A coast to coast vehicle transport trip usually takes from 7 to 10 days. Shorter auto shipping trips can take from 1 to 7 days, depending on the distance. Traffic, DOT regulations, check points, weigh stations, inclement weather, truck breakdowns, seasonal fluctuations and other unforeseen events may delay the auto shipping of your vehicle. Pickup and delivery dates are estimated but are not guaranteed. If either your origination or destination locations are in a remote area, then you may consider meeting the driver in a nearby major city to increase your chances of shipping in a more timely fashion.
