Shipping a Car to Whitefish
Tips from A-1 Auto Transport to keep in mind when you are booking auto transport:
- Many auto transport companies have GPS or satellite tracking available and you will be able to keep track of your vehicle location during shipment. Be sure to ask up front if the company offers this service. Companies that do have tracking available will generally have well-maintained, modern trucks and technology.
- Check with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) website to make sure the company you want to hire is licensed, insured and registered with the Department of Transportation as required by law.
- Make sure to ask the company what amount of insurance coverage they have for auto transport. Amounts will vary from one company to the next and you need to know that the amount is sufficient for your personal vehicle.
- If you are trying to keep shipping expenses down, ask the company if they can ship terminal to terminal instead of door to door unless you specifically need door to door. Terminal shipping is often less expensive than door to door pickup and delivery. If they do offer this service, make sure the terminal is not too far away as you may find yourself driving for hundreds of miles to access a terminal.
