Ask for estimated pick-up and delivery times from your vehicle transport company or auto driveaway company. You should be able to get a 3-day window for pick-up – during the busy summer or snow bird season the window may be larger, but the vehicle transport company or auto driveaway company should warn you of possible delays ahead of time. Take in consideration that if you book with an auto transport company with more time in advance you will be able to get a closer date for pick-up to the date you need it done.
BE SKEPTICAL OF EXACT PICK-UP AND DELIVERY DATES PROMISED BY VEHICLE TRANSPORT AND AUTO DRIVEAWAY COMPANIES – IF YOU ARE PROMISED EXACT DATES, GET IT IN WRITING AND STATE THE REMEDY IF SERVICE IS NOT PERFORMED ON PROMISED DATES, ($50 discount, no fee to cancel, reimbursement for rental vehicle, etc.) PICK-UP DATES AND DELIVERY DATES ARE USUALLY ESTIMATED NOT PROMISED.
Once pick-up is made, your vehicle transport company or auto driveaway company should provide you with a fairly precise delivery date. If you need an exact date for pick-up, most vehicle transport and auto driveaway services can pick-up your vehicle and hold it at a terminal for an additional charge.
When a transport company uses the term TRANSIT TIME it means that the time starts to count once the vehicle has been picked up. The time that the vehicle stays on the compound doesn't count so you need to make sure what times frames they have to transport your car.
