When traveling you have one of two options, you can either move your car from one place to the other, or you can simply sell it. This choice depends on one thing- the location you are moving to. If your car passes all the requirements of the law, then a better option would be for you to just move it. The first thing, in this case, is to find a service that will help you ship it. Shipping a car is not a huge hassle, as long as you find the right service that is not too expensive, nor will it cause any damage to it. Below are different options you can pick from to move your car.
Moving it as “Household Goods”
For many people moving, they need much more than just a car, they need all their household goods. Large trucks arrive at your doorstep and help you load all your goods from one place to another. One option they provide is to move your car as well. This though is a very expensive option, as most household movers charge by weight. This also may not be an optimum option if you want to take your car overseas.
If you are moving across the country or merely need the cheapest way to ship a car, then getting a professional mover is the better choice. In this case, you can choose an auto transport professional who can move your car across the state. These options are cheaper, as in some cases they do not only move your car, they may have the option to move other objects as well, so you do not have to pay as much for the distance. Professional movers also have an option of moving boats and other crafts on the available trucks if needed.
Below are also some points you need to keep in mind so that you are able to look for one.
Check if the mover has a certificate of insurance, so you can make sure that if something happens to your vehicle, they will cover the expenses.
Also, make sure you create an agreement. For instance, if you asked for your car to be moved from Florida to Texas for X amount of money, they have that written down on paper; this is a safe option in case the mover decides to add more expenses during the trip.
For extra security, you can check on the moving trucks and make sure that they too are secured. If the company is using another company’s trucks, then also check reviews on that other company if there are any available. Lastly, be sure to check reviews in general. Some movers look extremely professional, but have had several issues with clients in the past. To avoid an issue such as this, look for one with excellent reviews or from someone trusted. Moving a car is an expensive task, but so are the costs of your car itself so make sure you find a service that you are comfortable with and will be able to trust.
