Guaranteed Car Transport Services
Guaranteed car transport services sometimes are not the easiest things to find. Sure, plenty of companies out there say their services are guaranteed, but what exactly does that mean for you and your vehicle shipping experience? Well, the term “guaranteed” in the auto transport can pertain to two things, usually: guaranteed pickup and guaranteed delivery of your vehicle. However, usually it will be one or the other – rare is the company that offers both guaranteed pickup and delivery dates for the same order, and the reasons are fairly simple: carriers have a lot of things that slow them down and can prevent guaranteed pickup and delivery services.
Typically, auto transport companies will be able to provide one or the other. For instance, with guaranteed pickup, they will guarantee that your vehicle will be picked up on a specific day. This is best done if you book at least a week out, giving your transport company plenty of time to find a carrier and dispatch your vehicle to it while also giving the driver time to get there by the guaranteed date.
Some companies will provide guaranteed delivery services as opposed to guaranteed pickup services, and is used when your vehicle must arrive in the delivery by a specific date. This means that carriers will have to pick your vehicle up and transport it with plenty of time to spare to get to your delivery location and drop the vehicle off.
Both of these are sort of difficult to provide regardless of who you book your order with. This is because there are so many things that can cause delays for carriers – traffic jams, inclement weather (such as snow and ice), mechanical failure – the list goes on and on. Maybe the driver hurt himself and he’s laid up in the hospital for a few days, or maybe he blew a tire on the road and has to repair it. This is why companies don’t like to guarantee pickup or delivery dates, but it can be done, though normally at a higher price. And even then, sometimes the guarantee falls through anyway, though this is generally rare and most of the time everything works out just peachy.
Ultimately, though, you want to speak to your auto transport representative about what options are available to you in terms of guaranteeing pickup or delivery services. You always want to make sure you have all the information about their specific policies regarding guaranteed auto transport services, as more often than not they don’t tell you about the fine print, and it’s likely that their guaranteed services come with some kind of caveat that they don’t tell you about up front.
