But for specific answers regarding moving a automobile to or from Richmond, Virginia, read on.

Our procedure to scheduling the transport of your car is streamlined. It can be summed up into three parts.


What’s the process for moving my car from Richmond, Virginia? Great question. The first step is to schedule your move so your dispatch team can start looking the best move for your automobile.

They do have to take into consideration the size, weight, height and type of truck you are requesting, which typically are open and closed trucks.

We will need basic information about your car like the VIN number, year, make and model of each auto you are transporting. This tells us the details we need to properly move your vehicle on a transporter.

We will provide you a free transport quote that includes all the costs required to move your car from pick up to your destination. Our quotes are guaranteed and do not increase for any reason unless there are changes made to your shipment.


The second step in the process is the pick up of the auto. In almost all cases, we do pick up at your location in Richmond, Virginia and deliver to the specific destination we were given when you booked your shipping.

The only issues that we deal with when picking up from a particular place are local restrictions on driving a transporter into the area. If there are no issues regarding driving a transporter then we pick up from the destination you provided when you booked your transport.

Once your transporter arrives, you will do a inspection of the automobile with the driver. You both will sign the Bill of Lading that specifies any existing chips, damage or dings. After you receive a copy of your Bill of Lading, they will load the vehicle, secure it and prepare it for transport from Richmond, Virginia. Once it’s loaded on the transporter the driver will start their journey to the next destination.

Because a transporter delivers more than on vehicle at a time, he/she may have multiple pick ups and deliveries to make before your car arriving at its final destination.


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

Normally, you should hear from your driver 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 customers as possible, we do know sometimes they don’t know when they will arrive until just a few hours before they get to their destination.

When the auto transporter arrives, you will repeat the same inspection that was completed when the car was picked up. The driver will have a copy of the Bill of Lading for you to compare pre-existing dents and dings identified during the pick up inspection. You’ll look over the car again to ensure the car looks good and then sign the document. The driver will give you a copy for your records.

So transporting your auto to or from Richmond, Virginia can be a reasonably effortless process. We always strive to do all we can to make the entire process pleasant for every client.

Why should I ship my car to Richmond, Virginia?

Relocating your auto may not be the wisest way to transport your vehicle to another city. It puts miles on your vehicle. Depending on the distance you will move it, there can be a lot of wear and tear — and imagine if it something breaks while you’re on your way.

Unforseen malfunctions can cost much more what it will cost you to have a professional transporter move it for you. Not to mention, the time it adds to your drive.

That’s why we offer convenient door-to-door delivery for all our customers.

Whether you’re moving your car to or from Richmond, Virginia, let us help you get it transported safely. We are your dependable car 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!
