4 Reasons to Use a Terminal When You Ship Your Car
At PreOwned Auto Logistics, we answer customer questions and concerns every day. One of the most common questions we hear has to do with car shipping terminals. Let us explain:
What are terminals?
Terminals are pick-up or drop-off locations that we utilize to make the transport process easier and more convenient for our customers. For people that live around the Boston area, we offer a safe and convenient drop off spot in Danvers, right off Route 114. For seasonal customers, we have nine different terminals throughout the east and west coast of Florida.
Why do we use them?
You are welcome, of course, to have your vehicle picked up at your home. That’s a service PreOwned provides. However, we recommend that you drop your car off at a terminal if you can. We make this recommendation for several reasons.
(1) Terminals save you TIME!
Instead of having to wait for a window of time to have your car picked up, you can drop your vehicle off in Danvers whenever it’s most convenient. We let you know the week before when a truck will be available to pick up your car, and with that information you can decide when you would like to bring your car in.
(2) Terminals save you MONEY!
Having a car delivered or picked up at your house costs more money than a terminal pick up. By deciding to pick up or drop off your car at a terminal, you could save $75 (or more!)
(3) Terminals shorten the transport!
When you decide to use our terminals, you shorten the amount of time you are without your car. For pick ups at the house, we like to have the car there at the terminal, ready for pick up, the day before the truck comes. For drop offs at your house, a car which arrives at the terminal in the afternoon may not be delivered until the following day. If you use a terminal, the wait time is shorter and you have your car back sooner.
(4) Terminals allow you to MEET the person you are doing business with!
Instead of giving your car to a company or person you do not know, drop your car off to Danvers and meet the sales representative who helps you with your move! We feel that there is comfort in knowing the person on the other end of the phone. It just goes with our customer service philosophy.
