Are you embarking on your journey as a travel nurse? You're in excellent company.

Research shows more than 1.7 million travel nurses currently work in the US.

Driving your car to your assignments across the country can get tiring and rack up miles on your car. Avoid these issues by shipping your vehicle to your assignment locations.

Let's explore why travel nurses choose Nexus Auto Transport for auto transportation.

Why Auto Transportation?

A major drawback of driving your car to nursing job sites in the US is you may have to pay hefty car maintenance and gas costs over time. This is especially true if your assignment locations are spread apart across the US.

You might also feel uncomfortable driving long distances if you expect to encounter rain or snow.

Shipping a car with Nexus Auto Transport is the better option. You won't have to drive your car everywhere you go, but you'll always be able to use it at each nursing assignment location.

Open Transport

A popular car shipping method is open auto transport. Your car will be loaded onto a hauler with no sides.

This method is also called hot shot car transport.

Using an open hauler will save you money compared to using an enclosed one (more on this next). The downside is that your car will be exposed to the weather and road debris.

At Nexus Auto Transport, we take great care of our customers' vehicles, so the cars we ship using an open hauler are usually intact when they reach their destinations.

Enclosed Transport

Enclosed auto transport involves shipping your car on a hauler with sides. The sides will shield your car from weather conditions. Our enclosed hauler will also protect your vehicle from environmental hazards like debris and flying rocks.

This shipping method may be worth the extra cost for the peace of mind it provides.

Use this option if you need to ship a luxury car. Classic car shipping and sports car shipping services also use enclosed haulers to transport clients' high-speed and rare collector vehicles.

Other Service Options

Perhaps your next traveling nurse assignment is a few hundred miles away. We can help you ship a car to another state in one to two days.

Use our cross-country car shipping service if your next assignment is at the other end of the country from where you are. We can ship your car 1,300-1,500 miles from south to north or at least 2,000 miles from west to east.

Expect to receive your car within seven to 12 days when you use our cross-country car shipping service.

Another shipping option for travel nurses moving from state to state is expedited auto transport. This is a smart choice if you need to start your next cross-country nursing assignment right away and don't want to be without a vehicle for 12 days.

We have an extensive staff of drivers and a large fleet at Nexus Auto Transport, so we provide expedited auto transport year-round.

Door-to-door auto transport is another handy option for travel nurses who need to ship their cars to new assignment locations. This is where you can choose certain car pickup and drop-off locations. It's a convenient and safe car shipping method.

Shipping Process

Ready to ship your vehicle? We'll give you a quote. If you like the price, schedule your car pickup date and time.

Our driver will inspect your vehicle before loading it onto their hauler. They'll document any damage they see in the bill of lading, a document listing all items to be shipped. This is one of the required documents to ship a car (more on this next).

Your driver will load and secure your vehicle after you sign the bill of lading. Your car will begin its journey to your next nursing assignment location.

You'll need to receive the car at your destination and sign the bill of lading again.

Additional Shipping Documents

Several other documents you'll need when shipping your car include paperwork showing your insurance conditions and terms.

Your driver may also ask to see your vehicle registration and photo ID. Examples of a photo ID include your driver's license or passport. Your driver's license and insurance documents must be current.

Shipping Cost

Your car shipping costs will depend on several factors. These include the season when you're shipping your car and consumer demand. Whether you choose open versus enclosed transport will affect your price, too.

Expect a price increase if you choose expedited auto shipping or door-to-door transport.

How far your car is going is another important factor in your shipping cost.

Shipping might cost you between $700 and $1,050 if your car is going up to a few hundred miles away. The price might be between $1,500 and more than $2,000 if you're using cross-country transport.

Use our car shipping calculator to determine your shipping price. A moving cost calculator can help you figure out your packing and moving truck costs.

Shipping your car to your travel nurse assignments is more convenient than driving it to each job location. Both enclosed and open transport can get your car to its destination safely and quickly.
