What should I look for in price?
Cheaper auto transport is not always better. Cheap definitely sounds better, but usually the quality of service you recieve is not the best. If you want the cheapest possible rate, prepare yourself for long waits until someone will pick your car up.
How far ahead should I schedule my pickup?
Auto transport companies require 1-7 days notice so they can schedule you on the next available truck. The industry is route-based and it is difficult to find a truck on short-notice. If an immediate pickup is necessary, the transport brokerage can help you. Your best bet is to make sure the auto transport company has plenty of notice.
How long will my car transport take?
This industry is route-based and time-frames will vary on which route it is, what time of the year it is, and the weather. North to south may take 3-4 days while coast to coast transport might take 7-14 days.
Can I get a guaranteed shipping date?
Be aware of companies that give you a guaranteed pickup or delivery date. There are too many things that cannot be controlled…Weather, Construction, etc. Look for companies that will give you a windows of 2-3 days. While this may not be ideal, it is the most realistic.
Can I put things in my vehicle during shipping?
Auto carriers aren’t licensed to ship household goods because there’s no place to put it! Companies that use enclosed trucks are licensed to do that, but don’t pack your auto full of boxes if it’s going onto an open truck…it’s illegal.
