This service is often used by individuals or companies when moving to a new city or state, purchasing a vehicle online, or transporting a vehicle to a vacation destination. There are several options for automobile relocation, including open transport, enclosed transport, and door-to-door delivery. The cost of the service will vary depending on the distance of the move, the type of vehicle being transported, and the level of service selected.

- Passenger cars: These are the most common type of vehicles used for relocation and are suitable for individuals or small families.

- Trucks: Trucks are the largest type of vehicles used for relocation and are suitable for transporting large items or multiple rooms of furniture.
- Trailers: Trailers can be attached to a truck or van and are used to transport large items such as furniture, appliances, or vehicles.
- Moving Pods: Moving Pods are portable storage containers that can be loaded onto a truck and transported to a new location. They offer more space than a traditional moving truck.
- Specialty vehicles: Specialty vehicles such as tractor-trailers, flatbed trucks, and refrigerated trucks are used for specific types of relocation, such as moving oversized or perishable items.
How We Ship Your Car
When shipping a car, the process typically begins with the customer requesting a quote from the auto transport company. The quote will be based on the make and model of the vehicle, the pickup and delivery locations, and the type of transport service requested (open or enclosed transport, door-to-door delivery, etc.). Once the customer confirms the quote and the details of the shipment, the transport company will arrange for the vehicle to be picked up at the designated location.
Before the vehicle is picked up, it is important to thoroughly clean the car, remove all personal items and valuables, and document the condition of the car with pictures. This documentation will be used to confirm the condition of the car at the time of pickup in case of any damage during transport.
Once the vehicle is picked up, it is loaded onto a specialized transport truck, and secured for transport. The transport truck will then take the vehicle to the destination location. The car will be unloaded and inspected for damages.
If the customer has chosen door-to-door delivery, the vehicle will be delivered directly to the customer’s address, otherwise, the customer will have to pick up the car from a terminal or designated location.
It’s important to note that most auto transport companies offer insurance for the vehicle during transport, but it’s always good to check and confirm with the company before shipping.
Air and sea freight of transporting cars
Air and sea freight are different ways of transporting cars from one place to another.
Air freight is the method in which the car is transported by plane, which is usually faster than sea freight, and is often used to transport cars that need to maintain their quality or that need to maintain the validity period. But it costs more than sea freight, and it needs higher weight at least.
Sea freight is the method in which the car is transported on a freight boat, which is usually cheaper than air freight and is often used to transport cars that need a large amount of freight or heavy or bulky cars.
Shipping type, shipping period and your budget should be considered when choosing between air and sea freight for cars.
