Portland, OR (PRWEB) September 29, 2011
As the summer season comes to an end, the auto transport / vehicle shipping rates drop. As the supply and demand starts to lower for shipping vehicles this time of year the rates start to drop. The time to ship a car couldn’t be better. Many Americans have found that the great deals that they can find on Cars, Trucks, and Suvs aren’t always right next door so the lower rates to ship vehicles all over the country will certainly help the overall cost of buying a car not located in their city of residence.
According to Corporate Auto Transport, rates having been dropping all over the country. This is very good news for the local consumer and dealerships looking to keep some money in their pockets when shipping vehicles. Shippers will see more rate decreases through the Fall and Winter months specifically and compared to the Summer season this is the best time of year to ship a vehicle when looking at the cost comparisons. Most routes see lower rates by about 20-40% off rates from the Summer season. That's a huge difference and should be remembered by auto shippers who may be trying to transport their vehicle on a budget as well.
"In the past I have heard many people say when looking at cars on the internet, if only that vehicle were closer I would buy it. Well, you can buy it. Then ship it!" Says Paul R., a Customer Service Representative at Corporate Auto Transport.
Consumers have always seemed scared away from purchasing automobiles from a far or taking their vehicle with them when they move across state lines because they think they will have to drive the car possibly thousands of miles or rent a trailer to tow it home which takes much time effort and cost. With the convenience of the internet marketplace today, it is easier and cheaper than ever to ship a vehicle. Consumers can put valuable time to other uses with this option as well. Many people think that Auto transport is only for the big car dealerships and major corporations. That couldn’t be more untrue. With the spread of the internet people are realizing at a fast pace that local car buying/selling is not always the way to go especially if you are looking for that rare dream car you have always wanted or a better deal than a local dealer can provide etc.
With Ebay and all the other independent car auction sites such as Manheim Auto Auction, Copart Auto Auction, Capital Auto Auction, or iBid auto auction, individual private party consumers are shipping more cars today than dealerships it seems too. Excellent Auto Transport companies like Corporate Auto Transport are making this simple and smooth to execute too. With so many people buying cars and shipping cars for profit its becoming a real business and a profitable one. Others who are transporting their every day vehicles because they are moving long distance are also seeing the advantage of keeping their vehicles they have owned and relied upon for years as well. No matter what the situation auto transport is a very reliable and cost effective way of life now. We can now really take advantage of the lower vehicle shipping rates this season to keep costs to a minimum when moving or purchasing automobiles out of state.
