6 Reasons why Snowbirds Oakland Car Shipping is Best
Every year, we make many snowbirds car shipping deliveries from Colorado and other frosty states down to the more sunny states, such as California, Texas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi.
Why should you consider shipping your car during the winter months instead of driving, there are many reasons, but here are a few:-
- It’s safer than driving in the snow.
- It’s much quicker to ship your car and fly down – no rest stops, meals and overnights.
- It saves on wear and tear on your vehicle.
- You don’t have to change to snow tires.
- Car shipping reduces stress – who needs stress during vacation??
- It gives you more vacation time (a quick flight vs. days of road travel)
Snowbirds car shipping headed south usually starts picking up in October, which ultimately means transportation becomes cheaper for cars heading north. The opposite is true during March or April when the snowbirds head back up north. If your time is flexible, that window will provide you with the best rates. Find out more about our Shipping rates.
Oakland Car Shipping FAQ
Is my vehicle insured while in transit?
Yes. The US Department of Transportation requires all auto transporters maintain a valid insurance policy. Nationwide Auto Transportation takes the additional step of requiring all carriers in their network to list them as additionally insured. This means that, in the unlikely event of an accident, if that agent is unable to cover the claim, Nationwide Auto Transportation is able to file the claim through their insurance company directly.
Can I load my vehicle up with personal items?
It is not recommended to place any personal items in your vehicle during Oakland car shipping service. Not only are items not insured during transport, but the DOT regulates what can be transported. The DOT can fine a transporter $10,000 if found to be carrying household goods. Moving companies are the only companies licensed to transport household goods. No firearms, hazardous materials, or illegal contraband are allowed at any time.
Which methods of payment are acceptable?
Nationwide Auto Transportation accepts all major credit cards or any type of certified funds prior to vehicle shipment. If you wish to pay upon delivery, a deposit is required to schedule your Oakland car shipping service and the balance must be paid in full to the driver in cash or certified funds.
Do I have to be present for pickup and / or delivery?
Yes. Either you or an authorized agent must be present to sign for the condition of your vehicle at both pickup and delivery.
How far in advance should I plan my Oakland car shipping service?
Placing your vehicle shipment order as far in advance as possible, will help ensure your vehicle is picked up and delivered within your requested time frame.
Where will my vehicle be picked up and delivered?
Your vehicle will be both picked up and delivered as close to your specified addresses as is physically possible. Certain government residential restrictions may prevent our drivers from arriving at your exact residence or there may be loading safety regulation issues. If we should find we are unable to arrive at a specified address, one of our agents will contact you to make appropriate arrangements.
