Using Livermore Vehicle Transport Companies
- Shopping Around - We strongly advise any customer to contact several companies and compare what they offer before making a decision. Not only is this easy to do since most car shippers will give cost estimates for free, but it’s smart as a consumer since it allows you to get an understanding of the price range and available services. Some companies will put in a higher bid than others, but they may offer single car enclosed auto transport whereas the cheaper option might be an open air, multi-car carrier. These are things you’ll need to consider and questions you should ask when assessing which company to choose to ship your car. Differences in pricing can often reflect a difference in service too, so be cautious about simply choosing the lowest offer you receive.
- Quality Service - When you’re searching for the right car carrier, there are a few signs you can look for that will help you identify a quality company. While most carriers are honest with their customers, the industry is still increasing regulation in order to crack down on companies that are operating without proper licensing, or worse, outright defrauding their customers. Here are some of the hallmarks of an experienced and trustworthy auto transport company:
- Open and enclosed carriers available
- Satellite tracking or real-time status updates
- Air ride suspension and modern carriers
- Member of EPA’s SmartWay program
- Free, no-obligation price quotes

- Disable Alarm - Disabling your car alarm or any theft-prevention devices is a standard part of the auto transport. While it may surprise some that disabling the antitheft system is required to ship a car, it can cause significant delays if an alarm goes off during transport and the driver has no way to deactivate it (you’ll also be charged an additional fee). You can imagine the chaos that would be caused if multiple cars on a carrier had alarms going off at the same time. For customers that are concerned that their car is in plain view while being shipped, we recommend enclosed car shipping. Shipping your vehicle in a fully enclosed carrier is a great way to protect it from bad weather or road hazards during transport, but it also offers a level of privacy that you just don’t get with a standard open air carrier.
