Dallas is one of the main points for transportation in Texas, one of the advantages is that it has the ports near and most routes that go cross country pass through this point, so driver availability is always high. Because of this, any driver passing by to Los Angeles will stop and load at Dallas. This also helps on the way back, shipping from L.A. to Florida for example, most drivers pass by Dallas to drop off and keep going through their way.
Texas has a strategic location in the map, where it enjoys not only of great weather and land conditions, but it also borders with Mexico for great transport possibilities and limits with a great distance of water of the Gulf, allowing many ports of entry for overseas car transportation. Many people ship overseas into Texas and car industries ship to Texas to ship overseas to other countries. This has made Texas a major point of entry and exit for the country. Car Transport benefits greatly from this factor as major movement happens with these scenarios.
One of Texas great advantages for its variety of industries is its weather. The state lies within the southern line of states in the country and enjoys of great weather conditions throughout the year. Although snowfall is reported in the northern part of the state, snowfalls aren’t as bad as northern states and passage through the state is still possible to reach the west or east coast if necessary, for this reason routes like CA –FL or TX-FL and all the cities in between are very common all year long.
To have an idea of what it will cost to ship a car in Texas you not only have to take in account the rate per mile and how available a route is. Gas prices and weather conditions affect prices greatly as road conditions change and drivers are risking too much on the roads. However, the most important thing to keep in mind is that rates per mile are set with regular mid-size sedans and start from there. Shipping a 4 door sedan is not the same as shipping a 4 door SUV. Weights are different and SUV’s occupy more space on a carrier, therefore less room to take more cars. Prices must compensate for that one less car, therefore prices to ship the SUV will be higher.
