How do car shipping companies work?

I'm planning on moving to New York. While I'll be bringing my car with me, I don't want to drive it there. How does a car shipping company work?

Answer
Road trips aren’t for everyone, so It’s smart to do the research on something like this beforehand!
The process for car shipping can be broken down into a few steps. You’ll first want to visit an auto transport broker, who can find you a car transporter company. After finding a company, the broker, customer, and transporter must come to an agreement on price.
Prices often fluctuate based on the company, car, distance, and cost of fuel, so determining a price in advance is important. Once the price is finalized, the car is scheduled to ship and makes it way to its destination!
As you’ll be moving to New York, be sure to let your car insurance company know. Rates vary depending on where you live, so you could see a change in your rate once you update your address.
