Why Are Car Moving Rates Higher in Upstate New York?
There are several factors that contribute to the higher car moving rates in Upstate New York.
The first factor is gas prices. The state of New York has high taxes on fuel. And in fact, New York City has some of the highest in all of the United States. At the time of this writing, the statewide average cost for a gallon of regular unleaded was just under $3.00.
Secondly, there's a higher cost to shipping a car because it requires more effort than any other item that may travel within NYC or New York State. To help avoid confusion or surprises, getting a free estimate first is always a wise decision. You'll never have any surprises when you deal with A1 Auto Transport.
Can I Get a Flat Rate Price on Car Shipping?
The prices vary based on the distance between pickup and drop-off locations and the number of items shipped per vehicle load. Our moving companies offer competitive rates for transporting cars locally and for long distances across the country.
You should have a proper vehicle title and vehicle registration. We fill out the application for a vehicle, vehicle certificates, vehicle insurance cards, and deferment for vehicles.
Unless we have specific information on where your car is going to or where it's coming from, it's impossible to give a flat rate. Contact us now for an estimate of how much it will cost to transport your vehicle. That way, you won't have any surprises.

Answers to Your Car Moving Questions
The hardest thing for people researching car moving companies to understand is that the prices they are getting are not hard and fast gaurantees, but rather ESTIMATES of what one company thinks it will take to get a vehicle moved promptly versus another company's opinion of what it will take. Don't be fooled, there are not carriers committed to take your vehicle at these quoted prices, the company you choose will still have to get to work getting a carrier to commit to move it at the price they quote you.
Your total price breaks down into two parts, the broker's fee (or 'deposit' as everyone calls it) and the carriers fee (your COD amount) Make no mistake about this, EVERYONE YOU ARE GETTING SALES CALLS FROM IS GOING TO BROKER YOUR MOVE. In this industry, there are brokers who try to fool you into thinking that they are the actual carriers and there are an equal amount of carriers who sell themselves on the fact that they have a truck or two but are not being honest about the fact that they broker out 90% of the orders they book. Here is a quick easy way to tell, if a company takes an up front fee, whether they call it a deposit or any other name, they are a broker. Carriers do not take any payment until the vehicle is delivered.
In our opinion, you are crazy to do so. Have you ever been paid up front for the work that you perform for your employer? Why would you pay a fee up front when there are reliable and trustworthy companies like ours that won't ask for it until we provide you with your carriers details?
The average transit time from pick up to delivery on any vehicle going coast to coast will be between one and two weeks. From there you can figure your transit time based on how far your vehicle is traveling, i.e. from either coast to the Midwest might average 3-7 days.
