Using Shoreline, WA Auto Transport Services
Coast To Coast Transport - Not all shippers can move a car from one coast to the other. When you’re looking for a company to ship your car, make sure that they not only move vehicles to the area you need shipping but also that they have ample experience in that city or region. If you look at the directory in the section below, you’ll notice that companies like Selland Auto Transport work mainly on the West Coast, whereas others like Interbay Transport ship to every U.S. state and regularly move cars from coast to coast. Working with an auto shipper that has offices in the cities you’re shipping to and from can be very helpful, especially if any issues arise, or you need to arrange for short-term storage before picking up your vehicle.
Do you know the difference between an auto transport carrier and a broker? This resource from our information center explains the details and what you need to know.
Placing Your Deposit - It’s common for car shippers to request a small deposit from customers in order to hold their spot on the transport carrier. The deposit should only be a small portion of the total cost of shipping-be very cautious of companies that request a large upfront payment. Once the contract is signed and everything is finalized, then you can be expected to pay a portion of the total, with the other end of the payment made on delivery. In most cases, the deposit is nonrefundable, which is why it can become a problem if you put down a large deposit only to have your plans change at the last minute. If you have any doubts about how payment works or what your responsibilities are as a customer, be sure to get a clear answer from the shipper you’re working with before moving forward.
Your Shipping Contract - The transport contract is the most important document in the auto transport industry. It includes all the details of your shipment, from the type of vehicle to its location and destination, to the terms and cost of the delivery. Do not sign anything before carefully looking over the terms and conditions! Similarly, you should also look over the bill of lading, which should include much of the same information, but will also have a vehicle condition report. The driver will look over your car at the time of pickup and note any existing damages on the bill of lading. Once you’ve signed off on this report, that’s an acknowledgment that all the information contained in it is accurate. When your car is delivered, the driver does another assessment for damages and the comparison between the two is how damages are compensated in the industry.
