Tracking Your Vehicle Once It Has Been Picked Up

Published by Joe Webster.

Tracking Your Vehicle Once It Has Been Picked Up

The internet and digital technology have made it possible to follow your vehicle after it has been picked up till it gets to its destination, provided that the auto shipping firm is using up-to-date tracking equipment. Yet several auto transport businesses have adopted cutting-edge tracking technology which has allowed them to offer faster more engaging service to their clientele. Some potential methods of tracking your car are as follows:

Pre-determined Times Or Locations - question about tracking - details and updates

GPS Tracking

The vast majority of auto transport carriers have GPS devices in their cars or vehicles. While this is mainly to help the driver with his or her routes, many modern auto transport companies provide a service to their customers where they are able to view this GPS location in real time.

However, because of the software and constant internet connectivity requirements of this, only some of the auto transport companies are providing this service as of now. The number who do though is rapidly growing. Within a few years, most will probably be offering it.

Check-in Points

Based on pre-determined times or locations, drivers will report where they are in the country directly to the auto transport company. If the route is quite short, this may not be necessary, but if you're shipping your vehicle a great distance, it can be useful for your own peace of mind.

Many companies will automatically provide you with an update via text, phone call, or e-mail within 24 to 48 hours. This usually occurs when the driver has stopped at either a rest area during the journey or a loading or unloading terminal (assuming he or she is transporting more than one vehicle).

Other companies may provide the status update via their website, in which you log-in and are able to view a page, similar to how FedEx or UPS does it with their orders.

Call or E-mail the Company

The companies that are not well run or do not provide much in the way of customer service will lead to you having to actually call or e-mail the company to get an update as to where your vehicle is. This can, of course, be a cumbersome process, and it's not something that you should have to deal with.

The Future of Tracking

In the future, the majority of auto transport companies should have a vehicle tracker as an app or on a portion of their website that allows you to log on and instantaneously track where your vehicle is from your smartphone, computer, or tablet. Unfortunately, not all transport companies have adopted this technology yet, but many are making efforts to do so. While tracking your vehicle is nice and convenient, the most important thing that you should look for in a company is their ability to provide reliable, safe service.

Do you still have questions about tracking your vehicle? Contact A-1 Auto Transport today and let us help you out with your needs! We promise outstanding customer service at every step of the process.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★ choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

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.
