How to Ship a Car From Atlanta to Texas

When you’re preparing to transport your vehicle from Atlanta to Texas, you may have a few questions about what to expect. If you’re not prepared to spend nearly 15 hours on the road, scheduling vehicle transport is the best option when you need to ship a car to Texas. You’ll save both time and money when you schedule a car transport.

How Long Does it Take to Ship a Car to Texas?

On average, it takes between 2-4 days to transport a car cross country from Atlanta to Texas. The average auto carrier travels 500 miles per day, depending on their scheduled stops and road conditions. For the best availability and price, we recommend that you schedule your auto transport from Atlanta to Texas as far in advance as possible.

What to Expect During the Transport Process

When the driver arrives to pick up your vehicle, he’ll use a document called a “Bill of Lading” or BOL. A BOL is used to document the condition of your vehicle when it is picked up for transportation to Texas. The document will also serve on the contract between you and the carrier. 

Take time to complete your own self-inspection before the driver loads your car onto the trailer and again when your vehicle arrives at its final destination. The driver will ask you to sign the bill of lading once your car has been delivered to ensure that it arrived in the same condition as when it was picked up. If your car arrives in Texas with any damage, you’ll need to file a claim directly with the carrier and make a record of it on the bill of lading.

What is the Cost to Ship a Car to Texas? 

It’s much more affordable than you may think to schedule transport for your vehicle from Atlanta to Texas. The final price of auto transport will depend on many factors, including the distance traveled, the type of transport you choose, the make and model of the vehicle, and the drop-off location that you select.

Metti International offers door-to-door auto transport service where possible. However, there are instances that we cannot collect/deliver directly to the door due to the size of our auto carrier’s trucks. The size of your street may prohibit direct delivery to your door. Also, some towns and cities do not allow trucks on their residential streets. If the carrier cannot get to your door, he will deliver your vehicle to the next most convenient accessible location, such as the nearest major crossing street, a shopping mall or supermarket.

Please have a no more than 1/4 tank of fuel, remove all personal items from your vehicle and have it washed and cleaned so that the ensuing inspection is easily performed. If it is a convertible, T-top, sunroof, etc. make sure all openings are closed and prepared for changing weather. You can find additional tips on how to prepare your car for transport here.
