Safe and Reliable Russellville Car Shipping Services By A-1 Auto Transport
Russellville is the seat of Franklin County. Just like most in Alabama, the city’s history is tied with the Civil War. It was actually the route that Andrew Jackson’s men took going to New Orleans from Nashville. The name derived itself from Maj. William Russell who was instrumental in building the military road. Today, around 10,000 people are living in about 14-square mile of territory that calls itself Russellville.
Should I Give a Deposit When Shipping My Car to Russellville?
Before anything else, you should know that there are two types of auto transport operators: the brokers and the carriers. Although they provide essentially the same service—which is to get your car from point A to point B—they don’t have the same assets. Brokers take your business and outsource the job to other carriers. Carriers, meanwhile, have the fleet to deliver your car to the next destination.
But back to the question: should you give a deposit to the auto transport company? As a general rule, carriers don’t collect a deposit when they accept your business. The typical procedure is to deliver your car first, and once you ascertain that there’s no damage to your car, you will then pay the agreed upon price. Simply put, when there’s damage, you can file a claim from the service provider which will then repair any dent, scratch or cracks that are not there before the transport.
This type of arrangement benefits the consumer considering that the auto transport service provider assumes all the risks. After all, the customer can just refuse to pay if the car sustains any kind of damage, right?
This is why you should be cautious if the company will ask for money upfront before supposedly delivering your car. They might still be able to deliver the car but there’s a big chance you might not be able to get back your deposit. In the end, you may pay over and above the agreed deposit.
