How Shipping Multiple Vehicles Saves You Money

Less Complications Multiple Vehicles Shipping

Shipping multiple vehicles at once through an auto shipping company will result in significant cost savings. On the surface, this may seem surprising to many people, as one would think that paying for more than one vehicle to be shipped would seemingly mean doubling the shipping cost for two cars and so forth. In reality, however, auto transport companies will give you discounts in the vast majority of cases if you chose to ship more than one vehicle at once. The reasons for why these discounts and bulk shipping rates are offered are because of the following reasons:

  • It's Less Work for the Carrier

An auto shipper, when having to pick up and deliver vehicles, will often have to drive to different parts throughout the country, meaning that they will have to make more stops, drive greater distances, load and unload vehicles more frequently, and, in general, work harder. If they ship multiple vehicles that have the same pickup location and the same final destination, this considerably lessens the workload of the driver and the company, which translates into cost savings to you.

  • It Costs the Carriers Less Money

If they have to drive to a myriad of locations in order to pick up and deliver vehicles for different customers, this means that the greater driving distance increases their fuel costs, maintenance costs, and the amount that the car carrier has to pay their driver. The carrier will thus be saving a great deal of money, even by offering you a discount, which is why they prefer multiple vehicles being shipped from and to the same addresses.

Cost Savings Multiple Vehicles
  • They Can Fill Transport Trucks Faster

The sooner a transport company is able to fill a transport truck, whether it's an enclosed or open trailer, the sooner they can take off for delivery and the sooner they can start the process all over again. Transport carriers don't have an unlimited supply of trucks at their disposal, so by being able to get done as quickly as possible, they can work on getting their transport vehicles filled up for the next shipment quicker as well. In addition, it's also more cost-effective for them to have transport trucks at full capacity rather than only being partially full.

  • They Want Repeat Business

Many of those who request for multiple vehicles to be shipped or have a need for it are car dealerships, auto auction houses, and car collectors. Carriers want repeat business and a steady stream of business, meaning that they'll offer various incentives in the form of discounts in order to make sure that's the case, even if it causes a dip in their profit margins. Car transport companies and brokers rely on volume sales and will want to provide various incentives to make sure that customers remain loyal.

  • A Car Transport Broker Will Be Charged Less

When a car transport broker is tasked with having to find a shipping company for your order, they take a commission. But when you chose to ship multiple vehicles, they will be able to find one shipping company, especially if it's with the same addresses. The shipping company will charge them less per vehicle, meaning that the deposit fee will be lower. They are thus able to charge you a lower fee.

Understandings the reasons why you are charged less for shipping multiple vehicles is important, but, to make sure that you have a good understanding of how you'll benefit, these are the reasons why it makes economical sense:

Fill Transport Trucks Faster
  • Cost Savings

The more vehicles that you ship, the more that you'll save on the price per vehicle and on the broker fees. For example, if it costs around 7 to 8 percent less to ship a second vehicle at once, you can expect that percentage to be even higher on the third vehicle and so on.

  • Time Savings

It takes a great deal of time for a driver to load and unload vehicles. By shipping multiple vehicles at once, he will not have to complete this process as often, which can save days on the shipping time. It can take a few hours a day to load and unload vehicles from the truck. Additionally, since there will be less stops that have to be made, the shipping time will also be less in many instances.

  • Less Likelihood of Damage

The more time that your car is spent on the road, even in a trailer, the higher the likelihood that it suffers some damage. Also, since the driver will have to load and unload the vehicles less, there is less of a chance that your car will be damaged during this process. Shipping multiple vehicles at once decrease the chances of wear and tear and handling damage.

  • Less Complications

If you choose to ship multiple vehicles at once, rather than shipping each one individually at separate times, you'll deal with less of the complications that go along with route and schedule planning. You'll also have the benefit of having to deal with less hassle and paperwork, especially if there's an unexpected occurrence or scheduling change with one or more of your vehicles, including with insurance.

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.
