Use Terminal Car Shipping Only if You Need To

Terminal Car Shipping ServicesA lot of people like the idea of terminal car shipping. It’s cheaper than standard shipping, you just drop your car off and you’re good. But there are some truths that you may be unaware of when you ship a car terminal to terminal, and we’re going to explain some of them today. To start, most smaller cities don’t even have a terminal. They’re typically only located in major cities, and many times share space at an airport terminal, believe it or not. Many of them are not well secured, and some are simply open lots. This can prove problematic, wouldn’t you say?

Is Terminal Car Shipping Unsafe?

Now, we’re not saying that. We are saying, however, that you should proceed with caution when using terminal car shipping services. It is true that it’s generally cheaper than door to door service, but it definitely is less secure. For starters, you lose the ability to do a pickup and delivery inspection. Sure, some terminals let you inspect the car with someone at the terminal. But most don’t. That, and the fact that you won’t be there to sign off on the Bill of Lading. And that’s a real problem. If there is no one at the terminal, the carrier can simply pick it up and fill out the BoL themselves. This can result in unreported damages, which means they won’t be covered by the carrier’s insurance.

But isn’t that fraud?

Yes and no. On the one hand, carriers can’t just falsify a Bill of Lading. They have to provide an inspection report and sign off on it. But it’s not unheard of for a carrier to get lazy and simply do everything at delivery. They can’t get away with that when you ship door to door because you’re there to oversee both loading and unloading, and you sign off on the Bill of Lading before they load it. Not so with terminal car shipping. Now, we don’t want to scare you – the companies that do this are rare indeed. But couple that with lack of security at the terminal itself, and the fact that cars tend to sit longer waiting for pickup when they’re shipped terminal, and you end up with a lot of ingredients for a bad car shipping experience.
