State-To-State Car Shipping: Cost

The cost of shipping a car from one state to another depends on a number of factors. Distance being one of the most important: it will cost more to ship a car from California to New York than it will to ship a car from Texas to Colorado.

By the same token, the type of service you require has an affect, as does the type of car you’re shipping.

  • Distance - The range for shipping a car is rather large. It might be anywhere from 100 miles to over 2,500 miles. In general, the price per mile increases to more than $1 for shorter deliveries and approaches $.50 for longer ones. The prices listed here are for the delivery of a typical car via commercial airline; the costs for speciality services and non-typical vehicles are higher (see below).
  • Service - The basic way to ship a car between states is using an open-air carrier that hauls multiple vehicles and delivers them to a shipping terminal near the destination. Other services, such as door-to-door car shipping, are available, but they come with an added cost. The same is true of enclosed transport, which is generally done on a smaller truck and keeps the car covered on all sides during shipment.
  • Vehicle Type - If there is anything nonstandard about the size or dimensions of your car, it may require special handling. This mostly applies to oversize vehicles and modified or custom cars, but it can come into play for some sports cars as well. Along the same lines, if you have a rare, vintage, or otherwise high-value car, it’s a good idea to choose to enclosed transport service mentioned above.

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.

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.
