How to choose car shipping companies in West Palm Beach

Moving is complicated enough without worrying about how to get your vehicle from point A to point B. That’s why auto transport companies have become increasingly popular in recent years. These businesses move cars, trucks and other vehicles safely and reliably across long distances.

But how do you find a trustworthy auto carrier? And what’s a fair price to pay? Here’s an estimate of what you can expect to pay when shipping your vehicle:

Estimated transport rates to/from West Palm Beach

From To Estimated cost
New York City West Palm Beach $699
New Jersey West Palm Beach $699
North Carolina West Palm Beach $607
Los Angeles West Palm Beach $883
Baltimore West Palm Beach $699
West Palm Beach New York City $699
West Palm Beach New Jersey $699
West Palm Beach North Carolina $607
West Palm Beach Los Angeles $883
West Palm Beach Baltimore $662
Based on shipping a large, operable sedan in an open carrier with availability 45 days in advance.

These prices are a function of a number of factors. The most basic consideration is the time of year. If you are planning to transport your vehicle during peak season in South Florida, which extends from October into April, expect to pay substantially more for transport.

You will also have a choice between open and enclosed transport. During enclosed transport, your vehicle is tucked away within a cargo container. This offers increased security and protection from weather and road debris, but it also comes with a higher price. Covered transport can cost twice as much as open transport.

Other factors that can affect price are:

  • Type of vehicle: More expensive vehicles are more costly to ship.
  • Origin and destination: Transport costs are higher for longer distances and for pickups or drop-offs in isolated areas.
  • Condition of vehicle: If a vehicle is nonoperational, it will cost more to ship.
  • Shipping timeline: Flexibility will give you better rates. Expedited shipping or specific requests for pickup or drop-off days will be more pricey.

When scheduling for auto transport in West Palm Beach, it helps to give a company 30-60 days of notice before your preferred shipping date. This will allow enough time for a carrier to schedule the shipment or for a broker to find you a carrier with the lowest possible rate.

When setting up auto transport in West Palm Beach, always make sure you are using a company that is properly licensed and insured. Carriers and brokers will display MC Docket numbers, and carriers will have a USDOT number.

There are several steps you can take before the carrier arrives to pick up your vehicle. Remove all personal belongings, check that the fuel is 25-50 percent full and remove any automated toll devices. Once the carrier arrives, the driver should inspect the car and note damage on a bill of lading. Be certain to inspect the car again before taking delivery.
