Auto Shipping Glossary: Accessory Charges

Dirty Car 1In the auto transport industry, you tend to pay for what you get, and if you aren’t sure how much everything is going to cost you’re going to want a crash course in shipping a car. Since we don’t offer that, the best way to get it would be to read as many of our blog entries – including this one – as you can. One thing you need to be aware of is something known as “accessory charges.” Paying accessory charges isn’t the same for everyone, as it depends on what exactly has to be paid for and who has to pay for it. Accessory charges are costs that have to be paid that are outside of your actual shipping cost. Accessory charges are often known as “accessorial charges” by logistics companies in other industries.

When it comes to shipping a vehicle accessory charges include things like fueling up the vehicle, charging dead batteries, repairing a flat tire or something else that is preventing the vehicle from being loaded. There are a lot of other things out there that are going to cost you money above the shipment of your vehicle, and they pretty much show up on a case-by-case basis; many times, customers aren’t going to need to repair a flat tire because, well, their vehicle doesn’t have a flat tire.

Accessory, or accessorial, charges are not things that people expect to have to pay when shipping a car. A lot of times they don’t – generally, auto transportation services are pretty cut and dry along most routes these days, which is really great for you since the stability leads to lower prices and faster pick up and delivery times in or out of most major cities. But at the same time, there’s only so much you can do to prevent those extra charges, like put air in your tires, make sure your vehicle only has a quarter tank of gas when it’s picked up, make sure that it’s rolling and braking and steering okay, things like that. The less work a carrier has to do to get a vehicle loaded and unloaded, the better.

Depending on what you’re shipping and where you’re shipping from and to, you should probably budget a bit over what you were told your shipment would be, in order to better prepare for any accessorial charges you may encounter. Keep your tires inflated, your vehicle clean, and your battery charged and ready to go. If you’re having problems with it, just make sure that it’s running when the carrier arrives, especially if you told them it is. If your vehicle cannot start or move under it’s own power, your carrier will likely be pretty miffed, and want compensation for having to load a non-running vehicle that was originally assumed to be running.

Sorry if we’ve made it seem like accessorial charges and the like are worse than they are – they aren’t, really, nor are they all that common. But it’s important to understand as much as you can about the vehicle shipping industry, and this includes terms that you aren’t familiar with, even if they don’t always apply to you.
