Arkansas 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

Arkansas auto transport rates are calculated by the mile and rates change dependent upon the cost of fuel. Often you can save money by driving your vehicle to a shipping terminal and picking the vehicle up at another shipping terminal near your delivery address. This method can save you a lot of money but if you need or prefer door to door auto transport make sure that your pick-up and delivery locations are accessible by a full-size tractor trailer. You must inform the shipping company if your auto is inoperable. If the auto you are transporting is not operational this will significantly raise your rate. The time of year also affects the rates of shipping a vehicle, 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. Many companies prefer COD, but most carriers will also accept credit cards. Please check with the company first if you desire to pay with a check.

Arkansas Auto Shipping Process

The best way to avoid any problems with your Arkansas car shipping is by careful preparation. Remember that weight is important in calculating 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. Be sure that both your delivery and pick up addresses are correct. 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 vehicle's 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.

Keeping an open line of communication with your carrier or driver is the best thing you can do to assure a problem free auto shipping experience. Our Arkansas auto transport partners will attempt to keep you informed throughout the entire transport process. Our partners typically deliver on-time, however occasionally situations created by road conditions, weather, or other traffic related delays are possible. Staying in contact with your driver will help reduce a lot of stress.

Shipping Impacts

When selecting door to door transport services, local road conditions can impact pickup and delivery times and locations. The majority of auto deliveries are accomplished by semi-trailers. Tractor trailers can be difficult to maneuver on many roads and streets. Arkansas has 209,159 miles of highways, interstates, and streets with many rural roads and other road conditions that will 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 the location we recommend you choose a different location. This can easily be accomplished by coordinating with the driver. Selecting a shopping plaza or mall parking lot is usually best. 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 Arkansas. Below are some of the road conditions to consider when selecting a pickup or drop-off location.

Pickup and Delivery Impacts Guide

  • Low hanging phone cables
  • Low overpasses
  • Limited Access Avenues
  • Narrow Cul-de-sacs
  • One way streets
  • County road
  • Access hours
  • Road construction

Arkansas has an annual average of 218 sunny days per year and car shipping schedules are seldom delayed by weather. Although not on the Gulf Arkansas is close enough that the warm water in the Gulf of Mexico affects the state's weather. Events such as hurricanes can impact transport schedules. Summers are hot and humid and with mild winters, weather does not often create problems for auto shipping and car delivery services. Average summer temperatures are in the 80’s but highs in the 90’s are common in the central and southern areas. Winter lows drop into the 40’s and in the mountains of the west and north there occasionally are below freezing temperatures. The average annual rainfall in the state is 50 inches although the Ouachita Mountains often exceed 60 inches and do receive snow in the winter which, although uncommon, could change your vehicles delivery or pick-up time.
