How do I pay for my transport service?
You can choose to pay in full online as we accept all major credit cards and PayPal. You can also pay in cash at the time of delivery. If you choose to pay in cash, there is a small partial payment of $199 or less (depending on the distance of your shipment) when you place your order to secure your car's spot on a truck, however, we DO NOT ask for any up front deposit. Our reservation fee to secure truck space is only taken when our truck leaves the depot to pick up your vehicle. The reservation fee is simply to cover our costs to send our truck to the pick up point. BEWARE of companies asking for an up front deposit or credit card information.
Can I pay the full transport cost with my credit card?
Yes, you can. If you want to pay in full online you can do so at booking by choosing the Priority Rate. With this option, you can make a convenient, one-time payment with a credit or debit card, as well as through PayPal.

Do I have to pay the trucker if I am not fully satisfied with the auto transport service?
Yes, as specified by Federal Law, a trucker must be paid in full for services rendered. It is also in your best interest to pay the trucker in full.

If you experience any difficulties, don’t hesitate to contact us.
