San Diego is one of the largest cities in the state of California and one of the main auto shipping hubs in the southern part of the state. But finding San Diego auto shipping by rail may be somewhat challenging. This is not because of the city, but rather the state of the industry. It’s easy to ship a car to or from San Diego by truck. But for rail services, most of them are focused on eastern routes, especially up and down the eastern seaboard. That being said, if there are San Diego auto shipping by rail services available, we can find them for you.
About San Diego auto shipping by rail services
San Diego, like Los Angeles, is probably going to be a major rail hub for car shipping – if it’s available. The sheer size of the city, as well as its connections, make it a prime candidate. San Diego has a major naval presence and that requires infrastructure. So there are definitely rail lines running both to and from the city. The issue, of course, is whether there are any trains that are shipping cars along those tracks.
And really, there aren’t a lot around nowadays. Shipping by truck is generally faster, cheaper, and more cost-effective for both customers and shipping companies. Rail shipping of automobiles is often done for manufacturers or importers, and is done in bulk. Shipping for individuals such as yourself is usually reserved for trucks.
But if it’s available, we can find it. It may take some time, which is pretty much standard. If there is rail shipping available, we will help you set that up. We’ll let you know where you’ll need to drop your car off (and pick it up), how long it’ll take, what it will cost, and more.
