How To Ship Your Purvis Eureka
Australian sports car Purvis Eureka was only ever produced between 1974 and 1991, but the fact that it remains one of the most sought after classic sports cars in the world speaks volumes of its position among vehicles of that era. To ship such a car long distance requires skill and expertise that the typical auto transport company will likely not possess.
Only companies with a strong reputation can be trusted with such a high-quality vehicle. Determining the reputation of a company can be difficult, especially for an individual who has not dealt with the industry long enough. Here are some pointers on how to choose a reliable company with a strong reputation;
Do not simply take their word for it on the first search. Many auto shipment companies claim to offers services they cannot necessarily be able to deliver on. When looking to make a choice, therefore, it is advisable to take your time and compare. Shop around a little. Have about three companies in your shortlist and make comparisons depending on their prices and the services they offer.
A look into the past of a company can be an important indicator of the service they will offer once they are hired for the automobile shipping job. The internet provides useful tools one can use to gauge the reputation of companies they wish to do business with. Online review forums are full of information about the experiences of past customers at the hands of the car transport company. Websites like the better business bureau can be very helpful in providing helpful information regarding the reputations of companies. The better business bureau has information going back as far as three years.
Word of mouth
Another particularly useful way of finding a reliable company is to ask around from trusted friends or acquaintances. Find those friends who have had their cars shipped before, and ask them such questions as how much does it cost? What were their experiences? Are there any companies they would recommend for you to avoid?
Choose a company that offers different options. The typical shipping company will likely have two types of car transport services, open and enclosed carrier auto transport services. While these options are basic, choosing a company with the capability to offer much more than this might be helpful. Go for the company that offers more than just interstate car transport, but one that can, and has shipped to or from international locations. Choose a company that gives its clients the choice among air, freight and rail options, apart from the standard road based auto transport.
Other options normally involve pickup and delivery. In the door to door option, the car is picked up at the source and ferried all the way cross country to the new destination. Terminal based pickup and delivery involve the owner of the vehicle dropping the car at a company terminal. From there, the company has the car shipped to another terminal near the destination, from where the owner picks up the car again.
