Working at a dealership can put a lot of demands on your time, energy and resources. Customers have high expectations, you have targets to meet, and you want everyone to have the best experience – so you continue to get great reviews and referrals. When you have a customer who needs delivery, or one who wants to buy a specific model in a particular color, with a unique options package – one that’s not in your inventory and could take weeks from the factory , but happens to be available at a dealership in another state – you want dealer auto shipping without any mishaps.
We understand Dealer car transport needs and values
Ever worked with dealership transporters who didn’t come through for you? We hear you – and we know what a tight bind it puts you in, when you’ve promised a delivery that’s at risk of not arriving on the date your customer expects. If someone’s dropped the ball, we can probably run with it, and work with you to save the day.
Or perhaps you’re growing, and you need to add another reliable transport company for dealerships to your roster for peak seasons, or in areas you may not currently have enough coverage. If you have a recurring need to ship cars to other states or across the country, it’s vital to have access to a large network with thousands of carriers. We carefully screen to select the cream of the crop − particularly for our new-car-dealer partners. Our selected carriers are skilled pros, expert at loading vehicles on and off efficiently to minimize jockeying along the way – something that’s especially important with brand-new cars and high-end vehicle transports.
We relate to Customers’ dealer transport requirements
As a customer, when you find the car of your dreams, it may not be at your local dealer. Perhaps you saw it online or in other state -- and sometimes it’s up to you to ship your car from the dealership. Or maybe you’ve simply decided to check out dealer auto transport quotes yourself, and see if direct or online car shipping is a better option. Here are some factors to consider – especially if you’re shipping a luxury vehicle or you need exotic car transport. First, dealership car transport reviews are vital. How large is the company, and what is their claims rate? We see some car transporters touting a claims rate of “less than 5%”, which in our view is laughably high. Ours is less than 1 in 1,200 transports. That’s an incident rate of less than 0.08%, which means 99.92% of our direct and dealership car deliveries arrive without any kind of issue related to the condition of the vehicle.
Second, the availability of an instant, online dealer shipping quote is important – without the hassle of sharing your name or phone number – because who wants any pesky sales followup calls?! (We hate those too – and we never call unless you ask ... or after you book your order.) We do invite you to share just your email, so we can send you a copy of the instant quote you’ll see on your screen. Then, if you want to book later, you can refer back to the rates you saw. We guarantee car transport quotes for up to 14 days: twice the industry norm. Third, we know good value is key: that optimal balance between a competitive price and reliable service.
How much does it cost to ship a car from a dealership?
Dealer car transport costs ~$1 per mile for 1-500 miles. So, a 350 mile trip would cost $350. The longer the distance, the lower the price: moving a car ~1000 miles drops it to $.75 cents a mile, or $750. Coast-to-coast dealer car shipping can be as little as $.40 cents per mile.
Dealer shipping fees can vary based on vehicle size/weight, location, time of year, and whether you choose an option such as express shipping, an additional 30%. Open transport, on those large 7-10-car carriers you see on the roads, works well for 80% of car buyers -- whether shipping a brand-new or pre-owned vehicle. But enclosed car shipping is strongly recommended for anything worth >$70,000. Enclosed trucks carry just 2-6 vehicles, so transport costs 40-60% more but the additional peace of mind is worth it for most customers in that situation. Of course, when shipping a new Porsche, a Bentley, Bugatti or other ultra-high-end car, it’s the only way to go. A Specialist in our Dealer Car Delivery Department can answer questions about white-glove car transport.
When it comes to the cost for a dealer to ship a car – whether you’re the customer or the dealer rep – nobody likes a price that’s higher than it should be. And if you just made a sizable purchase, you certainly don’t want to break the bank. You deserve the best value, whether you’re transporting a pre-owned Toyota, a brand new Lexus or a leased Maserati, and that’s just what you’ll find. By the way, we also handle dealer motorcycle shipping.
How long does it take to ship a car from a dealership?
Car dealer auto transport takes 2-5 business days typically after an order is booked, and express dealer auto shipping can be available at an additional fee within 24-48 hours. Once the truck is loaded, it takes between 1-3 calendar days from pick-up to drop-off. A driver usually covers about 500 miles per day, and most dealer car shipments are less than 1,000 miles. Of course, we offer dealer car shipping services nationwide, so if you’re transporting cross-country that could take a bit longer. No matter what your time frame, on most weeks of the year we probably have a carrier who can accommodate it.
Easy Car Shipping, a leader in dealer-to-dealer auto transport
While direct vehicle shipping from dealerships to customers is our mainstay, dealer-trades are our specialty. We know your time is money, and as a dealer you can’t afford to wait when it comes to getting your merchandise on the lot or the keys to a customer – especially if that customer has some type of a deadline. Dealer-to-dealer car shipping is relied on by many of our top dealership clients in response to tighter inventories, as well as for top-notch customer service when a customer has to have that exact thing right now.
We’re one of the top-rated dealer auto shipping companies, with dealer-to-dealer auto transport reviews averaging 4.8 of 5 stars from Lexus, BMW, Mercedes, Audi, Toyota, Honda and dozens of other dealerships across the country. We don’t say this just to talk ourselves up. We want our reviews to be your reviews, which means we work hard to close the loop at every step. A dedicated Transport Coordinator is assigned to each customer order: and for large accounts we assign a dedicated Transport Manager. If you’re the point of contact for shipping as a dealer-representative, or the a customer, when we dispatch an order we provide you with the exact name of the driver, as well as his direct cell phone number. In the unlikely event of any surprises, we’re in proactive contact with all parties.

Transporting cars for dealerships is the very core of our business. Decades of experience means there’s almost nothing we haven’t seen. Therefore, we can guide you and take the burden of decision-making or troubleshooting off your shoulders. Trust our drivers to interact with customers in a way that makes you look good.
