What You Need To Know About Car Shipping

There may come a time when you want to consider your options about car shipping. Questions like how much does it cost, how long does it take and what kind of choices are available.

First lets see some reasons people decide to ship their vehicles:

  • Avoid long distance driving

  • Mileage concerns

  • Military relocation

  • Out of state car purchases

  • Dealerships transferring cars

  • Auction purchases

  • Moving out of state

Costs for car shipping has many variables that determine the how much you will have to spend. The first major part of the cost is the distance that the carrier will have to travel.

The second factor for estimating the cost would be location. The more remote the location, such as 50 miles or more from a major city or long distance from the highway requires additional gas and time for a driver.

Another factor that effects the pricing is vehicle size. The bigger the vehicle the higher the price. The reason for this is the space that it would take on the auto carrier's truck. Perhaps the driver could get 2 small cars on his truck rather than one big one.

The majority of auto carriers are small private companies that use freight brokers. Metti International Vehicle Transport and Car Shipping posts on carrier boards that all carriers will see.
