Car shipping companies are commercial businesses like any other. The primal objective of any commercial based company is to maximize their 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.

There are several factors pooled together to determine the final figure on the car shipping calculator. All these factors intertwine each other, and a change in one might affect the overall figure given by the quote.
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.
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.
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.
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 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 is not to 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.

Joe Webster began his journey in the auto transport field by attending the University of Southern California (USC), where he graduated with a Bachelor of Business Marketing.
After college, he started his career in the auto transport industry from the bottom up and has done virtually every job there is to do at A-1 Auto Transport, including but not limited to: Truck Driver, Dispatch, Sales, PR, Bookkeeping, Transport Planner, Transport Manager, International Transport Manager, Brokering, Customer Service, and Marketing. Working with his mentor Tony Taylor, Joe Webster has learned the ins and outs of this industry which is largely misunderstood.
With over 30 years experience in the industry, we've been helping people ship their vehicles, motorcycles, RV's, heavy equipment, household goods and more across the country or overseas without a hitch. Ask us anything.
Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.
And my 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.
The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.
When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.
The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.
They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?
So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to 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!
If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.
I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!
The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!
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.
After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.
Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.
By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.
We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.
We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
