But for specific answers regarding transporting a automobile to or from Portland, Oregon, read on.

Our steps to booking the transport of your automobile is very simple. It can be divided into three parts.


What’s the process for transporting my vehicle from Portland, Oregon? Great question. The first thing is to book your move so your dispatch team can start planning the best move for your car.

They do have to take into account the size, weight, height and type of transporter you are needing, which typically are open and closed options.

We will need general details about your vehicle like the VIN number, year, make and model of each auto you are moving. This provides the details we need to properly place your vehicle on a truck.

We will provide you a free transport quote that is all-inclusive of everything required to transport your vehicle from origin to your destination. Our quotes are guaranteed and will not change for any reason unless changes are made to your shipment.


The 2nd step in the process is pick up of the car. In almost all cases, we will pick up at your home in Portland, Oregon and deliver to the specific destination provided when you booked your shipping.

The most common issues that we run into when picking up from a particular place are local regulations on driving a truck into the area. If there are no regulations regarding driving a big rig then we pick up from the destination you gave us when you booked your transport.

Once your transporter arrives, you will do a walk around of the automobile with the driver. You both will sign the Bill of Lading that identifies any existing chips, damage or dents. After you receive a copy of your Bill of Lading, they will load the vehicle, secure it and prepare it for transport from Portland, Oregon. Once it’s loaded on the transporter the driver will start their journey to the next stop.

Because a carrier delivers more than on auto at a time, he/she may have other pick ups and deliveries to make prior to your car arriving at its final destination.


As the time gets closer for your car to arrive, your driver will call you. It is difficult for a driver to know precisely when they will arrive before they get closer to the drop off point because of the many elements that can slow their progress. This includes traffic, weather and federal guidelines regarding rest and how long transporters can actually be on the road.

Normally, you should be contacted by your carrier typically within the last 24 hours before your auto is scheduled to arrive. Although we have made it clear to our drivers we prefer as much advance notice for our clients as possible, we do know sometimes they don’t know when they will get there until just a few hours before they get to their destination.

When the car carrier arrives, you will repeat the same inspection that was completed when the vehicle was picked up. The transporter will have a copy of the Bill of Lading for you to compare existing damage identified during your pick up inspection. You’ll look over the car again to ensure everything is great and then sign the document. The driver will give you a copy for your records.

So transporting your auto to or from Portland, Oregon can be a fairly effortless process. We always strive to ensure to make the entire process pleasant for every client.

Why should I ship my car to Portland, Oregon?

Driving your auto may not be the most practical way to transport your vehicle to another city. It puts miles on your car. Depending on the miles you will move it, there can be a lot of wear and tear — and just imagine if it needs maintenance while you’re on your way.

Unforseen breakdowns can cost much more what it will cost you to have an experienced carrier relocate it for you. Not to mention, the time it adds to your drive.

That’s why we offer easy door-to-door delivery for all our clients.

Whether you’re shipping your car to or from Portland, Oregon, let us help you get it transported safely. We are your reliable auto shipping team and we’re ready to move when you are.

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!

Portland is the largest and most populous city in the U.S. state of Oregon and the seat of Multnomah County. It is a major port in the Willamette Valley region of the Pacific Northwest, at the confluence of the Willamette and Columbia rivers. As of 2017, Portland had an estimated population of 647,805,[9] making it the 26th most populated city in the United States, and the second-most populous in the Pacific Northwest (after Seattle).[10] Approximately 2.4 million people live in the Portland metropolitan statistical area (MSA), making it the 25th most populous MSA in the United States. Its Combined Statistical Area (CSA) ranks 18th-largest with a population of around 3.2 million. Approximately 60% of Oregon's population resides within the Portland metropolitan area.[a]

Named after Portland, Maine,[11] the Oregon settlement began to be populated in the 1830s near the end of the Oregon Trail. Its water access provided convenient transportation of goods, and the timber industry was a major force in the city's early economy. At the turn of the 20th century, the city had a reputation as one of the most dangerous port cities in the world, a hub for organized crime and racketeering. After the city's economy experienced an industrial boom during World War II, its hard-edged reputation began to dissipate. Beginning in the 1960s,[12] Portland became noted for its growing progressive political values, earning it a reputation as a bastion of counterculture.[13]
