Using Grand Prairie Auto Transport Services
- Online Searches - As with any other type of service or product, many customers that need a car shipped start their search on the internet. That being the case, there a few things you can do to improve your chances of finding a reputable and honest car shipper. One thing that you may find helpful is including the name of the city or cities in your search for a company. This is a great way to find shippers that have office locations in the city you’re sending your car to, which can be very helpful if there’s any sort of complication or additional service required. Nationwide auto transport companies often have storage facilities, delivery terminals, and offices located in cities across the U.S. These are the businesses you should seek out if you need a vehicle shipped over a long distance. Similarly, a local option might be better suited to regional auto transport.
- Pricing - One of the most common questions we hear from our customers is “How much will it cost?” The answer to this question varies based on a number of factors, which we’ll briefly review here. Distance is clearly a big factor since it directly impacts how much labor and fuel costs are required for the delivery. Similarly, the weight and dimensions of the vehicle play a role - an oversize vehicle that weighs more will be more expensive to ship than a standard car. The type of service you request will also matter in the final price you pay. If you’re looking to find the most affordable method for transporting a vehicle, you’ll want to request a cost estimate for an open-air carrier that delivers to a transport terminal. This means you’ll have to both drop off and pick up the vehicle at the nearest shipping terminal (usually in major cities). Premium services, such as enclosed transport, short-term storage, and door-to-door shipping, will carry a higher price, though it’s an advisable service for classic and luxury cars.
- Express Auto Transport - If you need a car shipped in a pinch, delivered quickly, or just weren’t able to book your transport until the last second, you’ll more than likely need to find a company that offers express car shipping. While it does carry an additional cost, express transport is the quickest way to get your vehicle from one place to another. Expedited shipping is often done with an enclosed carrier since they are usually smaller, get better gas mileage and can put in more miles per day. Remember that if you have a specific timeframe that you need your car delivered by, it should be communicated to the shipper as early in the process as possible. Most companies can accommodate a delivery window, but not all of them can promise delivery by a specific date.
