Auto Transport.

Shipping of vehicles is expensive and all care and caution must be exercised so that you select one of the most reliable and professional auto moving companies for the safety and security of your vehicles. There are many factors which are to be considered when you are getting into an agreement with the transporting company. More than these, you need to be aware of the many issues which are involved with moving a car from one city to another. This auto shipping guide is aimed at imparting information and education to you, so that you can take informed decisions when it comes to moving your vehicles.

One of the critical issues in moving automobiles is planning, as with any relocation. You need to plan ahead for your car pick up so that the entire process can take place without a hitch. Two weeks is considered to be the right time when you can arrange for your vehicles to be picked up, especially if you are planning to relocate long-distance. One of the most important points to remember is that pick up time and delivery time are mostly not guaranteed – so you need to give the company adequate to plan their activities also. Some companies can arrange for ‘immediate’ pick up at an additional fee.

Regarding the pick up and drop-off points of your vehicles, you have two options to choose from. You can opt for door-to-door pick up and deliver. This means that your car will be picked up from your door step and delivered also at your new destination at your door. Though extremely convenient, this service costs additional fees. If you live in an area which has narrow roads, you might be asked to bring your car to a nearby terminal. The other option is terminal-to-terminal pick up and delivery. This means that you will have to drop off your car at the carrier’s terminal, located closest to your place of residence. The car will similarly be delivered at the terminal center of your new destination from where you pick up your car. This is a very convenient option if you have just one vehicle to be picked up.

Regarding the time taken for car transportation from one city to another, it is extremely difficult to accurately schedule the actual travel time – but it should be anywhere within 1 to 5 days depending on weather and road conditions. If you book your car transportation well in advance, you will be notified by the auto shipping company, as the date if your actual moving gets closer. An important point to remember is that your car will be shipped along with other people’s cars. So it could well be that your car is picked-up first and dropped off last.

The other point to remember is that no household goods are allowed to be kept inside the car while it is being transshipped. Auto shipping companies are prohibited by law not to transport vehicles with domestic goods in it. If caught doing so, the company could be fined heavily or even have to serve a prison sentence. This is considered to be a serious offence. Also, in the event of an unfortunate accident during transit, the domestic goods left in the car will not be covered for damages or loss.
