Why Does Transport for Larger Vehicles Cost More?

Ford F-150 1In the auto transportation industry, larger vehicles cost more than smaller vehicles to transport along the same route. This is pretty much standard; sport utility vehicles, cargo and minivans, pickup trucks – they all have one thing in common in that they’re larger than a regular vehicle. Their size and weight being more than a standard automobile, they’re going to be more of a pain for an auto transport company to load, unload and physically transport. You have to keep in mind that vehicles that weight more put more drag on the auto transport trucks they’re being shipped on, and those trucks aren’t exactly aerodynamic to begin with, and the more weight that’s on an auto transport truck, the less fuel-efficiency they get, which means they use up more fuel to travel along the same routes as they use when shipping a normally-weighted vehicle. With diesel prices as high as they are, it’s a wonder they don’t charge more for shipping heavier vehicles.

But that’s not the only reason why auto transporters charge more to ship larger vehicles (though it’s probably the main reason). Another reason is that they’re harder to load and unload, particularly taller-than-average vehicles like lifted pickup trucks or Sprinter vans. These can also pose challenges to auto transportation companies, as many areas have overpasses that are just taller than the required minimum. This can lead to complications for auto shippers trying to get into and out of certain areas, which is why they either charge more for taller vehicles or simply not transport them at all. Tall vehicles pose more problems than vehicles of a standard height, and you need to take that into account as well. If your vehicle is lifted higher than it normally is, you need to tell your auto transport representative before you get any quotes from them, because it will likely change the price. Lying about the height of your vehicle will only cause problems down the line and won’t save you any money once the carrier arrives to pick it up – it may end up costing you more in cancellation fees, and it’s a waste of everyone’s time.

If you’re shipping something ridiculously tall, like a piece of construction or farming equipment, a flatbed transporter may be required. Most standard pickup trucks and minivans – even lifted ones – require just a standard open auto transport carrier, but some of them are simply too big for a regular shipper to handle. Flatbed transportation is the most expensive form of auto transport, namely because it’s incredibly specialized and isn’t really something that is available upon request. Flatbed shippers can take weeks to find, too, so if your vehicle is in need of a flatbed transport truck, be prepared to spend a bit more and wait a bit longer. This is something no auto transportation company can really avoid, so take that for it’s worth.
