Reliable transport options in Sullivan County
The major transportation options available domestically are open and enclosed transportation. Here is how to decide on either service.
- Enclosed transportation is more expensive. However, it is very effective in protecting high-value cars from bad weather and poor road conditions. It’s the most suitable for transporting classic and antique cars, high performance and luxury vehicles.
- Shipping cars to or from Sullivan County on a low budget is best done using open transportation. With this option, your car goes on top of an open truck together with many other vehicles. The fact that many cars are able to load on to the same truck is what makes this option affordable.
You can get a similar set of options for international auto shipment. International RORO and containerized shipping are the main options available. Read more about the options on the A-1 Auto Transport website. Living close to a terminal in Tennessee might help you to save up on the transportation costs. We also make convenient door-to-door delivery.
How to go about the shipping process
Scrutinize car-shipping companies. Make a list of several auto transport companies with operations across Tennessee. Read up on some of the reviews they get from trusted websites like the Better Business Bureau. You can also check with friends and relatives for their opinion. Make sure that the company has valid licensing and insurance. To check for licensing, get their MC or DOT license number and run it against records at the FMCSA. Always ask for their insurance policy document to see what kind of insurance coverage they give. Ask for quotes from several companies and compare them. Try to avoid focusing on the pricing alone. Carefully read every quote to find out how those prices compare to the services being offered. The costs may differ due to a host of factors. Some of these include:
- Type of service or method of transportation: For example, door-to-door service costs more compared to terminal shipping. Open transport is cheaper than enclosed transport.
- Insurance charges: Most transport companies will include insurance charges as part of your estimate. There are different types of covers and these come at different rates.
Decide on your preferred mode of transportation. At this point, you pretty much have an idea on the cost of shipping cars to or from Sullivan County using different options. Choose your best preference based on your needs. At times, it is always about the cost while in others, convenience is what matters. Different methods will also affect your timelines. It takes more time to schedule for enclosed transportation and door-to-door shipping. Get a copy of the shipping contract before you commit to a transport service. Make sure that you go through and understand all its contents. This could help you to point out red flags in the contract. An example is a clause that absolves the company of responsibility if your car gets damaged.
