Car manufacturers and dealers have been doing it for years and now car transport services are making it simpler for average consumer. Transporting cars, whether from manufacturer to dealer or from one city to another saves on physical wear and tear of vehicle's exterior as well as mechanical stress on engine.
In order to select a transport service, first question you'll want answered is how much will it cost? As with any type of shopping you should comparison shop prices and services from various car transport companies.
You'll need to know origin point and destination for car and approximate date you want vehicle to depart. The car transport service will also need make, model and year of car in question.
The client needs to know what type of transport they are looking for whether it's door-to-door or point-to-point (i.e. a central location in one city to another.) Some transport services also offer covered transport, which will protect car from weather elements, rocks and dust. This can be very beneficial in transport of vintage or classic cars
Once a company is selected, payment arrangements will need to be made. Most companies want a deposit of 15 to 20% prior to car's departure and full payment made when it arrives at destination. These payments are usually required to be in form of cash or a cashier's check.
It's usually a good plan to check fine print on contract once it's been agreed to. If you cancel it, transport company may charge a fee. It's also a good idea to put a clause somewhere in there that allows for you to cancel if they have not picked up your car within some number of days of scheduled date.
