    Shipping my car from Iowa to Ohio
    How can I ship my car (2013 Nissam Maxima) from Iowa to Ohio this week. I'd like to know if there is a company which can do it for me within a very short time? Thanks in advance

    There are also services where someone can be hired to drive your car from place to place. This is often cheaper then auto transport. It shouldn't be more than a 2 day drive from IA to OH.

    2 days at most... I think it can be driven in maybe 10 -12 hours if from the far west side of IA to the far east side of OH. Significantly less if its not as far into either state.

    That's less mileage than Wash, DC to Chicago and I did that in 12 hours, twice.

    Will take longer with a car carrier if driving isn't an option. Driving it yourself will be significantly cheaper.

    If this is because you are moving and driving a U-haul. Consider a car dolly and pull it behind you. I've done that once before.

    And it depends on how much you want to pay. If you want it NOW... and not to wait till they have 10 or 12 other cars going in that direction, it costs more. If you can wait for a period, it can cost less.

    But agreed, there are people who drive a car (and that is really a short distance) and it is normally a lot faster and a lot cheaper. As for goes, see if a friend could ?
