Indiana Auto Transport Rates
Your transport requirements can greatly impact the cost of having your auto transported. You can save significantly by choosing open transport instead of enclosed. Auto dealerships safely receive autos from open car carrier trailers every day. To save money we highly recommend this option unless you are shipping an irreplaceable antique, sports car, race car, or luxurious vehicle. Other important cost factors include the size, weight and type of car or truck. The body type such as crossover, extended cab pickup, full-size car, crew cab truck, sports coupe, and roadster car you are shipping can also impact your rate. Typically, the larger the vehicles size, the higher the transport cost. If your vehicle has any non-standard accessories that have altered the length, width, or height of your vehicle they can also increase the cost of transport. Listed below are some of the non-standard accessories that can increase cost.
- Oversized antennas
- Trailer hitch
- Running boards
- Grill guards
- Front bumper guards
- Side steps
- Nerf bars
Indiana auto transport rates are computed per mile and regularly fluctuate in direct relation to fuel prices. You can typically reduce your rate by dropping off your vehicle at a freight terminal and then picking it up from another freight terminal near your delivery address. If you require or prefer door to door pickup/delivery keep in mind that both the pickup and delivery addresses must be accessible to full sized trucks. If your vehicle is inoperable it can still be shipped open transport but as this increases time and labor for the carrier it will cost a lot more. You must inform the carrier company in advance if your vehicle has any operational defects. How you choose to pay your bill may also affect your final rate. Some carriers prefer COD but most will accept credit card payments as well. If you intend to settle your invoice by check it is important to arrange this with the shipper beforehand.

Indiana Auto Shipping Process
The best way to avoid any problems with your Indiana car shipping is by careful preparation. 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 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.
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 critical to an easy auto transport. Our Indiana auto transport partners will attempt to keep you informed every step of the way. Our partners typically deliver on-time, however occasionally situations created by weather, road conditions, or other traffic problems are possible. Keeping an open line of communication to your carrier or driver can help eliminate a lot of stress.
When selecting door to door transport services, local road conditions can impact pickup and delivery times and locations. Most auto deliveries are accomplished by semi-trucks. These large 18 wheelers are difficult to maneuver on narrow roads and streets. Florida has almost 300,000 miles of roadways with many rural roads and other road conditions that may prevent or limit access for semi-trailers. 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 plaza, truck stop or other open area is usually a better option. 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 Indiana. Below are some of the road conditions to consider when selecting a pickup or drop-off location.
