How can Shipping a Car be so Affordable?

There was a time when $500 could get your car shipped from coast to coast in the U.S., 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 auto transport for $500 or less is to choose an open carrier and delivery to a shipping terminal.

How Far Can I Ship A Car For $500?

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 cheaper 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

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!
★★★★★

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.
★★★★★

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!
★★★★★

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
