Domestic and overseas shipment
Our company has the capability to offer both domestic and international car shipping services. Domestically, we handle both local transport and interstate shipping. Many of our orders are domestic shipping requests, many of which are handled within less than a week, depending on the distance and availability of carrier slots.
Internationally, we offer four types of shipment: road transport, rail transport, freight transport and air transport. Whether one is shipping to or from an overseas location, we handle everything from the custom clearance filings, container packing, and storage, as well as cross border shipping.
Pickup and delivery
Customers will also enjoy flexibility and options in terms of pickup and delivery. One of the most important aspects of our automobile transport is the arrangement of pickup and delivery services beforehand. Typically, there are two types of delivery and pickup our company offers, door to door and terminal to terminal.
In door to door shipment, the vehicle is picked from its location and is delivered to the specified location, the home, office or any other preferred location. Terminal to terminal pick up involves the vehicle being delivered to company terminal. It is then transported to a pre-arranged terminal at the destination, where the owner can pick it up. All this happens within acceptable and competitive rates.
Choice of carriers
Our company also offers clients the option of either enclosed or open carriers. There is not much of a difference between the two when it comes to safety, given the fact that majority of auto transport happens in open carriers.
Open carriers are especially useful for those who wish to transport many vehicles, like in dealerships. However, when transporting a luxury vehicle, one could be forgiven for going enclosed. Enclosed carriers often only have the on the vehicle on board, and might cost more than the open carriers. Whatever the client’s preferences, our company will always provide the car transport best services.
We have discovered that majority of the time in the shipping process is taken up by the pickup. The majority of Americans live in urban, highly populated towns, and will likely want to have their vehicles shipped to other highly populated areas. Those who live in rural areas are often advised, if possible, to drive their cars to nearby towns and have them picked up from pre-arranged locations.
The delivery portion is the easy part, though. After the processing of the order, delivery depends on the number of miles to the destination. Our company’s shipping times range from between 1 and 2 days for between 100 and 500 miles, to up to 6 and 7 days for over 2500 miles.
