Here’s how to ship your vehicle from California to Texas with Lightning Car Transport:

Step 1: Get a Quote

The first step is to get a quote from Lightning Car Transport. You can do this by filling out our online quote form or by calling us directly. We will need some basic information about your vehicle, such as the make and model, as well as the pickup and delivery locations.

Step 2: Choose Your Shipping Method

We offer two types of shipping methods: open and enclosed transport. Open transport is the most common and affordable method. Your car would be transported on an open trailer with other vehicles. Enclosed transport is more expensive but offers more protection for your car, as it will be transported in an enclosed trailer.

Step 3: Schedule Pickup

Once you have chosen your shipping method, you can schedule your pickup date. We recommend scheduling your pickup at least a week in advance to ensure that we can accommodate your preferred date. We offer door-to-door pickup and delivery, meaning that we will come directly to your home or office to pick up your car.

Step 4: Prepare Your Vehicle

Before your car is picked up, you should prepare it for transport. This includes removing all personal items from your car and ensuring that your gas tank is less than a quarter full. You should also take photos of your car before it is loaded onto the trailer. If you can, wash your vehicle before pick up so the driver can properly mark all pre-existing damages or scratches.

Step 5: Track Your Shipment

Once your car is on its way, you can track your shipment through your designated shipping agent. We will also provide you with regular updates on the status of your shipment.

Step 6: Receive Your Delivery

When your car arrives in Texas, we will notify you and schedule a delivery date. We offer door-to-door delivery, as long as we can legally and physically enter the pick up and delivery addresses. If not, we can schedule pick up or delivery just outside the neighborhood. Larger areas such as Target or Walmart can work well for pick up and delivery too!
