Budget Transporter can ship your vehicle across the state or country, and the company’s auto tracking options let customers know where their vehicle is at all times

Many people looking for a trusted auto transporter are in the middle of a move. Budget Transporter assists with this as well and helps you find the best mover for the rest of your belongings.

Budget Transporter pricing

The cost to ship a car with Budget Transporter ranges between $500 and $1,200. The total transport price varies based on pickup and dropoff locations, time of year, type of shipping and other factors. You don’t have to pay anything until you’re matched with a carrier.

Budget Transporter charges more for expedited shipping or using an enclosed transport vehicle. The best way to avoid expedited shipping fees is to plan ahead and be flexible with your shipping dates. Enclosed shipping adds additional protection and is great for valuable vehicles and those with sentimental value, but the extra cost may not be worth it for everyone.

I called Budget after a different transport company gave me the runaround for over a week. Jaime had my car on a truck that night and delivered to me, 1500-miles away, within 2-days. Budget was responsive and I got a real person on the phone every time I called. Beware, of the OTHER COMPANIES. They under-quote their prices to get your business! These other companies are very responsive during the honeymoon. Then, when they can't find a driver to take the contract at their misquoted price, they disappear. The other company, rhymes with Load Dunner, dodged my calls, didn't reply to messages or texts, hung up after leaving me on eternal hold more than once. Both times that I used their online chat, they gave me vague answers, made excuses and refused to have someone call me.

    I can't speak highly enough of the service I received at Budget Transporter. Working with Danielle was as good an experience as I could have hoped for. From starting the process to the delivery of the car, everything went 100% smoothly. When I called Danielle, I was very frustrated and worried as I had signed up with another company. Because that company had offered to pay the difference between what they estimated my cost would be and what a driver would accept, my car just sat for almost a week with no offers from drivers. The company knew I was very stressed about a timely delivery and yet they told me it was because no drivers were going my route yet. This wasn't true!

    I called other companies and they said my car had no offers to be driven to Colorado, because I wasn't offering enough money. Both companies told me drivers were driving my route. Because Danielle was so honest and informed me about the whole procedure, I was ready to pay almost $300 more to have a timely delivery. The other company had not been honest even when they knew my car was just waiting in my driveway and they knew how stressed I was. They should have paid what they said they would or just broken their agreement and told me that I had to. I highly commend Danielle for her honesty and her customer service. She helped me every step of the way and my granddaughter's car was delivered on the day I had hoped for - in perfect condition and with seamless, honest and considerate service.

    I reached out to Danielle and she responded within the hour and found me a driver within one hour for the best price out of any other service. He picked my car up in the next hour and delivered my car in perfect condition from SoCal to South Florida within four days. She was available for check ins throughout the week as well. What’s also nice is you’re working with a small family business. I couldn’t ask for better service, highly recommend.

    I chose Budget Transportation because of their low cost and they had high ratings. I found out why they had such high rating when I used them. I dealt with Danielle and she was very professional. She kept in close contact with me during the process form the initial call until the car was delivered. I called on a Friday and the car was picked up on Monday. The driver was also very professional and called me the night before to let me know when he would be there. He also called that morning to give us an update on his arrival time and also called when he arrived. We were completely pleased with their service.

    I cannot say enough about Danielle’s service and responsiveness in my transport order #** Of my 66 Charger going from IL to MN. This was my first time transporting a car, and her expertise and patience made the process quite understandable and stress free (especially since we are also both selling and closing on a new home). Don’t hesitate to work with Budget, especially Danielle.

    I contacted Budget Transporter to inquire about transporting a new vehicle. I ended up using a different transporting company. I was then charge $200.00 on my credit card without my permission. I did NOT use their services. They're dishonest - thankfully I saw their fraudulent charge on my credit card statement. I would stay clear of Budget Transporter!!!

    We worked with Danielle at Budget to schedule the transport of our family van across states. She explained the entire process and cared about our experience. Jerome was our driver and hand-delivered the van to my father ahead of schedule. Best overall experience.

    We shipped our vehicle from new Hampshire to Arizona. The vehicle arrived in six days, without incident or damage. The process was smooth and hassle free. Everyone was easy to work with. Both driver I dealt with were very friendly and professional. Well Done!

    This being our first time to ship a car halfway across the country, we were put at ease by our broker Danielle, who explained the process thoroughly, set us up with reliable drivers, and kept an open communication with us the entire time. The transport was very quick, the drivers were personable, polite and professional, delivering our car safely.

    After 2 weeks of false promises to pick up the truck from another company I finally called Budget transport after being recommended by a friend. In 2 days Jamine had a driver to pickup my grandson's truck from California to Georgia, In 3 days the truck was picked up. The driver kept his promises on pick up and delivery and answered all my texts and emails in a timely fashion. My grandson arrived from Germany to his truck. I would highly recommend Budget transportation for peace of mind..

    After dealing with several shady companies I found 3 things with Jaime at Budget Transport: Honesty, respectfulness and execution. They were a real pleasure to work with wing to wing - in an industry that has many questionable characters, my experience, Budget is one you can count on to get the job done right. Highly recommend.

    I stupidly went with another company first and their lack of response (in any way, shape or form) had me very worried. I immediately cancelled and found Budget Transporter. After seeing the praise from customers, the BBB and Consumer Protection, I called. I spoke to Jaime **. He was amazing and went over everything with me. I had a deadline and he made sure it was met. His kindness and professionalism had me deeply assured everything was going to be alright. That kind of confidence and assurance is priceless. I would recommend Jaime and Budget transporters to anyone.

    We had a bit of a timing issue at the beginning due to the Memorial Day Weekend but they did everything they could to get the car to us ASAP. It arrived a day before scheduled and was in immaculate condition. Reasonably priced. Overall very satisfied.

    As someone new to transporting a vehicle we had many questions and concerns. Budget was more than accommodating and responsive. All calls and emails were answered in a timely, if not immediate, manner. We felt very comfortable in our choice and would definitely use again or recommend budget to friends and or relatives. Our point of contact was Jamie. He was awesome. Thank you.

    We shipped a vehicle from a residential location in NC to a residential location in NY. Only one hiccup and it was handled very professionally and to our satisfaction. Pickup was made on time and delivery was as well. Would highly recommend this company, and especially Jaime.

    My car was picked up nearby, at exactly the time the driver said it would be, and traveled across the country. It arrived there on time, and my son was able to easily arrange to pick it up from the driver. And it was in perfect condition! The whole process could not have been smoother and easier.

    Thank you, everybody, at Budget Transport. We thought we would be able to do this move on our own but it was just impossible. We put our request online and immediately started to get calls. Most of the companies we spoke to were way out of our budget not even in the ballpark. I am so impressed with the whole move.

    I used Budget Transport to ship a vehicle I purchased from out of state. They immediately quoted me a price for shipping the vehicle and that was it, no hidden fees. They gave me an estimated time frame for pick-up and delivery and I received the vehicle in that time frame. Without hesitation I would use Mike if I need a vehicle shipped in the future.

    Ms ** and her crew are awesome and customer service oriented. From the beginning till the delivery of my daughter's car it was smooth, and excellent customer service. Even when my daughter missed her scheduled time, Ms ** was able to make sure that another dispatcher went and pick up her car. We received the car in less than 7 days. Their amount is more reasonable than other Companies. You worth more than 5 stars, keep up the good work.

    The gents at Budget Transport did a great job in transporting my car after I sold it through E-Bay. I communicated with them and they handled everything in a very professional manner. The price he quoted me was exactly what I ended up paying. There was no funny business! I would definitely recommend using Budget Transport anytime you need to ship a car.

    Fantastic experience from start to finish getting my car from coast to coast (in only 4 days!!). It was super easy to work with, and kept me in the loop throughout the entire process. The price I was quoted upfront was the price I paid. Finding a broker to transport my car was difficult, but I'm very happy I went with Budget Transport.

    My car was successfully delivered to my new apartment by the help of Budget Transport some days ago. It's a pleasure to realize that they provide door to door service with no deposits, most companies ask for upfront fee, so the next time will ship with them, for sure. I would love to recommend you all this company too.

    Budget Transport show excellent work on transporting my car. I am happy because the car was delivered at the appointed time. True, it was a little dirty after the transportation, but that's my fault, because I ordered an open trailer. And I am satisfied with the work of the company and the driver of the carrier.
