Shipping to Anniston
When you have your car booked to ship to Anniston, you need to take care of a few things to make sure it is ready to be loaded onto the truck on shipping day. Follow these tips from A-1 Auto Transport to have your car ready to go on time:
- Verify the insurance coverage and make sure to get a copy of it before the car is picked up. You will also want to have copies of all other paperwork that pertains to the car shipment.
- Wash the car and be sure to remove all dirt including from underneath the car and around the tires.
- Clean the inside and take out all personal items.
- Check to make sure the gas is no higher than a quarter tank. Auto transport pricing is based on weight and more gas will add weight to the car.
- Check for fluid leaks. If any are found, they should be fixed before the car is picked up. Most drivers will not haul a car that has fluid leaks because the fluid can damage other cars on the carrier.
- Remove any exterior accessories that can fall off or be easily removed. This includes tool boxes, spoilers and other removable items.
- Have a spare key to the ignition, doors and trunk ready for the driver.
Getting Your Car to Anniston
There are several ways that a person can have a car moved to or from Anniston.
- Open Air Car Carrier: Open air car carriers offer a low-cost way to ship a car to or from Anniston. These carriers can haul anywhere from one to ten or more cars at a time and are made as single level flatbed trailers as well as double level car haulers. For standard car shipping, this is the way to go although it can take a little longer for delivery than other modes of transport. This is because the driver usually has a long route with quite a few cars to pickup and deliver along the way. Unless you need your car delivered fast, an open-air car carrier offers an economical way to have safe transport.
- Enclosed Car Carrier: Do you own an expensive luxury car or a collectible car that needs to be securely tucked away from the elements when it is moved from one place to another? Do you need a guaranteed delivery date or to have the car delivered fast? Enclosed car carriers can hold between one and six cars on a single level or a double level carrier and while the cost is usually higher than you’ll find with open air car carriers, they offer a highly secure mode of transport for motor vehicles. A bonus of shipping with enclosed transport services is that you can also ship personal belongings inside the car during shipment.
Why does enclosed car carrier service cost more?
Enclosed shipping services for motor vehicles usually cost more than open-air car delivery services and there are a few reasons why.
- Enclosed carriers are expensive to build, which means they are expensive to buy as well.
- Carrier companies who purchase trucks and trailers to haul cars want to move as many vehicles as possible in a short time as it keeps their revenue up.
- Some enclosed carriers are designed with padded interiors to offer extra protection during shipment.
- Cars are often delivered with a guaranteed delivery date when they ship with enclosed services.
- The insurance for enclosed transport is usually higher due to the expensive vehicles that are shipped inside.
Other ways to bring a car to Anniston
Other than interstate transport with open or enclosed carrier services, you can also choose from train and airplane transport for your car.
- Shipping by train- Trains are an economical way to ship a car across the country and while you need to plan far in advance to ensure you secure a spot for your car, they’re an ideal way to save money on shipping. Trains offer both open air and enclosed shipping services, so you can ship your daily driver or a high-end luxury car with ease.
- Shipping by plane- Air shipping is not at all an option that is economical. It’s the most expensive way to ship a car and is used for high-end luxury cars, exotics, expensive sports cars and others that need to be delivered quickly. Shipping by air can cost more than four times the average cost of shipping with an open-air carrier on the interstate.
