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

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

Some of the things we consider include:

Your Quote

The quote you get from us will always include all costs required to transport your auto. 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 bids are final and only change if you make alterations that affect the cost. Online quote forms can only estimate your actual transport costs so it’s always best to call the auto shipping company yourself.

Open and Enclosed Transport

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

Open Carrier

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

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

Enclosed Auto Carriers

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

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

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

The expense of moving a car on an enclosed carrier is greater because there are fewer enclosed trucks on the road and they can not transport as many autos on their truck as an open transport can.

Motorcycle Shipping To or From Virginia

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

This ensures you are only charged the total you agreed to and no slick tricks because we stick to the quote we give you to transport 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!

Virginia (/vərˈdʒɪniə/ (listen)), officially the Commonwealth of Virginia, is a state in the Southeastern[5] and Mid-Atlantic[6] regions of the United States located between the Atlantic Coast and the Appalachian Mountains. Virginia is nicknamed the “Old Dominion” due to its status as the first English colonial possession established in mainland North America[7] and “Mother of Presidents” because eight U.S. presidents were born there, more than any other state. The geography and climate of the Commonwealth are shaped by the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Chesapeake Bay, which provide habitat for much of its flora and fauna. The capital of the Commonwealth is Richmond; Virginia Beach is the most populous city, and Fairfax County is the most populous political subdivision. The Commonwealth’s estimated population as of 2018[update] is over 8.5 million.[8]

The area’s history begins with several indigenous groups, including the Powhatan. In 1607 the London Company established the Colony of Virginia as the first permanent New World English colony. Slave labor and the land acquired from displaced Native American tribes each played a significant role in the colony’s early politics and plantation economy. Virginia was one of the 13 Colonies in the American Revolution. In the American Civil War, Virginia’s Secession Convention resolved to join the Confederacy, and Virginia’s First Wheeling Convention resolved to remain in the Union; that led to the creation of West Virginia. Although the Commonwealth was under one-party rule for nearly a century following Reconstruction, both major national parties are competitive in modern Virginia.[9]
