Shipping a car overseas is a much different process than shipping a vehicle inside the U.S. If you live in Los Angeles and are interested in relocating to or are visiting London, consider hiring a professional auto transport company.
If you are not familiar with auto transport, do a bit of research online before hiring just anyone.
Reputable businesses can easily be found online and other sources. You can receive a free quote in just fifteen minutes over the phone. Talk to an agent about how much it will cost you to ship your vehicle from Los Angeles to London
How Much Does Shipping Cost?
There are a few different things that go into getting a quote. Distance, the method of transport and weight all play a role in how much the end total will be. Rates vary from customer to customer, but reputable businesses offer great discounts.
Collect at least three quotes from three different companies. Do not settle for a business just because they are the cheapest either. Professionals make their prices flexible so shipping a vehicle is an affordable reality for everyone.
Ways to Transport a Vehicle.
- Open Air Transport - Your vehicle will be loaded onto the back of an open carrier and hauled to its destination. No personal possessions are allowed in the vehicle when using this method of transport. If you do not mind your vehicle being exposed to the elements, this shipping solution is perfect for you.
- Enclosed Transport - This is a popular way to transport a vehicle, but it is the most expensive way to do so. If you have a very valuable vehicle or rare car, consider this option.
- Door to Door Delivery - This method is exactly what it sounds like. Your vehicle will be picked up at your door and delivered to its destination. This delivery option costs more, but it is worth the convenience.
- Terminal to Terminal Delivery - This method requires the shipper to drop off and pick up their vehicle. It is the most popular delivery option because it is the least expensive way to ship a vehicle. Make sure to arrange a ride home for yourself once you drop off the vehicle.
