Auto transports are thought of to be a hassle to new transporters, but that soon changes once they have transported once or twice. Quickly, customers start seeing the benefits of auto transports such as how much they save in money and time. Depending on which service you opt for, you can get a decent trade-off of price for speed of transport and/or safety features.
Auto transports are popular because of how much people can save with them. When people calculate how much they would spend on gas, food, and rooming, they will see that they will end up spending more taking their vehicle across the country than opting for an auto transport. An average price for an auto transport can be from $950-$2000+ (depending on the service and route your vehicle must take). The pricing of an auto transport looks grand at first, but the pricing should be fair (depending on which auto transport company you go with).
Auto transport brokers will always want to set-up a transport that saves time. This means that they will want to put your vehicle on a carrier that will be traveling near or at your pick-up and delivery locations. When it comes to the speed of transport depends on which service you choose. If you choose to go with a normal Open or Enclosed transport service, the transport speed will be fair (about a week to go across the country), but an Expedite service should give you a faster transport overall. Truckers will usually drive 8 hours a day (which is what most people would max out in a day anyways) and rest after that. By the time they get to your delivery location, then it would have been the same amount of time you or anyone else would have spent to make the trip.
