Car Transport Quote
Getting a car transport quote isn’t as easy as just giving a customer a price. There are many factors that go into a car transport price such as:
- The location of the pick up and delivery locations
- The time of year and current weather conditions
- Fuel costs as the time
- The size of the vehicle
- The type of car transport service you’re looking for
Lets dive into each factor listed above.
Location For Pick Up & Delivery
The easiest route in America for shipping a car is Miami, FL to Los Angeles, CA. Thousands of cars are being transported every month doing this exact route. This means that the price is also a little more favorable for customers. The location in proximity to a major metropolitan area and/or major Interstate Highway helps with the ease of the transport which helps your overall cost.
Time Of Season & Currect Weather Conditions
Pricing does seem to fluctuate during the 4 seasons of the year. Normally the northerns routes are a little more expensive during the winter because of the snow, and ice on the roads. Snowbird season is also a time when pricing fluctuates. Many people that live in the Northearn United States live there for the summer and move down to Florida starting in October. These routes will have different pricing during different times of the year.
This is associated with gas and diesel pricing changing throughout the year and if there is a sudden spike in diesel costs, which does happen from time to time.
Size Of The Vehicle
The size of the vehicle can make a difference in the car transport quote. The price for a Toyota Camry is going to be less than a Ford F-150. The length, width, height and weight are all factors to the pricing.
Type Of Car Transport Service
There are 3 types of car transport services that will cause a difference in your price. Open car transport will be the easiest and cheapest way to ship a car. Then we move to covered car transportation. This is slightly more expensive because the hauler is covered in a canvas type material to keep most road devris away from your vehicle during shipping. The last type of car transport service is enclosed car transport. This is the most expensive, but most secure way to ship a car. The vehicles are loaded into a hauler that looks like a semi-truck and it is 100% secure from the elements of Mother Nature.
