Having Your Car Shipped During the Holidays

16590161_SFor many, there’s no place like home for the holidays. Others may want to get far away from home and spend the later part of December exploring a new part of the country. At the end of the day, millions of Americans travel each year during the holiday season, and often during some inclement weather.

Having your car shipped to your destination can help you enjoy some familiarity when you’re out with your family in a strange location. Many people want to fly or take a train to their vacation spot and not have to worry about driving their own car through sleet and snow. A courier service, like the one offered by us here at Car Couriers, can grant you the peace of mind that you’ll be able to enjoy your stay in a strange land.

There are a few unique concerns that need to be considered before hiring a car shipping service, especially during the holiday season. Plan for the courier service to need a few extra days in order to get your car to its intended destination safely. With the weather getting dicier, a driver for any courier service is going to think of safety first, both for himself and the vehicle. Before you get frustrated that your car doesn’t arrive on time, think about giving your driver a few extra days to make the trip.

Make sure that there’s not a lot of excess clutter filling up your car before you have it shipped. Couriers often have to have their cars weighed, and even just a few extra pounds can lead to extra fines from weigh-in stations that ultimately are passed on to you. As well, you’ll want to make sure valuables are out of the car. Even if you trust the driver, it’s no guarantee that someone else won’t try to act improperly if the vehicle is unattended.

The holidays should be a season of rejoicing with family, not worrying about your vehicle. Trust the experts at Car Couriers Inc. to get your car to your intended destination on time and without a scratch. You’ll be glad you trusted your holiday driving experience with us.
