How Long Will It Take To Ship My Car?

The time to move your car to its new location depends on how far it’s going. A typical car shipment takes 3–7 business days from pickup to delivery. Car transport delivery may take longer depending on the weather conditions or traffic patterns.

After you request a quote, a North American moving consultant will provide more details about the timing of loading and delivery for your car transportation. If you have a hard in-hand date, let us know. One of the benefits of choosing us as your auto transport company is that we can guarantee the dates for vehicle pickup and delivery. 

Reasons for Vehicle Shipping vs. Buying New or Driving

Whether you're moving to a new coast or a new country, you may feel tempted to drive your car or purchase a new one once you arrive rather than look into car shipping services. While everyone loves the smell of a brand-new car, this isn't the most cost-effective route you can take. 

There are many reasons to consider a trusted auto transport company like North American Van Lines instead:

Don't Need to Worry About Miles

There’s no need to rack up miles on your existing car. Our car transport services move vehicles exclusively via carrier trucks. Working with an auto transport company instead ensures your odometer stays at zero and your vehicle is safe and secure during the entire journey.

You'll Save Money

Buying a car is an investment. Whether you're buying new or used at your new location, the hefty price tag will put a dent in your wallet—not what you want right after a big move! Choosing our car transport services will help you save money on your entire move.

Changes in Weather

In addition to the hazards of the road, long moves expose you, your vehicle, and your possessions to the whims of nature. However, vehicle shipping allows you to avoid complications caused by rain, snow, or unbearable heat. When you book a car transportation service with North American Van Lines, you don’t need to invest in chains or plan around the weather.

Avoid Unnecessary Wear and Tear

Long-distance and cross-country moves can add thousands of miles to your car. The hours you spend on the road impact the value and life of your vehicle. It can also increase your chances of a fender bender, more monthly maintenance and puts you at risk for accidents.

Protects The Driver

While you may feel like you have what it takes to go the distance, you never know what might happen on the road. Our car transport service offers the peace of mind of knowing your transition will be free of driving-related hassles and your family is safe.

However, you can still help us ensure the auto transportation process is as seamless as possible with a few steps to prepare for your car move

Before your vehicle is picked up, you'll need to:

  • Disable the alarm system
  • Make sure the gas tank is no more than half full
  • Remove all personal items from inside the vehicle
  • Note the vehicle's condition and mileage
  • Remove or secure vehicle accessories

Vehicle not running? We can still move it for you. However, be sure to tell your moving consultant this information at the time of your auto transportation quote so we can plan accordingly.
