How to prep for Auto Transport…

packed-car When preparing to work with any auto transport company, there are a few things to keep in mind. Shipping a vehicle takes time, money and energy. Oftentimes a lot more than what you thought it would. Budgeting and time management are crucial when shipping a car and can mean the difference between a great, cost-effective experience and a shipping experience that leaves you with a bad taste in your mouth and a hole in your wallet – not to mention an empty driveway. If you’re finding yourself in need of auto transport services, you’re going to have to plan ahead if you want to have a great shipping experience. Auto transportation is not for the lazy or for procrastinators; it is very hard to have a smooth auto transport experience when you wait till the last minute. Always Budget Budgeting is the most important thing that you could possibly do when you start shipping a car. While it may not be a huge cost compared to other things, but depending on the route and where you’re going it can add up. Fuel, distance, and route all play a role in the cost. Getting quotes will allow you to be able to budget the shipping in and make your life much easier. These are major factors in the price, and will affect how quickly your shipment will get picked up and how much you’ll end up paying too. Give Yourself Time Timeframes are important when shipping a car, particularly if you’re crunched for time and need to get things going as soon as possible. As you well know, waiting until the last minute is usually the worst thing you can do for many things, and auto transport is one of them. We suggest you start to plan a few weeks out, to give yourself enough time to cover all the bases, and make sure all the needs for your move are in place.
