Shipping a Car to Hermiston
- If you live in the country, it’s usually best to schedule the carrier to pick the vehicle up in a nearby city when at all possible. Most carriers try to stay where the money is, and the money is in the city as fewer customers call for transport that will take the driver off the interstate or away from the city. It will usually cost more to get a truck to drive into a rural area so when you schedule the transport, it’s best to try to make arrangements to meet the driver either in the city or on the interstate to load and unload the vehicle.
- When an agent sets a schedule for a vehicle to be picked up and delivered, they usually schedule with a 3-4 day window of time. This is done because, in auto transport, there are no guarantees that a date will be precise. Many things can affect the transit times of vehicle delivery including weather and accidents along the way. Believe it or not but the number one action that causes a delay with auto transport is customers arriving late to drop their vehicle off or pick it up. It’s very important to be on time once the driver, or the agent, has called to let you know when the truck will arrive.
- If you are shipping a standard motor vehicle it is usually best to ship on an open carrier as they are cost effective and fast options for relocating vehicles. Open carriers can haul up to 10 vehicles at a time. If you have a classic car or a vintage, luxury or exotic car you should ship with an enclosed carrier. An enclosed carrier is sealed and protect vehicles from the elements during transport. They can haul anywhere from one car up to six cars. Enclosed carriers cost more than open carriers and they may take longer for pick-up and delivery as there are fewer enclosed carriers on the road, but they are worth the expense when shipping a valuable motor vehicle.
