Some Facts About Transporting Pickup Trucks

How to ship a pickup truck

This blog is for you if you are looking to transport a pick-up truck. Pickup trucks are either easy to transport or difficult depending on the type of pickup truck being transported. Pickup trucks come in a variety of sizes and shapes. When calculating an auto transport quote, pickup trucks are more important than other vehicles because the submodels and models you have will be used to calculate your specific price. Some pickup trucks, such as the Ford Ranger, are smaller than others, such as the Chevrolet Silverado3500. There is a big difference in shipping a 3500 or a small Ranger. The largest difference is the size. The 3500 is much larger and heavier than the Ranger. While the Ranger can get away with only a small oversize shipping charge (if any), the 3500 may have to pay overweight fees exceeding $300 depending on how it has been modified.

As you can see, this is a huge discrepancy. There are many other pickup trucks that cost different amounts. We recommend speaking to a representative to find out what kind of pickup truck and which types of auto transport trucks you can use. Most pickup trucks can fit in an enclosed or open-top auto transport vehicle. However, some trucks may not be able to fit on these carriers and will need flatbed shipping services to transport them. Flatbed transport is more expensive than standard transport. For some pickup trucks, however, it's the only choice.
