Using San Marcos Vehicle Transport Companies
- Get It In Writing - If you’re offered an estimate from a company and you feel good about their services and pricing, ask them to send you the information in writing. While researching companies, it’s a good idea to keep a notebook of which companies you contact, as well as records and pricing information that they send you. No matter what a car shipper may tell you over the phone, it doesn’t matter if it’s not included on the contract to move your car. For this reason, it’s important to look over the contract very carefully and make sure that the terms of the shipment match with your expectations.
- Motorcycle Transport - Most companies that will ship a car are also capable of transporting motorcycles. In fact, you may be surprised to find that the smaller size and weight of a motorcycle make it relatively affordable to hire a company to ship it to you. When you ship a bike, you will generally have two options. The first is a trailer similar to what you may have seen on the highway hauling cars to an auto dealership or showroom. The difference, of course, is that the trailers are designed specifically to haul motorcycles and two wheeled vehicles. The other option is crating or palletizing the bike, which means it’s secured to a wooden pallet (and enclosed in the case of crating) before being shipped.

- Moving Services - Many customers that contact us to ship a car are doing it for a specific reason: they’re moving to a new city. Naturally, this means that there are plenty of customers out that need home moving and auto shipping services at the same time. Most auto shipping companies partner with moving services to accommodate such requests and combining both services under one contract can be an excellent cost saving measure. In some cases, you may even be able to find a company that handles both car shipping and home moving, making it easier than dealing with two separate businesses. (Storage services can also be arranged in tandem with car shipping and home moving.)
