How to Ship A Car

RunBuggy for Car Haulers

Shipping a Car Is Not as Hard or Expensive As You Think…

With RunBuggy, we make shipping cars fast, easy and smart.

If you’re reading this post you may not have any experience shipping a car. Not to worry. We’ll show you have easy and inexpensive it can be.

The first step most people take when shipping a car is to research their options. Unfortunately, this can take a lot of valuable time and they may end up more confused than when they started. Fortunately, RunBuggy has screened all of our more than 6,000 nationwide transporters and confirmed they have the proper licensing and insurance. This will save you a ton of time and gives you the confidence your car will be safe and sound.

The next step is to get a quote. Since you probably want to know how much shipping your car will cost, most people will ask for quotes from the transport companies. Unfortunately, these quotes may not include the broker fees, tolls, or any other surcharges for the particular car being shipped. With RunBuggy, you can see how much it costs to ship your car instantly, and the price you see is the price you pay. And best of all, you won’t pay a dime until your car shows up. No cutting checks or handing cash over to a transporter before your car arrives.

Once you’re good with the price, you will place an order to have your car picked up. With RunBuggy, you simply tell us where to pick-up your car, where and when you want it delivered and the VIN of the car you’re shipping – that’s it. We take it from there. After your order is placed, you’ll see the transport company that will be hauling your car, know exactly when it will be picked up and communicate with the driver directly, via text or phone, to arrange the specifics.

Your driver is required to take multiple pictures of your car at pick-up and delivery so there should be no confusion around the condition of your car. In addition, you can see where your car is en route – just like you do today when you’re waiting for a package to arrive. Think of RunBuggy as the Amazon of car shipping.

Once your car arrives, your driver will hand you the keys. You can inspect the car to make sure there’s no damage and if everything looks good – that’s it. No need to worry about paying the driver – that’s already taken care of. You can take your car and go where you need to go. If you do have any issues, you can contact your RunBuggy concierge at 888.872.8449 or and they help take care of you and your car.
