Shifting back to your home suddenly might seem extremely daunting, especially when you have to do it to avoid jeopardizing your health. In such a case, many have to make quick decisions when they have a car. Should they drive back or should they ship their car instead?


Let’s look at the pros and cons of each of them:


Most states are putting curbs on venturing out to contain the spread of the virus. Due to this, cross-country driving might not be advisable. If the car breaks down, you might be stranded midway in the deserted roads. Moreover, with the situation changing every hour, it’s important to get to the safety of your home as soon as possible.

But at the same time, it’s also important to acknowledge that driving will lessen your chances of coming into contact with the virus. However, the stops you make on the way might again expose you to the virus as you will be interacting with people. Driving at night when you’re so, so stressed-out is another issue altogether.


Cross country shipping has really been made simple and easy in this day and age. You can simply drop your car at a given terminal and complete the formalities with the service provider, post which your car will be delivered to your doorstep in a few days. This means that you won’t have to worry about your car and instead will be able to reach home within a matter of hours by traveling via air.

While air travel carries significant risks, it’s also important to remember that people at airports are more likely to follow the sanitation protocol mandated by WHO as they too will be worried about their health and safety. Moreover, appropriate testing is done when it comes to air travelers and they are also ordered to quarantine themselves, something that you will miss if you drive home.
