How much does it cost to ship a race car?

The cost to ship a race car mainly depends on the size of the vehicle and the type of transport. Such automobiles are often highly modified, which could means they are bigger and heavier. They are also often transported in a single car carrier, or in an enclosed carrier. Booking a single car carrier raises the price additionally. Enclosed vehicle shipping is more expensive due to three main reasons – protection, insurance and availability.

  1. Enclosed carriers offer complete protection from road and weather elements.
  2. Such carriers usually provide insurance coverage up to one or two million dollars.
  3. By availability we mean the total number of such trucks available in the US.

What type of auto transport service should I choose?

The services divide into two categories – choosing based on the type of carrier and then on the time frame. Both open and enclosed trailers work for any race automobile. Before deciding what is best, review the advantages of either service. Shipping time is always an estimate and thus a more delicate matter to be discussed.

Corsia customers have to first choose between the type of carrier, and the time-frame of delivery.

  1. By carrier type you need to choose from open or enclosed.
  2. By time-frame you need to choose standard or expedited service.
Open auto transport is the standard car shipping service and works for all types of automobiles, including race cars. An open carrier is readily available across the US, and hence less expensive. Most open carriers can fit up to ten cars, which makes it efficient and fast. The main disadvantage is that the car is exposed to road and weather elements.

Enclosed auto transport is a preferred option for sports, luxury and race automobiles. An enclosed carrier provides complete protection from all weather or road elements. This, however, makes it more expensive. This option can also be a bit slower because there are fewer enclosed carriers available in the country.

How does race car shipping work?

Corsia Logistics transports sports and race cars nationally and internationally, daily. Our team of logistics coordinators is knowledgeable and will recommend the best solution possible.

This is the car shipping process in five steps:

  1. Auto transport carrier truck comes to pick-up your vehicle.
  2. The carrier completes vehicle pre-load inspection report (BOL).
  3. The carrier loads the vehicle and straps it securely inside the trailer.
  4. The car is strapped and secured on the trailer and you sign your BOL.
  5. At delivery the carrier unloads safely and inspects the vehicle again.

When shipping a race car, it is important to verify the company’s insurance and license for your peace of mind. You can always request that from our logistics agent or just check with the FMCSA website.

Booking your auto transport service is easy

You can book your service online or call our team now. First, you decide on the type of transport, and the time frame for shipping. After that comes the vehicle pick-up time and the vehicle delivery moment. An important part you need to pay attention to is the vehicle condition report, or also called Bill of Lading. This is a document our carriers complete at pickup and at delivery. At delivery this report will be used to help determine that the vehicle is received in the same condition it was picked-up.
