What is the Cost for Shipping an Automobile 500 Miles?
The act of shipping a car through professionals is often practiced by dealerships, manufacturers and individuals relocating. It’s the safest and most affordable way to ship a car anywhere in the world even if it’s only 500 miles away. Domestic car shipping services are actually cost effective in comparison to any alternative methods of transport you may come up with, even if you choose to do it yourself.
When you ship through experienced and licensed auto transporters such as A1 Auto Transport, you can expect that the car will safely make it to its new home 500 miles away without any complications. At A1, we guarantee the safe delivery of your vehicle by protecting it under our insurance policy.
How Is the Cost of Shipping a Car through Professionals Calculated?
Every transport company has the right to set their own car shipping rates. However, the cost of shipping is determined off many factors and these are usually similar across all transporters.
- The time of year the transport is to be made has a lot to do with the shipping process. Off seasons where colder weather is a concern are usually cheaper times to ship a car domestically.
- The current cost of fuel at the time of your transport.
- The shipping services used to transport the car 500 miles. Open air services tend to be the cheapest option.
- The current cost per mile at the time of your car’s transport.
- The model, make and age of the vehicle.
