Standby Auto Transport and What it Means for You

Standby Auto Transport and What it Means for YouWhen you use standard auto transportation services, your vehicle will generally be picked up within four to seven days from your date of booking. That’s average. It will likely get picked up faster if you pay additional money to entice carriers to pick it up – this practice is generally known as expedited shipping, and can vary in price depending on your route and carrier availability.

And then there’s the opposite end of the spectrum – pay a lower price and hope that a carrier that comes along is desperate enough to need to transport your vehicle for lower than the going rate, or else wait and see if the prices on your route drop and even out to where your vehicle will be picked up by a carrier.

These are things that you must be prepared for when it comes to transporting a vehicle via standby transportation services. Pickup times generally go into the months category, as your price will likely be significantly lower than the rest of the loads on your route and carriers won’t usually touch it with a ten-foot pole – it doesn’t net them enough money to make it a worthwhile load. It’s a waiting game, generally waiting for prices to drop along your route.

Sometimes this can happen in a matter of weeks, as prices do change often along many routes. Other times it can take months, because prices on some routes only change as the seasons change.

Generally during the winter months many areas of the northern U.S. are inaccessible due to severe winter weather. Shipping out of these areas during the winter generally puts your vehicle on standby regardless of how much you pay considering few carriers are willing to risk their trucks, loads and lives to get a vehicle in the middle of a snow-savaged area.

Most auto transport companies don’t advertise standby shipping services because so few people actually want them, and even then many customers end up becoming belligerent when they realize what standby shipping services actually entail. You should expect your vehicle to be sitting for quite some time if you choose to ship standby.

Customers that can benefit from standby shipping most are those that do not need their vehicle shipped right away. For instance, if you buy a car from a private seller in another area of the U.S., but all it really is is a project car you’re looking at restoring, you may save some money with standby shipping services. Or customers that are shipping a few months out – book it now and see what happens, and if prices rise or fall your broker can help adjust your order accordingly.
