this is doubly true if you’re opting for door to door transport for a luxury car. The reason is that the vehicle is more protected, both from curious eyes and potential damages while in transit, in addition to being easier to deliver to a specific address due to the smaller size of the car carriers.
Luxury Car Delivery Timeframe
The delivery time for a luxury car isn’t really much different from it would be for any other type of vehicle. Once the car is securely loaded onto the transport truck, the process moves forward the same way it would with any other car or truck.

To give you an idea what to expect, most transport trucks can cover around 300 miles per day, depending, of course, on weather, road conditions, traffic and other outside factors. A car shipped from coast to coast in the U.S. could take anywhere from 10 days to two weeks. Door-to-door transport is sometimes a little faster since the trucks carry fewer cars and can cover more distance in the same amount of time.
Types Of Luxury Cars
Regardless of what type of luxury car you have, the transport process is the same. As mentioned above, most door to door shipping is done on an enclosed carrier, which we recommend for any luxury or high-end car. Here are some of the makes we most commonly arrange shipping for:
If you have a luxury brand vehicle that is a crossover, SUV, or larger than a standard car, some arrangements may need to be made for transport. For example, Lexus and Mercedes-Benz both have models that are larger and would require an enclosed carrier with more space in the cargo area.
