We at Wheels On Wheels Carriers realize that shipping your vehicle can be a stressful time. To make your move go smoothly we would like to give you some advice on shipping your vehicle. First, be sure that when you get your quote it’s accurate. You can make sure of this by giving detailed information on your vehicle. If your vehicle is not drivable, cannot roll, or has no brakes we can still ship it but we need to add additional funds to compensate for the condition of the vehicle. Remember not all transports are equipped to handle non-operational vehicles. Also be aware that if the over all size of your vehicle differ from the original manufacturer specifications that will also add to your overall cost. So be sure to mention if you have done ANYTHING that would change the overall dimensions when you first call in for a quote.

One of the most frequent questions asked is: can I put some personal items in my car? Wheels On Wheels Carriers do NOT recommend that you do that. While our transporters are fully insured, it is for your vehicle only. Also drivers plan their loads based on the weight and size of each vehicle. If each vehicle is loaded with additional weight it may cause the driver to be over weight limitations. Each and every transporter has to stop at EVERY weigh station from your pick up location to the drop off. And if they are over weight not only will the transport time take longer (driver will have to unload at each weight station for DOT officials to inspect the extra weight) they will also be fined a per pound fee of the weight overage.

Another issue that comes up is delivery dates. All our pick up and delivery dates are estimated. While we would love to say none of our transporters ever break down, we just can’t. Problems happen. Anything from traffic jams to severe weather can effect the transit time. We will keep you informed if any major delays do occur. And no “waiting all day for the driver to show up”, your driver will give you a call at least 2hrs in advance of him estimating to arrive at your location. Be sure to plan ahead just in case, you never know when plan “B” will be needed.
