All About Remote Auto Transport Locations

Remote Auto Transport Locations

A lot of the price that you pay to ship a car is based on the pickup and delivery locations. Some areas are easy to get to, and some are…well…not so easy. These remote auto transport locations can be a bear for carriers to make money on, so they don’t often ship to remote locations.

That doesn’t mean that they can’t, or won’t. It simply means that remote auto transport locations are a pain to get vehicle in and out of. We’re going to discuss factors that impact prices and carrier availability on these routes in this helpful blog post.

Remote auto transport locations – carrier availability

Most carriers want to stay along major routes that pass through major cities along major interstate highways. Popularity is key when it comes to shipping cars – the more popular the locations, the easier it is to find a carrier.

Carrier availability is important. And, on the whole, a carrier will go anywhere so long as the price is right. For remote auto transport services, though, availability is tied heavily to price. The better the price, the easier it is to find a carrier willing to go to a remote location.

But it’s not always the case. For some areas, especially places like rural Wyoming or North Dakota, there just aren’t many carriers nearby at all. Carrier availability may be tied heavily to price, but it’s not the only factor when it comes to availability for remote shipping services.

You should be at least willing to talk to your representative about alternative pickup and delivery locations if carrier availability is low. It may require you to drive a bit, but it could save a lot of time and money. For example, instead of shipping to Garrison, North Dakota, try shipping to or from Bismarck. It could attract more carriers at better rates.

Remote auto transport locations – pricing

Carrier availability is important, of course, as carriers physically ship your car. But pricing is perhaps even more important. If a company isn’t giving the carrier enough money to ship to or from a remote location, a carrier – even one in the area -won’t move it. They’ll just ignore it.

So pricing is a crucial part of your auto shipping experience and the services provided. We’ve discussed prices before – if a price is too low, it may not ship. If a price is too high, it may be too expensive, but it’ll move fast.

When it comes to remote auto transport locations, though, the higher the price, the faster it’ll move.

99% of the time, carriers will move a piece of freight if the price is high enough regardless of the route. Take a look at Bellingham, Washington. It’s only two hours north of Seattle, which is the biggest shipping hub in Washington State.

But Bellingham is easily a few hundred dollars more than shipping out of Seattle because Bellingham is in a remote area. It’s not a remote city – it’s only two hours north of Seattle! But for a carrier it may as well be in Canada. So pricing in and out of Bellingham is going to be higher because if it’s not a carrier won’t take it. They’ll stay in the Seattle area and not drive four hours of out of their way.

So when you’re searching for remote auto transport services, pay attention to the pricing. If a price is too low, your car won’t move. If a price is too high, well, your vehicle will move quickly. So it’s up to you in how you want to approach that. But you should definitely speak to an auto transport agent for more information.
