Using Suffolk, Virginia Vehicle Transport Companies
Comparing Prices - Getting an auto transport quote is now easier than ever thanks to the number of companies that provide free, no obligation price quotes. Since there’s no limit on the number of estimates a customer can get, you can invest as much or as little time as you like in finding an affordable option. Most auto shippers will offer free estimates over the phone or with an online request form like the one you see at the top right of this page. With just some basic information, you can contact several companies, get a cost estimate and compare them on the basis of their services and delivery times. It’s recommended that you contact at least three to five car shippers before deciding on which one to use. This way, you’ll be able to get an idea of the price range, as well as the options you have when shipping a car to or from the Suffolk area.

Coast To Coast Transport - When you need a car moved locally or regionally, the process of finding a shipper is relatively easy. You can simply look up local companies using the phone book or a directory like the one at the bottom of this page and find a number of reasonably priced options in the area. This works fine if you need a vehicle shipped across the state or to another location on the East Coast. If you need a car shipped across the country to the West Coast, however, there are some things you should look for. Not every auto shipping company offers nationwide service and some will be better equipped to handle the job than others.
Get It In Writing - Before agreeing to any service, verbally or otherwise, make sure you get the contract in writing and carefully review all the details. Most shippers will be willing to fax or email you a copy of the service contract so you can verify all the information and make sure it matches your expectations. If for any reason, a company is unwilling to do this or tries to arrange services or payment without first sending you a copy of the contract, you should take your business elsewhere. Any questions you have about the shipment, delivery timeframe, pricing issues or other aspects of the transport process should be promptly addressed by the company you’re considering. When you book a carrier to move your car, it’s not unusual for a small deposit to be requested by the company, but it should only be a small portion of the total cost. The deposit is usually just to hold your place on the transport carrier and should not represent a significant portion of the total.
