Using Dearborn Heights Auto Transport Services
Verify Licensing & Insurance - Every company that moves cars within the United States must be registered and insured with U.S. Department of Transportation. While the DOT has gotten more aggressive in cracking down on unregistered carriers, there are still some less reputable companies in the industry that continue the practice or working without proper licensure. In order to protect yourself against this, you can verify insurance and license information with car shippers at the website for the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration here. Using the FMCSA portal, you can look up information about companies using their USDOT number, MC#, FF#, MX#, legal name and DBA (doing business as) name. Reports can be viewed as a PDF or in HTML and include information such as operating authority status and insurance coverage.
Compare Prices - Once you’ve found a few companies that meet the insurance and licensing requirements, it’s time to get some price quotes. The auto shipping industry is set up so that customers can get free estimates from almost any company, which can be quite helpful as a consumer. Because of this, you can contact as many shipping companies as you’d like to compare prices, services, shipping times and delivery options. We generally recommend that customers contact at least three companies before making a final decision on which one to choose. Part of the reason it’s important to contact more than one company is so that you can get a feel for the price range and spot the shippers that are priced too high or unrealistically low.

Call With Questions - After getting cost estimates, it should be relatively easy to spot the companies that offer quality service at an affordable price, but there’s still one more step you should take: pick up the phone and call the shippers you’re considering. Calling serves a twofold purpose: it’s an opportunity to have your questions answered as well as get a read on the level of customer service they provide. If you don’t have any questions, here is a list of common questions that are helpful when working with a car carrier:
- Are price quotes all-inclusive?
- Do you offer open and enclosed carriers?
- How much insurance do you carry?
- What is your complaint resolution process?
- What is the timeframe for delivery?
- Do you have door-to-door shipping available?
- What forms of payment do you accept?
- Are you a broker or carrier?
- What is your MC# or USDOT#?
- Do you charge for cancellation?
