Don’t drive an electric vehicle yet. No need to panic, you too can contribute to the reduction of vehicle emissions by transporting your vehicle on a car hauler cross country instead of driving it. Think of it this way… Instead of ten families driving their minivans cross country put them on a trailer and have only 1 trailer drive them cross country; thereby, reducing the emissions by more than half for that cross country trip.
You’ve decided to ship your car from one location to a place that’s too far for you to drive it. You could be moving to a new place, you could have just purchased a vintage car that – for any number of reasons – is inoperable at the moment, and so on.
Many people use or own golf carts but don’t golf. It’s true: the golf cart manufacturing industry grew by 3.1 percent in 2018, reaching revenue of $1 billion. And not all those carts were sold to golfers. Not by a long shot: they were sold to hotels, resorts (for in-resort transportation), colleges/universities, estate owners and managers, and – perhaps especially to the great benefit of those who live there – in active retirement living communities.
Buyer Beware! We see this advice pretty much everywhere, but we don’t always heed it. Yet it’s especially important to be very careful when it comes to choosing a shipping company to transport your car or other vehicles: scams in the auto transport industry are, unfortunately, plentiful. Especially in our current age of Internet sales and services.
You’re moving. A long way. Several hundred miles away. And so you either don’t want to or don’t have the time to drive your car to your new home yourself. Time to find a reliable auto transport company! But if you Google “reliable auto transport company” up will pop 52.9 million results (we checked).
Moving is expensive, especially if working with a moving company (although making a move yourself is not inexpensive either).
The same goes for shipping an automobile or other vehicle: chances are good it’s going to cost you a few hundred dollars. The average cross-country shipment for a four-door sedan can run from $700-$1200 in an open carrier; possibly as much as $2000 if you ship it in an enclosed carrier.
