Car Transport Services By ASWD
Best Car Transportation Services In The Industry!
When it comes to car transport services, consumers are faced with a huge range of choices. However, selecting a car transport service choice doesn’t have to be a complicated headache. Once you’re familiar with the types of car transportation services available, it’s a simple matter of requesting a shipping quote and asking the right questions.
Types Of Car Transportation Services
In order to choose the right auto shipping service for you, it’s important to have a good understanding of the services available to you. Some car shipping companies like All State Worldwide will offer multiple options and services, while some companies will specialize in a few specific types of transport.
Car Transportation Services From State to State vs. International Car Shipping
Are you looking to ship a car within the United States? Or are you looking to ship a car out of the country? Some car transportation services only offer domestic service, while others specialize in international auto transport. Allstate worldwide offers national vehicle transport services from state to state as well as international car shipping out of the U.S.
Door-to-door Car Transportation Service vs. Terminal-to-terminal Auto Shipping
Door to door car transport will pick up your auto at your house or another convenient location and also drop off as close to your desired destination as possible. Door to door transport offers flexibility and convenience for the customer, but is slightly more expensive than terminal to terminal shipping.
Terminal-to-terminal auto shipping services allow car shipping companies to deliver entire shipments from one location to another location, saving time and money. This makes terminal shipping cheaper than door to door service. Terminal-to-terminal shipping is good for those who can arrange for transportation to and from the terminal location, though sometimes the location of the terminal may be quite far away and inconvenient for the customer. In addition to the added inconvenience of having to arrange for drop off and pick up from the terminal locations – because the shipments from the drop off terminal must be consolidated before the shipment leaves (unlike door to door services that pick up and drop off along the way) – your vehicle may spend extra time sitting in a terminal parking lot until there is a full load to ship. This can result in added shipping delays as well as more time for your car to sit outside, exposed to the elements.

It’s important to note that even if a company offers door-to-door vehicle transport services, residential areas may have municipal bylaws restricting access to the large trucks that will carry your car to its final destination. Additionally, the narrow roads, and low hanging wires in many residential neighborhoods make it difficult for large multi-level trailers to enter and load up your car. If this is the case, door-to-door auto transport companies can arrange to pick up your car in an accessible, but convenient public area for you such as a mall parking lot.
Because most of the trucks used by All State Worldwide are 75 feet in length, it is virtually impossible for them to access most residential areas. For this reason, All State Worldwide generally arranges for pick up of your vehicle at an accessible location that is convenient for you. Generally, local shopping centers provide a good amount of space for loading your car as well as convenient access for the consumer and the truck, but any large parking lot makes a great pick up/drop off location.
Open Car vs. Enclosed Auto Transport Services
The default standard for car transportation services is to deliver cars on open multi-level trailers, or smaller open flatbed trucks. However, for those looking for high-end exotic or classic car transport, enclosed auto transport services are available. While this service costs an additional premium, it allows your vehicle to be delivered in a closed trailer where it will avoid exposure to potential dust, grime, gravel and vandalism.
While enclosed car shipping is recommended for high-end vehicles, for most vehicles, open car transport is an ideal solution. Open car transport services are not only cheaper than enclosed car transportation, but since there are usually a higher volume of open car shipments, shipping dates will generally be more flexible when you choose an open car shipping option (though this is not always the case). While there is an extremely small risk of paint chipping or other minor damage when a car is on an open transport, it is very rare, and any damage that does occur is insured. All State Worldwide offers regular open transport services as well as exotic and classic car transport services in enclosed auto haulers.

What To Look For When Choosing Auto Transportation Services
Once you know the types of car transport services available to you, it’s a simple matter of considering your own budget, shipping time line, and getting an auto transport quote, which you can get from All States Worldwide by using the quote form at the top of the page.
One more additional consideration to take into account when selecting car transportation services is insurance. In the extremely rare case that something unforeseen happens during shipment, you’ll want to ensure that your vehicle is protected for its full value. There are some cheap fly-by-night car transportation services that cut corners (illegally) by skimping on insurance, so always ask questions and ensure that there is an adequate insurance policy in place before choosing a carrier.
All States Worldwide may offer affordable car transportation services, but we will never cut corners. Our staff takes special care to ensure that your vehicle is cared for, covered for accidents, and that you are happy with the level of service and knowledge we provide. All cars transported with All State Worldwide are insured for their full Kelly Blue Book value, and the terms and conditions of your insurance are stated clearly on your shipping order as well as the bill of lading, and we also perform a full condition report on pick up.
