Common Questions About Door To Door Car Shipping

Door to door car shippingQuestion:   Does door to door car shipping really mean that the truck driver will pick up from my home address?
Answer:  Yes, we always ask for your specific pickup and delivery addresses.  If the carrier can get right to the addresses you provide, in a legal and safe manner, they will.

Question:  What would prohibit door to door service?
Answer: If the area you live in has restrictions regarding large trucks, or if there simply isn’t enough room to safely turn around or maneuver.  (keep in mind these are huge multi car carrier trucks).

Question: What happens if they can’t safely pick up or deliver to my home address?
Answer:  You simply make arrangements with the driver to meet at a nearby location where the carrier can safely get in and out.  This might be at a local grocery store, or school parking lot.  Or, talk to one of our representatives about special arrangements.  In some cases a smaller transport vehicle or tow truck and take your vehicle from the truck, directly to your door.

Question:  I live in the Los Angeles area, is door to door car shipping to L.A. possible?
Answer: Again, this depends on the specific location, however Los Angeles is one of our most active car shipping routes, so your driver can provide a list of common areas which are safe for car delivery or pickup.

Question:  Do I need to be there personally for delivery?
Answer:  No, the carrier will contact whomever you tell us to contact, whether it is you, a friend, family member, or even a dealer.  Someone simply needs to be present on both ends to sign the Bill of Lading.

Michael began working in the Car Shipping Industry back in 2002, starting as a Salesperson for AAA Discount Auto & Truck Transporters in Los Angeles, CA. In 2008, he opened his own office under the name "Honesty First Auto Transport" where he pioneered the movement within the Auto Transport industry of not charging the customer a deposit up front. Many car shipping companies followed his lead and no longer require a deposit up front. In 2011, in an effort to further improve the customer experience for anyone shipping a car to another state, he changed the name of his company to Safe-Direct Car Shipping and created the auto shipping industry's ONLY Damage Free Guarantee. His hope is that other Auto Transporters will, once again, follow his lead and create similar safeguards for their customers (and he'll be happy to re-emerge once again in a few years with the next great improvement). He is also proud to announce that Safe-Direct Car Shipping has become the #1 company on Transport Reviews over the past 2 years.
