If you don’t want to hassle with moving your car to a different part of the state or country yourself, a transportation company can do it for you. But, how long will it take them to do it? We address the most common question and a simple way to choose the right transportation company for a stress-free experience.
Distance Traveled: A Rule of Thumb
It can be challenging for a transportation company to guarantee delivery on a specific day, but a reputable company will be able to give you a window of time that you can expect your vehicle to arrive. If you ask 5 different companies when you can expect your car to be delivered, they may give you 5 different answers (which would drive anyone crazy that’s on a tight schedule!) Try to give your carrier as much lead-time as possible. As a rule of thumb, shipping your vehicle from point A to point B (from coast to coast) will take between one to two weeks. You can gauge how long your vehicle will take based on less or more distance your vehicle is traveling from there.
Are My Delivery Dates Accurate?
No, all dates given are estimates
and projections. For this reason, we ask that you give us the earliest possible
date you would be willing to release the vehicle, even though it may not be
your preferred date.
We put you in direct contact with your carrier and the carrier will also typically call you the afternoon or evening before your pick-up and delivery (they won’t just show up unannounced, and if they do we want to hear about it). However, carriers are out on the road battling traffic, weather and any number of other factors that can and do throw it off their pickup and delivery projections from time to time.
If the projected dates we give you come and you are unable to make contact with your carrier, please call our office immediately so that we may help resolve the situation.
