There are many factors that will determine which car transportation company you choose. Many people think that vehicle transportation is a simple task, but this is not always the case. There are lots of vehicle transportation companies out there which means a lot of different options. Some cover everything from interstate or local transport, to specialising in transporting old vintage vehicles.
When Looking for a Quote Here are a Few Things to Think About:
- How far will your car need to be transported? Is it interstate or local?
- Is the pick-up and delivery dates flexible or fixed?
- Does your vehicle require special transportation, like an enclosed carrier for a vintage car?
Remember that while important pricing is not the only thing to consider. Always read the fine print, what kind of insurance do they offer, how is the vehicle transported and are there any hidden costs?
Why bother with Vehicle Transportation?
Why would you opt to have your vehicle transported locally or interstate when you could drive it yourself? The most simple answer is that quite often you don’t have the time to drive it there yourself. While paying to have your vehicle transported will cost you immediately, you will ultimately save money in the long run. You will not have to pay for fuel, add any additional un-needed wear and tear to your car or receive any damage during transit.
Depot to Depot vs Door to Door
In terms of cost depot to depot will always be the cheapest option and sometimes might be the only option for you. Luckily there are numerous depot drop off locations around Australia and there is bound to be one close to you. By dropping your vehicle off at the depot you can choose a time best suited for you and there’s no need to wait around for the pick-up “window” of time.
Door to door will obviously cost you more and someone will have to be present at both pick-up and delivery to sign off. There are certain factors you will need to take into consideration when getting your vehicle picked up. Your location will determine whether it’s possible, as the carrier will have to be able to get your car up onto the trailer, narrow or unmade roads may prohibit this from happening.
