The Limitations of Car Train Travel

What to Know Before You Go: Traveling with your vehicle by train across states can seem like an appealing option at first glance. However, several challenges come with it, such as the inconvenience of their fixed schedules, geographies that don't align with your itinerary, the possibility of delays, and a greater than 17-hour train ride to and from cities that may not be convenient for you. These constraints can significantly impact your travel plans, especially if your journey requires flexibility. Unlike car trains, a dedicated driving service can offer you a level of convenience, speed, and attentiveness that trains simply cannot match. Our approach prioritizes your schedule and preferences, ensuring a seamless, door-to-door experience for your vehicle, ensuring it arrives at its destination, on your schedule.

Why Choose Our Driving Service Over the Car Train

Personalized Travel Experience

Our driving service was created to meet the specific needs of each client, promising a service that is as individual as you are. Every vehicle we transport receives a custom travel plan designed around your specific requirements and timelines. Unlike the one-size-fits-all approach of car trains, our service considers the best routes, timing, and care for your vehicle, ensuring a personalized journey from pickup to delivery. This level of customization guarantees that your car's transport aligns perfectly with your needs and preferences.

Door-to-Door Convenience

The convenience of door-to-door service cannot be overstated. Unlike car trains, which require you to get to and from the station while adhering to their timetable, our service offers the luxury of picking up and dropping off your vehicle directly at locations of your choosing. This not only saves you valuable time but also removes the hassle of coordinating travel to fit train schedules, making your overall travel experience more enjoyable and less stressful.

Ensured Safety and Privacy

The safety and privacy of your vehicle are paramount. Our service ensures that your car is not only transported safely but also kept private and secure throughout its journey. You can have peace of mind knowing that your vehicle is in good hands, and protected from the exposure and risks associated with other forms of transport.

Flexibility and Routing

Flexibility is at the core of our service. Without the constraints of train schedules or routes, we offer the ability to adjust pick-up and delivery times to suit your schedule, as well as select the most efficient route for your vehicle's journey. This adaptability ensures that your car's relocation is convenient for you, not just for us.

Door to Door Car Delivery. The Best Alternative to the Car Train

Choosing our driving service brings a level of convenience that goes beyond the basic transportation of your vehicle. It offers a personalized experience tailored to meet your specific requirements, from the selection of the route to scheduling pickup and delivery at locations that work best for you. This adaptability ensures that your vehicle's journey to Florida aligns perfectly with your travel plans, providing a seamless transition without the added stress of coordinating train schedules and locations.

The personal care and attention to detail our service provides cannot be overstated. Your vehicle is not just another item being shipped; it's handled with the care and respect it deserves, ensuring it arrives in the same condition it was picked up. This peace of mind is invaluable, especially for those with high-value or sentimental vehicles.

In contrast, while a car train might offer a slightly different cost solution, it lacks the flexibility and personalization that our service excels in. The process is more rigid, with set schedules and drop-off/pick-up points that may not align with your needs. This could lead to additional logistics to consider, possibly diminishing the initial savings.

When deciding between a driving service and a car train for your journey to Florida, it's essential to weigh the advantages of both. For those who value a stress-free, flexible, and personalized service, our driving service stands out as the superior choice, ensuring your vehicle's safe and efficient arrival in Florida.

Comparing Costs: Driving Service vs. Car Train

Driving Service

Costs: The price for a driving service includes not only the transportation of your vehicle but also encompasses a level of convenience and customization that car trains simply cannot offer. It might appear higher at first glance; however, it covers personalized service and door-to-door delivery, and the option to customize stops and routes if needed. Moreover, the cost includes insurance and the assurance that your car is in the hands of a professional driver. Lastly, our driving service allows you the ability to fly to your destination, cutting your own travel time down by days, which is invaluable. 

Value: Beyond the time and monetary cost, another value lies in the hassle-free experience, convenience, and the ability to tailor the service to your needs. For instance, you can specify particular routes or requirements for your vehicle, such as home-to-airport service.

Car Train

Costs: Car train services generally offer a flat rate for transporting vehicles, which can be less expensive upfront compared to personalized driving services. This rate usually includes basic insurance and transportation from one train terminal to another, without the possibility of customization. Many individuals who choose this option will often need to pay for a hotel room as well near one of the terminals, along with fuel and tolls to and from their destinations before and after the train ride is completed. Not to mention food and additional accommodations on the train. 

Value: The car train's value proposition lies in its simplicity and potentially lower cost. It’s a straightforward method to transport your vehicle over long distances without putting miles on it. However, this option lacks the flexibility of door-to-door delivery, requiring you to drop off and pick up your vehicle at specific locations. There’s also less flexibility in scheduling, as you must adhere to the train’s timetable which is a minimum 17 hour journey.


Are there any restrictions on the locations your driving service covers?

No restrictions at all; our service spans the entire United States, offering door-to-door delivery.

Will you pick up my vehicle directly from my home?

Yes, absolutely. We accommodate your preferences for both pickup and delivery locations.

How long does your driving service take to complete??

Typically, the service is finalized within 24 hours, although this may vary based on the starting point. Longer distances, such as those from Arizona or California, might extend the timeframe.
