Cross Country Movers Will Safely Transport Your Car Across the States

Letting somebody handle your automobile is a big deal, and Cross Country Movers acknowledges your worries and doubts. That’s why we have full coverage insurance on top of our other services. As long as it’s in our possession, the machine is covered for up to $100,000 on an open carrier or $500,000 in an enclosed one. With this coverage, your machine will be protected in case of any kind of external damage. However, if you want to know exactly what the insurance covers, give us a call, and our agents will gladly answer all the questions you have.

Pick the Right Type of Transport for Your Vehicle

Cross Country Movers uses two types of trailers for transporting automobiles. When you hire us to ship your machine to the new location, you can choose between open and enclosed transportation types. These carriers are more commonly used, so they are more present on the roads. However, your choice should be based on your finances and timetable.

Use an Open Carrier to Ship Your Vehicle

Using open trailers means that your machine will be exposed to external factors such as dirt and different weather conditions while being hauled to the new location. However, our experienced drivers are trained to handle all kinds of weather and roads, and they will keep an eye on your auto, making sure nothing happens to it. Furthermore, when your machine is loaded onto the truck, our team will use straps to tie it down, keeping it in one spot. Being firmly fixed in one place will ensure that your auto doesn’t get damaged during the long drive.

Keep in mind that open trailers are the more affordable option of the two. They can fit between one and nine cars depending on their size and weight, and because of that, the overall shipping prices are more budget-friendly. Additionally, they are the most frequently used type of transport, so the delivery time is typically shorter.

Enclosed Trailers Are for Very Valuable Machines

If you have a valuable auto that you want to protect from external factors, using a covered trailer for transportation is the right choice. It offers everything open carriers do, with additional protection from road debris and extreme weather. However, this is the pricer service of the two.

Owners of luxurious and classic vehicles commonly prefer an enclosed carrier. It is highly recommended for every person who wants to ship cars such as Maserati, Ferrari, Bentley, or classics like Mustang and Camaro. However, no matter what type of vehicle you are leaving in our hands, the Cross Country Movers team uses trucks that have a lift gate, making the loading process faster and safer. Furthermore, we will use wheel straps to secure your machine in its place. Since your auto will be hidden from the prying eyes, there will be less chance for theft.

Our Long Distance Movers Offer Two Types of Auto Delivery

Cross Country Movers is a company that puts its clients’ needs first. That’s why we offer you two types of delivery options. Depending on your schedule, needs, budget, and state of your vehicle, you can pick between door-to-door or terminal-to-terminal options. If you are not sure which one to choose, give us a call, and our agents will walk you through all the benefits of each option.

Door-to-Door Car Shipping Delivery

Choosing the door-to-door service includes us picking up the auto from your front door and delivering it to the desired location. This is our standard offer, and it is convenient for many clients because you won’t have to stress about dropping off or picking up your machine from the terminal. However, some exceptions can occur. If the truck can’t access your location, the picking up and dropping off of your machine will be arranged at the nearest available site like a parking lot or a wider street.

The Terminal-to-Terminal Delivery Option

The second option Cross Country Movers offers to its clients is terminal-to-terminal delivery. This means that you will have to drive your machine to the nearest terminal and pick it up from another closest to your desired location.

This is a solution for people who have more time on their hands. If your schedule is flexible and you can make an effort to drop off and get your auto from the designated terminal, you can choose this option. In this way, you will save some money because the solution is slightly more affordable than the door-to-door option.

If this is the option you are considering, know that Cross Country Movers operates on terminals in many larger cities across the United States. You won’t really have to go too far to get your machine.

Hire a Long-Distance Moving Company With Transparent Quotes

When looking for the best company to handle your automobile, stay away from those that are not forward and transparent with their quotes and prices. Give Cross Country Movers a call; we will give you a free quote. Furthermore, reach out to our agents, and they will answer all the questions you have about the car relocation process.

Many Factors Can Affect Quotes When Moving Across the Country

You can never know exactly how much money you will need to pay until you call and ask for a quote. However, some factors will more likely than not affect the price:

  • Vehicle weight and size – since carriers have limited space and can fit a certain number of cars, the bigger and heavier car will be pricier to move;
  • The time of year – If you can, avoid shipping anything in summer. That’s when the professional companies are the most booked, and that’s when the prices go up;
  • The distance – because of the labor costs, gas, and tolls, longer distances will be more expensive;
  • The make and model of the vehicle – if relocating luxury cars or those that require special attention, companies can raise their prices;
  • The chosen method of transportation – picking among door-to-door, terminal-to-terminal, open, and enclosed options will also alter your final cost.

How Much Does It Cost to Ship a Car With State-to-State Movers

Nobody can exactly tell how much car shipping costs without contacting professionals and asking for a free quote. However, the average price of transporting a four-door auto coast-to-coast can be between $600 and $1,000, while for transporting an SUV cross country, you will need between $800 and $1,070.

Sometimes, the Low-Cost Option Is Not the Best Solution

When researching and calling companies asking for a free quote, keep in mind that sometimes the cheapest option is not the best solution. Mainly, companies that offer very low rates usually charge some hidden costs, making the overall relocation much more expensive than you thought it would be. Before hiring professionals, go check the reviews, because there you can find out how the companies do their business. Cross Country Movers doesn’t offer the cheapest solution; it gives you the best one. That’s why you should give us a call and hire our movers to handle your machine.

Hire Cross Country Movers and Don’t Worry About the Safety of Your Car

You decided to relocate your vehicle. Now, all you have to do is give Cross Country Movers a call, and we will do the rest. When you choose between open and enclosed carriers and different deliveries, our agents will give you a transparent quote without any hidden cost. Schedule the move and relax. Our movers will load your machine and secure it on the carrier, drive it with the utmost care, and unload it to the new location.

What Car Shipping Company Is Best?

When looking for companies that will handle your machine, you should check if they have high-quality equipment and a trained team. Luckily, when you opt for Cross Country Movers, your troubles will be long gone since our trucks are modern, equipped with ramps and straps. And our movers have years of experience when it comes to transporting cars across the country.

How Long Does It Take to Ship a Vehicle?

The answer to this question depends on many factors, but most importantly – the distance. If you are shipping the machine from one coast to another, it can take up to two weeks. However, to get more accurate information, give our agents a call. They will gladly provide you with a quote and give you the right information about the timetable of the move.

Can You Put Things in the Auto When Shipping It?

This is one of the most common questions customers ask. And although it is not illegal to ship items in the trunk of the machine, we don’t recommend it. For starters, if you have objects inside, they can get damaged during the move. Not only that, but they can also damage the four-wheeler itself. However, you can leave some items in the trunk. Just give us a call, and our agents will inform you just how many pounds can be transported that way.

Can You Ship a Car With a Full Tank of Gas?

When the vehicle is being transported from one state to another, it is not driven there. So there really is no need to fill up the gas tank before loading it onto a carrier. However, don’t leave it empty. After all, the machine needs to have just enough fuel to be driven onto and off the carrier. We recommend filling up to ¼ of the tank before the movers arrive to take the machine away.

How to Prepare an Automobile for the Move?

Before our crew arrives at your home to pick up the machine, you can prepare it for the move so that the whole process goes smoothly. Start by washing the vehicle. Scrubbing down all the dirt will help you see if there are some scratches and dents on the hood. Then declutter the interior.

Remember that your machine will be on the road, so the vibrations might cause mobile objects to become really dangerous. That’s why you should remove anything that’s not buttoned down. Then, disable alarms and check for leaks. If you notice any, fix it before the movers arrive. Finally, check the tire pressure, and if they are under or overinflated, make sure you fix it. If you have some other questions about the steps in preparing the machine for the move, do not hesitate to contact us.

    I like to think that I have finally been rewarded for years of dealing with scamming moving companies and that God sent me to Cross Country Movers. I could write a book about all the bad experiences I have, so it is safe to say that I was a bit skeptical. But these guys proved me wrong. There are trustworthy companies, after all!

    I can’t believe I hit the jackpot on the moving lottery from the first shot! It all happened so quickly. I got a job offer on Monday and decided to leave everything and book my relocation on Wednesday. Cross Country Movers were there for me and guided me through the entire process since I never really moved out of my hometown, nor did I have the time to do the research. I am more than grateful to them.
