How much do car haulers charge per car?

When it comes to car transportation, a number of different factors influence the cost. From mileage to size and weight to route choice to time of the year. But you’re probably looking for a rough estimate, right? On average, how much do car haulers charge per car?

Here’s what we can derive from our internal data on winning bids:
