Car Towing Vs Car Shipping

Getting your car transported from A to B is not always easy. Especially when you have so many different methods to choose from. As much as you may want to drive it there yourself, we know that it’s not always possible. When it isn’t possible, you are likely to be left with 2 options: Towing your vehicle and shipping it. But what is the right choice for you? In this article, you will see the benefits of each and what option will be the best for you.

Car Towing

Towing is very self-explanatory but understanding if it is right for you can be difficult. To help you understand if it is right for you, then you need to look at the benefits of towing. One benefit is that towing can offer emergency services. If your car does break down then it can be towed away to safety. This can not be done through car shipping so if you have had a breakdown then car towing is your best bet.

Another benefit to using car towing is its availability. The wait time to get your car towed is significantly less than the time it takes to get your car shipped. This is because it requires fewer resources and you won’t have to go as far.

As well as its availability, the price for car towing is a lot less than shipping. There are many things you can do to reduce the costs of the service even further. Try reducing the length of your journey and driving your vehicle to the car transport company to decrease the overall cost.

Car Shipping

Shipping helps you get from A to B in a different way to towing. If you want to transport your car with little to no effort then car shipping might be the best for you. Most companies will give you the option to pick up your car from your house or to drop it off at a collection point. This means that you will have to do barely any work to get it transported!

If you are looking to transport overseas then shipping is an absolute must. This is because shipping specializes in longer journeys rather than short ones. Extra safety precautions will be implemented to make sure that the car reaches the destination looking how it did before it set off.

Also, the pricing for shipping is still very affordable. The price you pay to ship will correlate with the quality of service that you receive. If you are shipping overseas, then it will likely be more than towing however it is the best option for longer transports.
