Transporting a transporter is not only a tautology but also a tough job that not transportation carriers are equipped to handle. This is where the USTrans.com services come in to weed out the companies who are incapable, from those who are more than prepared to transfer your pickup truck from one location to another.
We provide the security that you need when sending a car out or waiting to receive a newly purchased one from across the country. This is especially relevant, when you take into consideration how much time, effort, money and wear on the vehicle you save.
USTrans works with a while network of professional transport carriers who either specialize, or have years of experience in the transportation of heavy, big vehicles like pickup trucks. This weeds out those who don’t have the experience and cannot provide a guarantee for the safekeeping of your property.
The transportation or large loads is generally considered more expensive, due to their size and weight – factors which reduce the work potential of a trailer – where it would have been able to transport 8 vehicles, with a large pickup truck it will only transport 7 vehicles for the same distance. Due to this, transporting a pickup truck, like a Ford F150, costs more than the transportation of a Toyota Corolla.
Once the vehicle is on the trailer, it’s secured to the chassis with belt straps. This process will vary based on the size of the vehicle as well as the type of trailer you have chosen – open or enclosed.
A closed trailer is a much more suitable choice if you are looking to protect your vehicle from all meteorological conditions, which is suitable in the winter and summer. The price of an enclosed trailer is higher than that of an open trailer, so if you are not concerned about the condition of the vehicle, then we suggest you opt out for an open trailer.
The reason we pay attention to the experience of carrier, is because some carriers provide covers for pickup trucks who’ve been placed on open beds. These protectors provide a decent protection against rocks hitting the body of the vehicle, sunlight, dust and inclement weather.
The carriers we work with are able to transport a large variation of pickup trucks, from large sized, modified ones, to smaller scale, equipment-based models.
You should make sure that the vehicle has enough gas to get onto the trailer, that its tires have enough air and that the battery works. It’s also helpful if you know that it can steer, accelerate and break – the easier it is to get the pickup truck onto the trailer, the faster it will be delivered.
This is not always the case, however, most carriers will charge you more solely based on the fact that they can cannot transfer as many vehicles when they transport large autos. This means that for the same distance traveled, they will not have made the same amount of money, as they would have transporting a smaller car.
There are several ways in which you could save money, however, they could be more inconvenient to you. One of the ways to save money is by having the truck picked up from a more central location. If your current location is more than 100 miles away from any major highway, the transportation costs will be higher, getting the vehicle closer to a major highway would reduce the costs drastically.
While some companies do allow that, most transport carriers do not have a dedicated customer service desk, which makes communication more difficult. This is where our services come in – we are fluent in both the customer’s and technical languages, conveying and translating between the two parties so everything goes as smooth as possible.
I chose USTrans as my auto transport platform because they were the only ones who were honest with me. They didn’t set unrealistic expectations just to get my money, they were straightforward from day 1 and were very helpful which I really appreciate – here’s to a 5 star Google Review!!
I’ve had bad experience with auto transport companies before which made me reluctant trying and trusting anyone else. Long story short – USTrans talk the talk and walk the walk which is super rare nowadays. I’m extremely happy with the service, they chose a very nice carrier who kept in touch with me.
I live in LA, but had a show in Dallas and I didn’t want to rent a car so I had USTrans move my vehicle ahead of time so I could have I there. I’m generally satisfied with them, however, one thing that caught me of guard that the carrier changed the price at the last second, I don’t know who’s fault it is – we were able to clear everything up.
When I received the orders to move again, I knew that this time I had to have my car with me, can’t be without a vehicle. So I found USTrans, they were very helpful in finding a suitable carrier, my moving date was just a week away and I had to use expedited shipping – good thing the military covers the expense.
I’m kind of relieved that it’s over. It’s my first time using an auto transport service across the country and I was scared that the car would get stolen and I’d never see it. Honestly it was a sigh of relief when I saw the semi pull up with my civic – it was a sight for sore eyes – glad I chose USTrans because they were honest and upfront with them from the get go – great service.
Moving a car from Hawaii to mainland US would be a nightmare without the services of USTrans. I don’t really know the details, but by the end of it I felt like I swam the distance myself – good thing the carrier was upfront and they let me know whenever they were delays – you can’t control everything even if you wanted to.
The overall experience of moving a car is super stressful, but USTrans were there to assist. The only issue I had was that they were a little late to reply to some of my messages, however, aside from that they were fantastic – I could not be happier.
USTrans helped me get back on my feet. After I lost my business, life’s been kinda hard, but speaking with the customer support people kinda brought back some enthusiasm back to me, that’s how you do business. These guys helped me move my van to Minnesota so I can start over. Thank you!
So I came back from Europe, but didn’t have the time go get my car back, so I used USTrans to assist and they were fantastic. I don’t really know how they select the carriers, but whoever made their selection process should get a medal – the carrier was fantastic, super organized and they were really honest with the delays – great job, USTrans!
