Costs of Shipping a Car from California to North Carolina?


I am planning to ship a car from California to North Carolina. Could you please let me know what would be the normal cost of shipping a car there!

Anwer: Generally, shipping from coast to coast could come around $1000 to $1500 (general estimate!). But do understand that car shipping costs vary for so many reasons.

The most important factor that determines the cost of shipping is your car’s size and weight. Are you shipping a truck or mini-car? That could mean a good amount of dollars in between.

So, it would help and it could save you a few dollars if you could make your car lighter. Sounds impossible? Well, if you think about it, you can take away your add-ons, say if you have like a bicycle rack or ski rack, and even keep the level of gasoline low. Your car model and make also has something to do with the price.

Also, the method of shipping. You don’t own a Ferrari or Lamborghini now would you? Because if you do, you might need to make use of the expensive enclosed car shipping method. But if you own one of those regular sedans, then you can ship through the typical and less expensive open, multi-car shipping.

At any rate, get in touch with a number of car shippers then ask each of them for a car hauling quotes so that you would know exactly how much you need to spend. Compare at least 5 quotations so you can weigh the possibilities. There’s a lot of information here that could work for you. I hope this helps.
