Shipping a vehicle can be an overwhelming and complicated process. Once you begin to research vehicle shipping services you quickly discover that there are a lot of options out there and it may not be completely clear which options are in your best interest. Do you want to keep things simple? We can help you right now by telling you exactly what you need to look for. Check out these four simple choices to make and find out what makes the most sense when it comes to shipping your vehicle.

Door to Door over Terminal

Is it convenient for you to drop everything so you can go through the inconvenience of driving your vehicle to a terminal for shipping? The inconvenience doesn’t stop there either. When your vehicle arrives at its final destination, you have to go pick it up and drive it home because it’s final destination is actually another terminal that you have to drive to. This may be the cheaper route to go but is it worth all of the hassle to you? Most would say no. Choose an auto transport service that will come to you.

By making the choice to go with a door to door transportation service, your vehicle is picked up at your house. That’s all there is to it. No need to take a day off to drive your vehicle to a terminal and then figure out a way to get to wherever you need to be from there. And when your vehicle arrives at its final destination, that final destination is your front door. Door to door is the simplest and most convenient choice you can make to satisfy your auto shipment needs.

Enclosed Auto Transport over Open

Picture this for a moment. You ship your vehicle and move to your new location. You can’t wait to have your own vehicle back so you can feel that much more at home in a potentially unfamiliar location. The day comes and your beautiful shiny car arrives only it isn’t really shiny anymore and it’s not really beautiful. It’s covered with mud and scratched and dinged up from being struck by rocks. Does that sound like a pleasant memory to start off with at your new home? Probably not.

Enclosed auto transport is all about protecting your vehicle. You will pay more but you get exactly what you would expect; your vehicles is safely enclosed in a specially designed auto shipping container that protects your vehicle from hazards and damage that could potentially be incurred during transportation if left exposed.

Enclosed Auto Transport

Straps over Chains

This almost sounds like such an insignificant detail that you shouldn’t bother worrying about it right? Does it really matter how your vehicles is secured during transport? Actually it does, it matters quite a bit actually. Chains are probably not what you want if you care about your vehicle. If they are fastened too tightly, they have the potential to permanently damaging your vehicle by actually bending its frame.

It is also quite possible that the carrier doesn’t have the right hooks on their chains to fit your vehicles. That doesn’t mean they won’t still try to use them which could quite possibly result in damage. Straps on the other hand are universally simple to install. Tire straps connect through your wheels and present very little risk of damage and they are completely secure. Straps over chains may end up costing you a little more but the benefits are well worth a small increase in your bill.

Carrier? Broker? Why Not Go with Both?

To briefly explain the difference between these two, a carrier is the actual company that owns the trucks and provides the transportation service. A broker is the facilitator or middle man that connects you to a carrier and charges you a potentially hefty markup in the overall price you have to pay. Carriers tend to be localized so you may have trouble finding one near your or one licensed in all of the states your vehicle has to travel through to arrive at its destination. Brokers come with the benefit of being able to coordinate a seamless transportation experience. Get the best of both option by going with a vehicle transportation service that is both a carrier and a broker.

Door to Door Transport provides the best choice for you and your vehicle on each of these four important criteria.  There are a lot of vehicle transportation services out there but when it comes to the best company out there, consider us. We will carefully walk you through the shipment process and provide the exact transportation experience you are looking for, with the options you want. If you are looking for the best, choose Door to Door Transport. We specialize in enclosed auto transport and care about protecting what is important to you.


Reviews from Our Customers

“My car has arrived! The driver delivered about 4:00 pm this afternoon. Considering I called you about this auto transport move on Friday morning and it is now delivered over 500 miles away and it is only Sunday, this was an amazingly quick move. I have purchased several cars online, but I have never had auto shipping experience that was this fast and affordable. Thanks for making this move a great experience. I will call you on all future moves.” – Roy
"We used Door to Door to move our mini-van from PA to TX. I selected Door to Door after a few weeks of online research and contact with over 15 different car transport companies. I eliminated every company with poor reviews and poor BBB ratings. Door to Door met my initial criteria and I was pleased with my phone conversations with JR. They assigned a driver who was courteous, professional and just plain nice. We felt very comfortable with the driver and knew he would deliver the van on-time and without issue. We were very pleased overall and would not hesitate to use Door to Door again when we need car shipping in the future." - Jennifer
"Our vehicle transport experience with Door To Door Auto Transport was very positive. The couple that actually transported the car were very friendly and kept in touch with us so that we knew exactly when the car would be picked up. If I ever need a vehicle shipping company again, I will call Door To Door Auto Transport." – Shari
"I used Door To Door Auto Transport simply because of their good reviews. I was very nervous to transport my car but I did not have time to deliver my daughter’s car to her. This was my first experience shipping a vehicle and I was impressed! They picked the car up and delivered it earlier than I planned! They picked the car up on Thursday and they delivered it at 1:00a.m. Sunday instead of Monday during working hours. We did not expect this and it turned out to be good for us. The transport overall was very fast. Lola was very good and pleasant. The price was just right." – MyLe
"Linda was very nice and genuine and Door to Door did what they said they would do. The transactions were quick and easy and the driver actually arrived much earlier than I expected. Auto shipping across the country is expensive, so regardless of price (which this was one of the cheaper ones I found), if you want the job done well, go with Door to Door!" – Reggie
