A car is often our fortress of comfort. It continues to be an intrinsic part of our lives. Today, the car is one of the most convenient modes of transportation. But it can also become a logistical issue when relocating across the country. When you move long distance, there are hundreds of things to keep in mind and embarking on a long haul drive could only make things unnecessarily overwhelming. That’s why there is a better solution than driving – shipping a car with an auto transport company like Corsia Logistics. Below, are our top 3 reasons, why shipping a car with a professional auto transporter is a good idea!
The desire to drive everywhere is a big part of the American culture. And driving across the country sounds like an exciting adventure to many. Just the idea of an open road, navigating the spiderweb of highways, passing canyons, ranchlands, mountains and charming small towns, singing along to our favorite tunes, makes our hearts beat faster.
But cross-country travel has its risks. There are reckless drivers, wildlife, and weather conditions that all seem to conspire against even the most responsible drivers.That’s why, if you have to travel more than 200-300 hundred miles, it is safer to ship your car with an auto transport company.
By sending your vehicle with a professional auto shipper, you’ll save it from unnecessary wear and tear, possible breakdowns, accidents and damaging weather conditions. Also, all legally authorized shippers are required to have a liability insurance and should provide you with a copy of their insurance certificate, should you ask for it. Depending on your budget and the level of protection you want for your vehicle, you’ll be able to choose between open or enclosed transport. Additionally, you can request top load for your vehicle to ensure against possible leaks from other cars. Most vehicles are transported via open-air trailers, which means they may get exposed to the dangers of the road while in transport.
Driving a car across the country will take days. A thousand miles might not seem so bad on the map, but once you hit the road there will be mountains, deserts, and seas to cross. Literally! Moreover, when you start adding in the time for food and rest stops, a whole new time frame builds up. Spending days on the road when you could use this time to take care of other important tasks or just enjoy your family and friends doesn’t make much sense.
To save time and relax, it is better to hand your car over to a car shipping company, hop on a plane, and receive the vehicle at the new destination. Total vehicle transport time consists of pick up window and delivery window. Pick-up window takes 1-5 business days and starts from the first available date that you designate. It is not part of the vehicle’s transit time. Delivery window is the time it takes to transport your car to its final destination, once it’s been picked up. It mainly depends on distance.
If you are on a tight timeline and need your vehicle to be delivered on or by an exact date, you can request expedited shipping. Guaranteed delivery is a premium service, hence will cost more.
Perhaps you think it is quite expensive to ship a car. Now, think about all the expenses associated with driving, lodging, and eating across the country and then compare that to your car shipping rate. Expenses can add up quickly when you are on the road and you never know what can happen (emergencies and breakdowns). Factor in the time off work, especially if you are out of the paid vacation days.
On the other hand, when you request a quote from a car shipping company you get an all-inclusive price, rather than multiple costs. Therefore, keep it practical and efficient and hire a vehicle shipping company to transport your vehicle safely and securely to your new location.
