All That you Need to Know About Car Shipping Time Frame

The shipping time frame is often a major concern of customers, and while vehicle transport
companies strive to meet the commitment, there’s no denial that trucking business is unpredictable.
Be it domestic or overseas shipping, a lot of factors come into play to determine the shipping time
frame of a vehicle. Whether you are shipping your vehicle for the first time or have prior experience,
it is imperative that you know everything about the factors that play a key role in deciding the
shipping time frame of vehicles. The blog post briefly covers the main components that influence
time frame in auto shipping. Read on.

Lead Time
The lead time or the number of hours the driver would take to deliver the vehicle is related to three
primary aspects. Let’s take a look.
Location - If the car is being shipped on common routes between major cities and hubs, the delivery
time would be less. It may, however, take the vehicle a significant amount of time to reach its
destination, if it has to cover small towns or remote areas.
Season - If you are shipping the vehicle in spring or time of the year when people move the most, you
are likely to end up paying more for the service.
Size of the Vehicle - If auto shipping company ships multiple vehicles in one trailer, the delivery time
would vary according to the size of the vehicle. Most car haulers can accommodate up to four SUVs in
big trailers, which means larger the vehicle, longer the lead time.

Transit Time
Auto transport companies use small car haulers for a short-distance move, which means the car will
be picked up and delivered in less time. If the move is long-distance, the company usually loads
vehicles in a large car hauler, which may increase the transit time. The type of trailer - open or
enclosed - also impacts the transit time.

Hours-of-Service (HOS) Regulation
The government imposes a daily driving limit of 11 hours on all commercial vehicles, which means a
driver can not cover more than 650 miles in one day. The shipping company can get team drivers to
deliver the vehicle in less time, but the service comes at an additional cost.

Final Words
The unpredictable nature of trucking business often makes it difficult for shipping companies to
commit a specific delivery time. There could be delays because of vehicle breakdown, weather or
other emergencies, which no auto shipping company can predict when promising a time frame to the
customer. While a shipping company can ensure minimum or no lag by maintaining its fleet of
vehicles and hiring experienced drivers, customers need to communicate their preferences such as a
specific delivery time or other requirements to assist the timely delivery of the vehicle. At EasyHaul,
