Frequently Asked Questions
There are many reasons why you might hire a shipping company to move your vehicle, including if:
When shipping your vehicle, it is always best to work with professionals. A quick Internet search will reveal dozens of professional auto transport companies ready to help you ship your car. They will work with vehicle shippers on your behalf to negotiate delivery of your car within your timeframe and within budget.
The cost of shipping your vehicle will depend on several factors, including what type of shipping you prefer, and what delivery system you choose. It is always best to get quotes from several different companies before making a final decision.
Your shipping options include open-carrier shipping or enclosed shipping. With open-carrier shipping your vehicle will be hauled on an open trailer, meaning it will be exposed to weather elements and road conditions during transport. Your car will also be shipped with other vehicles on the same general route as yours. These transports are similar to the trailers you see on the highway carrying cars from the manufacturer to the dealer. This is the least expensive option for shipping your car and has a good track record for safety. Enclosed shipping means your vehicle will be carried in an enclosed trailer, protecting it from outdoor elements. Generally, enclosed shipping means only your car will be carried in the trailer, offering you more flexibility in scheduling but increasing the expense.
There are three types of delivery systems to choose from, but not all transport companies will offer all of them. Door to door: Your car will be picked up and loaded at your location and delivered and unloaded at your new location. This is the most convenient option, but also the most expensive. Terminal to Terminal: If you choose this option, you will need to delivery your car to the company’s terminal where it will be loaded onto a trailer and transported. It will be delivered to the closest terminal to your new location, where you must arrange to pick it up. This will obviously involve more planning and effort on your part, but it can significantly keep the costs down. Door to Terminal/Terminal to Door: A third option is a combination of the previous two. A driver from your auto transport company will pick up the car from your current location and drive it to the company’s closest terminal. It will be delivered to a terminal near your new location, where another driver will delivery it to its final destination. This is a good option if you live in an area that provides limited access to large trucks.
Most vehicle deliveries take place without any incidents. Your car should be delivered to you in the same condition in which it was picked up. If not, you will need to settle damages with your auto transport company.
All transport services are required by law to carry minimum liability coverage for the vehicles they are shipping. If you do not feel this is enough to cover the value of your car, you may be able to purchase additional insurance from your transport company. You should also check with your personal policy to see if your vehicle is covered in transport situations.
