Auto Shipping FAQ: Can I Ship a Car Anywhere?
Here at American Auto Shipping, you can get free quotes to ship a vehicle from anywhere, to anywhere in the entire United States, including Alaska, Hawaii and overseas territories such as Guam, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. However, not everyone is going to be able to ship your vehicle just anywhere – many companies have the ability to ship only to certain places or geographical regions, with the vast majority handling at the very least auto transport services from anywhere, to anywhere in the contiguous United States, as well as Alaska and Hawaii. Some companies offer only international auto transport services, while still others will only offer services to specific cities or states, so while the simple answer to the question in the title is “yes,” the actual answer is usually more of a “probably, it depends though” type answer than anything.
Most auto transport companies will let you know where they ship and where they don’t when you first contact them for a quote. It’s important to ask them about their services. Most every company today will have a section on their website regarding the services they offer and where they ship from and to, so websites are a good place to start. Usually you’ll find that most auto transporters are nationwide shippers, meaning they can get your car moved literally anywhere in the nation. For instance, while many companies say they will ship to or from any state in the U.S., in reality they likely won’t ship overseas to Alaska or Hawaii or to remote areas like Wyoming or Montana.
Most of the companies that you’ll deal with – at least those that will send you quotes and prices in your email when you fill out our free online quote form – will tell you straight-out whether or not they move vehicles into or out of certain areas. Usually you’ll find that services are available to most major metropolitan areas in almost every state in the contiguous United States, but more rural areas or areas with a small population, while they may be available in theory, might be too expensive in practice to get vehicle shipping services into or out of those areas. If this is the case for your shipment, you should move your pickup or delivery locations to somewhere more easily accessible and more cost-effective.
International shipping is one of the most difficult things to do in the auto transport industry and one of the main reasons why we don’t do it. Many people need to transport vehicles to other countries, but you’d be surprised at how low the demand is – and how competitive that part of the industry is. While we don’t offer international auto transport services, we do offer quotes to ship from anywhere, to anywhere that the United States owns or occupies, and that includes the continental U.S. (which includes Alaska), Hawaii, and outlying U.S. territories. Typically, if the city you’re interested in shipping from or to has an actual, post office-recognized zip code, it’s in our form.
