Auto Transport Quotes: Ford Flex
The Ford Flex is a sport utility crossover vehicle designed and introduced by the Ford Motor Company in 2008. It was originally unveiled at the 2005 Auto Show Circuit as the concept for the new Ford Fairlane, a moniker that has existed since the 1960’s. The Fairlane was turned into a “people mover” type of vehicle, though the original Fairlanes of the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s were considered mid-size and full-size cars as opposed to large station wagons or crossovers.

Heavier vehicles lead to worse fuel economy for auto transport trucks, which means more time at the pump and less time driving – and driving is, ultimately, how they get paid.
When you’re looking to ship a Ford Flex, make sure to include which submodel it is after you book your order. Any quotes you get will likely just need the “Flex” moniker to get you an accurate quote, but once you get down to the nitty gritty of your shipment your shipping company will likely need not just the type of vehicle, but the VIN number, the color and the submodel of it, to ensure that they’re picking up the right vehicle – particularly if it’s coming from a car lot or a dealership.
