How to Transport a Limousine?

Though you don't often see a limousine being transported, some companies may be in need of a limousine transportation service. While transporting a limousine is highly unusual and not often seen, it can be accomplished. But because of their length and size dimensions, it can be a difficult process. If for some reason, you are in need of limousine transportation services, you should be aware of the following:

All Limousine Sizes Can Cause Issues

It doesn't matter if it's just a regular stretch limo or a super stretch limo; it will involve additional steps to be able to load it and unload it onto or off a trailer. This is especially true if it's a special type of limo such as a SUV limo or a Hummer limo.

Depending on the size of the limousine, some may not be able to be placed on a regular open or enclosed car transport trailer, meaning that they will have to be placed on a flatbed trailer instead.

It'll Cost Much More

Transporting a limousine will cost much more no matter what. The two main reasons for its extra costs are that:

  • It will require the use of a flatbed trailer;
  • There won't be the possibility of transporting multiple vehicles at once.

Flatbed trailers are not used often for transporting vehicles, which means that they won't be as easy to find. In addition, because multiple vehicles won't be able to be transported at once, the auto transport carrier and/or broker won't be able to save any money. If you need more than one limousine transported, you'll need two different drivers.

Inform the Auto Transport Company at the Start

Before you talk to them about anything else, you need to inform the auto transport company, which will most likely be an auto transport broker, that you need a limousine transported. Some auto transport companies will turn it down because they don't have the right equipment, so before you waste your time, as well as their time, let them know right at the start.

Get Multiple Quotes

Since transporting limousines is not that common, you should make sure that you definitely get a few different quotes from companies. There's not really an industry rate set for limousine transportation, so you should see how varied the prices are. If you have the need to transport multiple limousines, see if you can negotiate some sort of discount. If another auto transport company has given you a cheaper quote, ask them if they will be able to match it. Remember though that the cheapest price is not always the best option.

You will need to provide specifics to the auto transport company about the limousine, so make sure that you have the make, model, and year. In addition, make sure that you know its measurements, particularly its length.

Transporting a limousine or multiple limousines is definitely possible, but it does require a bit more planning. A-1 Auto Transport can provide you with expert assistance with your all of your limousine transportation needs. Contact us today for your free no obligation quote!
