Ohio Auto Transport Rates
One of the biggest factors in the cost of your auto transport is selecting open or enclosed transport. Auto dealerships safely receive vehicles every day on open car 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 factors that impact shipping cost include the size, weight and type of car or truck. The body type such as full size pickup, minivan, compact car, crew cab truck, full-size car, and off-road vehicle you are shipping can also affect your shipping cost. Usually the larger the vehicle the higher the shipping rate. If your vehicle has any non-standard accessories that have altered its dimensions they can also increase the cost of shipping. Below are some of the accessories that can increase cost.
- Trailer hitch
- 4 wheel drive
- Running boards
- Roof rack
- Running lights
- Over sized tires
- Rear bumper guards
- Side steps
- Grill guards
Ohio auto shipping rates are calculated by the mile and rates change dependent upon the cost of fuel. Often you can save money by driving your vehicle to a shipping terminal and picking the vehicle up at another shipping terminal near your delivery address. This method can save you a lot of money but if you need or prefer door to door auto transport make sure that your pick-up and delivery locations are accessible by a full-size tractor trailer. You must inform the shipping company if your auto is inoperable. If the auto you are transporting is not operational this will significantly raise your rate. The time of year also affects the rates of shipping a vehicle, 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. Many companies prefer COD, but most carriers will also accept credit cards. Please check with the company first if you desire to pay with a check.

Ohio Auto Shipping Process
The best way to avoid any problems with your Ohio 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.
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 Ohio 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. Most auto transports are completed by big rigs. These semi-trucks are difficult to maneuver on narrow roads and streets. Ohio has 262,851 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 Ohio. Below are some of the road conditions to consider when selecting a pickup or drop-off location.
