Using Merced, CA Auto Transport Services
- Oversize Vehicles - Not all auto shipping companies are equipped to move large and oversize vehicles. With vehicles that are particularly heavy, large, or wide, special equipment is often required to properly load them onto the transport trailer. Vehicles that fall into this category include construction equipment, heavy machinery, oversize trucks and big rigs, tractors, trailers and anything else that doesn’t fit onto a standard auto carrier. It’s always a good idea to communicate with your transport company if you have any concern that the vehicle you’re shipping won’t comfortably fit on a standard sized carrier.

- Terminal Delivery - There are two types of delivery methods commonly used by car carriers. The first, known as door-to-door transport is a high-end service that tends to cost more since the vehicle is delivered to a specific address. Many times, when you request a price estimate from an auto shipper, the price they will quote you is for door-to-door transport, which is the more expensive of the two options. If saving money on car shipping is high on your priority list, make sure that you get an estimate for delivery to a shipping terminal. This involves a little more work on the customer side since you have to pick up your car when it arrives at the terminal, but the savings can be substantial. Most auto shipping companies have access to delivery terminals and storage facilities near major cities and key metro areas.
- Maintenance Check - There are many auto shippers who will not move your car if it’s not in good running condition, which includes fluid leaks. If you need a non-running or inoperable vehicle shipped, make sure to mention that the vehicle does not run early in the process. Special equipment is required to load vehicles that don’t run and not every company will have a winch. Because of the potential for leaks, even running cars should be serviced and receive basic maintenance before being picked up by the carrier.
