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.

The estimated was very detailed & quite reasonable. The movers were early and worked speedy while making sure to protect our 5 month old furniture. They were very professional and courteous, it was a pleasure working with all of them.
Used them a couple of times for local moves...Highly recommend...Staff is attentive and goes extra mile to make your move your way! Thanks to our crew today especially!
Very quick, professional movers. We used a color code system to organize our rooms and they were quick on the uptake. They took apart and put back together any furniture that couldn’t get through doorways, and they wrapped anything that was cloth. A smooth move overall.
I can't really say enough about Daniil and his team. A hard working group of guys who bust their tails to get the job done quickly. The price is incredible reasonable. By far the most efficient and economic friendly moving business out there. Second to none!
Thanks so much to the team who helped with our local move! Fast and efficient and everything made it where it needed to, safe and sound. Highly recommend!
They were on time. We’re very careful with my stuff and made sure they did not touch my walls when moving our large items (couch, bed etc). Very polite and hardworking.
Couldn't have asked for a better moving experience. Very professional movers with zero time wasted. Fast, efficient, and also careful with our belongings.
Mike was extremely helpful and gracious to accommodate our request on short notice. The team that took care of our move and storage process were really great and professional. I cannot say enough good things about them. Really happy with the service from management on down to the actual movers.
I had good experience. They were very punctual, quick in responding and informative. They also helped us with transport of our vehicles. They took good care of our furniture while assembling and fragile items. Amazing experience and quick delivery at the new place. I highly recommend MyProMovers!
With every change they were super accommodating and professional every time. I highly recommend you work with them, had a great experience with them the past several weeks with even just communication, flexibility, and professionalism. Y’all are the best, thanks so much.
It was a long day with some very large pieces that were difficult to move including a piano, but the crew worked hard and professionally all the way through it until it was done. All of the crew was very friendly and courteous. Reasonable rates for the large job that it was.
Very good service! All the guys were extremely professional and were at our place 30 minutes before their scheduled time. I was not at my place at that time and they were willing to wait. They took extreme care moving all the stuff. Highly recommended!
MyProMovers helped move the Professional Fighters League office from Washington DC to New York and we couldn't have been happier with the service they provided. They were extremely accommodating, thank you MyProMovers we will definitely be coming to you for all of our future moving needs!
