Interstate transportation is a very common service in the industry, it allows customer to transport their vehicles between any two points in the country. The service is as easy as calling an agent, providing all details, booking the service, and wait for arrival, however luxury cars require a bit more protection in order to safeguard them from possible transportation mishaps. It is always recommended to ship these cars via enclosed carriers, as these carriers provide the proper security measures for these cars in order to be shipped. By being secured inside one of these carriers, cars are protected from dust, weather, and any other hazardous material that can hit the cars along the way.
Another important thing owners must consider is the insurance that is provided for the cars during transit, all carriers provide full insurance for cars, however enclosed carrier offer the maximum coverage. Although the insurance will cover if any damage occurs, it is always best to protect your vehicle as much as possible, especially if damages can cost a fortune. Always make sure when booking you are provided a copy of insurance paperwork, in case of any mishaps.
Depending on the length of transportation, transit times can range from 3 days to 10 days. Cross country trips are the longest between 7-10 days, however it also depends on how many pick up/deliveries driver has along the way, and how many delays driver encounters, whether if it is due to road conditions or customer's fault. Make sure you always plan ahead for delays, as we can only prepare for delays, however we cannot avoid them in some cases.
When you are looking to ship a luxury car, always make sure you provide as many details as possible, as regular security measures may not fit your type of car. Sometimes the low clearance of these cars can interfere with the safety straps and can scratch the bumper, therefore make sure your agent knows exactly what they're dealing with in order to avoid these issues.
