Shipping your vehicle is important. We hope you use these tips when choosing your auto shipper.
Schedule your auto shipping at least 2-3 weeks before you move, giving enough time to arrange for a car mover carrier to pick up your vehicle. Basically, the more advance time the better. If you are not available, please arrange an alternative authorized party such as a neighbor, friend or relative you can trust to transfer the car to the car mover.
It is important to verify the good standing and valid licensing of any car moving company or auto shipping service. We urge you to contact your local Better Business Bureau as well as to verify that the shipper’s license is valid and active with the appropriate transportation agency (such as the state or federal Department Of Transportation). It is important that you take the time to check references and get all services agreed to by the company in writing. A commonly used review site for the auto transport business is www.transportreviews.com. Elite Auto Shipper is a 5 Star Rated company on this review site.
Paying for Shipping Your Vehicle
While some car movers and auto shippers require payment in advance, Elite Auto Shipper does not require a deposit until pickup. If a deposit is given, amount due is always required at time of delivery – oftentimes with a cashier’s check or cash. Always make sure the price quoted is the final price, including broker fee, insurance, surcharge, etc. Get this in writing.
When you Decide, Don’t Make Price the Deciding Factor
This is the easiest way to get burned. Low-ball bids could mask less reliable moving practices. A method to get the best price is to take the average of all the quotes you receive. Remember you get what you pay for. Use several factors in addition to price: references, performance reports and reported complaints to make your final decision.
