Using Rancho Cordova Auto Transport Services

  • Order Tracking – One of the technological advancements that have improved the auto transport industry is the implementation of satellite tracking. Many companies are now providing real time updates on the progress of your vehicle while it’s being moved. Most typically, these updates are sent via auto call or text message, through an online portal designed by the shipper, or through a smartphone app. Most auto shippers will offer some form of order tracking updates–some may even go so far as to give you the cell phone number of the driver moving your vehicle. If you have any concerns about being able to find out where your car is at any given time during the process of transport, make sure to ask about what they offer in terms of tracking systems and updates.

  • Options – You have some options when you hire a company to move your car and those options should be clearly explained, either on their website or when you speak to a representative over the phone. These options should include how the vehicle is transported, where it’s delivered, short-term storage and additional insurance. Almost every company will offer open and enclosed carriers; the main difference being that an enclosed carrier completely shields the car from any potential damages that can be caused by weather or road debris. Open air carriers leave the vehicle slightly more exposed, but damages are rare in either case. You should also have a choice between having the car delivered directly to an address, or to a nearby shipping terminal. (Transport to a terminal requires that the customer picks up the car at that location.) Storage and additional insurance coverage are extras that most carriers can provide, or can at least coordinate for you.
  • Receiving You Car – After the driver drops off your car, they will document and record the condition it arrived in to make sure it matches with the pre-shipping report. You (or an appointed representative) will need to be present when the car is delivered or picked up to sign the bill of lading, which is the primary document used in cargo transport. Once you’ve signed the bill of lading, that signifies that the vehicle has arrived without damages and that the delivery was made according to the terms of the contract. Obviously, you should carefully review the bill of lading before signing it, as well as make sure that there are no damages on the vehicle. (For the same reason, it’s a good idea to thoroughly document the car before pickup–pictures are recommended.) If you need to file a complaint and the information on the bill of lading doesn’t match your claim, you’ll have little recourse when it comes to getting compensated.
