    Car Shipping FAQ's


    Q. How long will it take my vehicle to be shipped?

    A. On average it will take three to fourteen days for your auto to reach its destination. Factors such as distances between pick up and delivery, weather and traffic will all affect the total length of time of transport.

    Q. Are there charges to use haulingdepot.com?

    A.There is no charge or to use our services. Haulingdepot.com is a free service to consumers to find the most reliable & affordable auto shippers, saving you time & money on your auto transport!

    Q. How long in advance do I need to book my auto transport?

    A. It's highly recommended that you book your transport at least two weeks in advance. Some of our network brokers and carriers can accommodate on transport on a much shorter notice. If this is the case ask for expedited car transport.

    Q. Will my vehicle be insured during transport?

    A. Yes. All auto carriers must carry insurance to be legal and approved by the DOT. The industry minimum is $100,000. We recommend that you ask to see a copy of their certificate of insurance for proof. Also, read the terms and conditions of your agreement carefully to see what is and isn't covered. For more information visit transport & insurance.

    Q. Must all auto transport brokers and car carriers be licensed?

    A. Yes. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration must issue all auto carriers an MC# and/or US DOT#, in order to have proper operating authority. Brokers must be bonded and have valid MC#'s. Bonding information can be checked through safersys.com, and is strongly recommended to do so before choosing an auto transporter.

    Q. How should I prepare my vehicle for auto transport?

    A. If you are going to a cold climate, make sure you have winterized your vehicle by adding antifreeze. Secure any loose items such as antennas. Disconnect auto alarms and anti-theft systems. Remove any car covers, and bras as they are not allowed by car carriers during open transport. Enclosed transport is different & may be allowed.

    Q. Can I store anything in the car?

    A. It is illegal to store items anywhere in the car. Auto transporters are not licensed to carry household goods. In addition any items stored within the car or vehicle are not covered under the carriers insurance as well.

    Q. Will I need to have my vehicle delivered to a terminal?

    A. Shipping terminlas are necessary in the event there is not enough room for a truck to drop off your vehicle at it's destination, because of a narrow or dead end street, or any other conditions that would not allow a truck to enter. A terminal would also be used in the event no one is available to accept the vehicle upon delivery. These terminals are fully licensed and insured. It should be noted that terminal shipping is generally less expensive than door to door vehicle shipping as well.

    Q. What forms of payment is accepted by vehicle transporters?

    A. Auto transport brokers and carriers accept cashier and certified checks as well as cash and credit cards for the deposit. The balance is due upon delivery and only cash, cashiers or certified checks is accepted unless other arrangements have been made prior to your transport! Every auto transport company has their own payment policy. Make sure you know it by asking and reading the agreement.

    Q. What if my vehicle is inoperable, can it still be transported?

    A. Yes, it can be transported, regardless of condition. (rolling, non operattonal or not able to roll.) However, addditonal fees will apply as extra transport & towing equipment and labor are needed when transporting your vehicle.
