As a new customer, we know that you might be unsure of how the process of shipping a car works. Never fear, we are here to answer any questions you might have. One of the biggest questions we get from new customers is: When will my car be delivered?

There are many factors that can impact the length of time it takes for a vehicle to be delivered. Let’s go over the top three factors that determine how long it will take for your vehicle to get to where you need.

1. Distance

The most obvious factor that can influence the time it takes for your vehicle to get delivered is the distance from pickup to drop-off. Our trusted truck drivers are fast, but they don’t have Flash-level superpowers. Need your vehicle shipped a few hundred miles? We’ll get it to you in just a few short days. However, if you are getting a vehicle delivered across the country, you can expect that it can take a little longer.

2. Weather

Weather conditions based on the time of year will impact the amount of time your delivery takes. Truck drivers can face wet and rainy roads during summer downpours and must navigate icy streets during the winter. An estimated 24% of weather-related car accidents happen on slushy and icy roads, so your vehicle transporter will drive extra carefully to ensure safe delivery.

3. Road Conditions

Do you feel like your town always has road construction or traffic jams at random times of the day? Though they might wish that they could, truck drivers can’t magically avoid these bad road conditions. You can expect a bit of a delay in delivery if there are unfavorable road conditions along the way.

The good news? RunBuggyOne lets you track your vehicle every step of the way! Once your car has been connected to a hauler, you’ll be able to see an estimated pickup date and time. After your vehicle has been safely loaded up, you’ll get access to the estimated delivery date. We provide GPS tracking, so you can see exactly where your vehicle is located.
