Domestic car shipping at the port
Several car carriers provide the services of shipping cars to or from port of Sandusky. During the summer months, there is increased demand for shipping from all over the nation to Sandusky. People visiting the port and the surrounding islands still need their cars. Actually, the Jackson Street Pier at the port is a vehicle ferry terminal that services the Pelee Island, a big Canadian island on Lake Erie with a myriad of attractions.
Domestic car shipping to and from the port is conducted and priced like any other. The distance and the size of the vehicle are the main factors that affect the shipping rates. Then, customers choose from the following services;
- Shipping method. The two options are shipping cars on enclosed trucks or open trucks. The choice here is a bargain between cost and the safety of your car. A car shipped in an enclosed truck is safe from road debris and harsh weather and also prying eyes. However, shipping on an open truck is cheap and relatively safe on urban roads. We recommend shipping on an open truck when shipping over short distances and when shipping standard value
- Pickup and delivery methods. Pickup of the car can be done from the vehicle’s current location, or you can deliver it to a shipping terminal near you. Similarly, delivery can be made to a terminal or to any other location you want. The options available are door-to-door, terminal-to-door, door-to-terminal, and terminal-to-terminal. Before you decide on any option involving a terminal, contact the shipping company to make sure they have one near you.
