  3. 3. What Makes Rail Transport Economical?<br />Online auctions<br />Car haulers that offer long-distance rail service as well as short-distance truck transport can affordably deliver the cars and trucks they buy online, wherever they are located. <br />Lowering Costs <br />Railroads move a ton of freight nearly 410 miles for each gallon of diesel fuel <br />Shipping a car or truck by train for moves over 500 miles can often lower auto transport costs by up to 30 percent. <br />
  4. 4. What Makes Rail Transport Economical? Cont.<br />A new generation of car haulers makes it easy to:<br />Place orders online<br />get instant price quotes<br /> estimated transit time for door-to-door pickup and delivery anywhere in the country. <br />Truck transport <br />recommended within a 250-mile radius of the pickup point.<br /> For an affordable long distance trip:<br />Rail or a combination of truck and rail transport is recommended<br />
  5. 5. Rail Transport is Dependable <br />Over the last five years, almost 75 million import and domestic cars and trucks were sold in the United States.<br /> Over 70 percent were moved across the country by rail transport. <br />Almost 53 million factory-new vehicles shipped and more than 99% arrive damage-free. <br />It only makes sense for used car dealers to also consider rail transport. <br />
  6. 6. Rail Transport is Dependable Cont.<br />Used cars are protected the same way new cars are during transportation<br />Specially-designed railcars can carry up to 20 vehicles, although the average is around 12 units. <br />Vehicles purchased at auction are transported to the nearest rail terminal by truck and then specially trained terminal loaders load the car into the rail car<br />They’re secured inside the railcar with straps and tire chocks to help prevent damage during transit. <br />Once the train arrives at a rail terminal near the final destination, vehicles are carefully unloaded, then placed on a transporter truck and delivered to their final destination.<br />
  7. 7. Rail Transport is Hassel-Free<br />Modern car haulers make rail transport of cars and trucks purchased at auction hassle-free.<br /> They coordinate the entire move from local pick-up to final delivery.<br /> A knowledgeable and experienced operations team monitors every step of the process to ensure reliable, quality delivery. <br />Online shipment status and ETA are also available 24/7 at the car hauler’s web site. <br />Used car dealers can spend more time focusing on customer needs rather than waiting and worrying if the fresh inventory they need to fill their lots will arrive on time. <br />
  8. 8. Rail Transport is Hassel-Free Cont.<br />If you are a used car dealer shopping auto auctions outside your usual trading area:<br /> consider using a car hauler that offers affordable rail service as well as truck options. <br />A car hauler with a solid reputation, can make rail transport: <br />- surprisingly economical<br />-dependable <br />-and hassle-free<br />
