About eShip

eShip is a licensed and bonded auto transport broker, and all of its carriers are fully insured and bonded. Because eShip is a broker, this means they work with you to find an appropriate carrier for your needs. Door-to-door transport, where a vehicle is picked up at your preferred address and dropped off at an exact endpoint, is the most common type of transportation offered by eShip. eShip guarantees that every driver they work with is insured. If not, eShip will pay for any uncovered damage.

eShip transports vehicles to all 50 U.S. states as well as Canada and Puerto Rico.

eShip cost

The average cost to ship a car with eShip is $500 according to their website, but this will vary based on factors like the season, car, route and exact dates. Expect shipping to cost more if you opt for enclosed shipping, which adds protection to your vehicle. To save money, it helps to schedule auto transport as far in advance as possible.

eShip’s complimentary Platinum Protection Plan offers a damage free guarantee. If any damage to the vehicle isn’t covered by the carrier’s insurance, eShip will pay for the repairs. This plan also offers rental reimbursement of up to $300 under most circumstances if your vehicle is more than 48 hours late. No upfront deposit is required to reserve a spot with eShip — you only need to pay once your vehicle has been shipped.

eShip transport options

eShip can perform both open and enclosed transport. Open transport is cheaper, but enclosed transport is a good choice for classic or otherwise highly valuable cars as it protects vehicles from the elements.

eShip has the following pickup and dropoff options: door-to-door, door-to-terminal and terminal-to-door. Pickup or drop off at a terminal may be a solution if shipping to a location is difficult to access.

eShip highlights:

  • Licensed and bonded
  • Insured carriers
  • Open and enclosed transport options
  • Rental reimbursement plan
  • Door-to-door shipping

eShip shipping process

Each eShip customer is given a personal logistics coordinator for the entire shipment process. The average time eShip takes to pick up a car and drop it off from coast to coast is seven to 10 days. From the coast to the Midwest, it takes from three days to a week.

Most cross-country auto transports are completed on an eight-to-10-car carrier. Shorter shipments are typically done on two-to-three car carriers. eShip has representatives available seven days a week for customers who want to track the status of their vehicle.

eShip FAQ

Can eShip transport my motorcycle?

Yes. eShip doesn’t just haul cars. In addition to motorcycles, the company can transport RVs, trucks, boats and classic or exotic cars.

Does eShip have insurance?

Yes. Each auto transport from eShip comes with a Platinum Protection Plan that guarantees eShip pays for any damage not covered by the carrier.

Does eShip have tracking?

Yes. You can call eShip and speak to a representative to inquire about the location of your vehicle.

Do we recommend eShip?

We recommend eShip for their reliability and their unique Platinum Protection Plan, which covers the unlikely case of unexpected damages and provides rental reimbursement in the case a vehicle arrives late. We also like that they ship motorcycles, trucks, RVs, boats and classic cars in addition to regular automobiles. Their commitment to customer service and clear communication makes them a good choice for shipping a vehicle domestically.

Original review: May 9, 2023

I have shipped my child's car to/from the west coast and back to our home and all three trips were easy to set up/schedule. The staff has been outstanding and answers any question(s) that I have had along the way. Very professionally run company and it has been a very "no stress" way to move my child's car since I have no worries from the time it gets picked up until its arrival. I HIGHLY recommend eShip as I will use them again anytime I need to move my car or other family cars and I will highly recommend them to anyone who needs car(s) transported.

    Becky J. from e-ship found Mike from Total Auto LLC to ship my Corvette and 55 Chrysler wagon from Santa Ana California to Arizona. I was nervous hearing shipping stories that are out there. My shipping experience was done professionally by these two people and I couldn't be more pleased. I don't know them but they took good care of me and my cars. Thank you both.

    I am overall happy with my experience with eShip. Jonathan was very helpful and always responded to my texts in a timely manner. The one thing that I wish would have been different was that I never once was contacted by the actual transporter, like I was told in my order email. I was completely in the dark on the whole thing, besides my friend where the car was being picked up from, letting me know that it had been picked up and was on its way to me. The driver was friendly and efficient with the unloading.

    Our Eship experience was great, our representative Joanna P. took time to answer all my initial questions and was prompt to reply to my numerous follow up emails. Once a carrier was found, Joanna contacted me and we had it all set up in a matter of minutes. The driver, George, was also in immediate contact with us once he was assigned. Pick up and drop off of the car went perfect and the car made it to New Mexico in 2 1/2 days.

    I had booked another car carrier months ago for my cross country move and they did not follow through when it was time to go. I was scrambling to find a new one with a couple days left. I received a call from Jonathan with eShip, and within 20 minutes he found me a driver! My car was picked up with 0 hassles and it arrived in 6 days My driver was awesome and the dispatch from the company was amazing with communication. A really great experience all around. Such a relief.

    Please give Carolyn 5 Stars for getting this move done during a busy time for truckers. Will be back again in Fall for help in Florida return. Will be asking for Carolyn. This is 3 or 4 years you have helped me out.

    This was the second time we used Carolyn at eShip to ship our vehicle. She gave us excellent service both of these times. She is very reliable and always returned my calls in a timely manner. Will definitely be using her again. Everything went smoothly both times. Thank you!

    Eship always is a great company. They are punctual and always deliver on time. I have transported 3 cars through them so far. They will remain my company of choice. Great prices is cherry on the cake!! The online process of booking is seamless. The drivers always arrive within the agreed window and deliver on time. No idea how they are so awesome!!

    I’ve used EShip many times. All with the same excellent service. They call a few days before as well as on the day of pick up. The same holds true when the car is being delivered. I’ve also recommended them to my family and friends, again all with the same excellent service.
