South Carolina Car Shipping Services

United’s network of professional auto carriers deliver both open and enclosed car shipping services to and from the great state of South Carolina.

The most popular questions people have when researching the best auto transport company in South Carolina are largely about about how much and how the car is moved. we’ll going to answer those questions now.

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

The standard price to transport a vehicle within the United States will depend on the kind of trailer you favor open or enclosed, how far it’s going, and your pick up and delivery preferences. It costs approximately $2.50 per mile to move a vehicle 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 include:

• how far the auto must be transported
• the most acceptable time to pickup and deliver your vehicle
• current cost for fuel
• supply and demand for transporters

Your Quote

The quote you get from us will always include all expenses required to move your car. Other vehicle trucking companies will bid a low price just to get an autograph on a contract only to raise the price after you’ve given a deposit, or worse, when it’s being picked up.

Our quotes include all expenses and only change if you make changes that increase the cost. Internet quote forms can only guesstimate your actual transport costs so it’s always best to speak directly to the auto shipping company yourself.

Open and Enclosed Transport

There are multiple types of shipping carriers that move our client’s vehicles to and from South Carolina. We offer both open and enclosed carriers to serve the varied needs of our patrons. Below you’ll find a detailed list of the benefits of both.

Open Transports

Open auto transport simply means shipping your auto on a carrier that does not provide any enclosure to protect it from everyday environmental elements. This is the way most cars are transported to car dealerships. It is also the most popular means of transport on the road and a safe way to move your vehicle.

There are more open carriers operating on the road than any other type of carrier so that makes open transport the least expensive way to ship your car. This also means we have more open carriers traveling through South Carolina at any particular time so pickup times are often more flexible.

Enclosed Car Carriers

Moving your car in an enclosed carrier will give 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 possible threat.

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

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

The expense of moving a car on an enclosed carrier is greater because there are less enclosed trucks available and they can not haul as many vehicles on their carrier as an open transport can.

Motorcycle Shipping From or To South Carolina

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

This ensures you are only charged the price you agreed to and no tricky scams because we stick to the quote we provide to ship your car.

No matter what you require to move your vehicle to/from South Carolina, 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!
