Can I Make My Car Shipping Transit Time Faster?

Car Shipping Transit TimeIn the auto transport industry, one of the really important things that you can know when shipping a car is the concept of transit time, and the fact that it’s hard to find ways to make your car shipping transit time any faster than it already is. To clarify, the term “transit time” refers to how long it takes for a carrier to get from Point A to Point B, not including the time it takes to load and unload the vehicle at pickup and delivery. Transit time refers to how long those companies are on the road getting your vehicle to where you want it to go, and naturally it’s a subjective term, as how long it’ll take to get your vehicle to you will depend on a number of factors including where you’re shipping from and to, the time of year you’re shipping, the company you book with, the type of truck they use, the driver’s schedule, traffic and congestion and diversions along alternate routes…the list goes on, and on, as you can imagine.

So figuring out ways to make your car shipping transit time faster is going to be difficult, thanks to all those different factors that all have a role to play. For instance, during the summer months it might only take a few days to get a car from Minneapolis to Kansas City, but during the winter months snow and ice can cause delays for carriers trying to get into and out of Minnesota. Carriers don’t like snow and ice and things like that, so during the winter it’ll be harder to find one willing to go there when the weather is bad. Now, during the summer months this isn’t an issue, as the sun is out and the snow is gone and the weather is nice. This is just one example of how things that are in absolutely nobody’s control can affect your car shipping transit time.

In terms of actually making your car shipping transit time faster, there’s not a whole lot you can do, sadly. Carriers can only drive so far and for so long, with limits on both imposed by the federal government for safety purposes. While some are able to bend the rules from time to time, it’s not going to much much difference, and transit time from coast-to-coast, which is a good starting point when figuring out transit time, will still be anywhere from 10-14 days. The best you can do is estimate the transit time and plan accordingly, like you would if you bought something off of Amazon. Typically, a carrier can drive anywhere from 300-400 miles in a day, depending on route and other loads on said route, but 300 miles per day is a good estimate. That puts a cross-country trip at 10 days.
