Car Shipping to Raleigh, North CarolinaRaleigh is a city in as well as the capital of the entire state of North Carolina. It is the second-largest city by population in the state, after Charlotte, and is currently home to a population of over 431,700 total residents in the city proper. The city is named after Sir Walter Raleigh, the famous explorer. Raleigh has experienced a rich and vibrant history dating back to its founding in 1788; it was also one of the first planned cities in the United States, as it was chosen as the capital of North Carolina from the beginning. Raleigh today is perhaps best known for being the home of the University of North Carolina and a major part of the “Research Triangle” area, which includes Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill.

Raleigh is a popular vehicle shipping location on account of the fact that it anchors a fairly large metropolitan area and is also close to several other metro areas. The Raleigh metro area is the largest in the region, and in the state it is second only to Charlotte’s in terms of population. Metropolitan areas are great when it comes to shipping a vehicle because they allow carriers to service multiple customers in one area; this helps carriers keep their operating costs lower, and they can make more money per city if they stick to the big ones. This in turn helps them keep their prices more competitive, which means lower prices and better services to and from major cities, including Raleigh.

Car shipping to Raleigh is also made easier by the fact that it is relatively easy to get into and out of, which makes it easier for car transporters to build their routes and get the vehicles they need to ship transported quickly and efficiently. They prefer to stick to major interstate highways as much as possible, as they’re the fastest way between two cities and they tend to run through the largest in any given state. In North Carolina it is no different, and Raleigh is serviced by several interstates, notably I-40. Both I-85 and I-95 run routes close to the city, which also helps as carriers have multiple ways to get to Raleigh to pickup or deliver a vehicle. This helps keep their transportation prices lower, which should help keep yours lower as well.

Motorcycle Shipping QuotesWe here at American Auto Shipping can get you quotes for just about any vehicle that can roll, brake and steer – so long as it is a vehicle that can be driven, it can be shipped. Motorcycles are a different beast than a standard car, though, and there are a few things that you should be aware of when searching for motorcycle shipping quotes. To start, motorcycles are typically cheaper to ship than a standard vehicle due to their size; it’s easier for companies to move smaller vehicles as they have more room on their trucks. However, motorcycles cannot be shipped on a standard carrier like a normal car or truck can, which requires a bit more work to find a company that can handle a motorcycle.

Luckily, they’re a lot more common than, say, flatbed-only transporters. Since motorcycles can’t fit on a standard auto transport truck, they’re usually crated and either shipped in a special enclosed container or on the back of a flatbed truck. While these are a bit more difficult to find than a standard vehicle carrier, the small size of the motorcycle – and the fact that motorcycles are shipped fairly often – should help keep your prices more affordable even on non-standard trucks.

Motorcycles tend to be crated when they are shipped. This means that, upon pickup, your motorcycle will be rolled onto a pallet and secured, and then a wooden crate is built around it, completely enclosing it. This is actually really good for you, as crating usually is included in your motorcycle shipping quotes and it helps protect your motorcycle from getting banged around on the back of the truck. It also helps save space while keeping the bike free of damage, and overall allows shippers to haul more motorcycles at a time than otherwise.

If you are interested in shipping a motorcycle and need some motorcycle shipping quotes, take a minute to fill out our free online auto transportation quote request form. In the “Make” section of the quote form, simply type “motorcycle” and then choose whether it is over or under 500cc engine size. This will give the shippers that get your information a lot more detail in regards to how large the motorcycle is, and will allow them to get you a more accurate shipping quote. You should get anywhere from 7-10 free quotes emailed to you within an hour of submission. If you have questions about our services, or would rather talk to a live person to give your information to, you can call us any time at 800-930-7417 to speak to one of our live agents.

direct carrier auto transport quotesOne of the most crucial things in the auto transport industry is actually paying for your shipment. Shipping a vehicle from one part of the country to another is a time-consuming and expensive process for a customer, but it’s even more stressful for the carrier, who has to actually ship those vehicles for all those different customers, all while doing it for as little money as they can (in order to stay competitive in the industry) and as quickly as they can without breaking the law. Drivers are often on the road for ten hours or more at a time, and have to deal with being able to get their trucks into and out of a variety of different locations quickly. Not only that, but their overhead is really high – they have to spend quite a bit of money to even operate those huge trucks they drive, and keeping them fueled and maintained take a big chunk out of their paychecks. This is why you should never ship a car if you cannot pay for it come delivery.

This is really a no-brainer, but in today’s day and age a lot of customers think that every industry works the same way; they can pay as little as possible while still getting quality services – but that’s not how the vehicle shipping industry really works. When you ship a vehicle you have to have your payment ready upon delivery. Most companies will be happy to work with you in getting your vehicle shipped and paid for, but after a point you have a moral and legal responsibility to pay your shipper for transporting and delivering your vehicle. If you don’t pay, your carrier can and likely will hold your vehicle on their truck and not deliver it until they do get paid.

This is obviously something that no one wants to deal with, and while it doesn’t happen very often it does indeed happen. It doesn’t matter why you can’t pay – even if you’ve had a catastrophic emergency, no car transport carrier is going to ship a vehicle for free. If something comes up and you cannot pay, your vehicle will be held until you can, and many companies will simply drop the vehicle off at a local long-term storage facility where it will stay until you pay the total balance. Different shippers have different methods of collecting payment from customers, but at the end of the day you won’t get your car if you can’t pay for the shipment, so don’t try to pull the wool over anyone’s eyes – it almost always backfires.

If you’re interested in shipping a vehicle the legitimate way and are trying to find a company that can handle it, we recommend taking a minute to fill out our free online vehicle shipping quote request form. It takes only a minute from start to finish and, when you’re done, you’ll have multiple quotes emailed to you from some of the best vehicle shipping companies in the industry.

Household Moving to Fort Wayne, IndianaFort Wayne is a city located in – and it is also the county seat of – Allen County, in the U.S. state of Indiana. It is the second-largest city in the state by population, after Indianapolis, and is currently home to a population of over 258,200 residents. Fort Wayne is also the anchor of the Fort Way Metropolitan Statistical Area, which spans three counties and is home to over 419,400 residents. Fort Wayne may not be as popular of a household moving location as Indianapolis, but there are always people who are going to need household moving to Fort Wayne and also from the city, so you should not have a hard time finding household moving quotes or services for your shipment to or from the city.

You should not have too hard a time finding household moving to Fort Wayne, at least considering the city’s size. Household moving companies choose their loads and their routes a bit differently than auto shippers do, and with the size and popularity of Fort Wayne it’s not all that surprising that household moving services tend to be well-priced to and from most cities in the country. Household movers do prefer running routes to and from big cities like auto shippers do, as well as most companies that rely on shipping goods across the country. On the whole this should help your transportation prices and how quickly you can get your household goods picked up.

Moving to Fort Wayne shouldn’t be too difficult, but the city is old, and many areas pre-date the invention of the automobile, which means that some areas may be harder for an interstate mover to get to than others. This should not affect your price all that much, but it can, especially if an intestate mover has to rely on a local moving company with smaller trucks in order to get your goods to you. If an interstate moving truck is too large to get into a specific neighborhood, they need to transfer your goods to a local mover, which will cost time and take a day or two to get setup. Your moving company will inform you of this ahead of time, so you don’t have to worry about that, but keep it in mind – it’s not like you can just meet them somewhere else like you can when you ship a car.

However, if you are interested in household moving to Fort Wayne, Indiana, you can take a minute to fill out our dedicated household moving quote request form on our Household Moving Articles page. It takes only a minute to fill out the form and submit it, but once it’s submitted your information will be received by some of the best moving companies in the industry.

Auto transport to Buffalo, New YorkBuffalo is a city located in Erie County, in the U.S. state of New York. It is also the county seat of Erie County and, with a population of over 258,700 residents, Buffalo is the second-largest city in New York, after New York City. Buffalo is a part of the Buffalo-Syracuse-Rochester line of cities on the southern shores of Lake Erie, which sees lots of snow during the winter months but is also well-known for being the home to major manufacturing companies during the early half of the 20th century. Buffalo itself experienced large growth thanks to the construction of the Erie Canal and the subsequent opening up of markets further west for goods made in Buffalo. While the economy experienced major downtown during the latter half of the 20th century, Buffalo – like many manufacturing cities in the north – is slowly starting to diversify, grow and fix the issues that deindustrialization brought.

Buffalo is not as popular of a car shipping location as, say, New York City, but then again no city is as popular as New York City simply because of how large it is. Buffalo is home to over 258,000 residents, and anchors a metro area of over 1.1 million residents, which is actually really good news when it comes to shipping a vehicle because car transporters prefer to run routes into and out of major cities that anchor large, sprawling metropolitan areas. Of course, Buffalo is not as popular as other cities in the northeast due to its size and its location in western New York, so prices may be a bit higher, but on the whole you should not have any trouble shipping to or from Buffalo because of its size.

At the same time, snow and ice is common in the area, and Buffalo has been known to get shellacked by winter storms off of Lake Erie that dump feet of snow in the city. Obviously this amount of snow can cause serious delays for people and can completely paralyze the city; because of this, auto transporters have to keep an eye on the weather reports during the fall and winter months because the shift in weather can be quick and sudden. You may end up having to pay more for auto transport to Buffalo simply for this reason, so make sure to talk to a live agent about it and learn more about shipping to or from Buffalo.

If you are interested in auto transport to Buffalo, though, you really should take a minute to fill out our free online vehicle shipping quote request form. It takes only a minute and nets you multiple free quotes from some of the best car shipping companies in the industry. They understand the ins and outs of shipping a vehicle to or from Buffalo, New York, and can give you good ideas about how to approach it and also give you competitive prices.
