Go for qualified transport companies
A good transport company walks the fine line balance between quality service and good rates. Check for professional qualifications and assess their ability to deliver as per contract. Also, consider the prices but do not compromise on the manner in which the transportation will be carried out. Reliable auto transport companies should strive to provide services that will be viewed as a return on investment by customers.
Book in advance
Booking international or local shipping services for car shipment should, and can, be done as early as possible. Starting early gives you a chance to get your vehicle shipped to the final destination within your preferred timeframe. Some shipping companies even offer incentives to customers that pay for their shipment early. Getting discounts saves you money without affecting the service offered on car shipping. However, if the amount of time available for transportation is limited, consider expedited (express) shipping which is effective but more expensive.
Understand delivery options
Typically, cars are delivered to the nearest terminal or unloaded at your driveway. These two options vary in terms of the benefits they offer vehicle owners. Terminal delivery is ideal for individuals that are on a budget and might not have a current address in the new location. At times, the car is stored at the facility of the company involved in shipping cars to or from port of Greater Baton Rouge which can increase costs. Alternatively, door to door delivery is convenient but pricey because of the time taken to reach your location and unloading done by the truck driver.
Be aware of payment options
Most companies that ship a vehicle from one location to another require payment upon delivery. To confirm, they request for a deposit and wait for pending payment after the truck driver has handed over the vehicle. Although some transport companies accept cash, consider paying through credit cards. This method of payment has a record that can be used in case of disputes in the future. Also, you can benefit from rewards often given by credit card companies to regular card users.
