Easy Auto Ship is a vehicle transport company located in Youngstown, OH. The company offers services for vehicles, boats, RVs, and other vehicles. Like other major carriers, the company also offers several different shipping options for cars, so it’s possible to ship in an enclosed trailer, on an open truck, or even by ship to an international location.
Easy Auto Ship’s rates are affordable and straightforward. They will, however, vary greatly, depending on the size, type, and weight of the vehicle, the distance, the time of year, and on how quickly you need the vehicle to arrive.
You will need to contact Easy Auto Ship to get an instant quote for car shipping. The company also offers services for boats, RVs, and heavy equipment. Easy Auto Ship takes your credit card info at this point, but doesn’t charge the deposit until a driver is assigned.
Schedule your shipment. You can book online or can call the company to book over the phone. At this point, your card is charged for the necessary deposit.
Once a driver has been assigned to your job, the company will notify you that your shipment is ready for pickup and will schedule the necessary times.
When it’s time for the delivery, you (or the person you ship to) and the driver will perform an inspection of the vehicle and note any damage or changes that occurred during shipping. Your card will be charged for the remainder of your shipping balance at this time.
The company will reach out to confirm that the shipment went as planned.
Easy Auto Ship offers a quick way to obtain a quote on its website, but be prepared with information on where you’re shipping from and to, as well as specifics on the vehicle’s make, model, and year. A few clicks later, Easy Auto Ship will give you two quotes: A discounted cash price that reflects payment via check, money order, or other funds, and an easy pay price, which can be paid via credit card or PayPal.
Like all other shipping companies, Easy Auto Ship looks at several factors when determining a price for car shipping. They include:
Shipping companies carry insurance, but your vehicle should also be covered by your own insurance policy.
If your vehicle is damaged during shipping, you will need to file a claim with Easy Auto Ship as soon as possible.
Easy Auto Ship carries a strong online reputation with many great reviews. Here are both positive and negative reactions from Birdeye.com.
“First attempt at shipping a car across the country. MY CONTACT Mr. Gary delivered on everything he said. Picked up and delivered in a timely fashion. That makes me a satisfied customer. Only four stars because I do not give perfect ratings. CONCLUSION I WOULD USE HIM AGAIN.”
“Communications were good at all times. Easy Auto Ship got my two cars scheduled for pickup as requested and when my situation changed, were able to cancel that pickup and get me another that fit my new schedule in just a few days. The driver gave me several calls beforehand to update me and was prompt and courteous at all times. He got my vintage BMW and Porsche delivered 1000 miles away promptly and safely. Outstanding service at a reasonable price.”
“I would definitely not recommend Easy Auto. I was informed the vehicle would be transported quickly. Almost two weeks later, nothing. I was the one doing the calling and the texting. Although, I was supposed to have a REPRESENTATIVE NAMED CHARITY TAKING GOOD CARE OF ME. She was to be my personal representative. They were terrible.”
“After getting a quote for $1200 to transport a 1970 super bee from Boston to California, car waited 30 plus days and I end up paying $1800, after getting a driver setup for this trip, driver called me and said that he’s gonna charge me an other $190 dollar cause he needed to hire a tow truck. So $1990 total so far. And then 5 days later, the driver showed up with the car but no documents for the car that were handed to him by the person who I purchased the car from. (Lost paperwork/documents that provide authenticity...). This matter still under investigation and definitely take legal action against this issue.”
Easy Auto Ship Comments
Car Talk reached out to the CEO of Easy Auto Ship to talk about the industry and how they have been growing their business so steadily over the last few years. Here's what he had to say.
"We like to consider ourselves as experts on instant pricing and keeping up with the constantly fluctuating supply and demand of our industry. We rely heavily on our tech, combined with our dedicated customer service. As far as prices for any routes, they vary, but our prices are guaranteed once quoted."
Yes, Easy Auto Ship is considered a reputable company in the shipping industry. Easy Auto Ship is known for good customer service, great ratings and a variety of shipping options, including closed container shipping, motorcycle shipping and classic car shipping.
The cheapest option for car shipping is open container shipping. This mean that your car will be exposed to the elements, but this option is much less expensive than closed container shipping. Read more about the cost of car shipping here.
No. Extra items inside your vehicle not only add weight, they can also end up being damaged. If a non-vehicle item is damaged during shipping, the carrier will likely not reimburse you for the costs of repairs or replacement.
Yes, you can. Most major auto shippers offer services for boats, RV, and other recreational vehicles. Easy Auto Ship also offers instant online quotes for these vehicles.
Absolutely, but it’s important to let your shipping company know about any operational issues your car has before booking it a ride on a truck. If the car doesn’t run, extra equipment will be needed to load it on a trailer, which is going to add cost to the shipping quote.
Again, yes, but make sure you let the shipper know ahead of time. If the vehicle is absolutely mangled, you’ll probably be able to ship it, but special accommodations may need to be made to both load and fit it onto a trailer.
