    About King of the Road

    King of the Road is a licensed, bonded and insured auto transport broker that connects consumers with drivers who haul vehicles across a state, region or country. Every King of the Road carrier is licensed, bonded and insured. King of the Road offers discounts to members of the military, students, senior citizens and repeat clients. Classic cars or any other car requiring extra protection can be shipped using enclosed shipping.

    King of the Road cost

    King of the Road costs varies based on several factors, such as condition of the car, size of the vehicle and type of shipping. For example, transports that run along the interstate highway system, mile for mile, will be cheaper than one that is largely through a rural area. King of the Road requires no upfront payment from customers and isn’t needed until your vehicle is being shipped.

    Supply and demand on a route also affect the cost to ship with King of the Road, such as choosing a route during snowbird season. The cost to ship a sedan from Florida to the Northeast during the early summer will likely cost $900 to $1000 because of the popularity of this route; however, the cost to ship from the Northeast to Florida the same time of year might fall between $600 and $700. For this reason, if you’re trying to save money with a King of the Road shipment, try to plan your move during the offseason. A King of the Road representative will be happy to discuss with you more if you have any questions on costs.

    Make sure to ask about discounts when requesting a quote. Additional fees may be required for expedited shipping. Modified or inoperable vehicles require additional handling fees.

    King of the Road shipping options

    King of the Road auto transport ships to all 48 contiguous states, Hawaii, Alaska, Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, Canada and many other countries around the world. King of the Road is also able to handle all types of vehicles, including sedans, SUVs, pickups and oversized equipment. They have enclosed transport options for classic cars, luxury vehicles or just for added safety.

    The quotes provided by King of the Road are for door-to-door transport, but they can arrange for terminal transports if desired. King of the Road requires all drivers to be insured as required by the FMCSA and offer additional gap coverage as a registered AFta Agent.

    King of the Road shipping process

    King of the Road provides a free quote for customers after providing basic information like vehicle details and the route needed. If you have specific needs, like closed shipping, you can discuss this further with a King of the Road representative and see how your quoted rate will change. Once King of the Road has collected the necessary information, they will provide a contract for their service. Then, they will schedule the carrier and provide the necessary information to the customer and the driver who will be hauling the vehicle. King of the Road keeps customers updated throughout the transport via phone, email, or text. Drivers provide inspections on pick up and delivery. Multiple payment options are available.

    Do we recommend King of the Road?

    We recommend King of the Road for a number of reasons. First, their ability to ship a wide range of vehicles to almost anywhere in the world. They also provide convenient tracking options that let customers know where their vehicle is every step of the transport. Plus, King of the Road has a long list of discounts that help keep the cost down. Finally, their door-to-door shipping makes pickup and dropoff convenient.

    Overall extremely satisfied with service. This was the first time I shipped a car. I submitted several quotes and got crushed with emails, text messages, and phone calls from a lot of providers. I ended up settling on King of the Road and I'm glad I did. Andrew walked me through everything from quotes to settling on a carrier. I had some timing restrictions and everyone worked around them. The carrier actually arrived much earlier than expected but Andrew helped me and my son the recipient of the car navigate some of the logistics with the carrier. I was high maintenance and called a lot. Andrew or anyone who picked up my call was extremely polite and made sure I was comfortable with each step. Also their general communication was clear, concise, and targeted to my needs. Would use again and recommend.

    I highly recommend King of the Road transport. My contact, Josh ** was so easy to work with and responded and answered my questions and concerns quickly. The company they found, Treasure State Transport was also great. They make sure the company they find for you is reliable and dependable and they were! I will be using King of the Road transport for any future transactions! I also felt their fee was in line with all the work they put into making sure your transport is the best!

      King of the Road is one of the best car carrier company I have worked with. Alex is the best customer/logistics specialist. She went beyond her effort just to give me the best quote and driver to ship Land Rover Defenders from Baltimore to Michigan. She kept on giving me updates when needed. Really, the best! If you want a smooth and fast transaction, King of the Road is highly recommended.

      Was transporting a car from Alabama to Virginia. The rate was reasonable the timeframe was excellent. They even called me the day before to let me know that they would be delivering it early at 7 o’clock and we were able to work out a slightly better time. The driver called me that morning to let me know his delivery time. I was also very glad that this company did not harass me constantly wanting me to utilize them. They emailed me and they called me once and then they left me alone and I was able to make an informed decision from that until I wanted to talk to them. I will say that I would recommend this company.

      A job well done. Alex is excellent at scheduling. She found a great trucker at a great price. Everything went as planned, on time and for the price quoted. No surprises. Would definitely use again.

      I talked with 3 providers and selected King of the Road. Claire was knowledgeable and follow-up as promised. Andrew followed-up as well. I was pleased with the driver they contracted. He was responsive and was on schedule. I would work with them again.

      I chose King of the Road Transport due to some good reviews. Unfortunately, I had a bad experience that cost me a lot of money. There was damage done to my vehicle underneath my my car during the transport. Oil pan was punctured, control arm was bent, oil filter broke off and all plastic protectors under car were ripped off. It was actually delivered that way, including oil spilling as they unloaded it. Bad experience. Customer service was even worse.

      We have moved our car, to and from California and Indiana, four times. Communications is the key to success and Claire is simply the best! If you don't warm-up to her accent, you will be missing a bunch. Great service!
