I want to ship my STi I left at home sitting in the garage just wanting me to drive it. Has anyone shipped before? I know it can be expensive but one big reason why I didnt drive it cross country is mileage I dont want to have high milage on my car a sti with low miles looks good and my travel expenses would almost be 1k almost what shipping cost lets admit it guys we dont have civics our cars can guzzle gas. Anyways any recommendations? Also be glad get in your wrx/sti and be happy cause u can mine is too far away and I want to drive it really bad.
Just as a rough estimate I know a few guys who have spent upwards of $800 to put a vehicle on a flatbed and have it delivered across state lines. Your description didn't say where you are trying to ship your vehicle to or from, if it has to be shipped across water or if you plan on putting it in a steel container.
With that information I can give you a better estimate but at this point I would look for auto movers on Google. their prices will vary depending on how far you need to go, if you want your car shipped in a container or on an open flatbed, and your pickup and delivery instruction.
Thats alot of money for "I want to take my car for a joy ride" but if you are planning on staying where you are then its not so crazy.
Ya I want to ship it on a open container I just hope there a good company not scratch my car and say it wasn't me. But I live in utah and I love to georgia and I do need my car here for work im using my in laws car my original plan was to fly back home and get it drive it back here but if shipping cost almost the same or close saving those extra miles are worth it. Thanks
Usual way is to put your car into a moving truck. They contract several customers in your area going to your destination area and from there onto the next location (so it's 1 way all the time). Cost is related to how much weight and how much space. Roughly $3 a mile is a ballpark number. Yes, it's probably cheapest to take a bus/plane to your car and drive it back.
