How does Webster Hauling calculate auto transport quotes?
There are a few different factors that go into pricing your auto transport quote. Perhaps the most important factors are where you are shipping from and to, otherwise known as your pickup and delivery locations. Vehicles traveling shorter distances, in total miles, will typically cost less than those vehicles traveling to a further location. Cross-country transport is usually the most expensive, as you are traveling pretty much as far as a carrier will travel. Another major factor that goes into your overall auto transport price is what exactly you are shipping. Small coupes and sedans – regular cars – are considered standard vehicles, and so any vehicles that are larger or heavier than a standard car is considered “overweight” and costs more to transport. Some vehicles are too large to fit on a standard carrier and require flatbed car transport carriers, which can be more expensive. However, the number of vehicles that actually require a flatbed carrier is relatively low; over 90% of vehicles we ship are transported via open car transport carriers.
Why are auto transport quotes only good for two weeks?
Prices that carriers charge on their routes change every few weeks. This is due to several factors, but the primary one is the constant changes in fuel prices that carriers must pay in order to keep their vehicles running and their businesses operating. As fuel prices change, auto transport prices change, and this usually happens every two to three weeks. Another major factor that can radically alter your price quotes after a time is inclement weather; as seasons change and weather patterns come and go, some regions become easier or harder to move in or out of, and some places become more expensive to ship to or from as a result. We recommend that you start gathering quotes and booking your order about a week before you need your vehicle picked up, as it normally takes about that long to find a carrier and get your vehicle picked up.
