What is Expedited Auto Transport?
Expedited, or express auto transport, is when a customer needs a car delivered as quickly as possible. This could mean at an exact date or by an exact date.
In the auto shipping industry, moving several vehicles at once is always the most efficient option, but not always the fastest. The less cars the carrier loads, the faster the service.
Shipping to and from a major city makes it easier to find a carrier to pick-up faster. A major metropolitan area means there will be more trucks available on your particular route. Our logistics experts will work with you to find the most convenient location and the best carrier to accommodate your time frame.
How much does it cost to ship a car expedited?
Several factors affect the final cost to ship a car in the auto transport industry. Shipping a vehicle expedited means some variables play even a greater role.
Express service costs more. You have to pay a premium for your vehicle to be prioritized.
How much you are willing to pay determines the pick-up and delivery frame. For a truck driver to change schedules, and divert from his route, to pick-up and deliver your vehicle first you need to pay extra.
Your choice between open and enclosed car shipping carrier matters.
Open carriers are faster to schedule. If you want an enclosed trailer, whether that is a single car trailer or multi-car trailer your price will be higher, especially if you need specific dates.
When a car has to be picked-up at an exact date, and / or delivered at or by an exact date, this often requires a single car carrier.
This type of carriers usually run shorter local distances, but for an expedited service, this is often what we dispatch. And this type of carrier costs more.
Supply and demand is often the final decisive factor.
Customers compete against each other for a spot on a carrier,. Higher paying vehicles get dispatched and shipped first. Thus, when you need an expedited service that additionally raises the price of shipping a vehicle.
Prepare Your Car For Shipping!
You need to prepare your vehicle for shipping. A major part is to wash it and check it with a mechanic. A good wash guarantees a proper inspection. This will allow the truck driver to inspect your vehicle and mark any preexisting damages on the inspection report. Making sure the car is in a working condition. If your car is running this changes the price and the type of service possible. Disclose all details to our logistics coordinators.
