Evaluate Car Shipping Companies

Deciding to hand over a vehicle to a car moving company is one that requires careful consideration. Owners have a responsibility to research information about the companies that perform the service and to evaluate them. A vehicle has a financial value and often an emotional one as well, and an owner is entitled to protect both. Companies that offer satisfactory assurances of safe transport are the ones that owners typically choose.

An accurate evaluation of bids presented by competing car shipping carriers is possible only when the owner has a list of requests. Comparing bids that meet all items on the list provides a reasonable way to arrive at a decision. To make the best use of a list, an owner needs to prepare a separate page that can contain the answers provided by each company. If any item on the list is modified in any way, it is no longer valid for comparison purposes. One owner may have specific requirements that are not important to another, but the important thing is for the selection criteria to remain constant.

The price is what most shoppers want to know, but individual preferences and requirements have a direct effect on the price. Major considerations in obtaining car shipping quotes include these:

• Insurance provided by car shipping companies
• Cost of door-to-door service
• Pickup and delivery dates
• Price differences for open and enclosed transport options

Any bid that seems significantly different is one that may need further investigation. Hidden charges can result in unpleasant surprises when the vehicle is delivered. Some owners find positive or negative reviews of companies on the social media. Customers who had bad experiences are often verbal about sharing them.

Reliable carriers are licensed and insured, and an owner must eliminate from consideration those that do not conform to the requirements. The car transport business is a competitive one that includes knowledgeable and experienced personnel as well as fly-by-night amateurs.

No company can afford to provide the same price for a city-to-city delivery and a door-to-door delivery. Customized conveniences increase the price of almost any service, and the value of the convenience is a matter of personal judgment by the customer. Times for picking up a vehicle are usually easy to schedule, but precise delivery dates are difficult for many carriers to provide due to the many variables involved.

An open transport vehicle is acceptable to the vast majority of owners, but a specially prized vehicle may need to travel in an enclosed carrier. Car shipping quotes reflect higher prices for special handling of vehicles, including the use of enclosed carrier.

I was looking to ship my car from San Diego, CA to Pennsylvania. After waiting nearly a week for a different company to find me a carrier I decided to look elsewhere. I was in a bit of a time crunch now, it was Friday and I was looking to have my car shipped by Sunday. I gave Joe a call when speaking with him he said it would take him a day or two max to find a carrier. Well I kid you not 15 minutes after hanging up with him he calls back to say he has found 2 carriers! It is now Sunday, my car was picked up as promised and estimated delivery is sooner than I expected. The price was just a bit higher than the original company but he actually got the job done. -
