Cars have become an essential element in our lives, and driving is part our daily routine. Today, a car is one of the most convenient modes of transportation in the US. But it can also become a logistical challenge, when relocating across the country. When you move long distance there are hundreds of things to keep in mind.
Embarking on a long-distance trip could only make things unnecessarily overwhelming. There is a better solution than driving – shipping a car.
Shipping a car means safety
The desire to drive everywhere is a big part of the American culture, and driving across the country sounds like an exciting adventure to many. Just the idea of an open road, navigating the spiderweb of highways, passing canyons, ranch-lands, mountains, and charming small towns, singing along to our favorite tunes, makes our hearts beat faster.
However, cross-country travel has its risks. There are reckless drivers, wildlife, and weather conditions that all seem to conspire against even the most responsible drivers. That is why, if you have to travel more than 200-300 hundred miles, it is safer to ship your car.
Depending on your budget, and the level of protection you prefer, you can choose between open or enclosed transport.
Auto transport saves time
Driving a car across the country will take days. A thousand miles might not seem so bad on the map, but once you hit the road there will be mountains, deserts, and seas to cross. Literally!
Moreover, when you start adding in the time for food and rest stops, a whole new time frame builds up. Somewhere along the road, you may find yourself stuck in traffic or get a flat tire, which will inevitably add to your travel time.
Spending days on the road, when you could use this time to take care of other important tasks or just enjoy your family and friends, doesn’t make much sense.
- To save time and stress less, hand your car key to a car shipping company.
- Hop on a plane, and receive your vehicle at the new destination.
- If you need your vehicle delivered on or by an exact date, request expedited shipping.
It is important to keep in mind that all dates in auto transport are estimated. As you understand, being on the road is unpredictable.
Car shipping is affordable
Perhaps you think it is expensive to ship a car. Now think about all the expenses associated with driving – gas, lodging and food, as well as any possible car failures. And then compare that to your car shipping rate.
Expenses can add up quickly when you are on the road and you never know what emergency may arise. Factor in the time off work, especially if you are out of paid vacation days.
Several variables decide the final cost to ship a vehicle. Such are car’s make and model, the distance and the type of carrier, as well as whether the car is running or not and has any modifications. However, the current supply and demand is the final deciding factor. Auto logistics is a dynamic industry and only current market price will ship a car in a timely manner. However, if you are not in a hurry choosing to work with a lower budget is always an option.
