Using Waco Vehicle Transport Companies
- Do It Yourself - There are essentially three primary ways to move a vehicle. The first is the do it yourself method, which can be either driving the car or loading it onto a trailer to haul. While driving can be a good option for shorter distances - that is what cars are for, after all - long trips put a lot of stress on a vehicle. Potential mechanical issues or worse yet, a breakdown on the road, are possibilities when you drive or tow the vehicle yourself. Most people that drive or tow their own vehicles do so because it saves money compared to the cost of hiring a company to move a car. Of course, when you’re doing all the driving, you also need to factor in your own time, as well as any food, lodging and gas costs along the way.
Here are some tips to help you prepare your vehicle for a long trip if you do plan on making a long drive yourself.
- Car Shipping Company - While to DIY method may be a good fit for some customers, most prefer to work with an auto transport company, which has several advantages. The first being that it requires no time on your part, except for the pre-loading inspection and actually receiving the vehicle. Another benefit is that no miles get put on the odometer when you hire a car shipper to handle the job for you. By law, auto transport companies have to carry insurance that covers their shipments, which means that potential damages are covered when you’re working with a licensed transporter.
- Driveaway Services - Driveaway services are part way between hiring a shipper and driving the vehicle yourself. Essentially, you hire a driver from a company, who then drives your vehicle from location to destination. While not for everyone, driveaway services have gotten more popular in recent years. The advantages are that it’s cheaper than hiring a shipper and you don’t have to invest your own time on the driving side. The disadvantage is that you’ll still log the mileage on your car and have to trust another person behind the wheel for the duration of the trip.

As the owner, you should make sure all the tires are inflated and the gas tank is a quarter full. Any more and it can pose a fire hazard, while less may be too little to drive the car on and off the ramp. Also, your personal belongings and any movable objects should not be left in the vehicle, since they can move around and cause damage.
