Do Your Homework.
Search Google for “Auto Transport“, “Auto Shipping“, and “Auto Transporter“, and visit the various auto transport company web sites.

Get Quotes From Different Companies

Get Quotes from individual companies, or sites that offer  quotes from several competitors to compare rates. You can check the company’s track record on sites like Transport Reviews. From there give the Auto Transport Company a call and ask questions if necessary.

Read Reviews.
There are several Auto Transport Company review sites. For Example on Transport Reviews you can find several reviews for most Auto Transport companies. Read a few reviews to help you make an educated decision.

Over 90% of Auto Transport Companies are Brokers.

The majority of Auto Transport Companies don’t own and/or operate auto transport rigs.

Who’s bidding on who?.
When you get a quote from different companies/brokers it may seem they are all competing for your business. But the reality is you are bidding for the trucking companies to move your car.

Auto Transport Example.
On a Popular route (Say FL to CA) there’s usually 15-20 cars waiting to be picked up on the national dispatch list (used by all truckers). They are all priced from high to low. The trucking companies are naturally motivated by money. So if you picked the lowest quote and there’s 19 cars all quoted higher on the list, Guess who’s not getting picked up. You’ll be the last to move, or you simply may never get picked up while a dishonest broker promises you the world and takes your money.

Auto Transport Right Now or Whenever?

In an industry where money talks, the speed you need your Car Shipped and your budget will determine the price.

The price should be All-Inclusive covering taxes, tolls, fuel, and insurance. Your Vehicle(s) will be Insured up to $100,000 at no additional cost.

How long will delivery take?

Dispatch times vary depending on origin and destination locations. For an accurate transit time quote, call your Auto Transport company. It is important to remember, drivers are limited by law to a specific number of miles and hours per day. Other variables that may affect transit times include deliveries along the way, severe weather and road conditions.
