How Is the Cost of Shipping My Car Determined?
The cost of transport is reliant on a few details that the transport company will ask you as you’re on the phone with them. The transport company is able to give you a rough estimate on the cost of the transport without all the details but it may not resemble the honest pricing of your shipping process. Certain information is needed to calculate an individual’s shipping costs.
Below, are some of the questions you will be expected to answer while calling around for car shipping prices.
- The route taken to deliver your car 1800 miles away

After receiving more details from you about the car and your desired shipping services, the transporter is capable of coming up with an honest quote. It is always wise to gather several quotes before choosing a company to have your car shipped through. Don’t hastily jump on board with the company to offer you the lowest rates. Make sure they uphold a great reputation and offer the services you desire. They should also carry all the right qualifications and proof of being a licensed transport company.
