What is Door-to-Door versus Terminal-to-Terminal Boat Delivery?
There are several methods of shipping a boat both domestically and internationally. After a method of shipping is determined, you’ll be offered various optional services too. Some of these optional services include terminal-to-terminal and door-to-door delivery. Not everyone will have this option but in most cases, expect to choose between the two.
Terminal-to-terminal is common among most transport companies. Not all transporters offer door-to-door delivery like you’ll find offered by A1 Auto Transport. When your boat is going through terminal-to-terminal delivery, you’ll need to drop it off on the date scheduled.
A1 will specify what terminal to drop it off at. Once it arrives, it is secured to a hauler for delivery to another terminal where it must be retrieved after its arrival.
Door-to-door delivery costs a little more than terminal-to-terminal delivery. However, it uses much less of the customer’s time and even lightens their responsibility. A1 will send their driver to where the boat is stored to pick it up for its transport. The boat is then secured to the proper hauler for its travels. The boat will be delivered directly to the address stated by the shipping customer.
