North Carolina Auto Transport Rates
You can save a lot by choosing open transport rather than enclosed. Auto dealerships safely receive vehicles from open car carrier trailers daily. To save money we recommend this option unless of course you are transporting an irreplaceable luxury, high end sports car, or antique vehicle. Other important factors include the size, weight and type of your vehicle. The body style such as crossover, lower rider, crew cab truck, pickup truck, sports car, and mid-size car, you are shipping may also impact your transport rate. Usually the larger the vehicle the higher the transport cost. If your auto has any non-standard accessories that have altered the width, height, or length of your car or truck this could also increase the cost of shipping. Below are some of the accessories that can impact cost.
- Rear bumper guards
- Roof rack
- Camper trailers
- 4 wheel drive
- Running lights
- Over sized tires
- Trailer hitch
- Oversized antennas
- Nerf bars
North Carolina 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.

North Carolina Auto Shipping Process
The best way to avoid any problems with your North Carolina 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 North Carolina 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 transports are completed by big rigs. These semi-trucks are difficult to maneuver on narrow roads and streets. North Carolina has 225,168 miles of highways with many rural roads and other road conditions that may hinder or limit access for large trucks. If the pickup and/or delivery locations have any obstructions that could prevent the truck from accessing either location we recommend you select a better location. This can easily be accomplished by coordinating with the driver. Selecting a plaza or supermarket parking lot is often a better choice. 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 North Carolina. Below are some of the road conditions to consider when selecting a pickup or drop-off location.
