How Much Does it Cost to Ship a Car From and To Illinois

The cost of each transportation service really depends on the request and the type of the vehicle as well as the total distance travelled. There are state specific factors which also play a role in the final cost of your order, mainly:

  • Winter road conditions;
  • Port accessibility;
  • Toll pass system requirements;
  • Final destination;
  • Requirement for inner city pick-up or delivery.

As Chicago is one of the most densely populated cities in the US, entering and maneuvering it with a large transport vehicle carrier is not always possible. Carrier companies in that area may refuse to enter depending on the time of year, since winters in Illinois tend to be quite frigid and cold.
