Car Shipping by Train: Beating the Logistics of Vehicle Drop Off and Pick Up
Auto transport by rail has long been a favorite method of shipping vehicles for people changing careers or otherwise moving to a different part of the country. Even in this day of truck-based vehicle transportation, moving vehicles by rail has many advantages.
Rail-based car transport typically offers greater protection by way of enclosed railcars. Charges for train transport tend to be slightly less expensive, because railroads can move goods more efficiently than trucks. Finally, the railcars allow your vehicle to travel flat (rather than stacked at angles on a multiple car carrier), offering greater protection to your car because it does not need to be secured so tightly with chains.
One issue that must be overcome: how do you get your car to and from the rail terminal? As the railroad network in America shrinks, fewer terminals are available in convenient places where people live. But auto relocation companies are well aware of this, and they have largely figured out how to make this part of the relocation process easy and simple for the consumer. Let us explore the possibilities.

Explore the possibility with your auto transporter of adding door-to-door (rather than terminal-to-terminal) service. With this option you avoid dealing with rail terminals in unfamiliar parts of town, and it is never necessary to arrange separate transportation to these areas. Door-to-door service is clearly the easiest and most seamless way of relocating your vehicle.
