Cross country car shipping – definition

        Buying a car isn't cheap. It's one of those investments you really care about, just like you would care about your real estate or jewelry. That's why, when it comes to cross-country car shipping, you'll want to find a reliable car transport option that would not let you down. Cross-country car shipping requires a meticulous approach and careful planning. Flamingo Auto Transport is ready and willing to lend you a helping hand from the get-go. From planning the route to picking your car and delivering it to the most convenient location, our experts make the process as straightforward and hassle-free as possible.

        Keep in mind that most truck drivers are unable to access residential areas since their vehicles are too massive. In most cases, the pick-up point and the drop-off location are picked in either a parking lot near supermarkets outside the town, at the truck stops, or somewhere closer to the highway. 


         Cross country car shipping – the price

        When it comes to shorter distances (up to 500 miles), expect to pay about $2 or less per mile. The price is lower for medium distances (500-1500 miles), $1 or less. If you're planning on shipping your car to long distances (1500 mils and more), the price will reach $.60 or less.


        Cross country car shipping prices – guide

        To get your car safely from point A to point B, you'll have to follow these simple yet effective guidelines:

  • Establish a clear destination – where you are shipping from and to.
  • Choose the pick-up and delivery dates.
  • Find a trustworthy carrier.
  • Find a quote.
  • Place the order.
  • Pick your vehicle up.


        What's at stake?

        Not every company has what it takes to handle cross-country shipping. Furthermore, car shippers offering lower than average quotes are often no-good swindlers who don't take their job seriously. It may result in car damages and even loss of your vehicle, which is the last thing you'll ever want.

        With Flamingo, all you need is to choose the desired pick-up location, and we'll take it from there! Your vehicle will be delivered to the designated spot of your choosing, and you can benefit from our door-to-door transport option to get your car to where it's needed within the very least amount of time feasible!


        Things to ponder over when doing cross-country shipping

  • Schedule your shipping as early as possible for us to tailor every detail according to your needs and preferences. However, if an immediate pick-up is necessary, we can arrange for that as well. Just call us!
  • Choose transport type – open or enclosed. Open transport implies your vehicle is being shipped on an open trailer. Enclosed car shipping is viewed as a safer alternative since your car is placed in a trailer with sides and a roof.
  • Calculate your expenses. Though car shipping is the easiest and cheapest way to transport your vehicle, certain nuances affect the cost of this service. Among them is the size of your vehicle and its weight. Even the largest trailers can't take all the cars onboard. Moreover, the capacity is much smaller when it comes to hauling trucks, so fewer vehicles can fit in the trailer. It affects the price accordingly.
  • Estimate timing. Depending on the distance, car shipping may take up to several weeks. It's important to have a backup plan without your car at hand. Even though, in most cases, our customers will receive their vehicles quicker, be sure you have other means of transportation planned as your backup.
