Using Round Rock Vehicle Transport Companies
Brokers & Carriers – When you search on the internet for companies that move cars, you’ll come across some that are carriers, some that are brokers, and some that are both. This can be a little confusing. Many of the websites you’ll find are for brokers who take your request and then try to find a carrier to move the car for you within the timeframe, price range and service options you’ve requested. While this process does create a sort of “middle man,” it doesn’t add to the cost of shipping a car. In fact, a good broker can sometimes save you money depending on how established they are in the industry and how many carriers they have contact with. Some customers may prefer to work directly with the carrier, in which case you should ask if they are a carrier or broker.
Considering buying a car at an auction? This article from Edmunds, written by an auto auctioneer, has some helpful tips on how to get the best bang for your buck.
Questions To Ask – Knowing the right questions to ask the carrier can be really helpful in determining which company and service to choose. Here are some questions you should ask, and what type of answer you’re looking for:
- Is insurance included? The answer should be yes, it’s included in the price and they should be willing to provide proof of insurance if asked.
- Are you a carrier or broker? See the tip above to understand the difference between the two. This one is a matter of customer preference.
- What is your US DOT#? Both carriers and brokers have a license number issued by the U.S. Department of Transportation that you can use to look them up.
- Do you require a deposit? A small deposit is not unusual, but it should be only a portion of the total cost.
Preparing Your Vehicle – Before the carrier arrives to inspect and load your vehicle onto the transport truck, there are a few things you’ll need to do in preparation. This short checklist covers the essentials:
- Run the gas tank down to less than 1/4 of a tank
- Clean the vehicle, inside and out
- Remove any personal items
- Disable any alarms or antitheft systems
- Remove any nonpermanent accessories or modifications
- Check fluids and tire pressure
- Non-running vehicles will carry an extra cost
- Provide the driver with a set of keys
- Get a copy of the bill of lading
