Stellar performance from start to finish.
Awesome experience, and will surely use again.Steve F.
I found my dream car online, a mint 1996 Porsche 911. I purchased from a seller in Houston, TX and needed it shipped via enclosed carrier to Seattle, WA. I was a little nervous, but after vetting quite a few companies I decided on Patriot. Excellent choice as it went off without a hitch. Thank you, Patriot!Fred L.
Frequently asked questions about our los angeles auto transport services
Can I ship my vehicle from LA to any location?
Our experienced team can help ship your vehicle to any location nationwide. Whether you’re moving to the East Coast from the West Coast, vice versa, or in-between we can assist you!
How do I pay for auto shipping?
Upon contacting us and providing your specific auto transport details, we will prepare a quote based on that information. We will provide that to you for your review pressure-free, and without obligation. We provide easy-to-pay invoicing accepting all major credit cards for the initial payment. We will send a digital invoice to your email initially, and then the balance, the bulk of it, would be rendered in the form of certified funds at delivery.
How do I get updates on my vehicle's relocation?
Once scheduled, and on the pickup side of your shipment, you will initially be notified from us via email (typically 6-24 hours notice via email) with a more narrowed down schedule. After that, and as the truck draws closer to the pickup location dispatch or the driver will call you to provide an updated estimated time of arrival (depending on traffic as well as prior pickup and drop-offs this estimate may change based on real-time occurrences). Upon delivery, you will receive a call from dispatch or the driver once the estimated time of arrival can be gauged.
Can I ship personal items in my vehicle?
Before shipping your vehicle, all personal items must be removed from inside in order for us to properly relocate your vehicle from point A to point B. This is for liability reasons, and per the USDOT. The only items that may remain in your vehicle are a spare tire, jack, jumper cables and child safety seats.
Is any paperwork required for shipping to or from LA?
We require no additional paperwork from the customer’s side in order to transport your vehicle. However, you will need to execute the Bill of Lading on both pickup and delivery (it's an inspection document of your vehicle's condition). Simply let us know the specifications of your shipment, and we will prepare a quote for your review.
Will my car be exposed to any elements?
Your vehicle is insured under the trucks cargo insurance from driver error, accident, fire, for examples... However, Acts of God (weather and the elements) as well as road debris are not covered under the trucks cargo insurance (this refers mainly to chips in the paint, and/or cracks/chips in the windshield or windows) as your vehicle will be subject to the outside environment. For added protection, please inquire about enclosed shipping if this is of concern.
When I ship a car to/from Los Angeles, is the service door-to-door?
"Door-to-Door", means the driver gets as close to your specified addresses as legally, safely and physically reasonable as there are a number of restraints on the large trucks, especially within cities, along some coastal regions, or in mountainous / hilly terrain. You may have to meet the driver on a side street, at a shopping plaza, or off a major roadway in the area if deemed inaccessible. The driver will determine this on approach and suggest a safe meeting spot close by if applicable.
Whether you’re looking to relocate a vehicle from LA to NYC, Los Angeles to Chicago, or just on the opposite side of the state we are happy to assist. We provide free auto shipping quotes based on your shipment criteria.
What's the cost to ship a vehicle to or from LA?
The exact cost of shipping a vehicle to LA depends on a variety of different factors, such as the make and model of your vehicle as well as any special requirements you might have. The end destination will also be a factor on the final price. Contact us today for more information and a free quote on transporting your vehicle from LA.
