Do Auto Transport Companies Give Senior Discounts?

Published by Joe Webster.

 moving across the country

Whether you’re moving across the country and want to avoid driving your car, or you’re buying or selling a vehicle in another state, you may be wondering if you can get a discount on car shipping as a senior.

After all, senior discounts are available at a wide variety of other companies – from retail to restaurants, movie theaters, and more. So is it possible? Do auto transport companies give senior auto transport discounts? Find out now!

Do Auto Transport Companies Give Senior Discounts?

The answer is “yes.” However, it depends on the auto transport company you work with. At A-1 Auto Transport, for example, we offer great deals on auto shipping for seniors – you can contact us for more details. Some auto transport companies do not offer any special senior discounts, though. It all depends on which company you choose.

Often, you can find out if a particular auto transportation company offers senior discounts by looking at its website, and viewing any special deals or discounts they may have. If you can’t find anything on the website, you should contact the company directly to inquire about senior discounts for auto transport.

In some cases, you may be able to get a discount even if the company does not usually offer them, as long as you’re polite and you are serious about using their services. For most auto shipping companies, a small discount is worth it for a guaranteed sale for their services.

How Can I Save Money While I Ship My Car As A Senior?

Senior discounts aren’t the only ways to save when you ship a car as a senior. You can also shop around to see the best rates from different shipping companies, choose open trailer shipping, be flexible in your delivery and pickup dates, and choose terminal-to-terminal transport rather than door-to-door service.

  • Shop around for the best rates – You may want to inquire about car shipping rates from multiple providers. Doing so will ensure that your chosen service provider is giving you a good deal, and allows you to learn more about the different services and specials – like senior discounts – that each company may provide.
  • Choose open trailer shipping – If you have a very expensive sports car, exotic car, or classic car, you may want to ship your car in a closed trailer, since this provides more protection from wear & tear, theft, and vandalism.

    But if you just have a normal vehicle that’s not extremely valuable, open trailer shipping is a lot cheaper than a closed trailer. It’s easier to load and unload an open trailer, and it can usually carry more vehicles, resulting in a lower overall transport cost. This means it’s the best choice for seniors on a budget.
  • Plan ahead, be flexible about delivery & pickup dates – The faster you need to ship your car, the more you’ll pay. If you can plan ahead and have some flexibility about when your car can be picked up and delivered, you’ll be able to save big when it’s time to ship your vehicle.
  • Choose terminal-to-terminal transport – Most auto shipping companies for seniors will offer “door-to-door” shipping service. This means your car will be picked up at your home, and delivered directly to your new home or other destination.

    However, this service is a bit more expensive. If you need to save on shipping your car, you can choose “terminal-to-terminal” transport. This means you will drive your car to a specified freight terminal, where it will be picked up by your car shipping company. Then, it will be delivered to a freight terminal near your destination – where you’ll come to pick it up, then drive it home. This process takes longer and is not as convenient, but it’s usually cheaper.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★ choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
