How Much Does California Car Shipping Cost?

There are various factors that will have an affect the cost of auto transport in California. You have what is easiest to understand, like size, weight, along with distance.  But there are other factors. Like the current prices for gas, the condition of the car (such as inoperable), the need for door-to-door service, and expedited requests. But there are additional contributing factors that will influence the final price to ship your car in Florida.

Here they are in detail:

Distance and the Locations

As mentioned, the primary factor weighted in to determine the cost is the distance between the pickup and delivery locations. Naturally, longer distances incur higher costs. However, location when it comes to car shipping quotes matters too. If you're shipping to or from remote or hard-to-reach areas, expect higher costs due to the added time and fuel consumption for the driver to go out of their normal route.

Vehicle Type

The vehicle size and weight of your car will have an impact on your car shipping quote. For example oversized truck shipping will greatly increase the price due to the space and fuel needed. The price as larger, heavier vehicles occupy more space on the carrier and add to the fuel cost.

Condition

Similarly, if your vehicle is inoperable, it may require special equipment for loading and unloading, adding to the expense.

Transport Method

As mentioned earlier, there are two main methods used by the car shipping industry: open and enclosed transport. Open transport is the cheaper option, while enclosed transport, offering more protection, comes at a premium for the extra layer of protection. If you choose enclosed transport, these costs can be up to 60% higher. Bear in mind that these are rough estimates and actual costs can vary depending on the specific variables involved in your shipment.

Season

The time of year can affect the cost. For instance, shipping costs with just about any car transport company often increase in summer due to higher demand nationwide.

If you are a snowbird, the winter rate is high going south to warm states while cheaper going north to the cold ones. It then reverses in the spring.

Speed of Delivery Dates - Expedited Shipping method

If you need expedited shipping, it will likely increase the cost due to the special arrangements necessary by the car shipping company to make sure you have a faster pickup.

 

How Long Does it Take to Ship a Car to or from California?

On the average, shipping a car from/to California will usually take 1 or 2 days for distances ranging from 100 to 300 miles But if it's a cross country transport ranging 1500-2500 miles you can expect a timeframe of 8-10 days.
