Guardian Picks Up Your Car

Whether it’s your driveway or a public meeting place, one of our trusted and vetted drivers will pick up your car at your chosen date and time. Before loading the vehicle, our driver will conduct a 22-point inspection, which includes checking:

  • Dents, dings, or damages
  • Brakes
  • Headlights
  • Windshield wipers
  • Wheels and tires
  • Interior malfunction and service lights
  • and more

The inspection is to ensure that your car is in the same shape upon arrival of the destination. The details will be recorded on an official inspection called the Bill of Lading. Then, the driver will load and ship the car to or from Illinois.

We know that you’re busy with other things in life, but one thing we don’t want you to worry about is the status of your vehicle. That’s why our agents and driver will stay in contact with you throughout the shipping process.

Our team will also call you within a day to let you know when to expect delivery. Depending on the driver’s schedule, we will set up a window for pickup to make sure you or your pickup contact is prepared to receive the vehicle.


Safe and Timely Delivery

When our trusted driver delivers your car, they will conduct another 22-point inspection. This is to double-check that your vehicle is in the same condition it was in upon pickup. Only when you look over the Bill of Lading and approve the inspection will you have to pay for the original quoted cost.

Select from Our
Transportation Options

At Guardian, we offer three types of transportation options: open, enclosed, and expedited. If you’re unsure which one is right for your car, one of our agents can help you choose the right one depending on your preferences and vehicle type.

Open Auto Transport

Open Auto Transport

Open auto transport is when your car is shipped in an open carrier. This is ideal for non-luxury vehicles or those searching for a more cost-effective option but still want the significant benefits, such as full insurance coverage, door-to-door service, and no cancellation fees.

Enclosed Auto Transport

Enclosed Auto Transport

Enclosed auto transport is perfect for those shipping luxury cars, new cars from a dealership, and classic car enthusiasts. Our enclosed carrier will protect your vehicle from the elements so that it’s safe during its whole transportation. With total vehicle protection, you’ll also receive the benefits of full insurance coverage, door-to-door service, and no cancellation fees.

Expedited Auto Transport
