The type of car being transported will also dictate the cost. The vehicle specifications are required so that the truck driver can understand what amount of space will be required. Usually, larger vehicles will need more adjustment and more space so increased costs occur.

Type of Transportation

In most of cases, the clients will go for open car transportation because it is the easiest, standard and the cost-effective way (cheapest) when moving cars. If you prefer to go for extra protection from adverse weather conditions, you can request enclosed transportation which will cost more. Enclosed shipping will add a little percentage to the overall moving cost, but you get to have peace of mind and its worth it especially if you are planning to move luxurious cars or classics.

The Condition of the Vehicle
The Condition of the Vehicle

The condition of the car to be shipped also determines the moving cost. If the car is running, the client will get a better price for the given distance. If the vehicle must be carried or towed onto a flatbed prior to the move, because it has no wheels or it does not work at all, then this will require additional expenses. It is important to note that for a car to be deemed in good condition, it must have the ability to steer, roll and break.

Delivery and Pickup Locations
Delivery and Pickup Locations

There is no fixed cost when moving a vehicle from one place to the other. In case you are in areas with more trucks that are available for shipment, the moving price from this location may be cheaper. However, 1Transport strives to provide competitive pricing for clients even in small towns. In case you live far from the highway, you agree with the truck driver on a designated location from which you can meet to move the car and this can reduce the price. Not all trucks have access to all locations. Furthermore, customers can have the vehicle delivered door-to-door, which is costly. Deliveries that require the driver to leave the main interstates may have a higher cost than the quoted price because it will take longer.

Weather Condition

The cost of moving a vehicle during summer is cheaper compared to moving the car during the winter. During the "snowbird" seasons, most people move to warmer states and the moving cost during this period is higher. It is important to notice that severe weather or the holiday season will attract higher shipment cost.

Ground Clearance Cost

1Transport ensures that all vehicles are insured before shipment. The last thing that the driver wants is to be accused of are damage claims. Cars that have less ground clearance are more likely to be damaged during open transportation. While moving your vehicle from point A to B, it is a good rule of thumb that cars with less than 5 inches of the ground to be transported using enclosed transportation. Above 5 inches, the cars are safe to be shipped through open transit.
