Services - Riteway Auto Transport

Transporting your standard car from one location to another is not the easiest of things to arrange, but we here at Rite Way have been doing it for years, and we've seen just about everything that you can think of (and probably a few things that you can't) in terms of car transportation. That's why we've taken to writing this article about how your standard everyday coupe or sedan is shipped, and what you can expect come transport time and what you can do to make it easier on you and the carrier in the long run.

Most quotes that we give out for a car are for door-to-door transport via an open auto shipping carrier. This is the cheapest and most cost-effective method of transportation, and is perfectly good for close to 90% of all auto transport customers out there. This is what we consider our "base" service, the barebones package, if you will – it's where we start when compiling our quotes. That's what makes our car transport services so great – your quote is tailored to your specific vehicle, sure, but most cars are of the standard variety regardless of make or model, so there is little in the way of adjustment on our end, which allows us to get you the lowest possible rate.

When transporting a standard car, you want to make sure that you take any antennas off the vehicle (if at all possible) to avoid damaging them. Also, please refrain from washing your vehicle prior to pickup – the thin layer of dirt will actually do a lot to protect your vehicle from the more minute threats (such as errant debris kicked up from passing motorists) associated with auto transport. Also, please make sure to clean the cab of your vehicle – it doesn't have to necessarily be spotless, but there cannot be anything in sight that isn't stock (for instance, loose change and garbage need to go; the floor mats, however, can stay).

Much of the price for your car transport services will actually be tied up in where you're shipping from and to. Unlike larger vehicles like pickup trucks and SUV's, which usually come with some sort of price increase to offset the additional weight and size of the vehicle, cars are considered standard-sized pretty much no matter what kind of car it is, so most of your cost will be the base cost of the route that your vehicle will be traveling along. This makes it easier for us to price your shipment, as well as easier for us to find you a carrier. That will simply make things easier (not to mention faster and cheaper) for you as well.
