So you are off to Hollywood. However, if you are not self transporting your vehicle to the Los Angeles area, you will have to make other provisions for auto transportation. With a few options available and some basic information, you can readily choose the best way to bring your car to California.
Self Transportation or Driveway Service
Noted self transportation is the first choice in moving your car. This method is somewhat simple and affordable if you have two cars, time and money to make the road trip yourself. If this is the case, you would use the vehicle that weighs more to tow the car that weighs less. Renting a trailer, hitching it to the heavier vehicle and loading the second car onto the moving bed is all it takes. If you are not in the mood to drive then hiring a driveway service would be the next option. A driver would transport your vehicle from your origin to destination, leaving your free to fly to Los Angeles.
Train or Auto Transport
Moving your car to California by train or auto transportation is another alternative. If you choose train transport, you can travel with your vehicle, or if you choose auto transportation you will have your car delivered to your new dwelling. There are two ways in which to have your car transported if you choose to hire a company. You can opt for an open-air or enclosed trailer to transport your vehicle. If you go with open-air your vehicle will be subject to weather conditions, but if you choose enclosed, your car will be completely covered inside.
There are countless companies across North America you can choose from depending on what state you live in. Contact an auto transportation company in your state to compare costs and travel methods so you can make an informed and budget friendly decision. When you call, make sure to ask the company representative vehicle transport questions and discuss problems so you are fully aware of all that auto transport entails. After you and your car safely arrive in California, sit back, relax and enjoy the ride.
