What is the Best Way to Ship a Pickup Truck?

Pickup 5Pickup trucks have been around almost since the invention of the modern automobile. In olden days favored by farmers and other people working in agriculture, pickup trucks today are seen everywhere, driven by a lot of people – some who need the space for hauling, and others who just think pickup trucks look cool. Because of their high utility, pickup trucks come in a variety of different sizes in order to haul a variety of different things, and different sizes means different weights and dimensions and can make shipping a pickup truck a lot more difficult. Most cars today are the same basic size; whether it’s a subcompact or a full-size sedan, the size of a car doesn’t exceed a certain weight, or height, or length, or width. With a pickup truck, all those dimensions become a factor, and anything out of the ordinary can raise your price.

When it comes to shipping a pickup truck, the best way to ship it depends very much on what exactly it is you’re shipping. Some pickup trucks, particularly the smaller ones, can easily fit onto the back of a standard auto transport truck. Auto shippers that drive around those big ten-car haulers can only fit vehicles that are so big onto their trucks – if a vehicle is too large, and won’t fit, they can’t ship it, end of story. If a vehicle is too large for a standard carrier, it’ll have to be moved via a flatbed truck, which are a lot more expensive and a lot harder to find. Typically, pickup trucks that are built to be work trucks – i.e. not those that you can just walk into a Ford dealership and buy – are going to need a flatbed hauler, but those trucks that you can get off a dealership lot, more often than not, can fit on a standard carrier.

The best way to really ship a pickup truck is to talk to an auto transport representative directly about it. Make sure to have the dimensions of your pickup on hand, no matter the size of it – it’s better to have too much information on-hand, and not have to give it to your shipper, than needing it and not having it to give them at all. The more you can tell your rep about your pickup truck, the better able they will be to accurately quote your shipment and get you the right type of carrier for your needs.
