Shipping a Motor Vehicle to Helena
If you have a strict budget for shipping your motor vehicle to Helena, you can use the following information to help make a decision on how to transport the car:
Drive the car on your own
Many people choose to drive a vehicle on their own to try to save money when relocating a vehicle. This can be a great idea if the location is within just a few miles. If you are relocating long distance however, driving a car can wind up costing much more than initially planned. First, long distance driving is tiring and most people will need to stop for the night to rest. Hotels can be quite expensive. You will also most likely need to stop for food and drinks as well as fuel for the drive. Driving long distance will cause extensive wear and tear on a car and will cause it to rack up extra mileage that will lower the resale value. Accidents are prone to happen when drivers are fatigued. An auto accident can cost thousands of dollars as well as cause serious injury or death. Once you add up the added mileage, extra maintenance and cost associated with food and lodging, you may find that driving on your own can be very costly.
Hiring a company to drive the car for you can be just as risky as driving on your own when it comes to accidents as well as extra mileage, fuel, and car maintenance. The service itself may be priced lower than a professional transporter, but the overall cost can rack up when the value of your car declines from driving a long distance.
Professional Auto Transport
When you need to have the car transported long distance to Helena, the most efficient way to do so is with a professional auto transporter and an open air carrier. Open air carriers will allow the car to be relocated quickly with a lower cost than enclosed carriers and even when driving on your own. Shipping on an open carrier does expose vehicles to the elements during transport, but they will not rack up the extra mileage nor will you need to pay out of pocket for lodging, food or automobile accidents if they occur.
