ShipLux Auto Shipping FAQ
What is included in the cost of service? (Why is it so expensive?)
ShipLux is committed to ensuring that your vehicle transport is hassle-free. Our honest and transparent pricing includes the cost of transportation from door to door, including any import or export taxes and fees. Full-coverage insurance is always included, as is a dedicated account representative. Our proprietary communication system guarantees you are in the loop around the clock. The quoted price of your vehicle transport might appear higher than prices advertised by some other companies because we never hide additional fees behind an incomplete quote.
How long will it take for my car to be picked up?
You can generally expect your vehicle to be picked up within 12-72 hours of order placement. If you have an expedited need, let us know. We are more than happy to assist!
How long will it take for my car to be delivered?
The Department of Transportation regulates overland shipping. Commercial drivers cover an average of 500 miles per day. A cross-country transport will take approximately 7-10 days for open container shipping. Enclosed shipping will generally be quicker, taking approximately 5-7 days, since the delivery route includes fewer cars.
How does payment work?
ShipLux requires a deposit at booking, to be charged when the Network Carrier pickup is scheduled. If any balance remains at the time of delivery, it should be paid in full by certified check, cashier’s check, or cash. Other methods of payment may be arranged prior to vehicle delivery.
What is “Payment On Delivery”?
“Payment on Delivery,” “Cash on Delivery,” or “Collect on Delivery” (POD/COD) refers to a payment arrangement where a good or service is ordered ahead of time, with payment rendered only at the time of product or service receipt. After payment of a deposit, ShipLux may allow payment on delivery, whereby the customer pays the remaining balance upon delivery of the vehicle after the transport is received.
What is enclosed vehicle transport?
Enclosed vehicle transport protects your vehicle within a hard-side, fully-enclosed trailer. Together with our White Glove Service, this ensures your vehicle stays showroom-ready, fully protected from the weather, road debris, and would-be thieves.
How much is enclosed shipping for a car?
Every vehicle transport is unique. Shipping costs depend on the vehicle specifications, required schedule, geographic distance, and other details. The average price of enclosed shipping for a car is approximately $1 per mile or $1500 cross-country. Contact the experts at ShipLux for your personalized quote today!
