"Door-to-door" isn't always literal

Many vehicle transport companies advertise door-to-door services. This gives you a clear idea of what to expect. Your car will be picked up and delivered right to your door. Sometimes, this is what actually happens. Door-to-door shipping can be described as the truck driver picking up your vehicle and dropping it off as close as possible to your home.

Your vehicle's truck and trailer can reach 80 feet in length and 40 tons. This kind of weight is not possible on many residential streets. Also, trucks can't maneuver through the narrow lanes of densely populated cities. These are just some of the possible obstacles your truck may encounter.

If your driver is unable to deliver to your home, they will work with you to find a safe place for you to load and unload your vehicle.

Personal items can often be shipped with your car

Move Car makes it easy to ship personal items with your car. When you ship your car to us, you can add one piece of luggage that weighs at least 100 pounds. This is a great option if you are in the middle of travel and need assistance getting your luggage to your destination. Although it can be simple and efficient to ship your luggage with your car, you should keep in mind that the carrier's cargo insurance does not cover it.

To be shipped, the vehicle doesn't need a license plate

No license plates? No problem. It may not be as difficult as you think. We only need the keys and your vehicle to transport it. Even cars that are not working or won’t start, can ship them. Although it is not necessary to have insurance to ship your car, we recommend it.

Shipping a car is free of sales tax

It can be expensive to move, travel, and transport your car. But there is good news for those who need to relocate their car. Car shipping is a flat-rate service that doesn't include any sales tax.
