Chevy Silverado 3500HD Regular Cab
Chevy Silverado 3500HD Regular Cab

Auto shipping for a Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD Regular Cab is no day in the park, but American Auto Shipping has you covered. The Chevy Silverado was first introduced as a trim level for the then-popular C/K pickup truck lineup, but was given its own entire model line after the C/K was dropped in 1997. Debuting in 1998, the Silverado has been a major seller for Chevy and is currently their most popular brand of pickup. Though it has changed over the years, the Silverado is still available in three models, the 1500, 2500 and 3500, and a fourth Hybrid model is being introduced. Each lineup is further broken down into various package configurations. On the 3500HD, there are three basic models: the Regular Cab, Crew Cab and Extended Cab, and each has further models, with the Regular Cab featuring the WT, LT, WT Dooley and LT Dooley models.

The WT features a 6.0L V8 Vortec engine, a six-speed automatic transmission, single rear-wheel application, a Z85 handling/trailering suspension system, 4,625-lbs standard payload, 18-inch painted steel wheels, cruise control, Z82 Heavy Duty trailering equipment and the G80 Automatic-locking rear differential system. In addition to or replacing WT features, the LT features an MP3-compatible CD player, SiriusXM Satellite Radio with three trial months, premium cloth seating, power windows, powered-and-programmable door locks, power-adjustable-and-heated outside mirrors, 18-inch polished forged aluminum wheels and OnStar with Directions and Connections Plan for the first six months. The WT Dooley features a Vortec 6.0L V8 engine, a six-speed automatic transmission, dual rear-wheel application, the Z85 Handling/trailering suspension system, 7,215-lb standard payload, 170inch painted steel wheels and cruise control. The LT Dooley, in addition to or replacing WT Dooley features, includes an MP3-compatible CD Player, SiriusXM Satellite Radio for three trial months, premium cloth seating, power windows, power-programmable door locks, power-adjustable and heated outside mirrors, chrome overlays on the wheels and OnStar with Directions and Connections plan for six months.

The 3500HD Regular Cab may not be as big as its older brothers, but it’s a behemoth nonetheless, especially the two Dooley models, which have the set of tires in the back of the truck. These are difficult trucks to ship due to their size and weight, and come with a hefty oversize vehicle fee, usually in the $300-$400 range. This is standard no matter which auto shipping company you pick. If you’re shipping a standard Regular Cab it should be able to fit on a standard truck; however, if it’s been lifted or modified in any way so as to make it bigger or heavier, you may end up needing a flat-bed auto transport truck as opposed to a standard carrier, which could cost even more money. It’s always best to talk to your auto shipping representative if you have concerns about the size or weight of your vehicle.
