    What is Tempus Logix?

    Tempus Logix is a car shipping broker that connects customers with a network of more than 25,000 auto shippers across the nation. All its partner carriers are certified and licensed and maintain cargo insurance of up to $1 million. Its services include open and enclosed transport for shipping vehicles locally, nationally and even internationally.

    It works with individuals, companies, corporations, auction houses, car collectors, luxury car owners and dealers to ship cars, motorcycles, heavy equipment, ATVs and boats.

    How does Tempus Logix work?

    To start, customers first input shipment details into an AI cost calculator. Be ready to provide the following information:

    • The origin and destination ZIP codes
    • Whether you want open or enclosed transport
    • The first date the vehicle is available to ship
    • Whether the vehicle runs
    • The vehicle make, model and year
    • Whether the vehicle has been modified
    • Whether you are shipping any extra parts or personal belongings
    • Your contact information

    The system then searches for the best price, showing you regular and cash prices. If you choose to move forward, you will put in more details about the pickup and drop-off locations and finalize the booking.

    Once you book with Tempus Logix, you can start using the shipment status tool online. The tool shows you information such as whether Tempus Logix has booked a carrier and estimated dates of pickup and delivery.

    Tempus Logix shipping options

    Tempus Logix provides a number of different shipping options for customers:

    • Enclosed auto transport: Ship a vehicle in an enclosed trailer for greater peace of mind. For more expensive vehicles, or for shipping in bad weather, this may be a better option.
    • Open auto transport: Shipping a vehicle in an open trailer is a more affordable option than enclosed shipping. It’s adequate for most transports and the best choice for those on a budget.
    • Military auto transport: The company offers up to a 10% military auto transport discount for all active-duty members.
    • Express car shipping: Have your vehicle picked up within 48 hours of the transporter receiving your vehicle transport order. This is the best option if you have an exact date you need the car shipped. Express is usually 30% more than traditional auto shipping.
    • Shipping for online car buyers: After purchasing a car online, you can work with Tempus Logix to get the car shipped to you. During pickup, it also offers a variety of visual checkups, which may serve as a secondary inspection for the new vehicle.
    • Classic car transport: This premium service offers a greater level of confidence to customers with classic cars.
    • International shippers: Tempus Logix’s shippers will get the vehicle to the port or airport needed for international shipment. Most of its drivers have Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC) cards.
    • Heavy equipment transport: Tempus Logix offers shipping for large trucks, heavy machinery and agricultural equipment for construction and industrial companies.
    • Boat transport: Tempus Logix offers city-to-city and state-to-state boat, yacht and sailboat transportation for boats up to 70 feet in length.

    How much does Tempus Logix cost?

    Tempus Logix searches its carrier network for the lowest cost based on the details on your shipment details. After you provide information about your vehicle, the earliest pickup date, the route and whether you want open or enclosed transport, Tempus Logix shows you both a cash price and a regular price instantly through its AI cost calculator.

    According to its terms and conditions, Tempus Logix does charge broker and scheduling fees before pickup. There is a 5% transaction fee for using a credit card or PayPal. If you have to reschedule because the vehicle isn’t ready for pickup, Tempus Logix may charge a $75 fee. After a carrier has reached the pickup location, failure to release the vehicle may result in a “dry-run” fee up to $200.

      The car was supposed to be picked up near Denver, PA, and dropped off in Urbandale, Iowa. The shipment took three days. The driver texted us a couple of hours before arrival, and then he arrived around 15 minutes from when he said he would. We were here for drop-off and then my daughter was on the other end for pickup. The drop-off was a little sketchy. The driver had more like a flat bed and it held three vehicles. It was not a big truck. It was late at night and we held flashlights. The driver did not speak English at all, which was fine. But we kind of guided cars around him because he stopped in the middle of the busy street. But we are in Iowa. It was not really busy. But the experience was fine. We all lived through it. We were grateful to have it and get the car in great shape and very pleased with the service. He did the best he could with what he had.

      Tempus Logix was the fourth company that I had to contact to get my move done. They were on top of it. They gave me exact times, places, how it would work, and how much it would cost. The pickup was originally scheduled to take three or four days. But it only took three. Also, the drop-off was very efficient. The courier driver called when he was between 5 and 10 minutes away. He pulled up and it took less than five minutes, he had the truck off, and was gone.

        Tempus Logix wasn't the cheapest one, but they were the fastest to book with. I was on a time crunch and they met their deadlines at the last minute and got my car shipped on time. They called and texted regularly. They let me know if they had managed to book a driver. I'm happy with them.

        I was leaving town so it was urgent that the vehicle had to be picked up ASAP and with a deadline to be delivered. Not only did they pick it up on time, but they also delivered it earlier than expected. Every time I texted, the driver responded immediately. I've done this a lot in the past, and others would tell me, "Oh, no problem. We'll pick it up within one to two days." Then I would hear a ** story such as "Our car hauler got stuck. The axle broke,” or “He got stuck in traffic," or "It's gonna be another two days," or what not. But not with Tempus Logix. They were easy to work with. Everything was exactly as it was mentioned. I even reached out to them for another delivery. They didn't have someone available right away but that was how good it was that I even reached out to them for another one a few weeks later.

        They went me information on the dates they were gonna target picking my vehicle up and the codes that I needed to share with the seller. I was pleasantly surprised I did not pay the extra for an enclosed trailer. The movers got here a little early but I'd rather have them early than late. The car was undamaged. The quality of service couldn't have been any better.

        The customer service with Tempus Logix was good except I wasn't dealing with the driver, which was odd. The driver was the guy that got the raw end of the deal. He did all the driving. He had the vehicle. He paid for the gas and the tolls. I paid 800, and he only got 400 of it, and it was disturbing that he got such a raw deal out of it. He was trying to get paid from me, and I said, “Well, I already paid.” He called his people and found out that was true. I wish I had his contact information because I would use him again directly. As far as the delivery, my car is 95 years old and I wanted the enclosed trailer. They picked it up on time and delivered it on time, and they did a great job.

        Tempus Logix called me one afternoon after they won the bid to verify the information on the vehicle. My vehicle was in the front yard of my business the next day afternoon. The driver was very professional and had great communication skills. He was very careful with our vehicle. His main concern was to make sure that whenever he unloaded the vehicles, they were unloaded safely.

        Tempus Logix was able to meet my timeline and their pricing was within my budget. They were very responsive. I called up a couple of times to see if everything went smoothly. They even reached out to the driver to find out when their estimated time of delivery was. They delivered within 10 minutes of their estimated time of delivery on the day. Everything was as is. There was no damage and the car was secured in the trailer when I looked.
