How we determine the price?
There are many factors that affect the price to ship a car. It is easy to estimate a price based on the market prices, however many times these prices are not correctly calculated, or calculated far in advance; when actual time to ship comes along, the price quoted may change. One of the factors that affects the most is the weather. Some routes depend on the season to set their prices, some routes are not affected. Snowbird season, which occurs during winter usually has higher prices at this time of year than any other as the demand to ship to southern states is higher.
Other factors like gas and distance also affect greatly as gas prices are constantly changing and prices quoted have to cover for the driver's expense. A trip that is cross country will give you more gas consumption and mileage, therefore prices are higher, no matter how small your car is. Other factor that is taken in consideration is the model of the car. The size and weight of car takes a big toll on the carrier there for it is very important to provide as much details as possible regarding your car to the agent. Carriers can take up to 11 cars in a single shot, however these 11 cars plus the carrier itself must be under the weight limit regulated by the DOT (Department of Transportation). Also the size of the vehicles affects greatly as large vehicles such as pick up trucks or SUV use more room and less cars can be mounted. These cars need to make up for the lost space.
Another factor that is very important is the location. We try to offer door-to-door service as much as possible, however there locations that cannot be reached by an 18-wheel hauler. Narrow streets, gated communities or off route locations require extra hassle, which in return require a higher cost.
