What Is Behind Car Shipping Rates
Car shipping rates are difficult to understand unless you work in the industry. But are they really? In fact all the components that go into auto transport quotes surprisingly make sense. Let me explain, the same trip to be planned in February or in June would have largely differing quotes. It makes sense when you think about how many people do not care to relocate in the winter when weather conditions make it more difficult and the kids are still in school. The average person shipping a car may not think about that.
So here are some things to think about when considering car shipping rates:
- Make, Model, Year and Condition
- Vehicle weight & size
- Distance to be Shipped
- Origin and destination (accessibility to pick up and drop off areas, areas are located along a center route)
- National or International (duties, taxes and red tape)
- Time (Seasonal, Transit Time, Instructions to Store)
- Shipping method (Door to Door, Terminal to Terminal, Open or Closed Carrier and/or Special Handling Instructions)
- Operational Vehicle or In-Operational
- Storage of Personal Possessions in the Car
