There are plenty of reasons to choose to ship your vehicle instead of driving it all the way from Maine to Georgia. Below, we’ll look at some of the most common reasons that people choose to use Preowned Auto Logistics to get their cars shipped.
Whenever you get behind the wheel, you risk encountering any number of dangers on the road. This is just one of the costs of driving your vehicle. However, when you’re making a long trip, like one from Maine to Georgia, the chances of encountering these problems increases.
Shipping your vehicle with PAL helps you to avoid problems like reckless drivers, animals on the road, debris, or hazardous weather conditions. Driving in rain, sleet, snow, or heavy winds increases your chances of getting into a car accident significantly.
When you ship your car instead, our expert drivers are equipped and familiar with handling all of the dangers and know the best course of action to take in hazardous conditions. They will be able to ensure your vehicle arrives safely.
Additionally, driving your vehicle is time-consuming. You’ll have to take days out of your busy schedule to do nothing but drive the car from one place to the next. Instead, hiring PAL can free up that time for better things. Plus, booking your shipping is easy! We accept all major credit cards, cash, checks, and PayPal.
It may not seem like having an auto shipping company transport your vehicle would be the cheapest option, but there are a lot of reasons that shipping your car can be the most cost-effective option. Below, let’s look at how much it costs to drive your car from Portland, Maine, to Atlanta, Georgia.
The distance from Portland, ME, to Atlanta, GA, is 1,178 miles, without detours or stops. If your car gets 25 miles to the gallon and gas is $3.50 a gallon, you’ll spend no less than $165 on fuel.
This drive takes about 3 days to complete if you’re avoiding driving under hazardous conditions. You should try not to drive at night and spend around 8 hours on the road to avoid getting drowsy at the wheel. This means you’ll need to find a hotel for two nights. If a hotel is around $150 a night, you’ll spend $300 or more on lodging.
You’ll need to budget for food during the trip. A good rule of thumb is to plan around $40 a day per person. If you are the only one making the journey, you’ll need to spend $120 on food along the way. Keep in mind this estimate only includes fast-food prices; if you have a nicer meal, this budget will need to go up.
Altogether, you’re looking at an initial estimate of $585 to drive your vehicle from Portland to Atlanta. However, these are not the only costs associated with driving your vehicle. You’ll also need to account for loss-of-wages from time off of work to make the drive and the depreciation of your vehicle with the added mileage.
Lastly, this estimate doesn’t include a cushion for things like delays, detours, car trouble, traffic, planned stops, or anything else that can extend the trip or add expenses along the way.
When you ship your car with Preowned Auto Logistics, you’ll have the confidence you need knowing your vehicle is in the hands of an expert driver. All of our drivers have extensive histories in the shipping industry and are familiar with the best routes throughout the country. Additionally, we perform background checks on all drivers to ensure a clean driving record.
When your vehicle is scheduled to be loaded onto the truck, your driver will perform a thorough inspection of the car. This inspection will include taking pictures of the interior and exterior and noting any existing damage. All of the driver’s findings will be logged so that you can reference them as well.
Once the vehicle is on the truck, it will be covered by our insurance, so you won’t have to worry about your car in case of unforeseen problems on the road. We’ll have you covered!
Once the car is ready to be dropped off at the terminal, the driver will perform a second inspection to ensure the vehicle is in the same condition as when it left. This report is then signed by both you and the driver to ensure you agree on the condition of the vehicle. If any problems are found, your driver will help you start filing a claim right away to get it handled quickly.

I am so glad I picked this company to transport my M6 that was 2600 miles away. Kerri is the best at what she does. She assured me that she would personally notify me in every step of this process, and she delivered. I cannot thank her and this company enough for everything they said they would do. In fact, I was told it would arrive at a specific time, and it came one minute early. Thank you so much Kerri for making me feel like I was your only customer..”Kevin Herrington
