Need to get your classic vehicle to a car show out of state? Moving soon and want to take your project car with you? Don’t overwhelm yourself. You should never have to transport your baby with a hassle. Here’s a little guideline to help with a smooth transition.
How do you know you have the right company?
Often times cars can be an owner’s prize possession. Whether it’s a luxury vehicle or a fixer upper, you want your vehicle to make it to its destination safely. There a several different ways to ensure that it does. Choosing the right company with a great reputation is the first step. Be sure to check the company’s safety record and insurance before booking.
Should you ship it open or closed?
Shipping your vehicle reduces the chances of your vehicle being in an accident. You will need to decide whether or not you’d like your vehicle delivered in an open trailer or an enclosed one. An open trailer will often be less expensive but your vehicle maybe subject to any debris that the trailer encounters. An enclosed trailer provides your vehicle with as much protection as possible but tends to cost more.
Door to Door or Terminal to Terminal Service?
Door to door service ensures your vehicle is delivered to your front door unless the truck and trailer are not able to safely drive in and out of your neighborhood. Terminal to terminal allows you to choose a convenient location to have your vehicle delivered, which allows you to pick it up at a time that best suites you.
How soon do you need it and are your dates flexible?
The demand for shipping cars is fairly high. It’s best to order in advance to guarantee a lower shipping price and allows the company enough time to find a carrier to transport your precious cargo. Shipping dates are not guaranteed but are estimated due to unpredictable delays. It’s asked that you are flexible with your schedule unless you are willing to spend extra for expedited shipping. The more money you offer up the more appealing your shipment becomes to a carrier.
