Door To Door Truck Shipping & Transport Services
As with any other type of vehicle, a truck can be shipped door to door, but there are a few details that are slightly different. On this page, we’ll cover those details as well as some other tips to help you understand the process and how to go about finding the right services from the right shipper.
For smaller trucks, the process of door to door shipping doesn’t really differ much from a car. Larger trucks can be a little more challenging to deliver door-to-door because a larger truck requires a larger carrier. In some cases, the vehicle may have to be dropped off at the nearest accessible point for the transport truck.
Why Choose Door To Door?
The main benefits of using door to door transport when shipping a truck are time and convenience. Instead of having to drop it off at a transport terminal, have it delivered, and then retrieve from another terminal, the truck is dropped off right at your doorstep.
The standard method of transport involves the steps mentioned above through a shipping terminal. While most major cities and metro areas have facilities where trucks can be dropped off, they can sometimes be a fair distance from your final destination, in which case you need to pick up the truck from the terminal and drive it the rest of the way. With door to door truck shipping, you get to skip the legwork of drop off and pick up.
Getting An Estimate For Door To Door Truck Shipping
Getting a price quote for door to door truck shipping is a pretty straightforward and simple process. After determining where you need your truck shipped to and when you want it to arrive, you can start contacting companies to get an estimate. Basic things like the make, model and year of the vehicle will also be required, as well as your own contact information.
There are also different types of trucks, which may require special equipment or a certain type of carrier, depending on the size. Here are some of the most common types of trucks we transport:
- Small and mini trucks
- Pickup trucks
- Panel trucks
- Tow trucks
- Box trucks
- Flatbed trucks
- Heavy trucks
Regardless of the type of truck you’re having shipped, the process remains more or less the same. The driver will arrive at the specified address on the agreed upon date and load the truck onto the carrier. From there you review the bill of lading with the driver, noting the condition of the truck and any existing damages, and then it’s on its way! It’s really that simple. Just a few phone calls to compare prices, choose a shipper, and they take care of the rest.
