- Is it safer to drive a car or to have it professionally transported state to state? - Many people ask this question and many assume it is safer as well as cheaper to just drive on their own. Unfortunately, this is not at all true. Driving a car, especially long distance, can be very dangerous as well as costly. Driving causes fatigue and driving when tired can cause accidents. Accidents lead to damage including property and personal and this can be very expensive even when the car is covered by insurance. It can also be expensive to drive as there will be fuel stops as well as potential overnight hotel stays and stops for food and beverages. There is also more money invested in car maintenance when driving and basic maintenance charges as well as vehicle mileage add up quickly when driving.
- Can a driver come to my house to pick the car up? - Most companies prefer door to door transport and will arrange to pick the car up at your home or office address. If the local roads will not allow large carriers to drive on them or if the roadways are too narrow to accommodate a large truck, the company will arrange to pick the car up or deliver it to a location close to the requested address.
- May I pack items in the car during transport? - No. In general, this applies to all motor vehicle carriers as the Department Of Transportation regulations specify that vehicle transporters can only transport vehicles. Some companies, especially full-service movers, may allow items inside the vehicle but this is something that the company will let you know about when you are booking transport.
