How Much Does It Cost?
- Shipping a Lexus may cost anywhere from $150 upwards to $10,000. It depends on where you’re shipping it from and where you need it delivered. Other factors are also considered before a rate is determined such as current fuel costs and the shipping services selected.
- The cheapest and most cost effective way to ship a Lexus is through open air shipping methods. The vehicle must be operable to use this method of transport.
The process of shipping a Lexus to another city, state or nation should only be overlooked by professionals in the auto transport industry. Fortunately, there are many great, reliable transporters familiar with the delivery of luxury cars. These services are cost effective and usually priced at low rates. Just find an auto transporter with years of experience and all the right services.
Preparing the Lexus for Transport
Begin preparing the Lexus at least a week before the transport especially if it must undergo maintenance or inspections. Preparation keeps everyone, including the vehicle, safer. Clean the exterior and interior of the luxury car. Take off any items that weren’t originally a part of the car. Check all of the fluids. The fuel tank should read ¼ full or less. All other fluids should be drained from the car completely.
The day of the transport, the Lexus will be fastened inside of an enclosed container or on top of an open air hauler. The way it is secured for transport is dependent on the shipping method chosen. Some transport companies will offer door to door delivery so that you’re not held responsible for the exotic car’s pickup and drop off at terminals.
Watch your Lexus as it makes its way to its destination through the satellite tracking services. These are usually added free of cost to the shipping services you purchased. This isn’t the only thing tacked on to your shipping process for free. Insurance coverage is offered free of charge to every shipping customer.
