The Best Way To Ship High Value Vehicles

Any type of luxury, exotic, classic, or one-of-a-kind vehicle needs to be shipped in a particular way to make certain there is no risk of damage. Auto transport companies take every step possible to make sure that any vehicle they haul is not damaged during shipping, but there are additional services you can request to help safeguard against any possibility of damage. High value cars are shipped in an enclosed carrier almost without exception, and for good reason. Using an enclosed carrier—think of a large box truck that completely covers the vehicle on all sides—is the best way (and industry standard) to ship cars with a higher value. Not only does an enclosed carrier keep your vehicle from being susceptible from things like rain, snow, dust, and wind, but it also provide a level of discretion that is simply not possible when using an open carrier on which all cars are visible. 

Another benefit of using enclosed auto shipping is that the carriers only allow for one, or sometimes two cars to be shipped at once. Fewer cars being carried on the same carrier limits the amount of exposure your vehicle will have to things like fluid leaks from other cars on the same truck. 

The other major component to high value auto shipping is door-to-door transport. There are two reasons door-to-door shipping is so frequently used for luxury and exotic transport. The first is that it’s convenient and owners that ship these types of vehicles tend to appreciate ease of use on their end of the service. The second is that it eliminates a step in the process that the owner would otherwise have to facilitate, which is to say picking up the car from a transport terminal or depot. The car then has to be hauled or driven to its ultimate destination, creating an unnecessary trip and the potential for damage during the process. The further the terminal from where the car is headed, the more the potential risk. Having the vehicle dropped right at your specified location eliminates these potential risks.

Researching To Find The Right Car Shipper

Finding the right company to move a valuable car is more important than shipping a standard vehicle. Obviously, you’re entrusting a company to ship something that means a lot to you and is worth a lot, so it’s all the more important to make sure you find the right fit. This usually starts with a simple online search using websites like the Better Business Bureau and seeking out reviews from customers who have actually used the service. Other online review sites can be helpful as well, but you should take them with a grain of salt. Unlike other industries, auto transport customers rarely take the time to detail when an experience was great, but if they have a bad experience, they’re far more likely to share their story. Unfortunately, the blame sometimes get misplaced in these instances, but it’s still important to look at these reviews, especially if there is a pattern of similarly bad experiences. For the best information available, including safety ratings, operating authority, and experience in the industry, we highly suggest consulting the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, which is the authority that oversees car shipping companies.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
