      Why do people ship cars from California to Texas instead of driving them?

      Initially, it may appear that Texas is only a few miles away from California. At first glance, people might think they can just drive their cars from California to Texas, but this route is much longer than it appears on a map!

      A trip from California to Texas on one of the shortest shipping routes requires 20 hours of driving. There are more than 1,900 miles between Sacramento, CA, and Houston, TX, and the trip takes approximately 28 hours.

      In addition, there are vast wilderness areas, forests, deserts, and parks to explore. Basically, if you drive this route, your car will suffer a great deal of unnecessary wear and tear (and miles).

      That’s why most people choose to have their cars shipped instead of driving them from California to Texas. That’s where we come in. We ship vehicles on this route every day and have been doing so for over 15 years.
