Our team verifies every car transporter we work with to ensure they have a clean driving record and the right insurance coverage. You can feel confident your car is safe with us.
Sustainable Car Shipping
We use data science and Artificial Intelligence to reduce the number of empty miles our transporters need to drive. This reduces C02 and saves your some green.
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.

About Car Shipping
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.
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.
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.
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.
This is what an open car carrier looks 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:
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.
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.
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.
When you 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.
We know you’re looking forward to seeing your car again after its been loaded on the truck. The time it takes to get to its final 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.
In addition, you should have received an email and/or text message with a special link to track you car and get updates on its delivery status. If you still have any questions about when your car will arrive, please feel free to contact us.
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.
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.
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.
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.
