Rhode Island, a U.S. state in New England, is known for sandy shores and seaside Colonial towns. It’s home to several large cities, including Newport, which is famed for sailing and Gilded Age mansions, such as The Breakers. Providence, its capital, is home to Brown University, green Roger Williams Park, landscaped Waterplace Park and Riverwalk, with the famed WaterFire art installation. Rhode Island is bordered by Connecticut to the west, Massachusetts to the north and east, and the Atlantic Ocean to the south via Rhode Island Sound and Block Island Sound. It also shares a small maritime border with New York.

Auto transport to and from Rhode Island is a daily routine at Nationwide United. From the thousands vehicles we’ve shipped, many route through “The Ocean State”. We transit on any of the highways that cover the state as well as the spiderweb of freeways that criss-cross the metropolitan areas of Rhode Island on a weekly basis.

How much does it cost to ship a vehicle to/from Rhode Island?

There are several factors that can affect the cost of shipping a vehicle to/from Rhode Island, such as the distance, type of vehicle, mode of transportation, shipping method, and any additional services required. The final cost for relocating an auto depends on a combination of these factors:

Factor 1: Distance of Shipment
The distance of the shipment is one of the most significant factors that will determine the cost of car shipping. Longer distances will typically cost more than shorter ones. The farther the distance, the more fuel and labor will be required, and the higher the cost will be.

Factor 2: Type of Vehicle
The type of vehicle you’re shipping will also affect the cost. Larger vehicles, such as SUVs and trucks, will cost more to ship than smaller cars. This is because they take up more space on a transport truck, and require more fuel and labor to move. 

Factor 3: Shipping Method
The shipping method you choose will also affect the cost of car shipping. Two methods for shipping a car are open transport and enclosed transport. Open transport, where the vehicle is shipped on an open trailer with other vehicles, is the most affordable option. Enclosed transport, where the vehicle is shipped in a closed container, is more expensive but offers greater protection for the vehicle.

Factor 4: Seasonality
The season of the year can also affect the cost of car shipping. During the peak summer months, demand for car shipping is typically higher which can drive up prices. On the other hand, during the off-season, there may be less demand and therefore lower prices. Additionally, inclement weather during certain seasons, such as heavy snow during winter, can cause delays and increase costs.

Tips for Vehicle Transport in Rhode Island

If you have plans to transport your vehicle when you relocate or visit Rhode Island, here are few things to keep in mind.

  • Book as far ahead as possible: The more in advance you can book your transport, the better chance you will have of accommodating moving schedule. Moreover, the more lead time you have in book car shipping, the more time you have to prepare other arrangements associated with your move.
  • Determine the type of service you’ll need: One of the main decisions you’ll make when shipping a car to Rhode Island is open or enclosed transport.  80% of Rhode Island vehicle transport are done with open carriers while enclosed trailers are the preferred option for high end, luxury vehicles. 
  • Prepare your car or automobiles for transport: Notably if your vehicle is coming cross-country, prep your car for transport by checking breaks, including emergency breaks, battery, ignition, tires and fluids. Minor leaks can cause major problems, especially if vehicle is travelling hundreds of miles.
