If you’re moving a distance greater than 200 miles, it may be more cost-effective to hire a car transport company to do the job. Your car would be safely transported to where ever you may need it. Car transport services offer many possibilities for people that are in the process of moving in order to best fit their needs and help out in the process. Many times customers that are moving do not have a set place in their destination yet and need cars transported to storage facilities, dealers, commercial addresses or anywhere else. Car transport not only offers a personal door-to-door service, but also provides terminal-to-terminal or door-to-terminal services if need. Terminal fees may apply, however it provides a piece of mind for you in case you’re stressing for a delivery location.
Some moving companies offer car transport services as well, however it is important to inquire how your car will be transported as most cases car is not mounted on a trailer, it is hooked on the back of your moving truck. Although this will get the job done and all your belongings will be together, this will wear and tear your tires rapidly and easily and does not offer the proper protection for your vehicle. Remember, a moving company is generally specialized in moving household goods; a car transport company specializes in car transport services.
To help avoid delays in schedule it is very important that you provide your schedule’s flexibility during booking process; this will help agents provide your transport accordingly to your time. If you run on a tight schedule it is important you provide first available date for pickup and last available day for pickup. Car transport services although accurate and on time 95% of the time, unfortunately is not a guaranteed service as many things can happen along the way. Keep in mind that carriers not only have you as a customer but have pickups and deliveries along the way. If one customer fails to show up on time or gives driver a hard time with payment or paperwork, this delays the complete schedule, and no matter how hard drivers tries, this will affect your schedule. When tight schedules are on hand, routes are planned with your car as priority; however it is always important you have a backup plan in case a delay may occur.
