San Francisco Vehicle Shipping

San Francisco is in the heart of the Bay Area in California. It is located in San Francisco County and is the fourth largest city in California with a population of over 880,000 people. The total population of the San Francisco Bay Area is over 7.7 million. It is also known as "The City by the Bay," "Golden Gate City," "Frisco," and "Fog City." As a popular tourist destination with the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, and Fisherman's Wharf, and being home to several professional sports teams and high-tech and financial companies, the area is a buzz with activity all year long. The demand for auto transport services is always in demand here so we have trucks transporting vehicles in and out of San Francisco on a regular basis for our private vehicle owners and various dealerships in the area.

When shipping a car to or from San Francisco, however, there are some things to be aware of. For starters, San Francisco car shipping isn't cheap. Of all the cities in the state, it's probably one of the most expensive cities to ship a car to or from.

The reason is because it is very time consuming and expensive for car carriers to serve San Francisco. They have to deal with expensive toll bridges, high gas prices (typically the highest prices in the state), and various road restrictions in the city. Many of the streets in San Francisco are restricted to smaller vehicles. To sum it all up, San Francisco is considered the most unfriendly metro area west of the Mississippi for car carriers to serve. To entice car carriers to pick up or deliver a vehicle in San Francisco you have to pay them a premium.

I’ve been so impressed with the quality and care of my “mid-life mobile” I’ll call again when I leave Alaska! THANK YOU!

The delivery of my car went fantastic!! From the time I booked the transport to the time the car was delivered was seamless! Very professional, kept me informed along the process and delivered my car within the timeframe that was initially promised! I would use J&S Transportation again!

You guys did a great job all the way around! Thank you! Your communication was truly excellent, and your staff that I spoke to were so nice. There are so many horror stories of other transport companies on the web, but you guys really were quite the opposite. You were a pleasure to work with!

It was a great experience from talking to your customer service to the delivery of my car!
