Once you figure out how to move yourself across the country, you may need to figure out about your car if you aren’t driving it to your new space. Some people even opt for selling their car and getting a new one once they get to their destination, especially if it’s very far. Whatever you choose to do, there are some important things you need to know:
Deciding on Car Shipping
Should you drive your car to your new house, or get it delivered? It all depends on how far you’re willing to drive. If you’re moving somewhere in the same state you’re already in, it’s only logical to drive it yourself. Even if you’re just going to a neighboring state, as well. Shipping a car to a home that is pretty nearby can be a waste of money and an extra cost you don’t need.
Getting your car shipped states away is very convenient and can save you time and effort. A entirely cross-country move could take days to drive yourself, because of stopping and having to sleep. This can add up – hotel rooms, gas, and food. Sometimes shipping your car is the way to go if you’re really going the distance.
Using a Car Transport Service
Using a car transport company can leave you with peace of mind that your car gets to your destination safe and sound. Car transport companies have experience and professionalism so it’s easy to trust them with your vehicle. They will be able to give you a quote based on your type of vehicle and how far the distance is from point A to point B. Make sure to also read reviews and check out multiple companies before making a final decision.
The price of getting a car shipped can vary from anywhere between $400-$500 for short hauls, to around $1,500 for long cross-country moves.
