Step 1

Schedule a car shipment online or over the phone.

Schedule a vehicle shipment with Nexus and you'll be surprised at how easy it is!

You're bound to find a fair shipping rate that works for you, or you can pay a bit more for expedited enclosed vehicle transport. It all depends on your needs and the driver availability of our network of car haulers. Reserve your car shipment with a refundable $25 reservation fee. Our low-risk car delivery service is suitable for any budget.

Step 2

We pick up your car and the vehicle transport journey begins.

One of our expert Nexus auto transport coordinators will work with you to arrange a vehicle pickup date and time which works best for you. When you ship a car direct with Nexus, we do our very best to work around your schedule!

Just prep your vehicle for car hauling by cleaning it inside and out, removing valuable personal items, and making sure there's at least a quarter tank of gas for loading and unloading it off of the car hauler. On car pickup day, you or someone you authorize through Nexus will inspect your vehicle with your driver to notate preexisting damages and other concerns. Once the Bill of Lading and the inspection report are signed, your car will be on its way!

Step 3

Our car hauling service delivers your vehicle to its destination.

You can contact your car transporter at any time during your vehicle shipment to ask questions about arrival times and anything else that may be on your mind. Our vehicle transport truckers go through rigorous safety and procedural training to ensure that your car is safe every step of the way!

The vehicle transport hauler will come as close to your address as safely and legally possible. Any balance due on your vehicle shipment can be paid to your trucker upon arrival. You or someone you appoint will conduct a final vehicle inspection, sign off on a Bill of Lading, and you're done! Shipping is complex with other car moving companies. But, it’s as simple as 1, 2, 3 with Nexus.

The ninth most populous state in the Union, the Tar Heel State is home to approximately 10,488,084 residents. That’s pretty dense from a population standpoint, considering North Carolina is only the 28th largest state in the United States with an area of 53,819 square miles. While Raleigh is the state’s capital, it is the city of Charlotte which has the largest population in North Carolina. The city of Charlotte is currently home to 885,708 residents, good for the 15th largest city in the entire United States.

And Charlotte is growing! The population has increased in the Queen City by over 23% since a 2010 Census count of 731,424 residents. Transplants aren’t just flocking to Charlotte proper, though. The entire Charlotte metropolitan area is home to an estimated 2,569,213 residents. That’s good for the 24th biggest metropolitan area in the United States.

One interesting thing about the State of North Carolina during its recent population boom is the concerted shift the state has seen from an industrial standpoint. For decades upon decades, North Carolina was known as the centerpiece of Tobacco Road. It still remains a very key producer and distributor of tobacco products, but recent downturns in tobacco profitability have led to the state’s diversification of its industrial efforts.

While North Carolina remains a solid and strong producer of manufactured goods such as textiles and furniture, the real paradigm shift within the job market of the Tar Heel State has been towards business based on the acquisition and proliferation of knowledge-based solutions. North Carolina is now an industry leader in pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, and life sciences. If you’re looking for a job which will challenge your mind and your body equally, North Carolina is likely the place for you.

Tourism is also a huge part of the North Carolina economy, accounting for more than $1 billion of profits each year. A large chunk of those profits are related to outdoors activities with the state – fishing licenses, hunting and game permits, and the like. The Tar Heel State is also known for its picturesque ski resorts and some of the most celebrated golf courses in the United States. If you want to get outdoors and make your vacation an active one, the Tar Heel State has you covered.

Some of the most desirable tourist attractions within North Carolina are the majestic Great Smoky Mountains, the Blue Ridge National Parkway, the Wright Brothers National Memorial at Kitty Hawk, the Guilford Courthouse, Moores Creek National Military Parks, both the Cape Lookout and Cape Hatteras National Seashores, and the Old Salem Restoration out in Winston-Salem. And if you’re a huge literature fan, be sure to make time for a trip to Carl Sandburg's home just outside of Hendersonville.

If all this talk of traveling has you feeling hungry, don’t worry. North Carolina is world famous for its barbecue. There are two different types of barbecue which make the venerable North Carolina BBQ scene. Western North Carolina barbecue uses the dark meat of pork shoulder almost exclusively, topping it was a sauce with a vinegar base that has elements of tomato in it. Eastern North Carolina barbecue uses a wider variety of meats and covers things with a thinner sauce that mixes vinegar and a variety of spices. The key spice? Cayenne. Watch your mouth. Things get spicy in the Tar Heel State.

Barbecue isn’t the only food worth it’s weight of gold within the borders of North Carolina. In the larger metropolitan areas of Charlotte and Raleigh, a diverse populace has informed the food culture in cool and amazing ways. There’s a large Caribbean and Cuban influence from those who have moved up from Florida, and there are also a variety of other cuisines from immigrants around the world.

Now it’s time to talk about sports – one of the primary joys of North Carolina culture. The Tar Heel State is home to three professional sports franchises in the four major American sports – the Carolina Hurricanes (NHL), Carolina Panthers (NFL), and Charlotte Hornets (NBA). It’s also home to several semi-professional and minor league squads in a large swath of different sporting endeavors.

Where North Carolina really shines on the sporting map is in collegiate athletics. If you follow college basketball in the slightest, you know the in-state rivalry between Duke (in Durham) and the University of North Carolina (in Chapel Hill) is perhaps the most storied in the history of collegiate athletics. Whether you’re watching them play at Cameron Indoor Stadium in Durham or at the Dean E. Smith Center in Chapel Hill, you’re in for something that you’ll never see replicated anywhere else. The energy is electric. The quality of play is usually just as good.

Speaking of colleges with North Carolina, the Tar Heel State is home to 17 different public universities and 58 community colleges. The aforementioned University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill was established in 1795 as the first public university in the United States of America. However, UNC is not the biggest school in the Tar Heel State. That honor goes to North Carolina State University in Raleigh which has an enrollment around 34,000 students.

In addition to its public universities and community colleges, the Tar Heel State is home to some of the most celebrated private universities in the world. This includes the aforementioned Duke University in Durham, Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, Davidson College in Davidson, and Pfeiffer University in Misenheimer.
