Transporting Cars with Trucks

Transporting Cars with Trucks

If you are a college student who needs a car at school, a snowbird who needs your car moved South for the winter, or a business owner who needs to move a huge fleet of vehicles, the easiest and most affordable option is to ship your vehicle on a truck. Land transport is safe and affordable, but it isn’t the best option for every scenario. If you need your vehicle shipped overseas or shipped to its destination very quickly, you may need to have it transported on a ship or plane.

There are destinations that are impossible to reach by truck, and in these cases, it makes sense to ship your vehicle by sea. Ship transport offers a range of options, and you can even have your vehicle transported in its very own secure container on the ship. Shipping by sea is more expensive than shipping by land. You also have to figure out how to get your car to the port, meaning that you may have to book land transport as well. Once your vehicle is on the ship, it should reach your destination in two to six weeks.

Vehicles as Air Freight

If you ship your vehicle as air freight, it travels to its destination on a cargo plane. Air freight is the most expensive shipping option for vehicles, and it typically costs about five times more than shipping by land or sea. However, shipping your vehicle as air freight offers a host of advantages including privacy and speed. Luxury car companies ship prototypes to car shows by air. It is easier to keep prototypes under wraps on a plane than on a truck. Race car drivers minimize shipping time by transporting race cars to races via planes.
