Connecticut 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 compact car, extended cab pickup, sedan, convertible, and kingcab pickup 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.
- Camper trailers
- Grill guards
- Oversized antennas
- Running boards
- Side steps
- Trailer hitch
- Rear bumper guards
- Front bumper guards
- Running lights
Connecticut 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.

Connecticut Auto Shipping Process
Careful preparation is the most effective way to prevent any issues with your Connecticut auto transport. If your vehicle is inoperable or partially inoperable it can still be shipped although the extra logistics, time, and labor will be reflected in your rate. You MUST inform the carrier of any such defects BEFORE you arrange your shipping schedule. Typically a pick-up driver that arrives without prior knowledge that a vehicle is inoperative will refuse to take possession of that vehicle. Always verify that both your pickup and delivery addresses are accurate. Do not utilize your vehicle as a secondary shipping container. Weight is an important calculation in determining your rate and personal belongings are usually not insured. Also leave no more than a quarter tank of fuel in your vehicle.
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 the key to a successful and easy auto transport experience. Our Connecticut auto transport partners will attempt to keep you informed every step of the way. Our partners schedules normally run on-time, however sometimes situations created by weather, road conditions, or other traffic related problems are possible. Keeping in contact with your driver will help reduce a lot of potential stress.
When choosing door to door transport services, local road conditions can impact pickup and delivery times and locations. Most auto transports are accomplished by semi-trucks. These 18 wheelers are difficult to maneuver on narrow roads and streets. Connecticut has 45,744 miles of highways with many rural roads and other road conditions that could prevent or limit access for large trucks. If the pickup and/or drop off locations have any impediments that could prevent the truck from accessing the location we recommend you select a different location. This can easily be accomplished by coordinating with the driver. Selecting a truck stop or supermarket parking lot is often 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 Connecticut. Following are some of the road conditions to consider when selecting a pickup or drop-off location.
Pickup and Delivery Impacts Guide
- Low overpasses
- Narrow Cul-de-sacs
- County road
