What’s involved in shipping a car across country?

Putting your vehicle into the hands of one of the nation’s auto transport companies can be stressful. Your car is likely the second most expensive item you own next to your home and chances are good it has sentimental value, too. So when you’re shipping your car across country, there’s a lot you need to think about.

Long distance auto transport comes with its own logistical challenges, but you shouldn’t have to worry about them! At Montway, we have a large carrier network covering the entire US, and we take pride in the fact that we offer multiple long-distance shipping options — all of which are guaranteed to get your vehicle where it needs to go.

We know how much you rely on your vehicle, which is why we take a personalized approach to across-country car transport that includes dedicated customer service, around-the-clock monitoring, regular updates, and insurance coverage for your peace of mind.

The total price of shipping a car across the country will depend on the type of vehicle you need to move, any modifications that could impact shipping, whether your vehicle runs, the distance it needs to travel, whether you’re in a metro or rural area, seasonal considerations, and the type of trailer you need. We offer all-inclusive pricing without any hidden fees, so the best way to gauge the cost to ship a car is to request a quote.

Transport type

Most Montway customers opt for open auto transport, which is the budget-friendly way to ship a car across country. But if you need to transport a luxury vehicle, a classic car, or a specialty vehicle, consider choosing enclosed transport that will shield your car from weather and road debris over long distances.
