No matter the reason for moving, our network of professional and experienced operators will ensure your cars are delivered to your destination safely at an affordable price.
What does Car backloading mean?
Car backloading takes the stress and hassle out of transporting your car interstate or around the corner. Opting for a privately hired truck means you will need to cover for the entire rental cost, regardless of how much space your vehicle takes up on the load. Car companies with car carries will also charge higher than backload.
This approach can be expensive and annoying, especially for those that own smaller cars. Backloading reduces this unnecessary cost, as you will only pay for your share of the delivery. If your vehicle fills 25% of the truck’s load capacity, then you only pay 25% of the cost incurred in getting to the final destination.
At Truckit.net, we work with a range of different trucks and providers across the country. We aim to capitalise on their return trips or any vacant space on their already chartered journeys. The beauty of our expansive network means we can find an option for practically any delivery requirement, while also keeping the car transport costs down for individual customers. Customers can save up to 75% on costs by avoiding hire fees. We also maximise the return leg of a truck trip, which ensures the original customers are only liable for their portion of the journey.
Why should I backload my car?
Transporting your car via a backload interstate or on a long-haul journey allows you to save time, money and unnecessary stress. No matter the size of your car, the Truckit.net platform can find a truck willing to transport it to your final destination. The cost-savings of only paying for the one-way trip of the truck means you’ll receive a lower rate than is possible from a privately chartered journey.
For many people, a car is one of their most valuable and important possessions. Driving the vehicle for interstate or long-distance moves will add plenty of kilometres to the car’s odometer. This added mileage will not only significantly hinder the value of the car but will also incur excessive wear and tear. Transporting your vehicle on a backload will safely deliver your vehicle to its final destination, without unnecessary damage or devaluation.
In our increasingly environmental-conscious climate, many people are reluctant to drive their cars for long-distances or hire a truck just for the move. However, the beauty of backloading is that you can make multiple deliveries on one trip, and the return leg is also capitalised on for additional deliveries. By combining numerous deliveries, you will exponentially decrease your impact on the environment, while still getting your car to where it needs to be.
Finally, life is busy! Do you really have time to be driving your car across the country? By backloading your vehicle on a truck, you won’t even need to lift a finger, and the job will be done! It’s the simplest solution on the market.
