When you talking to the companies, make sure to ask them detailed questions about how your car will be transported. Most shippers will move cars between certain city hubs, unloading and loading the vehicles onto other trucks in order to make the routes more efficient, known as terminal to terminal transport. These companies may offer door to door service for additional costs.
If you are concerned about the effect of weather on your vehicle, you might want to consider using an enclosed truck. Although the cost is higher, it might be worth it if you're transporting in the middle of winter or it is a new high-end vehicle. An enclosed truck will also give you peace of mind regarding unintended damage to your vehicle. You should make sure that there is adequate insurance provided by the shipper in any case.
