Car Shipping to Miami is a popular route nationwide but from Miami, it’s very popular. We are Central Florida’s source for car shipping nationwide.
Both Orlando and Miami are very populated areas and many dealerships in each major city. So there are many residential and dealership transports daily. So, there will be many drivers to choose from, with both open and enclosed trailers available to choose from. Simply put car shipping to Miami is pretty simple if done with the right Auto Transport Company.
When you are shipping your vehicle the first thing you are looking for is transporter-to-customer communication. We don’t mean just the initial booking process. Some of these companies with sing you a song at first and then when it comes down to actually shipping the vehicle they are nowhere to be found.
When you are car shipping to Miami, it’s important to know it’s a very short trip. So sometimes the driver will be looking to deliver it the same day. This is important because you want someone on each end that can give the vehicle to the driver and when he’s ready to deliver, you’ll need someone to accept it. Mainly because the inspection report needs to be signed and the keys need to be accepted.
Although some deliveries are on the same day, it’s usually delivered the following day. Just because they typically have 2-4 other vehicles they are picking up and delivering. So if you have ever driven in Orlando or Miami traffic you know how time-consuming that can be at times.
During the booking process, you’ll know more or less a firm time frame to expect your vehicle to be loaded and unloaded.
Door to Door
What does door-to-door mean? Simply put it’s the addresses you provide for pickup and delivery. This is how we do all of our car shipments.
However, most transport trucks and trailers won’t pull up to your door. These trucks are usually 80 feet long and depending on the neighborhood the likelihood of them pulling up to your door is pretty low. It’s just considered door-to-door because you won’t have to travel far to meet the driver.
Usually, they’ll park outside the neighborhood address that you provided on both pickup and delivery. Other times it’s best to meet them at your local shopping center that has a large parking area and possibly lighting so a pickup or delivery when it’s dark outside.
Open or Enclosed Trailer?
Car shipping to Miami on an open trailer is most common and for smaller-sized vehicles, the price ranges from 250$ to 300$. With a route under 700 miles, it’s typical for a light-duty 3500 series type pickup truck with a 3-4 car wedge trailer. Similar to the photo listed.
Insurance coverage is about the same with open trailers and enclosed trailers. Both are safe to ship on and on an open trailer, it’s safer than driving down the highway yourself. Mainly because the vehicles on the trailer are lifted off the ground quite a bit.
Car shipping to Miami on an enclosed trailer is common for exotic cars or lowered cars that will have trouble loading on an open trailer. This is usually the main reason to ship enclosed. The ramps are usually longer making the angle for loading and unloading better for lowered vehicles.
The typical enclosed trailer used for car shipping to Miami is a 42-foot enclosed cargo trailer that has been modified to handle vehicles safely. They usually have a track for the wheels to be tied down and we never strap to the fame.
