Frequently Asked Questions
About Car Shipping

When will my car be delivered?

We know you’re looking forward to seeing your car again after it’s been loaded on the truck. The time it takes to get to its destination will vary based on how far it’s going, how many other cars need to be picked up after yours (if any), weather conditions, traffic, etc.

Who do I pay when my car arrives?

When your car arrives, RunBuggyOne will automatically deduct payment from the payment method you provided when you placed your order. NEVER PAY THE DRIVER. The driver should not ask you for payment. If the driver is demanding payment or proof of payment, please contact us so we can resolve this for you.

What happens if my car gets damaged during shipping?

Accidents unfortunately happen. If your car is damaged in any way when it is delivered, contact us immediately. Damage to your vehicle must be reported within 24 hours of delivery.  We recommend you take multiple pictures of the damage and note the damage on the Bill of Lading before you sign it.

Can I put personal items in my car before it ships?

We do not recommend you place personal items (clothes, furniture, equipment, etc.) in the trunk or inside the car before it’s transported for a few reasons.

  • Personal items are typically not covered by the carrier’s cargo insurance, so the driver may ask that you remove personal items of value.
  • If your car is being transported in an open car carrier, your personal items could be at risk of being stolen while in transit.
  • Lastly, personal items add weight to the car, which may exceed what the transporter is able to carry.

If for any reason you need to pack personal items inside the vehicle it must not exceed 100 lbs. and should be in the trunk or back seats below the window line where someone can’t see them. If you have any more questions about this, please contact us.

Who can sign for my car when it's delivered?

When your car is delivered, the driver will request you, or someone you designate, to sign the Bill of Lading. The person that signs the Bill of Lading must be over 18 years of age. Damage to your vehicle must be reported within 24 hours of delivery.  We recommend you take multiple pictures of the damage and note the damage on the Bill of Lading before you sign it and contact us as soon as you can.

How Much Does it Cost to Ship a Car?

The cost to ship your car can vary depending on a few factors.

The size, weight and condition of the vehicle, the distance from pickup to drop-off, and the type of transport truck (open or enclosed), all  influence the price.

Typically, if a vehicle is longer, taller, or heavier than an average car or truck or if the vehicle doesn’t run, the more expensive car shipping will be. The farther the distance will also add to the cost. An open transport truck is usually cheaper than enclosed transport because it can transport more vehicles at once.

Frequently Asked Questions
About Car Shipping

How much will it cost to ship my car?

That depends on a few things – how many miles it needs to be transported, whether you want an open or enclosed carrier to transport your car, whether your car runs or not, and whether there have been any modifications done on the vehicle (think big Jeep tires) that would make it oversized or overweight. RunBuggyOne provides upfront,  transparent, and no-haggle pricing so the price you see is the price you pay. You can get a free, instant quote by clicking here.

Do you ship electric cars?

Yes. We can help you ship an electric car. Please note that an electric car is typically heavier than a standard car. The price you see in the free instant quote on our website may be different than the price you see when you place an order, because the quote assumes a standard car weight.

Can you ship my dually, lifted, or modified vehicle?

Yes. We can help you ship your dually, lifted, or modified vehicle. Please note that because these vehicles are typically oversized and heavier than a standard car, the price you see in the free instant quote on our website may be different than the price you see when you place an order. The reason is because the quote assumes a standard car size and weight.

Can you ship a car that doesn't run?

Yes. We can help you ship a car that doesn’t run (no keys, dead battery, no engine, etc.). Please note that the price you see in the free instant quote on our website may be different than the price you see when you place an order, because the quote assumes a standard car that runs. Inoperable cars require special equipment and extra work to load and unload.

What's the difference between an open and enclosed car carrier?

This is what an open car carrier looks like:
this is what open car carriers look like

There are different types of open car carriers or transporters, but the general idea is that they are “open”.  These are the most common type of car carriers and typically less expensive than enclosed car carriers. Shipping your car in an open car carrier means it will be exposed to the elements (rain, snow, hail, wind, rocks, etc.).

 

Enclosed car carriers look like this:
this is what enclosed car carriers look like

Enclosed car carriers provide better protection from the elements and theft, and are typically more expensive for shipping your car. We recommend enclosed car carriers for classic, luxury, exotic, or one-of-a-kind vehicles that are considered expensive or valuable.

 

Please note that the price you see in the free instant quote on our website may be different than the price you see when you place an order because the quote assumes a standard car being shipped in an open car carrier.

What is the Bill of Lading?

The Bill of Lading is a document used by shipping companies as part of the inspection they do when they pick up your car to record any possible damage prior to shipping.  When your car is delivered to you, you will be asked to sign the Bill of Lading, which indicates you have received your car and that it was not damaged during shipping.

 

If you notice any damage to your car that may have occurred during shipping, note the damage on the Bill of Lading before you sign it and Contact us within 24 hours of delivery to report any damage.

Is my car insured during shipping?

Yes. RunBuggyOne verifies every transporter carries the right insurance to transport your vehicle.  RunBuggyOne also carries a separate insurance policy to further protect your vehicle. We recommend that you confirm your personal auto insurance policy is up-to-date, that it provides coverage for car shipping, and that you maintain coverage for the duration of your shipment.

Should I fill up my car with gas before it goes on the truck?

We recommend having no more than 1/4 tank of gas in your car at the time of shipping, which is just enough for the transporter to load and unload your car. If you have a full tank of gas, it will add more weight and the transporter may need to drain the gas to lessen the load.

What do I do with my license plate(s)?

Take any license plates off the vehicle and put them in the glove box. This will ensure your vehicle does not accidentally get charged while going over any toll roads or bridges. We recommend you also keep the vehicle registration in the glove box as well.

How do I cancel my order?

If you need to cancel your order for any reason, you may do so at any time up to when your car is loaded on the truck. Simply contact us and let us know you need to cancel.
