What You Need To Know About Car Shipping

There may come a time when you want to consider your options for car shipping. During this process, questions may arise such as how much does it cost, how long does it take and what kind of choices are available.

First, let's take a look at some of the 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, the more fuel needed and time spent by a driver.

Another factor that effects the pricing is vehicle size. The bigger the vehicle, the higher the price. The reason for this cost increase with a bigger vehicle is the space that it takes up. In some circumstances, a driver might be able to fit two small cars in the same spot one big car fits.
