How much to ship a car

You have a big move coming up. You scored a great new job in Colorado, but if you have more than one car, or a boat, a motorcycle, or an RV, you’re going to have to quickly figure out how to get those vehicles out of New York and to your new home.

If you find that you know that rim refinishing, to one extent or another, is required for your vehicle, then it’s likely that you’ll have a few questions. Hopefully this QandA will clear up any confusion, and help you get whatever work needs to be done on your rims.
