Finding Nearest Car Shipping Companies?

When you need a car shipped, it's only natural to look for an auto transport company nearby. After all, it doesn't make much sense to look for a car shipper in Georgia if you need a vehicle shipped from California to New York. Beyond that, it's infinitely more helpful when you work with a company near to you, if only to be able to easily contact them or visit in person if you have any questions or concerns about pricing, how the process works, or anything else you may wonder about.

Most long distance and nationwide auto shippers tend to have at least regional shipping experience in certain areas so it's not necessarily essential that they be headquartered where your vehicle is located. However, in a best case scenario, you can find a local car shipper that not only works in the area where your car is located, but also the area in which you want it shipped. If you should happen to need short-term storage in addition to transport services, it becomes slightly more important that you work with a company that's near to you. Again, it's not a must, but as you can imagine, it's easier to facilitate storage if the company has a physical location in the cities or areas in which you're shipping to or from.

What To Look For In An Auto Transport Company

Experience - This is something you'll probably seek out in any type of service oriented business you plan to use and car shipping is no different, in fact it's more important than many other industries. The simple fact of the matter is that auto transport companies take a long time to build expertise, particularly those with wide ranging service areas. Imagine you're shipping a classic car like a 1969 Chevy Camaro from Arizona to Florida, would you want to deal with a company that's never dealt with shipping classics, or one that hasn't operated extensively in either state? Probably not, which is why it's important to feel out car shippers based on their experience and expertise for your specific type of shipment.

Cost-Efficiency - Everyone wants to save money when shipping a car, which is one benefit of pricing the service of several local options if you're looking for transport with a nearby company. We generally recommend getting quotes from at least three to five companies before deciding on which one to use. This way, you'll be able to not only compare prices amongst them, but also so you can sniff out any of the suspiciously low estimates, known in the business as the dreaded "low ball quote." Even with different companies, the prices should be somewhat similar and you may find that some even offer discounts.

Reputation - The reputation a company has is usually tied to their experience and the level of service they provide, which are both important factors that should be taken into account. It's a good idea to do some looking around the web to see what others who've used a company have to say about it. If you consistently find bad reviews everywhere you look, that may be a sign that you should move on to other options. That said, don't take every review as gospel--every company out there has some bad reviews or dissatisfied customers and one bad experience doesn't define a company's entire mode of operation.

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
