Using Carlsbad Vehicle Transport Companies
- Brokers - Much of the cargo shipping industry relies on brokers to put clients in touch with carriers and this is definitely true of the auto transport industry. When you search online for a company, many of the websites you encounter will be brokers that you submit your information to, who then connect with a carrier that ships the vehicle for you. Brokers have access to load boards where they place your request and allow companies to bid on the shipment. Booking your car shipping with a broker can be a good way to get a low price without having to call around to several companies.
- Carriers - A carrier is the person or company that handles the shipping of the vehicle. If you prefer to deal directly with the person who will be moving your vehicle, you should find a carrier in your area. It should be noted that many companies act as both a broker and a carrier, taking the requests that fit with their delivery routes and passing the others along to a carrier that can ship the car.
- FMCSA Registration - Both brokers and carriers in the auto transport industry must be registered with the FMCSA, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. Brokers and carriers will be issued an MC#, or motor carrier license number, from the FMCSA and carriers will also have a USDOT#. You can easily do some basic research about a company with either of the numbers on the FMCSA website to determine if they are a broker or carrier if it’s not explained on their website.
Long Distance Auto Transport to/from Carlsbad
If you’re looking for a carrier to take your car to Carlsbad, we have 2 main types you can choose from: enclosed and open. Enclosed carriers are more expensive to book, so people tend to only pick them if they need the delivery to be fast or if they have a fragile or very expensive vehicle that needs special care and protection.
For most auto transport requests, open carriers are employed. They’re very large, able to carry 12 cars at a time, so the price of using one is also reasonable. The cost of transportation is shared with many other customers, so the company can lower it significantly.
Shipping Luxury and Classic Cars in Carlsbad
Transporting a luxury or classic car around Phoenix using the DIY method is usually not the best idea. Also, if your car is supposed to be presented in a show, then dust, rain or things that fly towards it may destroy the image you are trying to accentuate.
An enclosed truck is the solution to all these problems. Such carriers isolate the car from outside problems. They need less time to transport and are generally more reliable. For more details, you can contact our main office using the phone number presented on our website.
