The Chevrolet Silverado has been around since 1998, when it officially replaced the C/K lineup that GM had been producing for years. The Silverado brought Chevy a significant boost in their pickup sales and it has been a household name ever since. Auto transport for a Chevy Silverado can be easy or difficult, depending on the size, and we’ll discuss all the finer points in a moment.

As the Silverado has many different models and options, this article will focus on the Silverado 2500HD Regular Cab.
The Silverado 2500HD Regular Cab comes available in two standard models, the WT and the LT. The WT features a Vortec 6.0L V8 engine with an available Duramax 6.6L Turbo-Diesel V8 engine, a six-speed automatic transmission, transfer case with a floor-mounted shifter, the Z85 handling and trailering suspension system, 17-inch steel wheels and 3,670 lbs of standard payload capacity. The LT, in addition to or replacing the features of the WT, features an electronic transfer case with a rotary dial, MP3-compatible CD player, Sirius XM Satellite Radio free for three trial months, premium cloth seating, powered and programmable door locks, power windows, power-adjustable and heated outside mirrors, 17-inch machined-aluminum wheels and OnStar with Directions & Connections for the first six months.
When it comes to securing auto transport for your 2500HD Regular Cab, be prepared to spend a bit of extra money. This Silverado model is large and heavy, which means it’ll cost more in fuel for any auto transport company. Therefore, to offset the rise in fuel expenses, carriers will impose an overweight or oversize vehicle fee, and it’s pretty standard fare. A good rule of thumb for the Silverado especially is to take its model (1500, 2500, 3500) and divide it by ten. That number will usually be right around the extra money you’ll need to pay. While every auto transport company is different, and each auto transporter prices in a different fashion, the overweight vehicle fees are imposed by the carriers themselves, and therefore are usually fairly standard. If you feel your auto transport quote is too high, perhaps it is – it’s always best to get more than one quote from as many different carriers as possible, to reduce your chances of getting swindled and by giving you valuable information regarding the price and the process.
