Auto transport will take time, so schedule your order as far in advance as possible. Usually a 10-day window is best. As a rule of thumb, it’s good if we have at least 7 days to plan your move efficiently and effectively. Once your transport is placed and confirmed, United Car Shipping averages 7-15 days depending on the distance of the transport.

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

For those who are needing to relocate your exotic vehicle, antique car, classic cars or classic race cars, enclosed transport will be your favorite option. Closed transport provides probably the most protection for each car during the move.

With an enclosed trailer, it will defend your vehicle from weather conditions, dirt, particles, and different issues it might encounter if it were on an open carrier. Enclosed automobile transport will usually cost more than open transport, however we do suggest this service for special automobiles which can be delicate, have a high sentimental worth or high market value.


Door-to-door service is supplied by most auto transport firms. We will pick up and deliver your car as close to your door as we can. Keep in mind, our semi-trucks and trailers can’t always make it through some residential streets and condominium communities. If necessary, we will work out an accessible parking lot to load or unload your vehicle with your driver while en route.

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

Atlanta (/ætˈlæntə/) is the capital and most populous city in the U.S. state of Georgia. With an estimated 2017 population of 486,290,[13] it is also the 38th most-populous city in the United States. The city serves as the cultural and economic center of the Atlanta metropolitan area, home to 5.8 million people and the ninth-largest metropolitan area in the nation.[7] Atlanta is the seat of Fulton County, the most populous county in Georgia. A small portion of the city extends eastward into neighboring DeKalb County.

Atlanta was originally founded as the terminating stop of a major state-sponsored railroad. With rapid expansion, however, it soon became the convergence point between multiple railroads, spurring its rapid growth. The city’s name derives from that of the Western and Atlantic Railroad’s local depot, signifying the town’s growing reputation as a transportation hub.[14] During the American Civil War, the city was almost entirely burned to the ground in General William T. Sherman’s famous March to the Sea. However, the city rose from its ashes and quickly became a national center of commerce and the unofficial capital of the “New South”. During the 1950s and 1960s, Atlanta became a major organizing center of the civil rights movement, with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Ralph David Abernathy, and many other locals playing major roles in the movement’s leadership.[15] During the modern era, Atlanta has attained international prominence as a major air transportation hub, with Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport being the world’s busiest airport by passenger traffic since 1998.[16][17][18][19]

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!
