Using Palm Coast Vehicle Transport Companies
- USDOT & MC # - One thing you should ask any transport company you contact is for their USDOT# and if they have an MC#. Using either of these, you look up information about the company and find out about their safety rating, a number of vehicles and drivers they have, their out-of-service rate, and what the status of their operating authority is. This information essentially tells you whether the company has any violations on their record (out-of-service rate) and if they have an active operating authority to act as a cargo carrier. You can also find out if you’re dealing with a broker or freight forwarder, which act as a sort of “middle men” in the industry, or if you’re dealing directly with the company that will be moving your vehicle.
- Brokers - In the car shipping business, brokers play a significant role, both on behalf of customers and auto carriers. Due to the nature of the work, companies that operate trucks and carriers often don’t have the time or staff to invest in finding customers, which is where brokers and freight forwarders come in. Some companies may act as both a broker and carrier, taking the requests they can handle and handing off other shipments to a transporter that’s better equipped to do the job. If you prefer to deal directly with the carrier and not go through a broker, the information in the first tip (see above) is the best way to tell the difference. The advantage of dealing with a broker is that they have access to load boards where they can place your order and have multiple companies bid on the contract to get the best price.

- Carrier Type - There are two types of carriers that are used car shipping: open and enclosed. Open air trucks are the most common and the bulk of auto transport takes place on these large, multi-car carriers. Open air vehicle shipping is the cheapest option for overland transport. Enclosed carriers are typically only used for high value, classic, luxury, vintage or exotic cars. The advantage of enclosed car shipping is that the vehicle is completely shielded from bad weather conditions, road hazards and debris; not to mention the added degree of privacy that enclosed carriers provide.
