When looking for an experienced auto transport company, there are a few factors you would need to consider. When you ship your vehicle, there are some important things to consider. Here are a few options that experienced auto transport companies use:
Door-to-door shipping or terminal-to-terminal shipping
With door-to-door shipping, a driver will pick up a vehicle from your home and drop it off at its destination. Terminal-to-terminal is a less convenient method than door-to-door shipping and is less expensive.
This method of shipping is the industry standard in South Africa. Instead of being in an enclosed container, the vehicles are on an open trailer. These trailers do expose vehicles to the elements but we take extra care to ensure that we do not take risks during extreme weather.
If you are short on time, you can ask the company to expedite your vehicle’s delivery.
There is so much to consider when transporting a vehicle and this could become overwhelming. Intercity Auto Movers do their best to make the car shipping process a stress free one.
What factors affect car shipping rates?
- Delivery and pickup dates – the more flexible you are with pickup and drop-off dates, the less you pay.
- The size of vehicle – smaller and lighter vehicles are cheaper to ship than larger vehicles. A non-runner will cost more to ship than a running vehicle.
- Distance – the further the distance, the more you will pay
