Using Pasadena Vehicle Transport Companies
- Brokers - It’s not unusual in the car shipping industry for a customer’s first contact with a company to be through a broker. Since companies that ship cars tend to busy coordinating delivery routes and handling the physical labor, they don’t always have time to find customers, which is where a broker or agent comes in. When a customer contacts a broker, they submit the information to a load board, where companies then offer their most competitive bid. While some customers prefer to deal directly with a carrier, a good agent can be extremely helpful when it comes to tracking down a reliable and affordable auto carrier.
Visit the Wikipedia page to learn more about auto transport agents, cargo brokers, freight forwarders and what role they play in the industry.
- Order Tracking - A good indicator of the quality of an auto shipper is the type of order tracking they offer when moving your car. Several years ago, order tracking meant getting a phone call from the driver and receiving an update. With the development of technology and its implementation in the trucking industry, a phone call is no longer necessary (though still an option). Most companies at this point - at least those with more modern carriers - have some sort of GPS tracking available that allows customers to get real-time updates on their phone or home computer. If a company’s method for order tracking isn’t mentioned on their website, it’s a good idea to ask about it!
- Discounts - Many customers qualify for discount programs offered by auto shipping companies. Some common price breaks are for students, seniors, members of the military, overseas travelers, snowbirds, and customers that book their shipping online. Being an AAA member also has its benefits when having a vehicle shipped as many companies have a discount program affiliated with them. If you know that you’re going to need round trip auto transport, you can also save money by booking both ends of the trip at the same time - an especially good option for seasonal vacations or a temporary stay in another country.
