How is My Car Shipping Cost Calculated?

The cost to ship your car is determined by a combination of several factors. These include the distance the car needs to travel, the type and size of your vehicle, the kind of transport you prefer, the pick-up and drop-off locations, the time of year, current fuel prices, and the speed at which you need the car delivered.
For instance, longer distances, larger vehicles, and enclosed transport methods typically affect the overall cost. Also, costs can fluctuate depending on the time of year and current fuel prices. We take pride in being the leading auto transport company to take advantage of machine learning and AI to assist in providing you with an accurate rate quote.
Our team of auto train specialists is always available to discuss your specific needs and preferences. We aim to provide the best value possible, taking into account the factors most important to you.
To make things easy, we have a car shipping calculator available. Just enter your origin, destination, and the make and model of your vehicle, and you’ll receive an instant estimate of your car shipping cost. This tool takes all of the factors above into account, providing a quick and efficient way to determine the cost to move your car.

Yes, you can pay the full transport cost via credit card. If you want to pay in full online, you can do so at the time of booking either online or by phone with a shipping agent. With this option, you can make a convenient, one-time payment with a credit or debit card. You also have the option of paying a deposit with your credit card and then paying the rest of your remining balance with cash upon delivery.

You should have about a quarter of a tank of gas in your car at the time of shipment. This leaves enough for the car to be loaded and unloaded but doesn't add much additional weight.

We offer open car shipping and enclosed car shipping services. Open car shipping is used much more frequently and is the type of auto transport that you see on the highway where carriers are hauling vehicles on two decks that are exposed. Enclosed car shipping is when your vehicle is shipped in a trailer which has walls and a roof, they look like a larger version of a regular eighteen-wheeler. This method is recommended for luxury, exotic or classic cars.

Yes, online tracking is available to you 24 hours a day and is updated in real time. Upon scheduling your shipment, you will receive a unique booking number that will allow you to track the status of your shipment online. Your tracking portal will also give you the ability to live chat with a shipping agent that can answer any questions you may have regarding the status of your shipment.

The driver will get the car transporter as close to your door as he can legally and safely get. In most cases, the driver will be able to pickup and deliver directly at your door. Some cities may have restrictions on large trucks that prohibit them from driving into residential areas. Auto transport trucks are large and need lots of room to maneuver and turn around, so if access to the pickup or delivery location is restricted by narrow streets, low-hanging trees or tight turns, the driver may ask that you meet at a location nearby with a large parking lot, such as a grocery store.

Yes, through our advanced network of specialized carrier nationwide, we can ship vehicles of any size. However, you will need to call for a specialized rate quote based on the dimensions of the oversized vehicle you would like to ship. Our online quote calculator will not be able to generate a quote for you because pricing via the calculator is based only on standard and unmodified vehicle sizes and specfications.

Yes, however any vehicle with clearance lower than 4 inches will likely need to be shipped on an enclosed trailer with a lift gate. Low-clearance vehicles simply cannot be driven onto an open trailer because the car would risk bottoming out while being loaded onto the carrier.
