Default Shipping a car

Who's done it before? Who did you use, how far as it, and how much was it? What was your experience with it?

Internationally or domestic?


I've personally dealt with domestic shipping, but it was no further than 200 miles. I cannot give you a ballpark on prices, because A) volatile fuel prices and B) it was while I worked at a used car dealer (business prices n such).


It wasn't too bad, you just kinda need to know who has the better reputation. There was one, who had a habit of scratching and dinging cars with chains, so I had to keep watch while this certain driver delivered. Sucked when customers arrived.


Sorry I couldn't give more, but I do hope it was helpful.

Just a potential domestic shipment. Thanks for the info.

I had 3 cars shipped from New Jersey to California, using different companies. My advice is take some of digital photos of your vehicle if its possible, before they load it up and keep them until your car is transported. Don't look for the lowest prices, take a look at this website because its better to use repuable shipping company.

My biological father used to ship cars for a living. That alone sort of puts me off the idea because I'm pretty sure he was straight driving them. If I were you I'd look for a lot of reviews before trusting anyone.
