How Long Does It Take to Schedule Auto Transport?
How much time does the auto transport company need to schedule auto transport service? Every company has their own personal procedures for securing transport services for their customers and the time needed can vary from one to another. For the most part, however, the company will need to have anywhere from three days to one week to schedule a carrier to pick the car up for delivery.
Why is this so? There are so many factors to consider. First, off there’s traffic. Unlike air transport where the estimated time of arrival is an exact science, gridlock and road constructions can cause delays. The company will also check for road closures or massive activities in each of the city or town the truck carrying your car would pass by on the way to the delivery destination.
The only way to cut down costs is to deliver in bulk. That is why carriers can offer such low rates when you consider the operational costs, gas, and labor cost. You might have seen the trailer with five to as many as a dozen cars on multi-story platform traversing along the highway at some point, and you get the idea.
If you can’t push back the timeline and you want the car there in three days, for instance, some companies can offer a special trip. Of course, it stands to reason that you will pay extra for this service.

Auto Transport Carriers
When you call to book transport service to or from Clanton for your vehicle, you’re going to find that you have a few choices on how to have the car relocated. Basically, you will need to choose between open or enclosed auto transport options.
- Open Auto Carrier: The most common way to ship a car is with an open auto carrier as they are generally the least expensive and offer single and double level carriers to haul one to ten or more vehicles. Exposed to the elements just as when being driven, these carriers are ideal for most makes and models of vehicles. For highly expensive or rare vehicles, you might want to go with enclosed services.
- Enclosed Auto Carrier: Designed to protect the vehicles that are within, enclosed auto carriers are a little more expensive than open carriers, but perfect for classic cars, sports cars, high-end luxury cars and other collectible and valuable vehicles. Vehicle owners often take advantage of being able to have personal items hauled with their cars when using enclosed services and like the fact that guaranteed delivery dates are often a great perk of this mode of transport.
Alternative Ways to Ship A Car
Other than interstate transport, you can also find other ways to move a car.
- Trains: Trains a cost-effective way to ship a car, especially if you have easy access to a railway station. Trains offer open and enclosed auto transport service for all types of vehicles. It’s best to call at least one month in advance to book train service as this mode of transport is used by large industry and it can often be difficult to find space on the train if you wait until close to the date you need transport services.
- Planes: Reserved for extremely expensive vehicles as air freight charges can be quite hefty, shipping by air is the quickest way for auto transport delivery. If interested in shipping on a plane, be sure to call in advance to get quotes for air freight to determine whether this service will be beneficial for your vehicle.
