Long Distance Movers Will Ship Any Type of Vehicle Skillfully, Efficiently, and for Affordable Cost

Thanks to years of experience in the business, a highly-trained and devoted team, and modern equipment, you can rest assured that we will ship your car safely to any chosen destination. As you will see in the following text, we will provide you with plenty of options to choose from when it comes to our service. However, you are bound to meet only the best quality regardless of the choices made.

Our exceptional services will not leave you flat broke – not even close. We have reasonable prices even if we are hired only for auto transport service.

Ship Your Car With an Open or Enclosed Carrier - We Can Offer Both

You are the one who chooses how the car will be transported, while we are responsible that everything goes by smoothly. There are two choices ahead of you – depending on your wishes, needs, but also vehicle’s type, pick either an open or enclosed carrier.

Most of our customers decide to use an open carrier, usually because it’s a more affordable one. However, it’s not the only advantage – an open trailer can fit more vehicles, which is a significant convenience if you are relocating multiple cars. Also, pickup and delivery times are, in general, shorter than with an enclosed carrier.

However, an open character of this type of trailer means that your vehicle can’t be protected from the circumstances that are not under our influence. Road hazards, such as rocks and debris, and even weather can possibly cause dents, scratches, and other damage to your car. So, if you own a new and luxurious vehicle or a classic, we strongly suggest you use a less affordable but safer enclosed carrier. Mentioned types of damage are not common, but when it comes to high-end or unique vehicles, it’s always better to be safe than sorry.

No Matter Which Trailer You Choose, Your Car Will Be Insured During Shipping

Although our cross-country movers will pay attention to each detail during the transportation, there can never be enough precaution. You’ll be happy to know that all of our trailers are insured if a car suffers from external damage. In the case of an open trailer, insurance will cover up to $100,000 per vehicle, and when it comes to the enclosed, the amount goes up to half a million dollars.

Different Pickup and Delivery Options Are There to Meet the Diverse Needs of Our Customers

Knowing where we are going to pick up and drop off your car is necessary so you can get organized accordingly. Customers who value comfort over the price are more likely to use a door-to-door transportation option. It implies that our driver will drop off your vehicle in front of your home. Of course, there is always a possibility that your old or new place is located in a too-narrow or too-busy street. In that case, we will deliver the car to the nearest possible location, such as the closest parking lot.

A terminal-to-terminal option, as a more affordable one, is also at your disposal. Our long-distance moving company has terminals in many large cities across the country. If you’re relocating from and to a big city, terminal-to-terminal transportation won’t be that inconvenient. On the other hand, if you live or are moving to more rural areas that are hard to reach for our drivers, this option may even be the only one possible.

Don’t Forget to Choose a Representative If You’re Not Able to Be Present

While we are on the topic of pickup and delivery, we must point out how this part of the process looks like. The most important thing to remember is that a car must be inspected both before and after the transport. Firstly it’s done by our driver, who will document the vehicle’s condition, and secondly, you must check the car for eventual damage after shipment.

Those inspections, alongside paperwork that must be signed, demand that someone always be present to hand over and receive the car. That doesn’t necessarily need to be you. If you are unable to be physically present during pickup and delivery, make sure to ask someone to help you.


A Cost-Free Quote Is a Part of Our Transparency Policy

We at Long Distance Movers believe in complete transparency, so you’ll always know what exactly you are paying for and how much (unlike with many other companies). All you have to do is fill the form on our website and get a free quote. It’s completely user-friendly and won’t take long. And if you’re more a talk-on-the phone kind of person, know that our customer services are also available. Get in touch with us, provide us with all the necessary information, and get the quote promptly.

Factors We Use in Determining the Cost of Our Auto Transport Services

When questioning how much shipping an auto costs, keep in mind that we base our quote on several different elements. We consider:

  • Locations where a vehicle should be shipped from and to,
  • Distance between your current and future location,
  • The model of your car, alongside car year and make,
  • Vehicle’s size,
  • Transportation options you have chosen,
  • Period of the year.

In the auto shipping industry, market prices tend to change rapidly. If you want to get a quote as close to the final cost as possible, the best time to book our service will be two to three weeks prior to the desired date.

With Our Services, You’ll Be Reunited With Your Car in No Time

One of our goals is to keep you apart from your car as little as possible. Depending on the distance between locations, our time frame for delivering vehicles is between five and fourteen days. Keep in mind that once you contact us and book transport, we will be able to give you only the estimated period of pickup and delivery.

Many unpredictable circumstances can influence the time of arrival, such as traffic, road conditions, weather, mechanical problems, and the like. That is why, at the start, we can provide you only with a three-day pickup window. Once our driver can safely assume how long it will take to get to your current place, you will get a call with more precise information.


Make Sure That the Vehicle Is Completely Prepared for Shipping

There are certain steps you need or should take before our driver comes. Keep in mind that without some of them, your car can’t even be loaded into our carrier. According to it, make sure to:

  • Clean the car and take photos of it – a deep cleaned automobile is easier to inspect for eventual damage. As for photos, they can serve as proof your car is not returned in the same condition it was handed over (which rarely happens with us, not to say never).
  • Empty a gas tank – your tank mustn’t be more than one-quarter full. Not only will more gas make the vehicle heavier, but the gas itself represents a significant hazard.
  • Remove are removable parts and secure the loose ones.

Remember – the better you prepare a car for the transport, the less time the pick-up procedure will occupy.

Need to Transport Multiple Vehicles? No Problem - It’s One More Option We Offer

Suppose your household has multiple vehicles or you’re having a commercial move and wish to ship a larger number of company cars. In that case, know that our cross-country moving company can provide you with it, and in the way that every car you handed to us remains intact. Keep in mind that open trailers can carry more vehicles simultaneously than enclosed ones. If you opt to use them, know that they can ship up to nine cars.

Auto Transport Is Always a Better Option Than a Road Trip, Especially With the Best Car Shipping Company

Many people opt for driving their vehicle across the country, counting only on the financial benefits and money they’ll save if they don’t hire professionals. However, they often tend to neglect the fact that a road trip to the new destination would cost much more than just money spent on gas.

You’ll have to provide meals, snacks, beverages, and, probably, accommodations in several places. What about all the car parts that will be spent during the drive? And let’s not forget checkups with the mechanic before and after the road trip! You must determine if the vehicle is in a good enough condition to drive you through that distance and see if everything is fine with the car after a long drive. Keep in mind that those appointments cost, too.

Moreover, having to drive all the way to the new home can be a tiresome job, especially if driving is really not your thing. Relocation experience is one of the most complex and stressful ones in our lives, so why add more work and stress to it? Book a flight, bring your favorite book, sort through your favorite movies and games, and enjoy your trip. After all the hard work you put into the relocation, it will be a well-deserved rest. Don’t worry – Long Distance Movers will help you as much as we can and take care of everything else.

Ai H. Goleta, CA

Just recently, I bought a used car in San Diego despite living in LA and needed a way for my car to be transported to me. Thankfully, my friend referred me to this place that was also in San Diego. Transporting a car could very expensive, but it was more affordable than I thought! so I scheduled everything accordingly and had them deliver my car to me. It was definitely worth it since my car was fairly cheap and my dad knew how he was gonna fix it so everything was worth it. They got my car to me and had no problem picking up as scheduled with the seller and no damage or hiccups during the transport! Very satisfied with the service and would definitely recommend them to my friends or anyone!

Anna L. Los Angeles, CA

My sister in Portland was relocating to another country and she needed to get rid of a lot of her furniture and even some appliances and she decided to let me inherit them. She used Long Distance Movers in Portland and they effectively communicated with me when they would schedule to come deliver her stuff to my place I’m SF. Apparently she told me if I wanted to keep all her things to at least pay for their service in which I did. Good thing we coordinated because I just moved in to my new place and needed all the furnishings. I met the minimum for their service and they provided a reasonable contract and in turn everything turned out great! She even told how they carefully wrapped and packed up everything as well. Definitely a great service to use!

Brianna S. Huntington Beach, CA

I was helping my friend move back down to California from Seattle. There’s a lot of moving companies but I went with this one because of their quote per item and distance moved was something she can afford. Then we set a schedule for moving and they came prepared with their trucks and Mark was their lead guy and helped us out with everything. He coordinated the whole move gracefully with no damage and even covered her things to protect, a nice touch.

Especially with moving large appliances, I was appreciative to receive help moving all of the heavier objects we had.

The movers delivered all of the belongings safely to the new house and were again, super punctual with their delivery.

Celina C. Richmond, Canada

My car is a really old Volvo and since it is now considered a vintage/retro automobile, I was extremely weary about having it transported to my area. Honestly, I don’t know much at all about these services, but I was really worried about moving companies in general, especially because of the risks involved, including damages that may happen during handling while being transported.

During my last move, I used a different moving service and it was a nightmare. I paid a lot and had a vintage, German-made GRAND piano get scratched and no one took responsibility. It was a huge disappointment but this time, I decided to look elsewhere and took a chance with Long Distance Moving and Auto transport, and they really delivered.

Everything came perfect and the price was less than $800 for the whole service… comparing it to my previous service, I’m shocked to say the least. The price is great, and for someone who was worrying like me, they had a policy where they would cover any damages (if they should incur) during the move/transportation and it put me to ease. I can’t say enough good things.

Gabby O. Los Angeles, CA

I bought a car in Tarant County Texas since the sales tax is non existent and my dad suggested getting a car from his friend’s used dealership. My dad offered to get me the car, but I would have to only pay the shipping. Long distance movers had auto shipping and it was a good price to get my car transported from there to the bay. It was really affordable for me and when I got my car, it was still perfect in the condition in which we bought it for. They were very professional through whole process and informative. Definitely a 5 star rating for the service and professionalism!

Kaitlyn V. Fountain Valley, CA

I got a car while I was visiting my family in the Bay. So I needed it to be brought down to SoCal, because I wasn’t finished with my vacation yet and went by plane. After searching for moving companies, I found one in San Fransisco.

Long distance movers offered me a good rate per mile compared to other companies. The workers reassured me on the condition of my new car when it would arrive safely in SoCal. They said they would insure the car from any damages, and there’s no need to worry.

I’m glad I found this company because they made me feel like I was in good hands, and they definitely proved it to me. If you need a moving company, be sure to check this one out because they made my life a lot easier!

Kirsten Rose K. Pinole, CA

I was in NY over the summer and when it was over I moved back home. During that timw I also needed to store things and then have it shipped to me back home later. Thankfully I was able to do that with Long Distance Movers! They were able to store my stuff until I was home to be shipped back to me. The space in NY apartments are very scarce and sk this is the way I had to keep my things instead of asking my friends there to do so. My experience was a pleasant and stress-less one and I have zero complaints with their service! A huge recommend!!

Matthew A. San Diego, CA

My uncle is no longer driving his car and wanted to ship me his car to keep and make room in his garage so he can store his other belongings so a family friend can move and do some care taking.

I did some hunting and came across Houston Long Distance Movers and Auto Transport as well as some others. They were one of the first one who got back to me with quote that was more than reasonable for cost per mile in an open trailer. My uncle was more than happy to hear that I took care everything for him and they were really courteous and helpful when they came and picked up his car.

A week later the car was transported and delivered with care. Contract all signed and done. Now I gotta new used car just like that! I highly recommend this team should you need some good pricing and service!

Michael D. Redmond, WA

This was my first time using a moving and transportation service. I had a very good experience with Manhattan Long Distance Movers and Auto Transport. I was attending college around the area in New York and once I graduated, I had so much stuff that I wanted to take back home with me in Washington. This would be shipping across the country so I know that I needed a long distance service.

I checked out the website and filled in my information to get a quote. I was surprised by how affordable the price was, considering I am moving all my stuff across the country. It made it easy for college students to be able to use the service. Anyways, I called them and had an excellent customer experience. The representative was friendly and attentive to my needs. They did not try to up-sell me anything and was very fair in the pricing and guidelines of what to expect next. They described the entire process to me and I felt very confident and at ease in continuing with the process.

The movers came over to my apartment and moved everything into a truck very fast and safely. These are real professionals who want to make your move as smooth as possible. Overall, I had a pleasant experience with this company and after moving back home, everything came in about 2 weeks to my home address. Nothing was missing or damaged. I would recommend this service to anyone in the New York/Manhattan area who want to move long-distance while maintaining affordable prices.

Norma C. Los Angeles, CA

So my boyfriend is actually the person that found Long Distance Movers and I swear it saved me time and money! My initial plan was to have my family help us make the long drive from Seattle to Los Angeles and just penny pinch that way.. but nope! My boyfriend came thru and he said that he was told that LDM was professional and are very competitive in pricing so why not?! He said that he booked them and just let him do the rest (typical alpha male stuff I guess)..

I was a little hesitant at first but 2 people showed up on time! And also were very well prepared, it’s like they knew how to tackle on each project I was throwing at them and on top of that with a smile! They wrapped/boxed everything so quickly I was so impressed! I would definitely refer them to my friends and family in the area, I can’t stop saying this enough but they were polite, proficient, quick and also not too expensive.

Moving is such a headache and stressful but I swear I wasn’t this time! Thank you LDM and to my bf for finding them!!

Roger M. Pasadena, CA

My sis graduated from Reed College earlier this year so i flew over to Portland to help her move back home. She had a lot of stuff she decided to keep last minute, more than we anticipated to ship back ourselves. We aren’t super familiar with moving services in the area but decided to go with Long Distance Movers since they responded with a quote the quickest and offered to have everything packed and loaded before we had to catch our flight in a couple days.

My sis and I are pretty weak so they were a really big help especially with packaging her desk and other big items. There were 2 movers and they packaged and cleared out everything quickly. Honestly, I don’t know how we were planning to move all her things ourselves. Us two wouldn’t have made it past the apartment stairs so we definitely needed Long Distance Movers.

Yaning W. University, Riverside, CA

Moving away from home for the first time can be a pretty daunting task. Luckily, Long Distance Movers had my back. I recently moved down from Sacramento to SoCal for university and needed a way to move a lot of my belongings down with me. I was originally recommended by a friend who had used their services before. All it took was a quick message through Yelp and they replied quickly with an estimate and more questions about my inquiry.

On the day of the actual move, they were punctual and loaded my stuff in what seemed like no time. Once I came down, everything had been delivered safely and was in great condition. My housemate who received my stuff said they unpacked my stuff neatly and without much obstruction at all! Communicating with them was seamless and super straightforward, and kudos to the driver as well! Overall, I’d say my experience was great and I’d definitely recommend this to anyone in the Sacramento area who wants to move something and are afraid of their items being damaged.
