Different Auto Shipping Services – Which One is Right for You?

Have you ever faced the question “Are there any auto transport companies near me?”. There are several different situations you could find yourself in that require the help of an auto carrier service. You might be relocating because of your job, or recently received your PCS orders. If you’ve bought a car online and need to get it delivered, this is another occasion that calls for car carrier ship companies.

Before you organize this type of service, you need to make yourself aware of the different options. There are more than you think. Here’s a list of some you might be interested in:

Now let's look at them in a little more detail. When you get to the end of this article, you'll be able to make an informed decision, if you ever need to choose an auto transport business.

Open Vehicle Shipping

This is the best option for anyone with a standard car, and it's also the most popular car transport service. It's a service we've been specializing in for several years, and we've got a Choose to ship your vehicle in this way, and it gets transported on the back of a multi-car transport trailer. It’s an easy to arrange option and one of the most affordable ways to transport a vehicle.

Your vehicle is exposed to the elements and road debris, but that doesn’t automatically mean it’s bound to get damaged. In fact, almost all every open vehicle shipping service we provide goes smoothly, without a hitch.   

Enclosed Shipping

Enclosed vehicle transport is the service we recommend for owners of prestigious, luxury, custom, classic, antique, or sports vehicles. It’s also an option we recommend for winter transportation services.

Choose this service, and your car gets maximum protection on all four sides. As well as the highest level of protection, we can assure you of the best possible security for your precious motor.

Enclosed car shipping isn't the cheapest option, but can you put a price on your peace of mind and 100% protection? On average, expect to pay between 40% and 50% extra.

Door to Door Vehicle Shipping

In the world of auto shipping, there are two kinds of providers: terminal to terminal and door-to-door. Here at SGT Auto Transport, we're proud to be able to offer the most convenient one which is door to door auto transport.

We should point out, however, that it doesn't mean your car is picked up from outside your front door and deposited on the doorstep at the final destination. The size of the vehicles used for transporting cars doesn’t allow for such convenience. But let’s be honest, would you really want a truck and trailer of more than 90 feet driving along your residential street? There might be local restrictions, overhanging trees or power lines that also prohibit such trailers accessing your street.

What door to door means is that your car or vehicle can be picked up and delivered to an address of your choosing. It might be a parking lot around the corner or at your local mall. You could also choose a storage facility, garage, or outside your place of employment. 

Express Transport

There’s an average timeframe for delivering a car transport service of between 5 and 7 business days. However, there might be occasions when a quicker car transport service is required. This is when an express transport service can be invaluable. It means a significant reduction in waiting time and delivery of your vehicle in 1-2 business days.

For an express transport service, the cost increases by as much as 30%. This is because a lot of extra effort goes into arranging such a service. Extra driving may be involved, which of course increases the amount of fuel a carrier uses.

Few things can be guaranteed when it comes to transporting vehicles. However, SGT can offer a guaranteed pick-up service. You can make a booking with a 24-hour window.
