Auto Shipping FAQ: Why is Terminal Auto Shipping so Unsafe?

Terminal Auto ShippingIf you don’t know, there are two main ways of shipping a vehicle: door to door and terminal to terminal. The most commonly-used method of shipping a vehicle is door to door; with door to door shipping, carriers arrive at your door (or as close as possible, as there are many places an 80-ft transport truck simply cannot fit) and load your vehicle in front of you. Terminal auto shipping requires you to drop your vehicle off at a designated location, oftentimes little more than a storage shed or open field, where it will wait until the vehicle is picked up. There are several major reasons why terminal auto shipping is unsafe an not used as often as door to door transportation, perhaps the most important being the fact that you don’t actually get to see the vehicle for weeks on end.

Seriously, when you drop a vehicle off at a terminal, it’s often going to sit for days or weeks before it’s picked up. Auto shippers don’t like that for the same reason you may already be seeing – who is liable for damages if it sits in a place for weeks on end before it’s picked up? A carrier that picks up a damaged vehicle from a terminal doesn’t know how it got there, whether or not it was pre-existing, and will only note it on the inspection report. This can lead to conflict between the driver and the customer if the customer asserts it was in perfect condition when it was picked up. The carrier can point to the Bill of Lading and the inspection report and say they picked it up damaged, but the customer usually asserts it’s a lie, and the cycle continues. To avoid this, customers and carriers both tend to avoid terminal auto shipping services.

However, it’s still available if it’s absolutely necessary.
