How Car Carriers Ship Multiple Vehicles
Are you trying to ship multiple vehicles? While most auto transporters have the ability to ship multiple vehicles, many times they’re vehicles from different customers. Handling one order with multiple vehicles can be much more challenging, and there are some things that you need to know and understand about it before you book an order. Read about how car carriers – and brokers, too – ship multiple vehicles in a single order and prepare yourself for when your vehicles are shipped.
A bit about how companies ship multiple vehicles
Most brokers handle multi-car shipments on an irregular basis, but they can usually do it just fine. It’s mostly just more paperwork, but every car that you ship will have to be accounted for. Naturally, you’re probably thinking, and that’s fine. But anyway, brokers can handle shipping multiple vehicles in an order all day long; the real problem lies in finding the right carrier for their customers’ needs. So if you’re shipping multiple pickup trucks, they may need to find an appropriate flatbed if they are large enough. Otherwise, they have to find a carrier that has enough open spaces to accommodate all your vehicles.
And if you’re trying to ship more than ten vehicles – which itself is a daunting task – then more than one truck will be required. Most of the time they can find a few but it generally takes a lot more time to actually find them. So don’t be surprised if it can take a few weeks for all your vehicles to be picked up. On the whole, though, your agent should be able to handle it. Just make sure to give them the time they need, and make sure you follow all their instructions accordingly.
