Using Pittsburgh Vehicle Transport Companies
If you plan to transport a vehicle to Pittsburgh, remember:
- Don’t forget to tip your driver: This is simply a courtesy, but one that makes you a good customer. Tipping is standard in this industry.
- Be on time for appointments made to pick up your vehicle: Not only is it considered rude to be late picking up your vehicle from the depot, but some companies may charge you extra if they have to have a representative stand around and wait for you to show up.
- Opt for door-to-door shipping if there are no depots nearby: The very point of auto shipping is to make it convenient; not very convenient if you have to drive more than half hour or so to get your vehicle from the depot. If this is the case, pay the extra to have your vehicle delivered to your door.

Auto Transport Safety Measures in Pittsburgh
When business or work requires you to move, there may not be enough time to worry about your car. Nonetheless, you probably want to ensure it arrives safely to your new city.
For the best protection, we recommend our enclosed trucks. Driven by highly experienced drivers, they’re one of the fastest and safest shipping methods. They keep birds and storms at a distance and hide your vehicle from potential robbers.
However, if you cannot afford this level of service, an open trailer is a good option too. Your car will be immobile during the shipment thanks to the straps our carriers are equipped with. It will also receive decent protection against outside elements thanks to the bars surrounding it.
