Tips on Choosing a Car Hauling Company, Reliability, Inssurance, Cost

People use car delivery companies for several reasons. Car buyers can get a great deal from an online auction on a car 3,000 miles away if they have a car hauling company to rely on. Retirees would rather fly than drive south for the winter, but they still need to drive when they get there. Then there are luxury and classic car owners with cars that are simply too valuable to risk driving long distances. Especially with expensive cars, choosing a reliable car hauling company is important. By looking for a few key elements, you can be sure to choose a company that will take great care of your vehicle.

First off, reliability is important. This means you want to know how long the company has been in business under its current name. Ask if the company ever did business under any other name. Go online and search for customer feedback on the shipping company under current and past names. Be wary of any company that repeatedly turns up with negative comments.

Insurance is important when choosing an enclosed transport carrier too. Be sure the company is bonded and insured. Check that they carry insurance for any damage to your car from shipping. When you ask if the carrier has insurance, ask what kind and how much and get a copy of the insurance certificate verifying coverage.

Car shipping pricing should be your last concern when choosing a company. While affordability is important, it is much more important that your car reach its destination undamaged and on time.
