ShipMyRide Shipping

If you are thinking about shipping your vehicle, you are probably asking this question: would it be cheaper to pay a company to get my vehicle moved or should I do it myself? Truth be told, there’s not a specific answer to this question. It depends on your situation. Let’s take a look at some expenses that you will have to go through in any of these 2 scenarios.

First of all, having your vehicle shipped by a company requires 2 big expenses: the cost of shipping your vehicle with whatever company and the airfare to get to your destination. However, you need to keep in mind that the drivers who will handle your car shipping process are certificated to do so and the chances of your car being involved in an accident are fewer. They also care about others on the road with them, so they make sure your car is secured and safe. Most cross-country auto transport takes around 7-14 days.

Another advantage of hiring someone to ship your vehicle is that it takes way less days than doing it by yourself. If you decide to ship your vehicle by yourself you’ll likely have to spend the night somewhere, and the wear and tear on you and your car need to be calculated into the expense for your move.

Another important thing you may want to take into consideration on shipping your vehicle by yourself is that it may take up to 3 days, depending on the distance and stops you have planned, so an invisible expense is the money you will be loosing for not working those days you spend on the road.

Not everything is wrong with shipping your vehicle by yourself, you’ll get to see the country and places you thought you’d never see! Especially if you are shipping your car across the country. You can even make some stops at certain destinations along your way.

Bottom line is, depending on your situation, you may prefer hiring someone to ship your vehicle or shipping it by yourself!
