Using Redding Auto Transport Services
- Why Not Drive? - The cost of hiring a company to ship your car may be prohibitive for a lot of customers, especially when compared to the cost of gas and driving it yourself. While it’s always good to do a cost comparison when considering your options, many people fail to realize the actual cost of driving is probably higher than expected. If you need a car moved a long distance or across the country, you need to look carefully at how much it costs in terms of not just gas, but your time, food, lodging and potential maintenance issues. AAA estimates the average cost per mile for driving a vehicle to be between 50 and 80 cents per mile, putting it around the same price range as an auto transporter.
- Carriers - There are two different types of companies you’ll come in contact with when seeking out cost estimates for shipping your car. The first is the auto carrier or transporter. This is the person or company who physically loads, transports and delivers your vehicle. Carriers are typically the ones that own the trucks and trailers that are used in the transport industry. Some customers may prefer to work directly with a carrier, but they’re not always easy to track down because their main operational focus is on delivery routes and the transport side. Because of this, many auto carriers don’t have the staffing or resources to maintain a customer service department or, in some cases, even a website.
- Brokers - Brokers, sometimes called freight forwarders, are companies that organize transport between the customer and the carrier. As mentioned above, this is a necessity for a lot of auto carriers in the industry since they don’t have the time to devote their own staff to finding customers and ensuring delivery trucks are full before departure. Brokers have access to load boards when they can post customer requests that are then filled or bid on by a carrier. Some brokers may partner with a small number of trusted carriers in their area, while others have a broader reach and provide better options for customers looking to save money when shipping a vehicle.
