Shipping a Car to Gallatin
When you begin to contact various companies to get a quote to ship your car to Gallatin, there are a few questions that you need to have the right answers to when the agent asks in order to get an accurate quote that won’t change when the driver arrives to pick the car up:
Has your car been modified?
There are many modifications that people don’t take into consideration or don’t feel are important when booking transport. You need to let the agent know of any and all modifications because many can affect the type of carrier that must be used for the car. For instance, if you have a large SUV or pickup truck, don’t tell the company that you have a small truck just to try to save money. When the carrier arrives and they have sent one that will not accommodate a large or heavier vehicle, it will delay transport and it could take days, or even weeks, to get a different one to the area. Also, many modifications like lowering a car or a lift kit will affect the height and will also need a non-standard carrier. Be very open about anything that has been done to the vehicle so you can have the right carrier dispatched and the most accurate price available.
Is the vehicle inoperable?
If the vehicle does not run, the agent most definitely needs to know this in advance. While most companies can transport inoperable vehicles, there are many that will not. Also, the company will need to dispatch a truck that is equipped with the right tools to load and unload an inoperable vehicle as they cannot be driven onto a regular carrier as other cars can. Make sure the agent knows if your car is running or not.
How do you want to transport the car?
Most standard motor vehicles will be shipped on an open carrier. Open carriers are the least expensive types of transport and are the best choice for regular cars and trucks. Enclosed carriers are best for expensive cars like vintage, exotic and luxury vehicles. You need to know ahead of time what type of transport you want to use and tell the agent up front. While most carriers have open carriers, not all will have enclosed carriers. If the company you choose does not possess an enclosed carrier and you have a classic vehicle, you will want to contact a different company.
