Using Alhambra Vehicle Transport Companies
- Low Prices - It may be tempting to automatically choose the company that offers the lowest price. Be very careful about that approach! Some companies in the industry will offer unreasonably low rates in order to get your business, only to hike up the price later on, or tack on additional fees during the process of shipping. The best method for guarding against such tactics is to research companies using the FMCSA website, and by contacting multiple car shippers to get an idea of the true price range. The rates will vary based on the company and the availability of their carriers, but the price quotes you receive should be relatively comparable for the same services.
- Ask Questions - It’s important to ask questions of the company that moves your car. Anything you’re unsure of or need to be explained, don’t hesitate to ask. Moving a vehicle is a big job and you have every right to know as much about the process you need to feel comfortable with the company. Here are some questions you can ask a car shipper to find out how they work with their customers and what sort of company history they have.
- What is your refund policy?
- Do you offer open and enclosed carriers?
- What is your MC/MX number or U.S. DOT number? (using the FMCSA link above, companies can be researched with this information).
- Preparation - Before the driver picks up your vehicle and loads it onto the carrier for transport, there are a few things you’ll need to do in preparation. Most companies will request that the vehicle is cleaned, both inside and out, before they inspect it for any damages. Anything that is temporary or can be removed from the car (again, inside and out) should be stored so that it doesn’t move around while moving the car. The gas level should not be more than 1/4 full, though some companies are okay with up to 1/8 of a tank. Bear in mind that if you have more than the requested amount of gas in the car, you will likely have to pay an additional fee to the shipper. It’s recommended that customers also take photos of any preexisting damages on the vehicle so that you have a basis for comparison when the car is dropped off.
