As a rule of thumb, it’s helpful if we have about a week to prepare your move effectively and efficiently. Once your order is placed and confirmed, United Car Shipping averages 7-15 days depending on the distance of the move.

Waiting until the last minute to book your transport likely will impact your cost to ship your car. Sometimes it can’t be avoided, but if possible, giving 7-10 days lead time helps avoid additional costs.

A delivery from a dealership can be arranged by you or the car dealership themselves. It’s likely you’ll want to find out at what time you’re the actual legal owner of the car. If it is when contracts are signed and keys are no longer the possession of the vehicle dealership, you might want to decide who should be transporting the automobile for and to you.

When you are needing to move your exotic vehicle, vintage car, classic cars or classic race cars, enclosed transport will likely be your favorite option. Closed transport offers the most protection for your car during transit.

With an enclosed trailer, you can defend your car from climate conditions, dirt, debris, and other issues it may encounter if it were on an open carrier. Enclosed vehicle transport will usually cost more than open transport, however we do recommend this service for particular cars which might be delicate, have a high sentimental value or high monetary value.


Door-to-door service is supplied by most car shipping companies. We will pick up and deliver your car as close to your doorstep as we can. Be mindful, our semi-trucks and trailers can’t always make it through some residential streets and residence communities.

Planning a trip to Albany? Here are some fun facts about the city.

Albany is a city in the U.S. state of Georgia. Located on the Flint River, it is the seat of Dougherty County. Located in southwest Georgia,[5] it is the principal city of the Albany, Georgia metropolitan area. The population was 77,434 at the 2010 U.S. Census, making it the eighth-largest city in the state.[1]

It became prominent in the nineteenth century as a shipping and market center, first served by riverboats and then by railroads. Seven lines met in Albany, and it was a center of trade in the Southeast. It was part of the Black Belt, the extensive area in the Deep South of cotton plantations. From the mid-20th century, it received military investment during World War II and after, that helped develop the region. Albany and this area were prominent during the civil rights era, particularly during the early 1960s as activists worked to regain voting and other civil rights. Railroad restructuring and reduction in the military here caused job losses, but the city has developed new businesses.

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!
