From there, it will take you just a few minutes to complete the process.


But first, here are some tips on ensuring you get the most accurate quote possible.


Input the Right Information

Always make sure you’re inputting the correct information for accuracy:

  • Year
  • Make
  • Model
  • Pickup Location
  • Drop Off Location

It’s very easy to make a mistake and input the wrong year or model, which will impact the shipping quote you receive. Double check all information before hitting send. Keep in mind, no matter how accurate your information is, no one can always guarantee an exact price down to the penny until you actually book.

Talk to a Person

There’s no substitute for speaking to a live person over the phone when you have questions that can’t be answered online. A customer service rep can review the exact details of what you need. Perhaps you live a remote area, or the car is being shipped to a remote area. This will raise the shipping cost. Know before you book.
