How Much Will It Cost to Hire an Auto Transport Company?

CarsArrive | CarsArrive

Finding a safe and reliable way to move your car across the state, across the country, or across international lines is one of the most important parts of the relocation process. But it doesn't have to be a particularly difficult choice to make. When you work with a reputable auto transport company like CarsArrive Auto Relocation, you can rest assured that we'll be able to safely haul your car wherever it is you need to go, saving you time, hassle, and money.

There are a couple of factors in your move that might affect the quote or price you receive from our auto transport company. This includes:

  • Distance

Of course, one of the most important considerations is how far you need to ship a car. Covering the 1,084 miles between Houston and Chicago, for instance, might cost approximately $820. But for the 2,916 miles between New York to San Francisco, the cost might be more in the realm of $1,500. The location itself might also influence rates, depending on how easy or difficult it is to get there.

  • Season

The summer months are the peak times for moving and when the demand for car transportation is at its highest. Therefore, you can expect rates to be $200 to $300 higher during the summer months than the winter. No matter the time of year, it's a good idea to book your auto transport company well in advance to ensure availability.

  • Hauling Needs

Your quote will likely differ depending on whether you need minivan or motorcycle hauling. You may want a closed carrier to protect your vehicle from the elements while shipping, or you may want to store extra items in your car en route. Most companies will advise against keeping anything in the car while it's in transport, but some might allow 50 to 100 pounds of extra cargo, perhaps for an additional fee.

In the end, CarsArrive Auto Relocation has your best interests in mind when it comes to getting your car to your new home. Get the peace of mind that comes with reliable shipping service. Call us today for a quote on your car transportation.
