How Much Does It Cost To Ship Or Ship A Car From State To State?

One of the most common questions we hear from our customers, as well as prospective customers asking for a price quote, is how much it costs to ship a car from one state to another. One thing that sometimes gets lost in this inquiry is that the shipping distance is the main factor in pricing and, depending on which cities you’re shipping to or from, there can be a difference of several hundred miles, which drastically alters the total cost you can expect to pay. However, before we get down to some hard numbers, it’s important that we review some of the important things to look for before you ask for a price quote.

The first thing you want to know about a company—before you contact them, ideally—is how much experience they have with interstate car towing. That’s not to say that a company with five years of experience is worse than one with 20, but being established and trusted within the industry, as well a longer track record of successful shipments and satisfied customers, is always a good thing.

Along with experience shipping long distance, it’s a best practice to seek out auto transport companies with experience in both the state you’re shipping to and the one you’re shipping from. A good indicator of this is if they have a physical office presence in both areas, or at the very least, the region. If you’re have a car towed to Kentucky, it stands to reason that you’ll want the company you use to have transport terminals there and, even better, an office located in the city or area you’re in which you’re shipping.

Information You’ll Need To Get The Most Accurate State To State Shipping Estimate

  • Year, make and model of vehicle
  • Current city and destination city
  • Type of transport service requested
  • Any special handling issues (enclosed transport, inoperable vehicle)
  • Desired pick up and delivery dates

Projected Costs For State To State Car Shipping

Now that we’ve reviewed the basics of finding an interstate auto transporter, as well as the information you’ll need to get an estimate, let’s dig into some examples of pricing. As noted above, the main cost indicator is the distance you need your vehicle shipped. There are certain services and vehicles that can potentially add to the cost, so these numbers should be viewed as an estimate, even if they are being pulled from past shipments. These prices reflect costs for running vehicles that are not oversized, such as smaller trucks, coupes and sedans:

Los Angeles, CA to Denver, CO - $723

Atlanta, GA to Portland, OR - $1,379

Chicago, IL to Las Vegas, NV - $995

Albany, NY to Pittsburgh, PA - $467

Dallas, TX to Columbus, OH - $675

Minneapolis, MN to Orlando, FL - $861

Philadelphia, PA to Charlotte, NC - $503
