Important factors to consider when transporting a car.


Transporting cars is never an easy task whether it is for your personal use or for business purposes.  Unless you have cars transported on a regular basis, you would be better off knowing the basics of transporting cars from one location to another.

There are several important factors to consider when transporting a car. Here is a guide to some of your options when having a car transported./p>

1. Self transport
Do you really want to transport the vehicle yourself?  If you want spend hours driving the auto trailer than getting the services of a transport company then rent a trailer. However, you should be very adept in maneuvering the trailer to avoid any accidents during the trip.  Remember that by transporting the car yourself, you miss out on some days which could be better spent on more important things.  Self transport can be a bit of a hassle really so you might want to think about it twice before deciding on doing it yourself. 

2. Hire a driver
Another option is to hire someone, preferably an expert, to transport the car for you.  However, you have to really trust the driver to deliver the car to its destination in one piece.  Ask for previous clients and research this company or driver. Also make sure they are licensed, bonded and insured.

3. Open or Enclosed trailers?
Open transporters are the most economical but they do not really protect the car from the weather or outside debris. Enclosed auto transport is typically 25% to 50% more expensive than open trailers. Enclosed trailers also protect your vehicle from the weather and outside debris..

3. Benefits of using a licensed, bonded and insured company.

- The car transport company does all the paper work, reservation and finds you the best deal.

- You have the advantage of having financial back-up in case of damage to the vehicle granting that the company has included the shipping insurance in the fees.

- Save yourself hours of driving time by allowing a reliable and trusted auto carrier handle your vehicle.

Transporting a car should not really be a problem if you know your options.  Make sure you have studied the advantages and disadvantages of each option before deciding on one.
