WHAT DETERMINES THE PRICE
If you’re moving your vehicle across state lines over a considerably long distance, you will pay more than someone covering a relatively shorter stretch. As the shipping company, we will incur more costs during larger assignments as compared to shorter distances. Such expenses include fuel and labor charges, as well as toll fees along the way.
- The size and the weight of the vehicle
Typically, bigger and heavier cars cost more in transportation fees. Smaller vehicles, on the other hand, cost relatively less over a similar distance. Depending on the size, your transporter may need a bigger trailer, which translates to a higher fuel cost. These increased expenses reflect on the transport cost on your end.
- The make and model
The type of vehicle is a vital consideration in the pricing phase, and classic or luxury cars typically cost more in transportation fees than regular sedans. Additional costs come due to the level of detail and individualized attention necessary during transportation.
- The transportation method
Enclosed carriers cost more than open-air ones. Depending on your budget, you may opt for the cheaper option, which guarantees a reasonable degree of safety. Expensive car models, however, demand more protection from the elements and a lower risk of damage. As a result, closed trailers remain the best option.
- The time of year
There is a notable increase in demand for transportation services during winter compared to the summer season. At this time of the year, frozen roads and other dangers translate to an increased risk for the shipping company. Increased demand and a heightened risk level for the transporter brings about higher fees for the clients.
