How To Ship Your Gray

With the new house bought and all set for the move, what remains is the small matter of moving that vintage Gray all the way cross country to the new home. Should you decide on a car shipping company to do it, here are a few pointers on what to look for.

Ask for the auto shipping company’s registration and licensing. The auto transport company must be compliant with the legal standards set for the shipping industry. Ask them for details of their registration and licensing, their USDOT number and details of their licensing in the specific states in which they operate. Additionally, and especially for overseas shipping companies, it might be useful to choose a company that is affiliated with a professional organization, like FIDI, RIM or AMSA. Such organizations hold their members to higher standards than the rest.

Loading is an important aspect of the car shipping process. Even though companies offer different variations, there are two basic types, door to door and terminal based loading services. In door to door, the carrier or container is brought to one’s home and loaded on location. Terminal or warehouse based shipping involves driving the vehicle to a nearby warehouse, from where it will be shipped to another warehouse and picked up. Door to door is convenient for the individuals with busy schedules, or those that have vehicles that are not in drivable condition. On the other hand, one might find terminal based loading cheap if they have the time and resources to drop and pick up their vehicle at both ends of the journey.

Technological advancements of the day allow shipping companies to keep track of everything that happens in transit. Choose an auto transport company that makes available this technology to its customers, giving them the opportunity to keep track of their vehicles every step of the way, whether locally or interstate. However, keep in mind that for some companies, this might mean having to pay more for the services. Confirm whether the tracking is included in the overall fee, or whether one has to pay for it.

How much does it cost? The influence of the size of the overall quotation on the choice of shipping company cannot be understated.

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.
