Auto-transport companies are designed to facilitate a person's need to transport cars from one location to another. Whether a person is moving or they have sold their vehicle via Internet auction, car can be transported without adding mileage or road wear to it.
In some cases, it's just easier to transport a car rather than make lengthy drive out of time considerations. There are some things to know about auto-transport companies in advance.
The process of shipping a car from one location to another, especially across long distances, requires planning ahead and doing your homework. Whether you are a frequent shipper or a first timer, always shop price with various different car transport services.
Factors such as costs of gas, number of cars already going in that direction and seasons can impact expense.
The auto transport service will need to know where car is going from and to, make, model and year of car as well as when customer wants car to ship. Most transporters will not guarantee exact dates, if one promises you that then make sure you have it in writing.
All transport companies require a contract, which should be carefully reviewed prior to signing. The contract will cover information needed on topics like damage to vehicle, delays, cancellation and accident as well as insurance coverage.
If insurance is not listed on contract, it's a good idea to find out what transporter offers by way of insurance.
In general, auto transporters are safe, trustworthy and vehicle will arrive in great condition. However, contract stipulates all conditions for recourse, including reimbursement for damages in event there are any, so be sure to look it over carefully.
