The Cost To Ship A Car Depends On Many Different Factors

The cost to ship a car can vary depending on the time of year, vehicle size and weight, the car’s overall condition, the trailer type you choose to use, and the route your shipment will travel. There are different factors that affect the cost of shipping a car. At ASAP Transport Solutions, we offer many ways to ship a car.

Things Affecting the Cost to Ship a Car:

Vehicle size and type

Oversized vehicles need special equipment or driver expertise and that can impact the cost to ship a car.

Origin and destination

Heavily traveled routes between cities (e.g. Dallas to Houston) are usually cheaper than less traveled routes (e.g. Boise to Minneapolis) because fewer carriers are available to go there.

Condition of the auto

A car that won’t operate will need a winch to load, while an expensive new Porsche will need a more protective trailer. Special equipment will impact the cost to ship a car.

The cost to ship a car depends on many factors.Route and distance

Some routes are more expensive and time consuming than others. We know which routes are the best so we can manage costs and help control your bottom line.

Time of year

It’s more difficult and expensive to move a car in 5-degree weather in Chicago than it is to move a car on a 90-degree day in Miami.

Type of trailer used

An open trailer is least expensive, but the auto(s) are exposed to road debris and weather. An enclosed trailer protects the car(s) from the elements but is more expensive.
