Cheapest Way to Ship a Car
The Most Affordable Way to Ship a Car: An Overview
What is the most affordable way to ship a car? Well, since every client has a unique set of needs for their shipment, each quote at Global Auto Transportation is determined individually.
To determine the cost of your shipping services at GAT, we have to consider multiple variables. These include the following:
The type of vehicle that you need transported
To determine the price of shipping, it will depend on the type of vehicle that you need shipped (motorcycle, truck, van, boat, etc.). We will need to know the condition that your vehicle is in. For example, if your vehicle is not running, it may be more difficult to load.
Therefore, this can add to the price of your shipping services. We’ll also need to know the year, make, and model of your vehicle. Cars that are more expensive, such as luxury, exotic, or sports cars, will generally cost more to ship than others.
The type of trailer or transport needed to ship your vehicle
At GAT, we use multiple types of trailers and transport methods to ship vehicles. The type that you use will change the cost of your shipment. For example, in terms of luxury and exotic vehicles, our Enclosed Car Transport method is the best choice. While it is not our cheapest option, it is the safest. With this delivery type, your car has added protection.
The enclosed trailer prevents any exposure to weather, road dust, or other elements that may cause damage to your car during the shipment. We know how important, and valuable your luxury car is to you. Therefore, we recommend this type of transport to make extra sure that your car is safe and protected!
However, in general, our cheapest transportation type is Open Auto Transport. With this type of transport, your vehicle will be shipped on an open trailer. This is the most commonly used method for our clients, since it is the most affordable and also reliable. While this type of transport is a bit less expensive than Enclosed Auto Transport, it is still very safe and reliable. And, GAT can ship almost any vehicle with this method of transport!
In fact, with our tools, licenses, and equipment, GAT can ship almost any vehicle imaginable! Simply talk to our agents about what type of vehicle you need transported, and they’ll find the best transport method for you. Then, once we figure out what method of transport you need for your shipment, our team will arrange your shipping services to be the most convenient as possible for you.
The location of pickup and the location of the desired destination
The distance of the shipment is another important factor when it comes to calculating the cost. It is cheaper to transport cars shorter distances. For example, shipping a car from Los Angeles, CA to Dallas, TX will be cheaper than shipping a car from Los Angeles, CA to Boston, MA. To determine the price of the shipment, we’ll need to know the locations of the pickup and the destination as accurately as possible. This is why we always ask for zip codes from you when available.
And, since GAT is a national carrier, we have trailers all across the country. To arrange your shipping services, we will contact drivers that are closest to your pickup location and traveling along a similar route to the one you requested. This way, we can provide the most efficient service for you. In doing so, we offer all of our clients door-to-door shipping.
Door-to-Door Auto Shipping
Our door-to-door shipping methods are offered to each of our clients. Since this method is so widely used by auto shipping companies nowadays, it is an affordable way to ship your car. In fact, we offer all of our clients door-to-door shipping services for almost every vehicle we transport. And, for these services, we always aim to provide the best prices for the best services. However, our prices vary from shipment to shipment because the rates are adjusted based on the location and type of transport you need. This means that you’ll always get a quote that is individual to you and your needs!
With door-to-door auto transport, our team at GAT will do everything we can to pick up your vehicle as close to your door as possible and drop it off as close to the door of your requested destination. This makes the process extremely easy for you!
However, if there are any issues due to narrow streets or unsafe conditions, we will discuss and agree upon a different meeting location with you to pick up or drop off your car. But, these locations are always chosen as close to the location as possible. Safety and convenience are always our top priority!
If you need to get your vehicle picked up faster, we offer Expedited Shipping Services for you. While there is an additional fee included in this service, it will make the process quicker for you.
