What To Expect When Shipping Your Vehicle
Direct Express Auto Transport is a #1 door-to-door car shipping company, so we are an authority on what to expect. In June, July and August of 2013, it is the peak season for vehicle shipping. More vehicles are vying for limited space on car carriers, and that classic economic equation of supply and demand comes into place. The price for car transports goes up, so we recommend that you do not attempt to book with any auto transport broker at the lowest price. Please remember, you are competing with other people in your area for truck space on your shipping route.
Why is that? Well it’s because typically people wait until the summer to relocate their families, and the good weather makes it easier to buy and sell cars on ebay.com, cars.com, autotrader.com, craigslist, and more. Also in June and again in August, the college kids start shipping their cars home or to school.
We also recommend that you do not actually book your vehicle shipment until inside of one week from your first available shipping date. That’s because you should want the most current price no matter what it is. If it is more, then pay it. If it is less, then enjoy the savings. Please remember that you should typically allow several days to pickup your vehicle, so don’t wait until the last minute, but rather, give yourself time and have a backup plan, i.e. another contact, in case you leave before your car has been assigned a transporter.

How Direct Express Auto Transport Does It
You can receive a car transport quote instantly online and book it. Or call us to set it up. There are no taxes, fuel surcharges or hidden fees. We have relationships with over 5,000 pre-approved independent truck owners or carriers, and all are licensed and insured because we check. It is the only way to service the entire country and do it fast. We do not use terminals thank heavens! The online auto transport quotes work over 85% of the time, picking up within one week of the first date available, especially if you are transporting from one major metropolitan area to another. If it takes longer than one week, then it is probably due to a remote origination and/or destination, or a very large vehicle, or bad weather, or seasonal fluctuations where suddenly too many cars are vying for limited space. We see the latter every year when snowbirds flock from Illinois, Michigan, Ohio, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Massachusetts to Florida, Texas, Georgia, Arizona, the Carolinas and California. Then in the spring home again. And as well, right after major holidays.
Open and Enclosed Transport
Open transport carriers like those seen delivering new cars to dealerships is how about 97% of the vehicles are shipped nationwide, and that is because it is relatively safe and more economical. Fully enclosed carriers are available upon request, but only about 3% go that route because it costs roughly 50% more.
