How To Estimate The Cost To Ship A Car

There are specific factors that come into play when considering shipping your car, whether nationally or internationally. First, you must consider how you plan to have your car picked up and delivered back to your door. Second, you need to know the type of car carrier for your auto transport such as by air, land or sea. Third, you’ll have to decide the level of care you wish to protect the car by choosing between such methods as RORO (roll on roll off) and Container shipping. LA 24-7 Forwarder wants to help you with your decisions one-on-one by discussing just how we choose the right car transporter, decide on the best shipping method, and giving you the best delivery option that meets your budget.

Choosing The Right Car Transporter

Car movers can seem like a dime a dozen. Choosing between car shipping companies is kind of like finding a needle in a haystack. If you know how to identify dependable auto shippers, you’ll likely get the price and speed of delivery you desire without damage or delay. Relying on third-party logistics providers can lighten the burden for you by simply outsourcing your auto transport needs.

When LA 24-7 Forwarder chooses a car transporter, they look for dependability, visibility and experience. The company must have a track record that speaks for itself. And, it must enable our clients to track the shipment over the Internet using GPS. Finally, they must demonstrate a positive relationship with its employees, clients and insurance providers. All these factors go into choosing who we allow to work for us.

Deciding On The Best Vehicle Shipping

There are car carriers, flatbeds, container ships, and rail services to choose from. The choice depends first on how far you are shipping your car. Auto transport is like moving to a new house, the longer the haul, the more you want to protect your assets. So, LA 24-7 Forwarder not only helps you decide which type of carrier you should use, but we guide you on whether your car is shipped individually or as part of a group. For example, if you are shipping overseas, you would use either a car carrier that does RORO (roll on roll off) or a container ship where your car is fully protected by its own container unit. The expenses associated with both are quite different, and that’s where we can help.

Working Within Your Budget

The cost to ship your car is based on the variables above, as well as how discreet and protective you are about your property. We have a global network of transport companies that work with us daily to provide the best in service and price to our customers. LA 24-7 Forwarder relies on these solid relationships to pass the savings on to you. So, once we’ve narrowed down the how and what of your auto transport, we pick one of our dependable auto shippers to start the process.
