New York

Auto transport service to New York City is a mixed bag. Our innovative car shipping quotes calculator makes it easier to determine an auto transport rate from anywhere to the Big Apple, but it cannot tell the whole story. We would like our quotes to advise, “Please don’t ship your car from Manhattan.” Ever been to Manhattan? It sure is exciting as there is nothing quite like it. Now imagine an auto transport carrier crawling down Fifth Avenue or 42nd Street competing with taxis for the right lane. Yeah, you get the picture. It is no fun for anyone. So would it kill you to go across the Washington Bridge and meet an auto shipper in New Jersey? That is the smartest thing to do. We highly recommend doing that so that your vehicle shipment can happen much faster, and probably much cheaper if you look to see a car shipping quote online from or to New Jersey.

Shipping a car is also easier to Staten Island, Brooklyn, Queens, Long Island, Yonkers or the Bronx than it is from or to Manhattan. The tolls become a bit of an issue because it can drive up the cost of shipping a vehicle, and frankly are a pain in the butt getting through them, but with so many other cars being shipped there it certainly benefits from economy of scale. So it is better to ship a car in the other boroughs than Manhattan. Except if you are transporting a vehicle to the far end of Long Island, such as Sag Harbor. To an auto shipper it feels like driving to England. We know, you can’t drive to England, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t feel like it.

Normally we say you can easily go to our website and get an instant car shipping quote and be done with it. But it might be a good idea to pick up the phone and call Direct Express Auto Transport customer service at 800-600-3750 and speak about a good plan for shipping your car to the New York City boroughs.
