When your car is moved to another state the auto transport company has to remember certain things. The first and most important is size. Most sedans and small SUVs are very easy to move making them much cheaper. When you have non factory modifications like lift kits, large hitches or lowered car it is very difficult to transport the car. Another important thing to remember while transporting your car is the route that auto moving company is taking. Many customers can benefit when vehicle transporters use California to Florida route because they have to pay lower price for transportation. When a customer wants to move his vehicle to areas like Midwest and North West it becomes very harder because transporters do not want to move in less desirable areas. Another costly move is the inoperable vehicle. Transporter has to move the car into the transport by himself. It becomes really very difficult for the transporter to move the vehicle onto the transport so generally most of the carriers refuse to move a car that does not run.
