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!

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 only state in the Union named after a former United States President, the Evergreen State is the 12th most populous of the 50 states. It’s also the 18th largest state in total area at 71,362 miles, although 4,757 square miles of that is water. The second most populous state on the West Coast behind California, Washington is often referred to as “Washington State” to eliminate confusion between itself and the nation’s capital, Washington D.C.

While Olympia is the capital of Washington, it doesn’t even rank in the top ten most populous cities in the state. The most populous city in the state is one of the fastest-growing metropolitan areas in the entire nation, Seattle. The current estimated population of Seattle is 753,675 – nearly 24% bigger than the 2010 Census count of 608,660. The metropolitan area surrounding Seattle is growing rapidly as well, with cities like Tacoma and Vancouver seeing population booms as of late. Below are the nine other cities which follow Seattle in the list of the top ten most populous in the state:

If you’re buying a piece of wood furniture anywhere in the Continental United States (or even elsewhere), there’s a good chance that the wood used to make that furniture came from lumber operations within the Evergreen State. Thanks to its plentiful forests and near-constant rainfall, Washington is brimming with Douglas fir, ponderosa pine, spruce, larch, and cedar trees among many others. These trees are prime for lumber production and are an essential part of the Washington state economy.

Agriculture is also a major player in the Washingtonian economy. In fact, Washington is the nation’s leading producer of sweet cherries, spearmint oil, red raspberries, pears, hops, and apples. It also places extremely high on the list for asparagus, potatoes, peppermint oil, lentils, dry peas, grapes, and apricots. And if you love wine, you’ll be happy to know that Washington trails only California in the nation in wine production.

Manufacturing also has a strong imprint in the Evergreen State if you’re looking for jobs in that sector. Plants and factories in Washington turn out a wide swath of different products including ships, other transportation devices, chemicals, different metals, general machinery, food processing equipment, missiles, and aircraft.

All told, Washington ranks among the wealthiest states in the entire country. If you’re looking to raise a family, you can look forward to some of the highest life expectancy rates in the country and the lowest unemployment percentages as well. While cost of living is starting to skyrocket a bit in the Seattle area, there are still plenty of towns in Washington which have affordable housing and plenty of available jobs to apply for.

Tourism is a strong contributor to the state economy as well, especially when it comes to Seattle. Seattle has a ton of attractions to its credit from sports venues to world-renowned museums. The most recognizable attraction in Seattle also happens to be what most outsiders associate with it – the towering Space Needle. If you get a chance and you’re not afraid of heights, take the ride up the needle and maybe grab a bite to eat in the cafe. The view is something which can’t be replicated anywhere else.

There are plenty of other sights to see all around the state of Washington, including checking out a few of the 1,000 different dams within the state. The Grand Coulee is perhaps the most visually impressive of the bunch and helps the area with everything from irrigation to energy. Other points of interest worth checking out include three different National Parks (Olympic, Mt. Rainier and North Cascades), the breathtaking Mount St. Helens in the Cascade Range which actually erupted way back in May of 1980, and the Fort Vancouver National Historic Site.

As you probably guessed, Washington is definitely for lovers of the outdoors. There are 120 different state parks within its borders and 2.1 million acres worth of forest land. There are so many different camping sites catering to tourists and locals throughout the year, and outdoors activities from hiking to hunting make the Evergreen State and extremely attractive destination for transplants and visitors alike.

For those looking for a more socially liberal state, Washington is definitely at or near the top of the list. It was one of the first states to legalize recreational and medical cannabis, one of the first 36 states in the Union to legalize same-sex marriages, and is often a center for many different progressive causes and organizations. If that’s up your alley, what are you waiting for? Ship your car or truck to Washington as soon as you can!

The food culture in the Evergreen State is as varied and diverse as its population. Washington has a giant stretch of coastline on the Pacific Ocean which means there’s a ton of fresh seafood to try at restaurants all around the state. From trout to oysters and everything in between, you’ll be hard-pressed to find tastier seafood outside of Washington.

The city of Seattle is growing as an international hub thanks to SeaTac International Airport and a growing immigrant population from Asia, Europe, and elsewhere. The large Asian population within the city proper and in the outlying metropolitan area has brought many amazing food traditions with them. Some of the best Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Thai food in the world is served in places like Seattle and Tacoma.

You know what goes great with yummy food? Sports! The city of Seattle is home to two professional sports franchises in the four major American sports – the Seattle Mariners (Major League Baseball) and the Seattle Seahawks (National Football League). Perhaps the most interesting and exhilarating professional sports experience in Seattle is at CenturyLink Field, whether it’s checking out an aforementioned Seahawks game or experiencing the unique atmosphere of a Seattle Sounders game (Major League Soccer).

Collegiate sports also has a healthy imprint in the State of Washington. Washington State University in Pullman and the University of Washington in Seattle are natural rivals, with their football showdown for the Apple Cup standing as one of the most anticipated days on the Washingtonian sports calendar.

Speaking of those universities, they are just two of forty or so different higher-education institutions in Washington State. Other top-ranked universities within the state’s borders include Gonzaga University in Spokane, Western Washington University in Bellingham, Eastern Washington University in Cheney, Central Washington University in Ellensburg, and the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma.

  • Are you feeling a little cold? You might be if you’re hanging out on one of the 3,000 or so glaciers in Washington State. You’d think Alaska would have more, but Washington is in fact the national leader in glaciers within its bounds.
