What Kind of Vehicles Does a Moving Company Use for Transportation?

Moving companies, such as Allied Van Lines, that transport vehicles use open or closed car transporters. Depending on your budget and needs, you can choose between these two options. Mayflower Moving Company in Mount Pleasant SC also offers both open and closed car transportation equipment. Automatic transport with the sides open is usually the most affordable option, and therefore the preferred choice for many customers who need to move their vehicle to a new destination.

However, if you are shipping a high-value vehicle, closed transportation is recommended as it will protect your car from dust, dirt and weather outside. It is also a good option if you are planning to move a luxury or old car. In this case, it is best to use the services of a company that specializes in shipping cars, also known as Auto Movers. They will transport your car (and maybe even your boat or other recreational craft) in an open truck or an enclosed truck.

You may even be able to have the moving company load your car into the van along with your furniture and other household items. When researching different car transportation companies, you should get different car shipping quotes for the services you want. It is important to verify the moving company's credentials and history by calling the Better Business Bureau or any commercial organization of which it is a member (for example, the Employee Relocation Council, the American Moving and Storage Association, and the Association of Household Goods Movers). When filling out the quote form, make sure to include the make and model of the car you want to move.

If the things you want to move fit inside a car, it is best to go to a UPS store and have everything shipped to you in one of their ground freight containers. The time it takes for your vehicle to be transported depends on the distance. Your Allied moving consultant can provide you with an automatic shipping quote that tells you exactly when your vehicle will be loaded and delivered, with guaranteed dates. For example, if you plan to move during the summer months, you could negotiate a lower rate.

Moving companies such as Allied Van Lines and Mayflower offer reliable car transportation services that take away the stress of moving your precious vehicles. Whether you need to move a 9 foot 4 m surfboard and about 22 to 25 moving boxes from Murrieta, CA 92563 to Yorktown Heights, NY 10598 or any other vehicle, these companies can help.
