Plan Ahead for Vehicle Shipping

Oregon Auto Transport | Washington Auto Shippers

Many questions are raised while shipping a vehicle especially if you have never done it before. You may wonder how long it will take your car to arrive at its destination. Vehicle transport companies will give you an estimated delivery time for your car or truck.

But you must keep in mind that this is an estimate. Just like with mailing a letter there is never a gauruntee on when your letter will be received.

There are many unforeseen errors that can occur along the way. Such as:

Traffic delays

Vehicle breakdown

The time it will take at each stop

And weather conditions

You must be prepared for delays and if you need your vehicle at a specific time or by a certain date then it is suggested to ship it earlier than needed just in case. If you have a car show to get your vehicle to on Thursday then you should have your vehicle shipped to you on Monday or Tuesday just in case.

You must have patience with your vehicle transporter because there are things they just can’t plan for even though they are as prepared as they possibly can be.

You should have communication with your vehicle transporter so that you can have updates on the location of your vehicle and so that you can be prepared for the pickup of your car.

To help things run smoothly you should also set a pickup location that is easy to find and has enough space for the transporter to maneuver around easily. The more accessible the area is the faster it will be for them to drop your vehicle off.

If you plan to ship your vehicle remember to ship it early if its need by a specific date, make the meet up location a simple one and also have patience and communication with your vehicle transporter.
