How To Use The Car Shipping Calculator

Published by Joe Webster.

Car Shipping Calculator

Car shipping companies are commercial businesses like any other. The primal objective of any commercial-based company is to maximize its returns. Automobile shipping is the service we buy from them, and, of course, we have to part with a few coins to get that particular service. After all, the fee they charge is what keeps their lights on.

Generally, the cost of shipping a standard vehicle at A-1 Auto transport ranges between 50cts and $1.25 per mile. This is, of course, an implied general rule. However, there are specific details that dictate how much it will cost you to ship your car from point A to point B. These are the relevant input and particulars used by the company to formulate working algorithms that will maximize their service output at the least possible cost. These particulars are then factored into an application program on our website called the Domestic USA and International Car Shipping Calculator.

Cost Distance Estimate

What Dictates the Cost of shipping your car?

There are several factors pooled together to determine the final figure on the car shipping calculator. All these factors intertwine with each other, and a change in one might affect the overall figure given by the quote.

  1. Type of Vehicle

This is a factor used to determine the cost of shipping your vehicle. It will cost more to ship an RV, a bus , or a trailer truck than it would cost you to shift a simple two , or four-door car. Moreover, the “social class” of your vehicle also determines the cost. A luxury vehicle requires extra special attention compared to non-extravagant vehicles. You must know the vehicle make and vehicle model in-order-to get a quote.

  1. Location and Distance

The longer the miles covered the higher the quoted figure. Distance determines the cost the transport company incurs in fuel and the time it takes to complete a delivery. Our cost distance estimate paints a vague picture of how much it would cost you to ship your car to all major towns in the U.S. Shipping cars internationally will also, of course, cost you more than domestic shipping. Also, shipping your vehicle within a particular state is cheaper than interstate car shipping. Coast to Coast car shipping is also more expensive due to the great mileage covered.

  1. The weight of the vehicle

The weight of the vehicle is closely related to the type of vehicle. It is one of the silent determinants factored in determining the cost of shipping a car. Understanding the weight of your vehicle is an essential thing. It will help you understand why the figure appearing on the quote is as so.

  1. Type of Delivery

The arrangement on delivery also dictates the figure on the car shipping calculator. There are two available options for delivery; door-to-door and terminal-to-terminal delivery. Comparison in price is more often than most significant. Door-to-door delivery tends to be more expensive compared to terminal-to-terminal delivery. This is because, for door-to-door delivery, the car is delivered to your home address. This may mean extra mileage on our part. However, this does not mean that terminal-to-terminal delivery is cheaper. No, not always. It depends on miscellaneous factors. Delivering your car at a pickup point may mean extra parking and shelter fees on your part.

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.
