Most cars are picked up and shipped to urban destinations, so if you live in a rural area, you may need to make special arrangements to receive your car. Some things to keep in mind include:
- Prices for vehicle shipping are route-based, which means your quote will take into consideration not only the distance to travel, but also the conditions of the road, the weather and the difficulties to be found along the way. Car delivery to Midwestern States, for example, is usually more expensive than shipping to any other area of the continental US, because the distances are not only longer but open roads are more likely to be flooded, obstructed by accidents or closed for repairs without warning.
- Deliveries to rural areas are also more expensive because chances are your car will be the only one going there, so the cost of those extra miles cannot be split into several vehicles.
- There are also price differences depending on “how” rural your area is. Vehicle shipping to the outskirts to the city will be a lot cheaper than sending your vehicle to farmland in the middle of Iowa.
