Three Ways To Secure Great Car Shipping Deals

Jennifer Strong
25 February 2009

Car shipping might just seem like another cost that you have to add to your moving bill, but it really does not have to be. By getting the right deal, you can secure this service at a price that will be far less than driving the vehicle to its new home on your own. Consider all of the costs associated with driving one or more vehicles to a new place. Once you have this cost analysis in hand, locate multiple auto transport companies, and see just how much you could save by shipping the vehicles instead of driving them. Keep in mind, however, that there are some very good deals on this service out there, and you cannot afford to pass them by. In this interest, here are a couple of ways that you can go about finding such deals for your own situation.

Compare Quotes

Just like any moving service, you should always get multiple moving quotes for your move. Comparing different quotes is the first method of finding a good deal. Obviously, you need to make sure that you are comparing the same services in order to find the lowest prices. Also make sure that you choose open transport as your method, as it is the least expensive way to ship a car. Once you are sure that you are comparing apples to apples, you can easily see the lowest price quote for your needs.


Some companies will haggle on prices with you. Keep in mind that many companies are national, and as such, they have set pricing. Local companies, where you can visit in person, will be more apt to adjust pricing for the right job. Check both options to see which one will land you with the better deal. Do not be afraid to walk out of a place because they choose to stick to a price that you are not willing to pay.

Referrals and Coupons

Another great way to land a good deal on your vehicle transport needs is to look for a referral or a coupon. If you are in Florida, consider looking online for Florida car shipping coupons. By getting these coupons, you can save a set fee or percentage off of your total costs associated with a particular service. Make sure to read all of the fine print before you sign any contracts, however. Some coupons may require a specific, more expensive, service than you might want. Keep in mind also; hiring a Florida car shipping company if you live in Florida can also give you the chance at a discount.

No matter where you are going or why you are moving, getting the best deal on your car shipping needs can go a long way to making your move simple and stress free. There is various different ways to get these deals, so make sure to check every option out before finalizing your choice. Remember, saving money here will allow you more money when you get into your new home, which is a goal that we all should have.
