I finally found the perfect used car but it was 800 miles away!! I contacted Julie Sharpe and she took care of everything perfectly! The car was shipped quickly with a professional carrier and it arrived in perfect condition the next day. Julie at Nations guided me through every step and ensured that my new used car would be in great hands. Their price was fair and there were no additional costs — what they quoted was what I paid. And I paid Nations directly so there were no unexpected surprises when the carrier arrived at my house. I highly recommend Nations for honest and seamless delivery of your auto!!

When deciding whether to ship your car or drive it to a destination, several important factors come into play. The choice you make depends on your individual circumstances and preferences. Here are some key considerations to help you decide:

  1. Distance: The distance between your current location and your destination is a crucial factor. If it's a long-distance move, shipping might be a more practical and time-saving option.

  2. Time Constraints: Consider your timeline. Driving a long distance can take days or even weeks, while car shipping can provide a more predictable and efficient schedule.

  3. Fuel Costs: Calculate the cost of fuel for a long road trip, including gas, tolls, and accommodations. Depending on the distance, this can add up significantly.

  4. Vehicle Condition: If your car is in excellent condition and you want to minimize wear and tear, shipping may be the better choice. Long drives can put stress on your vehicle and increase maintenance costs.

  5. Driving Comfort: Think about your comfort during a long drive, including factors like driving fatigue, meals, rest breaks, and overnight stops. Shipping can avoid the physical and mental toll of driving.

  6. Weather Conditions: Consider the weather along your route. Driving through extreme weather conditions can be challenging and even dangerous, while shipped cars are protected from the elements.

  7. Personal Preferences: Some people enjoy road trips and see them as an adventure, while others prefer the convenience and peace of mind of car shipping.

  8. Time Spent on the Road: Consider the value of your time. If you have a busy schedule or need to be at your destination quickly, car shipping might be the better option.

  9. Vehicle Type: The type of vehicle you own matters. Larger or specialty vehicles might be more expensive to ship, and some may not even be eligible for certain shipping methods.

  10. Accommodations and Meals: Factor in the cost of accommodations and meals on a long road trip, as well as the time required to plan and make these arrangements.

  11. Wear and Tear: Driving long distances can put a significant amount of wear and tear on your car, potentially decreasing its resale value.

  12. Shipping Costs: Get quotes from various car shipping companies and compare them to your estimated driving expenses to determine which option is more cost-effective.

  13. Insurance: Confirm the insurance coverage provided by your chosen car shipping company and compare it to your own car insurance. Ensure your vehicle is adequately protected during transit.

  14. Personal Belongings: If you need to transport personal belongings along with your vehicle, consider how you'll handle this. Some car shipping companies have restrictions on the contents of the vehicle.

  15. Destination Logistics: Research the logistics at your destination. If it's a remote location or challenging to access, car shipping might be a more convenient choice.

Ultimately, the decision between car shipping and driving depends on your priorities, budget, and circumstances. Weigh these factors carefully to make the choice that best suits your needs and preferences.
