What’s the Cheapest Way to Ship My Car?

In Tempus Logix, we think the greatest price determiner for auto transport is the company you hire to truck your car. The reason we say this is that some factors that affect price fluctuations are general and pertain to every company in auto transport across the platform regardless of companies own pricing for a shipment. If it is a busy time of year, then it is a busy time of year for everyone. The price shift from high to low will be relevant for all the companies. The same goes for other factorsgas price, traffic, weather, to name a few. Correspondingly, then we have some generic factors that inherently cause a significant change in the increase or decrease in the price of moving a car.

Let us do a quick review of these factors.

*It costs less per mile for long-distance transport than a shorter one. Coast to coast shipment can cost less than half a dollar a mile, and less than 300 miles can cost more than a dollar a mile.

All of these factors boil to one estimated and somewhat a standard price for all auto-shipment companies to bid and discretionally change it for their profit. Therein lies the rub. The real change in price happens at this point. That’s why it is indispensable to go with a company you can trust.
