Researching on transport companies
This is what a good background research should entail:
- Licensing and registration: The US government subjects all transport companies to stringent safety rules and registration requirements. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration is responsible for granting operating authority to these companies. In addition to an MC number, transport brokers must also have a Freight Broker Bond. Carrier companies should have valid MC and DOT numbers. Authenticate these numbers by running them against the FMCSA website.
- Experience: Find a company that is well versed with the uphill task of shipping cars to or from Smith County. Companies with more years of experience are well taught. They know their way around every challenge that they would find on the roads.
- Insurance: Vehicle transportation insurance is a mandatory precondition. Just like general auto insurance, there are different kinds of policies out there. Some of these have gaps that leave you exposed to potential losses should anything happen to your car. Always ask to read the transporter’s policy document before making any decisions. At times, your auto insurance policy may cover your car while in transit. Talk to your service provider to find out is this is the case.
- Customers: Use reviews to follow the trail of happy and unhappy customers. You will have an idea of what to expect from the company. The best way to get more information out of this is to find more detailed reviews and opinions.
