Do you have a vehicle that’s in high demand? Perfect. All that’s left to do is find the perfect buyer. But that doesn’t always mean the perfect buy is down the road. Finding the right buyer to take care of your baby is difficult. They could live hundreds of miles away, or even halfway across the country. When you’ve found the perfect buyer, Guardian Auto Transport is only a click away! We’ll pick up and deliver the vehicle for your safety on a timeline that best fits you.

Advice: If you think a buyer is low-balling you (compare value on Kelly Blue Book), drop it. Remember, someone will always offer you a better price.

Easy-To-Use Websites

Here are a few options for great online car buying car websites:


You don’t have to pay anything to list your vehicle on, but you will have to pay them a $99 fee if you sell it. They do a very good job at helping you sell your vehicle for the price you’re asking for.

Facebook Marketplace

The Facebook Marketplace is a place of wonders. Although it has its pros and cons, Facebook doesn’t charge you anything to sell on the marketplace. To sell through Facebook, you’ll need a Facebook account and will have access to the buyer’s profile. Visit a buyer’s profile to find out more about them. Are they worthy of your baby? That’s for you to decide.


Not sure where to start? check out Bring-A-Trailer. They receive lots of traffic from classic car enthusiasts to their site (so you can expect lots of passionate buyers)! It’s free to post, and a $99 fee when you sell.

Trailer Types

Expensive cars are usually a bit more $$$ to ship. We recommend shipping cars of higher value with an enclosed trailer. Typically, enclosed trailers offer higher insurance coverage on vehicles. Open-air carriers offer up to $100,000 coverage on vehicles in transit. Enclosed trailers on the other hand offer insurance at a minimum of $100,000. You might even want to call your insurance company and let them know your car is being transported. Some insurance companies offer insurance during transport. It’s always nice to have options!


Selling your car doesn’t have to be difficult when you know what to expect and where to sell it. If your buyer needs the car shipped, we’ve got you covered!
