  • Make sure the company of your choosing has a federal license to transport vehicles: This kind of certification is important to let you know that you can trust the company of your choosing when shipping your vehicle.
  • Inquire about the company’s ability to ship through various climate types: This is of particular importance if you are planning a cross country move and want to ensure that your drive has the skilled needed to drive through different elements while still keeping the cars transported safely.
