Using South Gate Auto Transport Services 

  • Drive Away Service – Drive away services have become more popular of late, especially when customers see the prices and compare them with standard auto shipping. And it’s true, drive away services are much more cost-effective, but they come with their own set of risks; namely, trusting a stranger to drive your car. The way it works is that you contact a third party service that works with drivers, does background checks, and assigns the job of driving the vehicles. It can be pretty pain-free when done right. Another big drawback, however; is that you still end up putting miles on the car and taking on the same risks as if you drove it yourself. The only real savings offered with this method is that you don’t have to invest your own time in driving the car over a long distance, which can be helpful in some instances.

  • Standard Auto Transport – With standard shipping, your car is loaded onto a transport carrier and driven to its destination without putting any miles on it, which is one of the primary advantages over a drive away service. While it does cost more, there’s less potential for mechanical hiccups if your car is being shipped, which you can’t say for services that have someone drive it for you. You also get an additional layer of protection when you choose to have your car shipped since it’s not as susceptible to hazardous weather conditions and road debris. After choosing a company to work with, you will either be contacted by the driver to arrange for pick up of your vehicle or make arrangements to drop it off at a shipping terminal. From there, the driver will do an inspection of the car to assess it for damage and make sure it’s in proper condition to be loaded onto the carrier. A follow-up inspection of the vehicle is done at drop off to determine if there have been any damages to the car during shipping.
  • International Car Shipping – The process of shipping a car overseas is a little more complicated than overland transport, though you may still have to use standard auto transport to get your vehicle to a shipping port. From there, your vehicle will either be loaded into a shipping container before being put onto the ship, or it will be driven on the ship and secured before delivery. The second method is referred to as “RORO” transport in the shipping industry because the vehicle is “rolled on” (driven onto) the transport ship, then “rolled off” when it arrives at the destination port. Experience is important when you have a car shipped internationally so make sure you find a company that has a full understanding of the process and lists the specific locations they ship to.
