How much does it cost to transport a car? What car shipping methods do you offer?

Do you want to know how much it will cost to ship your car?

We provide open automobile transport and enclosed car shipping services. Open automobile transport is used more regularly and is the form of car shipping which you see on the road wherein car transporters are hauling cars on 2 decks that are exposed.

Enclosed automobile transport is when your automobile is sent in a trailer that has partitions and a roof, they seem like a bigger model of an ordinary eighteen-wheeler. This technique is usually recommended for luxury, exotic, or traditional/classic cars.

Enclosed auto transport carriers are more expensive, but it is a great alternative to ship a car that is more expensive or one that requires more care during the car shipping process. Most people use open auto transport as it is the more budget-friendly way to ship a car.

There are a few factors that we take into account when determining your car shipping cost.

The mileage between the origin zip code and the destination zip code is usually the biggest factor that contributes to your total auto shipping rates.

In addition to the distance of your relocation, another factor is the type, year, and condition of the vehicle being transported. The final factor is the date that your vehicle will be ready for transport.

Do you ship oversized or modified vehicles?

Yes, we can ship cars of any kind/size. Through our advanced network of experienced and specialized car carriers.

Can you transport a car with low ground clearance?

Any low-clearance cars lower than 4 inches will most likely need to be transported on an enclosed trailer with a lift gate. Vehicles with low clearance just cannot be driven onto an open trailer (regardless of what a company may say) because the car would risk bottoming out while being loaded onto the carrier.

Do you offer top-load service for car transportation?

For those who don’t know, top-load service is the term used when your car is placed on the higher deck or upper level of an open car transport trailer. This is preferable to the bottom load because the cars on the lower deck are at risk of possibly having fluid from the cars above leak on them. (Yes, really)

Must the car be empty? Or may I put stuff inside the vehicle?

It’s your car. So, you may ship your personal belongings but the total weight of those items cannot be more than a hundred pounds and those items must be left in the trunk or back seats (under the window line).

IMPORTANT: Please note that your personal belonging will not be covered under insurance if they are reported as damaged or missing.

What are estimated transit times for auto transportation?

 

Generally speaking, every five hundred miles will add one day to the transit time – so for a 2,000-mile transport, the transit time would be 4-5 days.

The transit time for your car shipment is based mostly on the distance between the pickup and delivery location.

Most car shipping companies will call a day ahead of schedule when they have narrowed down the delivery window to make arrangements with you for time and location as close to your location as they can physically get.

Must I be present for pick up or delivery?

Absolutely. Someone must be present to release and then to accept the vehicle once it is delivered, provide keys to the driver and sign the initial and final inspection paperwork. This person must be over the age of 18.

Do the vehicle delivery inspection once the vehicle has been unloaded from the car shipping truck. Go around the whole vehicle again and take pictures on all 4 sides and the top, check the interior for any damages as well, and make sure there are no major fluctuations to the mileage on the odometer.

Do all shipments include basic liability coverage during transit?

You will be able to select a level of coverage during the booking process. If you have further questions regarding insurance options, please, list them when you fill out the contact form found above.

Will the size or type of vehicle affect the shipping cost?

Yes, it will. The actual size and type of vehicle directly influence your car shipping price. Larger/Bulkier vehicles are heavier (trucks or vans) than a typical car, and as a result, can cost more for auto transport services.

We focus on car transport services for autos, trucks, and SUVs, but we can move more than just those. Always check with us as we can arrange auto shipping services for many different vehicles including vans, dual-wheel trucks, box trucks, and larger vehicles that require flatbed or lowboy car shipping services.

Make sure that you have the dimensions of any oversize vehicle available that you want to ship, as we will require the dimensions before giving you a car transport quote.
