Advice - How to Ship my Car
You are either coming home or going off to college, relocating cross-country for that important job, or going to your 2nd home, or buying a car at auction such as eBay Motors - you have everything under control, except one thing, who will SHIP MY CAR? This can be a very unnerving experience, but these simple steps can help put your mind at ease. Auto Shipping TLC (Tender Loving Care) is always available to explain the transport process and answer any questions you may have.
Gather information about your shipping start and end points, the dates that your car needs to be shipped on (and any flexibility you have within those dates). Flexibility is the key to lower car shipping rates. Also a "Plan B" just in case you need to travel before your car can be picked up.
Identify if you want your car to be shipped (either via open or enclosed carrier).
Your car is shipped on a truck carrier with proper insurance. The carrier provides estimated pick-up and delivery times depending on the distance your vehicle will be delivered. It is important that you recognize that sometimes "things can happen" such as traffic, weather, a person to have their auto picked up prior to you is delayed and also a truck can break down due to mechanical issues - even as simple as a flat tire (just like a car).
The most economical is door-to-door service where we would utilize a pre-screened driver or a company we have previously used. We have worked very hard to form relationships with some reputable carriers for both well traveled routes as well as obscure routes. These drivers are not employees of the company but are matched-up with their desired destination along with the destination of your vehicle - including price. Remember - Auto Shipping TLC is a broker, just like anyone else you may speak to. Drivers are not able to take the time to work on quotes - they are driving or loading/unloading autos.
Unfortunately, it is difficult to provide a delivery date until a driver is located that meets all of our requirements and passes a screening process. Once a driver is confirmed, their driving time is limited and are assigned a date for the vehicle to be delivered by. We are one of the few companies that offer this method of shipping your vehicle. So when calling for car shipping quotes, keep in mind that not all companies will offer this.
As you seek for "ship my car quotes" from car shippers in any part of the country, find out specifically what each firm offers. Even better - get a referral from someone who has transported a car or check with the Better Business Bureau.
You can get a quote online or call our office. By contacting an office we will take into consideration more than just miles. A move from or to hard to get to places as opposed to major cities and driving routes can make a difference regardless of the miles.
Selecting a dependable auto shipper doesn't always mean the cheapest in price. You want your vehicle transport experience to be stress free so, if service is important; go with a company that will take the time to answer all of your questions. Remember, your vehicle is one of the most expensive and important purchases you have made. Don't let just anyone ship your car.
Now that you selected a dependable auto shipper, you can relax.
