Using Whittier Vehicle Transport Companies
- Web Searches For Shippers - If you’ve just started your search for a car shipping company in Whittier by looking online, you may be surprised at what you find. Not only are there a multitude of options, but they all seem to offer more or less the same thing. Some companies may even have the same type of simple website that is all too common in the industry: a basic form asking for your information and nothing else. You should avoid companies with websites like these. They’re set up exclusively to collect your information and nothing more. If their website doesn’t include an explanation of services, offer some helpful information or have a blog that gets updated regularly, they’re probably just throwing up a website and hoping for the best.
You can view our latest blog posts here for information and trends about the auto industry and more tips for customers that need a vehicle shipped.
- Transport Company Reviews - You should be cautious of any customer reviews or testimonials you find on car shipping websites. While it’s common practice for companies to display their top customer reviews to put their best foot forward, some take advantage of the system. Companies do this in a number of ways, usually by making up their own “customer reviews” or by manipulating popular review sites with phony accounts. Even the most popular review site in the car shipping industry, Transport Reviews, has varying levels of support that companies can pay to post their reviews higher--the cost ranges from $600 to $3,000 per year for this.
Here are 6 ways to tell if an online review is legitimate or placed by the company to help boost their own ratings on consumer review sites.
- Company Snapshot - Given the cautionary nature of our first two tips to finding a good auto transport company, you may be asking yourself, “Where can I find accurate information?” It’s a fair question and one we have the answer for. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, which is a part of the U.S. Department of Transportation, is the regulatory body that oversees the industry. Their website has a feature that allows you to look up company history and check on the licensing status, safety rating and inspection information. The best way to research a company using this tool is with their USDOT# or MC/MX#, which are licensing numbers issued to motor carriers.
