Louisiana 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 full-size crossover, mid-size crossover, pickup truck, crew cab truck, crossover, and hatchback 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.
- Trailer hitch
- Camper trailers
- Roof rack
- Running boards
- 4 wheel drive
- Over sized tires
- Rear bumper guards
- Oversized antennas
- Side steps
Louisiana 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.

Louisiana Auto Shipping Process
The best way to avoid any problems with your Louisiana car transport is by careful preparation. Remember that weight is important in calculating 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. Be sure that both your delivery and pick up addresses are correct. 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.
To keep your vehicle shipping simple and hassle-free, the most important action you can take is to maintain open communication throughout the process. Our Louisiana trusted carriers will always attempt to remain in contact with you. Our affiliated auto transport services usually provide on-time pick-ups and deliveries, but occasionally unforeseeable situations can arise over the road. Inclement weather, road conditions, construction detours, traffic etc. occasionally impact scheduled pick-up and delivery times. Good communication with your carrier or driver can alleviate any stress should any unexpected delays or issues arise.
When selecting door to door transport services, local road conditions can impact pickup and delivery times and locations. The majority of auto transports are accomplished by semi-trailers. Big rigs are difficult to maneuver on many roads and streets. Louisiana has 130,038 miles of highways and byways with many rural roads and other road conditions that will prevent or limit access for big rigs. 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 Louisiana. Below are some of the road conditions to consider when selecting a pickup or drop-off location.
