- Is my vehicle insured during the transportation process?
The Federal Department of Transportation law requires that every carrier must have cargo & liability insurance. Goliath Auto Transport acts solely as a broker to assist you in locating a carrier to move your vehicle. We make sure that every carrier we dispatch to has a copy of accurate and current insurance on file. The carrier is 100% responsible for any damages or claims. The driver will perform a pre-load inspection on your vehicle. If any damages occurred during the transit, the recipient signing for the vehicle at the delivery end must notate the damage on the bill of lading without exception and have the driver sign for the damage. Without a signature, it is impossible to verify with the insurance company when the damage occurred.
- How much does it cost to ship my car?
Prices are determined by mileage, vehicle size, pickup and delivery location.
- How far in advance should I schedule the transport of my vehicle?
We request that you schedule your move as soon as possible to ensure that your car is moved within the time frame which best meets your schedule. If an immediate pick up is necessary, we can arrange for your vehicle to be picked up within 24 hours, otherwise known as expedited shipping.
- How long does it take to have my vehicle picked up?
We normally schedule shipping for your vehicle with a truck within two to three days of the scheduled pick-up date. We can always arrange to accommodate your schedule, but you may incur additional fees.
- How long does it take to ship my vehicle?
This depends entirely upon the distance it’s traveling. Cross country moves typically take 7-10 days. A move from either coast to the center of the country will take 3-5 days. When you receive a quote from us you will receive the transit time for your particular move.
- How can I make payment?
The deposit payment for your auto transport service must be made in advance by using a debit or credit card only after we have found you a driver and we have dispatched the call.
- What payment options does Goliath Auto Transport, LLC accept?
We accept all major credit cards for the deposit only. Depending on the driver the deposit ranges from $150-$200. The remainder is paid to the driver upon delivery in cash or certified funds. The customer also has the option of paying the driver upon pick up the remainder in cash or certified funds if desired.
- Will you ship my car if it’s inoperable?
We will transport your vehicle if it is not running usually at an additional fee upon the driver’s request. Vehicle tires must be inflated and able to roll, and the car must have emergency brakes.
- What if my location is inaccessible to the truck?
Most trucks are 75 feet long and very wide, which makes it impossible to reach most residential areas due to narrow roads, trees, power lines, city ordinances, and other road factors. The driver will attempt to get as close possible to the pickup & delivery locations, or we will arrange a convenient location ahead of time, like a shopping center or major street crossing.
- How much gasoline do I leave in the tank?
We prefer ¼ to ½ tank of gas, but is not required.
- What is door-to-door auto transport?
Door-to-Door service means the driver will get the truck as close to your door as legally possible. Because of safety and local laws many cities have restrictions on large trucks and sometimes prohibit them from going into residential areas. When access is restricted, we may ask you to meet the truck in a nearby parking lot where it is safe to load or unload.
- What if I am unavailable to pick up the car?
Have an alternative party, like a friend or relative, sign on your behalf.
- How far in advance are reservations accepted for vehicle shipping?
We accept reservations up to six months in advance.
- What is the difference between open-sided and enclosed transport?
Open-sided auto transport is the preferred mode of transport for many car shippers. These carriers provide a significant cost savings to both the carrier and customer. Enclosed transport is assigned for high-value shipments to protect the vehicle from dust, debris, and weather. Enclosed transport is a good choice if you desire additional protection for a luxury or antique car.
