How to know if I Can Ship My Car For Under $600?

If you’re shipping a car within the continental U.S., the answer to this question is generally going to be “yes.” Naturally, there are several things that can affect the cost of shipping a car and those costs can fluctuate. As a result, you may find that one auto transport company is able to ship a car for less than $600, while another may not. In this article, we’ll unpack some of the reasons for this and explain how to find an affordable shipping at a reasonable costs.

How Far Can You Ship A Car For $600?

As mentioned above, how far you can ship a car for $600 depends on a couple factors and the size of the vehicle is an important one. For the purposes of this article, we’ll assume we’re talking about shipping a standard sized sedan or small truck. Larger and heavier vehicles come with an addition cost, as you might expect. As a general rule, a vehicle can be shipped 800-1000 miles for $600 or less.

To give you an idea, a vehicle shipped from Los Angeles, CA to Denver, CO would be in the neighborhood cost-wise. Similarly, shipping a car from Jacksonville, FL to Chicago, IL would be around the same cost. Anything more than about 1,000 miles and it becomes difficult to find a reputable company to transport your car for under $600.

To learn more about what goes into the cost of shipping a vehicle and what can affect the final cost, this page has more information.

Affordability & Convenience: Finding The Sweet Spot.

If you contact five different shippers to get an estimate on the cost of shipping your vehicle, you’ll likely get five different prices. Because this is the case, there are a few strategies you can use to help you get the best value when picking a transport company.

Shop around - This may seem like a no-brainer, but many customers often choose the first shipper they contact. Just like any other type of service, your mileage will vary depending on who you partner with so it’s to your advantage to familiarize yourself with what’s available. The best method for doing this is picking up the phone and talking to the shippers you’re considering. Ease and clarity of communication are important in this industry so make sure that any company you choose exhibits these traits.

Discounts - Another way to mitigate the cost of shipping a vehicle is to inquire about discounts. Many car shipping companies have discounts available, with some of them being very generous. Retired and active duty military often qualify for a price break, as do seniors, AAA members, snowbirds, and multiple vehicle shipments. These specials may not always be advertised, so make sure you ask! It can be the difference of $100 or more in some cases.

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.
