Can I Ship Firearms in a Car?

Ship Firearms in a CarWe could just answer the question with a simple and resolute “no” but that would only be half of what we want to say. Firearms and guns are a tricky subject, especially in the United States. They charge local and national politics alike and are a touchy subject to speak about. We’re not going to get into the more controversial aspects of guns (at least, we’re going to try not to), but we also have to explain why you can’t ship firearms in a car. So we’re going to try to do that in this blog post

So I can’t ship firearms in a car?

No. You really, honestly, truly cannot. Guns and other types of firearms are volatile regardless of whether or not they’re loaded or the safety is on. Shipping one in a car that is being transported may not be inherently dangerous if you know a bit about gun safety. But that, honestly, is beside the point. It’s legal to transport a gun in your own vehicle, provided that it is locked and secured and out of reach of the driver or passenger. Safety reasons and all that. That includes if you’re traveling across state lines in a motor vehicle. But an auto transport driver is not driving a personal vehicle.

Drivers can get in trouble in certain jurisdictions if they are found to have firearms in the vehicles they are shipping. A host of questions is raised – are the guns property of their customers? Do they have proper licenses? Smuggling firearms across state lines is a problem, and motor vehicle carriers are rife for exploitation in that regard. What if those guns are not locked or secured properly? Who gets in trouble, who is liable? A carrier would be expected to be exempt, but they inspected and loaded the vehicle beforehand. To avoid all these complications (and many more), shippers just put a moratorium on shipping firearms in cars they transport.
