When you choose to ship a car with Mayflower you are assigned a personal coordinator to help you process paperwork, scheduling, and billing every step of the way. Your coordinator will help you schedule your pickup, load and delivery times.
Mayflower handles various types of auto transportation.
If you select Mayflower's door-to-door car shipping service our driver will pick up and deliver your vehicle at your home or office if possible.
Mayflower only offers door-to-door car shipping service when it is permitted by local communities. If your neighborhood bans oversize vehicles from making deliveries, your Mayflower coordinator will inform you of alternative delivery methods.
Keep in mind, a Mayflower car carrier can be up to 75 feet long, so our drivers will need plenty of room to turn around. When access to your residence is restricted by narrow streets, low-hanging trees, speed bumps or tight corners, your coordinator may ask that you plan an alternative delivery site.
If you are looking for a little more flexibility, your shipping coordinator can share terminal-to-terminal shipping options. A local shipping terminal may provide you with more flexible drop-off and storage options.

Personal items are not allowed inside the vehicle during transport. Personal items are not inventoried and are not the responsibility of the carrier. Your Mayflower carrier is obligated to inspect the inside of your vehicle at the point of origin and is authorized to remove any belongings. When personal belongings are left inside a vehicle, the risk or damage, theft, loss or removal by roadside authorities increases.
Your delivery date is usually determined by distance. On average, Mayflower can deliver most domestic auto shipments in 8 to 10 business days. The delivery spread for your auto transport move will be clearly listed on your bill of lading.
Yes, Mayflower can accommodate many specialty shipping needs. To ensure that your vehicle’s special needs are considered, ask your shipping coordinator about the options available for protecting your high-value shipments.
Let your shipping coordinator know if your vehicle falls into one of the following categories:
We strongly recommend that you be there to accept your vehicle. If that is not possible you may have a trusted representative accept delivery. Please be aware that an inspection is performed and a contract bill of landing must be signed. Even though we don’t anticipate any damages to your vehicle, it is important for you to thoroughly inspect it and the bill of lading at both pickup and delivery.
Yes, your Mayflower shipping coordinator will help you set a firm deliver-by date and will work to accommodate your shipping schedule in every way possible. In the unlikely event of a delay beyond the late delivery date, your shipping coordinator will provide advanced notice and arrange for a rental vehicle.
It is requested that your car be filled one-quarter to one-half tank full, and no more. If the auto has more than half a tank of gas, this adds unnecessary weight to an auto carrier and may, in some cases, prevent loading if there are weight concerns.
Special equipment is required for automobiles that do not run. To ensure your transporter is prepared with the right car carrier and winches, let your shipping coordinator know the running condition of your car before booking auto transport.
Inoperable vehicles without an engine, brakes, wheels or steering are not eligible for standard car carrier service, but can be shipped via flatbed through Mayflower's Logistics division.
No, keys provided to the car carrier operator must be fully-functional and allow the driver total access to all vehicle compartments.
Open-sided auto transport is the preferred mode of transport for many car shippers. These carriers provide significant cost savings to both the carrier and customer.
Enclosed transport is assigned for high-value shipments to protect the vehicle from dust, debris, and weather. Enclosed transport is a good choice if you desire additional protection for a luxury or antique car.
