In the auto transport world there are many types of services within each company, and each company may vary. Knowing what each service provides will help you no matter if you are a single car owner or run a car dealership. Auto transport has many services to help you get your vehicle where it needs to go, and each service listed here is something Suncoast Auto Transport offers to its clients.
Door To Door
This auto transport service lets you give the company an address for pickup and delivery rather than having to meet the carrier at a terminal. While door to door services are becoming more common there are still quite a few places that only offer terminal services. This means you will need to drop off and pick up your car at a specified station which can be quite inconvenient for someone who either doesn’t know the area well or is far from an approved terminal. Even if the address you provide is in a hard to access area for the carrier truck, the driver will be in contact with you to work out a convenient delivery.
Enclosed Auto Shipping
Enclosed auto shipping is exactly what it sounds like; an enclosed carrier to protect your vehicle. This option is normally chosen by someone with a car such as an antique or a specialty vehicle that needs to arrive in the same conditions as it was given. Even though of course this is the expectation with every vehicle shipped, an enclosed carrier has a better guarantee for the customer giving them peace of mind.
Open Auto Shipping
Open auto transport service is the most common and are the carriers you can see on the highway traveling to a car dealer. A lot of people use this service as it is cheaper than enclosed shipping and can at times be faster thanks to more workload getting carriers on the road quicker.
Tracking, Inspections & More
Every shipping company should offer inspections on pickup and delivery. This is a way to make sure if any damage is done during shipping there can be an insurance claim. Inspections are a must and if a company doesn’t give them you should find a different shipper. While inspections and insurance are a must, tracking is more of a customer convenience service.
