The Pros and Cons of Terminal to Terminal Auto Transport

The Pros and Cons of Terminal to Terminal Auto TransportAs far as car transportation methods go, terminal to terminal auto transport is a dying part of the industry. We’ve said this before, too, but that blog only gave a few minor details regarding the state of terminal to terminal shipping and didn’t really discuss the pros and cons of it. Though terminals are generally only found in major metropolitan areas, which means some people may not have access to them, there are still quite a few around despite the decline in demand for their services. Terminals provide both short and long-term storage options for vehicles, but on the whole customers would rather keep their vehicles at something like an airport, which is protected and secured, whereas terminals typically are not. This can cause problems down the road, but we’re getting a bit ahead of ourselves.

The people who benefit most from terminal to terminal shipping are those that don’t have the time or the schedule to wait around for a carrier to pick their vehicle up from them directly. Dropping your vehicle off at a terminal can help you get back to your busy life, and let someone else handle all the paperwork and the like for pickup and delivery. The terminal operator will likely call you after your vehicle has been picked up as well as delivered, so you’re still in the loop. However, as mentioned, terminals are rarely very secure. This does drop the price down a bit, sure, but carriers don’t like picking up from terminals because they can be a hassle – finding the car, finding the right keys, getting the paperwork signed, etc. – and because of this, it’s much easier done with the customer themselves as opposed to a terminal operative. Terminal to terminal shipping may also end up taking more time from drop off at pickup to pickup at delivery, because carriers prefer door to door routes more than terminal ones.

Typically, when you fill out our free online quote form the quotes you get from our advertisers will be for door-to-door transportation services on an open ten-car carrier. This is the standard method of shipping in the industry and any variants or deviations from it tend to cause delays. Terminal to terminal shipping, being cheaper than door to door, is not as enticing to trucks because it does not pay as much usually; this can be rectified by offering to pay more to the carrier, but terminals themselves are not really popular among carriers and they try to avoid them if they can. We recommend speaking to your auto transport representative about ways to go about transporting your vehicle as well, as they can work with you regarding any scheduling conflicts or the like.
