The Main Methods for Shipping Any Vehicle!
Did you know that according to some estimates, a car shipping cost or a
light truck would only cost about $850 to ship from NYC to San Francisco,
although driving it there would cost nearly $2,200 in gas (let alone
maintenance charges and travel expenses)? Obviously, car shipping
companies are the favored system for vehicle hauling, but these
businesses offer diverse methods for their services. You can have your
vehicle shipped by itself, or you can have it sent with other cars to save
money. The real question is which vehicle shipping method is the best?
Multi-carriers that are used for Professional Auto Transport are an
inexpensive option, but on the other hand, they do take longer for
vehicle transport. This is because the carrier will probably have multiple
stops to make as other cars on the truck are being picked up and
dropped at their specific locations. A good comparison and explanation
is that imagine you are taking a taxi or the bus. In this case, the bus is
cheaper, but because it is serving many stops, it tends to be slower.
Hiring an enclosed carrier to transport your vehicle is safer, but as stated
in the USA Today, it is 60% more expensive than the other methods. If
you're shipping a vintage Mustang that you've put your heart and soul
into restoring. In this case, it is the best method for you. In open aired
carriers, cars are more likely to sustain damage from their journey as
they are exposed to the elements and normal road conditions. An
enclosed carrier offers extra protection from both the elements and
road hazards, but their car shipping cost is high.
Unlike Multicar carriers that usually carry 8 to 11 vehicles, a hot shot
carrier, which is available open or enclosed, is designed to transport 1 to
3 cars at a time. Due to the limited number of stops the hot shot has to
make, transit times can be significantly shorter using a hot shot, but the
cost is usually very high.
Anyways, regardless of whatever methodology you chose, it's a
magnificent idea to give the vehicle shipping company all of your contact
information. And even remember to keep your phone on and with you
at all times, because they'll likely call within 12 to 24 hours prior to
schedule your final delivery.
