The process of shipping a car

Selecting a reliable car shipping company is important because you're entrusting them with your valuable asset. The process typically starts with a quote request from the customer, either through the company's website or over the phone. The customer provides details about their vehicle, such as make and model, pickup location, and destination. The car shipping company then provides a quote based on the information provided.

Types of car shipping methods

Once the customer accepts the quote, the car shipping company arranges for a carrier to pick up the vehicle. The carrier will either be an open or enclosed trailer, depending on the customer's preference. Open-air transport is the most common method used for shipping cars and is generally less expensive than enclosed transport. Enclosed transport provides additional protection for your vehicle and is ideal for high-end or classic cars.

Factors affecting car shipping costs

Several factors can affect car shipping costs, including the distance between the pickup and destination locations, the size and weight of the vehicle, the time of year, and the type of transport. The longer the distance, the more expensive the shipping cost will be. Larger and heavier vehicles will also cost more to ship. The time of year can also affect shipping costs, with peak seasons being more expensive. The type of transport, such as open or enclosed, will also affect the cost.
