How To Ship Your Lozier
So you have decided to ship your Lozier cross country and are looking for an auto shipping company.
Here are some of the benefits you might enjoy when you ship with us.
How much does it cost?
We recognize the fact that auto shipment is not necessarily cheap, but there is need to make it affordable to fit in with customer budgets. We offer some of the most reliable rates in the industry and always work with the client to establish a budget. Obviously, local transport will be cheaper than long distance interstate shipment. In many cases, overseas shipment is the most expensive. However, the main aim of our company is to provide the highest level of service at those rates.
After buying a new car, even when one has all the information about their shipment, handing over the vehicle to another company for shipment is a nerve wracking experience. We make sure the process goes as smoothly as possible. We give timely and useful communication every step of the way, treating every case uniquely and always responding to the needs of the client. We believe a lot of the problems that arise during a typical long distance shipping process can be solved through a steady stream of communication. If needed, we provide the shipment tracking details to the client so they can keep track of their vehicle and the delivery schedules.
We offer an extensive pre-shipping consultation. Before the actual car shipping begins, we will always give our best in terms of advice and information to the client so that they have everything they need to make an informed decision. There are many points of consideration for any typical shipping experience. We will go through everything with the client, answering any questions that might arise and offering expert advice every step of the way. For overseas shipment, we take care of everything for the client and all they have to do is to wait for their vehicle to be picked up. We handle the customs paperwork, the loading, and the unloading, as well as storage as per the requests of the client.
Door to door or terminal pick up?
Again, the decision between these two will depend on several factors. First, the state of the vehicle can make this process easy. Whether the vehicle is in driving condition or not will determine whether it is delivered to the shipping terminal or picked up at home. Those with the time and resources to deliver and pick up their vehicles at both ends of the journey might consider terminal based pickup and delivery. Otherwise, even though it might be a little more expensive, door-to-door is the most convenient. In fact, many companies only do door-to-door deliveries.
During the shipping process, one will find that picking up the vehicle always takes much longer than the actual delivery. The majority of orders are shipped in a week, but the actual pick up might take between 2-3 days. After the pickup, not much should go wrong. The delivery depends on the distance. Overseas shipping might take longer depending on whether it is air or freight. Domestic road or rail shipment takes between a day and 7.
