Call To Meet Transport Options

What is Call-to-Meet Transport?

Call-to-meet transport is a unique service where the driver contacts the client in advance to arrange a specific meeting point for the pick-up or drop-off of the vehicle. This method is particularly beneficial in country areas, towns on main highways, or rural regions.

Some of our quotes have prices stating, "The driver will call you in advance and arrange a meeting place."

To explain this a little better, we always try to offer the lowest price immediately on any quote we send out, and sometimes this means that whilst we can offer a service that offers a collection or a delivery to/from a particular address, it often a very much cheaper option for a driver that is coming through the town to call you and arrange to meet you at a pre-arranged point.

This typically only occurs in country areas or towns on a main highway and sometimes in more rural areas.

For example:

Carrier A will charge $800 to collect from your address and take it to your destination.

Carrier B, on the other hand, will charge $650 but insists on making the pick-up at a pre-arranged point.

On most quotes, we can always provide a door collection for those customers who need it, so reply to your quote, and we can adjust it for you.


Why Choose Call-to-Meet?


One of the primary reasons many opt for this service is the potential cost savings. For instance, while Carrier A might charge a higher fee for door-to-door service, Carrier B could offer a significantly reduced rate if the client agrees to meet at a pre-determined location.


This method provides flexibility for both the driver and the client. The driver can maintain their route efficiency, and the client can choose a convenient location for the handover.


Without navigating through city streets or unfamiliar areas, drivers can often ensure faster delivery times, benefiting those on tight schedules.

How Does It Work?

  1. Booking: When requesting a quote, the Call-to-Meet option will often be presented as an alternative to traditional door-to-door services.
  2. Coordination: Once booked, the driver will contact the client to discuss and finalize a suitable meeting point. This could be a public parking lot, a service station, or a safe and accessible location.
  3. Pick-Up/Drop-Off: The client meets the driver to hand over or receive their vehicle at the agreed time and place. The process is quick, efficient, and hassle-free.

Key Considerations

  • Safety: Always choose a well-lit, public location for the handover.
  • Documentation: Ensure all necessary paperwork, such as vehicle inspection reports, is completed during the handover.
  • Communication: Maintain open communication with the driver. Ensure you have their contact details and provide them with yours.
