Over 90% of our orders ship inside of one week - anywhere from one to seven days. Thats mostly because about 90% of the U.S. population lives in a major metropolitan area and is shipping to another well populated area. Get outside those parameters and all bets are off as it becomes harder to predict when a driver might be doing that run. Usually though, orders ship in a very regular manner. That said, we cannot guarantee auto shipping pickups or delivery dates. Once assigned, the vehicle usually gets picked up within a day or two (sometimes same day) of the assignment. We automatically email the customer when it gets assigned and then our driver calls your pickup contact. Typically, a coast to coast car shipping trip takes from 7 to 10 days. Shorter auto transport trips can take from 1 to 7 days depending on the distance. The driver usually calls the destination contact within 24 hours of estimated delivery. Traffic, inclement weather, truck breakdowns, seasonal fluctuations and other unforeseen events may delay the auto shipping of your vehicle. Pickup and delivery dates are estimated but are not guaranteed. If either of your origination or destination locations are away from population centers, in other words in a remote area, then you might consider meeting a driver in a nearby big city or town to increase your chances of shipping in a more timely fashion. Remember, anyone you choose can serve as your point of contact or representative, which takes the stress out of shipping your vehicle.
All personal items must be removed from the vehicle before shipping.
Please make sure your vehicle is clean so our drivers can do a complete and accurate inspection. Any dirt and mud can throw the inspection process off and result in inaccuracies.
