How Long In Advance Should I Book an Order to Ship My Car?

When you must set up a transport for your vehicle, try to call in at least a few weeks in advance to schedule. You never know how busy the shipping company might be. Giving the transporter at least a few weeks’ notice is plenty of time for you and the company to prepare for your vehicle’s delivery process. However, if you plan on shipping the car overseas, you may very well want to schedule the transport a couple months in advance. Shipping a car overseas requires a lot more attention to detail and paperwork.
