        Auto transportation services help many people moving to Sacramento. Students moving to Sactown to attend California State University or The Art Institute of California may not want to drive their car cross-country. Likewise, professionals starting new jobs with UC Davis Medical Center or the Sacramento Corrections Department have their vehicles shipped in time for their first day of work. Residents in neighborhoods such as River Park, Westlake and Gateway West often use auto transport services to move their exotic cars safely and avoid road damage.

        Finding a car shipping company in Sacramento, CA

        When looking for a car shipping company, start by getting several quotes to compare company prices. Most auto transportation companies allow customers to input basic information into an online form to receive an instant quote for transportation services. Some of the information you should expect to provide when requesting a quote includes:

        • Origin/destination: The total distance impacts how much you pay to ship your vehicle to or from the Sacramento area. Long-distance moves are more expensive because they take more time and resources.
        • Size/make/model of vehicle: Your cost is partially based on the vehicle you’re shipping. If you have an exotic car, a sports car, an RV or a boat, make sure the company you choose handles these types of moves.
        • Running or inoperable vehicle: A running car is much easier to transport than one that is inoperable. If your vehicle needs a tow, you pay more.
        • Date of trip: It’s best to schedule your auto transport as far ahead of time as possible. Booking in advance secures your shipping dates and often gets you a lower price. If you choose to wait, many companies offer an expedited service that gets your car to Sacramento in one to three days, depending on the starting point. Expect to pay a premium for expedited shipping, however.
        • Door-to-door vs. terminal-to-terminal: With door-to-door shipping, companies pick up your car from your old residence and deliver it to your new home. With terminal-to-terminal shipping, you drop your vehicle off at a central station where the auto transport company can pick it up and deliver it to a terminal near its destination. Door-to-door shipping is typically costlier than terminal-to-terminal.

        Before you choose an auto transport company, ask friends and family for referrals, check online reviews and carefully read each company's policies regarding shipment delays and damage during transport.

        How much does car transport cost in Sacramento?

        The average cost for auto transport in Sacramento is roughly $730. We broke down how much it costs to ship a small sedan to and from Sacramento and a few popular U.S. cities. These rates are based on a reservation made 45 days in advance and shipped on an open carrier.

        Average car transport cost to/from Sacramento

        FromToExpected cost
        Los AngelesSacramento$499
        New York CitySacramento$925
        SacramentoLas Vegas$511
        SacramentoNew York City$971

        Some additional factors that influence your final price include:

        • The time of year
        • Using an open carrier or enclosed carrier
        • The pickup location
        • Requesting door-to-door shipping
        • Shipping a specialty vehicle

        Students moving at the beginning of the school year pay more for auto transport since services during summer are in high demand. Residents in rural areas like Dixon and Roseville pay even more for door-to-door service because their locations take longer to reach from the central terminal. Expect higher prices to transport luxury cars, classic cars and specialty vehicles like motorcycles and RVs.

        Avoiding Consumer Scams

        When you hire an auto transport company, you're trusting a stranger with one of your most expensive possessions. It’s crucial to make sure the company you choose is licensed and bonded, has a U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) number and no history of fraud or consumer scams.
