Throughout the year changes occur with demand which has a big effect on the pricing in the industry.  For the last few months there has been a large surplus of cars going from the east coast to California and Arizona.  The strange thing isn’t the demand to ship a car west, it is that there are hardly any people who want to transport east.  What is happening is the shady companies are taking advantage of this buy continuing to quote low prices to the west coast and charge a deposit and never load the cars.  However anything going east is cheaper than normal because our trucks need to get to that coast where the premium rates are.  As always, we recommend you do your homework when shipping a car and check out our car shipping tips there are many reputable companies but unfortunately people tend to be excited by the cheap prices of the scam companies.
