Auto Transport Tips: Finding SUV Shipping Services
In today’s United States, choice and freedom are everything; you have the right to choose where you live, where you work, what you eat and what you watch on TV and the internet. Of course, our circumstances often limit our choices – you can’t rent an apartment or buy a house that’s out of your price range, and many people can’t simply “find another job” due to their skillset, but our country is founded on freedom and choice, even when it comes to something as simple as the type of vehicle you buy. Sport utility vehicles are not nearly as popular as they used to be, mostly because many of them are expensive to own, operate and maintain, but there are still many SUV’s on the market and there will always be customers that need SUV shipping services. Which is why we’re writing this blog.
SUV shipping services shouldn’t be all that difficult to find, but how much you pay and how long it will take will depend very much on where you’re shipping from and to and how big your SUV is – and, to an extent, when you’re shipping it. As you know, SUV’s come in a variety of different shapes and sizes and colors, but most all of them (aside from the compact SUV’s) are going to be bigger than your average sedan, usually more on par with a small pickup truck. Some of them get absolutely massive, like the Chevrolet Tahoe or the Ford Expedition, and even more so if you decide to throw a lift kit on. Typically, the larger the SUV, the more expensive SUV shipping services are going to be.
This is why it’s important to always have the dimensions of your sport utility vehicle on hand when you start getting quotes to ship it. Since SUV’s all vary in size, pricing the shipment of one isn’t going to be as cut-and-dry as it is with a standard-sized car. Length and height can increase price if they’re too high, and weight is a serious issue for a carrier – if their load is too heavy and they pass through a weigh station and get caught being overweight, that carrier is going to be late for delivery of every vehicle they’re hauling, and the extra weight will need to be found and removed, which could mean your vehicle ends up getting dropped off at a weigh station to wait for another carrier who can ship it. In other words, when you’re searching for SUV shipping services, have the dimensions on-hand so your representative will be able to price it accordingly so nothing bad happens.
