How is my car transport cost calculated?

This is what we consider when determining your shipping rate:

Transport Distance

The mileage between the origin and destination is the biggest factor that contributes to your total rate.

Vehicle Type

The type of vehicle being shipped will determine how much space is required on the transporter.

Shipment Date

The date of your desired relocation will determine the amount of available truck space at that time.

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.

These factors are the biggest contributors to determining accurate vehicle shipping costs.


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.


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.
