3 Factors to Consider During Automobile Transport

hidden costs

How difficult is moving an automobile? It might be easier than you think.

Moving an automobile requires special equipment and experience. Make sure you pick the right service provider for the job. You’ll save money, time and stress when moving your vehicle to your new home.

Here are three factors to consider when transporting an automobile:

1. Shipping and operational guidelines differ by jurisdiction.

Each state in the U.S. has its own laws regarding vehicle registration and operation. Some states have stringent requirements for vehicle condition or emission output. Check with the authorities in your new destination to make sure you can use your automobile in your new home. This is especially important when shipping a car to another country.

2. You may have to pay port fees, taxes and export/import charges.

Don’t assume your shipping quote includes every penny you’ll have to spend to get your vehicle to your new home. When comparing quotes, make sure you’re weighing the same services and charges. Some companies offer bare-bones vehicle shipping while others offer white glove service down to helping you complete all your export/import paperwork.

3. It might be better to sell or store your vehicle.

At Nilson Van & Storage, we’re always happy to provide expert advice, even if it costs us a sale. Sometimes shipping your car isn’t the best choice. We have storage solutions available if your move is temporary. However, there are times when it’s best to sell your automobile and purchase a new one after you’ve moved into your new home.

Give Nilson Van & Storage a call whenever you’re considering moving an automobile. We will help you to consider the top options to meet your needs and budget.
