Trying to figure out a way to get your car across country can be a huge hassle. Driving your vehicle to your new residence is a time-consuming option. Not to mention the chance that the vehicle will need maintenance on the way there, forcing you to find somewhere that will fix it right away so you can continue on your trip.
There are a number of options you can utilize to ship your vehicle to your new residence. You can load your vehicle in a moving truck with the rest of your belongings, but this can be costly as moving companies usually charge by weight. Another option is an auto-specific shipper. There are two options in this category: door-to-door or terminal-to-terminal. Door-to-door is the more expensive of the two and is a service where the shipping company picks up the vehicle from your old home and delivers it to your new location. The terminal option is less expensive and involves dropping your vehicle off at the shipping companys dispatch center, the shipper then transports the vehicle to its terminal nearest to your new location where you pick it up.
Most auto shippers will transport your vehicle using a tractor trailer, but you also have the option of either an open-air or enclosed transport. Open-air shipping is less expensive, but your vehicle will be exposed the entire trip. Enclosed auto shipping is more expensive than open-air and is usually used by people who have valuable or classic cars that they want to keep in pristine condition.
