Using Tinley Park Vehicle Transport Companies
Research Companies - The first step you can take to alleviate the confusion of hiring an auto shipper is picking out a few companies that you find (online, through recommendations, or in the local phonebook) to find some that you feel comfortable with. It’s best to choose 4 or 5 so that you can eliminate the ones that don’t fit your expectations or don’t offer the services you need. By far, the best resource available online to research carriers and brokers is the Company Snapshot feature from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. It includes information about company performance, safety records, licensing and insurance. Any other resources, even popular customer review and consumer websites, should be taken with a grain of salt.
Review Offers - There are also some precautionary measures you should take when reviewing price estimates you’ve received form car shippers. Be very cautious of the “lowball” estimates provided by some companies that are significantly lower than the others. Everyone wants to save money, but the notion that “you get what you par for” is particularly true in the transport industry. It’s to be expected that there will be some variance on price between different companies because of fuel costs, shipping routes, and service fees, but there should be some consistency in the price range too. If four companies give you estimates that are within $150 of each other and the fifth undercuts them all by several hundred dollars, that’s probably a bad sign. Carriers that use these tactics generally will find another way to recoup the costs of the service along the way, either through administrative fees or unnecessary delays that increase the cost of their service.
