Auto Transport Services for the USA

Domestic car shipping available in the USA for our Canadian and US clientele

Vehicle shipping requires a lot of logistical training and networking. For most, some have never transported a vehicle before, and it can become challenging when the moment comes. With all the different terminology and the multitudes of companies offering their own definitions, many people may pick up the phone and not know the good questions to ask. Of all the services available to the public, door to door transport is the often the most sought after service. Door to door vehicle delivery is offered by most auto transport companies and is the most common method of transporting vehicles.

In the United States, this service is readily available because of the regulations and services provided for free trade within North America. The reason is due to the fact that the United States has over 360 commercial coastline ports and this number is growing yearly. Due to the amount of freight and vehicles shipped into the US, there is a real need for transporters to help maintain this multi-billion dollar industry. In fact, some situations call for clients in Canada to send their vehicles into the USA for their final destination in other countries. So shipping vehicles from Canada to the USA has its own advantages as well for international shipping. A lot of Canadian clientele can take advantage of the availability of ports calls on the Eastern and Western cost lines of the United States. This offers more purchasing power and increases the value of a competitive market.

Door to door auto shipping

This type of service means that the carrier will pick up and drop off the vehicle as close to your door as they can legally, and safely. Some regions have restrictions on the type of trailers allowed into certain residential and commercial areas. Large trucks are generally prohibited from entering tighter areas because they require more space and can block emergency lanes. If a truck is blocking a road, this can cause issues for city workers e.g. firetrucks, ambulances, police etc. Therefore most carriers will require that the consignee of the vehicle meet at an open area to receive the vehicle being transported. Generally however most carriers make it to the final destination without any issues.  

Terminal to terminal auto shipping

This type of service means that the owner, or agent of the vehicle will drop the vehicle off at a local terminal to be picked up at a later time for consolidation. This is generally used in areas that do not see to much through traffic from freighters. Sometimes even in major cities this is beneficial for some clients looking to save some money if they have a lot of time to spare for shipping their vehicle.
