Soldier Car Transport will assign you a trusted and qualified carrier that will meet your car shipping requirements. Your deposit will be charged when the assigned carrier is dispatched, approximately 24 hours prior to your auto pickup.

STEP 5: AUTO PICK UP
Soldier Car Transport and the assigned carrier will contact you directly, usually 24-48 hours prior to arrival to set up a time for pickup. Prior to the transport, a complete joint inspection will occur at the designated pickup location.
STEP 6: AUTO DELIVERY
You will be provided an estimated delivery date prior to pickup, as well as receive a daily travel status on your shipment. Upon arrival at destination, the carrier will complete a final joint inspection on site and provide you with a signed bill of inspection. Should a balance remain, the carrier will be paid at that time with either cash or certified check from your bank.
WHAT OTHERS HAVE TO SAY
Patrick was amazing to work with! He literally saved us! We had another company but they fell through last minute and we thought we were going to be stuck driving his truck across the country! The truck arrived before we thought it would and was in perfect condition! Thank you so much!

My 240z required a specialist to diagnose and repair an engine issue. The only local company that specializes in these cars is 60 miles away and I couldn't trust the car to make it that far. Towing companies wanted over $400 so I started looking for alternatives and had the good fortune of speaking with Patrick. While he specializes in arranging cross-country transport, he listened to what I needed and said he would see if he could arrange a short transport when a hauler was heading North already and could fit me in. He stayed closely in touch the next couple days - something I absolutely appreciated since I had a repair shop on the other side waiting - and sure enough, he called with a quote and arrangements. Same day, the car was picked up, held overnight at a secure location and delivered the following morning. Patrick called in the a.m. to confirm the car was delivered and everything went smoothly thanks to his professionalism and hard work. Not to mention he made the arrangements for FAR LESS than local towing companies so he's extremely competitive. And you have to love and respect the fact that this business is his baby - he's the owner building a reputation in the transport business - so you're not dealing with people that are just doing a job and forget about you when they hang up the phone. Yelp is an awesome place to research who you're going to trust and he consistently has 5-star ratings. Believe me, he earns every one of them. Bottom line: if you're looking to move your vehicle, do yourself a huge favor and give Patrick a call for a quote. I absolutely will look no further if I need to move a car again - he's that kind of good.

I generally don't write reviews, but felt I really had to in this case. I shipped my Ridgeline using Patrick's service. If i ever have to ship another vehicle I'll be using his service!! He has gone out of his way to take care of shipping my truck. He's kept me posted on everything that was happening prior to pick up and after; and was always available to answer any questions. He's been really patient with my worries and concerns and made this probably the best part of this entire move. This is a case where I got more then I paid for. If you're shipping a vehicle call Patrick!!!!
Michael Jett - Yelp - October 2019
I highly recommend Soldier Car Transport for anyone searching for someone to transport their vehicles. After what felt like endless tiresome research, calling, and emailing many different car transport services for my move I settled with Soldier Car and I do not regret it one bit! Reasonable cost, super trustworthy, communication was on point the entire time with the driver himself & also with Patrick, the bossman. He was not pushy at all during the initial phone call like other companies. He simply told me the process of transporting, discussed the cost, and thoroughly answered all my questions and left it up to me if I went with his services or not. This was my first move to another state and I was super overwhelmed at first finding someone to transport my car and Patrick made sure my car will safely get to my destination and also in a timely manner. I was very skeptical at first to use any car transport service and was initially going to drive my car down to my new state due to OTHER companies reviews (not Soldier Car Transport) and how sketchy, costly, and pushy those companies were. But in the end Soldier proved to be 100% worth using for car transportations.
Christine Y. - Yelp - October 2019
I called 8 different Transport Brokerage Co.'s before choosing Soldier Car Transport.
Patrick's quote was less expensive than 6 others some by as much as $195.00. And he tied with another. But I chose Soldier Car Transport because he made everything so convenient. He lived only 4 blocks from our Soldier Sons previous address and a huge + factor was Patrick's hospitality to allow us to park our vehicle at his home and he would handle making sure it got loaded when the hauler arrived freeing my Soldier Son up to be at work and work on out processing which isn't completed yet. What a huge relief. Thank you Patrick. We received updates and our vehicle was delivered today. Awesome would highly recommend Soldiers and Airmen from JBLM needing a safe, courteous, reliable car transport Broker to go with Soldiers Car Transport right there in University Place. A+++++

Patrick was great to work with. He contacted his driver to pick up a car I purchased from Washington state the same day I contacted him. I live in Virginia, and he promised the car to arrive by the following weekend. Patrick gave me the truck driver's name and phone # to coordinate the time and exact location of where to meet him. The price was shockingly good considering the length of travel that was required. I received my vehicle the following Thursday morning with no unexpected dings or scratches, and the truck driver was a cool guy as well. If you don't mind open trailer transport I would gladly encourage others to use his services!
Nick Atkins - Google - December 2019
I never used a service to have my car transported and was moving to LA. So I started calling around a few months in advance. I found this place and Patrick was great with answering all my questions. He called a few times to follow up. The price was great a lot cheaper than what I expected. As my car was getting delivered I had a lot of communication with him and the driver. Patrick’s customer service was great! I called often and he never made me feel like I was bugging him! Car was delivered at the date decided with no problems.

I recently purchased a car out of state and a big part of this hairy experience is having to entrust someone to ship your new car all the way across the country while hoping you don't end up with the short end of the stick like many of the horrid stories you'd read from people's reviews.
I contacted many outfits and agonized over the who can you trust and the how much this is going to cost for days. But when I had an opportunity to talk to Pat, I knew he is the guy who cares about what he does and will support you if something doesn't go right--having a fair price compared to others certainly was icing on the cake!
When the purchase actually happened after many false starts having purchase deals die, Pat scrambled during the holidays with a relatively short notice from me to arrange for the transport and kept me informed through the whole process. Not only that, for folks who have heard horror stories where the driver will ask for more money than the quote at destination, Pat honors his quote and made sure that I had nothing to worry about.
Transporting a car can be a stressful proposition, but having worked with Pat now, I'd never hesitate to do it again!
John I. - Yelp - January 2020
Patrick got my car picked up within several days of calling for a cross-country move. It was easy, fast, and dependable. Throughout the entire process Patrick reached out to me several times to make certain that I received all of the information I needed in order to feel comfortable about my move. My Jeep was in perfect condition when it arrived at its destination and I am very satisfied.
Jesse Monagham - Google - July 2019
We are a military family and my husband got orders overseas so we had to find someone to help us ship his classic car to his parents. We called around for different quotes originally was working with a different broker who tried to scam us, so we last minute had to find someone else. I started to search on yelp and I found soldier car transport. I called and spoke to Patrick. He was a very nice man, great customer service, gave us a great quote especially for so last minute and he was confident he would find someone in the time we needed to ship the car. He found someone to pick up the car from us on the date we wanted but the driver wanted a little more money, so Patrick so generously offered to cover the difference which was so so thoughtful! Our car was picked up on time and transported to destination with zero issues and a lot faster than expected. I highly recommend soldier car transport. Patrick is honest, has great customer service, and cares about his customers and their cars.
Nicole Cuprowski- Yelp - July 2019
Patrick was great both times I used his Company. I shipped cars all the way across the United States and everything went amazingly fast. Received updates on the location of the vehicles and they were delivered when promised. I would use Soldier Car Transport again.
James Milewski - Google - April 2019
I have been trying to get me and my father's truck for a few months. It was sitting for years and did not run, and no one would tow it for me until I called Patrick at Soldier Car Transport. Patrick did amazing job. He did everything to get it to me. It was great seeing that truck pull into my driveway. You guys are amazing. Thank you so much. Patrick even kept it in my price range when other company's wanted thousands of dollars. I highly recommend them and will use them in the future. Thank you so much!
Kyle Carver - Google - March 2019
I found Soldier Car Transport on the BBC site. From the beginning of the process Patrick was polite, full of information and engaging. They were able to meet our preferred dates and the pricing was very reasonable. Our pickup went as smooth as was explained. We were surprised how quickly our vehicle arrived! The delivery driver was kind and helpful and was able to easily follow the directions provided for the drop. I highly recommend Soldier Car Transport. I have shared my experience with friends and family. Should the need arise again, there is no doubt I will use them.
Gwendolyn Campbell - BBB - March 2019
Thanks Patrick a lot for helping me ship my car in the last minute. I searched a lot shipping companies, and they tried to scam me! They always say their company is the best, never get in trouble or anything else. They talked bad about others. I was tired of listening those things because when I did the online review their company, was also bad service. I wasted time with those other companies. Finally, I went to Yelp and used Soldier Car Transport because it was near my house. Patrick is a nice and kind guy. Patrick quickly helped me find a reliable shipping company, and tried hard to ship my car as soon as possible, instead of talking to much but do less like other ones. I called him on Dec 31st and booked it, and immediately after short talk with him, my car shipped from WA-TX, on January 3rd-January 8th. It was fast and safe. Door to door service. I'll definitely choose this company again in the future.
Tina P - Yelp - January 2019
Patrick was beyond fantastic to work with! We had a tricky situation and a non standard route - plus trying to move the vehicle over Thanksgiving. Let me tell you - Patrick came through with flying colors - was super easy to work with - on top of every detail and the driver was spot on too. If you need your auto moved - Soldier Transport is the best! I've moved other auto's and this service is the best and most communicative ever! Thanks so much Patrick!
Kim Person - Google - December 2018
Patrick was professional and gave an update on the status of my car. I plan on calling him every time I need a car moved. Refreshing knowing that this man is so good at his job. I highly recommend this company to ship your car anywhere in the country. By the way... I shipped my car from Seattle, WA to Charlotte, NC Price was awesome and the service even better. Great job! Patrick. I’ll be calling you again soon
Daniel Payne - BBB - November 2018
Great communication! From start to finish Patrick kept me updated on what was going on. He explained the process and the info he gave was very much needed as it was my first time transporting my car. The price was great, and the service was quick. My vehicle arrived the same day that I moved into my new home.
Charasia Wright - BBB - November 2018
Especially for military members, Patrick understands our oftentimes unique, complicated, and last minute situations and he does his best to work with you. He worked out my situation in one day and was able to schedule a pick up and drop off date that worked with my schedule. He's personable, and can understand military jargon and situations which can be frustrating sometimes when working with civilian companies who don't understand our unique situations. He followed up multiple times throughout the shipping process of my car and kept me updated. He also answers his phone on weekends, and really takes time to work with you. He's trustworthy, honest, and will get your vehicle from point a to point b in as reasonable a time and price as possible!
Janney Chang - Yelp - October 2018
This was our first experience having a car transported, and Patrick made sure everything went smoothly. He explained the whole process clearly, kept us informed every step of the way as our car traveled from Washington to Tennessee, and followed up after the car arrived. Great guy, as well as the transport company he used. They were equally professional both at pickup and delivery. The car arrived in perfect condition. We highly recommend Patrick and Soldier Car Transport!
Don Walling - BBB - October 2018
If I could give Soldier Car Transport a 10 star rating I would. Patrick, the President of the company took my order on 9/11/18 to pick up a truck from Washington State to be delivered in Phoenix, Az. I needed it their fast and Patrick delivered. The truck was delivered on 9/18/18. I had nothing but the most professional experience with Soldier Transport. Communication was excellent with both the company and the drivers. I can't say enough positive things about Patrick and his drivers. I have had tons of autos shipped including Harley Davidson motorcycles and this has been, by leaps and bounds, the best experience ever. Thank you Patrick.
Cherie Wheeler - Yelp - September 2018
Patrick of Soldier car Transport stayed in contact with me and was very honest about locating a driver to take my car to Texas. Very professional and stayed in top of getting someone to ship my car, because he understand the time of the essence to get my car to my daughter as soon as possible. He stayed in contact with me through out the picking up and delivery, to final destination process. The delivery actually arrived to Texas a few days earlier than expected. I will definitely use his company again when it’s time to ship my car. Thank you!
Ofelia Woodrich - Google - September 2018
Patrick made everything a lot easier for me while moving from Washington to Maryland. Both vehicles, 1 including a large pickup, were shipped extremely quick and without as much as a scratch. His prices are unbeatable and he will always keep you updated. If you go through anyone to ship a vehicle, I highly recommend that you go through Soldier Car Transport.
Doug Schombert - Google - August 2018
Patrick was very professional and got me the best deal by being at least $300 under other transport agents. He called to keep me up to date and make sure the contracted carriers were taking care of my transport. If I ever ship a car again, I will use Soldier Car transport. I highly recommend Patrick.
Kris Carrol - Google - August 2018
Patrick of Soldier Car Transport helped me ship my newly purchased car from New Jersey to Texas and I had a great experience. He was detailed in how the shipping process would work and always called to give updates on what stage the process was at. Next time I ship a car, I will make sure to call Patrick again. Thank you Soldier Car Transport!
Crayden Goh - Better Business Bureau - July 2018
Before speaking with Patrick, I’ve had SO much bad luck with car transportation (and I’ve moved from Washington state to Florida several times). Patrick made this transition so smooth. His communication was excellent, and he was also very professional. I even got my car much sooner than I thought I would! I’ve been through SEVERAL car shipping companies, and he has been the BEST. DONT GO TO ANYONE ONE ELSE! I’m most certainly trusting him with any future shipments. Thank you again Patrick!
Claudelle Ridore - Google - July 2018
Highly recommended when you need your car or truck transported. Patrick went above and beyond with building trust and communicating with me until I received my truck. It took them literally a week for me to receive my truck and it was coming from WA to VA and it was quoted to me. The carrier as well was communicating with me. Overall Solider Car Transport is HIGHLY recommended.
Powell Rattanavong - Yelp - July 2018
I can't say enough about Patrick and Soldier Car Transport. Patrick took care of me when I was in a bind, the transport company I originally went with was trying to charge me more money. Patrick immediately relieved my stress and got to work finding me a driver. He kept in touch with me throughout the whole process. I would highly recommend Patrick to any one looking for a transport.
Hans Schultz - Yelp - 2018
Before I found Patrick at Soldier Car Transport, I had so many quotes and so many people calling and texting me I was so confused and no one seemed trustworthy. He spoke to me with respect and explained the entire process before asking for any personal information. He just wanted to make sure I knew how it all worked. I gave him less than a weeks notice to get the shipment of my car set up and he accomplished it. He kept me in the loop and was constantly on the ball about the schedule. Received my car on expected date and was in perfect condition. Anyone looking to transport a car, Patrick is the one to hire. Thanks for your awesome job Patrick.
Malee Stucky - Google - July 2018
After my husband died, I moved from Tacoma, WA, to San Antonio, TX, to be near my children and grandchildren. I hesitated to make the cross country drive alone, so I decided to hire a vehicle transport service for the first time. Talking with Patrick Spaulding of Soldier Car Transport, I knew I was dealing with a professional who would help me. He arranged for my car to be picked up only 2 days before my flight and it was delivered in San Antonio one week later, in perfect condition. You can trust Soldier Car Transport.
Marla Todd - Google - June 2018
After talking to various car shipping brokers and transporters and comparing their dialog with their posted reviews I developed a sense of how they would actually perform versus their promises. I chose Soldiers Car Transport to ship my 1986 Corvette from Tacoma WA to Upstate NY. Patrick (the owner) could not have been more helpful! He instilled a sense of confidence and honesty that I had not felt from most others I talked to. To begin with Patrick said he would not charge a deposit until the car was actually loaded verses most other collecting money when they said they had a commitment. Patrick gave me a fair price, actually a bargain when you consider all the support he provided. He kept me informed every step of the way and acted on my behalf when it was needed always communicating to me what was taking place and he phoned me after the car was delivered just to be certain every thing was good. I would most definitely use him again. He would be my very first call!
Ted Wildman - Google - June 2018
I have shipped cars 5 total times and utilized Patrick and Soldier Car Transport for the last 2 shipments. Patrick has by far provided the best service. Both times Patrick maintained open lines of communication throughout the entire process and ensured our cars were transported safely and without damage. Other experiences I have had using other companies have consistently resulted in sub par performance and a lack of attention to my particular movement. I will only utilize Patrick’s company for future moves.
Shane Finlay - Better Business Bureau - June 2018
I've shipped my car back and forth across the country 4 times.. yes, 4. And Patrick with soldier car transport was the BEST transport company I've used so far. He was trust worthy and helped me out big time with a unique situation I was in. Highly recommended if you need your car shipped. Couldn't be happier with Patrick and the guys he has in his circle that got my car to its destination without even a scratch.
Tommy Peluso - Google - June 2018
If you are looking for a transport for your car, I would highly recommend using Soldier Car Transport. I spent days talking to other companies and getting the run around. Once I contacted Patrick he was straight forward. Price was great. Contacting him was easy. He would contact about Updates/confirmation at all the steps. Two day window for pick up and drop off. I shipped two cars to two different locations, no problem for this company, both on time and not even a scratch.
Ryan Fussell - Google - Feb 2018
Pat at Solider Car Transport is absolutely AMAZING! We had to from Washington State to Georgia, having to move my car, and I was completely stressed out it. I called Solider Car Transport and he helped me from the beginning to very end. I called him up and told him where I needed to go, and when I needed to be there and he done it all! He found someone to transport my car and on the exact day I needed it done. He kept up with me through the entire process making sure nothing had changed with my plans and reassuring me everything was going to be fine, and taken care of. My car arrived in Georgia AHEAD of schedule which was a great surprise. I wish I would have known about Solider Car Transport in my past moves. I will always come back for my car transport needs. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!! Thank you Pat for all your hard work!!!
~Brittany Cooper - Yelp - Feb 2018
The service provided by Patrick Spaulding of Soldier Car Transport of Tacoma, WA was outstanding. No hidden or unexpected fees. Mr. Spaulding was in contact with me from the time the vehicle left Tacoma until it arrived at the final designation. Mr. Spaulding was patient with inquiries and well versed in explanations of expectations prior to and during this transaction. I recommend Soldier Car Transport without reservation to anyone as a professional, courteous, affordable, and on top of the game of vehicle transportation. Thank you, Mr. Spaulding, for a job well done.
Christine Nix - Better Business Bureau - Dec 2017
We used Soldier Car Transport to transport nine vehicles from Phoenix, AZ to Washington, state and we could not be more pleased with the service we received. Patrick was amazing, working with us to make sure we got everything we needed covered. We loved that he didn't have an issue telling us how the transport works and what was going to be a good cost for us. Will definitely use them in the future and would recommend them to anyone wanting to transport a vehicle. Thank you so much for all your hard work and honesty!!!!!!!!!!!
Betsy Cosner - Google - Oct 2017
I was looking for car transporter to ship my vehicle from WA to FL since I'm stationed in FL and I needed my car here. Went on Google and I ran into Soldier Car Transport and contacted Mr. Spaulding. He e-mailed and gave a call within an half an hour for the quote to ship the vehicle and it was a very good price in my opinion, and honestly it was cheaper than the other places that I've been getting quotes around. Mr. Spaulding was very pleasant to work with and was honest and thorough about the car shipping process, since I have never shipped a vehicle before. He contacted me when the vehicle will be picked up and called during the shipping process when it was still en route to the destination and followed up with me again once my car got delivered to me. It came about 2-3 days earlier than expected and I couldn't be more happy with this service. The car came in the same condition when it was picked up. A very professional and straightforward business and the owner, Mr. Spaulding is very knowledgeable and pleasant to work with. I will be using Soldier Car Transport for my future car transport needs, I highly recommend this company for your shipment needs! Reliable, professional and honest. Thank you again for your services, Mr. Spaulding at Soldier Car Transport.
