How to Make Your Auto Transportation Cheaper (Part Three)

Versa 1As we’re sure you’re aware, auto transport is an expensive process. It has to be, really, with how expensive diesel prices are, how big this country of ours is, and how efficient auto transportation trucks are when it comes to fuel consumption. Auto transporters price their loads as competitively as they can, but they still have to be able to satisfy all of their monetary requirements with the money they make off of transporting cars. This is the hard part about pricing a shipment, and one that a lot of customers have problems with. You’d be surprised at the amount of overhead that auto transportation companies have; between fuel, maintenance, food and lodging, not to mention the actual work that’s involved, auto shippers can easily expend $50-75,000 in a single year, if not more.

One way that you can save money – and also save money for auto transporters – is to ship multiple vehicles at once. Of course, it’ll cost more than shipping just one vehicle, but you’ll get a multi-car discount that will lessen the price per vehicle, as it were, and make it cheaper per vehicle to ship them. For example, if a single car on a route costs $500 to ship, two vehicles of the same basic size along that same route with the same carrier – would likely only cost $900, or $450 per vehicle. While it may not be cheaper for you to ship two vehicles as opposed to one, if you have a lot of vehicles (like a full load, for instance) it’s going to cost you substantially less than using multiple carriers to ship multiple vehicles. The reason for this is deadhead, or empty space on a truck. Carriers don’t like deadhead because it costs them money; they’d much rather fill that space up and make a bit of cash. By taking multiple loads for a single customer, not only are they reducing their chances of deadhead, but the trip is also easier; if they have ten cars coming from one place and going to another, a single one week trip could net them the same amount of money they’d make in a month, for instance. Obviously the numbers vary wildly depending on the carrier, the time of year, and so on, but you get the gist.

There are few ways to lower the cost of a single vehicle being transported; we’ve covered the two main ways here and here. After that, you can only manipulate the industry so much, so take what advice that you can when it comes to making your shipment cheaper. Sometimes, there is simply no way to make it cheaper without going into standby services, which few people actually want to do. If you’re concerned about the cost of transportation, get a quote a few months out. While prices will likely change within that time, it will give you a good idea as to how much it will be to transport your vehicle, and you can start budgeting and saving. We recommend doing this at least a few months out, depending on how quickly you can save your money, and of course you can always pay with a credit card, and then simply pay the balance off to the credit card agency later. Money is a tricky thing; if you have additional questions about auto transportation prices or the industry in general, give us a call at 800-930-7417 and speak to one of our agents; you can also fill out our free online quote request form and get an instant price immediately right on your screen.
