Using Pontiac Vehicle Transport Companies
- Get It In Writing - It’s a good practice to contact several companies before deciding on which one to hire to ship your car. Typically, getting a price quote involves submitting some basic information (see our form to the right) and an auto hauler gives a cost estimate based on the information. This can be done several times over with different companies. One thing you should make sure of, however, is that you don’t make any payment or agree to any service before getting the contract in writing. Make sure you read the contract and fully understand the terms before making any type payment or putting down a deposit.
- Services - Knowing what type of services you need will help you in searching for an auto shipper. The first thing you should consider is whether your vehicle can be moved in the standard fashion: on an open truck with several other vehicles, referred to as open air car shipping. If you prefer more security and individual attention for your vehicle, you can also have it moved on a smaller, enclosed carrier, sometimes even on its own. This method is called enclosed auto transport. The other major consideration is where the vehicle is being delivered: to a specific location or to a delivery terminal. Shipping a car to an exact location costs more, while terminal delivery requires the customer to arrange for pick up of the car.
- Bill of Lading - A bill of lading is a document that specifies the details of a cargo shipment. In the case of having a car shipped, this acts as your invoice and contract so it’s important to look it over carefully. If for any reason, you need to seek compensation because of damages during shipping, the bill of lading will be the primary document to resolve any dispute. Make sure that the information listed is accurate and that you understand all the details!
