3 Things to Know About Shipping Car Cross Country

Tips to ensure you have a successful move.

We believe in tailor-made car shipping solutions. There are numerous factors to consider when it comes to auto transport.

Here are some of the factors you need to take into account when it comes to getting the best experience:


The most cost-effective way to move your car is to book as far in advance as possible. Flexibility will get you the lowest possible price on your auto relocation.

You also have to take into account the seasons. Different seasons come with higher costs due to weather conditions and public demand. When demand is high, expect to pay higher transport costs.

Transport Type

The most common and affordable way to transport type is open auto transport.

For luxury, high-value cars, it’s better to opt for enclosed transport. We strongly recommend opting for enclosed transport for your shipping car across country service if your car is considered a classic, is valued at more than $50,000, or if its ground clearance is four inches or lower.


Coast-to-coast auto relocation can take up to two weeks. It’s important to be aware of this when organizing your move so you can plan accordingly.

Depending on the service you choose, we can expedite your auto relocation and pick up your car in as little as two business days.


Our customer service team is always available to provide you with around-the-clock updates on where your vehicle is.

Online tracking is becoming a common feature of modern auto-shipping services. Real-time updates, monitored by GPS, will soon allow you to receive as many status updates as you like.


Our network of carriers has been thoroughly vetted to ensure that our customers get the service they expect.

With an RCG-approved carrier, rest easy knowing your car will arrive on time and in the same condition as when it was picked up.


There is a huge difference between transporting cars cross country and moving a vehicle between neighboring towns.

RCG transports thousands of vehicles every year, with every customer getting the personal service and attention they deserve. Our network of carriers is highly experienced and is the expert when it comes to a seamless, high-quality move.

Vehicle transport services can be costly. The final price largely depends on distance. The average cost to ship a vehicle in the U.S. today is $2.92 per mile when transporting a vehicle less than 200 miles and $0.78 per mile to send a vehicle over 1,000 miles or more.
