Choosing The Best Car Shipping Company
When you are attempting to ship your automobile to another city, state or country, one of the first things you should consider is hiring a car shipping company that best fits your need. There are so many vehicle transporters and shipping companies out there and here are some tips in choosing which one to hire.
Tip 1: Keep in mind of the competition. Hire a car shipping company that is willing to compete fairly with other vehicle transporters. Simply put, don’t hire a company that lowers price so much that it hurts the industry. You may think you are getting a good bargain by hiring the cheapest transporter around but you should worry about the quality of service they provide. A company that cuts prices so much means they don’t mind sacrificing something in return. Perhaps they use machines or carriers that are below industry standards or hire unauthorized drivers or transporters. In the end, you pay more than you’ve bargained for.
Tip 2: Go for the lowest price by checking out industry standards. You will notice as you surf around for the most reasonable shipping price that almost all shipping websites offer to give free online quotes. The mean average of these quotes gives you a good understanding of the industry standard. It is best that you get around 5 or more car shipping quotations from different shipping companies. These are for free, anyway. Compare these quotations along with the services they offer and from there you can choose which one is best for you. See which car shipping company can offer the best service in the shortest possible time at the most reasonable price.
Tip 3: People encounter. While the Internet is very helpful in providing you with so many contacts and information regarding car shipping, contracts and deals are still best settled with smiles and handshakes. You could send “Smiley logos” through email but these don’t compare to seeing someone give you a big smile for real. After scouting for the best car shipping company over the worldwide web, it is time that you pay them a personal visit. See the people to whom you will entrust your most prized possession. See how they dress and how they treat their customers and themselves. If you feel comfortable spending some time with them, it means you can be comfortable doing business with them as well, and handing them the keys to your car.
Tip 4: Authority check. As you visit the car shipping company office, it is your right to ask them of any proof of their business legitimacy. Don’t be afraid that you might offend them by asking. The really good companies will offer to you their authorization or certification numbers and documents even before you ask. If they hesitate a bit in satisfying your inquiry, you might doubt that they are being true to you. You can also ask for reviews and testimonials from their past customers.
Don’t be afraid to ask because, in the first place, you are the one paying them and giving over your car to their care. For a few hours or days (depending on how far away you are shipping your vehicle), these people own your car. It is very important to know that they are legally authorized to do what you are paying them to do.
