Many dealerships, auctions, collectors and individuals use open car shipping for shipping their car because it really is a great option. We can carry more cars at ones, which can have a big impact on the cost of car shipping compared to that of enclosed auto transport.
The normal time for delivery of your vehicle is approximately anywhere from the same day to 14 days. During this time, all cars are loaded on a car shipping truck. Below, are some basic ideas to help understand basic times for delivery, these times are estimated and should not be considered as guaranteed.
Our door-to-door service in the car transport industry means the truck driver will get as close to your door as he can legally and safely. Many cities have restrictions on large trucks that prohibit them from driving into some residential areas. Car shipping trucks are massive and need lots of space to maneuver and turn around. If your home is restricted by narrow streets, low-hanging trees, speed bumps or tight turns, the driver may ask you to meet the truck at a different destination. If you are ready to go, please fill out our transport quote form to receive a quote for shipping your car.
The US Department of shipping prohibits the carrying of personal items on a truck licensed only for carrying automobiles. By violating this federal law, the auto transport company shipping your vehicle can be fined up to $10,000. All personal belongings that are left inside the vehicle will not be insured and no company is responsible for missing or damaged items. If you need to pack some belongings in your vehicle, please contact us prior to pickup.
The auto transport company that’s transporting your vehicle will provide you with insurance. This insurance covers most damages caused by accidents while the vehicle is being loaded, major changes in the vehicle’s condition, and unforeseeable damage that is a result of mishandling by the carrier. We recommend that you contact your insurance company and let them know you are shipping your car or other vehicle.
We accept these forms of payment; Cash, cahier check, money orders, visa and master cards American Express, discover and PayPal will be accepted. No personal checks and no business checks will be accepted. Payment must be arranged prior to pick up.
Once your vehicle is scheduled for pickup we will contact you with the information needed to contact the driver and dispatch office.
Enclosed Carrier: This is auto shipping that protects your vehicle from the elements. Going Enclosed can protect your vehicle from weather, rocks and theft. In most cases enclosed auto carriers will cost double of what it would cost to ship your car on an open carrier. But, these drivers have more experience with high-end vehicles. Enclosed shipping gives you more of a personable touch when shipping your car.
