Car Shipping Prices

Car shipping prices can vary with different criteria such as size of the vehicle, pickup and delivery location, type of service required (open auto transport vs. enclosed auto transport), special requirements, etc.  N-Motion Auto Transport does a great job of obtaining all information and creating a specialized car transport program to fit the wants and needs of every customer.  Need a monster truck moved from Baltimore, MD to Los Angeles, CA?  Easy!  N-Motion Auto Transport would get the specs of the truck and then match the type of trailer necessary to perfectly cater to the dimensions of the vehicle. 

Each vehicle is properly secured with wheel straps, not chains.  Wheel straps do not put any tension on the body of the vehicle and reduce any chance of damage during the car hauling process.  This is an added perk of using an auto shipping company such as N-Motion Auto Transport and does not inflate the car shipping prices whatsoever. 

Fast, Reliable Car Transport Solutions

Whether you need to move off to college or even want to travel down south for the winter, N-Motion Auto Transport can cater to your every need.  We transport vehicles for a wide variety of clientele, including race teams, professional athletes, college students, snowbirds, and dealerships all over the nation.  Our car shipping prices do not change with different clients because we do not believe in price gouging.  The team at N-Motion Auto Transport gives consumers the easiest and most affordable options available in the automobile transport market.

From Tractors to Supercars, Lamborghini Veneno is the Newest of the Bunch

About 50 years ago, Ferruccio Lamborghini was made famous from his finely built tractors in Italy, but his passion was more for sports cars.  So with this, he turned his sights on building a better, faster car than his rival in Italy, Enzo Ferrari.  He established Automobili Lamborghni in 1963 and it has now grown to be one of the most well-known brands in the automobile world.

Even long after the death of both Enzo and Ferruccio, their brand names continue to thrive and awe the masses.  The corporate rivalry has increased both companies’ sales and has only helped the two brands become more powerful.  At the recent Geneva Auto Show this year, Lamborghini brought out a beast that no one had ever seen before: the extremely exclusive Lamborghini Veneno. 

What many thought would be the fastest car on the market with such a high price tag, ironically it’s not!  This $3.9 million cost of the Veneno nearly tripled the value of the new hyper-hybrid LaFerrari.  Both super cars exceed 350 km/hr but the Lamborghini took the cake with its massive pre-tax sticker price.

Talk about exclusive!  Only 3 Venenos were built and all three were pre-sold.  This is also considered one of the most extreme Lamborghinis in their showroom due to its over-the-top futuristic styling.  With scissor-style doors, large rear spoiler, air scoop mounted on the roof and “shark fin” stabilizer, the Veneno is far more than just a car….it’s a showpiece!

Many people may like it but there are many naysayers that just think it’s too much for them.  Many would rather have the sleeker LaFerrari because it’s a third of the cost and doesn’t look as outrageous. 

In comparison, the LaFerrari combined a gas engine with an electric motor to conservce fuel and and reduce CO2 emissions while the Veneno and its 6.5 liter V12 knows nothing of the sort (what is green?)

2013 Geneva Motor Show Unveils Ferrari’s New Supercar – LaFerrari

Ferrari is always on top in the supercar world and they now have reached out into more of the Formula 1 racing scene in producing a hybrid car that uses less fuel, emits fewer CO2 particles and check this out…it accelerates to 60 mph in less than 3 seconds.

The Ferrari LaFerrari obtains more power under braking or when the motor creates excess power to the battery by which is then transferred to 2 electric engines.  The first one gives a boost to the gas engine and the other one feeds the accessories. 

This supercar has something called the HY-KERS system which stands for hybrid kinetic energy recovery system.  The system runs in conjunction with the engine and never solo, categorizing it as a mild hybrid like the Civic and Malibu. 

The Ferrari LaFerrari has a couple of aliases, the F70 and the F150.  It was initially introduced at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show and then the Frankfurt Auto Show – the world’s 2 biggest automotive showcases.  The 2013 shows were showcasing high-performance, ‘green’, and mainstream cars for world markets.

How does KERS work, you ask?

This kind of technology is all about renewable energy – that in yesterday’s vehicles would be wasted.   So, for instance, the Toyota Prius is a good example of renewable energy because it uses this technology so that the vehicle only runs a mile or so on battery before the gas engine kicks in.  This KERS is additional power on top of the already high powered combustion engine creates (much like a turbocharger but more efficient).

A couple of interesting methods that are used to create this energy are:

  1. The spinning up of a flywheel while braking
  2. Transferring power to supercapacitors

Both of the methods work for about 10 seconds because of two reasons; either all of the storage systems are used up or because the sanctioning body limits the vehicle to a fixed amount of boost per lap.  The system then changes the energy and pushes it to a pair batteries that are bolted to the cars carbon fiber frame.  The first battery feeds the propulsion system and the other diverts power to the cars accessories, i.e. windshield wipers, A/C, audio system, etc.

Environmental Gains

The LaFerrari emits about 330g of CO2/km in the European emissions testing cycle, which is roughly about 10 percent less than other V12 Ferrari’s.  The development team says that this car isn’t exactly an active hybrid like the Prius because that is not the main goal of the vehicle at the moment. 

Cost of the Ferrari LaFerrari

The price is an estimated $1.3 million and there will only be about 499 units made.  The veteran clients of Ferrari get first dibs on the new supercar and get a nice discounted rate of $700k to continue to deliver the brand to enthusiasts instead of speculators. 

Moving Ferrari’s and other supercars is easy with N-Motion Auto Transport’s specialized Ferrari car shipping and enclosed auto transport programs.  Call today for a free car shipping quote and enjoy the ride!

Diesel Dips 4.2cents, hitting $4.088 & Gasoline Declines for Second Straight Week

Looking to be a positive overall outcome, retail diesel fuel prices have dipped for the second straight week from $4.13 per gallon to $4.088. The US Energy Information Administration expects the diesel prices to continue to decline for the next two years, which studies have shown that this will reduce truck fleets annual fuel costs by as much as $5,700 per rig.  This is great news for car carriers and their drivers because it seems that the cost of everything else in steadily increasing, other than their pay checks.

According to the EIA, the 4.2-cent dip in diesel prices last week was less than fuel costs were back in 2012 at this same time.  To ice the cake, prices were actually increasing at this time last year from $4.123 a gallon and up.

Once gas prices hit $4.051 in February of 2012, prices didn’t drop below the $4 mark until the middle of May 2012.  Mid-March of 2013 was the first time since November of 2012 that diesel prices have been cheaper than the prior year.

Not only did diesel prices drop but gasoline prices did as well.  Last week’s fuel prices were $3.759 and have since dropped this week to $3.71 per gallon, much less than last year’s prices at the comparable time.  Car shipping customers and other customers alike will also enjoy the splendors of lowed fuel prices.

US Oil Production Increases, Paving Way to Lower Fuel Costs

Phil Flynn, an analyst of the Price Futures Group in Chicago, states that steady oil markets are putting less pressure on diesel prices at the same time winter demand is easing up on crude oil used in both diesel and heating oil.

US Fuel Prices Finally Dropping in 2013

In the EIA’s short-term oil price report that was released on March 12, retail costs of diesel is anticipated to drop to $3.90 in 2013 from the previous $3.97 in 2012 and will drop even more to $3.80 in 2014.  “U.S. crude oil production exceeded an average level of 7 million barrels per day in November and December 2012, the highest volume since December 1992,” the EIA report said.

It’s a recurring search for new ways and technologies to decrease fuel consumption and increase gas mileage, but after the ten year long search it is finally paying off.

Facts About the Car Shipping Process:

Road trips might be fun every now and then, but what about when there isn’t enough time or it’s just a very long distance? There are many factors that can deter people from driving the long road ahead. With crude oil prices always on the rise, it is getting very costly to drive anywhere these days. Not to mention the cost of lodging, food, and wear/tear on the vehicle all adding up on the bill. Above all, the most important factor to think about when making that road trip would be the safety factors. There are many reckless drivers on the roads and many dangerous routes as well. If the wrong road is chosen somewhere along the way, it might then cause a whole new issue. What if the car breaks down in the middle of nowhere and there is no cell phone signal? These are just a few of the important things to think about before making the trip.

The Brand New 2014 Corvette Stingray Likes to Sing in the Rain

The 2014 Corvette Stingray has yet to be released to the market and we are all sitting in suspense.  Orders are being taken with the ordering guide on Corvette Blogger.  This beastly C7 not only produces a massive fully-upgraded 450 hp and 450 lb-ft of torque, but it has a weather mode too? 

GM had a brilliant idea of incorporating an increased all-weather capability that will immensely increase stability and traction in rainy conditions.  Autoweek noted back in January that the “weather mode” is just one of four driver-selectable settings controlled via the center console.  This mode was created to improve safety in rainy and/or snowy weather conditions. 

Chevrolet explains the weather controls: “In inclement weather, the vehicle senses and adapts to road conditions, distributing appropriate power to the real wheels.  Tailored Traction Control and throttle progression promote more confident driving in rain or snow.”

Now remember, you will not experience all that the Stingray has to offer while in “weather mode.”  The control system reduces specific power in order to retain full stability while driving in external conditions.  This is a safety feature that protects not only the driver but the vehicle as well. 

Some of the other features in the center control panel are as follows:

  • Eco – to reduce engine labor and conserve fuel, ECO MODE maximizes Active Fuel Management to limit power when traveling at cruising speeds.  Fuel economy is automatically optimized until aggressive acceleration is called for.  An Eco index is available.
  • Tour – this vehicle default setting offers adaptable power for everyday driving.  Systems relieve stiffness from shock damping and optimize comfort for long-distance driving.  Gauge cluster configuration displays audio, navigation and phone data. 
  • Sport – Optimized for spirited road driving, steering effort and Magnetic Ride damping are stiffened but tempered.   Performance Traction Management and launch control are enabled, and StabiliTrak Active Handling can be activated for a more stable ride. Gauge cluster configuration features a large analog tachometer for effortless visibility. 
  • Track – Exclusively for track driving, Track mode is designed for legitimate race settings.  Launch control provides maximum off-the-line accelerating.  Steering effort and Magnetic Ride damping adjust to provide maximum responsiveness.  Performance Traction maximum responsiveness.  Performance Traction Management is enabled.  Throttle progressing optimizes for track performance.  Gauge cluster configuration offers a C6.R race-inspired display complete with lap timer.
