Tips for Finding a Quality Auto Transport Company
When you need to move to or from Palmetto, Florida, you will need to know what to look for when choosing a quality auto transport company. A-1 Auto Transport has put together a few tips to help you along the way:
- Compare Companies - Be sure to check prices and services with a few companies before making a decision. You may want enclosed transport where many only offer open air transport. Or, you may have a strict budget that you need to stick with and need to find a company that will work within the budget you set. Be sure to choose a company that not only offers fair competitive pricing, but one that also provides the services you’re looking for.
- Beware of Low Pricing - While saving money is nice, you need to watch out for companies that will offer price quotes that are well below the other companies. This is often done by companies that don’t use their own driver’s and once they have you agree to a price, they then need to find a driver willing to transport the car for a low amount. When this happens, you risk uncertified, unlicensed and uninsured transport. It may also take weeks before the company is able to actually locate a transport driver willing to work at the low rates they offer to customers.
- Insurance - Make sure the company that you’re interested in offers ample insurance coverage during transport. Most companies offer insurance that is based on the Kelly Blue Book price of the car. If your car is worth more than that, you will want to upgrade insurance or supply your own personal coverage during transport. Also, be sure to ask to see proof of insurance before you sign any paperwork or agree to transport.
