The Chevrolet Express lineup has been around since 1996, replacing the aging Chevy Van lineup that had been a staple of the company for years. Finding a good auto transport company to ship this full-size van is usually pretty easy, but it depends on which specific model you’re shipping. In this article wea’ll discuss which cargo van models are currently available as well as what you can expect when it comes time to find a good auto transport company to move it. The Express 3500 is available in a wide variety of different options and models; this auto transport article will focus on the 3500 Cargo Van models. In the link above you will find information about the 1500, 2500 and 3500 cargo vans in full; this article merely glosses over some of the aspects of the vehicle’s models and options, so for more information visit the auto transport link above.
The Chevrolet Express 3500 Cargo Van comes in two models, the WT and the Diesel WT (which is featured in a separate article). The lineup is more of an upgrade over the 2500 Cargo Van, featuring many of the same basic designs and features, as opposed to its own true model, despite the fact it bears a different number. For instance, it features the same 4.8L E85 FuelFlex-capable V8 Vortec engine, as well as the same 16-inch steel wheels and six-speed automatic transmission. The only major difference is the fact that it sports 4,187-lb payload.
When it comes to actually shipping the 3500 Cargo Van, chances are you’ll be spending a bit more than you would for a regular vehicle. Usually anywhere from $300-$450 depending on the auto transport company. This is considered an overweight vehicle fee, or surcharge, and is standard among auto transport companies. Heavier vehicles cost more to haul in terms of fuel, which in turn costs more for auto transport companies to move them. Thus, surcharges on overweight/oversize vehicles. If your 3500 Cargo Van is sporting a lift kit or is modified significantly, it’s important to let your auto transport representative know immediately as you might require a specialized carrier to move it – the 3500 Cargo Van is not the easiest vehicle in the world for auto transport companies to move, so do them a favor and be as up-front about your vehicle as possible. This will also help to avoid complications further along in your shipment.
