We move it right, so your life can keep on trucking
Trucks are as much a part of the American landscape as you can get. They're the grit-and-gravel vehicles for off-roading, heavy-loading, adventure-seeking, and getting the job done. We know their role on the roads is crucial, so we make sure to move them like everything depends on it.
We can ship a truck anywhere in the country, and just like your truck, we're as dependable as they come. When you're putting your work, sport, or family truck in our hands, expect a worry-free move and the best value out there.
How much does truck shipping cost?
For most people, the biggest factor when they're looking into shipping a truck is going to be cost, so we want to help our customers understand what kinds of things factor into the final price. The biggest factors that affect the cost of truck shipping include:
Make and model: With trucks, everyone knows that size matters. And when you need to ship it, that's especially true. Smaller pickups can fit on a typical multi-vehicle open carrier, but larger ones might require special handling.
Distance: Whether you're driving it or not, moving a truck from point A to point B takes fuel and drive time, so distance is a major factor in the price you'll end up paying.
Service and transport choices: Depending on which service level you choose and whether you need an open or enclosed vehicle carrier, rates are going to vary.
Time of year: Various seasonal changes mean different weather and road conditions. Snow and ice can shut down shipping lanes, so shipping a truck in the winter may cost a little more than during warmer months.
Pickup and delivery locations: Our carriers need a lot of room to load and unload, especially for a large truck. If we have to meet you somewhere or make special accommodations to pick up the truck, it can affect the overall price.
Timeframe: Do you need your truck there in a few days or a few weeks? How far ahead are you booking your move? We may be able to expedite the truck shipping process, but it's going to be cheaper if you plan in advance.
How are trucks transported?
One other choice you have when it comes to your truck is whether you want it shipped on an open or enclosed carrier. Open transports can carry a lot of vehicles at one time, making moves economical, and they offer the safety and reliability people depend on, making them the most common option for vehicle shipping.
With open carriers, your truck is not shielded from things like dirt and dust, road debris, and other elements encountered during normal transit. So if you're looking for an added layer of protection, opting for a fully enclosed trailer to ship your truck will keep you safeguarded on all fronts.

Frequently asked questions
Much like the cost of shipping, this one depends on a number of factors, chief among them – availability.
Most people choose to ship using open carriers, and for that to be economical, they need to be loaded with more than just one vehicle. Deliveries typically take a few days to a week, but if availability is low, it may take up to two weeks.
After you book with us, we'll send you an esimated delivery date for your truck based on the predicted travel time, but for the reason mentioned above, the exact delivery date and time may vary.
If you need to have your truck delivered on a very specific date, our logistics gurus can expedite your truck relocation and make that happen, just be aware that expedited truck shipping services cost more than standard.
As convenient as it would be for a lot of our customers, we can't ship vehicles with personal belongings inside. Our drivers are only licensed to move your truck, not other items – so we can't insure them against things like theft or damage. Transport carriers also have strict weight and balance requirements, and any extra cargo can throw them off and make them unsafe.
That means all tools and equipment, as well as other things like bed liners that aren't permanently attached, need to be removed and shipped separately. Basically, the truck needs to be shipped empty just like it came from the factory. Read more
