What Determines the Cost of Shipping?

Truck Shipping Estimate
  • The specifications of the truck such as the model, age, and condition.
  • The pickup and drop off locations so the distance between them can be totaled into the cost.
  • The type of truck shipping services you decide to use.
  • The weight of the truck and any other items being transported.
  • The time of year often affects the price.
  • Current fuel costs.

To use the truck shipping calculator, simply fill out the requested information. Usually, it will begin by asking for the date you would like the transport to occur, as well as the locations for pickup and drop off. For a more accurate quote, call in and provide customer service with more details.

Don’t Forget About Insurance.

Never forget to ask the transport company about their insurance coverage. All reputable shipping companies should carry an insurance policy that protects all the vehicles that are in their care for the delivery process. Make sure that you also ask if your vehicle is protected up to its full value.

It is rare that an accident occurs during the shipping process, but after the truck is delivered to its destination, it’s wise to give it a look over. Check for any paint chips, scratches, dents or other visible markings. If you notice the damage that wasn’t there prior to the transport, tell the shipping company and they’ll file a report before an insurance claim can be filed.

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.
