You poured over every online car publication you know. Looking through the new cars and used cars listings then.. There it was! You found your dream car online, but it’s out of town, or even out of state. You want it without even a test drive!
So, what's the next step? How do you get new or used cars with a home delivery option? You need an online car shipping company that’ll deliver your new “baby” to you in a way that offers both safety and value.
We understand your online car transport needs with online sales
Whether you’re buying on eBay Motors, Craigslist, on online dealership – or perhaps you’re selling on Cars.com – we know the car buyers business very well. We routinely provide online transportation services for both car buyers and sellers, picking up from a dealership or an individual. Maybe you bought your next car out of state because the price tag was lower than buying from a local dealership directly. But what's the next step?
When you’re buying a car from out of state and the vehicle doesn't have any license plates, you need an online sales transport company that knows the car business as well as vehicle shipping. How does 30+ years of experience with cars sound? You need a driver and support team who knows how to properly fill out the Bill of Lading including adding the vehicle identification number, right from the start at the pickup location to the home delivery. That inspection report documents the condition of the vehicle and vehicle identification number so you can compare it when it arrives.
Are you a collector and found that one-in-a-million exotic car online, or want to ship your grandfather’s 1965 Ford pickup? For that, you not only need online truck transport: you also need a driver who’s careful and thorough and well accustomed to high volume, high-value classic car transport – someone who understands the perspective of people that buy cars - that shipping a car often has a real sentimental aspect to it and can provide a level of care that provides extra peace of mind.
We realize that when you choose to buy a car online from Craigslist, eBay or on online dealership, you already feel like you’re taking a bit of a risk without a test drive - afraid of a scam or inconvenience. It is tough to verify the vehicle identification number of the car your looking to buy, and most of these vehicles would be delivered with no license plates therefore you will need to get temporary registration. And you’re not ready to add to it by selecting an online car transport company that has less than a stellar reputation.
At Easy Car Shipping we put both car purchasers’ and sellers‘ nerves at rest, taking the burden of coordination with the other party off your shoulders. If you feel the weight of responsibility to coordinate the pick-up/drop-off process, but don’t worry – we’ve got this! Once you book an order, we contact the seller and handle it all on the car purchasers behalf. We assign a designated Transport Coordinator to every order so you’ll always know exactly who to call, and once we dispatch a driver you’ll also have his name and cell phone during transit until the home delivery.
How much does it cost to ship a car from online sales?
Online transport costs ~$1.40 per mile for 1-500 miles. So, a 350-mile trip would cost $490. The longer the distance, the lower the price: Moving a car ~1000 miles drops it to $1 a mile, or $1000. Coast-to-coast online auto shipping can be as little as $.60 cents per mile - talk about getting the best deal possible for your home delivery!
Online car shipping quotes for car shoppers can vary widely based on the quality of transporter, vehicle size, whether you choose enclosed car transport or express vehicle shipping, and seasonal demand. Our Quick Quote system offers you an instant, onscreen set of prices and options, which are all-inclusive.
Fully transparent pricing, with no hidden fees, surcharges or surprises. We don’t ask for your name or phone number, so you can check anonymously and trust no one will ever call you to sell you. We’re available if and when you want to book, both by phone or replying to the simple email we send documenting your quote in case you wish to book later. And we guarantee that price a full 14 days: that’s 2x the industry norm.
One of the optional quotes we include is for enclosed transport, which is recommended if you’re shipping a car worth >$70,000 or with unique or sentimental value. While standard open-trailer works great for about 80% of our customers, and it offers the best value for car purchasers, there are times when nothing will do except enclosed car shipping.
How long does it take to ship a car online?
Shipping a new or used vehicle for car shoppers from online sites like Craigslist, eBay, or an online dealership takes between 1-6 calendar days from the date your car is picked up to when it’s dropped off. A driver usually covers about 500 miles per day. The first available pickup date is for car transport is typically 2-7 business days after an order is placed, and express auto transport is usually available within 24-72 hours.
The length of time your car is on the road is partly contingent on your location. It may take longer if it’s going through the mountains, especially in winter, or if there are weather-related issues such as during hurricane season. And where it’s going matters too – for instance, if the online transport address is in a remote area it can take an extra day or two as well. Once your vehicle is ready for delivery to either a dealership or to a residential home, we guarantee you'll have a great experience. If the driver can't reach your residential home because of narrow streets, he might ask you to meet him in a safe and public place for the drop off.
Given the fact that a carrier typically has 7-10 vehicles aboard, the ability to coordinate customer preferences and availability across multiple states, time zones and shifting priorities is what sets a great carrier above the rest. As a baseline, you’ll be asked for a pickup and drop-off date preference and you always get the best value if you’re comfortable with an initial +/- 1 or 2 day window of flexibility ... and most customers are. The closer we get to the dates, the more precise the information will get.
However, a surprising number of our customers and car buyers have a strict deadline -- such as somebody’s birthday, an anniversary gift, or a need to get the new vehicle picked up in time to transport it to an auction or dealership by a set date. If you need very specific dates, we offer guaranteed pickup or drop-off when you opt for express auto transport service, whichever is more valuable to you.
Long distance car buying can be lots of fun, especially the digital car shopping phase as you search through car listings. But it can feel overwhelming when you get to the shipping phase as you try to search through a long list of auto transport companies. If it’s your first time ordering an online vehicle shipping service, our 3 decades of experience in the car industry and 14 years with online car shipments offers peace of mind, so you worry less about the unknown.
