How much will it cost to ship my car?

Pricing Factors

The cost of your car transport is calculated on various factors, and those can fluctuate based on time of year or market conditions. To the right are a few more factors that influence your price.

Size & Type of Vehicle

The size and type of your vehicle influences the car shipping price. Larger vehicles are heavier (trucks, vans) than a typical car, and as a result, can cost more.

Open vs Enclosed

Transporting your car on an open carrier is cheaper, because it is more widely available across our fleet.

Transport Distance

The further the vehicle has to go, the more expensive it will be. To save on distance, consider taking delivery in a nearby big city to save a few bucks.

Learn More About Auto Transport

In our industry, there are two types of companies: Carriers & Brokers.

Brokers vs. Carriers

When looking for car shipping, it’s best to stick to brokers, as they are the ones that will actually organize your shipment and handle all the money and paperwork. Not only that, but the brokers tend to keep the prices lower, and here’s why: in our industry, auto transport carriers basically set the prices. They are in control of how much the service ends up costing, and if they had their way, you would be paying thousands of dollars per car shipped.

Brokers Keep Your Costs Low

Brokerages, however, keep the prices low by being competitive with one another. Since most  carriers must take car transport loads from brokerages, they won’t price gouge customers because a customer can just go with a different broker. Finding good auto shippers starts with quotes; from there, you book your order with a broker and the broker will then find a good carrier to transport your vehicle.

What Can I Transport?

American Auto Shipping  focuses on shipping cars, trucks and SUVs, but we can move more than just those. Always check with us as we ship oversized vehicles such as vans, dually pickup trucks, box trucks, and even larger vehicles on flatbeds and lowboys. Make sure that you have the dimensions of any oversize vehicle available, as we will require the dimensions before giving you a quote. Usually the length, height, width and weight of the vehicle moved are required for your auto transport.

What Is A Carrier?

Some auto shippers are known as carriers. These companies are the companies that actually move the vehicle on their own trucks. Other auto transporting companies are known as brokerages, and they are the ones that will be arranging the vehicle transport between you and the carrier. When you fill out our free instant online car transport quote request form, you will receive an estimate of how much it will be to ship your vehicle on one of our carriers. All our carriers are fully insured for $750,000. Carriers are required by federal law to carry $750,000 worth of insurance on their truck to cover any and all damages that are caused by the driver or theft during car transport.

Go National Instead of Local

Searching for a nationwide transportation company will always yield better and more positive results. It may be tempting to do a search for “car transport services near me” but the reality is that the best transportation companies work nationwide and almost always will be based somewhere other than where you are.
