Dealerships and auctions don’t always have huge truckloads of vehicles to transport at one time. They may also be limited to buying small volumes to keep costs down or meet changing consumer needs. Other factors, like the limited supply of new and used vehicles and additional online competitors entering the market, have created a greater need for single and low-volume vehicle moves.
Not every carrier or logistics company has the capacity and flexibility to handle single-car moves. Read on for insights into this shift and learn why a third-party logistics company, with a foundation in single-car moves, benefits your business.
Challenges in transporting a single vehicle
According to Forbes Advisor, the average commercial transport hauls five to nine vehicles at a time. When shipping just one or two vehicles, time is spent waiting for the transport company to fill a multi-level, multi-vehicle truck or trailer with enough units, causing shipping delays and unhappy customers. If you choose to skip the wait, you may end up paying more.
Your business goal is to spend more time selling vehicles rather than figuring out the best strategy for transporting them. Unfortunately, many car shippers don’t have the equipment or expertise to accommodate smaller volumes at an affordable rate.
How single car moves help your business
When shipping one or two cars for an auction or to or from a dealership, you need a fast and easy solution. Working with a company that can support smaller volume hauls allows you to be agile and cost effective, responding better to transport changes. Single car moves increase your speed to consumers by getting cars on your lots faster to sell.
Collectively, all these benefits will also improve your operational efficiency and overall customer satisfaction.
