Can I Lower my Car Transport Costs?

Car Transport CostsShipping 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.
