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.

They did a fantastic job helping us to move! The manager was very flexible with us not having a firm date! The driver called us when they were 15 minutes away! They were polite, professional and very careful with our stuff! They also had a great harmony as a team. We highly recommend them!!!
Fantastic experience top to bottom and a square price too. Couldn't be more pleased with how professional the team was. Moving is never fun but it went fast and smooth.
Really happy that we used MyProMovers. My wife and I were trying to find an affordable moving company to move to our new apartment a few blocks down the street.
Thought My Pro Movers did a great job- responsive/good communication throughout the process, made the move itself easy (and going from DC to Richmond this was a relief for me), and the quote aligned with what I ultimately paid so there was good value there too.
Wonderful gentlemen and their work was amazing! They took care of all my furniture from start to finish! Well done!
The service was on time, efficient and clean. I underestimated the time needed but the guys moved everything as fast as they can. Recommend.
Nick was very professional, helpful and kind during a difficult move that I had to coordinate for a family member. Thank you so much for being exactly what I was looking for in a moving company.
Excellent service! They arrived on time and were fast, efficient, and extremely careful in moving my large items. I plan on using them in the future!
This was one of the best moves I’ve experienced in a very long time. Ilia and Navruz, the movers, were the consummate professionals and did an excellent job. They set me at ease and I never worried about damage or loss . All in all a well managed, well executed great experience!
MyPro Movers is a Very professional company and super easy to deal with. They are priced affordably and the staff are helpful and respectful. The moving crew was on time and treated each piece of furniture as if it was their own. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a moving company. If we have another move, I will definitely use them again.
These guys were incredible. Professional from the minute they walked in. Took great care of my stuff and my old and new apartment. They took apart and put back together furniture, took all the "knick knacks" I asked that weren't even boxed. Couldn't have asked for a better experience!
Recently had mypromovers relocate a very heavy and sensitive piece of equipment from one house to another. Removing it was incredibly difficult but they pulled off quickly and professionally. Highly recommended!!!
My Pro Movers were very responsible to all my needs. They arrived on time and was very gentle with my items. Hopefully this will be my last move. I plan on recommending them to several of my friends that plan on moving, the first of next year. Thanks again for all your help and your support.
