How to Ship a Car Out of California

How to Ship a Car Out of California

In recent years, people have been moving out of California in drones due to rising taxes, a high cost of living, expense property costs and various other reasons. Many major California companies are packing their bags and relocating elsewhere to avoid high taxes of their own, with employees and families following along. 

To ensure your move from California goes smoothly, schedule auto transport for your vehicle when you know your moving dates. This will help you avoid the address stress of having to drive your car to your new home with many days spent on the road. It may come as a surprise that you may even save money in the process. There are a few things you'll need to do to prepare to ship a car from California.

Choose Your Method of Transportation

Open Carrier: Open carrier auto transport is the most common type of domestic transport and is considered the most affordable option. Your car will be loaded on and off the carrier with ease and transported along with 7-9 other vehicles. 

Enclosed Carrier: If you ship a car from California that is considered classic or vintage, enclosed auto transport is your best option to ensure it's protected from the elements. Keep in mind that it's more expensive than using an open carrier, so this may not be the most cost-effective option.

Identify a Pick a Drop off and Delivery Point

Door-to-Door Shipping: This method offers you the most convenience when you're planning a move out of California. Your car will be picked up and dropped off at your home or a nearby location. 

Terminal Shipping: Terminal shipping is a good option if you're looking to save money or don't have a permanent address at your new location. You'll schedule a predetermined location, typically a terminal or public place, to have your car picked up. There may be additional fees if the location is not in a metro/city area.
