Shipping Oversize Vehicles

Shipping Oversize Vehicles with MetroGistics
Oversize vehicles can sometimes be difficult to get transported because most vehicle transportation companies don’t have the resources to handle such large vehicles. MetroGistics isn’t like the other companies; we can get your oversized vehicle moved without a problem. There are just a few key pieces of information that we will need provided in order for us to arrange the appropriate carrier that can handle your vehicles dimensions. The list below states some of the basic necessities we will need from you:
• Year, Make, Model of the vehicle you need shipped. This is so we can do some research into the specs of the vehicle such as height, weight, length. The carrier will ask for this information when they call in for this vehicle.
• If there are any special aftermarket parts on the vehicle that increase any of its dimensions. This is very important because carriers have restrictions as to how tall their cargo can get and how heavy the cargo can be so all this information needs to be given when transportation is arranged.
• Choose a pickup and delivery location that makes loading your oversize vehicle easy. Large parking lots usually work best for picking up and delivering because they give the carrier plenty of room to maneuver their tractor-trailer and it also allows room for your vehicle to be loaded and unloaded easily.
• Provide contact information for someone at the origin and destination. This allows for the carrier to contact the person when they are on their way to either pick up or deliver the vehicle. Having someone at these locations to sign for the vehicles is very important.
• Getting your oversized vehicle may take a day or two longer to get transported. Not all carriers can move oversized vehicles so it makes take a few tries before a carrier is found that can haul your car. MetroGistics will get it moved; it may just take a day or two longer than transport of a regular size vehicle.

These things listed above also apply for non-vehicle transports. Things such as golf carts, boats, motor homes, ect call us and we will try to get it moved for you! We will always work our hardest to satisfy the customer’s needs, just provide us with the basics and we will take it from there! MetroGistics will get your regular vehicle, oversize vehicle, or even golf cart moved for you in a timely matter and with 100% satisfaction guaranteed.
