Choosing The Right Method For Vehicle Shipping

When buying a vehicle of any kind from somewhere other than where you live, you will face the conundrum of shipping the vehicle to yourself or picking the vehicle up. Depending on where you live, this could mean some extensive travel and time. Many people have their vehicle delivered. Here are some things to keep in mind about vehicle delivery. 

Not All Delivery Is The Same 

Do not assume all delivery is equal. The two most popular ways to ship a vehicle is either on an open trailer or closed trailer. Open trailers are often cheaper and sometimes even free. They come with a price though. These cars often are damaged by weather or debris. They also use chains to secure the vehicles which can also cause damage if they are not perfectly secured to the vehicle and trailer. Closed trailers help prevent theft and protect against the weather. The straps are often made from nylon rather than chains. 

Find out where your vehicle was manufactured and how it is arriving at the dealership. We are importing more vehicles today than we ever have in the past. This means a lot of shipping could be taking place before you even buy the vehicle. With the increase of importing vehicles, investments pour into North American ports. Always question where the vehicle came from and how it was transported to its destination. 

Looking For The Right Vehicle Online 

Many people will search for vehicles online. It’s easy and convenient. You can search all the different colors, features, styles, and prices all on the internet and never leave your home. Be wise, however, and always choose to view publisher site. It will tell you many things about the vehicles you are looking at and where they came from. 

Read the reviews. Reviews tell you so much about the vehicle, the website, the shipping methods and condition of the vehicle when it arrived. People are not afraid to talk both good and bad about their experiences. Do not just read the reviews on the dealership webpage. Unfortunately, those can be bought (hopefully are not) and may not accurately reflect what people really think. Search Google for reviews on the dealership, website, and vehicle you are looking at. 

Price is Not Everything 

Never base your decision solely on the price. This is where you have to start asking questions like: “How is it shipped?”, “Where is it shipped from?”, “Which straps are used to secure the vehicle during transportation?”, etc. Sometimes paying a little more will be worth your money in the long run. And sometimes you’ll pay for bad shipping if you don’t do your research correctly.
