IMPORTANT: Never always rely on price alone to make the final decision. Put other crucial information available to you into consideration until you finally accept a specific auto transport quotes

When we talk of auto transport rates, I know you would want to know what influences the price quotes that you get.  

Each car shipping company developed criteria that it uses in compiling the shipping price. The following are some things that companies consider when compiling shipping quotes.  

The place for Pick-up and Drop-off of the vehicle:

This is regarded as one major factor that determines the price given in the quote for auto transport services. The company will evaluate the place you are shipping the car and the distance between the pick-up and drop-off area or state.

The category of vehicle that you want to ship:

Vehicles that are larger in size will be more expensive to ship than others. Most SUV’s, cargo vans, pickup buses etc. have with them an associated overweight shipping cost. These are evaluated depending on the weight and size of the vehicle involved and is fully added to the price you will finally get. This explains the reason why shipping two cars of different sizes along the same route will cost differently.

The car condition:

Another factor to consider in giving price in auto transport quote is the vehicle’s condition. It refers to if the vehicle is working/running or not. That is if it is in a condition that is drivable. Non-functional vehicles have a price that is higher than the cost of functioning vehicle of the model and type. This is because auto transport companies have to get a separate winch to put them inside the truck. It becomes even more costly if the vehicle does not have a wheel. 

The preferred carrier type:

Majority of the auto transport service providers will give a standard auto shipping quotes on the open transport carrier which is popularly used in most industries in recent time. But it is obvious that not all vehicles will follow the open auto transport carrier. Such expensive vehicles like Lamborghini, Bentley, Ferrari etc. usually need an enclosed transport carrier services to be able to preserve their worth and importance. Aside this, the type of carrier chosen will also affect the cost and pick up time as it is not always easy to get an enclosed shipping truck that can handle the enclosed auto services.

The expected arrival time for the vehicle:

It is traditional for most auto shipping companies to offer an average pick-up time which is mostly between 1-10 days from the order date. But when customers need it shipped urgently, the request for expedited auto shipping services which definitely will become more expensive than the regular shipping. Alternatively, standby services can be used where low prices are paid with the intention that the vehicle can take any longer time to arrive.
