Using Hendersonville, TN Vehicle Transport Companies
Cost - There are several factors that go into the cost of transporting a vehicle. Some of them, like distance and type of vehicle, are obvious, while other costs tend to be related to the type of service requested. Here’s an overview of the most common things that will impact the cost of shipping a car:
- City or origin and destination (or address for door-to-door transport)
- Pickup and delivery dates and timeframe
- Vehicle type, size, and weight
- Service requested: open air or enclosed carrier, terminal or direct delivery
- Additional services like motorcycle crating & shrink wrapping boats
- Extra insurance (basic insurance is included in the price & suitable for most jobs)
- Use of storage facilities
Complaint Resolution - A great way to get an accurate feel for the type of customer service a car shipper provides is by asking what their complaint resolution process is like. If they don’t have a system in place to deal with customer issues, that’s a pretty clear indication of that you’ll be getting less-than-stellar communication and professionalism. Ideally, an auto transport company should have a customer service number for issues, an online form for registering a complaint, or both. In a lot of cases, this is covered under the terms and conditions section of the company website and the customer service representative will direct you there. In the next tip, we’ll explain the document used in car shipping that’s your best form of consumer protection, the bill of lading.
Bill of Lading - For all practical purposes, the bill of lading is a detailed “receipt” that you receive when shipping a vehicle. It should contain basic information about the shipment: what type of cargo is being moved, where it’s located and being moved to, the physical condition of the vehicle, and the name of the owner and driver. Because it’s the primary document used in the industry, it’s important that customers fully understand what it covers and the importance of its accuracy in resolving a dispute. Not only is the bill of lading your proof of purchase, but it’s also your proof of damage should anything happen to your vehicle during the process of delivery. Make sure you carefully note the condition of your vehicle and compare it with the driver’s assessment on the bill of lading!
