How/Where To Source A Chauffeur To Drive Your Car To Another City/State?
Long distance moving need not be stressful and complicated. You could have your car transported by road or train; although most people prefer to use the former option owing to its convenience. Autotransporter companies use two types of car carriers; open and closed. Even though they are slightly pricey, professional chauffeur services come with loads of benefits. You get a full insurance cover for the car and the trip; you can pack some belongings in the car or even ride with the hired driver.
Search for prospective drivers for hire
Some drive cars for a living while moving companies also provide the service. Go online and search chauffeurs. For a pro who takes their work seriously, he or she will have a website complete with their email address and telephone contact. For companies, you can also get details of their location.
Read their profiles
Businesses, as well as individuals in the auto transport industry, know too well that clients want someone with skills and a good reputation. From the chauffeur service provider website, look for driver profiles. Pay attention to a driver’s accident record, if any and whether they specialize in long distance driving. Choose a driver that has been to your target destination before.

Schedule inquiry calls
Narrow down your search to around three or four drivers. Contact them or the firms they work for and request for a quote detailing their services and the charges. In your phone call conversation, it helps to state your current location and where you are moving to. Share information such as the make and model of your car, year of manufacture, mode of the gear transmission and so on.
Review the quotes
Persons interested in your business proposal will respond by sending their quotes and the best way to examine these is with the help of a spreadsheet. Have suitably headed columns for the cost; in the rows, list the service range. Enter the price of every item. After that, begin to compare while paying attention to not only the money aspect but also the value offered.
Pick your driver
Once you are satisfied that you have your person, run some background checks. Go back to the internet and find out what other people feel about the service. If the positive reviews supersede disappointments, know that the driver is of high repute. You can now engage the individual in a more in-depth discussion. Do not hesitate to negotiate a lower price.
Driving your car to a city or state where you are relocating is cheaper than hiring a truck service. You require a chauffeur with experience and who has been to the region before. Initiate an online search seeking to find professional auto transport services nearby. Go through the driver profiles of the persons you have selected. Request for quotes and use them to find the most appropriate provider. Once you zero-in on a driver you like, check out their reputation while also negotiating for a price that you deem affordable.
