Using Kirkland Vehicle Transport Companies
- Shop Around - One aspect of the auto transport industry that is very helpful for customers is the price quote system. Almost every company that hauls vehicles will offer a free cost estimate to prospective customers. This means that there’s no limit to the amount of price comparing you can do between companies. Once you’ve contacted a handful of companies, you’ll get a more clear idea of what the price is likely to be, as well as whether certain companies offer more savings. Take advantage of the free quotes by comparing prices and don’t forget to ask questions!
- Document Damages - It’s important to document any preexisting damages on your vehicle before it’s picked up by the transporter. There is a document called the bill of lading (see below) that details the specifics of any type of cargo transport, including vehicles. The document should include information such as location, destination, your information, the auto carriers information, and perhaps most importantly, the condition of the vehicle. The bill of lading is used to resolve disputes between customers and auto shippers so make sure that the information included on it is accurate! It’s also recommended that you document the vehicle’s condition with photographs.
- Multiple Vehicles - Shipping more than one vehicle at a time will usually get you a discount from an auto transporters. This is the method that car dealerships and rental agencies use when having inventory shipped since the potential for savings goes up the more cars you ship. This same method applies to private collectors and individual owners that may need a car hauled. You should pay less per vehicle when shipping two, three or four cars with increasing discounts applied with each additional car.
