Using Norfolk Vehicle Transport Companies
- Motor Carrier # - The easiest way to get accurate information about a company that hauls any type of cargo is their MC#, which is issued by the U.S. Department of Transportation. Using this, you can look up specific safety information, complaint history and whether or not a company is a broker or an auto carrier. Alternatively, you can use the USDOT number issued by the department. Companies can be looked up using either number on the Company Snapshot lookup through the FMCSA website.
- Cost Factors - There are many things that influence the total cost of shipping a vehicle. The two main factors are the type of vehicle and the destination point. Obviously, it will cost more to ship a car from Norfolk to Los Angeles than it will from Norfolk to Miami. Other considerations are the delivery time, type of carrier used, insurance and import duties if shipping a car internationally.
- GPS Tracking - Many auto transport companies are now starting to offer satellite tracking on their vehicle deliveries, which means that customers have access to real-time status updates every step of the way. Some car carriers even offer direct communication with the driver, which is a lot easier and quicker than having to go through a dispatch center or wait for a callback. It is highly recommended that you find a carrier that offers GPS tracking if you’re having a valuable, high-end or luxury vehicle shipped to or from Norfolk.

Auto Transport Safety Measures in Norfolk
If you'd like to protect your vehicle from flying objects, from birds, or from bad weather while it's being transported, then an enclosed carrier is recommended. Open trucks offer some degree of safety but nowhere near as complete as what enclosed trailers provide.
If you're bringing a vehicle from another continent, then a container is the best way to keep it safe. Many people opt for the RoRo method because it's convenient and cheaper. However, it also puts vehicles at risks of hitting into each other. Only by strapping it securely and placing it in a separate container can you ensure your car will be safe.
