If only shipping a car across the country, or even across the world, was a one stop solution.
Instead, it’s an experience that requires attention to your personal needs, your unique car, and your location. That’s why choosing the best car transport carrier on #Motherload is important. Below are six main types of vehicle transport services to help you decide which one is ideal for your situation.
1. Car Haul Carrier (offered on Motherload)
With a car haul service, your vehicle is essentially put up on the elevated platform of a car carrier trailer, usually accompanied by other vehicles. There are 3 car wedges, nextgen or highrail, etc. The auto transport driver will then drive the vehicle to a destination location, from which you can easily pick your vehicle up.
A car hauler is an excellent choice for long, cross-country shipping. It’s very safe and the most popular method used by many car-owners to ensure their vehicle makes it to the destination safely.
2. Personal Vehicle Shipping (not offered on Motherload)
Personal auto shipping is a very similar service to a car haul, except it’s aimed at transporting individual cars. You can opt for this if you don’t want your car to share the ride with others (even though there’s no danger in that), or if you have a more unique model which may not fit on a car haul.
Basically, it operates the same way, by driving the car up on an elevated platform, then having the carrier drive to your destination. Personal vehicle shipping is great because it allows for door-to-door delivery, so you can get your car delivered right in front of your workplace or residence.
3. Expedited (offered on Motherload)
Expedited car haul is basically the same thing as the first method, only faster. Naturally, expedited shipping is a tad more costly, but well worth it if you need your vehicle to arrive fast at the destination.
You can also purchase expedited personal vehicle shipping, in most cases. Contact your preferred vehicle transport company to learn more.
4. Drive Away(not offered on Motherload)
As the name suggests, the drive away service lets you hire a professional and seasoned driver to drive your vehicle from one place to another for you. One downside of this is that it will increase your mileage, but other than that, it’s another excellent option for transport.
Since there’s someone driving your car, that makes it a bit safer, as the experienced driver will be able to think fast and problem-solve while at the wheel. And of course, this means you can have your car delivered anywhere you wish.
5. Enclosed Critical (offered on Motherload)
An enclosed critical vehicle transportation service is like a car haul or a personal vehicle shipping service. The only catch is that instead of having your car travel in open air, it will be enclosed in a secure box that will keep it safe from the elements, dust, dirt and insects.
Enclosed transportation is a great option if you are looking to ship a classic car — or, for a sports car owner.
6. Home Delivery
Also referred to as “Last Mile Delivery,” this home delivery service is a nice final touch to the other shipping services listed above. This means that no matter how the vehicle reaches the destination city, an experienced driver will take it and drive the last bit of the journey.
The major benefit here is that you don’t have to go pick it up. It’s very useful if you have a busy working schedule.
