How much does open auto transport cost?

Corsia Logistics quotes current market prices that will ship a car on time.

  1. 1

    The rate that will ship a vehicle in a timely and professional manner we call the golden mean. In the auto transport industry it is very important to be able to accommodate the customer. But we have to accommodate the carrier as well. This means, pay the real current market price.

  2. 2

    In the US, almost all open car carriers are independent owner operators. This means a current market price is a decisive factor when it comes to timely shipping. A customer basically competes with other customers for a spot on the car carrier, and better paying vehicles always get picked up first. Therefore, it is very important for the broker to hit the golden mean- the right auto transport price. Here at Corsia Logistics we understand that very well and we explain it to our customers.

  3. 3

    Supply and demand fluctuations usually decide the auto transport cost. Certainly, there are other factors such as vehicle make and model, transport type (type of trailer, type of service etc.). Also, vehicle condition, location and distance as well as vehicle modifications. It is important to understand the real cost to ship a car when it comes to correct pricing and professional service.
