Tips to Prepare Your Vehicle for Auto Transport

Most companies will look at where you are transporting your vehicle from and to and what you are shipping. These are the two most important factors of your auto transport quote, and prices. They can change drastically based on simply changing the cities a vehicle is shipping to.

Having exact zip codes, as well as the specific year, make, and model of the car you want to ship, can help make your quotes more accurate. However, simply knowing where you’re shipping from and to, as well as what you need shipped, isn’t enough to provide you with an accurate price. There are some very specific things that the best companies will do to make sure your auto transport quotes are the best they can be.

The most important thing is exceptions to prices on a per-region or per-city basis. Some areas are easier to get into and out of than others at certain times of the year. More difficult areas often will have “exceptions” to them.

Transporting into or out of some places, particularly rural ones, can cost $100 or more than a route between two big cities that has the same overall distance. The increase in price (the ‘exception’) is based on the fact that few carriers move into or out of rural areas, so the price is increased to provide more incentive for carriers to take the load.
