Cars have become an essential element in our lives, and driving is part of many people’s daily routine. Today, a car is one of the most convenient modes of transportation in the US. 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.
Embarking on a long-distance trip could only make things unnecessarily overwhelming. There is a better solution than driving – shipping a car.
Shipping a car means safety
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, ranch-lands, mountains, and charming small towns, singing along to our favorite tunes, makes our hearts beat faster.
However, 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.
By sending your vehicle with a professional auto shipper, you’ll save it from unnecessary wear and tear, possible breakdowns or even accidents.
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.
Auto transport saves time
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. Somewhere along the road, you may find yourself stuck in traffic or get a flat tire, which will inevitably add to your travel time.
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 stress less, hand your car over to a car shipping company, hop on a plane, and receive the vehicle at the new destination.
- 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.
It’s important to keep in mind that all dates in auto transport are estimates. As you already know, being on the road is unpredictable. There are many factors that can delay a truck on the road. Such can be late customers, traffic, bad weather, and sometimes truck failures.
Car shipping is affordable
Perhaps you think it is expensive to ship a car. Now, think about all the expenses associated with driving – gas, lodging, and eating across the country, as well as any possible car failures or even accidents. 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 paid vacation days.
Several variables decide the final cost to ship a vehicle. Such are car’s make and model, the distance and the type of carrier, as well as whether the car is running or not and has any modifications. However, the current supply and demand situation is an important deciding factor.
The vehicle’s make and model and the distance set the base price for shipping. However, they are not deciding factors. The type of auto transport carrier and the vehicle condition always contribute to the price. If you are flexible with your shipping dates, you can often choose a lower than the current market price.
Auto logistics is a dynamic industry and current market prices ship vehicles in the appropriate time frame. However, if you are not in a hurry choosing to work with a lower budget is always an option.
