What is express auto transport?

In the world of auto transport there are standard shipping times. However, for occasions when time is of the essence it is possible to get your vehicle shipped super quick. Last-minute car shipping is available, with your vehicle being picked up in 1-2 business days.

This service is known as express auto transport or expedited auto transport. After all, we understand that you might need your vehicle in a hurry. Whether you are relocating for a job or having a brand new car delivered, we can help you out.

How long does express auto shipping take

How long does express auto transport take?

Auto express transport does not come in a one-size-fits-all approach. After all, your vehicle is unique, not to mention the circumstances surrounding your express car delivery. Therefore, iIt’s difficult to quantify the actual time frame for express auto transport.

Each expedited car shipping process comes with, because there are so many variables. And each of these is crucial to the fast vehicle transport process. Because at the end of the day, it isn’t only about getting your vehicle from A to B.

It is about efficiency and also the safety of your vehicle.

For example, if you are transporting a classic car, then an enclosed carrier is highly recommended. And while enclosed carriers are common, they are not as readily available as open carriers. However, they also might be able to ship your vehicle with fewer breaks during the journey.

How much does express auto transport cost?

Similar to how long it takes to ship a car, how much it costs is unique to your situation. There are many factors that impact the cost of car transport express. For example, the type of vehicle you have will play a role in your car shipping quote. This is because different vehicles require different types of car carriers.

We discussed briefly the difference between open carriers and enclosed carriers regarding time. And there is no question that this difference plays a role in cost as well. But this proper protection is what you are paying for in a car transport service. Again, it isn’t only about speed, but the safety of the vehicle as well.

And there are other variables that play a role in setting the cost. Pick-up and delivery locations and the distance traveled are crucial factors. It is no secret that shipping your vehicle across the state is going to cost less than across the country. Fortunately for you, we are a car shipping company that does both.

We pick up your vehicle

Your assigned fast car shipping carrier will contact you a few hours before your scheduled pick-up. As well as confirming the details of your pick-up, the driver also needs to know whether the location is safe and legal for a large commercial vehicle. It’s not an issue if it isn’t because alternative arrangements can be made, such as a parking lot, a wider street nearby, or where you work. The call is also to check someone will be available to release the vehicle. You can nominate a third-party to act on your behalf, such as a neighbor, friend, relative, or work colleague, if you can’t be present at the pick-up.

You and the express auto transport driver will first inspect your vehicle. Any existing damage to the exterior of the vehicle gets recorded on the Bill of Lading. You both sign this important document and your vehicle is then ready for loading. Remember to keep your copy of the Bill of Lading somewhere safe.

Say goodbye to your precious vehicle and they’ll load it onto the express auto transport trailer. It won’t be long before you see it again at its delivery destination, but if you need reassurance, you can check in any time with the driver. You can also receive regular status updates by email, Live Chat, or over the phone.

You receive your vehicle

The last minute car transport carrier will get in touch a few hours before they make their delivery. They like to give you a few hours notice so you can make sure you’re available. If you’re not, it’s not a problem because you can nominate a neighbor, friend, acquaintance, or colleague to accept delivery on your behalf. They do, however, have to be over 18 years of age.

After a close inspection of your vehicle, just to make sure everything’s in order, you’ve then got to sign the Bill of Lading, as acceptance of your delivery. If you opted for the Discounted Cash Price, this is when you make your final payment, either in cash, money order, or cashier check.

Frequently asked questions about express auto transport

Everything you need to know about our express auto transport services

Can you guarantee a pick up date?

A pickup date can be guaranteed, however, you will have to speak with a shipping advisor and request a customized quote. You’ll also need to need to decide whether you need the car picked up by or on a specific date. We should point out that delivery dates cannot be guaranteed because anything can happen once your vehicle is in the process of being transported.

Is an express auto transport service always available and do I have to pay more?

We do offer express auto transport service. It does, however, cost a bit more than regular shipment. There are several reasons why you have to pay extra. Car carriers have to make a number of pick-ups and deliveries for each load. They will have a schedule to follow and a variety of locations to visit. To speed up this process, the carrier has to reduce the number of cars being hauled and the number of stops made along the route. This means the hauler is losing money, which you’re compensating for by paying extra. Contact us via phone or Live Chat to get an instant express auto transport quote now.

Can you guarantee a delivery date with express auto transport?

Express auto transport is a service that we provide to expedite shipments. Delivery dates are estimated only and cannot be guaranteed.
