State To State Moving Service With Car Transport
You have just landed your dream job or promotion that requires you to relocate to an out of state city. Or you have just been admitted to an out of state college. Whichever the case for moving, you need to find a company that provides a moving service. But, it becomes tricky when you have a car. Driving long distance is not always a good option. Therefore, you need to find a company that provides state to state moving service with car transport.
Consider selling the car
Long distance car shipping is quite expensive. If your car is cheap, you might want to consider selling it. Remember, moving to another state involves changing the car registration and changing your driver’s license, processes which will cost you money. So it might not be worth it for a cheap or old car.
Also, different states have different safety and emissions standards. An old car might not pass these tests. Nonetheless, confirm these standards before considering disposing off the car. To be sure, contact the Department of Motor Vehicles and ask them about the safety and emission standards of the state you are moving to. Remember to also ask about the cost of these tests.
If you find out that the car may not pass the tests, then it is not worth moving with it.
What are your state to state moving service with car transport options?
So, you have decided to move with your car. What are your options?
- Move your car together with your household items: This option is the most obvious, and many people will prefer it. It is possible to find a moving company that will load your car together with your household goods into a large truck. Remember, moving companies’ charges are based on weight and the truck size needed. Unfortunately, your car will occupy a large space and is very heavy. Therefore, this option will be very expensive.
- Hire an auto transport company to move your car: The other option is to hire two different companies for the move. Hire a moving company to move the household items. Then find an auto transport company to ship your car to your new home. This option is cheaper than the previous one. The auto mover will load your vehicle into an open or enclosed truck together with other cars. It is also a safer option because auto shippers are better experienced in car shipping. They will, therefore, have the right equipment to load and secure your car in the transport truck.
The downside to this option is that your car and your household goods may arrive at different times.
