• Where did you send your car? If your vehicle is currently in a rural area, miles from a major city, you can save money by bringing it into town and out at designated points offered by transportation providers.
This saves money and helps the company work for better plan equipment. You can also choose international auto shipping services in your area.
• Where did you send your car? The same rules apply for that purpose. If the vehicle's final destination is for miles in the countryside, save money by driving it from the big city to your new home.
• Know what services are expected. Every transportation company wants to sell a service that sounds good on paper but might not charge you extra.
Make sure you get a quote that explains the costs involved and questions any seemingly unnecessary costs to get your car to its new home. Expect mileage, fuel, processing, and import/export fees. Terminal fees or storage fees should not be.
• Avoid terminal-to-terminal services. Terminal-to-terminal fees mean the transportation provider will take your car to one of their terminals, where it can last for days or weeks until another customer's vehicle is added to your vehicle for maximum return on their equipment.
This means storage or terminal fees for you. And because you don't know how long your vehicle can be in the terminal, you don't know these final costs in advance. Continue to use door-to-door services whenever possible.
