The Benefits of Choosing an Auto Transport Broker

What's in this article?
  1. Brokers Utilize More Resources
  2. Brokers Aid More Small And Local Businesses
  3. Brokers Allow For Better Efficiency And Security
Transport Brokers Differ From Auto Transport Carriers

Most people are surprised to learn that auto transport brokers differ from auto transport carriers. Chances are when you book your auto transport online, you're going through a broker, who, in turn, arranges everything with a carrier. An auto transport broker though is far from a "middle man" in the process, as they provide numerous benefits that would not be possible by directly going through a carrier.

Brokers Utilize More Resources

Auto transport brokers are able to utilize a myriad of resources in auto transport that you would not be able to have access to. Since an auto transport brokers want to ensure that you're provided with the best service possible, they make sure to chose from the best carriers available. They have access to carrier reviews, as well as have some information as to the reputation of the particular carrier, information which is located in their own internal databases. For example, one of the things that a transport broker such as A-1 Auto Transport will do is only to chose a carrier that provides full cargo insurance.

They also are able to have access to the most common routes around your specified locations and, in turn, provide you with an affordable price and a quick delivery time.

Brokers Aid More Small and Local Businesses

Auto transport brokers often contact local carriers, many of which are small businesses. This means that the local wife-and-husband lead carrier, for example, will see more business. This benefits them and benefits the small community that they're located in. The more that small businesses benefit, the better for everyone involved, as it contributes to a thriving economy.

A good auto transport broker will provide repeat business to carriers that have proven themselves to provide effective service. By choosing an auto transport broker, you can be confident that your vehicle will be transported by a carrier that is both reliable and also a small, local business.

Brokers Allow For Better Security

Brokers Allow for Better Efficiency and Security

We already mentioned how auto transport brokers try their hardest to only chose carriers that are reliable, have stellar reputations, have cargo insurance, and have been in business for a long period of time. But what auto brokers also do is to choose carriers that will be able to ensure that your vehicle gets delivered as quickly as possible through a route that is personalized towards your own particular needs.

From a list of carriers that an auto broker has access to, they will be able to choose the one that can pick up your vehicle as soon as possible and the one that is located the closest to you. Otherwise, you could experience delays in having a carrier that may offer an attractive price, but is located far away or doesn't have the capacity to pick up your vehicle right away.

At A-1 Auto Transport, we make sure that every carrier has the full list of requirements and credentials that the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration ( requires!

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.
