State-to-State Transport For Non-Working Cars

Not every auto shipper will be able to move a nonworking car so that narrows your choices, at least to some extent, right out of the gate. The good news is that most state-to-state car movers will be able to handle the job, providing they have a winch to load the vehicle. Most shippers will charge a small additional fee, usually between $50 and $100, to ship a car that is non-operational.

What Is A Non-Operable Car?

A car is considered inoperable when it cannot be functionally operated for any reason. This could mean it doesn’t start, has an important component missing, or simply is not working at full capacity. Nonworking cars can create a problem when shipping because most vehicles are wheeled, driven, or towed onto the transport platform. Here are some examples of cars that are considered inoperable for transport purposes:

  • Cars on blocks or missing tires
  • Missing or damaged mechanical components
  • Expired registration
  • Vehicle that cannot be driven for other reasons

Transporting Cars From State To State

Not every car shipping company has the operating authority to ship vehicles between states (known as interstate operating authority). Of those companies that are authorized—and there are many—not all of them will be able (or willing) to transport a nonworking car.

Ideally, you should work with a company that has ample experience moving inoperative cars. As with any type of service, experience counts, and that goes double for any type of specialty service that is outside the norm of what’s typically offered.

State-To-State Shipping Costs For Nonworking Cars

Just like any other type of vehicle, nonworking or otherwise, the primary factor in the shipping cost is going to be the distance. As you might expect, it will cost significantly more to ship a nonworking car from New York to California than it would to ship the same car from New York to Texas or Colorado. Here are some recent shipping prices from around the U.S. for nonworking cars:

  • Los Angeles, CA to Las Vegas, NV - $604
  • Dallas, TX to Miami, FL - $765
  • Minneapolis, MN to Denver, CO - $771
  • Chicago, IL to Phoenix, AZ - $992
  • Boston, MA to Nashville, TN - $803
  • Seattle, WA to Detroit, MI - $1,112
  • Philadelphia, PA to Kansas City, MO - $785
  • Albuquerque, NM to Atlanta, GA - $794
