Calculating Car Shipping Rates
A few key factors impact the overall cost of shipping your vehicle. Understanding these factors helps you make an informed choice that aligns with your budget. We aim to offer transparent pricing, answer your questions, alleviate your concerns, and ensure the safe delivery of your car to its destination.
Distance: The Route Matters
The distance your vehicle needs to travel from Point A to Point B is one of the main factors impacting your car shipping rate. Cross-country moves, for instance, will cost more than a quick trip to a neighboring state, owing to the time and fuel required to transport your vehicle to its destination.
Vehicle Weight and Size:
Different car sizes affect the cost of shipping. Lighter, more compact vehicles occupy less space, typically resulting in a lower price. Conversely, larger vehicles, such as trucks or SUVs, can increase your rate due to their size and weight.
Open or Enclosed:
Open carriers offer a more cost-effective solution, although they expose your car to the elements. This method is the most popular and economical choice. Conversely, enclosed carriers offer additional protection, but at a higher price. They are an excellent option for transporting luxury, exotic, or classic vehicles.
Seasonal Fluctuations: Timing is Key
If you plan to ship your car during the peak moving seasons of spring and summer, expect a price increase. High demand drives up prices. For a more budget-friendly option, consider shipping your vehicle during the off-peak seasons, if your schedule allows flexibility.
