Pickup Truck Shipping

Pickup trucks have been around almost since the invention of the automobile, and have been used in many different ways for many different reasons, but one thing always remains the same: a pickup truck has to have a bed and it needs to be able to tow or haul things. These are what pickup trucks do, and because of this there are a lot of different pickup trucks out there, all varying in size and weight and power, and among all those pickup trucks a good handful are going to need to be shipped on a daily basis. In this article we’ll break down some of the factors that can affect your auto transport prices and carrier availability and give you tips for getting the best pickup truck transport services you can find. As we mentioned, pickup trucks come in all sorts of different shapes and sizes, which can wreak havoc on auto transport representatives trying to give you an accurate price quote because your F-150 might be the larger one instead of the more modern, smaller one. Most pickup trucks come with oversize or overweight vehicle shipping fees that carriers will assess for larger vehicles – it’s something that no one can control because hauling vehicles larger than a standard car can be costly and expensive in the fuel department, so they charge more for larger vehicles to help offset the additional fuel they spend. Small pickup trucks, like the older Ford Rangers, will have little no to oversize vehicle transport fees because it is one of the smallest trucks on the market. An F-350, on the other hand, could run as much as $350 more than a standard car on the same route because of how heavy and tall it is. Some pickup trucks are so large that they cannot even fit on the back of a standard auto transport carrier. These trucks are usually the largest of a pickup truck line, or else they are pickups that have been modified in some way to be taller, heavier, longer or wider. If your vehicle cannot fit on the back of a standard open auto transport carrier, it will most likely need to be transported via a flatbed transport truck, which are harder to find and more expensive than open or enclosed trailers. They are built and designed to haul large vehicles and equipment, and if your truck is deemed too large to fit on a standard carrier your representative will more than likely have no other choice but to find a flatbed shipper for you.

Choose a Carrier

We take the time to educate you. After you understand how the process works with our professional consultation, you will be empowered to name your own price for a driver to bid on your vehicle.

Place Your Bid

Once you choose a driver, we complete all necessary paperwork for interstate transit and provide you with all your driver’s insurance paperwork and contact information.

Process

This is how we do it

WE POST YOUR VEHICLE & ROUTE

First, we post your vehicle to The National Dispatch Board where over 5,000 drivers go to find vehicles are available.
Drivers choose based on:
1. Their existing route
2. Amount of your bid
3. Reputation of the broker

YOU ACCEPT CARRIER'S OFFER

If your vehicle isn’t getting bids, remember, the vehicle with the highest priced carrier pay on the board gets priority, leaving the vehicle with lower rates behind. When you accept an offer, we send you a contract that the carrier has signed that guarantees door-to-door service, 100% bumper to bumper insurance, and a firm price, so that there are no surprises at delivery.

DEPOSIT DUE

Once we locate a carrier we will reserve a spot on his trailer after you approve final logistics. Every quote includes a broker and carrier fee. Most broker fees are a fixed rate and vary according to each company. Only after we have located a carrier and you approve their bid do we collect our broker’s fee. Nothing gets done without your approval.

LOGISTICS

Your driver will give you a window when they will be able to pick up your vehicle. Once your vehicle reaches its destination, inspect the vehicle closely before you sign off on receipt.
