Thank you for visiting Movers.com. Let me try to help you find out how much it would cost to ship a 30 passenger bus from Phoenix to Philadelphia.
Here at Movers.com, we have a wide range of movers in our network who can give you accurate quotes for moving jobs only after you provide them with some direct information. I could give you an estimate of what some of those quotes might be, but it really would be just a guess since I am not the one providing the service. Any number I give you could be misleading, so I rather not speculate.
What I can do, however, is direct you to our auto transport section. If you fill out the form with the information on the date and locations of the move, you will be directed to a list of Phoenix movers who can move automobiles to Philadelphia.
A 30 passenger bus is not a typical vehicle for shipping, so you may need to research each company and/or contact them to make sure that moving a vehicle that size across the country is within their capabilities.
You should also screen each company that you find and get quotes for the job from multiple moving companies. That is how you can get a true idea of what the cost of the job really is.
Types of auto transport
If you are comfortable with the bus being driven, then you could have the company do a drive-away service where they simply drive the bus to your destination.
If you rather not burn through gas and put any stress on the vehicle, you could possibly have the bus transported on a truckbed, depending on how big the bus really is. This option is more expensive than the drive away service option, however.
Enclosed shipping is a more safe and expensive option, but it will be difficult to find enclosed shippers with containers big enough to accomodate a small bus.
