Car transport, or vehicle transport, is the service of moving cars from one destination to another. MyProMovers works with only the best auto-freight companies to provide the best-in-class customer service and convenient perks like door-to-door pickup and delivery, fast turnaround times and affordable car shipping quotes.
The most cost-effective way to ship a car is via open transport, which is how most of our customers ship their autos. These car trailers are open, which are much like the ones you can often see on the road. If the car you're shipping is your daily-driver, open shipping is the way to go. If you're moving a classic, vintage or restored vehicle you will likely opt for enclosed transport, which protects your vehicle from the elements during its journey to your new home. Generally, enclosed transport is about 50% to twice as expensive as open transport. We usually recommend open transport to our customers to help save you money on your next long distance move.
Seasonality is a big factor in car shipping pricing. Generally, the cost increases in the Winter as the snowbirds make their way down South for the colder months. Costs can also increase in the Summer months as demand creeps back up and many people take the opportunity to move in good weather. Off-peak moving can save you hundreds if you time it right, and book your car move as early as possible.
Car shipping costs around $1.96/mile for short distances, less than 500 miles, or at least $600 for a 300-mile trip. Medium distances can run about $0.93/mile (500-1500 miles) or just under $950 for 1,000 miles. Long distances, greater than 1500 miles can be around $0.60/mile. There are many factors that go into the cost to ship your car, such as the current demand for shippers and the distance and route your car must travel. The make, model and condition of your car are also factored in.
The majority of vehicles will be picked up within 1-5 business days of your first available date. Your vehicle will be taken on a shared freight carrier, and our car shipping partners need this time to schedule your pickup along with the other cars on your route.
You pay nothing today or when you lock in your price. Once we schedule and dispatch a carrier to your home, we provide you with the estimated delivery dates and charge a small down payment on your credit card. The remaining balance is paid to your driver on delivery via credit card or certified funds.
You are allowed up to 100 pounds of personal belongings in the storage area of your automobile. The front cab and other parts of your vehicle should be empty. Our freight carriers do not have license or insurance to ship household goods across state lines.
The Department of Transportation's Motor Carrier Division requires insurance for all carries shipping vehicles. Your car carrier will have a minimum of $250,000 cargo and $750,000 in general liability insurance coverage. On pickup, your drive will note every ding scratch and dent on your automobile and take pictures. Upon delivery, these notes will be presented and any new dings, dents or scratches should be annotated on that form upon delivery, which is to be signed by both parties.

I would highly recommend MyProMovers. They made the entire process easy from start to finish. The actual team that did our move was professional and careful with our furniture. If you're looking for a mover who does a great job and who you can trust, call MyProMovers! Thank you, MPM Team.
Edwin and Santi were our movers and they were wonderful. They both wore masks the entire time and were helpful with a tough move that required organizing the truck in a certain way. All around made moving in the pandemic a little bit easier.
MyProMovers moved my hot tub on short notice. Everything went off without a hitch.
ProMovers moved me to my new apartment. They were extremely professional and on time. They took great care with some family heirlooms and made sure everything was done exactly as I wanted. I would definitely use them again.
My Pro Movers were extremely responsive. On the day our move, our movers arrived on time and got right to work. They were really efficient and made sure to wrap all of our furniture to protect them from damage. They were nice and very courteous. The entire move was as painless as it could be.
MyProMovers provided me with everything I needed for an easy and hassle-free move! They were organized, prompt, and super friendly. Their prices were very reasonable, they provided all materials I needed and took care of everything! I would highly recommend to anyway planning a move.
The two scheduled movers, John and Patrick, arrived on time today and really did an awesome job. They were fast, polite, and extremely capable. I'm a selective consumer, and MyProMovers is a name I shall easily recommend to others. Thanks, MyProMovers, for everything!
They did amazing. Price competitive with the top tier of quality movers in the NOVA area but yet quality of the best having seen a number of movers in my day. They moved 40 boxes and many were "glass fragile". Great communication, if you had these two, you can move anything!
Good communication, skilled workers. Overall great experience
These guys were very professional. I would recommend them to anyone needing movers.
