What is the Cost of Shipping a Car from Miami?

Moving to a new location from Miami, whether it be a few miles, across the state or even to the other side of the country or overseas, the last thing a person needs to worry about is how to move their car safely. It can be dangerous to drive your vehicle to the new location, especially if you are moving far away, not to mention the added mileage you would be adding. You can avoid these dangers and mileage by hiring a professional car transportation service. Costs to use these services vary, depending on several factors.

Factors to consider the cost of shipping a car from Miami include:

Location & Distance

One factor affecting the costs for transporting your car is distance. Of course, the further your car ships, the more expensive it will be. However, this is not always the case. Oftentimes, shipping a vehicle to a small rural area, away from any major highways can cost more than one shipping to further location. An example would be shipping from a major city such as Miami to a major New Your city costing less than shipping to a rural remote town in New York. The location is more of a factor in this example than distance.

Transport Type – Enclosed or Open

Shipping a car from Miami can be done in either an enclosed trailer or open. Most of transportation services consider open as their standard method of shipping. Auto dealerships, as well as private customers, use this less expensive method most for their transportation needs. An enclosed trailer is the chosen method mostly used for transporting antique, luxury, and sports vehicles. More protection is provided with an enclosed trailer due to the vehicle being fully covered. Road and weather elements are unable to damage the vehicle with this type of transportation. However, having your vehicle shipped from Miami using an enclosed trailer is the most expensive method for transporting.

Time of Year

Another factor to take into cost consideration is the time of year the vehicle is being transported. For example, during the time of year when snowbirds frequently are leaving or entering Florida the demand for transportation is high. Which means, costs are higher during them times of the year.

Current Fuel Costs

The total cost for shipping a car from Miami is affected also by fuel price fluctuation. Fuel costs are in constant change. This means, what it might cost for shipping one week, does not necessarily mean it would be the same amount the following week. Auto transportation services everywhere are affected by these changing fuel costs.

A qualified auto transportation service company will explain all the factors involved that are considered in their pricing. Make sure to ask any questions to get a full understanding of what you are paying for.
