The time frame of delivery of your vehicle depends upon the fact that when your vehicle is picked up. If it is the last to be picked by the transporter, it will be the first vehicle to be delivered and vice versa. Typically, it requires eight to ten days to transfer your vehicle.
However, it highly depends upon the route. You will be required to inform the car mover two weeks in advance. A the date of pickup comes nearer they will confirm you about the date and time of shipping your vehicle. Therefore you are required to do advance planning.
Most of the time your car mover uses 8 or 10- car hauler to transport your vehicle. This is a car carrier which is 75' to 80' in length and 14' in height. So maneuver is very difficult in case of this carrier and these haulers are not allowed to main roads with no low clearing bridges and overhanging trees.
Car Move Types
Door to Door Delivery
As the title itself suggests, the pickup and delivery of your car from and to your door or almost near to it is known as door to door delivery. The entire process depends upon the space in the originating area and destination. Delivery of your vehicle can be done right on your door if your house is on a main road which is two lanes wide.
Same is with the pickup. In an otherwise case, the driver approaching your house will suggest you to meet at a common spacious point like mall or supermarket in the city to load and unload your vehicle.
Terminal to Terminal
You car needs to to go to a terminal for loading and unloading only when your car mover is not able to pickup or deliver your car from the area on account of inaccessibility or conflicting schedules. The terminals are completely insured and licensed. This usually happens when the area you are living or relocating restricts the movement of big 8 to 10 wheels car haulers because of less space and low width of the road in front of your house.
