Services Covered 

Montway Auto Transport is not your typical moving company. It is sort of like a broker for a massive network of car carriers and covers auto transport exclusively. But in this arena, Montway really shines. The company handles every aspect and type of auto transport you could imagine. Here is a partial list of the services offered by Montway:

  • Door-to-door service
  • Open auto transport
  • Enclosed safety transport
  • Expedited transport
  • International and Hawaii shipments
  • Relocations 
  • Online car buyers
  • College students
  • Snowbirds
  • Military moves
  • Classic car transportation
  • ATV shipping
  • Golf cart shipping
  • Motorcycle shipping
  • RV shipping

Montway also has business plans for enterprise and dealership solutions.

Pricing

Montway has some truly competitive prices, in fact, lower than the industry average. What’s more, when you get a quote, Montway guarantees that you’ll receive that price, not an inflated rate. The price you pay includes things like taxes, insurance, and all shipping costs that are incurred during the transport. 

The exact price quote you receive will depend on the various factors involved (distance, type of transport, where you’re moving to/from, season, vehicle type, etc.). But Montway does give a general guide on the website, which is nice if you’re looking to shop around and compare prices. Here are a few sample prices from Montway Auto Transport:

Distance of move
Cost per mile
Total Cost for Trip
1-500 miles
$1.96 per mile

$588 for 300 miles
500-1500 miles
$0.93 per mile
$930 for 1000
1500+ miles
$0.58 per mile
$870 for 1500 miles

Additionally, Montway says that an enclosed move is roughly 30%-40% more than an open transport.

Moving Process

The moving process is incredibly straightforward with Montway.

1. Start by getting a quote

Go online to get an instant quote on the spot. This is very convenient because it means you don’t have to speak to anyone directly or wait for a rep to get back to you. You can call or chat with an advisor if you aren’t clear on some details or which option to pick. 

2. Agree to the quote 

If you’re happy with the price quote, you can book the move. Click on the link and schedule your vehicle pickup. You can pick a time and date that’s convenient for you, and arrange the pickup location with your trucker.

3. Have your vehicle picked up

A trucker will come to pick up your vehicle, and you can watch the car be loaded onto the truck before you sign off on it.

4. Await your vehicle’s arrival

After that, you can just wait for your vehicle to arrive in the new location. You can track your vehicle using the online tracker or by speaking directly with the driver. However, there is no GPS tracking option. Vehicles will arrive in 1-9 days, depending on the distance of the transit. Montway has a convenient chart on its site to let you know approximately how long it will be.

Montway offers a door-to-door service that picks up and drops off at your location, a convenient option to say the least. There is also expedited shipping if you are on a tight time schedule. Additionally, Montway allows you to include a box or suitcase weighing up to 100 lbs of personal belongings in your vehicle at no extra charge. This is a great feature for college students and snowbirds going south for the winter.

Fleet Details

To put things into perspective, the average auto transport company will move roughly 20,000 vehicles annually. Montway on the other hand ships over 100,000, more than 5 times the average. The proof is in the pudding. Montway has 40,000+ trucks and thousands of drivers. 

Drivers are well vetted. Additionally, Montway Auto Transport carriers are all covered by a minimum of $100,000. On top of that, Montway puts up a further $250K of non-deductible coverage just for good measure. In our opinion, that’s the kind of detail that puts this company way above the competition.

Customer Service

Montway customer support is available via email, phone, and even live chat. Montway has a great help center too, filled with well-organized and detailed answers to important questions about the service.

Testimonials 

“I am a private party and have used Montway on four different occasions and each time was very pleased with the results. Their drivers are very customer oriented and they give you the transport drivers cell phone number so you can stay in touch. The drivers are courteous, friendly and very professional. I only recommend Montway to my friends and will use them in the future. Thank you Montway!!!” Gary

“I couldn't have asked for a better experience than I had with Montway! Every person I talked with was polite, courteous and wonderful people to deal with. I would highly recommend anyone who is looking to transport a vehicle to use Montway! The price was right and service excellent :)” William H

“I had an excellent experience with my plans to ship two cars across the country. Montway and their shippers were efficient about scheduling pickups and deliveries, and about transporting across the country in a short time. They accommodated an unexpected change in delivery location, and refunded a down payment for a service I didn't end up needing to use. I'm extremely pleased, and would gladly use Montway again.” Jiom Pintner

Bottom Line

Montway is a leader in the auto transport industry, and it’s easy to see why. With low, competitive pricing, courteous drivers, and professional services, Montway really stands out in a competitive industry. What’s more, Montway offers a great satisfaction guarantee, high insurance coverage, and has plenty of moving options for every situation.
