How to Enclosed Car Transport Delivery Times?
When choosing enclosed car transport, understanding the process is ideal but knowing the delivery times is especially important. This is important since you must be there to sign for the vehicle when it arrives. Living in a home in a new area for months without personal transportation can be tough. Knowing when to expect delivery will help you plan how you will get around until the car is delivered.
Luckily, with a little knowledge in the enclosed car transport industry, you can have an ideal time of when your vehicle might arrive for you to pick up or have shipped to your home.
Expected Transport Delivery Times
Once you’ve spoken with the transport company, the vehicle will generally be picked up at the specific site around 2 to 7 days from the last day you spoke with them and finished the service order process.
Many different variables go into consideration with the times that the vehicle can be shipped. Drive time, miles, overseas shipments and more must be factored in to determine the time span the car will be on the road during transport. Careful shipment planning is to ensure that the vehicle makes it to the new destination safely. Additional variables may also be considered, such as the current weather in between the starting and destination points, traffic and the method for transport and the time it takes to drive to the destination
Example Shipping Times
Though times may vary, it is not uncommon for an enclosed car to take anywhere from 2 days to up to 8 weeks for a vehicle to arrive at its destination.
Generally, overseas shipments take weeks to get to their destinations. This should be something that you accommodate your move for. Planning before the move can ensure that your vehicle will be there within the time frame that you need it to be.
When you work with a reliable auto transport company, they will provide you with a range of times that the vehicle will be at the destination. This is to cover any downtime for the driver, accidents or other stops along the way that may come about during transport.
Another example with enclosed car transport is going from one state to the next within the same country. This generally will only take up to two weeks to go from one point to the next. Neighboring states can be done in just a few days’ time.
