Factors to consider when shipping a car across country

When shipping a car long distance it is important to understand how it works.

The Cost

The cost to ship a vehicle is usually the most important part people care about. However, the cost is not a simple deduction from based on distance and vehicle type. The better you understand all elements of a car shipping cost, the easier it will be to choose the right service, company and price. Learn more in our cost to ship a car guide.

The Location

Shipping from and to major cities usually equals faster service. Rural areas are more difficult to schedule because less carriers are willing to go. This means the price will be higher if you want a timely service. When shipping across country this could mean more than two weeks for delivery, after pick-up.


Seasonality is driven by supply and demand peaks and drops. When supply is higher, prices drop, when demand is higher prices go up. In auto logistics, when demand is high the truck spots fill quickly, which means customers compete more and prices increase. That is why a price quote is good for one week only.

The Distance

The distance always has an effect on the price to ship a car. In general, longer distances cost more. However, shorter distances sometimes cost as much as a long distance trips. Things vary daily based on other factors as well. It really depends on the type of vehicle you want to ship, but also on the type of service and exact location.

Transport Type

When shipping across country we always recommend enclosed trailer. It is usually more expensive, but will protect your car fully. Open trailer is the standard in the industry and certainly just as safe. It all depends on the type of vehicle you are shipping. The type of carrier you choose will affect your cost and delivery time.

The company

The auto transport company you choose will make all the difference.
