How Much Does It Cost To Ship Or Ship A Car From State To State?
Customers and potential customers frequently enquire about our rates by asking how much it would cost to transport a vehicle across the country. One important consideration that is often overlooked in this line of questioning is that the shipping distance is the primary determinant in pricing and that there can be a several hundred mile variation in the overall cost of shipping depending on the city you are shipping to or from. But before we get to the specifics, let's talk about what you should be on the lookout for when requesting a quote.
Before even considering contacting a company, you should know whether or not they have experience with interstate car towing. A longer history of successful shipments and satisfied customers is always a plus, but that doesn't mean that a company with only five years of experience is worse than one with twenty.
Finding an auto transport company that has worked in both the state you're shipping from and the one you're shipping to is just as important as having experience shipping over long distances. If they have an actual office in both places, or at least in the general area, that's a good sign. It stands to reason that if you need a car towed to the state of Kentucky, you'll want to make sure that the company you hire has terminals in the state, and preferably an office in the city or town where your vehicle will be shipped.
