Michigan Car Shipping Services

United’s team of highly qualified drivers deliver both open and enclosed auto transport services to and from the state of Michigan.

The most popular questions customers have when researching the best vehicle shipping company in Michigan are largely about about how much and how it’s done. I’m going to answer those questions right now.

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

The standard price to move a automobile within the United States will be dependent 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 car less than 200 miles, but costs around 75 cents a mile to ship a standard automobile 1,000 miles or more. 

Some of the factors to consider are:

• the distance the vehicle must go
• the best time to pickup and deliver your auto
• current cost for diesel
• current demand for drivers

About Your Quote

Your quote will always include all costs required to deliver your car. Other vehicle shipping companies will bid a low price just to get your signature on a contract only to increase the price after you’ve given a deposit, or worse, when your car is being picked up.

Our quotes include all expenses and only change if you make changes that affect the cost. Internet quote forms can only guesstimate your real transport costs so it’s always best to call the car transport company yourself.

Open and Enclosed Transport

There are multiple types of shipping carriers that move our client’s vehicles to and from Michigan. We offer both open and enclosed carriers to serve the many 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 auto on a truck that does not 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 viable way to move your vehicle.

There are more open carriers available than any other type of transporter so that makes open transport the cheapest manner to move your automobile. Plus we have more open carriers traveling through Michigan at any given time so pickup times are often more flexible.

Enclosed Car Transporters

Moving your auto in an enclosed truck will give you the ultimate peace of mind. 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 often have more experience with high end vehicles. The most common cars shipped in an enclosed carrier are collectible, classic or antique motorcycles and cars. They also transport:

• autos from car auctions
• classic race cars
• car show transport
• exotic auto show transport
• antique and classic cars (as I mentioned above)

The cost of shipping a car on an enclosed truck is greater because there are less enclosed trucks available and they can not transport as many autos on their carrier as an open transport can.

Motorcycle Shipping To or From Michigan

Motorcycle Shipping by UnitedWe do also offer bike and motorcycle shipping across the county and internationally. We also ship ATVs and dirt bikes door-to-door to almost any location worldwide. Normally motorcycles are transported in an enclosed transporter.

No Deposit Required

Some competitors will require a down payment prior to your car being picked up. We will 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 upon and no tricky scams because we stick to the quote we provide to move your car.

No matter what you need to move your automobile to/from Michigan, UNITED’s auto transport team will provide you with great 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!

Michigan (/ˈmɪʃɪɡən/ (listen)) is a state in the Great Lakes and Midwestern regions of the United States. The state’s name, Michigan, originates from the Ojibwe word mishigamaa, meaning “large water” or “large lake”.[3][6] With a population of about 10 million, Michigan is the tenth most populous of the 50 United States, with the 11th most extensive total area, and is the largest state by total area east of the Mississippi River.[b] Its capital is Lansing, and its largest city is Detroit. Metro Detroit is among the nation’s most populous and largest metropolitan economies.

Michigan is the only state to consist of two peninsulas. The Lower Peninsula is often noted as shaped like a mitten. The Upper Peninsula (often called “the U.P.”) is separated from the Lower Peninsula by the Straits of Mackinac, a five-mile (8 km) channel that joins Lake Huron to Lake Michigan. The Mackinac Bridge connects the peninsulas. The state has the longest freshwater coastline of any political subdivision in the world, being bounded by four of the five Great Lakes, plus Lake Saint Clair.[7] As a result, it is one of the leading U.S. states for recreational boating.[8] Michigan also has 64,980 inland lakes and ponds.[9] A person in the state is never more than six miles (9.7 km) from a natural water source or more than 85 miles (137 km) from a Great Lakes shoreline.[10]
