But for specific answers regarding shipping a car to or from Austin, Texas, read on.

Our procedure to booking the transport of your vehicle is very simple. It can be summed up into three steps.


What’s the process for shipping my car from Austin, Texas? Great question. The first step is to book your move so your move team can start searching the most ideal transport for your vehicle.

They do have to take into consideration the size, weight, height and type of transporter you are requesting, which typically are open and closed options.

We will need general details about your vehicle like the VIN number, year, make and model of each vehicle you are transporting. This tells us the details we need to properly move your vehicle on a truck.

We will provide you a free transport quote that includes the entire expense required to move your car from origin to your destination. Our prices are guaranteed and will not change for any reason unless there are changes made to your auto transport.


The 2nd step in the process is the pick up of the car. In almost all cases, we do pick up at your location in Austin, Texas and deliver to the specific destination you gave us when you booked your shipping.

The most common factors that we deal with when picking up from a particular place are local limitations on getting a truck into the area. If there are no limitations regarding driving a big rig then we pick up from the destination you gave us when you scheduled your transport.

Once your transporter arrives, you will do a inspection of the vehicle with the driver. You both will sign the Bill of Lading that identifies any existing chips, damage or dents. After you receive a copy of your Bill of Lading, they will load the vehicle, secure it and prepare it for transport from Austin, Texas. Once it’s loaded in the truck the driver will start the journey to the next stop.

Because a driver moves more than on vehicle at a time, he/she may have more pick ups and drop offs to make before your car arriving at its final destination.


As the time gets closer for your auto to arrive, your carrier will call you. It is difficult for a transporter to know exactly when they will arrive before they get closer to the destination because of the many elements that can slow their progress. This includes traffic, weather and federal guidelines regarding rest and how long drivers can actually be on the road.

Normally, you should be contacted by your carrier typically within the last 24 hours before your auto is scheduled to arrive. Although we have made it clear to our drivers we prefer as much advance notice for our clients as possible, we do know sometimes they don’t know when they will get there until just a few hours before they get to their destination.

When the vehicle transporter arrives, you will repeat the same inspection that was completed when the auto was picked up. The transporter will have a copy of the Bill of Lading for you to compare pre-existing damage marked during the pick up inspection. You’ll look over the car again to ensure the car looks good and then sign the document. The driver will give you a copy for your records.

So transporting your auto to or from Austin, Texas can be a fairly easy process. We always strive to do all we can to make the entire experience pleasant for every client.

Why should I ship my car to Austin, Texas?

Driving your vehicle may not be the best way to transport your vehicle to another location. It puts miles on your car. Depending on the miles you will travel, there can be a lot of wear and tear — and just imagine if it needs maintenance while you’re on your way.

Untimely malfunctions can cost much more what it would have cost you to have an experienced transporter move it for you. Not to mention, the time it adds to your trip.

That’s why we offer convenient door-to-door delivery for all our clients.

Whether you’re shipping your car to or from Austin, Texas, let us help you get it transported safely. We are your reliable vehicle shipping team and we’re ready to move when you are.

I work for a high-end car dealer and we have been using United for some time now. Every time we shipping a car we get quotes from a few different companies, but we always seem to come back to these guys. They always have a good price and we know that they are going to do a fantastic job. Over the years we have had some minor issues, but the great thing about these guys is that they communicate well and solve the problems. I defiantly recommend these guys for shipping your vehicles.

I don’t know why i have to learn things the hard way:( I went with the cheapest company and they didn’t show up to pick up my car. I tried calling them all day long and they wouldn’t answer the phone. I had already given them a deposit and so then i had to go through the hassle of doing a chargeback. They had four-stars, so i thought i was good. I started calling around and i found joe with United Car Shipping. He was really nice and explained why the other company couldn’t get a driver to pick up my car. Joe was awesome and he got a driver to come out the next day. Everything worked out and i was very happy with this company. I ended up paying a couple hundred dollars more, and it was worth it! These guys are really nice and the understand how to communicate. Thumbs up for United!

Austin is the capital of the U.S. state of Texas and the seat of Travis County, with portions extending into Hays and Williamson counties. It is the 11th-most populous city in the United States and the 4th-most populous city in Texas. It is also the fastest growing large city in the United States,[5][6] the second most populous state capital after Phoenix, Arizona,[7] and the southernmost state capital in the contiguous United States. As of the U.S. Census Bureau's July 1, 2017 estimate, Austin had a population of 950,715[8] up from 790,491 at the 2010 census.[3] The city is the cultural and economic center of the Austin–Round Rock metropolitan statistical area, which had an estimated population of 2,115,827 as of July 1, 2017[update]. Located in Central Texas within the greater Texas Hill Country, it is home to numerous lakes, rivers, and waterways, including Lady Bird Lake and Lake Travis on the Colorado River, Barton Springs, McKinney Falls, and Lake Walter E. Long.

In the 1830s, pioneers began to settle the area in central Austin along the Colorado River. In 1839, the site was chosen to replace Houston as the capital of the Republic of Texas and was incorporated under the name "Waterloo." Shortly afterward, the name was changed to Austin in honor of Stephen F. Austin, the "Father of Texas" and the republic's first secretary of state. The city grew throughout the 19th century and became a center for government and education with the construction of the Texas State Capitol and the University of Texas at Austin.[9] After a severe lull in economic growth from the Great Depression, Austin resumed its steady development, and by the 1990s it emerged as a center for technology and business.[10] A number of Fortune 500 companies have headquarters or regional offices in Austin including, 3M,, Apple Inc., Cisco, eBay, General Motors, Google, IBM, Intel, Oracle Corporation, PayPal, Texas Instruments, and Whole Foods Market.[11]Dell's worldwide headquarters is located in a nearby suburb, Round Rock.
