You just moved your son into the dorms and now realize he actually does need the car to get around. Or maybe you need to get the car delivery to Pasha Hawaii so it can get to Honolulu. Pasha sends containers out of Long Beach, Oakland and the second-largest city in So Cal - San Diego.
Or you just got a great deal on online, but it’s kind of far away, like in North Carolina and it’s on you to get it down to San Diego. Maybe its closer in the San Francisco Bay Area, we pick up in the largest city nationwide.
Whatever the reason, if you need car transport service, you hope the whole process is going to be less painful – and expensive – than it seems.
How much does it cost to ship a car?
Whether your son or daughter’s at San Diego State, UC San Diego or University of San Diego, they’re all expensive these days. You don’t want to compound the burden with an expensive project like car transport service!
Well, you’ve come to the right place. By using us, you get the most competitive pricing because of contacts we’ve acquired from years of working with the most trusted sources in Southern California. That means we’re able to find you the best value in auto shipping services.
There are various factors affecting the price of vehicle shipping. A car delivery going across country to South Carolina, New Hampshire, or New York is, of course, more expensive than if you ship a car to somewhere closer, like San Antonio or New Mexico. And what type of location it’s going to or from has a bearing on the quote as well. Fewer carriers go to the more rural destinations versus major cities or a populous state, so that type of delivery can cost more. In some circumstances, when delivering to residential areas or a metro area, truckers have a tough time fitting in the narrow streets and might ask to meet at a safe and convenient location to deliver your vehicle.
Is your car broken down and no longer works? Sometimes factors like that, the type of vehicle, and whether or not the car has modifications, may change the quote too.
Did you go through every Car and Driver and Motortrend Magazine to find the car of your dreams? Classic car owners know what a great asset a unique collector car can be. You’ll possibly want enclosed car transport, because the types of cars that need added TLC, like a sports car or classic car, should be hauled with limited cargo. Open carriers cost less than enclosed car carriers, because they can load 7-10 cars at a time, while the type of carriers for vehicles of great value tend to have just 2-6 on board.
Our Quick Free Quote system locks in the affordable price for 14 days – guaranteed – while other auto transport companies often limit their guarantee to 7 days. It's no wonder why we're among the best auto transport companies across the contiguous United States! We understand that it's most peoples first time shipping a car, and we're here to help.
How long does auto transport take?
How quickly do you need your vehicle delivered? While we generally schedule pickup in 2-7 days, you can use express auto transport, which may mean a pick-up in 24 hours. If you have specific dates you need it delivered by, it’s the best course of action.
Has another car shipping company flaked and you needed the car last week? Most of our clients call about a week or more in advance, but express service has come in handy for those kinds of circumstances.
Once the job gets underway, there are various details affecting the transfer time. On auto, truck or van transport to a fairly short distance, like Alamo or San Antonio, drivers cover up to 200 miles a day. But when you’re booking nationwide auto transport to South Carolina or New Hampshire, carriers can make it closer to 500 miles per day. We can ship your car from the Pacific Ocean to the to the Atlantic Ocean. Although we don't offer delivery to Hawaii, we work with all the major shipping companies such as Matson or Pasha Hawaii to safely drop off the vehicle at their port so your car will get to Honolulu. Visit our FAQ page to get an idea the length of time required for your California car shipping.
In the case of a heavy equipment, or smaller cargo, like if you want to ship a motorcycle, timing matters. During certain seasons of the year, the vehicle carrier may experience bad weather delays or seasonal traffic.
Unlike using a service such as Uship, we keep in close contact with all our car transport companies. We know enough to steer clear of the most common pitfalls, but when the unexpected arises, we’re right by your side - we make the transport of vehicles easy.

Is open transport right for me – or should I choose enclosed auto transport?
Enclosed transport costs more compared to using an open carrier, but if you’re a car dealer needing luxury car transport, we advise you to go this route. You want that kind of protection for the most valuable types of vehicles, such as Maseratis, Porsches, etc as they travel long distances.
Classic car transport is available too, and again, you probably want to consider an enclosed carrier. They cost more, but they get more attention and protection from the elements, such as hail, snow and sun.
Did you order the car of your dreams after months consulting Car and Driver and Motortrend Magazines? The steeper the value of the vehicle you’re shipping, the more this service makes sense, especially in the case of sports cars or exotic car transport.
Another reason enclosed carriers cost more is that they’re harder to come by. The open vehicle trailers are the ones you often see on the freeway. The closed, protected option is also advised for lightweight types of vehicles, such as golf cart transport to a destination outside the area.
We also do motorcycle shipping and truck transport to and from San Diego.
Finding a transport company for cars in San Diego is one thing, but if you have an unusual vehicle, we can probably hook you up with a carrier for that too – even those that no longer run. Do you need to ship a motorcycle?
Are you a GC with a large work truck you don’t need on the job site anymore? Then you’re probably looking for reliable auto transport with great service to move it to another location. No problem!
Or did you find an SUV in North Carolina and need to get it down to SoCal or Los Angeles? If you need to ship a truck to/from San Diego, or anywhere else in the entire United States, be sure the auto transporter is booked through an experienced dependable auto transport broker, one that’s trusted by others. We also specialize in serving active duty service members in the San Diego area; ask about our military discount.

Am I fully insured on the transport vehicle during auto shipping?
If you’re Swinerton Builders with a backhoe that needs to head to a different job, or if you are the one heading to a different job and you need your car forwarded, you want to be sure that in the event something comes up, you’re insured for it.
Your quote includes insurance, whether you’re a charter bus company or an individual.
The car transporter company carries it for the duration of the job. Though it’s rare, if there’s any sort of damage or a dispute with the carrier, the insurance is in place. It’s available from the time you book the service with the initial phone call, but your credit card isn’t charged until you pick up the vehicle.
Are you moving to a new home in a new state? According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, you cannot store any household items in the vehicle to be shipped. The only items that can remain inside the vehicle are ones pertaining to the actual car. Everything else will need to be removed during coastal car transport.
Most of all, we want you to be 100% satisfied with the professional moving services you choose. We team up with you to achieve the same goal: safe, secure auto shipping to/from the Golden State with excellent customer service.
