Arizona Auto Transport Rates
Your shipping requirements can greatly increase or decrease the cost of having your vehicle shipped. You can save a lot by choosing open transport rather than enclosed. Auto dealerships safely receive vehicles every day from open car carrier trailers. To save money we highly recommend this option unless of course you are shipping an irreplaceable luxury, high end sports car, or antique vehicle. Other important cost factors include the size, weight and type of car or truck. The body type such as convertible, pickup truck, hatchback, sports coupe, and off-road vehicle you are shipping can also impact your rate. Usually the larger the vehicle the higher the shipping cost. If your vehicle has any non-standard accessories that have altered the size of your vehicle they can also increase the cost of shipping. Below are some of the accessories that can increase cost.
- Trailer hitch
- Rear bumper guards
- Running lights
- Grill guards
- Extended side mirrors
Arizona auto transport rates are calculated per mile and these rates change depending on the cost of fuel. Often you can find a lower rate by driving your vehicle to a shipping terminal and picking the vehicle up at another shipping terminal near your delivery address. Terminal to terminal service can save you a lot of money but if you need or prefer the convenience of door to door service make sure that your pick-up and drop-off locations are both accessible by a full-sized semi-tractor trailer. If the car or truck you are transporting is not operational this will significantly increase your rate. You must inform the shipping company if your auto is inoperable. The time of year also affects the rates of the auto transport shipping carriers, summer is high season and the rates are increased. The method of payment you choose to use for your vehicle delivery can sometimes affect your rate and some companies prefer COD. Most carriers accept COD and credit cards. Please check with the company first if you desire to pay with a check.

Arizona Auto Shipping Process
The best way to avoid any problems with your Arizona car shipping is by careful preparation. Be sure that both your delivery and pick up addresses are correct. Remember that weight is a major factor in your rate. Do not use your vehicle as a method to ship other personal items and have only a quarter tank of gas or less in your vehicle at the time of pick up. You can ship an inoperable vehicle, but it will be more expensive. Vehicles that are not steerable and/or do not have operable brakes will cost significantly more. You MUST inform the carrier of the vehicles condition and be prepared to pay a higher rate. Many drivers will not transport an inoperable vehicle if they have not been first notified.
When your car or truck is picked up you will be required to complete a bill of lading. It is very important to accurately complete this document. The driver and you will inspect your vehicle and document any damage to the vehicle, such as dents, broken windows, paint scratches, etc. Many drivers will take photos of any damage to protect themselves from false claims. When you or your authorized representative receives your auto at the drop-off location be sure that you, or they, carefully check the entire vehicle prior to signing the bill of lading. Failing to do this can make it very difficult if not impossible to receive compensation for any unfortunate damage. We carefully choose the best auto shipping carriers in the business but should any unexpected issue or problems come up you should definitely report them to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.
Communication is critical to an easy auto transport. Our Arizona auto transport partners will attempt to keep you informed every step of the way. Our partners typically deliver on-time, however occasionally situations created by weather, road conditions, or other traffic problems are possible. Keeping an open line of communication to your carrier or driver can help eliminate a lot of stress.
When selecting door to door transport services, local road conditions can impact pickup and delivery times and locations. Most auto transport deliveries are completed by semi-trailers. Big rigs are difficult to maneuver on many roads and streets. Arizona has 144,393 miles of interstates, highways and streets with many rural roads and other road conditions that can prevent or limit access for large trucks. If the pickup and/or drop off addresses have any obstructions that could prevent a large truck from accessing either location, we recommend you choose a different location. This can easily be resolved by coordinating with the driver. Selecting a shopping plaza or other open area is usually the solution. Traffic can also impact pickup and/or drop-off schedules. We recommend you check road and traffic conditions for delays. Check here to find current traffic conditions in Arizona. Below are some of the road conditions to consider when selecting a pickup or drop-off location.

- Low hanging phone cables
- Low overpasses
- Limited Access Avenues
- Narrow Cul-de-sacs

With an average of 300 sunny days a year in Arizona, car shipping and delivery schedules are seldom impacted by weather. The weather is usually divided in two regions, the mountains and higher elevation of northern Arizona and the deserts of the southern areas. The northern mountainous area sees moderate snowfall each winter averaging 60 inches per year that can impact shipping schedules. The northern areas get 30 inches of rain annually while the southern desert areas only average 9 inches of rain and no snow. Traffic and dust storms can affect delivery and pick-up schedules in cities such as Phoenix. Auto shipping businesses are not often affected by weather events in the southern areas. Check the current Arizona weather for any possible auto shipping delays.
