Car Transport Shipping Options

In open hauling, auto transport is executed with an open flatbed trailer that holds multiple cars. This option is the most cost effective auto transportation solution and is appropriate for operational vehicles with a working battery, engine, and brakes. Keep in mind that because the flatbed is open to the elements, the car will be exposed to weather, dirt, and debris during the moving process.

Open Hauling Car Shipping

If you are looking into how to ship a car internationally there are many options available to you.  Depending on the destination some of those options may be limited.  Additionally some of the options are more budget friendly than others, so that is something else you will want to keep in mind when making your decision.  We will outline some options for International Car Shipping below.

Enclosed Hauling Vehicle Transport

During enclosed shipping, your car is shipped across the country in a vehicle is loaded into an enclosed trailer and hauled along the route. This option can be more expensive but is ideal for non-operational vehicles, collector cars, and other vehicle types that are not suited for open-air hauling.

Seasonal & Snowbird Auto Transport Service

In order to ensure that your vehicle is safe throughout the auto transport process, it’s crucial to prepare your car before it is picked up by the hauler. Luckily, the preparation is straightforward and can easily be completed within a short time. Once your auto transport service is booked, you can prepare your vehicle for shipping with this simple checklist: 

  1. Wash your car: This allows the hauler to thoroughly inspect the vehicle before transportation. 
  2. Check the Gas: Your car’s tank should be at least a quarter full, but no more than halfway full before transporting within the United States. There are special considerations for international shipments. 
  3. Remove or Lower Antennas: Unscrew and remove any antennas. 
  4. Include Keys: DOT regulations require the hauler to keep one set of keys for the vehicles at all time. 
  5. Disable Alarms: Turn off your car alarm before the vehicle is picked up. 
  6. Remove Accessories: Remove bike racks, bug shields, or hauling equipment before pickup. 
  7. Check Fluids: Add coolants, transmission fluid, antifreeze and other fluids as needed prior to pick up. Notify our office of any known fluid leaks your vehicle has.
  8. Remove Spoilers and Low-Hanging Items: Air dams, fairing, and spoilers should be removed prior to transport. 
  9. Remove Caps, Canopies, Tonneau Covers, and Shells 
  10. Remove Personal Items: Neither Reindeer Auto Relocation nor the carrier shall be responsible for anything loose inside the vehicle.

Auto Transport Cost - International and all 50 States!

A variety of factors determine the cost of your car transport service. The distance travelled, time of year, shipping method, and expedited transport can all influence the total costs for car shipping. When planning your auto transport service, we’ll discuss each of the below parameters to ensure that you are getting the best rates for your budget.

auto transport cost

Delivery Location & Distance Travelled: When calculating your auto transport costs, we will look at the cost per mile for the trip. Auto transport services for long distances generally will cost more than shorter trips. If you require the vehicle to be delivered to a commercial location, flatbed, or storage facility, it can also impact the cost of car shipping. In some cases, clients may require door-to-door service. Your quote can be drafted to include a local flatbed trailer to ensure that your vehicle is stored and delivered exactly when you need it.

International Delivery: International auto transport may also include fees for permits and taxes. Luckily, Reindeer Auto Transport works with a large network of car haulers and can provide options to meet a range of budgets. Our international moves include transport by air, land, and water. Learn more about our domestic and international shipping services and our services throughout Canada.

Timeline & Expedited Orders: We provide expedited services and Same Day Pick Up for clients that need fast auto transport. We also offer Guaranteed Transport Times for clients that require this service.

Vehicle Type & Size: Large vehicles that cannot be easily hauled onto a car transport trailer may be more expensive to transport. However, Reindeer Auto Transport works with a large network of haulers to provide cost effective and reliable shipping for large vehicles including buses, trucks, RVs, or trailers. We ship vehicles and freight of all sizes, including boats, scooters, storage pods, motorcycles, and collector vehicles. See our website for a full list of what we ship.

Operational vs. Non-Operational Vehicles: Vehicles that can be driven onto an open-air auto transport hauler can be shipped more easily than non-operational vehicles. A working battery, ignition, brakes, and operational doors allow the hauler to easily move your car while in transport. Reindeer Auto Transport also provides shipping for non-operational vehicles via enclosed shipping solutions.

Time of Year: Winter storms and heavy snow can delay or complicate shipping across any industry especially car shipping. Your car shipping quote coordinator can confirm if the time of year will affect the costs of your service. We give all clients access to track their auto transport status on our online Auto Locator tool.
