Clarksville TN 2 225x300 Auto Shipping to Clarksville, TennesseeClarksville is a city in as well as the county seat of Montgomery County, Tennessee. Home to over 132,900 residents, it’s the fifth-largest city in Tennessee by population. This makes finding auto shipping to Clarksville a lot easier, as car transporters like routes through bigger cities. It is also the anchor of its own metropolitan area, which is even better for you. Metro areas are usually cheaper to ship from and to, as there are more potential customers for carriers. This means they can keep their trucks full more easily, which results in lower overhead costs for them and lower prices for you.

Is auto shipping to Clarksville popular?

It’s not the most popular place in Tennessee to ship a vehicle to or from, no. However, it’s also not all that difficult to get to or from for a carrier. A lot of carriers pass through Clarksville on their way into or out of Nashville, which sits 20-30 miles southeast of the city. This puts it practically next door to Nashville for most carriers, so prices tend to be about the same for both cities. This results in better, faster auto shipping to Clarksville, and also from the city. Not only that, but it sits right on the northern border of Tennessee, abutting Fort Campbell, Kentucky. This is great as it’s only an hour or two from Louisville, one of the largest cities in Kentucky.

And holding it all together is the Interstate Highway System. Clarksville sits right along I-24, which to be fair isn’t the most heavily-traveled interstate in the region. However, it’s a crucial connection for Clarksville. It runs out of Nashville and north through the city before heading into Kentucky. There, it runs northwest through Paducah before terminating at I-57, which does see a lot more vehicle shipping traffic. This gives carriers access to a number of high-profile cities in the region, which helps them reduce their costs and as such their prices.

Dollar Sign 3 300x300 Can I Lower my Car Transport Costs?Shipping a car can get expensive, and many people try to lower their car transport costs to help offset that. It’s not surprising and is fairly common, but there’s only so much you can do, to be honest. Lowering car transport costs requires you to be flexible in pickup and transit times as well as how your vehicle is shipped. While there are ways you can keep your shipping prices low, it’s not as simple as some might think it is. Let’s explore some reasons as to why car transportation can be expensive and also some tips for keeping your costs lower.

Some reasons why shipping a car is expensive

To start, vehicles are shipped by open ten-car haulers. These are big trucks that cost a lot to keep fueled and maintained. Fuel  is one of the largest costs in the industry and a carrier’s main expense. Simply covering fuel costs alone is a challenge, let along everything else like maintenance and living expenses. You also have to factor in all the miles that they put on their trucks. Drive time is extensive for car transporters, and while this does help keep shipping times lower it also puts a lot of strain on their engines. Maintaining them, for some, can be a fully time job.

But how does this help me lower my car transport costs?

Well, if you can help your carrier not have to go out of their or spend more than they have to, you can usually save a bit of cash. The most common way to lower your prices is to move your pickup or delivery location. Most shipments nowadays are door to door. However, not all carriers can actually reach every customer. A carrier can usually save some time and energy if you meet them close to an interstate highway, though. You still get the security of meeting your driver but you help them not have to drive as far.

You can also ship standby, or via terminal shipping services, but those are much less reliable. Standby shipping services force you to wait for a carrier as opposed to offering incentives. Terminal shipping has become more popular in recent years, but it still lags behind door to door in terms of overall popularity. However, it is often cheaper than standard shipping services, though it is not available everywhere.

Carrier 14 300x168 How to Spot a Bad Vehicle  Shipping CarrierFinding a quality vehicle shipping carrier is a lot easier now than it used to be. The internet has done an incredible job in that regard – customers are finding their shipping companies online, which has had a profound impact on the industry. Notably, though, it’s made it more reliable and a lot safer than it used to be. Companies now have to answer to internet reviews and they have to be prepared for public backlash. Bad press has ruined companies thanks to the internet now being everyone’s tool to keep service providers honest. And this is a big reason why most every vehicle shipping carrier you can find now is reputable and reliable.

But there’s still a chance I find a bad vehicle shipping carrier?

When you use reputable, reliable and established car shipping companies to move your vehicle, chances are no, you won’t find a bad carrier. The reason why is because the way the industry works now is that customer satisfaction trumps most everything else. Today, doing right by the  customer equals success, and everyone is jumping on board. This means that quote providers are only willing to work with top brokers. And those brokers are only willing to give freight to top car transporters.

Still, though, if you strike out on your own you’re at greater risk of finding a bad auto shipping carrier. Which is why you need to know what to look out for. To start, make sure you look for reviews if you can find them. Transport Reviews is the way to go in that regard, usually. Most carriers and brokers are listed on Transport Reviews and their algorithms make sure that all posted reviews are from real people.

Is that it? Just use reviews?

There are some other ways, but reviews should be your first stop when reviewing whether or not an vehicle shipping carrier is reliable. Carriers are a bit tougher to vet mostly because they’re not as visible as brokers. This is why working with a broker is going to save you a lot of time and energy on your shipment. They already know who the worst offenders on the road are and they’re pretty keen to avoid them. Brokers maintain lists of positive and negative shippers too. While bad experiences still happen, they’re much more rare if you book with a broker.

And if you’re interested in shipping a vehicle with a reputable, reliable vehicle shipping carrier, don’t hesitate to fill out our free quote request form. If you do, you’ll get multiple free quotes emailed to you from top car shippers. Those are brokers, and they work hard to make your shipment a positive one. We clear all of them for dependability, making sure they’re fully licensed and bonded and that they only work with top carriers. if you have any questions or concerns, you can also contact us any time, toll-free, at 800-930-7417.

Nampa 1 Household Moving to Nampa, IdahoNampa is a city located in Canyon County, in the U.S. state of Idaho. It is home to a population of over 81,500 residents, and is the largest city in its county. This actually makes finding household moving to Nampa a bit easier, which is always good. Household movers like to run routes into and out of bigger cities just like car shippers. Right now, data would indicate that moving to Nampa should be easy to do and a shipper should be easy to find. Between 2000 and 2010, the city’s population increased by 57%, and between 1990 and 2000 it increased by over 82%.

But what does this mean for my household moving to Nampa prices and services?

Well, the fact that Nampa is growing like a weed suggests that it’s a popular location for people to move to despite being in Idaho. Now, this is a big factor in terms of popularity – unlike car transporters, household movers have to get to the city they need to. While a car shipper can ask a customer to meet them along an interstate highway on the outskirts of town, movers can’t do that. So if there’s an area with a lot of demand from customers, they’re going to work it into their schedules. And, if the area is popular enough, chances are it’s going to cost less in the long run.

So moving to Nampa should be easy?

Well, it’s not going to be a cakewalk by any means. If you’ve ever moved before you know how stressful it can be, and a moving company may help ease those stresses, but they also add new ones too. You’ll need to be able to pay for the shipment pretty much right away. Moving companies take payments differently than auto transporters, and we recommend reading more about it in our household moving articles section. You can find a link to that below. It may also take longer for a moving company to actually get to you in the first place. Idaho is not a great place to move freight into or out of due to its isolation, after all. Talk to an agent to learn more, but rest easy knowing it won’t be impossible.

Alright, how do I get quotes for household moving to Nampa?

If you need free quotes to ship your stuff to or from Nampa, don’t hesitate to visit our household moving articles page.

Reading PA 2 Auto Transport to Reading, PennsylvaniaReading is a city located in Berks County, in the U.S. state of Pennsylvania. It is also the county seat, and home to over 87,800 residents, making it the fifth-largest in the state. Auto transport to Reading, therefore, tends to be somewhat easy to find. Of course, considering it’s just a fraction of the size of Philadelphia, it won’t be as popular as the state’s larger cities. But it’s still somewhat attractive for car transporters considering its size. It also anchors its own metro area, which helps even more.

So auto transport to Reading isn’t all that popular?

Well, it doesn’t see as much traffic as the largest cities in the state. But it does see enough to not only put it on the map but also keep it on the map. Car transporters want to run routes into and out of big cities because it’s where their customers are. And Reading may not be big, but it does sit close to Philadelphia. This is even more important – carriers want to run routes to big cities, yes, but if smaller towns and cities sit close by it’s even better. They can easily get to Reading before or after stopping in Philadelphia, and this helps keep both their costs and your prices lower.

It’s a shame that reading doesn’t sit along any interstate highways, considering how useful those are when it comes to shipping cars. But that’s okay – it sits along several state highways, and those connect to major interstates nearby. Notably they connect to I-76, which connects Philadelphia to Pittsburgh, in the west. This is fantastic when searching for auto transport to Reading, as carriers can run along I-76, make a detour in Reading, and continue on without having to spend a lot of time or money off their route. This reduces transit times and helps keep your prices lower.
