Transporting your vehicle to or from California

California has so much to offer—glorious weather, quintessential dining, iconic beaches and a relaxed culture that makes it easy to enjoy it all. The climate is one of the main draws to California, but temperatures vary more than you think. Coastal areas are generally warm almost all year while the Central Valley can hit highs in the 90s in the summer and the mid 50s in the winter.

With nearly 300 state and national parks, stunning coastlines and plenty of urban hot spots, thousands of retirees, seasonal travelers, vacationers, families and business professionals come to California every year. Many people bring their vehicles to better explore the state. It’s easier and more affordable than you may think to transport your car to California and it even offers surprising benefits!

What to consider when shipping a car in California

What is your origin city? What type of vehicle are you shipping? What trailer options are best? There are several factors to consider when transporting your car to or from California. Find out more about how car transport works now.

You may also consider leveraging the expertise of an auto transport broker. A reputable broker offers personalized service and works with you through every step of your vehicle’s move. To spot a quality broker, look for positive customer reviews—the more the better! Also take into account how long the company has been in business, if they have a large and reliable network of auto carriers, have a top rating from the Better Business Bureau and hold the proper industry licenses.
