Using Tyler Auto Transport Services
- 3 Ways To Move Your Car - There are three main methods for moving a car. The first, which you may be considering, is the do-it-yourself route. We’re all pretty familiar with this: you simply drive the car yourself. The downside to driving your car over a long distance that a lot of miles get put on the vehicle, creating the potential for mechanical failure. Factor in the time spent driving, the cost of food and lodging, and time missed from work and it can become expensive quickly. Drive away services have become more popular of late, mainly because they offer a cheaper alternative to standard car shipping. When you hire a driveaway service, they assign someone to pick up your car and drive it to its final destination. While these companies can be an affordable alternative to car shipping, you still run the risk of mechanical issues and high mileage. The third option is having your car shipped with a company on a transport carrier, which puts no miles on the vehicle.

- Enclosed Carriers - There are two types of primary carriers used in the vehicle transport industry: open and enclosed. The majority of auto shipping happens on the open, multi-car carriers that can move several vehicles at once. Because the cost is split among more customers, the individual rate for each customer is lower. The only drawback of using an open carrier is that your vehicle is vulnerable to cold weather conditions, extreme heat, and potential damage from road debris. The other option is to use an enclosed carrier, which completely covers and protects the car every step of its journey. Enclosed auto transport is preferable if you’re shipping a high-value, exotic, vintage or classic car-basically, any vehicle that carries a high value is worth the extra level of protection.
- Get A Recommendation - It’s not always easy to get a recommendation you can trust when it comes to shipping a car. Plenty of websites are more than happy to share their customer testimonials with you, however, they don’t always tell the full story. There are some professionals in related industries that can put you in touch with a reliable company to move your car though. Real estate agents and property managers sometimes deal with auto shippers if they have a client that’s relocating to the area. Similarly, car rental agencies and dealerships regularly do business with auto transporters and can clue you into some of the better local options. The companies listed in the section below are the top ranked auto movers in and around Smith County that move cars in Tyler.

Shipping Luxury and Classic Cars in Tyler
Every so often, a client will complain that their car received a dent or a scratch during transport. Unfortunately, as long as the vehicle is transported on an open carrier, such situations are inevitable. Open carriers are not designed to protect cars from flying objects or from unfavorable weather. They’re created to ship as many cars as possible at the lowest possible price.
If you want to protect your luxury or classic car from outside forces, then you can book an enclosed auto carrier instead. This type of truck covers for the open one’s weaknesses by covering the cargo, so it’s safe from flying objects. However, because of this cover, its carrying capacity is limited which increases the price of booking one.
Therefore, every car owner must decide between a cheaper transportation service and one that offers more protection. For more details, call today.
