West Virginia 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 compact car, sedan, crew cab truck, sub-compact car, and kingcab pickup 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.

  • Side steps
  • 4 wheel drive
  • Extended side mirrors
  • Camper trailers
  • Rear bumper guards
  • Nerf bars
  • Oversized antennas
  • Grill guards
  • Front bumper guards

West Virginia 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.

West Virginia Auto Shipping Process

The best way to avoid any problems with your West Virginia 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 the key to a successful and easy auto transport experience. Our {mainStateFullName}} auto transport partners will attempt to keep you informed every step of the way. Our partners schedules normally run on-time, however sometimes situations created by weather, road conditions, or other traffic related problems are possible. Keeping in contact with your driver will help reduce a lot of potential stress.

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. West Virginia has 79,891 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 the 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 West Virginia. Below are some of the road conditions to consider when selecting a pickup or drop-off location.
