Using Canton, Michigan Auto Transport Services
Storage & Insurance - Two extra services that are offered by most auto shippers are storage and additional insurance. Supplemental insurance is not usually needed unless you’re shipping a vehicle with a high value and are concerned that the basic coverage will not be enough to cover potential damages. Storage yards can be found in most major cities around the United States and auto transport companies frequently have their own storage facilities. If a shipper doesn’t have their own storage available, they can usually put you in touch with a local option where you’re shipping to.
Saving Money on Transport - There are some simple steps you can take to reduce the cost of shipping your car, mainly through planning and understanding the options mentioned above.
- Open air & terminal delivery - Using an open air carrier and shipping to a delivery terminal, rather than door-to-door, is the cheapest way to ship a car. Enclosed carriers can haul fewer vehicles, making the price more expensive per car, and shipment to a terminal reduces fuel costs for the shipper and the customer.
- Planning ahead - If you know well ahead of time that you’ll need a vehicle shipped, it’s good to start planning and contacting companies. The more time you can give the transporter to plan the details of the route and find enough customers to fill the carrier, the better. Last minute jobs and rush delivery typically cost more.
- Discounts - Ask any car shipper you talk to if they offer a discount program. Here at A-1 Auto Transport, we offer specials for members of the military, students, seniors, snowbirds, AAA members, roundtrip booking and multi-car shipments, just to name a few. You can view a full listing of our discounts and specials here.
- Shopping around - Like any other product or service you buy, it’s a good idea to shop around when assessing auto shippers. You’ll find different prices and service levels from companies, so getting a couple competing for price quotes is a good practice.
Classic & Vintage Cars - For customers that need a classic or vintage car shipped, there are a few options you may want to consider. The first is an enclosed carrier, which offers a higher level of protection for the vehicle while it’s being shipped. An additional benefit of using an enclosed carrier is that they tend to be smaller trucks, which makes it easier for the driver to accommodate requests for delivery to a specific address. (Larger carriers may have issues navigating some city streets.) Enclosed auto transport is recommended for custom and exotic cars since they sometimes have dimensions that make it difficult to ship them on a multi-car carrier.
