“I don’t want to drive, how am I going to get my car from one state to another?” is a question often asked by people in the very beginnings of their auto shipping process. This may be the basis of a simple internet search, but then you are faced with literally thousands of search results all differing in their method of shipping the vehicle, various pricing, and hundreds of companies that claim to be the best in the industry. But a simple answer to the “How do I ship my vehicle?” question is this: you find an auto transporter, place an order, they will pick up your car, and deliver it wherever you want it delivered. Now this can vary based on the type of auto transporter you select. For example, some auto shipping companies strictly transport from terminal to terminal, meaning you will have to drop your vehicle off and pick it up from their facilities. Others will offer door to door services, pretty self explanatory but the truck will pick the vehicle up from the origin location and deliver it to the desired destination location. You will need to decide if you want to work with a broker or try to locate a driver by yourself. If you choose to go with a broker they will coordinate the move for you, eliminating the stress of finding a dependable driver. Regardless of the company you choose it is very important to do a search of previous reviews of their service; read up on customer reviews, their affiliation with the BBB, also check that they have proper authorization from the government to be in business. By taking advantage of quote websites such as Express Auto Transport Quotes, you can save time by comparing multiple prices and companies in one convenient location. If you follow these simple tips your auto transport will surely be a breeze!
