Car transport usually takes between 1-6 calendar days from the date a car is picked up to when it’s dropped off.   A driver typically covers about 500 miles per day. The first available pickup date for car shipping is most often 2-7 business days after an order is placed, and express auto transport is frequently available in 24-72 hours.

From Order to Pick-up...

Your pickup window depends on whether you select "open/standard" or "express" shipping.

Standard Shipping pickup date is usually 2-7 business days after your order is placed. Actual pick-up and drop-off dates may have a margin of +/- 1 or 2 days.

Express Shipping offers pickup within 1-3 days and a choice of guaranteed (a) pickup date or (b) drop-off date or (c) shortest possible time-interval between pickup and drop-off. Express not available on all routes.

Then after Pick-up,

the following date-ranges are typical.

Miles

  • 0 – 200
  • 200 – 600
  • 600 – 1000
  • 1000 – 1500
  • 1500 – 2000
  • 2000 – 2400
  • 2400 and up

Calendar Days

  • 1 to 2 days
  • 1 to 3
  • 2 to 3
  • 3 to 5
  • 4 to 7
  • 5 to 8
  • 7 to 9

Of course while the "rule of thumb" above can be helpful, actual times may vary depending on

  • Season
  • Demand
  • Traffic
  • and occasionally even Acts of God.

How many days in advance should car transport be scheduled?

We recommend you call us at least 3-10 days before you need pickup -- but not more than 2 weeks in advance. We look forward to serving you.
