Top 3 Reasons Why You Should Compare Car Shipping Companies
Top 3 Reasons Why You Should Compare Car Shipping Companies

A simple search about car shipping companies will pull out two kinds of results for you because the term can be used to refer actual car shipping companies that move your car from one place to another and the other kind being the brokers who get orders for such companies. Moreover, you will not be able to find out which is the best company and the most suitable services they have to offer you. So you will have to compare car shipping companies before you choose the best one and here is a small guide on how to go about it.

Car Shipping Broker Companies

These companies are the backbone of the car shipping industry and most of the times when you are enquiring and scrutinizing the market you will land up taking to a broker instead of a shipping company. Now, as unnecessary as it may seem, it actually pays to talk to them about your requirements, because they would search all over the country for you to get the companies that offer the services that you want and who will also be doing the same route on a regular basis. So choosing such broker companies will help you to save a lot of time but the main reason that you will compare car shipping companies is to save money.

Online Help    

There are many sites dedicated to helping you to find the best companies. Generally, most companies will be happy to give you an online quote and these websites will give you the best quotes from a number of sites. However, it is up to you to get the best in terms of rates and services. Most often, the quotes will be based on the cheapest form of transport and for a standard sized car.  So if you need special moving vehicles, that could cost you more and again, if your car is on the bigger side and is also expensive, then the cost will go even higher.

Advantages of Comparing Car Shipping Companies

  1. Selecting the type of service and shipping that you need - There is an advantage when you compare car shipping companies and that is getting quotes for all kinds of services and types of shipping as well. Some companies will take the trouble to give you detailed and informed information about shipping which will enable you to choose the right kind of shipping. For example, some might require an enclosed carrier while others can manage with open ones.
  2. Getting the best insurance - It is an open secret that companies give competitive rates for all their services and that includes insurance as well. So most companies will try to give the best kind of insurance and will not try to fleece you by giving you unnecessary deals.
  3. Complying with FMCSA and DOT regulations - All the companies are supposed to comply with FMCSA and DOT regulations as in http://www.fmcsa.dot.gov/regulations but the lay person will not know that. Also, there is the chance that there might be companies out there who go on working without bothering to get the necessary papers. However, in websites that deal with comparing companies, this will be a compulsory requisite that they should comply with. So you will have the added safety of knowing that you will be dealing with only standard companies who follow all the rules and regulations laid out by the government.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.
★★★★★

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
