Using Elyria Vehicle Transport Companies
Where To Start – If you’ve never had a car shipped before, you may find that it’s difficult to find straightforward information about how the process works. Auto transport companies are quick to point out the services they offer, but not great about offering resources to their customers to help them make an informed decision. The good news if you’re reading this is that you’re on the right track. As with any other industry, the internet is a great place to begin your research and find out what services are offered by different companies. (In the next tip we’ll take a look at how to research companies and what information you’ll need to do it.) If you’re fortunate enough to have a friend that’s shipped a vehicle before, or know someone in a related industry, seek out their advice. You can also ask real estate agents and car dealerships for a recommendation.
How To Research Companies – Whether they are a broker, freight forwarder, or carrier, companies involved in the business of shipping cars will have a license number they should be willing to give you. The regulating body in the U.S. for cargo transport is the FMCSA, or Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration and you can look up information about auto movers in their database here. Any company that has operating authority with the FMCSA will have either an MC#, FF#, or MX#. With this licensing information (as well as a company name or USDOT#), you can find out about company history, the current status of their operating authority, and their recent safety records. You can usually tell a lot about an auto shipper by their web presence too. If they have an up-to-date website that includes their services and information to help you as a customer, that’s usually a good sign.
What To Avoid – By the same token, a company website that offers little more than a listing of services and a form for you to fill out can be an indicator that they are less experienced or only operate within a small area. (Many local auto shippers don’t have the staffing to maintain a full web presence or high-quality customer service, which is why there are many brokers in the industry.) How long a company has been in business can sometimes–but not always–mean they are less familiar with the ins and outs of moving vehicles. This isn’t as big of an issue for standard, regional car shipping, but for long distance, overseas transport, or specialized services, experience really counts. Finally, be wary of any company that requires a large upfront payment or doesn’t offer a non-binding cost estimate–the industry standard is that price quotes are free and deposits should represent only a small portion of the total cost.
