Idaho Car Shipping Services

United’s team of skilled auto carriers deliver both open and enclosed car shipping services to and from the state of Idaho.

The most popular questions clients have when looking for the best vehicle transport company in Idaho are largely about about how much and how the car is moved. I’m going to answer those questions in this article.

How Much Does It Cost to Ship My Car To or From Idaho?

The typical price to ship a vehicle within the United States will depend on what kind of trailer you favor enclosed or open, how far it’s going, and your pick up and delivery preferences. It costs approximately $2.50 per mile to move a vehicle less than 200 miles, however costs around 75 cents a mile to move a standard automobile 1,000 miles or more. 

Some of the factors we consider are:

• how far the car must be transported
• the best time to pickup and deliver your auto
• national cost for diesel
• current demand for drivers

Your Quote

Your quote will always be inclusive of all costs required to move your auto. Some vehicle shipping companies will bid a low-ball price just to get a signature on an agreement only to increase the price after you’ve given a deposit, or worse, when your car is being picked up.

Our bids include all expenses and only change if you make alterations that affect the cost. Online quote forms can only guesstimate your actual transport costs so it’s always best to speak directly to the auto shipping company yourself.

Open and Enclosed Carrier Transport

There are several types of shipping carriers that move our client’s vehicles to and from Idaho. We offer both open and enclosed carriers to serve the varied needs of our clients. Below you’ll find a detailed list of the benefits of both.

Open Carrier

Open auto transport simply means moving your car on a carrier that doesn’t provide any enclosure to shield it from everyday environmental elements. This is how most cars are transported to car dealerships. It is also the most common type of transport on the road and a safe way to ship your vehicle.

There are more open carriers on the road than any other type of carrier so that makes open transport the least expensive manner to transport your vehicle. This also means we have more open carriers traveling through Idaho at any particular time so pickup times are often more flexible.

Enclosed Car Transporters

Moving your car in an enclosed truck will give you the ultimate confidence. As the name suggests, enclosed auto carriers provide the greatest level of protection from weather, elements, rocks or any other possible threat.

As a bonus, enclosed auto carriers typically have more experience with high end vehicles. The most common vehicles moved in an enclosed carrier are classic, collectible or antique cars and motorcycles. They also transport:

• vehicles from auto auctions
• vintage race cars
• car show transport
• exotic auto show transport
• antique and classic cars (like I mentioned above)

The cost of shipping a vehicle on an enclosed carrier is more because there are fewer enclosed trucks available and they can not transport as many vehicles on their carrier as an open carrier can.

Motorcycle Shipping To or From Idaho

Motorcycle Shipping by UnitedWe do also offer bike and motorcycle shipping across the United States and internationally. We also ship ATVs and dirt bikes door-to-door to almost any destination worldwide. Typically motorcycles are transported in an enclosed carrier.

No Deposit Required

Some competitors will require a down payment prior to your vehicle being picked up. We do not. We work hard to arrange your transport and don’t request payment until your transporter is on their way. This ensures you are only charged the price you agreed to and no tricky scams because we stick to the quote we give you to move your car.

No matter what you need to move your car to/from Idaho, UNITED’s auto transport team will provide you with great customer service, and safe, reliable auto transport services no matter where we deliver for you.

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!

Idaho (/ˈaɪdəhoʊ/ (listen)) is a state in the northwestern region of the United States. It borders the state of Montana to the east and northeast, Wyoming to the east, Nevada and Utah to the south, and Washington and Oregon to the west. To the north, it shares a small portion of the Canadian border with the province of British Columbia. With a population of approximately 1.7 million and an area of 83,569 square miles (216,440 km2), Idaho is the 14th largest, the 12th least populous and the 7th least densely populated of the 50 U.S. states. The state’s capital and largest city is Boise.

Idaho prior to European settlement was inhabited by Native American peoples, some of whom still live in the area. In the early 19th century, Idaho was considered part of the Oregon Country, an area disputed between the U.S. and the United Kingdom. It officially became U.S. territory with the signing of the Oregon Treaty of 1846, but a separate Idaho Territory was not organized until 1863, instead being included for periods in Oregon Territory and Washington Territory. Idaho was eventually admitted to the Union on July 3, 1890, becoming the 43rd state.
