Car Shipping Quotes

Car Shipping Quotes - It may be worth your while to have your car shipped to Cape Coral, if you are moving down here or are snow birding for several months.

Not everyone can or wants to make the long drive down.

It may be more cost effective than renting a car, especially if you plan to stay for more than 2 months.

I have a handy-dandy website that will give you prices from several car shipping companies, that I list further down this page.

The advantage is that you save time, there's no need to do lots of calling and researching.  I have found a big difference in car shipping rates between different companies.

It depends on where you are having your car shipped from and which routes the company services.

Here are some helpful tips to know before you contact the companies that you get car shipping quotes from:

  • Find out if there are seasonal specials, snowbird rates, and/or discounts for military relocations.

  • If insurance is included in the shipping price.

  • The further in advance you can book your car on the transport truck, the better chance you have of getting the dates you want.

  • You will need to be present for pick-up and delivery of your car. If you can't be available, check your company's policy for using an alternate person.

  • Ask if the service is door-to-door, or will you need to go to another location to pick-up and deliver your vehicle.

  • Know that any changes you make will most likely incur additional charges.

  • Check the company's policies about transporting any personal belongings and how much fuel you can have in your car. They have to meet weight requirements.
  • You will need to remove anything from your vehicle that is loose, can become loose, or can break during transport. For example, if your antenna doesn't retract, you will have to remove it.

And one final thing, car shippers can't necessarily guarantee an exact delivery date, so you will need to bear that in mind as you book flights and other travel arrangements.

Weather can be a factor during transport, as well as locations of pick-ups and deliveries of the other cars on the transport truck.

Find out how and when your company will contact you about picking up or delivering your car, it is usually 12-24 hours in advance.

You can also put your car on the Florida Car Train and ride down in style!

The Amtrak Auto Train goes between Lorton, Virginia, which is outside of Washington DC, and Sanford, Florida, which is north of Orlando. It's about a 3-hour drive between Cape Coral and Orlando.
