shipping cars is so expensive because of high cost of doing business & time wasted making individual stops.

It is not unusual for a driver to take a three hours or more to load and unload truck load of cars. Part of reason why it takes close to 10 days to transport a car coast-to-coast is because about 2 days are needed  just to load and several days to unload locally. In addition loading and unloading increase the chance of damaging a vehicle. Scheduling and route planning is also further complicated with higher quantity of drops.[/av_textblock] [av_image src=’https://www.rcgauto.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/8-car-hauler-1030×323.jpg’ attachment=’4670′ attachment_size=” align=’center’ styling=” hover=” link=” target=” caption=’yes’ font_size=” appearance=” overlay_opacity=’0.4′ overlay_color=’#000000′ overlay_text_color=’#ffffff’ animation=’no-animation’ custom_class=” admin_preview_bg=”] It can take over three hours to load and unload the trailer on a typical car hauler[/av_image] [av_textblock size=” font_color=” color=” av-desktop-hide=” av-medium-hide=” av-small-hide=” av-mini-hide=” av-medium-font-size=” av-small-font-size=” av-mini-font-size=”] When looking to have several vehicles transported at the same time you need to consider several factor. To most significant savings come when shipping larger quantity of cars up to maximum of 11. The size of the vehicles makes a difference – so it is best to mix Sedans with SUVs, Minivans and Pickups
