The destination of the car delivery is a big part of the price. If you ship a car to San Antonio, San Diego or Los Angeles, it’s cheaper than St. Louis, for instance. And the type of location where the car’s needed can affect the quote also. Sometimes it takes longer if it’s a route that’s hard to get to. It's easier to book a route to major cities and surrounding zip code compared to rural areas.
Does your vehicle still run? Factors like that are also a part of the price for your auto shipping quote, as well as features such as size, and modifications to your car.

How long does auto transport take to or from San Francisco?

We can sometimes pick up as quickly as 24 hours from the time you call, whereas for standard shipping we’d like at least a week’s notice.
Is it going to a rural area? We can book a carrier, no problem, but sometimes deliveries to towns that are off-the-beaten-path take longer.
Obviously, the greater the distance, the longer it takes for your door to door service. If it’s just going to Lake Tahoe, for instance, drivers cover about 200 miles a day. But if you need nationwide auto shipping to New York, carriers can complete up to 500 miles per day. Visit our FAQ page to get a better idea.
Timing matters too. During certain seasons of the year, there can be delays due to bad weather or seasonal traffic. We do everything we can to keep your delivery on schedule, and best of all, we keep in close touch with you during the shipping process.
