When it comes to move your ride from your current city or province to different one, you need to take into consideration the car shipping expenses that might be required to complete the process.

Expenses to consider if you drive your ride


The first expense and the most considerable one is the gas, since it varies from province to province and from vehicle to vehicle; this might affect your budget in a considerable way..

As a second expense we consider the meals of the day which are at least 3, but also every time you stop for gas at a gas station there is a convenience store so adding a can of soda, chips and snacks increases your expenses.

Hotels is the next expense that will affect your budget. It depends on what type of hotels you want to spend the night in, it is really important that you feel rested before you drive your vehicle so you don’t cause any car accidents on the road, never underestimate your hours of sleep. This might save your life.

In case of a flat tire or any other car breakdown you need to carry some extra cash for these types of expenses, this will also affect the amount of time it will take you to get from a place 
to another.

Also you must consider the depreciation on the vehicle while if you're going to drive it all the way to your new location, since you are adding extra mileage to the vehicle and if you were planning to sell the unit this might affect the price that you were looking to obtain when you sell it.


Weather conditions - Big factor to ship your ride 

Also you need to be aware of the weather conditions in the areas where you are going to drive the vehicle, if the weather is too bad you have to be prepared with supplies because sometimes highways are closed or roads are slippery so you have to be careful with the way you drive.

These are some of the things that need to be considered before driving a car. This is why at SHIP MY RIDE recommends to ship a vehicle in a car carrier instead of driving. We have expert drivers who are aware of everything that we have mentioned on this article.

Winter weather - Wind Chill

ShipMyRide's team put together some information that can be very important for you this winter season. Looking at the temperature on our smart phones or on TV is one thing but the actual feeling on our skin and body on the outside can tell a different story. 
Besides the temperature you need to check the Wind Chill. The wind chill is how cold it actually feels on your skin when the cold wind is added to the low temperatures. On your mobile apps, or weather websites, they may refer to it as the "feels-like" temperature.
This phenomenon is caused because the wind actually strips away the thin layer of warm air above our skin. The stronger the wind, will result on a greater heat lost from our body, and the colder the sensation on our skin. When the winds are weaker or lighter, the temperature sensation will feel closer to the actual air temperature on our skin.
