Cost to Ship a Truck across the Country

To ship a truck across the U.S., it could cost anywhere from a few hundred dollars to a few thousand dollars. It all depends on a few things, such as how you would like the truck transported through the professionals.

Luckily, all auto transport services are set at reasonable rates so that they appeal to most budget types. A lot of individuals, dealerships and manufacturers use these services on a regular basis due to their low costs and high success rate.

Before shipping your truck off with just anyone, collect quotes from several different transport companies. Go over what each transporter has to offer and the rate they quoted you. Then book your transport with the best company.

The Information Needed to Receive the Most Honest Quote

When you receive a quick quote from a transporter, it is usually a roundabout figure that doesn’t reflect the true cost of shipping. You can get a more accurate quote by sharing some details about the vehicle and other information with the transport company. Have the following information prepared:

  • The car’s make and model.
  • The vehicle’s age and weight.
  • The address of the car’s pickup and drop off.
  • The services you plan on buying for the car’s transport.

Fees for permits and other small matters might also be included in your estimate. Make sure you ask what is included in the rate you receive.

Have Insurance Coverage

Insurance is typically provided by the transporter. Some transporters add this onto a customer’s shipping service purchase for free. This is how they guarantee their services.

Although there is a rare need to file an insurance claim after a transport, it is wise to have the vehicle protected. If a transport company doesn’t provide insurance, they probably shouldn’t be trusted with your car’s delivery.
