So, you want to ship a car
Before you do, here's a little bit about the whole auto transport process
Not a whole bunch of filler mind you, just the facts.
The first thing you want to do is to make ...
sure you have all the details about your vehicle including the year model and make.
Make sure to note if it's not in running condition, and also if there have been any aftermarket customizations including but not limited to custom rims, oversized tires, brush guards, light bars, rocket engines or laser cannons as this will affect the price, sometimes drastically.
You also want to have the complete pickup and delivery address if possible but at least the city and state if you don't have specifics.
Don't be too hasty in making your decision, Do your homework, go to industry review sites like transportreviews.com and check out the company's records.
When you get the person on the phone, ask questions and pay attention to the answers, remember though, this person is a broker 99% of the time and it's the driver and current conditions that set the price, and whatever you do, don't whip out your credit card and give a deposit to anybody that hasn't provided you with the drivers information.
Keep in mind when picking the best carrier to move your vehicle, it should really come down to who has the best reputation and whom you feel most comfortable with, price should be the last consideration on this list, of course you want the lowest price, but think about it, what good is the lowest price if your vehicle never moves or if you get called back with a much higher price, what you really want is the best price that actually gets your car moved safely and on time.
Make sure that you have everything in writing that you discussed on the phone and as a reminder, make sure that you have disclosed all the relevant information about the car to the company handling the transport, if the vehicle is taller, wider, heavier or lower to the ground than the way it came from the factory then you may have to pay more.
