Average Cost to Ship a Car

How Much Does It Cost to Ship a Car?

Price… one of the most influential factors we all consider when making a decision right before committing to getting your vehicle shipped in statewide & cross country.

Pricing the transport shipping is tricky and that’s something most car shippers know but hesitate to admit…

But there’s a simple truth behind it:

The pricing depends on many factors. This door to door transportation industry or auto transport industry requires a team effort and not having consistent variables at all times creates infrequent glitches that we have to work with.

Since we’d like to be more transparent with our team (yes, that includes you!), we’ll give you the details as to what determines your car shipping cost:

Vehicle classification

Determining the type of vehicle is important for drivers to know what they are working with so that they can do their math with the space that they have when they are arranging their open transport & enclosed transport routes.

Distance and route

Drivers choose where they go and choose their vehicles accordingly. The cost of transport becomes easier when the locations are attractive for drivers to go to because they are near major highways and popular routes.

The popularity of the route

Popular routes are usually priced friendly and with a lot of open carriers willing to transport your vehicle. If your route happens not to be popular, carriers think twice about going there and estimate their price according to how far out it is from their current route.

Terrain accessibility

Our drivers do the best they can to get closer to your location. However, as responsible drivers, they know their limits to keep their loads safe. When this is the case, drivers prefer to arrange a point where they can meet up with the pickup or delivery contacts.

The urgency of pick up and delivery

If you’re looking for a quick pickup and delivery, this would be considered express delivery since you are receiving priority. As a result, drivers will work with your specific timeframes and price it accordingly.
