How to Ship My Van?

If you are in need of a company to ship your van, whether it be across town or across the country, then you will need to enlist the help of a reputable auto transport company. Finding a company may seem easy because there are easily hundreds, if not thousands, of options available.

Unfortunately, the auto transport industry is known to be full of companies using shady business practices, so a consumer must exercise extreme caution when seeking this service. To find a good fit for you and your van, the Internet can be a great resource and tool. Just make sure to follow these do’s and don’ts and you will be on the fast track to shipping your van in no time at all.

Do's and Don't of Shipping a Van

Do…start your research well in advance of when you need your van shipped.

Waiting until the last minute will put undue stress on yourself and possibly lead you to make poor decisions when selecting a company. The more time you have to prepare, the better, but if you do need to make a quick decision, make sure you are using common sense before committing.

Don’t…be overwhelmed by the high prices of auto transport.

In most situations, the benefit definitely is worth the high price. You will save so much wear and tear on your van, in addition to your own valuable time driving it from point A to point B. Although the initial quotes may be shocking to some, it is extremely important to look at the bigger picture when determining a need for transport.

Do…check references and look at online reviews.

The absolute best situation is to obtain a word-of-mouth referral from a trusted confidante who has previous experience working with a particular company. Unfortunately, many people do not have access to such a resource, in which case it is so important to find a company that looks good on paper, or in this case, online. Yelp and Better Business Bureau are both great places to check in order to ensure the company you are considering is indeed reputable.

Don’t…commit to the first company you contact.

It is so extremely important to shop around, but you will find that many transport companies will push a hard sale on you and want you to commit upon the first contact. Not only is this a bad idea, but you will most likely be taken advantage of if you fall into this trap. Compare a handful of companies at minimum before selecting the best one for your personal situation.

Do…be patient during the transport process.

Most companies will give you a wide range of both pick-up dates and delivery drop-off times because they recognize there are a variety of factors that can delay transport. You may be one of the lucky ones that have everything go right on schedule, but if you’re not, do not stress. As long as you chose your company wisely, they will keep you up to the date of any delays, and you can relax knowing that your van is in good hands, even if the process takes longer than anticipated.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★ choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

You have my full support and recommendation!

A1 Auto Transport... From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
