If you fill out our free auto transport quote request form, every quote you receive will be for door to door auto transport. Simply put, door to door shipping is where the carrier will go to your residence to pick up and deliver your vehicle. While there are many areas that an auto transport truck can get to,there likely many more they cannot. Usually the issue is size; auto transport trucks can be 80 feet long, and if you live in a cul-de-sac, apartment building, or if your street is known for its low-hanging trees, your carrier will likely be unable to get to you directly.

If this is the case, you will have to meet your carrier somewhere nearby. Don’t worry, it usually won’t be very far. Your carrier will almost always prefer to meet in a shopping area, like a mall or big grocery store parking lot, since they will have more room to maneuver, to more easily load or unload your vehicle. If your carrier can’t get directly to your door, you will discuss with your driver the best area to meet, most likely over the phone.

In other words, you will not have to drop your vehicle off somewhere and leave it, and this is actually not recommended due to the fact that you will need to sign the Bill of Lading, an important document that acts as the official contract and receipt of your shipment. But that’s for another video.
