Using Jonesboro Auto Transport Services
- Filing a Complaint - If your car was damaged and you were not compensated by the carrier, or they did not fulfill the contract as promised in some other way, you may want to file a formal complaint. To do this, you can go to the National Consumer Complaint Database for the U.S. Department of Transportation and click on the section labeled “Public.” This is where you can report safety issues or unfair business practices related to home moving companies, auto shippers, and brokers. After filing a complaint, it gets reviewed by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, who may contact you for more information. If their investigation indicates there was negligence or foul play on the part of the company, the complaint will be documented as part of their permanent record.
- Motorcycle Shipping - Most, but not all, auto shippers can move motorcycles, depending on what type of method you prefer. The most common way to ship a bike is by securing it to a pallet, which makes it easier to load and unload from the carrier, as well as keeping it stable during delivery. Another form of palletized motorcycle shipping is called “crating,” in which the bike is covered on all sides in a wooden enclosure. For customers who wish to have an extra level of care and protection when shipping their motorcycle, some companies offer enclosed carriers that are specifically designed for moving bikes. For a more in-depth look at the motorcycle shipping process, or to learn more about what we offer, you can view our motorcycle services page here.
- What a Good Shipper Does - There are a few signs you should look for when researching auto shippers. First things first, make sure you contact more than one or two before making a decision, which will give you a better idea of what price to expect and find a balance between costs and services. Any auto transport company should be happy to give you a cost estimate with just some basic information. (Take a look at our quote form at the type right of this page for an example.) An established car shipping company should also give you options, both for the type of carrier and delivery method. The two types of carriers are open and enclosed. An enclosed carrier offers more protection, but costs slightly more. In terms of delivery, you should be able to choose between shipping to a transport terminal near you, or directly to a specific address or location.
