Cross Country Car Transport

''The most reliable, quick, simple, and affordable way to ship your car across country with Safemile Auto Transport.'' 

Cross-country vehicle transportation is the move of a car from one city to another, state to state, coast to coast, or anywhere in the United States. When you're moving a vehicle across the U.S., you need a shipping company that you can rely on. We are here to offer you an affordable, safe, and stress-free cross-country vehicle shipping experience using our over 14,000+ thoroughly vetted open and enclosed carrier network. We can pick up your car on your specified dates and deliver it directly to your home. Car carriers usually travel up to 500 miles a day and transportation anywhere within the mainland takes 2-10 calendar days after pickup.

Below is a general guide for how many days it will take to ship your car across the country:

From the East Coast to the Midwest (2-4 days).

From the West Coast to the East Coast (7-10 days).

From the North to the South (2-4 days).

From the West Coast to the Midwest (3-5 days).

How Much Does It Cost To Ship A Car Across The Country?

The cost of shipping your car cross country largely depends on the size and weight of the vehicle, if it is operational, any modifications made to it, seasonality, and your preferred method of transport.

Moving your car across the country via an open carrier usually costs between 50 and 60 cents per mile, a journey of 2,500 miles would therefore set you back $1,500. But beware: shorter trips might have a higher "per-mile" rate as it takes the driver more or less the same time to load/unload regardless of how far they drive.

The average rate for the first 1-500 miles is usually $1.5 per mile, so a 350-mile trip up the coast of California might cost approximately $525. The longer the distance, though, the lower the price per mile becomes: Moving a standard-sized car 1000 miles will drop the rate to only $1 per mile, or just $1000 in total. Conversely, taking it 2,500 miles could cost around $1750 at most. Safemile Auto Transport always guarantees top-notch service and unbeatable prices within our industry.

Why Is Cross Country Car Shipping Better Than Driving?

You should not make this decision lightly. There are several variables to consider before deciding whether to transport your vehicle or drive it across the nation. Consider:

-Hazardous driving conditions and driving distances; We all know that long-distance driving has its hazards. If you're planning a road trip through several states, use a car transport service instead of attempting to figure it out on your own. Rather than dealing with unfamiliar places, hazardous roadways, and, worst of all, driving, save time and energy by having one of our expert car transporters handle the transportation. Our professional car transporters will take care of moving your car so that you can sit back and relax.

-Rent and travel expenses during your trip; A cross-country trip might take over 50 hours, even if you drove non-stop (which is not possible). During your trip, you will have to rent a hotel for a couple of days to get some rest. There will also be other costs like refueling the car, unexpected emergencies, stopping to eat, and other detours that may occur along the way.

-Time lost during the trip; Taking a trip across the country by car takes a long time. We understand how important your time is, therefore save yourself the trouble and ship your car with Safemile Auto Transport across the nation to get where you're going faster. Additionally, while on the road, you are subject to traffic, unpredictable road conditions, other drivers, and so on. Save yourself time and money by shipping your car with Safemile!
