About Philadelphia Auto Shipping by Rail Services
As we mentioned above, rail shipping is not nearly as popular as it used to be. There are a lot of reasons as to why, but it mostly boils down to over-the-road trucking being a lot easier, cheaper and faster. Trucks can go places trains can’t, after all, and costs have fallen dramatically from the time rail shipping was the way to go. As such, most rail companies now ship cars in bulk, often for manufacturers. The number of routes available for individuals shipping a single car are limited indeed.
Because of this, you’ll definitely want to speak to an agent. Much of the availability of a train to ship your car will depend on where you’re shipping from and to. For instance, up and down the east coast will likely be a lot easier to find than any routes running east-west. If rail shipping isn’t available on the route, don’t be discouraged – truck shipping will be your next best bet. Chances are, on any route that rail shipping is not available, shipping by truck would be even cheaper anyway. So overall you’d end up saving money that way.
