When that form is completed and returned to ACE AUTO TRANSPORT than we will work on getting the vehicle dispatched to an available truck. Once we have located a truck, we or driver will contact you with 24 hr for pick up date and time.
  2. How long will take to pickup and delivery my vehicle?
    Depending of distance and other circumstances. A long distance (1500 miles and more) trip usually takes 7 to 10 days, a short distance (1500 or 750 miles) trip usually takes 3 to 5 days, (less than 750 miles) takes up to 3 days, local distance (up to 100 miles) trip usually takes same or next day delivery.

    All service are door-to-door unless you specifically request otherwise. You are responsible for the accuracy of the pick up and delivery addresses. Door-to-door means the transporter will get as close to your door as he/she can legally and safely. Many cities have restriction on large trucks that prohibit them from driving into some residential areas. Transport trucks are enormous and need room to maneuver and turn around, So if access is impeded by narrow streets. Low hanging trees, speed bumps or tight turns, the transporter may ask that you meet the truck at a large nearby parking area.

    Yes. The carrier insures your vehicle for full market value during transport.
