How to Choose The Right Auto Transport Company

So how do you find the best auto transport company? Knowing what your shipping and transport needs are the best way to start. If you can, have a list, and ask questions when you call for a quote.

Questions to Ask Your Broker:

  • – How long will it take to ship my car?
  • – Is open or enclosed trailer transport better for my car?
  • – Are you a licensed, bonded, and insured company?
  • – What kind of pickup and drop off options do you offer?
  • – Are you able to help me stay within my budget for auto transport?

A quality transport company will be able to answer these questions and any others you may have.

Open or Enclosed
Auto Transport

There are two main auto transportation options: open or enclosed trailers. Since most cars are safe to travel on an open trailer, this is often the most common choice. All quality auto transport companies should offer affordable prices for this option. This option is often less expensive because they are lighter than enclosed trailers. If you’re shipping a standard vehicle, most likely, an open trailer transport will work for you.

Enclosed trailer transport can be more expensive, but sometimes necessary. Enclosed trailers keep your vehicle safe from harsh weather conditions and roadway debris. If you have an expensive luxury car, an enclosed trailer might be the better option.

Other vehicle examples that may need enclosed trailers include:

  •    – Sports cars
  •    – Race cars
  •    – Vintage Cars
  •    – Classic Cars

The right auto transport company will have the knowledge to help determine which is best for you. For instance, at AutoTransport.com, our logistics team is expertly trained. Based on individual needs, we pair you with the best driver and trailer. We work within budget and time constraints for a quality auto transport experience.

Consider Your Budget

Knowing your budget will help you find an auto transport company. Do a bit of research and determine the greatest amount you’re willing to spend for shipping. Call around and determine who has the best prices for your car shipping needs. At AutoTransport.com a logistic agent will try to find you the absolute best price to fit into your budget. 

Be cautious of auto transport companies who offer you extremely low prices. Things like weight, distance, and gas factor into price. If a few companies offer similar prices, and one is offering well below that, make sure to do your research. You want the best prices, but with a company who offers the best services as well.

Insurance
Coverage

You want to make sure your vehicle transport is as safe as possible. Sometimes though, unforeseen things happen, and you want coverage. If you choose an uninsured company, you might have to pay damages yourself. That’s probably not something you want. Choose an auto transport company that has the proper licensing, insurance, and bonding. That way, you’re secure in your vehicle shipping experience, no matter what happens.

Reviews

Reviews are one of the most helpful things when it comes to choosing an auto transport company. Check out the reviews, not only on the companies website, but on their social media as well. This will give you insight on how the company conducts business day to day. 

There are also third-party review sites, such as Yelp, the BBB, and  Transport Reviews. These allow you to better understand the company/client interaction. The reviews may give you a better idea of what to expect, should any challenges arise.

Cancellation
Policy

Your plans might not be set in stone or they may change. Make sure you know the auto transport company’s cancellation policy ahead of time. You want to avoid any added fees or complications. Ask if the auto transport company has any penalties or restrictions. If you’re offered a specialized offer, make sure you receive it in writing to avoid any disputes.
