Some of the questions most often asked are What will the total cost be to ship my car?? and How do I find the auto shipping company that best suits my needs? The best and easiest way to obtain these answers is to submit a request for several auto shipping quotes, and then compare prices and car shipping companies to find the one that best suits your needs. In order to best customize your quotes, you should be prepared to provide the following information: Origination/Destination, Approximate departure date, Year/Make/Model of vehicle(s), Type of car transport service desired such as open or enclosed car transport.
By hiring a car shipping company, you can save the wear and tear on your car.
Beware, many online sites that offer multiple quotes will actually sell your information to multiple 3rd party companies.
Sometimes things can become loose when transporting your car so make sure they are secure before hand. The battery in your car should be charged and secure. You vehicle should be washed before you take it to the car transport company. This will allow you to make note of any pre existing scratches and dents.
It is advisable that in addition to receiving a condition report document from your car mover detailing any pre-existing damage to your car, that you take photographs of the car, date the photos, and attach them to the condition report provided by the car mover for your records. You must have a detailed description of the condition of your car prior to Ship. The condition report or other document used by the car mover should include: current mileage, pre-existing damage of any type including: glass, scratches, paint, dents, and so on. This report is important in case any disputes arise.
Work with the shipping company if there are any disputes. If you find that there is damage to your vehicle or it takes them quite a bit longer than they said it would it is best to work with the company directly because they are more often willing to settle things before it goes to court and quite a bit less cooperative after there are lawyers involved.
On average, for a standard shipment it will typically take one to seven business days from the time your booking has been received to locate a carrier and schedule a time for pick-up. Expedited services are available for rush shipments and time sensitive transports.read more
