Nationwide Auto Transport

There are a few different types of carriers out there that all service different major auto transport routes. Some routes are short, running between two or three states (such as San Diego to Portland, servicing all cities along Interstate 5). Some are in-state only, like Seattle to Spokane, Washington. And still others are nationwide, like Los Angeles to Boston. Auto transporters transport vehicles primarily on pre-established routes, and hate to deviate from them. When it comes to nationwide transportation, you’re going to be looking at some of the highest prices for transport, given the distance, and it’s going to take anywhere from 7-10 days, on average, depending on exactly how far you’re looking to move.

What’s great about nationwide auto transporters is that they run along a lot of different interstates on their journey from one side of the country to the other. This is actually beneficial for customers looking for transport from one city to another along a nationwide route. Usually nationwide transporters will only pickup and drop off from major metropolitan areas, and will only transport to smaller cities off their routes if they are adequately compensated for their time (in other words, you’re going to pay more if your pickup or delivery locations aren’t relatively close to the interstate). You can usually save some money with nationwide auto transporters by moving your vehicle’s pickup or delivery locations to major metro areas, and the closer you can get to the interstate the better. Carriers like it when pickup and delivery goes quick, because it gives them more time to drive as opposed to standing around.

While understanding auto transport insurance is not rocket science, we think it is important to explain how it works.  As part of providing a great car transport service, it is our job to guarantee that the carrier we assign to pickup your vehicle is licensed and insured.  Click here to check out our license.

When you go with Mercury to ship your vehicle out of state, you can rest assure that the carrier assigned to move your car is fully insured and licensed with the FMCSA (Federal Motor Carrier and Saftey Administration)

Your vehicle is insured by the carrier/truck’s insurance policy that is doing the shipping.  Depending on the type and size of the truck/trailer that is shipping your car, the insurance policy can cover from $100,000 to $1,000,000 of damage.

We have also provided a checklist to explain what you need to do at both pickup and delivery in case there are any issues so, you can file a claim and know that everything will be taken care of.  It is rare but, time-to-time there may be accidental damage while in transit and it is good to know that the insurance of the carrier we locate for you will protect your auto shipment in that event.
