Massachusetts Auto Transport Rates
Your auto transport needs can greatly increase or decrease the cost of having your car or truck shipped. You can save significantly by choosing an open rather than an enclosed transport. Every day auto dealerships safely receive vehicles 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 crossover, pickup truck, convertible, mid-size car, crew cab truck, and lower rider you are shipping can also impact your rate. Usually the larger the vehicle the more it will cost to ship. If your vehicle has any non-standard accessories that have altered its size, this can also increase the cost of shipping. Listed below are some of the accessories that may increase cost of your shipment.
- 4 wheel drive
- Side steps
- Over sized tires
- Running boards
- Extended side mirrors
- Rear bumper guards
- Roof rack
- Front bumper guards
- Grill guards
Massachusetts auto transport rates are calculated per mile and these rates change depending on the cost of fuel. Often you can save money by driving your auto to a shipping terminal and picking it up at another shipping terminal near your delivery address. This method can save you a lot of money but if you prefer or need the convenience of door to door delivery make sure that your pick-up and delivery addresses are both accessible by a commercial full-size tractor trailer. If the vehicle you are shipping is not operational this will significantly raise your rate. 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, as 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.

Massachusetts Auto Shipping Process
The best way to avoid any problems with your Massachusetts 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 Massachusetts 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.
Occasionally local road conditions and heavy traffic, especially in and around Boston, can impact pickup and delivery times and locations. Most auto transports are accomplished via semi-trucks. These 18 wheelers are difficult to maneuver on narrow roads and streets. Massachusetts has 76,855 miles of interstates, highways, and 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 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 Massachusetts. Following are some of the road conditions to consider when selecting a pickup or drop-off location.
