That title is a mouthful!
But seriously, when you’re looking to ship this particular version of the Chevy Silverado 3500HD, you might run into a few problems right off the bat, especially if you’re looking for car shipping services on a budget. The trucks in the 3500HD series are huge, make no mistake about that, and the larger the vehicle is, the more expensive it’ll be to ship it. The Crew Cab Long Bed has a five-seat cab and an 8-ft bed, making it one of the longest and heaviest 3500′s on the market – you should expect oversize vehicle shipping fees to be anywhere from $250-$400 more, depending on the company – and that’s an average.

Are you looking to ship your vehicle to Birmingham, Alabama? Birmingham is one of those cities that everyone knows about, and while it’s not the most popular automobile transport destination it does lie along several major interstates that auto shippers like to travel on. During the summer months you’ll probably see higher prices, mainly because demand for auto transport services is higher in the summer months and there aren’t as many trucks to go around. In the winter months you may be able to secure some sweet deals when shipping to or from Birmingham, especially if you’re shipping to the city from a northern Great Lakes-area city or from New England.
Birmingham may not be the most popular snowbird destination during the winter months, but it is on the way to cities like New Orleans, Louisiana and Jackson, Mississippi (among others), and as auto shippers coming south to those cities will most likely be passing through Birmingham, it’s a great way to find cheap auto shipping services. You can read more about the city by visiting our Birmingham, Alabama auto shipping page.

The car shipping industry is an industry that is best approached with a clear mind.

You should gather up multiple quotes from various shipping companies, in order to compare prices and see which one is the “perfect” shipper for you. You can fill out our free online quote form to the left to get ten free quotes from reputable and reliable shippers.

Great Falls is a city in Montana, though since Montana is so rural it’s not like it’s a huge city or anything. Montana really isn’t a state that auto shippers like to travel to, which can make it difficult to find a carrier to move your vehicle quickly…or cheaply. During the winter months it’s even harder, due to the inclement weather, so if you’re shipping to Great Falls your best bet would be to ship in the late spring/early summer months to capitalize on the high number of carriers that are active at that time. You should probably fill out our free quote form to the left and check out our Great Falls, Montana page to read more about the city and what you can do to prep for your car transport.

Some may be too low, others too high; we recommend getting as many free quotes as possible, in order to find the absolute best price to ship your car.

The second largest city in the state of New York, Buffalo is probably one of the least popular auto transport destinations in the entire state – it’s just too damn hard to get to or from for car shipping carriers. It’s name originates not from the animal, like many people think, but actually from a French phrase which sounds an awful lot like the word buffalo. During the winter the city’s constantly buried under snow, and auto shippers often have to re-route during the depths because of continual storms, snow and ice in the area. You can read more about this chilly city by visiting our Auto Shipping to Buffalo page, and you can get free quotes to ship your vehicle to or from the city by filling out our free online car shipping quote request form.

Arkansas is perhaps not the most popular auto transport state, but it’s also not the hardest to ship in and out of. Going through it can be tough, considering how diverse the geography of the state is, but on the whole it won’t be too difficult if you’re shipping out of a larger city, such as Little Rock. Seasonal shipping isn’t too difficult either, as it doesn’t get wicked hot (like in Arizona) and snow tends to stay away from the state, on the whole (unlike North Dakota). Thunderstorms are probably the worst type of weather the state will see, on average, and you can read more about Arkansas by visiting our Arkansas Car Shipping page, and you can get free auto transport quotes to ship to or from the state by filling out our free online quote form in the left sidebar.

As a mid-size crossover SUV, the Dodge Journey enjoys the best of both worlds; it’s built like a sport utility vehicle and can haul up to seven people plus cargo, or you can haul even more cargo by taking out the optional third-row seating (like a minivan). However, it gets the gas mileage and has the comfort of a sedan, which really does make it a great cross between the two. Typically, when it comes to car shipping quotes for the Journey, you may end up paying a small oversize vehicle shipping fee – but not every company will assess one for the Journey, because it’s not much bigger than a small SUV, which shouldn’t come with any type of oversize fee. We recommend speaking to your car transport agent after you fill out our free online quote request form about all this, and you can also read more about shipping the Dodge Journey by visiting our Auto Transport Dodge Journey page.

Located near the confluence of the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers, Saint Louis (St. Louis) is one of the largest cities in the state of Missouri and a major economic powerhouse in the region. Founded as a trading post in 1763, its location at the intersection of two major waterways (in a time before locomotives or automobiles) helped the city to expand quite rapidly. Today, auto transport to or from St. Louis is usually pretty easy to find, due to its very nature as a city. Its location, the numerous ways in and out of the city, and its nice weather through most of the year make it a great area for car shippers to move to, from and through.
