Full Answer

  1. Contact several shipping companies

    Call or visit several car moving companies. Ask for their credentials, liability and property damage insurance information, and a quote. Find out whether they transport your vehicle via train, in a trailer attached to a truck, or inside the back of a semi-truck.

  2. Review quotes

    Review each quote obtained and keep cost, insurance and length of time in the business in mind as you decide which company to hire.

  3. Schedule pickup and delivery

    Call the moving company and schedule the pickup and delivery date along with the expected time of arrival. Make an appointment with the company to sign all the necessary paperwork and to review the terms of the contract.

  4. Check regulations for vehicle relocating

    Call the Department of Motor Vehicles in the state the movers are taking the vehicle to in order to learn about its import regulations. Find out what inspections, if any, are needed and what the time frame is for getting new tags on the vehicle.
