Auto Transport Companies Price Matching

Like with many industries in the United States, the auto transport industry is one in which competition runs rampant. There's an abundance of auto transport carriers and brokers throughout the country that are all trying to be the service chosen by those looking to transport their vehicles. In order to remain competitive, auto transport companies heavily engage in competitive pricing. The winner of all of this is you, the customer. So how exactly does competitive pricing actually work? Find out below.

The Best Prices Are Found in Major Cities

With auto transport, you will be able to receive the best prices if you're shipping to or from a major city. Not only that, but the shipping services in cities are also much faster.

The reason for this is that most of the customers that choose auto transport services do so close to cities. As a result, auto carriers are able to transport multiple vehicles at once from a city in just one day, meaning that the high volume allows them to lower prices. Plus, auto transport companies have to deal with many rival companies in cities, so that means that they have to price themselves competitively.

Ultimately, if you're not happy with the prices that you are being offered, try and compromise a bit and see if you can have your vehicle picked up or dropped off at the nearest major city. Your wallet will thank you.

The Route Matters

Most auto transport companies plan their routes out based on the Interstate Highway System. It is by far the most efficient route to take for them. By taking the Interstate Highway, they're able to get to and from cities quite easily and thus, serve all of the major markets.

If you live in a remote location that's not close to the Interstate Highway, you should try and arrange a pick-up and a drop-off nearby it. Most auto transport companies will work with you in arranging a location that's mutually beneficial.

Remember, they rely on volume, and being along a major route allows carriers to transport more vehicles at a faster rate.

How Auto Transport Companies Engage In Competitive Pricing

Price Matching

You may not always get it, but don't be afraid to ask the auto transport company if they can match a rate offered by a competitor. Some may agree to discount their price to you slightly, but you'll have to offer proof of the competitor's rate. They'd rather make a small profit than lose your business entirely. Plus, they would hope that you would become a repeat customer in the future.

A-1 Auto Transport offers extremely competitive rates and will assist you as much as possible in having your vehicle transported at the best price possible.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★ choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

You have my full support and recommendation!

A1 Auto Transport... From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

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.
