Cheapest Way To Ship A Car

by Nicholas Dutko Car Shipping Carriers
In today's society people are always looking for the best deal. When looking for a car shipping service customers want to find the cheapest way to ship a car.  It is quite understandable. I am looking to explain a few things customers will need to do to find the cheapest way to ship a car.

Step 1: Using open vehicle transport services to have their vehicle shipped.  Open car shipping is the most common way to ship a car with over 95% of vehicles using this method.  This is the cheapest because of a few different reasons.  One of the reasons is because open car haulers can accommodate more vehicles per load.  Because these haulers can transport more vehicles the cost to ship a car is cheaper for everyone.  The second reason is because over 95% of car haulers on the road in the United States have an open hauler, so the supply and demand goes in favor of the customer so they can get the cheapest price.

Step 2: Transporting your car during the week and being flexible with your pick up and delivery dates.  Many people who do the load coordination and dispatching for auto haulers only work Monday - Friday.  Over 80% of vehicles are being picked up and delivered during the week.  This makes for the cheapest timing to ship.  Also, having flexibility is key for getting the cheapest price because if you can hold out a few extra days there is a chance that another hauler will be in the area and be able to do the job for cheaper than his/her competitor.

Step 3: Don't ship your car around any holidays.  Holidays are the absolute worst time to ship a car.  Just like the rest of the United States, car haulers also want to have time off with their family.  This normally happens around holidays.  Especially between Christmas and New Years.  Only 15% of the workforce in the auto transport industry is working between Christmas and New Years.  Around holidays there are less haulers on the road which makes for pricing to increase.  To get the cheapest price, steer clear of holidays.
