How To Ship Your Rolls-Royce

The thought of hitting the road with your Rolls-Royce might be appealing, but on a practical level, such long distance travel might not be a good idea. The next best option, then, is to look for a reliable car shipment company. Having a professional auto carrier is a convenient alternative to the having to drive cross country. But how exactly does one choose the right company in such a flooded market. With this guide, finding the right car transport company will be easy.

Before choosing, it is important to know exactly what one is looking for. Are you looking to ship to or from an overseas location, or is it domestic shipment? Are you shipping to yourself or is the shipment to another individual. It is important to understand the logistics of the shipment before setting the process in motion.

Price comparison

When choosing a reliable shipping company, compare the prices in the market. Look at trusted websites that show the most competitive rates in the market and make the comparisons with your budget. The internet is a useful tool and can enable one to either compare prices or list their shipment and allow competitive bids to be made by the shipping companies. Our company offers some of the most competitive prices in the industry. We can also make additional special arrangements with clients depending on their budget.


Another important aspect of choosing a car shipping company, or any other service provider for that matter, is to check the opinions of past customers. Again, the internet can be a great tool for this, a great source of customer opinions and honest reviews. Check especially with the Better Business Bureau before committing to the company. The BBB, as it is known by many, has reviews up to a year old, and shows how well the company deals with them after they arise. Our company prides itself on a good reputation in all we do. We make customer satisfaction our number one priority and make sure we deliver on our promises.


The biggest reliability test for any company is their papers. It is always prudent to check the truth in their advertisement claims. For instance, the USDOT requires every company to have insurance while operating within the automobile transport business. The typical industry standard of insurance is 50,000 per vehicle, but some companies might have lower values. Most of the time, though, one will always find that companies tend to announce that vehicles are fully insured. Before taking their word for it, ask for proof of the insurance amount and understand the level of liability they will take on. We are always truthful with our customers, and all our claims can safely be backed up with evidence.


Our company is one of the most diverse in the market. whether one is looking for open or enclosed shipping, domestic or overseas shipping, terminal based or door-to-door pick-up and delivery, our company can offer that and so much more. We also offer freight, land, sea and train transport. We believe a company should be able to offer as many options to their clients as possible.
