Is the company reliable?

There are many auto shipping companies. You should go for one that is reliable. This reliability comes with many years of experience and a track record of successful delivery.

Is the company credible?

It is important for the auto shipping company to be insured, licensed and certified. This makes them credible. Such credibility is important to evaluate their reliability for handling the successful delivery of your car.

Do they have adequate human resources?

A good auto shipping company should have the right human required to handle the movement of your vehicle. This means they should possess a team of highly qualified professionals in the shipping industry. A strong network of shipping agents and customs brokers in different parts of the world is also necessary to guarantee they can deliver the vehicle wherever their clients are.

Can they handle documentations properly?

In the shipping industry, a little mistake in documentation can cost a lot, from delay in arrival to even loss of the item.

Will your vehicle be insured?

You should deal with a shipping company that provides insurance coverage for their clients’ vehicles. With this, you can have peace and be sure it will arrive, knowing that the safety and security of your vehicle is guaranteed.

Do they offer tracking information?

When shipping your car, they should be able to offer real time information on the progress of your car.

What is the nature of their shipping services?

Does the shipping company offer door to door delivery of vehicles? This is more convenient for clients, as they can have their vehicle dropped off just at their door step. A good auto shipping company should be able to handle both domestic and international delivery. This means they can deliver from state to state, on the national boundary, and even across the country, from coast to coast.

Typically, there is the option of open or enclosed carriers for vehicles. Open carriers are usually less expensive, but the vehicle is exposed to weather factors and risk of abrasion. Enclosed carriers offer more protection, but are more expensive.
