Why is Door-to-Door Shipping necessary for Exotic Auto Transport?
If you’re relocating to another area in the US and considering having your high-end vehicle shipped to your new home, Exotic Car Transport offers an extensive line of auto transport options to choose from, one of which is “door-to-door” shipping. This is by far the most efficient method for shipping exotic, luxury, and vintage vehicles and involves the least amount of work and stress for the owner. At the same time, it is the most convenient method for shipping your vehicle.
What exactly is door-to-door auto transport?
As the name implies, this type of auto transport involves picking up your vehicle at the “door” of your current address and delivering it to the “door” of the new address. This could be a business, industrial, or residential address. Basically, the vehicle is being picked up and transported door-to-door in much the same way that the postal service delivers packages.
Keep in mind there are certain circumstances where door-to-door transport will not be possible or are prohibited because of:
- low-hanging trees
- maneuverability challenges such as hillsides and mountain communities
- narrow streets
- residential zoning laws
- weight restrictions
When it comes to the maneuverability issue, the general rule of thumb is to check your neighborhood for tractor trailer rigs driving or parked on any residential street. If so, then door-to-door transport shouldn’t be an issue. In situations where Exotic Car Transport cannot provide door-to-door shipping and delivery, we can arrange to pick up or deliver your vehicle to a convenient and safe location that we’ve agreed upon.
What optional services do we pair with door-to-door transport?
In an effort to make our door-to-door transport more convenient and effective, we offer other services that can be paired with this shipping method. This is just our way of giving the client the greatest value for their money. Here are 3 additional services that we can include on request:
- Enclosed shipping – enclosed carriers are the primary door-to-door transport method used because smaller trucks are used to pull the carrier. This enables us to maneuver easier on city streets. You also have the choice of shipping your vehicle door-to-door in an open carrier.
- Expedited shipping – if you need your vehicle shipped to your new location as soon as possible, you can request expedited shipping for an additional charge. Although your vehicle will be delivered the same way, we will get it to the specified location as soon as is humanly possible.
- Satellite tracking – another service that we provide at Exotic Car Transport is satellite tracking. This service provides clients with real-time updates on their vehicle’s status so they can track their shipment and monitor where their vehicle is while in transit.
Keep in mind that you don’t need to present at the pick-up location if you have other pressing circumstances to deal with. However, we do require that someone at least 18 years of age be there to sign the driver’s paperwork when they pick-up your vehicle. We take all care so that your vehicle is safely transported from your current location and delivered to the new destination safely and securely.
