Alabama to Illinois Auto Transport Rates

There are some decisions you will make that will help to determine the cost of your Alabama to Illinois auto transport. Opting for open rather than enclosed transport can save you a lot of money. Car depots and freight terminals can be used as drop-off and pick-up locations instead of door-to-door and this can save money on your car shipping rate. Some other considerations that will determine your rate are the body type, such as sub-compact car, sports car, crossover, king cab pickup, crew cab truck, minivan, off-road vehicle, full-size pickup, compact car, and pickup truck, size, and weight of your vehicle. Non-standard additions to your vehicle that increase its length, width, or height may affect your rate, it is useful to know the actual dimensions of your vehicle to get accurate quotes. Following are some accessories that may change your quoted shipping rate.

  • Oversized antennas
  • Trailer hitch
  • Running lights
  • Oversized tires
  • Camper trailers
  • 4 wheel drive
  • Extended side mirrors
  • Side steps
  • Rear bumper guards
  • Grill guards
  • Running boards
  • Nerf bars

If your vehicle is inoperable and you do not inform the shipper prior to the pick-up time the driver will likely refuse to take your vehicle. Vehicles that are not operable can be transported but they greatly increase the time and labor required for the driver to load and unload them which increases rates. Shipping rates fluctuate as fuel prices increase or decrease. Rates also fluctuate seasonally, summer is the high season in the car shipping business so the highest rates for delivery occur in July and August. You might be able to get a discount for paying COD, most driver’s prefer COD payments, but carriers also typically accept debit and credit cards, however, if you intend to pay by check you should make arrangements with your auto shipping company beforehand for approval.

Shipping Process

Planning ahead can make your auto transport process much easier. We can get you 10 Alabama to Illinois auto shipping quotes from our database of reliable carriers and drivers. After reviewing your quotes, it is helpful to call the shippers and compare the services being offered. After you have decided which shipping company to hire be sure to carefully read all their guidelines and information.

By ensuring your vehicle is in good condition you are helping to prevent shipping delays. Have your oil and fluids checked and filled as needed and make sure your tires are inflated to the proper pressure level. If there are possible cold or winter conditions along your vehicles shipping route, make sure you check or have your antifreeze level checked. Vehicles that become disabled can impact schedules and also be charged higher rates. One of the Department of Transportation’s guidelines is the requirement that you keep a spare set of keys for your vehicle and keep them in your possession.

You cannot use your vehicle as a container for shipping personal belongings, weight is a major factor in your cost and any personal belongings will not be covered by the shipper’s insurance. As an extra precaution, you should remove any non-retractable antennas and also any other non-standard accessories that stick out from your vehicle. You can save time by presenting a washed vehicle with a clean interior when you and your pick-up driver thoroughly inspect your car or truck at both the pick-up and drop off locations. The exterior mirrors on your car or truck should be folded in for safety and also check again for any items you may have overlooked that protrude from your vehicle. Be sure that you turn off and disable any alarms and anti-theft devices before releasing your vehicle to the carrier driver because should they be activated during transport your battery could be drained making the driver's job both difficult and more time-consuming. Remember that your car may be one of up to ten vehicles sharing space on the car hauler trailer and might need to be loaded and unloaded more than one time to accommodate for the pick-ups and drop-offs of these other vehicles along the delivery route, thus it is very important that you tell the driver about any odd non-standard tricks or tips that are needed to start or drive the vehicle you are shipping.

Shipping Impacts

Bad weather occasionally interrupts auto transport schedules and may change expected pick-up and delivery times. Especially during hurricane season, the Gulf and southeastern states occasionally are subjected to inclement weather that can affect vehicle shipping schedules. Inclement winter weather fronts can bring snow, ice, and blizzards which can impact car shipping schedules. Although unlikely to affect your vehicle delivery schedule, flooding is another weather-related event that occasionally impacts vehicle pick-up and delivery times. Check for any possible weather-related delays in Alabama and Illinois.

Auto transport shipping schedules are sometimes affected by other types of road delays. The increased numbers of wildfires mainly on the western side of the US can also impact your vehicles pick-up and delivery time. Detours, road construction, and heavy traffic also can affect your scheduled pickup or delivery times. Check for any possible traffic-related delays for Alabama and Illinois. If your pick up or delivery address is in a neighborhood with low hanging tree branches the carrier driver will not risk damaging the vehicles on the trailers upper deck and other arrangements such as meeting in an open parking area would be necessary. Some other road-related conditions that can impact auto shipping schedules include the items listed below.

  • Narrow streets
  • Dead end streets
  • Limited Access Avenues
  • Weight restricted bridges
  • Low hanging phone cables
  • Extreme grades
  • Low overpasses
