Cost Factors In Transport: Weight, Equipment & Shipping Routes.

  • Weight & Size - Weight and size are key factors in determining the cost of shipping, mainly because they can vary so much from one vehicle to another. There’s a big difference between transporting a pickup, an F-150, and a cement mixer truck because of the difference in dimensions and tonnage.
  • Equipment Required - Different sizes may require special equipment to safely ship from one location to another, particularly with regard to the size of and type of trailer needed. Some examples of the types of trailers used for transportation are flatbed, hotshot, single-drop, double-drop and step-deck, just to name a few. The right equipment is used for each type, model, and size of truck to avoid damage. If you are using open space trailer shipping, you also need to be mindful of the elements, weather, and road debris that may constitute some risk.
  • Location & Destination - As with any other type of vehicle transport, the delivery distance, transport type, and by extension the location and destination, also play a role in the overall cost of transporting. Mileage is a pretty simple car shipping cost to understand as it relates to fuel prices, but the delivery route during transit also plays a part in the price range of truck shipping. Some routes that are more frequently traveled tend to be less expensive than others (for example Florida to New York is a popular delivery route that offers more shipping options and cheaper prices than others.) This is especially true for long distance and cross country truck shipping. Shipping to and from a major metro area is generally a way of getting good value when you hire a pickup truck transport company.
  • Time of the year - The auto shipping industry has its peak and low seasons. If you ship during the low season, your cost will likely be lower compared to shipping when demand is high. Look at the situation of things before making your booking.
  • Insurance coverage - Every shipping company provides insurance while moving items for customers. However, it may just be for basic coverage. So the idea of purchasing additional insurance comes into play if you want full value protection for your asset.

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