Looking to possibly move from NY to Ca next year. I would be shipping my Jeep Wrangler. Anyone have an idea of how much? Also- are you allowed to pack your vehicle? It would not be valuable items but maybe some clothes, small piece of furniture, a dog crate, etc. Looking to do this move as cheaply as possible and was hoping i would be able to pack the truck with most of my belongings.

If you are hiring a moving company, ask them if they will carry your Jeep along with you household things.

Unless you're in the military, you may want to think twice about bringing your car to CA from out of state, because it can cost you a small fortune to transfer everything over, pay sales tax on it, etc.

Make sure your car will pass California emission standards. This CA DMV publication will tell you how: ttps://www.dmv.ca.gov/portal/wcm/connect/4a6b05aa-1e88-4e31-ac02-453e3a71c7c7/ffvr29.pdf?MOD=AJPERES

If it won't pass smog, best to sell it and buy a new one in California.

Regarding shipping, shop around. We shipped a car from California to Michigan and found different shipping brokers gave different estimates. We finally settled on a broker who was able to give us a rate of about $1000. But, you may pay more depending on where you are shipping from/to and how many truckers are going that way.
