HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO SHIP A CAR?
WHAT ARE THE MAIN FACTORS BEHIND CAR SHIPPING COSTS?
Enclosed auto transport is the most secure way to move your vehicle from one location to another. The price of enclosed car shipping services depends on the vehicle’s size, weight, condition, distance, and the customer’s scheduling requirements.
Factors that affect the cost of enclosed auto transport:
Vehicle size and weight:
Larger and heavier vehicles cost more to transport because they occupy more space and weigh more.
If your vehicle doesn’t run, there will be an extra fee for loading and unloading it during shipping.
The total distance of the move also affects the cost significantly.
Stricter timing requirements, such as guaranteed pickup or delivery dates, will typically result in a higher quote.
Car transport companies’ equipment and services offered:
Intercity Lines is a carrier that only offers enclosed transport. This is the highest level of service available in the industry. Other auto shippers may use lesser equipment like open carriers and broker your car to 3rd parties.
Open car shipping is the riskiest way to ship a car because of the lack of protection. Brokers may offer open and enclosed transport, but you don’t know if they’re having a reputable company actually do the transport.
Their cost may be lower because of their lower quality of service and equipment. It’s important to understand the services the auto shipping companies are offering when you compare quotes for car shipping.
Intercity Line will transport and care for your car safely. We use top-notch equipment and treat your car as if it were our own.
CAR SHIPPING – FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
The experts at Intercity Lines answer some of the most common car shipping FAQs
Q: Can I put items in the car when shipping it
Yes, you can store personal items in the car during transport. However, we must have access to the driver’s seat and be able to see out the windows. Please keep the total weight of the items to less than 100 lbs. Typically, 100 lbs is roughly two large suitcases.
We prohibit illegal, hazardous, flammable, and dangerous items from being in the car during transport.
Since our insurance only covers your car, we cannot be responsible for lost or damaged items during transport. We also do not inventory items in the car or their conditions, so we cannot be accountable for them.
Q: What forms of payment does Intercity Lines accept?
A: Accepted payment methods are MasterCard, Visa, cashier’s check, and cash. We will run credit card payment when we arrange pick up, typically two to three days ahead. Our drivers can accept cash or cashier’s checks at pick-up or delivery.
We will only unload and deliver a vehicle once we receive full payment.
We do not accept personal checks or American Express
Q: How can I prepare my car for shipping?
A: To prepare your car for transport, please follow these steps:
Ensure your vehicle is mechanically sound:
Your vehicle should be mechanically sound before transport. Please check the fuel level, battery, brakes, and tires to ensure they are functional.
If your car does not run, there will be an additional fee.
We may decline to transport cars if they do not roll and brake.
Wash your car:
A clean car helps our drivers inspect and protect it properly with our cloth and plastic covers.
Remove any toll transponders from the vehicle.
A: These may go off even in our enclosed auto carrier, and you will be responsible for any fees incurred.
Q: How do you protect my vehicles during transport?
A: We train our drivers to handle high-value cars, from classics to modern supercars. They will inspect the car thoroughly before loading it, noting any scratches, dings, or dents on our inventory form.
They can safely load and handle all vehicles, using proper tie-down techniques and taking extra steps to protect your vehicle.
We use two car covers to ensure your vehicle has the utmost protection. Our car haulers will also use soft cotton gloves, floor mats, and seat covers to protect your vehicle further.
Our enclosed car trailers will protect your vehicle from weather, road debris, and hide it from public eyes.
