How will my Transport be with a FTL Freight Carrier?
If your Vehicle Transport is large enough to take up the entire truck space, it is a "full truckload" the Car Transport will be in the truck all by itself. If your Transport does not quite require the entire space, it is considered a "partial truckload" and the Transport will be in a truck along with another partial load.
What if my Transport is not ready when the driver comes?
Usually the driver will not wait and will be dispatched to come out again the next day. This will delay your transit time and you will be responsible for a duplicated pick up fee if the carrier charges for the 2nd pick up. Please have your Transport ready.
Does my Transport weight have to be accurate or can I estimate?
Yes, Transport weight needs to be accurate because your Car Transport charge is based partly on weight. If your Car Transport is inaccurately weighed, it is subject to being re-weighed by the carrier, which could result in an additional charge. Re-weighing may also delay delivery.
Do I also need to provide the shipment dimensions?
You only need to provide package measurements for international shipments as they are based on weight and dimensions. Domestic shipment charges are based on freight class and weight.
