SHIPPING ANY VEHICLE, ANYWHERE, ANYTIME.

Auto Shipping. Not Your Average Industry.

The Auto Shipping Industry is unique. So it demands a unique customer experience. In the Auto Shipping world, two distinct groups of Shipping Specialists are in constant negotiation; the Brokers and the Carriers. In order to get your vehicle transported, you’ll need to team up with a Broker to find the best Carrier for the job. We call this the Client-Broker Alliance.

Through this back and forth exchange with a national network of Carriers competing for your business, your Yellowfin Broker will ensure that shipping your vehicle is easy and affordable.

HOW AUTO SHIPPING WORKS

THE CLIENT-BROKER ALLIANCE

STEP 1

Free Consultation

Request a quote and a Designated Auto Shipping Advisor will be assigned to you. Your Advisor will do an assessment of the current market trends that could affect pricing and carrier availability. This assessment helps your Advisor better negotiate with Carriers on your behalf and will ensure you are informed of what to expect going forward.

STEP 2

Place An Order

Once you book Yellowfin as your Broker, our Dispatch Department will start working on your order. Your Advisor will inform you when Carriers express interest in shipping your vehicle. As these are merely offers, you are not obliged to accept any bid that does not meet your schedule or budget priorities.

STEP 3

Book Your Carrier

Once you accept an offer, a Shipping Agreement will be finalized and your spot reserved with the Carrier. All terms will be outlined in this document for your review and signature.

STEP 4

Confirm Pick-Up

A Dispatch Notice provides all contact information for your Carrier. It is recommended that you call your Carrier prior to the pickup date to confirm all arrangements directly with the Driver they’ve assigned to you. Your Yellowfin Advisor is available should you need any additional assistance.

STEP 5

Vehicle Transportation

The Carrier is required to keep you updated on the status of your shipment prior to pick-up and delivery. However, your Yellowfin Advisor remains available to you at all times to address any concerns or assist with status updates.

STEP 6

Delivery

The Carrier will do a final inspection of your vehicle and will document this in the Bill of Lading (BOL). Sign the BOL after you’ve personally confirmed the condition of the vehicle. Payment to the Carrier is made on delivery in cash, cashiers cheque or money order.

THE YELLOWFIN EXPERIENCE

SHIPPING SNAPSHOTS

CLIENT-CENTRED SERVICE

WHAT WE OFFER

Open-Carriers

Open shipping services are in highest demand as it is the fastest to schedule and the most economical. Your vehicle is loaded onto an open trailer with roughly 10 other vehicles. These vehicles are tightly strapped in and secured. An Open-Trailer does not offer much protection from the elements.

Enclosed-Carriers

This offers a higher degree of security and protection for your vehicle as it is loaded with only a few other vehicles and is completely protected from the elements. Enclosed-Trailer shipments are charged at a premium rate and slightly more difficult to schedule.

Door-To-Door

Also known as house-to-house, this shipping service ensures your Carrier will transport your vehicle from and to any address you specify.

Industry Experts

We have a diverse team of Auto Shipping Specialists who have extensive experience under the hood. You can be confident in the fact that your vehicle is being handled by industry veterans. Our experts will facilitate the entire process from booking straight through to having your vehicle delivered to your door.

Dedicated Advisors

From the very first point of contact, you will have a Dedicated Auto Shipping Advisor assigned to your order. Your Advisor will walk you through every step of the process to ensure your shipping experience flows seamlessly from point A to point B.

Custom Solutions

We know that every shipment is unique. Our team of experts work tirelessly to ensure you are provided with custom-built solutions for every situation. In a volatile industry, you can trust that the full weight of our expertise will ensure your vehicle gets to you safely.

Open Daily

Our Dispatch Team is available 7 days a week, 9am-8pm EST. Should your Shipping Advisor be unavailable, you’ll be forwarded to our switchboard for further assistance. Call our switchboard directly at (888) 223-5038 toll free.

Insurance Coverage

Insurance coverage for your vehicle is included in your quote and is held by the Carrier. We ensure our network of Carriers are fully insured at all times.

15K+ Carriers

We coordinate all shipments through a large network of licensed Auto Shipping Carriers nationwide. All Carriers are legally required to be fully licensed, insured and with USDOT credentials.

AUTO TRANSPORT

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

Special accommodation must be made for vehicles which are heavier, longer or taller than the average sedan. These vehicles will therefore be more expensive to ship.
Inoperable vehicles will require special equipment for loading purposes. It’s important that your inoperable vehicle can still roll, steer and brake in order for it to be loaded with a winch. These vehicles will cost more to ship.
Major towns and cities will have a lot more Carriers operating in the area. This results in lower costs than for more rural locations. Adding certain rural locations to a shipping route may require the Carrier to make a detour off its regular trucking lane. This additional time and fuel is added to your overall quote.
Shorter distances are more economical overall but are charged at a higher rate per mile. Longer distances are more expensive overall but are charged at a lower rate per mile.
When many vehicles wait for transportation on a route with limited Carriers being available, then prices for transportation start to increase due to the bidding wars that may occur between customers who want their vehicle loaded first as a priority shipment.
Shipping a vehicle during the winter months will be more expensive due to the adverse effects of snow and ice on many Trucking Lanes.

    My 1967 Chevelle was transported from LA to Portland by Yellowfin Logistics. Max Taylor was my contact and was very thorough and precise! I received several quotes and choose Yellowfin Logistics because my car was a roller (no engine or brakes) and he assured me that it would be no problem and no extra charges would magically appear! The carrier arrived 30 minutes early but did not rush me which I appreciate! He helped me stage my car for loading (pushing it into place) and called my destination contact 6 hours and again - 30 minutes before arriving! Everything went as planned and I couldn't be more happy! I would whole-heartily recommend Max Taylor and Yellowfin Logistics!

    If you’re overwhelmed and under experienced on how to ship a car from state to state please use this carrier. I had no idea where to begin. I chose this carrier because after many options Greg explain to me how this all works and I understood. Your car is placed on a national registry board then carriers bid on the price. The price he quoted me was the lowest quote I got assured me that would be the final amount I would owe. My car was shipped on July 12 from St. Petersburg Florida and arrived July 14 in Butler Pennsylvania. The driver was Daniel and he kept me informed along the way. I highly recommend Yellow Fin and Daniel and would never use anybody but them in the future.

    I purchased a vehicle in Las Vegas over the phone and wanted to trade in my vehicle that was here in San Jose. I was a little skeptical transporting my vehicle because I’ve never done it before, however the experience was nothing short of excellence. The driver arrived in a timely manner and was very communicative and friendly. He was able to transport my car from San Jose to Las Vegas, and return the purchased car from Vegas to San Jose. I am very pleased with the trips and I will recommend your services to others in need of transportation. Thank you!

    I had my 1953 GMC Pickup shipped from Ohio to Michigan with no issues. I recommend Yellowfin Logistic to anyone that needs their car shipped. The price was very reasonable as well and they never changed it. The price they quoted me was the price I payed with all fees and taxes included.
