When it comes to finding the right service and ensuring your car arrives at its destination, it is important to follow a few simple rules to make sure it is in good hands.
Decide on the Logistics
How you transport your car is dependent on where the car needs to be transported from and where it needs to go. If you are moving home and need your 1967 Falcon GT show car relocated across town, you could just as easily hire a trailer and tow it to your destination. For long distance commutes to an interstate motor show, you might want to consider finding more information about interstate vehicle transport and choose a reputable car carrier company to handle the entire process. There are a variety of car transport services out there, however some businesses will do a better job at taking care of your car than others.
Be Wise About Who you Choose
The best part of being in the automotive community is that you are surrounded by many like-minded people with the same passion. If you are faced with a specific dilemma, there would be plenty of people who are willing to offer you their opinion. When it comes to handing over the keys to a complete stranger and trust that it will be there at its destination can be difficult, so you would want to be sure you are comfortable with whom you choose. Doing background checks on the company, checking on company registration, professional accreditation and certificate as well as correct licenses is a start. Obtain insurance details and furthermore, read online reviews to see what past customers are saying.
Compare quotes and costs
Offcourse the total cost plays a role in the decision making process. The costs can vary week by week and is dependent on a number of variable factors. The size of the car, where it needs to be transported from and to, the condition of the car, the fuel price at the time and whether it needs to be moved in an open carrier or enclosed car carrier. When you have your quotes, compare each one along with the research you have done about each company. Beware of car shipping quotes that are significantly cheaper than others, using their services always tend to not end so well.
When you need it you can’t get it
Yes! We’re talking about insurance, it’s definitely a must. Insurance will protect your ride if anything is too go wrong, whether it is damaged, lost or stolen during transport. There are some auto transport companies that are licensed to sell you insurance for the move, ensure you check that the level of cover is suitable for your needs. If in doubt, find your own insurance provider that you trust and keep a record of the insurance contract and understand what is and isn’t covered.
