We have different options to suit your needs. For most cars, we recommend using an open trailer. This is the same method used to transport new cars from factories to dealerships and is the most budget-friendly choice. However, if you have a special or valuable car like an exotic, collectible, or antique vehicle, we suggest using an enclosed trailer for added protection.

You can cancel your booking at any time before your vehicle is picked up. If you cancel before a carrier is assigned, there will not be any charges. However, if you cancel after a carrier has been assigned, you will only be charged the initial payment amount.
You can use major debit and credit cards like Mastercard, Visa, Discover, and American Express for the initial payment. For the remaining balance on the day of delivery, you can pay with cash or a certified check made out to the carrier, which is the most cost-effective choice. Alternatively, if you prefer, you can choose to pay the entire amount with a credit card when you initially book the service. However, there is a 3% credit card fee with this option.
