Safe And Reliable Chicopee Car Shipping Services By A-1 Auto Transport
Chicopee is a city in Western Massachusetts, just north of Springfield along the Connecticut River. Chicopee has a unique relationship to the automotive industry: it was where one of the first gasoline-powered cars in the U.S., the Duryea, was road tested in 1893. A second road test, done in November of the same year, garnered significant media coverage for the Duryea brothers and their “motor wagon.” The original vehicle for their road test has since been gifted to the United States National Museum.

Using Chicopee Vehicle Transport Companies
- Comparing Prices - When comparing prices between auto shipping companies, there are a few important points to remember. Perhaps the most important is to beware of the lowball quote. With so many companies competing against one another, some of them take advantage of customers by offering a disproportionately low price estimate, only to tack on additional fees later on to make up the difference. This practice is less widespread now than it has been in the past, thanks mainly due to the FMCSA keeping better tabs on companies that engage in unethical behavior. Part of the reason it’s helpful to collect multiple cost estimates before making a decision is not only to get the best value but to be able to pick out a lowball quote when you see one.
- Open or Enclosed - One of the main choices you’ll have to make when scheduling a pickup for your vehicle is what type of carrier you prefer. The two options are enclosed and open air carriers--the more common and more affordable of the two being the open air carrier. They can generally move several vehicles at once, thus resulting in the lower cost. Enclosed carriers tend to move vehicles individually, but offer a higher level of protection by transporting the vehicle completely enclosed in the carrier. Enclosed car shipping is recommended for luxury vehicles and high-value autos. Insurance coverage applies to either method of transport.
- GPS Tracking - Many of the best auto transport companies today have implemented GPS tracking as part of their service, allowing customers to get real-time status updates on their shipment as it’s being transported. This practice is becoming more common in the industry, both as an element of customer service and as a method of oversight within the industry to make sure car shippers are transparent and honest in their dealings.
