Safe & Reliable Auto Transport
Illinois Car Shipping Services
United's team of professional drivers provide both open and enclosed auto transport services to and from the state of Illinois.
The most frequently asked questions clients have when searching for the best auto transport company in Illinois most commonly about the cost and how the car is moved. We are going to answer those questions in this article.
How Much Does It Cost to Ship My Car To or From Illinois?
The typical price to transport a car within the United States will depend on the type 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 ship a car less than 200 miles, but costs around 75 cents a mile to move a standard vehicle 1,000 miles or more.
Some of the factors we consider are:
• how far the car must travel
• the best time to pickup and deliver your car
• national cost for fuel
• availability and demand for drivers
You can get your free car shipping quote now.
When we give you a quote, it will always be inclusive of all costs required to deliver your auto. Some car trucking companies will quote a low price just to get your autograph on an agreement only to jack up the price later, or worse, when your car is being picked up.
Our bids include all expenses and only change if you make alterations that increase the cost. Internet quote forms can only guesstimate your actual transport costs so it’s always best to speak directly to the car shipping company yourself.
Open and Enclosed Transport
There are multiple types of transport carriers that move our client's vehicles to and from Illinois. We offer both open and enclosed transporters to serve the varied needs of our clients. Below you’ll find a detailed list of the benefits of each.
Open carrier transport simply means moving your car on a truck that does not provide any enclosure to protect it from everyday environmental elements. This is how most vehicles are delivered to car dealerships. It is also the most popular method of transporter on the road and a viable way to transport your vehicle.
There are more open carriers operating on the road than any other type of transporter so that makes open transport the most economical manner to ship your car. Plus we have more open transporters traveling through Illinois at any given 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 car transporters provide the greatest level of protection from weather, elements, rocks or any other threat.
As a bonus, enclosed auto transporters often have more experience with expensive vehicles. The most common cars transported in an enclosed carrier are classic, collectible or antique cars and motorcycles. They also transport:
• vehicles from car auctions
• vintage race cars
• car show transport
• exotic vehicle show transport
• antique and classic cars (like I mentioned above)
The expense of shipping a car on an enclosed carrier is more because there are less enclosed trucks on the road and they can not transport as many cars on their truck as an open transport can.
Motorcycle Shipping From or To Illinois
We do also provide motorcycle and bike shipping across the nation and internationally. We also ship dirt bikes and ATVs door-to-door to almost any location worldwide. Typically motorcycles are transported in an enclosed truck.

No Deposit Required
Some companies will require a deposit prior to your vehicle being picked up. We will not. We work hard to arrange your move and don’t request payment until your transporter is on their way. This ensures you are only charged the total you agreed upon and no tricky scams because we stick to the quote we give you to transport your vehicle.
No matter what you need to move your automobile to/from Illinois, UNITED's auto transport team will provide you with great customer service, and safe, reliable car shipping services no matter where we deliver for you.
Don't make the same mistake that i did...
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!
I booked, they picked up and delivered. Everything went smooth and i have noting but good things to say about this company.
Very happy with the service!
Great experience from the first call to the delivery of my vehicle. I read a lot of reviews before i chose United. I went with them because nobody had anything bad to say about this company.
Customer service – awesome
Price – average
Pickup – everything went smooth and driver did a great job!
Delivery – driver called the day before and gave me a time and he showed up as he said he would.
Totally recommend this company!
These guys did a great job shipping my car from Los Angeles to San francisco. They answered all my questions and were very friendly. The price was right and the driver was really nice and on time for pickup and delivery. Good company that does what they say!
I work at a car dealer in town and we have been using United for quite some time. Over the years we have tried many companies and have been burned over and over. These guys aren’t perfect, but they communicate very well and keep us up to date when issues arise.
I have had them deliver many cars to my customer’s and they always have good things to say about this company. I enjoy working with them and I recommend them to other dealers, friends and family. You can’t go wrong when hiring a company like United to ship your vehicles!
Illinois (/ˌɪlɪˈnɔɪ/ (listen) IL-ih-NOY) is a state in the Midwestern and Great Lakes region of the United States. It has the fifth largest gross domestic product (GDP),
the sixth largest population, and the 25th largest land area of all U.S. states. Illinois is often noted as a microcosm of the entire United States. With Chicago in northeastern Illinois, small industrial cities and immense agricultural productivity in the north and center of the state, and natural resources such as coal, timber, and petroleum in the south, Illinois has a diverse economic base, and is a major transportation hub. Chicagoland, Chicago's metropolitan area, encompasses over 65% of the state's population. The Port of Chicago connects the state to international ports via two main routes: from the Great Lakes, via the Saint Lawrence Seaway, to the Atlantic Ocean and from the Great Lakes to the Mississippi River, via the Illinois Waterway to the Illinois River. The Mississippi River, the Ohio River, and the Wabash River form parts of the boundaries of Illinois. For decades, Chicago's O'Hare International Airport has been ranked as one of the world's busiest airports. Illinois has long had a reputation as a bellwether both in social and cultural terms and, through the 1980s, in politics.
The capital of Illinois is Springfield, which is located in the central part of the state. Although today's Illinois' largest population center is in its northeast, the state's European population grew first in the west as the French settled the vast Mississippi of the Illinois Country of New France. Following the American Revolutionary War, American settlers began arriving from Kentucky in the 1780s via the Ohio River, and the population grew from south to north. In 1818, Illinois achieved statehood. Following increased commercial activity in the Great Lakes after the construction of the Erie Canal, Chicago was founded in the 1830s on the banks of the Chicago River at one of the few natural harbors on the southern section of Lake Michigan.John Deere's invention of the self-scouring steel plow turned Illinois's rich prairie into some of the world's most productive and valuable farmland, attracting immigrant farmers from Germany and Sweden. The Illinois and Michigan Canal (1848) made transportation between the Great Lakes and the Mississippi River valley faster and cheaper, and new railroads carried immigrants to new homes in the country's west and shipped commodity crops to the nation's east. The state became a transportation hub for the nation.
