Kentucky 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 extended cab pickup, full size pickup, kingcab pickup, roadster car, full-size crossover, and crew cab truck 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.

  • Front bumper guards
  • Rear bumper guards
  • Grill guards
  • Lift kits
  • Over sized tires
  • Running boards
  • Side steps
  • Roof rack
  • Trailer hitch

Kentucky auto transport rates are calculated per mile and these rates change depending on the cost of fuel. Often you can find a lower rate by driving your vehicle to a shipping terminal and picking the vehicle up at another shipping terminal near your delivery address. Terminal to terminal service can save you a lot of money but if you need or prefer the convenience of door to door service make sure that your pick-up and drop-off locations are both accessible by a full-sized semi-tractor trailer. If the car or truck you are transporting is not operational this will significantly increase your rate. You must inform the shipping company if your auto is inoperable. The time of year also affects the rates of the auto transport shipping carriers, 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 and some companies prefer COD. Most carriers accept COD and credit cards. Please check with the company first if you desire to pay with a check.

Kentucky Auto Shipping Process

The best way to avoid any problems with your Kentucky car shipping is by careful preparation. 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. 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.

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 Kentucky 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.

Shipping Impacts

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-trailers. These 18 wheelers are difficult to maneuver on narrow roads and streets. Kentucky has 165,944 miles of roadways with many rural roads and other road conditions that will 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 mall or supermarket parking lot is usually 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 Kentucky. Below are some of the road conditions to consider when selecting a pickup or drop-off location.

Pickup and Delivery Impacts Guide

  • Narrow bridges
  • Weight restricted bridges
  • Narrow streets
  • Narrow Cul-de-sacs
  • Accsess hours

  • Extreme grades

Kentucky has an average of 188 sunny days and its mild climate does not typically impact auto shipping schedules. Summers are moderate with some hot and humid days and winters are very mild with highs in the upper 30’s. Summer high temperatures average close to 80 degrees and rainfall averages 50 inches. Snowfall only averages 13 inches as the temperature rarely drops to freezing. Car deliveries and pick-ups are rarely delayed by weather in Kentucky although a winter freeze occasionally may impact shipping or delivery schedules. Check the current Kentucky weather for any possible auto shipping delays.
