What Determines the Price of Auto Transport Quotes?

Many factors can impact the final cost of shipping your auto. Planning ahead and determining the type of service you need are key steps that you can take early in the process to ensure that everything will go smoothly.

Price is an important consideration with any auto transport quote. As with most industries, the price can vary based on which company you go with and which services you need. Here are the main considerations in determining the price of your auto transport quote:

  • Distance vehicle is being transported
  • Size and type of the auto
  • Time of year
  • Route taken for delivery
  • Delivery method
  • Additional insurance, if necessary
  • Properly following preparation guidelines

The distance that your auto is being transported is the main factor in determining the final cost. The further the move, the more it is likely going to cost.

The size and type of auto also affect the final price. The larger the auto, the more it will likely cost to transport. This is why it’s important to provide the most detailed, accurate information possible when requesting a quote.

The time of year is an important consideration as well. Rates are typically lower during winter months, although it should be noted that weather conditions can be more severe during this time of year. If you have concerns about your auto being moved through a colder climate, enclosed auto transport is a good option.

The route taken by the driver can also have an impact on the final price. Routes that start and end in larger cities tend to be cheaper than others.

The method of transport you choose will also affect the cost of shipping your auto. For instance, terminal to terminal transport is cheaper than door to door and open air transport is cheaper than enclosed transport.

You’ll want to consider the cost of any additional insurance if you’re having a high end, classic or luxury car moved. While most quotes will include basic insurance coverage, it’s typically a good idea to get extra coverage for high-value vehicles.

Lastly, it’s important to make sure you follow the instructions and preparation procedures laid out by your auto transporter. A missed detail such as too much gas in the tank or leaving personal items in the vehicle can end up adding an unexpected cost to your service.

Buyer Beware: Things to Keep in Mind

When requesting an auto transport quote, it’s important to keep in mind that the cheapest quote isn’t always the best one. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Most likely, an unusually low quote means the mover is going to tow your vehicle, likely without sufficient insurance coverage and potentially with per-mile charges and overage fees.

Make sure you’re informed of all your options before making a decision! Call us at 1-800-452-2880 with any questions or to start learning about your auto transport options today!

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★ 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.

You have my full support and recommendation!

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!

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.
