How Many Auto Transport Trucks Will My Vehicle Be On?

Usually, when you ship your vehicle via an auto transport company, the truck carrier that picks up your vehicle will bet he same one on which it will arrive. There are, however, exceptions to this rule.

In some cases, the route to the destination will require your vehicle be taken off one auto transport carrier and placed on a different one in order to finish the journey. In these cases, every precaution is taken to ensure that your vehicle is not damaged in any way, and that it is placed securely upon the second carrier truck.

If you are concerned, be sure to ask the auto transport companies you are considering if they have a direct route available or if they will need to place your vehicle on a second truck at some point.

Another possible exception would be in the case of international shipping. In such cases, however, your vehicle may be crated first, so it will be the crate that is being moved, not your exposed vehicle. Your vehicle will be secured inside the crate as it is moved from truck to ship to truck again, or whatever combination of transportation is used.

If your vehicle does need to be placed on a different truck, ask if there will be any additional charges or fees assessed. Ask for everything in writing, and if you are concerned, ask about tracking services for your vehicle. Many auto transport services do offer tracking features so that you may track the truck carrier your vehicle is on along the journey to its destination. Make sure to ask if such a feature is free or if a charge is assessed for access to it. You can always ask for tracking fees to be waived if your vehicle must be placed on a second carrier. Your auto transport company may or may not oblige you.
