While electric cars are great for areas with lots of available charging stations, driving them across the country can prove difficult if you don’t have a route available with lots of dedicated charging stations along the way.
In the case that there just aren’t enough chargers to make the journey yourself or that you’d rather not drive it at all, you’ll need to hire a vehicle transport company.
Thankfully the process of shipping an electric car is not much different than any other car, but you may incur extra fees as electric cars tend to be heavier than gas-powered cars. The company may also need to take extra precautions to ensure the safety of your car in transit due to the sensitive nature of EVs lithium-ion batteries.
Car shipping companies have their own insurance to cover your car while it’s being transported, but it’s not a bad idea to have a comprehensive insurance policy anyway.
