Timing is everything when you are thinking about getting your car to Florida. As soon as the weather starts to get cooler, Snowbirds start dreaming about getting out of the cold. Most snowbirds who have made the trek know that driving from the Northeast usually takes two to three days. Wouldn’t it be better to get on a plane and leave the driving to someone else?
It is not as difficult as you think. Here are some transportation options to consider for some peace of mind before hopping on your flight to head down south.
Open or enclosed car shipping?
The answer to this question depends upon your budget and the kind of vehicle you are transporting. If it is a classic or a luxury car, you might want to consider enclosed transport for an extra layer of protection. Open transport is a safe, reliable but less expensive method of transport.
Door to door car transport or terminal to terminal service?
Door to door is exactly that. You select your exact pick up and preferred drop off location. It is a super convenient way to transport your car to Florida when and where you need it. The other option is to deliver your car to a place where it will be picked up by the transport service. When you arrive at your destination you can retrieve your vehicle from the carrier’s drop off location. While door to door is extremely convenient, terminal to terminal can be a more cost-effective option.
There are pros and cons for each. To find out which shipping method is right for you, it is best to work with a car transportation shipping advisor. Consider working with a company that can make the experience as stress free as possible for you. After all, wouldn’t it be nice to get off your flight, drop your luggage at home, and drive straight to the beach in your own car.
