How can Shipping a Car be so Affordable?

rental-car-shipping.jpg

There was a time when $500 could get your car shipped from coast to coast in the U.S. from Florida to California, but those days are long gone. While technology and more efficient practices have helped to streamline the auto transport industry and bring down costs, rising gas prices and the increase of specialized services have counterbalanced those savings. In today’s world, most coast-to-coast auto shipments would run at least $1,000 per car.

This raises the question of just how far you can get a car shipped for $500. In this blog post, we’ll take a look at some recent numbers that reflect the current value you can find in terms of distance. First, let’s talk about the cheapest way to ship a car in general.

There are two major options you have when shipping a vehicle, both of which will affect the total cost. The first is the type of carrier used to transport the vehicle. An open air auto carrier that hauls several cars at once is the cheaper option since the cost is split several ways. Alternately the more pricey option would be an enclosed carrier that usually only moves one or two cars at once.

Tied into this is the second option: the method of delivery. If you choose to have a car shipped directly to your home, referred to as door-to-door auto transport, it comes with a higher cost. The more affordable option is to have your car shipped to a delivery terminal where you then pick it up.

To sum it up, the best way to find cheap auto transport for $500 or less is to choose an open carrier and delivery to a shipping terminal.

Costing For Shipment According To Distance

The per-mile cost breakdown of having a car shipped depends, to some extent, on the distance, it’s being shipped. To give an example, a car shipped 200 miles will cost more on a per mile basis than the same car shipped 700 miles. On the cheap car transport end of the spectrum, rates can be as low as 50 cents per mile. On the upper end, it can be close to a dollar per mile. Let’s take a look at some recent numbers to get a better idea.

  • Las Vegas, NV to Salt Lake City, UT - $495
  • Los Angeles, CA to San Francisco, CA - $447
  • Jacksonville, FL to Nashville, TN - $481
  • Indianapolis, IN to Washington, D.C. - $437
  • PIttsburgh, PA to Boston, MA - $459
  • Minneapolis, MN to Chicago, IL - $431
