Transportation time and price are crucial criteria for clients to make the best decision. Providing proper information in order for the clients to decide the best option for them is our priority. The most common and cheap method for shipping your car is booking a spot on a car transporter. You can choose an enclosed carrier too, it offers more security and protection than an open carrier, but it is more expensive. If you are curious about more specifics on how much it costs to ship a car and how long it takes, then you are in the right place.
What affects car shipping price and delivery time?
First is price per mile. It depends on total mileage. The cost per mile for short journeys less than 200 miles will cost nearly twice more than for true long-distance shipping when it is more than 1,500 miles.
Other parameters which can affect price are:
- Size of the car
- Type of the car
- Terminal or drop off location
- Type of the carrier
Shipping a car across the US with a transport service sometimes takes weeks. If time is crucial for you and you need to deliver your vehicle in a short time frame then it will affect price too.

One of the biggest price-affecting factors is the size of the vehicle you’re shipping. If your vehicle is larger than another it will take more space on a transporter, which will lessen available space for other cars. At the same time larger vehicles weigh more, that is directly affect the total weight of loaded transporters and limit the carrier’s total capacity. Take into account all parameters that we mentioned which affect vehicle shipping price and shipping time when you order services from a shipping company.
