Using East Lansing, IL Vehicle Transport Companies
Motor Carrier Number – A motor carrier license number also referred to as an MC Docket number, is required if a company ships any type of cargo between states. An MC# can also be a handy way to look up information about a company using the consumer database report from the U.S. Department of Transportation. Operating authority is not always expressed as an MC# however; it may also be an FF# or an MX#, each of which has a different meaning. An MC# is a motor carrier license number and is needed if a company is going to move vehicles between state lines. An FF# is for a freight forwarder, which is essentially a broker that connects customers and shippers–they are not motor carriers. An MX# applies to motor carriers that are owned or operated from Mexico.
Picking A Shipper – Once you’ve done some research about the companies you’re considering, it’s time to get some cost estimates and compare services. Unless you need a highly specialized service–like moving a customized or exotic car–the most important consideration is how comfortable you are trusting a company with your vehicle. Price is always a consideration, of course, but things like the quality of their customer service, professionalism and ability to deliver on time and as promised are equally important. The price quotes you get, even from competing shippers, should have some consistency to them and you should discard any options that seem unreasonably high or low in comparison to the others. Just remember, some types of service cost more than others (see below), so make sure you’re comparing the same services when assessing price estimates.
Premium Services – Premium services are those that carry an additional charge with them, or that are not part of standard auto transport services. This can include something as simple as choosing an enclosed carrier over an open-air transport truck, or as comprehensive as choosing air freight, climate controlled shipping and supplemental insurance coverage. Most often, the type of service you choose is based on the what kind of vehicle you’re shipping. Standard cars and light trucks that are just used for daily driving will rarely require additional services such as these. However, if you need any of the following shipped, it will likely cost more than the standard price and could potentially require some specialization:
- Exotic, custom & modified vehicles
- Large trucks, heavy equipment & SUVs
- Motorhomes, RVs and fifth wheels
- Trikes, sidecars, and dirt bikes
- Performance vehicles
- Luxury and high-end cars
