3 Essential Car Shipping Tips

If you’ve ever shipped your car before, you know how difficult it can be to find a reliable carrier who won’t charge you a fortune and who will deliver your car on time. Here at A1AutoTransport, we help by giving you auto transport quotes from reliable carriers so you can make the best decision for your own car. Here are 3 things to keep in mind when going through the car shipping process.

Don’t Settle For The First Company You Find

Car shipping companies vary wildly in terms of their quality and reliability. Browse around online and visit rating sites to find out how customers have felt about the service they received. If you see consistently negative reviews about meeting timelines and the condition of their vehicles upon arrival, it’s a good sign that you should probably focus your search elsewhere.

Ask Friends And Family For Recommendations

Chances are, you’ve had a friend or family member that has shipped their car in the past. They probably did some research leading up to their decision, so don’t put in any extra work that you don’t have to. Post on Facebook or Twitter asking your followers if they’ve had a good experience with a car company. Online reviews are helpful, but car shipping companies can also game the system. A personal recommendation is always the most reliable source.
