Using Indio Vehicle Transport Companies
- Open & Enclosed Carriers - When you hire a company to ship a vehicle, you typically have a choice between two types of carriers: open air and enclosed. Most cars are shipped using an open-air, multi-car carrier because it allows for more vehicles to be moved at once and reduces the cost. If you have a luxury, exotic or classic car that you want to have shipped on its own, enclosed transport is the best option. Unlike an open air carrier, enclosed transport entirely shields the car from weather and road hazards, not to mention a higher degree of privacy than you get with an open carrier.

- Comparing Estimates - Most of the companies working in the car shipping industry give out free cost estimates to prospective customers, which is great for consumers. With a relatively small investment of time, you can quickly get prices from companies with some basic information. Generally, this means you need to have some dates in mind when you’d like the vehicle picked up and delivered, and of course, you’ll need to know the type of vehicle, where it’s located and where it’s going. Armed with this information, you’re ready to contact the companies that look the best to you a decent website is usually a pretty good indicator of a quality company.
- Deposit - Some companies will request a deposit be placed on your order to ensure you get a spot on one of the carriers. While not every company will ask that you make an upfront payment, those that do should either explain how the deposit is refunded, or if it is applied to the overall charge of auto transport. In either case, the deposit should not be a substantial part of the overall costs. Usually, a small percentage is charged so that companies that have customers back out or cancel their appointment get some form of compensation. Make sure you ask the company moving your car about their refund and cancellation policy.
