Here are Some Tips to Help Get the Best Quotes and a Successful Transaction
Relocating to another city or state can be a trying experience. Packing up your belongings, getting quotes from movers, and working through the process of selling one home and buying another in a distant location is tough. One thing that can add to your to-do list is deciding how to best ship a vehicle if you are unable to drive it to your new city or state yourself.
When transporting a vehicle to another location, one of the first things that you will need to determine is how much it will cost. There are several criteria that will come into play here, including:
- The distance to your destination.
- The type and the size of the vehicle.
- The type of trailer you use (for instance, open or enclosed)
In the case of the miles between Point A and Point B, these costs can run you just a few hundred dollars if the trip is relatively short, to more than a thousand dollars if you’re going several hundred miles or more.
The size and the weight of your car can also be an important factor. In this instance, smaller vehicles will typically cost less than larger ones. A truck or an SUV can also usually cost a bit more than a regular passenger car.
With regard to the trailer you use, going with an enclosed option will generally cost you more than using the open version. One reason for this is because the open car transporters can usually carry several vehicles at one time. Overall, you can typically plan on an enclosed trailer costing a few hundred dollars extra, all other things being equal. But, if you have an upper end or classic vehicle, this could be well worth the money.
