What are the Tips for Transporting Fleet Vehicles?

If you're a company that operates a fleet of vehicles, such as a rental car company, a construction company, and so forth, one of the issues that you may run into is in how to best ship multiple vehicles at the same time.

This is especially challenging for many because, not only does it involve multiple vehicles that need to be transported, but oftentimes, fleet vehicles are not standard types of vehicles. Despite seeming like a daunting task, the following tips will help to ensure that you're able to transport fleet vehicles with minimal complications.

Know the Types of Vehicles Being Shipped

You need to make sure that you specify the exact types of vehicles that are being shipped to the auto transport company. This is something that you should do even before you contact a company. It's important to write down every vehicle's:

  • Make.
  • Model.
  • Year.

Furthermore, when relevant, such as for cargo vans, you will also need the sub-models. Having this information will allow you to be able to get far more accurate quotes from the auto transport company and to follow up with them on shipping time estimates and other various logistics.

Know Your Vehicle Identifiers.

Because fleet vehicles are often similar in nature, such as being all-white cargo vans, you will need some identifiers of each specific vehicle so that your delivery doesn't get confused with another's. The best way to not experience a mix-up is to let the auto transport company know the VIN number of each vehicle, as well as for you to also keep a record of it. Other identifiers such as color and shape can also be extremely useful.

Consider the Shipping Time.

You will need to consider the shipping time involved with transporting a fleet of vehicles. If you need more vehicles shipped than can be transported on a single truck, the shipping time will usually be longer than usual. Your best bet is to plan ahead so that you're not stuck relying on vehicles that haven't arrived yet. The auto transport company will do their best to give you an accurate shipping estimate.

Make Sure to Get a Discount. 

No matter what, you should always make sure that the auto transport company gives you a discount for your fleet vehicles. You should not be charged per individual vehicle, but instead should get a multi-vehicle discount. This is standard practice if you're shipping a large amount of vehicles or even just a few. If an auto transport company doesn't offer the discount on their own, make sure to ask them about it. If they refuse, choose another company.
