California to Michigan Car Transport Rates

Decisions you make can greatly increase or decrease the cost of your California to Michigan 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 crossover, sports car, hatchback, pickup truck, full-size car, full-size crossover, minivan, king cab pickup, and sedan, 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.

  • Oversized tires
  • Running boards
  • Front bumper guards
  • Oversized antennas
  • Roof rack
  • Grill guards
  • Lift kits
  • Extended side mirrors
  • Trailer hitch

Typically, a driver will not load a non-operable car unless prior plans such as scheduling the vehicle to be last on and first off to avoid excess time and labor. Non-operational vehicles can be transported in open vehicle haulers, but the carrier or driver must be informed as early as possible and they are billed at higher rates. Rates are tied to whatever the current fuel prices are. High season for the car shipping business occurs in the summer months. The combination of demand and gas prices typically peaking in the summer make for the highest rates. One other method to possibly save money is to pay COD upon delivery. Drivers often desire cash and might offer a small discount for COD although they typically do also accept credit or debit cards. If by chance you plan to pay with a check be sure to get pre-approval from your auto transport company prior to your delivery date.

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.

Remove all personal belongings from the vehicle. 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 typically be covered by the shipper’s insurance. Remove any antennas that don’t automatically retract and any non-standard accessories that could be damaged, also any other items that stick out from your vehicle should be removed as a precaution to prevent any possible damage. Washing your vehicle and cleaning the interior prior to your scheduled pick-up time will make the inspection process simpler and faster; you will be carefully inspecting your vehicle with the driver at your pick-up location. If your vehicles exterior mirrors can be folded do this to protect them. Again, any items that stick out on your vehicle should be reduced if possible as a precaution against any possible damage. Disable any anti-theft or alarm devices your vehicle may have. An activated alarm could drain your vehicle's battery which could increase the time and labor for your auto shipping. Be sure to inform the shipper if there are any quirks or oddities to operate your vehicle. Your vehicle may be transferred from one position to another on the transport trailer depending upon other pickups and drop-offs and the driver needs to know if there are any oddities in operating your vehicle.
