California to Maryland Car Shipping Rates

Decisions you make can greatly increase or decrease the cost of your California to Maryland auto shipping rates. You can save a lot off your rate simply by choosing open rather than enclosed transport. Another way to save on your rate is by opting to drop off your vehicle at a freight terminal or car depot and pick it up from another freight terminal or car depot close to your delivery address instead of door-to-door delivery. The body type such as sedan, king cab pickup, crossover, minivan, full-size car, sports coupe, convertible, and full-size pickup, weight, and size of your vehicle will also affect your rate. Any modifications that increase the size of your vehicle may impact your rate, knowing the exact dimensions of your vehicle will help ensure that your quote is accurate. Below is a list of accessories that can impact your shipping rate.

  • Side steps
  • Trailer hitch
  • Lift kits
  • Nerf bars
  • Oversized antennas
  • Oversized tires
  • Front bumper guards
  • Rear bumper guards
  • Extended side mirrors

Be sure to inform the shipper well in advance if you have a non-operational vehicle because they may refuse to pick it up unless they had been informed and had planned for it. Vehicles that are not operable can still be transported but because they increase the time and labor required for them to be picked up and delivered this will raise your rate. Rates increase or decrease based on current diesel fuel prices. Seasonal rate changes also impact the amount or rates for your car or truck delivery quotes, summer fuel prices are usually at their peak, and demand for car shipping is also the busiest in July and August. Typically, drivers can take payment on delivery by debit and credit cards, but many prefer COD and you may be able to get a small discount for paying in cash. Remember if you plan to pay with a check, you should get preapproval from the auto shipping company beforehand.

It is important for you to remove any personal items from your inside your car or truck as shipping companies will not be responsible for safeguarding them nor will they carry insurance for anything other than the vehicles they are transporting. To prevent any possible damage, as a precaution you should remove any non-standard items and also any non-retractable antennas that could possibly be damaged when your vehicle is being loaded and unloaded from the car hauler trailer. Your vehicle will be thoroughly inspected by you and the driver at the pick-up and delivery locations, you can make this process easier by having washed your car or truck and cleaned the interior. Exterior mirrors, when possible, should be folded in and also verify that you haven’t missed any other items that stick out from your car or truck. Assist your delivery driver by having any anti-theft or alarm systems disabled because if they become active your battery could be drained and create more time and work for the driver transporting your vehicle. Do not forget to inform the driver if your vehicle has any oddities or tricks that aren’t standard to start and or drive your car or truck because it is possible that your vehicle will need to be reloaded to different positions on the car hauler trailer to accommodate the other vehicles.

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.
