Safe And Reliable Tigard Car Shipping Services By A-1 Auto Transport
The City of Tigard was named for one of the prominent early families that settled in the area in the mid-1800s, prior to its development into a more thriving town with the growth around Main Street. Located just south of Beaverton in the Willamette Valley, Tigard was originally known as East Butte, then Tigardville before being recognized as the City of Tigard. It is the 12th largest city in the state of Oregon and is part of the Portland metropolitan area.

Using Tigard Vehicle Transport Companies
- Plan Ahead - Planning ahead is one of the easiest ways to save money when shipping a vehicle. By the same token, having to pay extra for express auto transport or a scheduling a last minute pickup is the surest way to overpay for the services you need. We recommend that our clients try to allow between 4 to 8 weeks between scheduling a car shipping appointment and the date the vehicle needs to be picked up. Of course, express shipping is an option, but it usually costs more due to the logistics of accommodating another vehicle. Plan ahead, give yourself time and try to have some flexibility with your pickup and delivery dates to maximize the amount of savings you have access to when shopping for a car shipping company.
- Using Review Sites - Technology has changed the way we approach services that we need. Not only is there tons of information available, but we now have unparalleled access to customer opinions, reviews, and rankings. Sites like Angie’s List, Yelp, and the Better Business Bureau all offer something that can help inform our decision and allow us to make the best choice. There is, however, a downside to these types of sites. Like any other online business, review sites exist to make a profit and have been known to alter results to fit their business needs--this includes all the sites mentioned above. Even the Better Business Bureau, for all the good things they do to help consumers--are guilty of using the “pay to play” model.
- Shop Around - There’s nothing preventing you from contacting 10 or even 20 different companies to get a cost estimate (which we give out for free). If you’ve given yourself enough time to do so, there’s really no limit to the number of auto transport companies you can contact to compare prices and services. Just be warned that cheaper isn’t always better and it’s advisable to speak to a company before agreeing to a contract or any services. There are, unfortunately, auto carriers that will do almost anything to get your business, including providing substandard services or unsafe transport to save a buck here and there. Make sure you do your research!
