These are common questions about car moving that you might find helpful:

What cars can be shipped by a car shipping company? 

Most companies ship cars, trucks, vans, and SUVs. Some companies may also offer services for ATVs and snowmobiles, as well as jet skis, motorbikes, boats, and heavy equipment. Many moving companies can ship classic and antique cars as well as oversized vehicles. You should ask the auto moving company for information about their services to help you determine if they are able to meet your needs.

Can auto-moving companies take rush orders?

If your vehicle and supporting documents are ready in advance, you can request an immediate pickup. It is possible to arrange for your car to be picked up at a time that suits you.

How long does it take for the vehicle to reach its destination?

It will take approximately 2-4 hours for your car to arrive at the pre-agreed address. This will depend on where it is picked up and the destination. The time it takes for your car to be delivered will depend on traffic conditions, road conditions, and mechanical breakdowns. If there are other vehicles in the same vehicle as yours, it may affect the delivery schedule.

How do I prepare

A representative from the auto shipping company will inspect your car. It is a good idea for the car to be washed and cleaned so that any cracks, scratches, or dents can be recorded and noted. You should also remove any loose parts such as the grill, tire covers, racks, and antenna. You can keep the convertible's top on if you ship it. It is best to have the tops repaired before shipping if there are any tears, open seams, or other damages. You should also get rid of any personal items.

What documentation is needed to ship a vehicle?

An auto shipping company will ask for the original title of your car, a notarized EPA (export power of attorney), and a copy of your driver's license. The auto shipping company may also request a release from the creditor if the car is not fully paid for. The EPA gives the moving company permission to transport your vehicle overseas for you. The Department of Transportation requires that the original title of the vehicle be kept. The car transport company will return the vehicle to the owner after it has been delivered.
