Compare Auto Transport Companies: What to Keep In Mind

Moving to a new city can be equally exciting and nerve-wracking. It can be exciting to start a new job, meet new people, and explore a new place. Planning the move and having your belongings shipped there can be a hassle. Things can seem even more daunting if you've decided to ship your car too. But, it doesn't have to be this way if you work with the right auto transport company.

How do you look for and choose the right car shipping company you ask?

Here's what you need to know.

Comparing Auto Transport Companies: What You Need to Know

At first glance, auto shipping companies seem to be offering the same thing: to have your car delivered to your destination safely and on time. But, when you take a closer look, you can soon discover that companies differ very much from one another.

So, here's how to compare auto transport companies to find the best one for you.


Know What You Want

Firstly, try to think about the type of services you need. This will narrow down your search quite a lot. For example, if you own a luxury car and want enclosed auto shipping to protect it from the elements, then filter your results by looking for companies that can offer this type of shipping option.

Make Sure the Company Is Licensed and Insured

Your car is probably one of your most valuable possessions. Even if we are only talking about sentimental value, you probably want to know that your vehicle is in good and capable hands. When you make a list of potential companies, make sure that they are licensed to operate in your state as well as across state lines. Most importantly, you should also check that they offer insurance. Even if the company is extremely well prepared and careful with the cargo, accidents can still happen during transit, so it's best to know that your car will be covered by insurance if anything happens.

Look at Customers Reviews

Great marketing can't make up for bad services. An auto transport company might look good on paper - good rates, a simple process, and so on - but by reading online reviews you can get a better idea of the kind of experience you can expect.

Check The Rates

While lower rates may seem more appealing, it's not always a good idea to opt for the cheapest company. Lower rates could mean that the company doesn't have sufficient insurance coverage, for example, or maybe its fleet is outdated. Look for a company that offers quality services, extensive insurance, and can safely ship your car while still offering affordable rates.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★ choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

Luis Rodriguez
You have my full support and recommendation!

A1 Auto Transport... From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

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.
