Using Tallahassee Vehicle Transport Companies
When you are looking to book Tallahassee car transport services, keep a few key tips in mind:
- Disable your car alarm: There is perhaps nothing more irritating to a transport company than a car alarm that keeps going off. Disable your alarm before dropping your car off.
- Ask about U.S. DOT registration: A transport company should be registered with the Department of Transportation to be in business. Ask for proof of this registration before signing a contract.
- Inquire about accepted forms of payment: It pays to be prepared; if your transport company only accepts cash upon delivery of your vehicle, you don’t want to be prepared with a credit card or check.

Long Distance Auto Transport to/from Tallahassee
The first time you go on a long distance drive is always the hardest. You vehicle may break down midway. You might get lost or fall asleep while driving.
Finding accommodation can be difficult, expensive, and even dangerous if you don’t know the area. So, unless you’re going on vacation, it may not be worth it.
Instead, if you’re moving to a new state and need your car with you, why not have an auto transport company take it there for you? You can use the extra time to get accommodated with the city or spend a few more days with your loved ones in the previous one.
Shipping Luxury and Classic Cars in Tallahassee
To make auto transportation a fast and safe process, a lot of planning and coordinating is necessary, sometimes taking more than a week. Therefore, if you’re late to call, you’ll be charged extra.
Luxury and classic cars are usually transported in enclosed carriers, since they’re faster and cover them completely. This way, flying objects and weather phenomena are kept at bay, and scratches/bumps are.
However, such carriers are fewer than open ones due to the higher costs of operating them. The chances of them being booked are also higher, so if you want us to prepare such a carrier for you, please call now.
Special Discounts in Tallahassee
One of the simplest ways to get a discount when using our company is to wait for our seasonal offers. When they appear, you can use them without having to meet any other criteria.
To get a better deal, please also check if you're qualified for our other discounts. There are many of these, so you're chances are good.
If you haven't worked with us before, you can get a first timer discount. If you’re in the military, a senior, or a student you can receive a price reduction just because you're part of one of these groups. You can also get a Snowbirds discount if you're shipping in autumn/spring to/from the colder parts of the US. If you want to transport several cars at a time, you'll receive a multi car discount as well.
International Shipping to/from Tallahassee
The factors at play in an international shipment are far more than in long distance operations. While the car is still inside the US, our staff won’t need to deal with customs officials or with ports. The law stays relatively the same, so there’s not as much research involved in the preparatory phase, especially since our drivers have visited most US states during their career.
To ship abroad, all the above mentioned factors must be taken into consideration. A close collaboration between our team and yourself is necessary for the paperwork to be ready on time. The car must also be appropriately cleaned and prepared for shipping.
Cheap Transportation Options in Tallahassee
In reaction to a growing demand for open auto carrier transportation, our company has expanded its fleet, so we can take better care of our regular clients.
Most people are interested in cheap auto transportation instead of extra speed or comfort. Even if it takes a bit of your time to drive your car to a terminal or to pick it up from one, the much lower price encourages many people to do so. The company saves fuel and time while you lower your expenses.
Also, more and more people inquire about our specials and discounts. Of course, we provide them in various situations. Our staff will let you know which you can use over the phone.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to be present during pickup and delivery when transporting my car to or from Tallahassee, FL?
Most transport companies will require that you or someone you designate be present when the driver picks up your vehicle and drops it off.
Before picking up your car, the driver will go through an inspection of your vehicle with you or your designee and sign off on the vehicle’s condition.
When the driver delivers your car to its destination, you (or your designee) and the driver will go through the same inspection to assess any damage during transport.
If assigning someone you represent you during pickup or delivery, be sure to let your transport company or broker know.
How can I best prepare my car for auto transport to or from Tallahassee, FL?
- Clean your car, so it’s spotless, inside and out. Cleaning your vehicle helps to detect any knicks, dings, or dents.
- Remove all personal items out of your car.
- Make sure there is a ¼ tank of gas in the car. This amount of gas supports the driver who has to drive your vehicle on and off a carrier, and it keeps the weight of the transport down, making a difference in the amount of gas needed.
*NOTE – Be prepared to take pictures and capture your car’s condition before transport when you meet the driver for pickup. You will use the photos when inspecting your car at delivery.
Will I be able to track my vehicle while it’s in transit to or from Tallahassee, FL?
Yes, you will. There are different ways that transport companies allow you to track your vehicle:
- Many have online tracking. Go to the company’s website, enter your tracking number, and their system will update you.
- Some companies will contact you with an update without you asking for it
- Some companies will only update you if you ask
- If independently owned and operated, a driver who does all the work themselves may even give you their cell number so you can speak with them directly.
