How to Choose Car Haulers

Typically, when you think about moving a car from one place to the next, you simply get in and drive it. But if you need long haul car transport or overseas transport, you will probably want to consider other options. There are a variety of options when it comes to auto transport, the best option is dependent or your requirements; cost, delivery time, insurance, and reliability.

Regardless of your needs, the best way to get a variety of quotes quickly is to list your move on Shiply. Trucking companies will compete for your business and all you have to do is sit back and decide.

Multi-Car Carrier

The most popular way to transport a car cross-country is using a car hauler. These can carry up to 10 cars at once. Most shippers will give a time delivery window that ranges from 7 to 21 days. When you talking to the companies, make sure to ask them detailed questions about how your car will be transported. Most shippers will move cars between certain city hubs, unloading and loading the vehicles onto other trucks in order to make the routes more efficient, known as terminal to terminal transport. These companies may offer door to door service for additional costs.

Enclosed Truck

If you are concerned about the effect of weather on your vehicle, you might want to consider using an enclosed truck. Although the cost is higher, it might be worth it if you're transporting in the middle of winter or it is a new high-end vehicle. An enclosed truck will also give you peace of mind regarding unintended damage to your vehicle. You should make sure that there is adequate insurance provided by the shipper in any case.

Professional Driver Service

If you don't mind adding the extra miles onto your vehicle, consider using a driver provided by a professional service. This can be a great option for shorter distances and corporate vehicles as well as for students. You may also be allowed to transport your personal belongings in your vehicle.


Rail transport is typically cheaper than other options as 30+ vehicles can be transported simultaneously. Delivery time can be longer than other methods and quotes are generally only terminal to terminal.

Cargo Container

If you need to ship your vehicle overseas, the main option is via a cargo container. Shipping containers are generally between 20 and 40 feet in length, but different sizes are used.

By listing your move on Shiply, you can get a quote from reliable companies tailored to your needs.
