What Determines the Cost of Transport?
The cost of transport depends on a few different things. Number one, every company charges differently for their services so contact a few different companies to make sure you are receiving the best deal for your money. Distance is also another factor in how much your bill will be. The shipping method you choose is also going to affect the cost.
