HOW TO SHIP A CAR ENCLOSED?
If your car needs extra protection from weather and other elements, shipping your car enclosed is your best bet. As its name suggests, enclosed car shipping places your vehicle inside a carrier with 100% protection, totally enclosed during the entire transport.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO SHIP A CAR?
Total transport time averages 7-20 business days. Most shipments are picked up with 1-3 business days and delivered 7-14 days later. Some more remote areas may take up to 7 business days for the pick-up.
Pick up time is based somewhat on variables outside anyone's control, that's why auto transporters give you a window of time for pick up. Once you book your transport, we will chart out the path of available drivers that can be routed to your pick up location, yet also headed toward your destination.
Once your dispatch team determines the best carrier to assign to your transport, they will schedule your pick up and the driver will begin moving toward your destination from where ever he/she is. Their distance from, how many pick ups or drop offs they have before they get to you, and federal regulations regarding how often they must stop and how long they are allowed to drive, all affect your pick up time. Not to mention, any traffic issues, bad weather, construction or external issues they may face before they get to you.
Express shipping services are available in some areas to help expedite time sensitive shipments. We encourage you to contact one of our car shipping specialists if you have additional needs. We are always glad to help.
After your vehicle is picked up, you can contact us any time for updates.
Your support staff will give you updates at various times so you know when to anticipate your vehicle's arrival.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO SHIP A CAR?
United Car shipping charges an average of $770 to $1450 for an average-sized car moving within the United States. For vehicles traveling under 200 miles, it can cost an average of $2.50 a mile, with a minimum base charge for picking up. This simply means if you need the car moved 150 miles, you're going to pay a base charge plus the $2.50 a mile. Please note, prices do fluctuate based on time of year and fuel costs.
If you are moving your car over 1,000 miles, you're looking at around 75 cents a mile to ship your car. The price for car transport can vary somewhat based on distance and the specific car in both instances. But for the most accurate quote and our guaranteed pricing, use our shipping quote form to get an accurate quote.
As I stated, the distance of the move, the year, make and model of the car do have the largest effect on the cost to move a car. Expediting the shipment will also increase the cost. Choosing a major city for pick up and delivery can also be a great way to get cheap car shipping by decrease the cost of door-to-door transport. You can also use our car shipping terminals for speed and convenience.
Shipping a car isn’t quite like the shipping a cardboard box with UPS. A car is difficult to ship and must be loaded properly to avoid damage during transport. So do your research and choose United when you want to ship your car. Our attention to safety and detail makes all the difference in getting what you pay for.
