Questions and Answers About Jacksonville Car Shipping
Keep the following in mind when shipping a car to Jacksonville, Alabama:
- How long will it take for my car to be relocated to Jacksonville, Alabama? - Car shipping can take anywhere from a few days to several weeks. This depends on the location of pick-up as well as delivery and the distance between the two. It also depends on the time of year, weather, traffic and even other customers. Customers that arrive late to drop their vehicle off or pick it up can delay other customers. Typically it will take 3-5 days when shipping from the south to the Midwest and up to 2 weeks from coast to coast.
- Will my SUV fit on a standard open air carrier? - An SUV will usually fit on a standard open air carrier but quite often you may be required to pay an oversized vehicle fee if the SUV is large. Most companies will charge more for oversized SUV’s or truck. They do this because larger vehicles will take up more space on a carrier and the company will not normally be able to transport as many vehicles.
- Will I need to be present when my car is picked up? - Due to insurance and a pre-delivery inspection, you will need to be present or have someone that you trust be present when the car is picked up. The driver will complete a mandatory bumper to bumper vehicle inspection and the inspection report will need to be signed to verify that it is accurate.
- Can I load my personal belongings inside the car during transport? - No. Per the Department of Transportation, carriers are not allowed to transport anything aside from the vehicle itself. If you choose to place items inside the car during shipment they will not be covered by the company insurance and if anything is lost or damaged, it will be your responsibility to replace it. Also, personal items can add weight to the vehicle and that can increase your cost and can also cause the driver to have an overweight load on the truck.
