3 Things to Know About Shipping Car Cross Country
Tips to ensure you have a successful move.
We believe in tailor-made car shipping solutions. There are numerous factors to consider when it comes to auto transport.
Here are some of the factors you need to take into account when it comes to getting the best experience:
The most cost-effective way to move your car is to book as far in advance as possible. Flexibility will get you the lowest possible price on your auto relocation.
You also have to take into account the seasons. Different seasons come with higher costs due to weather conditions and public demand. When demand is high, expect to pay higher transport costs.
The most common and affordable way to transport type is open auto transport.
For luxury, high-value cars, it’s better to opt for enclosed transport. We strongly recommend opting for enclosed transport for your shipping car across country service if your car is considered a classic, is valued at more than $50,000, or if its ground clearance is four inches or lower.
Coast-to-coast auto relocation can take up to two weeks. It’s important to be aware of this when organizing your move so you can plan accordingly.
Depending on the service you choose, we can expedite your auto relocation and pick up your car in as little as two business days.
