Types of Car Shipping Services
With Flat Price, you will be able to choose from several different delivery options. Pick those that fit your needs best while taking into account your budget, your schedule, and the type and state of your car.
Door to Door and Terminal to Terminal Delivery
Flat Price offers two pickup and delivery options. The first one, door to door, includes us picking your vehicle up from your front door and delivering it to the address of your choosing. In general, door to door delivery is our standard offer, as it is quite convenient for our clients. You won’t have to worry about dropping off or picking up your automobile from a terminal. An exception to this can occur if there isn’t enough space on your street to pick up or drop off the car. In this case, the pickup or delivery will be arranged at the nearest convenient location, such as a wider street or a parking lot.
Aside from door to door delivery, Flat Price also offers terminal to terminal delivery solutions. What this means is that you will have to drop off your vehicle at the nearest terminal, and likewise pick it up from another one closest to its final destination. If you are considering this option, you will be happy to learn that Flat Price operates on terminals in pretty much all larger cities in the United States. In other words, you won’t really have to travel too far. Besides, this solution is slightly cheaper than our door to door delivery. That makes it a great option if you are looking to save up some money or if you are working on a limited budget.
Open and Enclosed Auto Carriers
Another choice you will have is between the two types of carriers we offer. The first option, an open carrier, is included in our standard offer. This means that your car will be transported on an open trailer. Don’t worry – open trailers are completely secure. Your machine will still be protected from any potential damage. However, it will be exposed to the elements such as rain, snow, or dirt.
Your other option is an enclosed carrier. This solution offers everything that an open trailer does, while also protecting your machine from the weather and road debris in an enclosed trailer. However, it costs more than open trailer transport. Enclosed trailers are usually reserved for sports cars, luxury vehicles, race cars, or show cars. If you are not sure which of these two options to choose, check out our handy guide for deciding between open and enclosed auto carriers. However, in general, unless you own a luxury car, there is no need to go for an enclosed trailer.
Frequently Asked Questions About Auto Transport
If you are thinking about sending your car to another address with Flat Price, we’re sure you have some additional questions. To help you do your research, we’ve decided to put together a short list of the most common questions we receive regarding our auto transport solution.
What are car shipping quotes and how do they work?
A shipping quote is an estimate of how much transporting your car is going to cost you. In other words, based on the information you provide, we will calculate the overall price of the service. However, since we can’t know for sure whether the information you gave us is entirely correct, as well as whether some other factors will affect the shipment, this is an estimate, rather than a final price. But don’t worry – with a reputable company such as Flat Price, the quote is never too different from the final price of the shipment.
How long does car transport take?
The time that passes between the day we pick up your car and the delivery date depends, for the most part, on the distance between the pick-up and delivery locations. In general, this can take anywhere between one and seven days. However, keep in mind that additional factors, such as road conditions or weather, may affect this number as well. Luckily, Flat Price has a quick guide on estimating how long it will take to ship your car.
When should I book the shipment of my car?
In general, it is advised that you book your pick-up date as early as possible. This is especially true in the summer when it’s peak season for auto moving companies. Scheduling your auto transport date two weeks in advance is the ideal time. However, it is not impossible to move your car on short notice, so don’t hesitate to ask.
Can I ship additional furniture in my car?
The short answer to this question is no. Car shipping companies are just that – companies that ship cars. They are not licensed (and therefore not allowed) to ship your furniture in the trunk or anything else you need to ship. What’s more, the insurance you get will only cover your car. Any other belongings in your car will not be insured. In fact, this is true for any personal belongings found in your vehicle. In other words, make sure you don’t leave any valuables behind. These could be papers of value, money, jewelry, or even objects that have sentimental value to you. Simply inspect your trunk, glove compartment, and any other storage areas before giving us your car.
Do I have to be there for pickup/delivery?
In general, yes, it is advised that you’re present on pickup and delivery dates. However, we understand that life can get busy and you might not be able to make it. For this reason, you can assign a person you trust – a family, friend, or coworker – to drop off or pick up your machine for you. Don’t forget to inform us of this, though.
My vehicle isn’t in driving condition. Can you still ship it?
Yes, Flat Price can ship inoperable vehicles as well. However, these cars require special care and additional personnel. For this reason, we ask that you let us know right away that you own a car that isn’t in driving condition.
Are there any preparatory steps?
Yes, there are things we suggest you do before you give us your car. This includes checking it for damage and removing your belongings. Flat Price has a detailed step-to-step guide on preparing your car for shipping.
The Importance of Price Quotes
There are many reasons why car shipping companies offer quotes for their services. For starters, asking for an estimate from multiple different companies will help you decide which one to go for. In addition to this, it will give you a general idea of the price range of such services, which means that you’ll be able to plan your budget better. And finally, quotes are a much more fool-proof way of estimating the price of a service than having a fixed rate with possible additional costs. In other words, shipping estimates are convenient, useful, and cost-effective.
Go for the best Cost-to-Quality Ratio, Not for the Cheapest Company
We have already mentioned that the purpose of an auto transport price estimate is to help you pick the best company for yourself. However, that doesn’t mean that you should simply go for the cheapest one. This is because the cheapest companies usually don’t offer high-quality solutions. The possibility of them damaging your car, even in an enclosed trailer, is higher. Also, their insurance policies are bad, which means that it is quite likely you will end up paying even more for the repairs.
Are you ready to ship your car? Then give Flat Price a call! One of our customer relations agents will happily answer any additional questions you may have, as well as provide you with more information. They will also offer a free auto shipping estimate so that you can plan your budget in advance. And don’t forget, if you are also moving a house, you can rely on our company for that too! We are looking forward to hearing from you.
