Move Car To Another State

Are you shipping a vehicle from one state to another? There’s important information you should know before contacting a carrier for a price quote. The information below covers what contributes to the cost of interstate transport, how to go about getting an estimate, and how to research companies. We’re happy to answer any questions you may have, either through our online contact form or by calling us at the number at the top of the page.

Like any other type of vehicle transport, the cost of shipping a car between states is mainly dependent on the distance. There are other factors that come into play, such as fuel costs, a timeframe for delivery, and the method of transport and delivery. If you’re lucky enough to be shipping a car along a popular route (between New York and Florida is one example), it’s likely to cost slightly less than it otherwise might.

Thanks to the popularity of the online price quote within the interstate auto shipping industry, it’s easier than ever to get competing quotes and compare prices. The standard rules of evaluating a company’s history, service, and safety apply, but it’s a good idea to get a handful of cost estimates before making a final decision.

This way, you’ll be able to effectively assess the difference between companies and the services they offer, in addition to saving some money along the way. When contacting companies to ship a vehicle between two states, it’s important that they have interstate operating authority.

By using the Licensing and Insurance Public database from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, you can easily determine which companies do and do not have operating authority. Ask for the motor carrier license number (MC number) or USDOT number and you’ll have quick and easy access to the federal database of company records.

Additional Services For Interstate Car Shipping

There are many services built into the cost of transporting a vehicle such as insurance coverage and satellite tracking, but there are others that are considered “extras” and come with an associated cost. In this section, we’ll take a look at some of the other services that come with transporting a vehicle, as well as what options are available.

Storage - When shipping a vehicle over a long distance, there are certain times when the owner is unavailable when it’s being dropped off. When this happens, we are able to provide short-term storage facilities until such time as the car can be picked up.

We maintain vehicle storage facilities and pick up terminals in virtually every major metro area across the United States. Our facilities are locked, secured, and supervised through the use of closed circuit cameras.

GPS Tracking - Checking in on the status of your vehicle delivery is a feature that’s grown more popular as the technology to support it has become more widespread. Now customers can get an instant, real-time report on where their car is in the shipping process at any point they wish. It sure beats the old days of having to call the driver of the carrier directly!

Insurance - Insurance is included as part of every price quote we give out. That means that your vehicle is protected every step of the way, from loading through delivery and drop off. For vehicles that have a high value, either financially or sentimentally, supplemental insurance can be purchased in addition to the standard insurance coverage.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★ choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

You have my full support and recommendation!

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!

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 couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
