SUV Shipping and Transport

SUV's are versatile vehicles as they combine the power of a pick up truck with the style and comfort of a sedan. They have ample storage space like that of a van and some are even off road capable. SUV's appeal to many kinds of individuals because they come in so many different configurations. 

What Is SUV Shipping?

There's an SUV built for just about any reason you can imagine. Some are more focused on passenger capacity, seating up to 12, while others are geared to off roading and sport. Some hold as little as 5 passengers like most sedans do and are just slightly bigger.

For that reason,  SUV shipping is a specialized service that caters to finding accurate transport quotes for the myriad of sport utility vehicles on the market now.

Most SUV’s seat five people minimum, though there are some that are only two seats and some that have 12 or more. In other words, like pickup trucks, there’s an SUV built for just about every purpose. Thus, finding accurate transportation quotes can be difficult due to the sheer number of various sport utility vehicles out there on the road today.

SUV Shipping - How Much Does SUV Shipping Cost?

The cost of shipping your SUV will depend quite a bit on its specific model, as SUVs come in all shapes and sizes. Even models with the same name can differ in size. 

This variation can make it challenging for auto transport companies to provide an accurate quote for shipping your SUV if we don't have the full model name. 

So, it's very important not just to give us the year, make, and model of your SUV, but also the sub-model. For example, if you're shipping a Cadillac, Escalade, ESV. I1t's important to mention the "ESV" part, since it's the largest version of the Escalade, and mistaking it for a smaller model that is 16" shorter and lighter. This would lead to an incorrect quote.

Moreover, when obtaining quotes for SUV shipping, it's common to encounter additional charges for shipping oversized or overweight vehicles. This is because heavier vehicles consume more fuel and take more truck space, making them more expensive to transport over the same distance compared to lighter vehicles. Cars are typically charged a standard rate, whereas larger vehicles like SUVs incur additional fees for their extra weight. Carriers take these factors into account, and your quote will include everything: state fees and taxes, fuel surcharges, mileage, and weight fees.

Our rates for SUV's are the cheapest available and inclusive of all fees. Meaning there aren’t any undisclosed costs or surprises to worry about.
