How To Ship Your Franklin

Moving cross country, for whatever reason, is a very tedious exercise. Aside from the fun of experiencing a new environment, one of the services one will likely require is that of a car shipping company. So how does one determine whom the ideal carrier will be? Here are some general tips for choosing the ideal shipping partner for your Franklin.

The very first factor one should consider when choosing a car shipment company is the type of cars they are used to shipping.Different types of cars require different shipment conditions, both locally and to or from overseas locations. How successful the shipping process will turn out to be will ultimately depend on the amount of experience the company has in shipping that specific type of vehicle. The normal sedan will not need much, but the care required for a vintage or high-end car can definitely only be provided by an automobile transport company with enough experience.

The location of the transportation company is another important factor to consider. While many people search for businesses online, dealing with a company that has offices locally is always comforting. If you are going to hand over your prized possession to people you have only just met to transport over a long distance, then it is only right that one knows where their offices are, and who the contact people they will be dealing with are. When dealing with a company that has local offices, getting access to them for updates or clarification will always be easier.

Reputation is important regardless of the industry one operates in. In the car transport industry, with the horror stories of companies only after the money bringing back damaged cars, or colluding with untrustworthy individuals to steal cars, reputation goes a long way. Only choose a company that has been around for quite some time, and one that has been consistently providing reliable services to its customers.

Many companies will always have a review or feedback section on their website, where they will likely have a few comments by past clients. It is unlikely, though, that a company will publish negative comments on its website. Luckily, there are review websites from which one can get important information about the state of the companies they are looking at. Websites like the better business bureau offer useful information, going back as far as 36 months.

The speed of operations is another important element of the shipping process. Everyone wants their shipping done as quickly as possible, so check out the expected speeds of delivery the companies are offering. The best in the business will likely have a regular shipping schedule, making it easier to predict how long it will take for the vehicle to be delivered. Avoid those companies that do not offer a regular schedule or those that do not give a clear estimate of the time it will take.

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.

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.
