Car Shipping Quotes & Costs
A variety of factors determine the cost of car shipping quotes. Factors like the time of year, method of shipping, and your timeline can all influence the estimate. The distance of the move will also affect the totals on your car shipping quote. Get a detailed quote for car shipping rates online or by calling our team. Keep the below factors in mind:
Distance & Delivery Location:
Longer trips can be more costly than shorter transportation requests. The total distance of the shipment will be factored in when we create the cost per mile on your car shipping quote. A short 500-mile shipment will have a different mileage rate than a 2,000-mile trip. In addition, pick up and delivery at a residential location may have a different cost than at a commercial location. Reindeer Auto Transportation offers both domestic and international shipping services to meet our clients’ diverse needs. We also ship throughout Canada.
Timeline & Expedited Orders:
Reindeer Auto Transport offers expedited shipping and same day pickup for clients who need fast service. Your timeline needs for the shipment can impact the total car shipping quote, especially if expedited services are required. Learn more about Same Day Pick Up as well as our Guaranteed Transport Times.
Vehicle Type & Size:
Large vehicles like buses, trucks, RVs, or trailers may be more costly to ship than smaller vehicles that can easily be hauled onto a vehicle character. To make sure our car shipping quotes are competitive, we offer a range of shipping methods to meet your budget. 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:
If your vehicle can be driven onto an open-air car hauler, it may lower car shipping quotes. 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.
Door-to-Door Delivery Services:
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.
Open vs. Enclosed Car Shipping:
Your car shipping quote may include the option for open hauling or enclosed shipping. In open hauling, your vehicle may be loaded onto an open flatbed that holds multiple other cars. During enclosed shipping, your car will be loaded into an enclosed trailer and hauled along the route. Read more about the differences between open and enclosed vehicle transportation or speak to our team to determine what’s best for your car shipping needs.
International vs. Domestic Car Shipping:
Reindeer Auto Transport provides both domestic and international car transportation. This map shows the international destinations we serve. Our network of carriers offer transportation services by air, land, and water. Due to taxes, tariffs, permits, and distance, there may be additional costs on your international car shipping quote. Contact our team for more information.
Time of Year:
Winter storms and heavy snow can delay or complicate shipping across any industry. Your car shipping quote coordinator can confirm if the time of year will affect the costs of your service.

Preparing Your Car for Shipping
Once you’ve received a car shipping quote and booked a pickup date, it’s time to prepare your vehicle for shipping. Here is a simple checklist to get you started:
- Wash your car: This allows the hauler to conduct a thorough evaluation before transportation.
- Check the Gas: Your car’s tank should be at least ¼ full, but no more than ½ full before transporting within the United States. There are special considerations for international shipments.
- Remove or Lower Antennas: Unscrew and remove any antennas on the vehicle.
- Include Keys: DOT regulations require the hauler to keep one set of keys for the vehicles at all time.
- Disable Alarms: Turn off your car alarm before the vehicle pickup.
- Remove Accessories: Remove bike racks, bug shields, or hauling equipment before pickup.
- 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.
- Remove Spoilers and Low-Hanging Items: Air dams, fairing, and spoilers should be removed prior to transport.
- Remove Caps, Canopies, Tonneau Covers, and Shells
- Remove Personal Items: Neither Reindeer Auto Relocation nor the carrier shall be responsible for anything loose inside the vehicle.
