To understand why you’ll be charged more for this type of service, it helps to understand how the vehicle transport process works. Normally auto transport services transport multiple vehicles at the same time. To do this, the transport service load several cars on the same trailer and create routes that pick up and deliver vehicles in close proximity to each other. This is done in order to cut costs for both the transport service and the costumer.
When you hire the services of a transport company
, they will compare routes and prices between trucking companies to find the right match for you. This process takes time, so most companies will require a two-week lead time to arrange scheduling. Due to the fact that the routes are not direct, and involve pickup and delivery of vehicles in different locations, the company will usually require some flexibility in scheduling. Rather than giving you an exact delivery date, they will usually promise delivery within a certain time frame.
