AmeriFreight ensures your car shipment from New York to Virginia, or Virginia to New York will be as fast, easy, and cost-effective as possible. We ensure the lowest, most transparent prices in the industry while adhering to the highest standards throughout the process.

The cost to ship a car will vary based on the following factors:

  • Distance - Car shipping rates change depending on distance, and the further we travel, the lower the rate per mile. In-state car transport will be $3 per mile, while coast-to-coast rates start as low as 50¢ per mile.
  • Size - Larger vehicles take up more space in a trailer, so they will incur a higher fee.
  • Weight - Your carrier will have a maximum weight for their trailer. This means the more your car weighs, the more you'll have to pay to ship it.
  • Condition -If your vehicle is inoperable, we'll likely need a forklift or winch to secure it on our trailer. If this service is required, you'll have to pay an additional fee.
  • Type - Some types of vehicles require specific arrangements on a trailer. For example, convertibles need top-loading to avoid leaks. Your shipment price may reflect these requirements.
  • Time - If you're flexible on your vehicle's arrival time, you will receive a lower shipping rate. Expedited cars require an additional fee.
