How to Ship a Car from New York to California?

Importing your vehicle from New York to California is something you will need a transport expert for. Things can go wrong even in the simplest of circumstances so if want reliable service, you will need to have a reliable company that knows the ins and outs of transporting to anywhere around the world.

Shipping a car from New York to California costs money and how much will be determined by a few factors. If you want to protect your vehicle, you will want to choose enclosed auto transport trailers. These are perfect for the luxury vehicles, classic vehicles, or sports vehicle of high value. While this method is certainly more expensive, it is worth it in order to protect your investment. Enclosed transport will also protect your vehicle from all weather elements as well as any conditions on the road.

Choosing open carrier for auto transportation.

Open trailers are another option if you don't have to protect your investment as much. While it's great to have a vehicle in an enclosed trailer, even brand new vehicles are transported by open carrier every time. While it may not protect your vehicle from weather elements and road conditions, your vehicle will be fine, when it reaches its destination.

The transport process takes on average between seven and ten days if you choose an open carrier. If you choose to transport in an enclosed trailer, it will take longer depending on if your vehicle is shipped by train or by a private broker.

Another factor that will determine the cost of shipping a car from New York to California is the total distance it takes. If the vehicle is running or not running will also be a determining factor. The fuel cost is a contributing factor that drivers must consider when quoting a price. You can expect to pay anywhere from $1000.00 to $1500.00. Open carrier quotes are more like $1200 - $1400 if going to San Diego, Sacramento, or San Francisco.

How is the Cost of Shipping Determined?

To determine the cost and give you a quote, the shipping agent will need to know the following:

  • Your vehicle's make.
  • Your vehicle's model.
  • Any modifications that have been done or need to be done.
  • Type of transport you are choosing to get your vehicle to California.
  • Pick up location.
  • Delivery location.
  • The current rate of shipping.
  • The season or time of the year (The cost is higher in the winter than it is in the summer due to the fact that many people are moving south during this season).

When speaking to your shipping agent, find out if they are giving you a quote based on a car shipping quote calculator or if their quote is manual, meaning that they do not use software to determine the quote.ย You want your shipping quote to be affordable and something that will work for everyone involved including the carrier. Prices should be fair.

Satisfied Customers

“Thanks to Joe, moving my car was easy. It was real easy to get a hold of him over the phone or text, and he was real nice to talk to. I was set to use another auto transport company, but I just stopped hearing from them. Joe got me scheduled in five minutes flat. My Hyundai needed to go from New York to Florida. No comments on the carโ€™s state at arrival. It was as I left it. Definitely worth my money.”

“Our car was delivered here in New York just eight days after it was picked up in Palo Alto, California. This is its second transcontinental trip with A-1 and I think you've done a terrific job. Thank you, Howard Epstein, NYC”

“My experience using A1 Auto Transport went well. I had to take my car from New York to South Carolina. I thought of several options, even driving it myself, but the cost and convenience of auto transport won me over. I called A1 after reading some reviews, and it was a good choice. Joe detailed the entire process and gave me several cost and transportation options. He answered every question which convinced me he wasnโ€™t some amateur. Since I had to be in South Carolina by the 30th, I drove part of the way and left his team to handle the rest. They let me know when the car will arrive 24 hours prior, and it arrived in great condition. The stuff I left in it was still there.”

“I wish Iโ€™d known about A1 Auto Transport a year ago when my sister and her fam had to move to Alaska. They tried to get their cars transported, only to get ripped off by some other car relocation company that left her Cruze in a mess and charged her exorbitantly. You wonโ€™t run into any of those hassles with A1 Auto Transport, thank god. And the people who helped me all the wayโ€ฆ I hope their whole team and their higher ups are all reading this review, so they can know how wonderful the service I got from them was. Very reliable people. They quoted me a reasonable price. And for such awesome customer service, Iโ€™d be glad to pay these guys more just for existing.”

“The only thing I can say about A1 Auto Transport and Joe is theyโ€™re the only transport company youโ€™ll ever need. They moved our vehicle to Virginia in February and the car got there on the exact day they promised. The driver notified us all throughout the transport. After a couple months, we had to go back to Rhode Island thanks to work. I found someone cheaper and figured Iโ€™d save a couple bucks. Big mistake. The driver was 10 hours late. He arrived at 2 am, woke up our kids, then yelled at us for complaining about it. I showed him the finger and he took off, leaving our cars stuck in the driveway. We had to catch a flight in 4 days. I called Joe. He was on vacation, and he still made it 1 day before our flight to pick up our cars. The driver was excellent, professional, and super friendly. Transportation went smoothly and we got our vehicles back 6 hours early. We met Joe once more when picking them up, and it was just perfect. As far as weโ€™re concerned, theyโ€™re the perfect company.”
