Idaho 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, mid-size crossover, and full-size car 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
  • Oversized antennas
  • Trailer hitch
  • Extended side mirrors
  • Lift kits
  • Side steps
  • Nerf bars
  • Over sized tires
  • 4 wheel drive
  • Rear bumper guards
  • Grill guards

Idaho auto transport rates are calculated by the mile and rates change depending on 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. Terminal to terminal 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. The method of payment you choose to use for your vehicle delivery can sometimes affect your rate. Although some companies prefer COD, most carriers accept both COD and credit cards. Please check with your carrier first if you intend to pay with a check. The time of year also affects the rates of shipping a vehicle, summer is high season and the rates are higher. If the vehicle you are transporting is not operational this will significantly add to your rate. You must inform the shipping company if your vehicle is inoperable.

Idaho Auto Shipping Process

The best way to avoid any problems with your Idaho car shipping is by careful preparation. Vehicles that cannot be steered and/or do not have functioning 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. 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.

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 Idaho 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 choosing door to door transport services, local road conditions can impact pickup and delivery times and locations. Most auto transports are accomplished by semi-trailers. These large trucks are difficult to maneuver on narrow roads and streets. Idaho has 11,829 miles of highways and roads with many rural roads and other road conditions that could prevent or limit access for large trucks. If the pickup and/or delivery locations have any obstructions 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 Idaho. Following are some of the road conditions to consider when selecting a pickup or drop-off location.

Pickup and Delivery Impacts Guide

  • Limited Access Avenues
  • Extreme grades
  • Accsess hours
  • Narrow bridges
  • Low overpasses
  • Road construction
  • Low hanging phone cables
  • Narrow streets
  • Weight restricted bridges

Idaho has an average of 206 sunny days per year. Weather is not often a factor for auto delivery or car pick-up schedules. Although Idaho is three hundred and fifty miles inland from the Pacific Ocean the state is still affected by maritime weather especially in the winter months when cloud cover and precipitation are at their highest. The maritime weather patterns help to keep winter temperatures moderate and in the 40’s on average. Humidity is relatively low in the summer months and temperatures average in the high 70’s for most of Idaho. Winters are cold in the mountains with temperatures in the 20’s at night and snowfall averages of 100 inches which does occasionally impact pick-up and delivery times. The mountain areas occasionally impact auto shipping schedules in the winter. Rain averages differ from 25 inches per year in McCall but only 11 inches per year in Boise. Check the current Idaho weather for any possible auto transport delays.
