Using Durham Vehicle Transport Companies

Prior to your trip to Durham, make plans for transport with some key advice:

  • Get your vehicle properly prepped for the climate associated with the trip: For instance, if you are traveling to Durham during the summer months, chances are your vehicle is going to have to pass through the elements to get there, including sometimes driving rain. Make sure it is prepped for this reality.
  • Sometimes, cheaper isn’t always better: In other words, depending on the needs of your vehicle as it is being transported, sometimes, opting for the cheapest possible transport isn’t the best option. Be prepared for that fact in your budget.
  • Take the time to ask questions: When you are in such a hurry that you skip this part of the process, you might find that you regret it later. Asking questions about your transport contract, what is included in the price for services and more are important elements about which to inquire BEFORE you sign on the dotted line.

Long Distance Auto Transport to/from Durham

Each break a driver has to take during a long distance journey can be very expensive. Hotels are notoriously expensive, and the more days you have to spend on the road, the more nights you’ll have to book. Also, you’ll have to plan out your meals and search for cheap solution. This can cost you time, and you may not always find what you’re looking for.

Due to these inconveniences and many other, many people opt for long distance auto transport services. By dealing with our company directly, you can avoid brokers and keep costs to a minimum, sometimes even below $500.

Shipping Luxury and Classic Cars in Durham

When moving to Durham, your possessions will most likely travel in a moving company’s truck. However, you cannot use the same truck/company to move your luxury or classic car. For it, you’ll need a direct shipper and most likely an enclosed carrier.

Unlike open carriers, enclosed trucks don’t leave the cargo exposed to the weather. You can count on them to transport high end vehicles without risking scratches or bumps. An enclosed carrier is also much faster than the alternative, and its schedule is much more predictable. If you want your car to arrive on a specific date, it’s much easier to arrange the transport with this type of truck.
