What is a Car Shipping Pickup Window?

Car Shipping Pickup WindowSimply put, a car shipping pickup window is a length of time that you are given for your vehicle to be picked up. A lot of people think that auto transportation is an on-demand industry; i.e., you book your shipment and then you are given a date and time for the carrier to arrive. But the problem with that is the fact that carriers have to travel over the state-run and federal interstate highways that criss-cross the country, which means that they are susceptible to the same things that delay other motorists that are traveling on the roads, including traffic, weather delays and all the other things that can slow down travel over the road.

This is why they give a car shipping pickup window – instead of guaranteeing pickup or delivery times and dates, they will usually give a customer a 24-48 hour window in which they will arrive in order to account for delays along the road and also delays in picking up and delivering other vehicles along the way. Remember, most carriers operate open ten-car carriers, so they are often stopping to pickup or deliver vehicles while they are en route to pickup or deliver yours, and there are times when it can take a while especially if they have to shuffle the cars already on their truck.

Planning a route and all the pickups and deliveries on it is a tough gig, and with everything else they have to factor into any and every shipment, carriers have to make sure that they get to their customers in the car shipping pickup window that they gave. It’s simply too hard to adhere to a specific date and time but much easier for them to show up in within a day or two window. While this may cause some initial inconvenience for you, it’s ultimately better for everyone as it makes things easier and more cost-effective while also making sure that carriers don’t get unnecessarily dinged in reviews for things that are outside of their control.
