Have you been searching for a company to transport your electric or hybrid car? If so, you may have found out that not all auto transport companies will transport these car, and the ones who do may charge an extra fee to do so. This is all because of the batteries used in these cars. Seems like an odd reason to turn down a car for transport doesn’t it? Electric and hybrid cars have lithium ion batteries and these batteries are heavier than the standard car battery.
Transport carriers can only hold so much weight, and once they reach their limit, they can’t haul more cars. If a carrier has a few electric cards loaded on it, it could potentially cause the driver to not be able to load the number of cars that could normally be loaded, thus the company might lose a little money.
Some companies refuse to haul electric and hybrid cars for a simple reason. They just don’t realize that there is no difference in transporting an electric car, a hybrid car or a regular car. The cars all have four wheels and can be driven onto a truck and secured in place. Nothing at all about that differs from the other.
