Tennessee 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 sedan, extended cab pickup, kingcab pickup, sub-compact car, off-road vehicle, and pickup truck 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.

  • Lift kits
  • 4 wheel drive
  • Side steps
  • Rear bumper guards
  • Roof rack
  • Grill guards
  • Running lights
  • Over sized tires
  • Nerf bars

Tennessee auto transport rates are calculated by the mile and rates change depending on 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. Terminal to terminal 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. The method of payment you choose to use for your vehicle delivery can sometimes affect your rate. Although some companies prefer COD, most carriers accept both COD and credit cards. Please check with your carrier first if you intend to pay with a check. The time of year also affects the rates of shipping a vehicle, summer is high season and the rates are higher. If the vehicle you are transporting is not operational this will significantly add to your rate. You must inform the shipping company if your vehicle is inoperable.

Tennessee Auto Shipping Process

The best way to avoid any problems with your Tennessee car transport 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.

Maintaining open communication is the best method to assure a hassle-free vehicle delivery. Our Tennessee trusted auto shipping partners will try to keep you in the loop every step of the way. Our affiliate carriers normally run as scheduled but sometimes road conditions, traffic issues, weather or other problems can impact scheduled times. Staying in contact with your driver can help eliminate any aggravation in the unlikely event your pick up or delivery time need to be adjusted.

Shipping Impacts

When selecting door to door transport services, local road conditions can impact pickup and delivery times and locations. Most auto transports are accomplished by semi-trucks. These big rigs are difficult to maneuver on narrow roads and streets. Tennessee has 202,185 miles of highways and byways 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 either location we recommend you select a different location. This can easily be accomplished by coordinating with the driver. Selecting a truck stop, shopping plaza or other open area is often the solution. 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 Tennessee. Below are some of the road conditions to consider when selecting a pickup or drop-off location.

  • Low hanging tree branches
