How To Ship Your American
Are you looking to ship home an American car? Look no further than our shipping company. The shipping industry has very reliable companies and unprofessional dealers in equal measure. Dealing with us, however, guarantees service that is worth the price paid.
Our company offers two categories of shipment, national and international. National shipment is the moving or vehicles from state to state or locally, while international shipment involves moving to or from overseas locations. We have some of the market’s best rates for either option, whatever the customer needs.
Our biggest offering, though, is not the shipping per se, but the catering to the needs of the customer. We are an immensely experienced company and have handled thousands of shipments over the years. Our staff understands what it takes to consistently deliver year in year out. Even then, whenever we receive an order, we treat it like the unique business experience it is. We do not assume anything about clients and are always on hand to assist and answer any questions that might arise before, during and after the shipping process. We understand that every client is special. It is in meeting these special needs that we have got to the top of the game.
In terms of pickup and delivery, the client will no doubt be impressed with the options we have for them. We offer both door to door and terminal based pickup and delivery services. Our favorite is door to door, where the vehicle to be transported is picked up at one’s home or office, and shipped directly to their new base, even in cases where the new location is overseas. However, we also recognize that in some instances, this might not be practical or even necessary.
Some neighborhoods, for instance, do not have access ways large enough for carriers to pass through in order to pick up the vehicle at home. With that in mind, we also offer terminal to terminal pick-up and delivery. This allows the client to drop off their vehicle, and pick it up at the nearest terminal to their destination. Terminal based pickup and delivery is also less expensive, which offers the clients flexibility in terms of prices.
Speaking of flexibility, we also offer our clients the choice between two types of shipping carriers, open and enclosed. Open carriers are just as the name suggests, open to the elements, while closed carriers are normally the typical container type carriers. One might think open carriers are unsafe, but they offer almost the same level of quality and are used by up to 97 percent of carriers in the industry.Dealerships, for instance, might prefer the open carriers for their ability to ferry more vehicles at once. Most of the time, for the closed carriers the number of vehicles transported is minimal, sometimes just the single one.
Whether interstate or domestic auto transport, choosing to ship with us is a decision customers never regret. From our quality and care on the road, to our diligent, timely and useful communication throughout the process, the customer will always leave satisfied.
