Costs In Car Shipping

Many website out there will offer an auto transport quote calculator, when in effect, it’s actually just a form to fill out for a cost estimate. Unfortunately, there are too many things to affect the cost of shipping a vehicle to have an easy, one-size-fits-all approach to determining the cost on a customer to customer basis. The cost of a job can vary based on subtle things like fluctuations in the cost of gas, or even a certain time of year.

 Click here to get started right away with a FREE auto transport estimate from a live shipping agent!

The first thing we’ll address is what you’re paying for when you hire an auto shipper. Most prices you’ll find will be somewhere between 50 cents to one dollar per mile, depending on a couple things. This price includes pick up and delivery, insurance against any damages caused by the shipper, and of course the cost of gas, labor and other types of overhead the company needs to cover.

Insurance is one of the more important aspects of shipping in our view, as it protects the customer from potential problems or concerns when you’re entrusting another party to ship your vehicle. In the section below, we’ve included a listing of auto transport quotes that we’ve calculated for customers over the past year which you can use as to estimate certain shipping distances.

Calculating Value: Unexpected Costs In Car Shipping.

Car shipping Rates

There are a few other things that will affect what you pay for car shipping and, quite frankly, some of them should be considered, depending on what type of vehicle or service you need. For example, if you’re shipping a high-end or luxury car, you’ll probably want to use an enclosed carrier as opposed to an open one. The reason being that an enclosed carrier offers a level of protection and security that simply isn’t available on an open air carrier.

Two other extras that can spell an unanticipated cost are storage and additional insurance. Short-term storage is an option if you’re unable to be present when your vehicle arrives and additional insurance is usually only a concern for particularly high value, vintage, or exotic vehicles.

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... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
