Whether you have just bought a new truck or you are moving and need to ship your truck to meet you at your new home, AAS can help relieve stress and shed some light on the truck shipping process. Should you need any assistance, contact us and we’ll get you back on the road to your truck delivery. Consider your time-frames and locations for pick up and delivery. Know the make, model, and year of your truck, and whether it has any modifications. Take some high-quality photos of your truck. Think about what truck shipping service type you would prefer for your shipment, open transport or enclosed.
Most pickup trucks come with oversize or overweight vehicle shipping fees that carriers will assess for larger vehicles – it’s something that no one can control because hauling vehicles larger than a standard car can be costly and expensive in the fuel department, so we charge more for larger vehicles to help offset the additional fuel they spend.
Pickup trucks come in all different shapes and sizes, makes and models - it is a vehicle that is as old as the automobile itself, and transporting one has always been a bit more of a challenge than transporting cars. Pickup trucks are built for work, or at least that's the reason they were invented; they are meant to haul stuff, to tow stuff around, and they need power, pure and simple. Pickup trucks have always been able to do more than the standard automobile because of their additional size and towing/hauling capabilities. But what does that mean for you when it comes to transporting it?
Larger Pick-up Trucks
If your pickup truck is too big to fit (utility bed) on a standard carrier, we will most likely have to use a flatbed carrier or step-deck to haul it for you. Oversize carriers are more expensive and not as readily available as standard auto shippers because they specialize in a select clientele that transports heavier vehicles. As there are usually not many people in need of oversize services, there are not as many carriers and typically they will charge a lot more for a heavier vehicle because of how much fuel they cost the carrier to burn in order to transport it. Unlike open or enclosed transport, oversize transport for pickups and the like is not a service you can just ask for; we're going to find the right truck for your specific vehicle because that's our job and that's how we operate. If your pickup can fit on the back of an open carrier, that's fantastic - we'll find that for you and save you a few bucks. But if it can only fit on a flatbed or step-deck carrier, we'll let you know what the cost and availability will be ahead of time. For more info call (855) 313-3171
