Using Gaithersburg Vehicle Transport Companies
How Long Does It Take? Because most auto carriers are hauling several cars at once, there is a limit to how many miles they can travel in a day. This means that it may take as much as a week or more to ship a car across the country from Gaithersburg to the West coast. For shorter deliveries, within the region or along the eastern seaboard, the timeframe is usually just a couple of days. Some factors outside of the driver’s control may also affect delivery time, such as bad weather and road conditions. Here are some general guidelines for delivery times that we use for standard vehicles:
- 300 miles: 1-2 days
- 500 miles: 2-3 days
- 1,000 miles: 3-4 days
- 1,500 miles: 4-5 days
- 2,000 miles: 6-8 days
- 2,500+ miles: 7-12 days
These are estimates based on recent deliveries we’ve made. It should be noted that you can also pay an additional fee for express auto transport, which means the shipper will make every effort to deliver your vehicle as quick as possible.

Cost of Auto Transport - The first question that customers usually have about shipping their car is how much will it cost? To answer this question, we’ve put together a list of recent shipments we’ve made from Gaithersburg to give you and idea of what to expect. It should be noted that these prices reflect shipping costs for a standard vehicle on a multi-car carrier.
Doing Research - It’s not the easiest thing to find accurate information about auto transporters. You’ll be able to find plenty of testimonials, reviews, and ratings, but those all need to be taken with a grain of salt. To research safety ratings and operating authority for a car shipper, there’s really only one resource you should use: the website for the FMCSA, or the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. The FMCSA is a wing of the U.S. Department of Transportation and oversees transport and logistics companies. Using this resource, you’ll be able to look up information about specific companies, including their safety performance record, whether they have current insurance coverage, and if they have operating authority in the regions they ship to. The best way to look up a company is with their license number, which will be either an MX#, MC#, or USDOT#.
