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. Your moving consultant will give you an auto quote with more specific details about the timing of loading and delivery. One of the many benefits of moving your vehicle with northAmerican 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 trustedauto transportation company like North American Van Lines instead:
