How We Calculate Vehicle Shipping Quote

Understanding the calculation of your auto transport quote is integral to our commitment to transparency here at Easy Auto Ship. Various factors shape this process, each playing a distinctive role in determining the final quote for your vehicle’s shipping needs.


The length of the journey plays a significant role in determining the auto transport quote. In simple terms, the further the distance, the higher the cost. It’s not just about the fuel consumption but also wear and tear on the vehicle and the time the driver spends on the road. For instance, if you require shipping from New York to Los Angeles, it will cost more than if you were shipping between New York and Chicago. It’s a direct relationship; as the miles add up, so does the transport quote.


Another factor that can impact the shipping quote is the route to be taken. This is not solely about the distance but also the accessibility of the route. If the destination is in a major city or on a well-traveled highway, the transport cost may be less than if the vehicle were delivered to a rural or hard-to-reach location. To illustrate, shipping a car from Dallas to Houston, both major cities with easy highway access would likely cost less than shipping from a remote town in Texas to Houston.

Shipping Date

The requested shipping date can also influence the quote. If the shipping date is flexible, then it’s possible to get a more economical quote. However, if you need express transport with a specific pickup and delivery date, it could cost more due to the logistics involved. For example, if you require your vehicle to be shipped in the next 2-3 days, it may cost more than if you’re flexible and can wait 4-5 days because we can then take out time to find a carrier with a lower price or negotiate a lower price with them.

Vehicle Make & Model

The make and model of the vehicle being transported are also considered when calculating the quote. Larger vehicles like SUVs or trucks usually cost more to ship than sedans or coupes. The reason is larger vehicles take up more space on the transport truck and may require special arrangements. For instance, it would cost more to transport a Ford F-150 than a Honda Civic due to its size and weight.

Auto Transport Type

The type of transport chosen will significantly influence the quote. There are two main types of transport: open and enclosed. Open transport is the most common and cost-effective method. However, if you have a luxury or classic car that needs extra protection, you might opt for enclosed transport. While it provides additional protection, it comes at a higher cost. For example, if you’re shipping a vintage Mustang, you might choose enclosed transport for added protection, which would be reflected in the quote.

Vehicle Condition

The condition of your automobile plays a significant role in the calculation of your shipping quote. If your vehicle is operational, it’s simpler for the transport team to load and unload it onto the truck. However, additional equipment and labor are necessary if the vehicle is non-operational, which typically increases the cost. For instance, a fully functional sedan will be more affordable to transport than a non-operational SUV.

Vehicle Details

Every car is unique, and so is its shipping cost. If there are any modifications or additions to your vehicle, it can affect the transport quote. For example, if your car has been lowered, had a rooftop carrier added, or any other modification that changes its default specifications, it could require special handling during shipping. A stock Ford Mustang might cost less to transport than the same model with a custom body kit and oversized tires.

Height, Length & Curb Weight

There’s no one-size-fits-all in vehicle shipping. The dimensions and weight of your vehicle directly impact the shipping cost. Larger, heavier vehicles take up more space on the transport truck and add to the overall weight of the load. So, a compact car like a Honda Civic would be less expensive to transport than a large pickup truck like the Ford F-150 due to the significant difference in height, length, and curb weight.

Pickup Location

Not all locations are equal when vehicle shipping. Transporting your vehicle from or to metro areas generally costs less due to the higher availability of trucks and routes. Conversely, remote areas might require extra mileage and effort, increasing the shipping fees. For instance, shipping a car from New York City to Los Angeles would likely be more affordable than transporting the same vehicle from a remote location in Montana to a small town in Nevada.

Time of Year

The time of year plays a substantial part in determining your car shipping quote. Certain seasons, like summer, are busier for auto shipping companies and might have higher prices due to the high demand. On the flip side, shipping during the slower winter months could be less expensive. For example, shipping during the busy summer may increase the transport quote compared to a less busy time of the year, like the fall.

Our Car Shipping Calculator considers all these factors when providing personalized, accurate transport quotes. Transporting a vehicle with Easy Auto Ship is a stress-free process, regardless of the condition, details, or size of your car, location, or time of year.
