We have years of experience moving cars and with a network of literally hundreds of carriers, we can get your car shipped from or to anywhere in the U.S. This includes Chicago. Chicago is the largest city in Illinois and a top car shipping location in the northern U.S. This means that there are almost always carriers running routes through Chicago, which means fast dispatch times and generally lower prices for your shipment. But there are still some things to know about Chicago auto transportation services and what to expect when you ship your vehicle.

What to Expect With Chicago Auto Transportation

Really, aside from the winter months, Chicago is pretty easy – and cheap – to ship to or from. During the spring and summer, when the industry is busiest, Chicago is a prime shipping location. With a population of over 2.7 million residents, it’s really not surprising. That’s a lot of potential customers. But during the winter months, routes tend to shift down south, so carriers can avoid the brutal northern winters. This results in a slight increase in prices into Chicago. At the same time, it can also result in lower prices for shipments coming out of Chicago. Talk to an agent about when you’re shipping to find the best deals.

More importantly, though, is that Chicago sits in a huge populated area. Not only is Chicago itself large, but it sits along I-90, and also close to major cities like Milwaukee, Springfield, Indianapolis, Columbus, Detroit, Cleveland, and more. So carriers are often running routes that take them either through Chicago or near it. This ease of access means they don’t have to spend as much to get from customer to customer, and therefore pass the savings on to you. Why? Because auto shipping is competitive around major shipping hubs, so they have to keep their prices low or other carriers will take their freight.

  • "Being a rather large SUV that needed shipped from California to Nebraska, there were a few challenges. The first truck that arrived refused to pickup the vehicle due to it's size. However, Mike worked diligently and within one week he had a hotshot lined up. The operators of the hotshot were incredibly communicative and accommodating. The vehicle arrived withing 3 days with no damage at all. Although there was the one hiccup, in the end the service received was top notch. I would be happy to ship with Mike in the future." - Miles/California
