This is what we consider when determining your shipping rate:
The mileage between the origin and destination is the biggest factor that contributes to your total rate.
The type of vehicle being shipped will determine how much space is required on the transporter.
The date of your desired relocation will determine the amount of available truck space at that time.

How is my car transport cost calculated?
When determining your vehicle transport cost, there are a few things we consider to provide you with an accurate rate quote. The mileage between the origin and destination is the biggest factor that contributes to your total rate. In addition to the distance of your relocation, another factor is the type and condition of the vehicle being shipped. The final factor is the date of desired transportation. These factors are the biggest contributors to determining accurate vehicle shipping costs.
Where will my car be picked up and delivered?
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 the truck at a large parking lot nearby, such as a grocery store.
How do I pay for my auto shipping?
All major credit cards, electronic transfer, postal money order, bank/certified check will be accepted for deposit or full pre-payment. If there is a balance due upon delivery, the vehicle shipping and car transport carrier will accept cash, bank/certified check, or postal money order.

Can I place an order if I don’t know the exact address?
Yes, the city and zip code will suffice until your exact pickup or delivery location is known.
What is the Bill of Lading and what exactly does it have to do with my shipment?
The Bill of Lading is a very important document used by car shipping companies that documents any pre-existing damage on the vehicle during the time of pickup. It also serves as a record of your contact info and the official agreement for transport. If you want to file any insurance claim regarding your shipment you will need the Bill of Lading.
