Minnesota Auto Transport Services

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

The most frequently asked questions people have when researching the best vehicle shipping company in Minnesota most commonly about price and how it’s done. I’m going to answer those questions now.

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

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

Some of the factors to consider are:

• how many miles the vehicle must travel
• the most acceptable time to pickup and deliver your car
• national cost for diesel
• current demand for transporters

About Your Quote

The quote you get from us will always include all costs required to transport your vehicle. Some vehicle shipping companies will tell you a low price just to get a signature on a contract only to raise the price after you’ve given a deposit, or worse, when it’s being picked up.

Our bids are all-inclusive and only change if you make changes that increase the cost. Online quote forms can only guesstimate your real shipping costs so it’s always best to speak directly to the auto transport company yourself.

Open and Enclosed Carrier Transport

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

Open Transports

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

There are more open carriers on the road than any other type of transporter so that makes them the most economical manner to ship your automobile. This also means we have more open carriers traveling through Minnesota at any given time so pickup times are often more flexible.

Enclosed Auto Transporters

Moving your auto in an enclosed truck gives you the ultimate peace of mind. As the name suggests, enclosed auto transporters provide the highest degree of protection from weather, elements, rocks or any other threat.

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

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

The expense of shipping a vehicle on an enclosed carrier is more because there are fewer enclosed trucks on the road and they can not haul as many cars on their truck as an open transport can.

Motorcycle Shipping To or From Minnesota

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

We work diligently 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 slick tricks because we stick to the quote we provide to move your car.

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!

Minnesota (/ˌmɪnɪˈsoʊtə/ (listen)) is a state in the Upper Midwest and northern regions of the United States. Minnesota was admitted as the 32nd U.S. state on May 11, 1858, created from the eastern half of the Minnesota Territory. The state has a large number of lakes, and is known by the slogan the “Land of 10,000 Lakes”. Its official motto is L’Étoile du Nord (French: Star of the North).

Minnesota is the 12th largest in area and the 22nd most populous of the U.S. states; nearly 60% of its residents live in the Minneapolis–Saint Paul metropolitan area (known as the “Twin Cities”). This area is the center of transportation, business, industry, education, and government, while being home to an internationally known arts community. The remainder of the state consists of western prairies now given over to intensive agriculture; deciduous forests in the southeast, now partially cleared, farmed, and settled; and the less populated North Woods, used for mining, forestry, and recreation.
