Vehicle Shipping Service - Tips by Dellcy Company
Here are some tips for using
vehicle transport services to ship your vehicle:
- Plan ahead and book your transport as far in advance as possible, especially during peak seasons.
- Be sure to have clear communication with the transport company about the pickup and delivery locations, as well as any specific instructions or requests you may have.
- Consider the type of transport you want, such as an open trailer or an enclosed trailer. An open trailer is usually more affordable, but an enclosed trailer offers more protection for your vehicle.
- Consider the type of service you want, such as terminal-to-terminal or door-to-door. Terminal-to-terminal service involves dropping off and picking up your vehicle at a shipping terminal, while door-to-door service involves the transport company picking up and delivering your vehicle directly to and from your desired locations.
- Make sure the transport company has the necessary equipment to safely load and transport your vehicle, such as a hydraulic lift or winch.
- Consider the size and weight of your vehicle when choosing a transport company, as some may have size or weight restrictions.
- If you have a rare or high-value vehicle, consider using a transport company that specializes in transporting such vehicles and can offer additional protection and insurance.
- Consider the type of payment the transport company accepts and whether you need to put down a deposit.
- Keep all important documents, such as the title and registration, with you during transport, and consider making copies in case the originals are lost or damaged.
- Be prepared for potential delays, as shipping a vehicle can be unpredictable due to factors such as weather and road conditions.
