Pros and Cons of Express Car Transport

We live in a fast-paced world in which everything needs to happen yesterday. Unfortunately, it’s not always possible, and sometimes we have to wait for things to get done. Auto transport is generally one of those occasions. However, there is a way to get around the time delay, and it’s called express auto shipping.

What is Express Vehicle Shipping?

It’s a service that does exactly what it says on the tin! It’s a way of getting your car shipped faster than the standard service. If you need a vehicle shipped in double quick time and for it to arrive at or by an exact date, this is the service for you.

Regular progress updates – for your own peace of mind, it’s possible to schedule regular updates on the progress of your vehicle. It’s also possible for you to stay in touch with the auto transport carriers and the driver responsible for hauling your car.

Ship personal items – the car moving companies we work with allow you to ship one box or suitcase in the trunk of your vehicle, at no extra cost. It does, however, have to weigh no more than 100lbs.

As long as there’s room for a truck and trailer to drive along the street and no parking or other restrictions.

It sounds like a good service if you want to ship my car faster than normal. There is, however, one downside you need to be aware of.

What is the Price to Ship a Car Quickly?

You’re not going to be surprised when we tell you that our express service costs a little more than the standard one. How much extra depends on the distance, type of vehicle, the popularity of the pick-up and delivery locations, and the weather. On average, the increase is around 30%, or between $200 and $300. If you choose our enclosed service as well the price is even higher.

The reasons you have to pay extra are to cover the cost of the extra effort required to arrange such a service. Your shipment also takes priority over other customers, and there may additionally fuel costs and extra driving.
