What happens if my vehicle is not operable at the time of delivery during auto shipping?

There is an additional charge for inoperable vehicles, depending on the technical reason why they don't work. If the driver comes to pick up the vehicle and they haven't told us that the vehicle isn't working, you'll lose the deposit if the driver can't charge it. A car that doesn't drive is just as it sounds. It's a car that doesn't work or isn't safe to drive.

Therefore, automatic shipping services are required to transport the car. Many cars are in this condition due to collision damage, ultimately leading to mechanical failure. However, there are other cases in which the inoperable car turns out to be a classic car that is being worked on to return it to its former glory. If you've bought a car at an auto auction like Copart or Insurance Auto Auctions, and it's not working, you're probably looking for the fastest and safest way to have it delivered directly to you.

Once you find a company that will send you the vehicle that is not in operation, they will take care of most of the details, so all you have to do is prepare your vehicle for shipping. To avoid additional charges and delays, those who buy cars at online car auctions such as AutoBidMaster or Salvagebid must pay for full shipping as soon as possible. Shipping a pickup quickly takes about three days, instead of the usual 24 to 48 hours, as it's much harder to find drivers on short notice who operate a transport truck equipped with a winch. Keep in mind that, once they deliver your car, you'll likely need a tow truck to take it to your favorite auto shop to get it fixed, unless you're an auto mechanic.

We have years of experience in the auto transport industry, shipping vehicles for people moving to residence, vacations, corporate removals, and more.
