What happens if I cancel?


You can cancel at any time prior to your vehicle being picked up. If you cancel prior to the assignment of a carrier you will be charged a $25 dispatch fee. In the event you cancel after the assignment of a carrier, you will be charged only the amount of the initial payment.




Is there a way to track my vehicle’s progress?


Of course. Call our auto transport experts anytime during the shipping process at (713) 352-7651 to get a real-time update on your vehicle’s location and estimated arrival time.




How long will it take to transport my vehicle?


This depends on how far it is going, the time of year and the specific route. Auto shipments can take as little as a day or two and as long as a few weeks. At times, severe weather and difficult road conditions may impact delivery schedules. Call our auto transport experts at (713) 352-7651 to get a custom quote based on your pickup and delivery dates and locations. You can also fill out our online quote request, and one of our experts will call you back.




What if I notice any damage on delivery day?


We partner with only the most professional auto transporters in the business. These carriers have outstanding customer service and delivery records. In the unlikely event that your vehicle is damaged in transit, be sure to note all damages on the Bill of Lading provided upon delivery. We also advise that you take photos and/or video of your vehicle upon pickup and again at delivery. Then call us to begin the claims process. They are insured upto $250,000




What if my vehicle is damaged?


We can move inoperable vehicles. There is an additional fee for this service, but as long as the vehicle can be rolled and steered, we can load it onto our standard carriers.




What kind of truck do you use to move my car?


We offer several carrier options, depending on your needs. For standard personal autos, we recommend an open carrier, which is the same method used to move brand-new cars from the factory to dealerships. If you are moving an exotic, collectible or antique auto, we suggest choosing an enclosed or hard-side carrier. Call our auto transportation experts at (713) 352-7651 for more details on the various options and to receive your free, no-obligation quote.




What should I do with my E-ZPass or automatic toll collection pass?


Please remove your E-ZPass or any other electronic toll collection mechanism from your vehicle entirely and mail it to your destination or bring it with you. Due to the nature of the automated toll road systems, if your device is left in your car as it is transported, you will incur toll fees as if you were driving the vehicle. Sherpa Auto Transport will not take responsibility for this avoidable expense.
