Q: "How much will the transport of my vehicle cost?"
A: In general,
cost to transport vehicles is mainly based on final destination.
Also, larger and heavier vehicles will be slightly more expensive
to transport, as would special requests, such as terminal drop-offs.
For example, transport of a passenger vehicle to Florida would
cost approximately XXXX dollars, while transport to California
would cost YYYY dollars. Transport costs of the same vehicle
within Massachusetts would range from AAAA to BBBB, while transport
to adjoining states would cost approximately CCCC. Please call,
