        Portland is one of the greenest, healthiest and most sustainable cities in America. Young adults and families relocate to Portland because of its myriad local shops and boutiques in neighborhoods like the Pearl District. Nature lovers relocate to Portland for the hundreds of miles of nearby trails, including Lower Macleay Park and Wildwood Trail, and renowned ski resorts like Mt. Hood Meadows and Teacup Lake.

        Regardless of why you’re moving to or from Portland, hiring an auto transport company is an easy way to make sure your vehicle gets shipped to its destination on time and in good condition.

        How to choose an auto transport company in Portland, OR

        When selecting a car shipping company in Portland, start by asking friends and family for recommendations. Then try reading online reviews to get a sense of each transporter's reliability and customer service.

        Before you compare quotes, consider:

        • The kind of carrier and delivery service you want
        • Your time frame for delivery
        • Whether you need any special accommodations, such as for an inoperable vehicle or an expensive exotic car

        Once you have these specifics, use them to get and compare quotes from different auto transport companies in Portland and choose the one with the best price and terms.

        Auto transport company laws and regulations 

        Before you put down a deposit, make sure the company you’ve chosen is legitimate. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration advises consumers to protect themselves from fraud by checking the MC docket number of auto transport brokers and carriers. Carriers also need a U.S. Department of Transportation number and must be able to provide proof of insurance upon request.

        Portland car shipping costs

        The overall average cost of car transport to or from Portland ranges from $500 to $1,200. The chart below shows what you can expect to pay when shipping an operable, midsize sedan in an open carrier with 45 days’ notice.

        Multiple factors may affect the price of vehicle shipping to and from Portland, including: 

        • Your vehicle’s size and weight
        • The type of carrier used
        • The delivery method (door-to-door versus terminal-to-terminal shipping)

        For instance, millennials moving to popular neighborhoods like Alberta Arts District or Nob Hill might opt for terminal-to-terminal shipping because it’s a budget-friendly delivery option that keeps the transport price low. However, people with classic or luxury cars moving into Portland’s upscale neighborhoods, like Lake Oswego and Forest Park, often opt for door-to-door shipping and enclosed carriers, which significantly add to the cost.

        Portland auto transport FAQ

        How do I ship a motorcycle from Portland?
        Most car shipping companies in Portland provide motorcycle transport. Although shipping a bike is mostly the same as transporting a car, make sure your auto shipping company has experience with motorcycles and ask about specific safety precautions.
        How long does it take to ship a car from Portland?
        Carriers cover an average of 300 to 500 miles per day, but unfavorable weather, poor road conditions and heavy traffic slow drivers down significantly. If you’re in a rush, look for an auto transport company in Portland that offers expedited shipping.
        How far in advance should I schedule my car shipping from Portland?
        Scheduling policies differ between car transport companies in Portland. Some let you schedule as few as three days in advance, while others prefer you to schedule at least two weeks before shipping. Ask your auto transport company about expedited transport if you need an urgent pickup.
        What do I do if my vehicle is damaged in transit from Portland?
        Note any damage on the bill of lading before signing off on your car’s drop-off. If the auto transport company doesn’t process the claim or reimburse you to your satisfaction, you can file a report with the FMCSA.
        Can I pack my car with my belongings?
        Most auto transport companies in Portland aren't licensed to carry household goods, so you generally can’t pack your car with belongings. However, a few shipping companies allow you to load a certain amount of personal items in the vehicle. Check with your car shipping company for guidelines and restrictions. Keep in mind that an auto transport company's insurance won’t cover these possessions.
