shipping

Asked by GuruBVW3L Dec 25, 2018 at 10:12 AM about the 1976 BMW 2002

Question type: General

I have a car listed on Car Gurus.  I think you can arrange for shipping.  I was wandering how much it might cost to ship my 1976 BM from Tucson to Michigan (Lansing, probably).  Knowing the price, even approximately, would help in my negotiations.  Thanks for any help.

You can get online quotes for car shipping, just Google the term. But be forewarned, any email you register with these brokers is going to be spammed for the next two years, so make up a throwaway email account. A single car like yours might cost on the low end 300 to 400 to ship that far and can take a few weeks (or longer) to book. On the high end, upwards of a thousand. Even higher if you want to ship it in an enclosed trailer.

Ken is correct that you'll want to be careful entering your email and contact information online but as a shipping broker myself (with Beacon Shipping Logistics) I feel a need to defend the honest among us in this industry. There is a subtle but real difference between shipping brokers and online services that provide shipping quotes. One way to check on this is to search for a DOT and/or MC number. Reputable shipping brokers will have these but a service that just sells off your info may not (hopefully I'm not giving them the idea to start doing so). A good shipping broker is a feather in your cap and someone on your side during a transport. We do the background safety checks on drivers and their trucks, make sure their insurance is current and often add additional coverage, we're there to guide you through the process keep you informed and most importantly perhaps, a good shipping broker will be there as a guide and a fail-safe should a vehicle arrive with a scratch or any damages. Those sites online that just sell off people info definitely do exist but there are not shipping brokers they're email and personal information sellers and in my opinion, invaders of privacy.
