Car Transport Options
Relocating from state to state or country is a common phenomenon today. The biggest challenge for many people is moving personal items, especially their cars. This task is highly involving and expensive. This is why you need to weigh your options carefully before making a decision. You can choose to ship by air, train, water or road.
Shipping By Plane
It is a common option to ship luxury, classic or expensive automobiles. Shipping via a plane is also suitable during emergencies and when the destination is an island or has a poor road and train network. An automobile is loaded into a cargo plane and transported to your desired location. It is the fastest way of relocating a car. The biggest challenge with shipping via a plane is the cost. Unless you’re shipping a valuable car, the cost of shipping via plane could surpass the car’s value.
Shipping By Train
It is more or less similar to shipping by air but is not as fast and costly as shipping by air. A car is loaded into a carrier train and transported. The challenge with shipping via train is that the railway network is not as connected as the road network. Merritt Island, for example, is an island, and accessing it via a train is impossible.
Shipping By Boat
If your destination is an Island or a country on a different continent, you have no choice but to ship by water. It is the cheapest way of shipping a car. However, shipping by water is one of the slowest means. You will have to wait for your car to arrive at your destination for weeks or months.
Shipping By Trailer
Shipping cars using a trailer is the most popular and convenient way of relocating a car. Most carrier companies own open-air trucks and enclosed trucks. Open-air carrier trucks can ship ten to twelve cars, while an enclosed carrier truck can ship four to six cars. The auto carrier option depends on car type, condition, and budget.
Looking at all the above transport options, shipping via a carrier truck is the most flexible way of relocating a car. The Road network is well connected, and you can use it to move your car to any part of this country. Furthermore, they are affordable compared to shipping a car via plane or train.
How To Ship a Car?
You can reach out to a carrier company directly or through a broker. Auto carrier brokers work with a large network of car transport companies to help customers find the best shipping option that suits their needs.
Even though car shipping companies work in different ways, here is a simple procedure used by many transporters to ship cars:
The first thing to do is to request quotes from multiple car transport companies. Most companies will require you to answer the following questions when filling out a quote form:
- Vehicle make and year of manufacture
- Pickup location and destination
- Timelines (pickup and delivery dates)
- Auto-shipping option (Open carrier or enclosed carrier)
- Vehicle condition (operable or inoperable)
The transporter will give an instant quote upon filling out the quote form. But with a broker, you may not find a quote immediately because they have to find a quote that suits you.
Note that the quote is only an estimate of how much you’re likely to pay as shipping cost. However, you should not expect the quote to change much, especially if the information you provide to the quote form is accurate.
Pick A Company
Once you have multiple quotes at hand, compare them and select one that suits your needs. At this point, you may be required to make a small payment as a deposit to confirm your booking. You should go for a company that allows for partial payment at the beginning of the shipping process and full payment once the process is done.
Ensure the payment options provided by the transporter are suitable for you. Also, they should be verifiable in case of issues at any stage of the shipping process. Even though other payment options are applicable, most auto shipping companies prefer payments through credit and debit cards.
Prepare Your Car for Shipping
Once you have signed a deal with the shipping company, they will give a convenient pickup date to both parties. You can then go ahead and prepare your car for shipping. Here is a checklist of things you should do while waiting for the pickup date;
- Take your car for service maintenance
- Clean the interior and exterior of your car
- Declutter the car
- Leave the fuel tank no more than ¼ full
- Put together documentation
Drop Off and Pick Up Your Car
On the pickup date, take your vehicle to the pickup location (terminal-to-terminal service) or wait for the shipping company to pick up the car from your location (door-to-door service). Inspect the car with the carrier truck driver before signing a form noting any pre-existing damages.
Reputable auto transport companies provide regular updates on the shipping progress, while others go further to provide GPS tracking.
One or two days before arrival at the destination, you will get a notification to pick up your car. Once again, inspect the car with the carrier truck driver. If you’re satisfied with the condition of your car, make the final payment and sign the bill of lading before driving it away.

It is generally a bad idea to ship a car with personal items. Most transporters require you to empty the car before handing it over. A few companies, however, allow up to 100 pounds of cargo on the car. Personal items on the car add weight to the car, increasing the final shipping cost. Also, the transporter insurance cover does not cover personal items.
Often, it’s cheaper to drive a car than to ship it. However, cross-country driving comes with challenges like harsh weather conditions, rogue drivers, road jams, and wear and tear on the car, among others, making car shipping a perfect alternative.
It depends on the car you’re shipping and the transportation distance. If the shipping cost exceeds the value of your vehicle, then you should consider selling your car and buying another at your destination. You should consider driving if the transportation distance is 500 miles or less.
