Using Framingham Auto Transport Services
- Methods Of Delivery - When you hire a company to move a vehicle for you, you will have to decide how and where you want it shipped. Most companies will offer two delivery options: to a shipping terminal or directly to an address (door-to-door). When using a shipping terminal, you will have to pick up the car after it’s delivered, usually in the nearest major city. With door-to-door shipment, the vehicle is picked up from a specific address and delivered to a specific address, removing the extra legwork on the back end. You will also have a choice between an open or enclosed transport carrier. An open carrier hauls several cars at once and they are exposed during the trip, whereas an enclosed carrier keeps the vehicle shielded on all sides during transport and moves one or two cars typically. Enclosed carriers and door-to-door service do cost slightly more than an open air carrier or shipping to a terminal.
- Internet Searches - If you’re reading this, odds are you found this page by searching on the internet, which is a great place to look for auto shippers. It does, however, benefit you to be specific in the terms you use when looking for a carrier to move your car. As an example, if you needed a car shipped from Framingham to Chicago, you’d want to include those cities in your web search. (Ideally, you should work with a shipper that has offices in the area you’re shipping to and from for ease of communication.) If you need a particular type of vehicle shipped, it’s good to include that as well. To continue our example from above, if it’s a boat you need shipping from Framingham to Chicago, include that in your search in order to get the best results.
- Bill of Lading - The bill of lading is the main document used when transporting a cargo of any type, including vehicles. It’s important to make sure that the information included on the bill of lading is accurate since it details the information about the type of vehicle, parties involved, where it’s going and the method of shipment. The condition of your car will also be noted on the bill of lading, which you should pay especially close attention to. The driver will do a pre-inspection and post-inspection of the car and compare the two after delivery to see if any damages occurred. We encourage our customers to be present during both ends of the inspection and, if they so desire, to make their own notes and take pictures of the car before shipment.
