Every day at AA Car Transport get calls from customers asking HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO SHIP A CAR? Some customers like to get estimates or ballpark prices to see whether they would like to use car transport, drive a company car, or sell it and buy a new one.
There is no easy answer, but we will try to make clear some of the factors that can affect the final price. All prices are for open trailer in US & Canada (not including Hawaii). This post will help you understand the way you need to use a broker to ship your car.
Let’s start from the basic math.
The basic cost to ship a car in an open trailer is mileage multiplied by the size of the vehicle + broker fee.
So basically in a perfect world we have to open a map to calculate the distance between point A and point B, multiply according to the vehicle size and we have the cost. But this isn’t always the case.
Here are some of the factors that can change the price:
So as you can see there is no exact answer to “how much does it cost to ship a car?” Same car, same place, different season can mean a different price.
So now let’s play with some numbers:
Small sedan coast to coast LA-NY will be around the $1000-$1100 in summer time.
New York, NY to Los Angeles, CA is about 2800 miles – 2800*40+100=1220$ (miles*cents+broker fee) However, since it’s a well traveled route the price will drop down to $1000-$1100
Barre VT to Casper WY will be around the $1900-$2100 in the winter time. 2000*40+100=$900
Its’ only 2000 miles (800 miles less than LA-NY) but in the off season and with both cites off any main route, the price goes up to get the $2100 tag price.
As you can see in this post there may be a lot of factors you need to be consider to get a price. If you would like to know how much does it cost to ship a car please fill out our get a quote form; we will be happy to help you out with your vehicle transport needs.
