How To Ship Your Mistral 

For a short three years between 1957 and 1960, the Mistral was one of the most celebrated automobiles. Purchasing such a vehicle will no doubt be a difficult undertaking. Shipping it home can be just as tedious, what with the numerous options available in the market and a lot of information. It might be difficult to navigate the field and arrive at an appropriate choice of company. Luckily, our car transport guide is on hand to ensure your process goes as smoothly as possible.

Whether you are going for local, interstate or overseas shipment, choosing us as an automobile shipping partner guarantees the client the comfort and peace of mind that their car will arrive at the agreed destination on time, and in the best possible condition. Here are some of our specialties when it comes to long distance car shipping.

Our company offers two categories of auto transport, domestic and international. Domestic shipment refers to the moving of vehicles from state to state. International shipping involves the shipment of vehicles to or from overseas locations. Our company offers clients the most competitive rates for both international and domestic auto shipping.

We also have two types of shipping carriers, open and enclosed. Open carriers are just as the name suggests, open to the elements, while closed carriers are normally the typical container type carriers. Dealerships, for instance, might prefer the open carriers for their ability to ferry more vehicles at once. Most of the time, for the closed carriers the number of vehicles transported is minimal, sometimes just the one.

In terms of pickup and delivery, the client will no doubt be delighted to learn about the options available. We offer door to door pickup and delivery services, with the vehicle to be transported picked up at one’s home or office, and shipped directly to their new base, even in cases where the new location is overseas. However, our company recognizes that in some instances, this might not be practical or necessary.

Some neighborhoods, for instance, do not have alleyways large enough for carriers to pass through in order to pick up the vehicle at home. With that in mind, we also offer terminal to terminal pick-up and delivery. This allows the client to drop off their vehicle, and pick it up at the nearest terminal to their destination.

Many of these are offered by the rest of the industry too, though so what truly set us apart? Here are some exclusive services we offer;

  • We have competitive rates and cheap prices, some of the lowest and most convenient in the industry, regardless of one’s choice of shipping specifications.
  • Ours is one of the most reliable companies in the market. We have a strong reputation, as can be attested to by our previous customers, and the experience dealing with all types of vehicles across various distance variations.
  • Our team of experts and customer care officials always provides the most comprehensive pre-shipping guidance and are open to more than just the simple how much does it cost type questions.
