Transporting a Vehicle: What You Need to Know

CarsArrive |

Moving is stressful enough without having to worry about how to get your vehicle from point A to point B. Cross country and long distance moves can be especially challenging, and figuring out how to best move your vehicle might be overwhelming. Luckily, there are qualified vehicle shipping services that know how to effectively ship a car safely, while saving you money.

Auto Transport Benefits

Many people might consider driving their own car, but there are actually a lot of benefits to using specialized transportation services. Here are a few:

1. Money Savings

Often, you'll find transporting a vehicle can save you money overall -- not to mention, you can avoid spending a week of your valuable vacation time just on driving. It may also be worth the investment for you to not clock so many miles on your vehicle. Moving a small vehicle across country (from NYC to San Francisco) can, in many cases, cost around $1,000. Shorter moves, like from Texas to Illinois are typically half this price. And, if you move in the winter, versus the summer, you will typically save a couple hundred dollars.

2. Safety Guarantees

Many transport companies offer safety commitments and will ensure your vehicle is shipped safely and efficiently. To ensure a safe delivery, many companies discourage leaving cargo in your vehicle (though some allow up to 50 lbs. of cargo). If your car is especially valuable, you may want to consider an enclosed transport for added security.

3. Ease and Lack of Stress

Not having to worry about getting your car to your new destination can alleviate a ton of stress on the moving process. This gives you more time to ensure the rest of your move runs smoothly. Professional vehicle transport services can help rid worry about moving your car when relocating. Invest in a quality service for affordable, efficient transport.
