Need to deliver a shiny new car for a stand-out customer, on a very specific date? Or sending a show-stopping gift for a special occasion? You need an express car shipping company you can trust. So if you’ve got a client who needs a guarantee − or you need extra-speedy delivery to make up for unexpected prior lags now − express auto shipping can increase the chances for great outcomes all around. 

Perhaps you’re moving: you planned your car transport well in advance, but other guys flaked out and now you’re in a jam. Or maybe your need to move a car came up at the last minute. Whatever the case − if you need it picked up fast, or on a specific pick-up date to stay on schedule, then expedited car transport can save your bacon.

When is express auto transport better than standard shipping?

Delivery man dropping off an expedited car transportThere are 3 elements that determine whether express car shipping is right for you:

1. You need Pick-up very soon . . . or guaranteed on or by an exact date.

2. You need the Time-Interval between pick-up and drop-off to be as short as possible. For example, a standard cross-country delivery might average 7-10 days, given other vehicles that must be picked up or dropped off along the way. But if you need your vehicle to arrive a couple of days sooner than average, we can make that happen with express shipping.

3. You need Drop-off guaranteed on or by an exact date, so you receive it in time.

Any one of these 3 factors might trigger a need for express vehicle transport, and you’ll definitely want the special handling that only expedited auto shipping can offer. We’ll assign a dedicated Transport Coordinator who will tailor a schedule to your specific needs.

“My brother and I decided to surprise our parents at their 40th anniversary party with a new car. Unfortunately, it took us longer to agree on the specifics and to nail down the details with the dealer than we planned – so now I was in a time crunch. Our transport agent understood our needs and worked efficiently to get the car there before the party. I had just enough time to get the car washed, and get someone to tie a bow on it like on TV. Given the short notice, Gary and I were quite pleased with how it went.” Kristi McNally, 2016 GMC Yukon Denali, Plano Texas to Boise Idaho

What guarantee can I expect when I choose express car shipping?

We guarantee you’ll have the vehicle picked up, or dropped off, on whichever date you choose – or we will refund the difference in cost vs. standard shipping PLUS give you an additional $100 refund out of our own pocket. This means we have a lot of skin in the game, since we pay the driver a premium for express service even in the unlikely event he misses our commitment to you by even just 1 day. 

• Sometimes, car transport involves variables beyond our control − including traffic, weather, delays resulting from other customers, or sometimes even an unexpected maintenance issue. While no transport company in the world can guarantee all 3 elements simultaneously (i.e., a locked-in Pick-up Date + locked-in Drop-off Date + shortest Time-Interval), our guarantee relates to whichever one of these elements is most important to you.

Enclosed transport for bad weatherIn any rare case that we are ever unable to fulfill a commitment we made regarding Express Auto Transport, here’s an illustration of how our guarantee works. Let’s say we offer a quote for standard shipping at $800, with a 30% premium (an additional $240) for the express option = a total of $1,040. If we or the driver were unable to fulfill that commitment, Easy Car Shipping would refund the $240 premium for the express portion + a $100 as our apology, for a total $340 price reduction. That means you would receive the vehicle shipment at a net cost of just $700 to you (lower than even our standard shipping rate, and probably still faster than if we had not attempted expedited car shipping at all).

No fuzzy math here. We stand behind our word, even when it hurts. We know of no other express transport company for cars that offers this type of financial guarantee.

Please note that express shipping may not be available on all routes, especially in rural locations. Seasonal demands may also affect availability. But once your Transport Coordinator confirms it’s available and your order is dispatched, you can count on us.

Express Shipping to a cityHow much does expedited car shipping cost?

Express service typically adds 30% to the cost (about $200-$300 on an “average” order) vs. standard shipping. That’s true whether you choose to transport your vehicle on an open-trailer, or within a fully-enclosed one. The additional cost stems from the extra effort required by both the office-team and our drivers to rearrange other customers’ pick-up or drop-off schedules, delay or rebook other clients who may have more flexible situations and who don’t mind accommodating your specific needs.

There may also be additional driving hours or fuel costs involved, as express transport usually requires arranging for a pick-up or drop-off that is less efficient on a google-map basis − but which we gladly make for you as an express vehicle shipping client − to deliver when you have unique constraints. Rest assured that the Express Auto Transport Quote we provide is all-inclusive: there are no taxes, fuel surcharges or hidden fees. We are totally transparent.

How long does it take to ship a car express?

In most cases, Express Vehicle Shipping can reduce lead-time for Pick-up from an average of 5-7 business days to as little as 1-2 business days from the time of your call or online booking. Just as often, express car delivery is used by our clients to obtain a guaranteed Drop-off date: for example, by customers who are flexible on their Pick-up date, but who must ensure the vehicle doesn’t get there before or after some specific day. Let’s say there’ll be no one at your end to take responsibility for the vehicle’s arrival before “x” date − or the car must be on-hand as a gift, and if it does not arrive by “y” date, someone will be disappointed . . . or worse. That’s when our guarantee comes in handy. Woman accepting vehicle delivery

On long-haul trips, express truck or car delivery can even help compress the elapsed Time-Interval between Pick-up and Drop-off, for those who need to make up time for some other reason. You tell us which feature is most important to you, and we’ll tailor outcomes to meet your goals.

“We got in a lurch, and Easy Car Shipping saved us. We spend our winters in Clearwater each year, and typically use the same transport company to Florida and home again. But this past spring DAS really let me down. They promised they’d pick up our car before we fly out – but 48 hours before our departure DAS had not scheduled a driver to pick up our vehicle. I was in a frenzy and called around to a couple of other top-rated companies. Easy Car Shipping answered on the weekend with a live operator and booked a transport for Monday morning.” Gene Fennison, 2011 Nissan Maxima, Tampa FL to Cleveland OH

Why choose Easy Car Shipping for express auto transport?

Our 4.8 average star-rating from express clients speaks for itself. Whether you’re a dealer, exporter, online buyer or seller, a corporate relo veteran, or you’re simply making a one-time move, when you choose our express car delivery option we assign a dedicated Transport Coordinator who is consistently on hand to answer your questions and coordinate all the details: from the point your order is booked until you receive your satisfaction survey. In addition, a large percent of our teammates are trained vehicle experts, not just desk jockeys. This helps avoid surprises, especially when you’re shipping a luxury vehicle, a classic or exotic one, or a unit with unusual dimensions: whether extra tall, super-skinny, long-bed extended crew cab, or super-weight.

"Another good save! Our customer wanted this specific model in a specific color and instead of waiting 10 weeks to receive a new order, we thought it best to purchase this from another Lexus dealership. We found the car in Georgia, but it had to be delivered in 3 days in order to close the deal. Easy Car Shipping had a carrier in the Atlanta area and was able to pick up within just a few hours after we booked the order. Came thru for us again, as always.” Joseph Musco, 2016 Lexus RX350, Alpharetta, GA to San Antonio, TX

When is the enclosed express auto shipping combo worth it? 

If the vehicle is currently worth more than $70,000 and you have timing constraints, enclosed auto transport is definitely something to consider in addition to the express option. You’ll see that price-point option in the bottom-right section of your Quick Quotes.

Do you need express motorcycle shipping, or express golf cart transport? We offer that as well. Whether you choose to ship those fully enclosed to provide extra protection from the elements and wind-shear, or on an open carrier as most people do, our express vehicle transport program makes your full satisfaction our top priority.
