Factors That Affect the Cost to Ship Your Car
Rate Variables Explained
METRO OR RURAL
This impacts the number of truckers traveling to a specific location. Transport to less populated areas will increase the price to ship a car.
OPERABLE OR INOPERABLE
Transporting non-drivable vehicles increases your rate.
Market and seasonal demands affect route popularity and car shipping costs.
Special Vehicle Considerations
Additional accommodations may be necessary for the following conditions. Please let your booking agent know and we will make the appropriate arrangements.
- Modified vehicles
- Vehicles over 7 feet tall
- Ground clearance that is under 4 inches
- Non-rolling vehicles
- Shipping of multiple cars
You can request to have your car shipped on the top level of double-decker trucks (usually $75 extra). A car hauling trailer with a single deck is considered top-load as it guarantees that your car does not have a vehicle above it.
Requesting to have your car picked up ON or BY a specific date (and/or time) will increase your rates in order to accommodate for that specific time frame. Please call and speak with an agent to arrange a customized transport quote.
You can have your car shipped fast with a premium service, and a trucker will re-arrange his or her pre-determined route and schedule to accommodate your specific needs. Learn more.
