Ford F-150 Auto Shipping
The Ford F-150, originally part of Ford’s overall F-Series line of trucks (and probably still grouped in with them in the minds of most consumers), are actually their own specific lineup now, and have been for the past few years. The F-150 lineup is considerably smaller than the F-250 and above, which are now grouped into Ford’s Super Duty lineup of trucks. Regardless, the F-150 comes in a number of different packages depending on the consumer, and some (like the Super Duty) can build their F-150 from the ground up, provided they have the cash to do so. The most basic retail F-150 currently sells for $22,990 MSRP, with the highest-end package available reaching $51,995. Depending on which specific cab it has, the F-150 can seat 3-6 people comfortably and features 278-584 ft-lbs of torque and 302-411 horsepower, again depending on the model. Usually, the higher the torque, number of people, horsepower, and options you include, the more the vehicle is going to cost, so be sure to think about that when you’re shopping around for an F-150.
The Ford F-150 has been heavily marketed as being better than the other two main trucks in its class: the Chevrolet Silverado and the Toyota Tundra. Featuring more max towing capabilities than both, as well as the basic Ram 1500, it’s definitely a workhorse meant for lighter types of hauling – though it can haul a lot. With the torque and horsepower it provides, it can be a lot of different things for a lot of different people, depending on how they use the truck. Some people use it to drive to and from work; others use it around the farm to move things around. Regardless, there’s an F-150 out there for you.
The largest part about arranging auto transportation for an F-150 is the size of it. Now, the smaller models shouldn’t be a problem; some of them can even fit on a standard auto carrier. The problem really lies in the larger F-150 models, especially huge customized ones that are high off the ground or really heavy. Auto transporters base their prices primarily on the size and weight of the vehicle being shipped and where it’s coming from and going to. If you’re shipping a regular F-150 from Chicago to Los Angeles, you shouldn’t run into too many problems in terms of the price. But the larger the vehicle, the more oversize/overweight fees you may be expected to pay. This is standard – this isn’t something that fly-by-night auto shipping companies try to pull over on unsuspecting customers. Rather, it’s a basic part of the industry, and the further you have to go, the more fuel you have to pay – same thing for vehicle weight, as it slows the transporter down. So be sure to have all the pertinent details of your F-150 handy, especially the specific model, any features that add weight or bulk it up, and have the length, height and weight measurements at your fingertips when trying to find a good auto shipping quote.
