What is Terminal-To-Terminal Auto Transport Services?
Terminal-to-terminal trucking is the most cost-effective technique for transporting a vehicle. Usually run by the transportation firms directly or by a third party a terminal is essentially a depot where vehicles are dropped off and picked up. Terminals are typically located in major metropolitan areas and larger towns around the United States though this varies from firm to corporation.
The other major method of shipping a vehicle, door-to-door transport, costs more but also eliminates the extra trips required by dropping off and picking up the vehicle at a shipping terminal. While you do sacrifice some convenience with terminal auto transport, it’s a good way to save some money if you’re willing to handle the short-distance pick-up and delivery yourself. If the destination city is in or near a major city or highly populated area, terminal-to-terminal transport is much easier to facilitate since it requires less drive time for you on the front and back end of the shipment.
How To Get An Estimate For Terminal-To-Terminal Transport?
It’s helpful when you contact a car shipping company to know and specify the type of services you need. If you simply ask for a price quote for shipping from point A to point B, you could be getting an estimate for door-to-door shipping using an enclosed carrier, both of which cost more than the standard open-air transport to a terminal. When you contact a prospective auto shipper to move your vehicle, ask about the price of hauling from terminal-to-terminal, if only to compare the price difference. If you want to maximize your savings, inquire about an open-air carrier for the job.
It’s also a good idea to ask about any potential discounts or specials that may be offered by a transporter before agreeing to go with their service. There’s a handful of companies, including A-1 Auto Transport, that has regular specials in addition to discount programs that may apply.
