Shipping a Car from New York to California
๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ New York (NY)

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.

Itโ€™s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, Iโ€™ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. Itโ€™s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. Iโ€™ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business Iโ€™ve sent them. Iโ€™ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. Itโ€™s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!
★★★★★

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldnโ€™t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If thatโ€™s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust theyโ€™ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldnโ€™t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didnโ€™t know any better, I wouldโ€™ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Canโ€™t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I donโ€™t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.
★★★★★

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldnโ€™t decide on any of them.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldnโ€™t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldnโ€™t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected โ€œsurprises.โ€ I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!
★★★★★

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
