Whether you’ve got a corporate move or you’ve found your dream car and simply need it shipped to you from a dealership, your luxury car transport service has to be both dependable, as well as knowledgeable about your vehicle make and model. We get it – and whether you’re shipping a luxury vehicle you currently own are researching luxury car guides, we understand both your needs and your values.
How much does it cost to ship a luxury car?
Luxury car shipping costs ~$1 per mile for 1-500 miles. So, a 350 mile trip would cost $350. The longer the distance, the lower the price: to transport a luxury car ~1000 miles drops it to $.75 cents a mile, or $750. Coast-to-coast luxury transport can be as little as $.40 cents per mile. Using an enclosed carrier costs 40-60% more than an open carrier, and express luxury car transport is an additional option as well. Luxury car transport quotes vary based on your vehicle size, whether you choose enclosed car transport or express shipping, seasonality, as well as proximity to major highways.
“I finally had the chance to upgrade to a luxury SUV. Got a great deal on a pre-owned Mercedes GL 450, but it was in Philadelphia. When I started to look for a car carrier, I was dismayed at the cost ... but the transport manager helped me understand all the factors that go into it, including size, weight and the fact that I needed it before Christmas. I came to understand it would cost less after the holidays, but I couldn’t wait. I checked 4 other transport places, and was surprised to see Easy Car Shipping was actually a good value. You get what you pay for, and I’m happy with what they delivered.” Alexandra Mastrovich, 2014 Mercedes GL 450, Philadelphia, PA to Laguna Beach, CA
We stand by the quotes generated by our real-time Quick Quote system, for a full 14 days – that’s twice the industry norm, even if prices go up in the meantime. Our pricing is fully transparent, and there are no hidden fees. We’ve built a reputation for delivering what we promise.
Of course, when you’re shipping a brand-new Lexus, BMW, Mercedes and the like – or moving a classic car such as a Bentley, Rolls Royce or Lambo – price is often eclipsed by the requirement for total QUALITY assurance. Whether you're moving a classic car or exotic car, it's always protected with our insurance coverage. Our claims rate is less than 1 in 1,200 transports: just 0.08%. That means 99.92% of all our shipments arrive without an incident (compared with one leading auto transport service that touts a 95% delivery-without-damage record as if that were admirable). When you provide first-class car transport as we do, reliability is a sine qua non.
How long does it take to ship a luxury car?
Luxury car delivery takes between 1-6 calendar days from the date a car is picked up to when it’s dropped off. A driver usually covers about 500 miles per day. The first available pickup date for luxury auto transport is typically 2-7 business days after an order is placed, and express service is usually available within 24-72 hours. Express luxury car shipping guarantees either an exact pickup date or a precise drop-off date, whichever is more important to you, and is available with a 30% premium over baseline costs.
“I have a business owner who’s used to getting his way – pronto – who got a car for his mother in Orlando. He was a repeat buyer and the car needed to arrive for Mom’s 60th birthday. Unfortunately, his timing was extra bad, because the car was not ready to be transported until the last minute. Easy Car Shipping is one of our top transport partners, and they are so accommodating – but even so, I felt bad pressing them for such a tight turn-around. The transport manager was cool under pressure and made sure the enclosed carrier they selected had a spotless reputation to minimize risk with this high-end client. Great service, as usual.” Anthony Riccio, Charles Barker Lexus Virginia Beach, 2016 Lexus LS460, Virginia Beach, VA to Orlando FL
The majority of our luxury car transports originate from new car dealerships, and travel less than 1,000 miles across state lines. This means you’ll likely have your vehicle delivered in 2-4 days, once it’s loaded. Dealers often make arrangements on behalf of customers, but sometimes a customer may find a better option online: either by searching for best luxury auto transport companies, or trying to optimize price or timeline on their own. Our handy chart can be a useful guide.
Should I consider enclosed luxury car shipping?
About 65% of customers choose to ship luxury cars on an open-air carrier, and are perfectly satisfied with the results. The other 35% choose enclosed luxury car transport either because their vehicle is currently valued at more than $70,000 (which is our threshold for recommending covered car transport), or they need white-glove-level service to impress a buyer – or occasionally, the recipient of a gift. When transporting most classic cars and exotic cars we recommend using an enclosed trailer. If your situation requires the vehicle to arrive in the same pristine condition as it left, if you can’t risk the elements or even dust or dirt that might occur if the carrier drives through some weather, then transporting your luxury car enclosed would offer more peace of mind.
For instance, if you’re shipping a Ferrari with a 6-figure Kelly Blue Book value, you probably don’t want it stacked on top of an open carrier. Especially if it’s going through the mountains in winter or the desert in summer. An enclosed truck has fewer slots, typically just 2-6 per transporter, which further increases the attention to detail and fosters even greater individualized service.

“I took a job at Humana in Louisville, and my wife was going ahead to set up the house, before I could wrap up my old job. She needed it there ASAP and Easy Car Shipping was very accommodating with finding a carrier quickly and delivering it 2 days earlier than my deadline. They could not get into the gated community, but the driver kindly drove it up to the house and walked back which meant a lot to Kelley. It was good to hear my wife was happy.” Allen Stryker, 2015 BMW 750Li, San Francisco, CA to Louisville, KY
