      Fresno is an ideal city for young families because of its top-rated public schools, numerous parks and year-round sunshine. Since the average household in Fresno has two cars, people relocating to the city often benefit from auto hauling services, especially if they previously lived on the East Coast or in the Midwest.

      Car shipping cost in Fresno

      The cost of Fresno auto transport varies based on a variety of factors, but shipping a car to or from Fresno typically ranges from $600 to $1,075 per vehicle. Car shipping companies in California set their rates based on vehicle type, carrier type and delivery distance. Prices noted below are for a drivable sedan delivered in an open carrier reserved 45 days in advance.

      Some auto transport companies offer special discounts for students and veterans, so ask companies about any available savings.

      Other cost factors

      Although distance is the primary factor when pricing auto transport, there are a few other things to consider.

      • Transporting an inoperable sedan typically costs more than transporting a driveable vehicle.
      • Specialty vehicles, like luxury cars, motorcycles or RVs, have higher shipping costs than most small cars.
      • Some auto transport companies offer expedited shipping, which costs more but gives you quick, guaranteed delivery in as few as 24 hours.
      • Additional insurance coverage increases transit costs.
      • Some companies authorize their customers to pack personal belongings inside vehicles. However, a small fee is typically added to shipping to compensate for the extra weight.

      How to choose an auto shipping company in Fresno

      To get an accurate quote for services, you’ll need to provide:

      • The size and weight of your vehicle
      • The locations of the drop-off and delivery
      • Your preference between an open or enclosed carrier
      • Your preference between door-to-door shipping or terminal-to-terminal shipping

      Not all auto transport companies offer the same services, so select a company that can accommodate your needs. These services include moving inoperable vehicles, exotic cars or oversized vehicles, including RVs.

      Take time to gather quotes, read customer reviews and evaluate company policies on vehicle damage and packing personal property inside your car. Also, check whether the company offers vehicle tracking and extra safety protections in its carriers, such as hydraulic lifts.

      Avoiding auto transport scams

      When looking for a Fresno auto transport service for state-to-state service, it’s crucial to choose a licensed, bonded and insured company registered with the United States Department of Transportation. Also, make sure the company is registered as a transportation carrier with the California Public Utilities Commission no matter where you're shipping.

      What to do before shipping your car in Fresno

      Once you’ve hired a California car hauler and set up an appointment, there are several things you need to do to prepare your vehicle for transport:

      1. Clean the interior and exterior of the vehicle, then inspect the entire car for damage. Take pictures and draft a written report of any dings, dents or scratches the vehicle already has.
      2. Check the tire pressure and ensure there aren’t any leaks coming from the tires.
      3. Remove custom parts and accessories to prevent damage during transit.
      4. Disable the car alarm.
      5. Only leave about a quarter tank of gas in your car. Excess gas can affect the weight on the carrier, and transporters only need a small amount of gas to load and unload your vehicle.
