Using Midland Auto Transport Services
- Internet Searches - If you’ve started your research online, you might be a little taken aback by the number of companies that come up. In the car shipping industry, companies can be a carrier, broker, or freight forwarder and, in some cases, all three. It can be difficult telling them apart, but here’s a simple breakdown. Carriers are the ones who load your car onto the carrier and drive it to the requested location. Brokers operate as a sort of middleman between the customer and carrier, arranging transport between the two parties. A freight forwarder operates in a similar capacity to a broker. Most of the companies you will find online are for brokers and freight forwarders since they are most often the one connecting customers with carriers.

- Accessories - Anything that is a non-permanent component of the vehicle you’re shipping should be removed and stored, if possible. This includes items like rear spoilers, luggage or bike racks, towing hitches, and specialized antennas to name a few. The basic rule of thumb for external accessories is that if they can be removed, they should be. The same goes for the inside of the vehicle, which should be clean and free of personal items. If you have a detachable stereo or GPS unit in your vehicle, those should be stored before it’s picked up. In general, it’s a good idea to keep the cargo to a minimum, especially with delicate electronics.
- Status Updates - Most car shippers will offer some form of a status update to customers, but the method may vary. For some companies, that may mean you’ll receive a phone call directly from the driver or an automated update via text message. You’ll even find some transport companies that provide real-time GPS updates on the status of your vehicle delivery. If you’re concerned about being able to quickly access the tracking information when shipping your car, be sure to ask which method the company uses. The same goes for getting the contact information of the driver.

Long Distance Auto Transport to/from Midland
There are quite a few important differences between short and long distance shipping. The driver will be on the road for a longer period of time if he has to travel between several states. He will need food and somewhere to sleep during the night. The journey can also be strenuous, so the frequency of breaks may increase.
If you’re driving your own car across such a distance, you’ll likely end up paying more than you planned for. Professional auto shipping services can do the same job at a similar, if not lower, price. To book your transport, call us now.
