Way to Transport Your Auto Across the Country with Shipping Agents

Jun, 16, 2017 / Admin

Transportation across the country to another state is the work of shipping agents. When people move to a different place they often employ the shippers to take care of their heavy equipment such as tractors, golf carts, and automobiles. The shipping company will deliver the autos and golf carts at the destination spot at the specified time.

Search for the company first

If you were moving to another place and needed a shipping company to take care your transportation, you need to search for that on the internet. If you googled auto transport companies near me you will get at least ten to twenty companies. But, they may not all be suitable for your purpose. The reason is simple.

Terminal to terminal shipping

Some of the companies operate terminal to terminal. This means, you drop your vehicle at one terminal and the trucking companies will pick it up and drop it at the destination terminal.This is certainly one of the cheapest ways to move your auto but this will take plenty of time. The trucker will wait at the starting terminal until his truck has become full. You also cannot be sure about the safety of your auto. But, it will get to the next terminal when the trucker decides to move it. Now, this may not suit all people.

Door-to-door delivery

The second type of mover is the one who does door-to-door delivery. This is the most reliable and once you entrust the auto to the moving agent, you can sit back and relax. You will receive it at the destination point safely. You should watch the trucking company before he moves your auto. They may use the open carrier or the closed carrier.

Most of the recognised international auto shipping companies offer both options when you sign up with them to move your auto. The closed one is costlier and may take time to move. The open carrier is cheaper and will move fast – the waiting time is less. During the transportation, much dirt and dust will fall on the auto. This will make them dirty and sometimes you might have scratches and dents too. This is if you choose the open carrier.

Closed carrier transportation

People want their autos to arrive safe without any unsightly scratches or dirt deposits on them. So, they choose the closed carrier. This makes sure that your auto will arrive in a safe manner. You must check with the auto shipping agent what the mode of transport will be.

Once you have decided on the shipping agent, you can pay the deposit and then talk to the driver. He will tell you the approximate date and time when he expects to leave and when he expects to arrive.  Now, you can begin to prepare for the arrival of your vehicle at the destination point.

All the shipping agents may not have terminal to terminal shipping. But, this is the cheapest. Then, all door-to-door moving companies may not use a closed carrier. You must check with them whether they use closed trucks or open trucks. Cal up the customer support and check if you have any doubts.

Our clients say


They were very professional along the way as was the driver who checked in to arrange time of pick-up, and time of drop-off while on the road. We requested an enclosed truck, which was exactly what arrived at our home for our two vintage cars going from NV to TX. We had heard horror stories about companies who take your money and not deliver what you request, so we were extremely happy with Route Runners. Also know, Route Runners was very friendly over the phone and had answered all my questions in full detail. I would speak highly of to anybody I knew who need their car transported.

Route Runners was able to deliver a driver at a reasonable rate

I've used Route Runners Auto Transport to ship my car from CA to NC (and back). It was my first time dealing with car shipping and it went very smoothly working with Route Runners! They gave me a good price and also worked hard to honor the price while searching for carriers. They are easy to get a hold of by phone and always email confirmations. Will definitely be recommending this company to friends and family for their car shipment needs.

They Were Incredibly Reliable

I needed my 2006 335i BMW transported from New Jersey to Seattle. The booking process with Route Runners Auto Transport went very smoothly, and within 24 hours I had a pickup date for my vehicle. My vehicle was picked up on June 2 and delivered to my home in Seattle, WA on June 7 (within 5 days). The car was delivered in the same condition it was picked up, and all the cargo inside the vehicle was untouched and undamaged. Communication with the truck driver is easy, as you can text/call them anytime to check on the status of the delivery. I am very pleased with the ease of use and speedy delivery provided by Route Runners Auto Transport. I would highly recommend them to anyone who needs their vehicle transported quick.

Speedy Delivery and Easy to Use

All I know is I am very happy my car made it from Michigan to Florida in one piece and free of any scratches or dents. I called the driver for his status when he was in transit and was very nice to hear his updates. I was very worried at first since my car is a baby still (I've only had it a few months) so trusting my car in someone else's hands was scary!

I am delighted I found Route Runners
