In most routes we are able to have a driver pick up a car within 48 hours of booking a reservation. If for any reason your vehicle is a little bit off the beaten path we might ask for a few more days cushion just in case.
Drivers drive around 600 miles a day, however keep in mind that loading and unloading vehicles does take time as well. As a general rule any cross country move (from coast to coast) is generally around 7 days while any transport from North to South is from 3-5 days. To find out about how long your exact route will take please ask your designed representative.
Absolutely, all our truckers are fully insured bumper to bumper with no deductible for the customer. Drivers will perform a full inspection of the vehicle at pick up and also at delivery which will be signed by both parties. Once a carrier is selected we would be more than happy to send you their certificate of insurance.
Technically auto carriers do not have a license for carrying personal or household goods, that being said we are aware that people are moving and do allow 100lbs of belongings to be put inside the vehicle. If you need more for whatever reason please contact us as exceptions can be made.
Our company takes pride in not charging our customers up front; this means that there will be no payment before your car is delivered. However payment is split into two: A small fee (usually around $150 depending on the transport) will be charged on a credit card that we authorize once car is picked up but don’t process until delivery, and the remaining balance is due to the carrier at delivery via cash, cashier’s check or money order.
While this is a very uncommon thing in the transport industry we always like to be prepared for any scenario. In the rare case where any sort of damage is done to a vehicle the most important thing is to always note it down on the bill of lading as this is would be the evidence that it occurred during transit so a claim can be filed after.
We have a large variety of trucks from small flatbeds for shorter routes to large double decker carriers for longer trips to enclosed trucks for a more private experience. Depending on what sort of transport you are looking for have the peace of mind that we will have the appropriate equipment for you!
Absolutely not! We deal with one truck and one trucker for all of our shipments. The same carrier that picks up your car will be the one delivering your car. We do not partake on terminal moves either where your car is dropped off and picked up by someone else. Your vehicle will not change trucks or truckers; once your car is picked up it will be a straight shot to its destination.
While some carriers do possess GPS tracking there are also many that don’t, but fear not, we will always provide you with the carrier’s phone number so you can check on the progress of your transportation and of course feel free to contact your representative or any other member of our staff for updates as well.
We are aware that as customers you always want things to go perfect as do we. However, we ask for your understanding as trucking is a hard business to pinpoint an exact time due to many factors. What we have found that works best is for our carriers to work out a window with the customer and then call them when they are about an hour away. We are also aware that some customers are working with certain deadlines and factors like flights come into play and we always do our best to prioritize our customer’s timelines and work around them.
Most of our customers live in very residential streets and you will be surprised how close to your residence our carriers can get! In the case where the driver cannot get right to your front door he might ask you to meet him at a nearby street or parking lot where loading and unloading might be easier.
