You need to research so many new things, such as how to order vehicle delivery, how fees are calculated, what the estimated delivery time is, and much more.
As a salvage car owner, you will definitely need some help, and here we are — sharing tips for vehicle shipping across the USA via the ABM auto auction marketplace.
Salvage for the mainland
All vehicles won through ABM auction can be delivered anywhere across the USA with the help of EasyHaul.com’s shipping service. This is a simple solution we utilize to make USA ground shipping easy and fast.
Don’t forget about the pick-up time, which takes about 3-5 days. This is important because you’ll have to pay storage fees if you don’t order shipping ASAP after the purchase is finalized. The vehicle and shipping order should be paid in full, and only after that, EasyHaul will locate a driver for you.
As soon as the delivery starts, you can track the shipping status of your order online. EasyHaul also provides real-time shipping updates via text message. Options like these make the delivery process clear and give you an opportunity to plan for the vehicle’s delivery.
Currently, delivery times vary due to many factors as a result of the global pandemic.
