Useful FAQ about Auto Vehicle Transport

Your shipping vehicle is very important section of equipment and if you’re planning a big move, you don’t want to put your car in the hands of any careless slob looking to make a few extra dollars you want it handled by experts. Even if you have organized on using car transport services, you may still be uneasy about the process. In order to have peace of mind so you can focus on more important things, here are a few answers to common questions people have about auto vehicle transport.

1) How long will the auto car transport pickup and delivery process take?

Typically a coast to coast trip takes 10 to 14 days. Shorter trips can take 3 to 10 days depending on where exactly you want the vehicle dropped off.

2) If I’m not home during the delivery time, what happens to my car?

Typically, good auto shipping companies contact you 24 hours prior to the delivery date to ensure that you will be home. But if you’re not home, the car can be left on the truck or dropped off at a nearby lot, depending on your specifications.

3) Is there any insurance offered by truck transport companies?

It varies from company to company, but a goodtruck transport company will insure your vehicle for the Blue Book value the entire time it is being transported on the shipping truck. There are exceptions to coverage, so in order to be 100 percent sure of what is covered and what is not, read the Shipping Order and Bill of Lading thoroughly. In addition, a condition report is done upon pickup. The same report is handed over to you at the drop off. You should review the report and inspect your car to make sure there aren’t any damages that weren’t there before.

4) Can I store stuff in my vehicle?

This is another thing that depends on the auto transport company and their specific policy. Many allow you to leave personal items in the vehicle, but they are not covered under the insurance. Only the vehicle itself is covered and the auto transporting company isn’t responsible for any damages that may occur to your items.

5) If my car doesn’t run, is the fee the same?

For many auto shipping companies, an extra fee is usually tacked on the bill for inoperable vehicles. It’s important to be upfront about the car’s true condition when you sign up for auto car transport, as you could incur even more fees if you are dishonest or neglect to inform the company that the vehicle doesn’t start.

All in all, if you are selecting to use auto transporting, you are making the right choice. It helps to save money in the long run, in addition to saving time and energy by not having to make difficult cross-country drives.
