When you’re searching for the right auto transport companies to ship your vehicle, and you’re looking online for them, chances are you’re not going to find carriers – and that’s a good thing, because what you really want are the brokers. Brokers are companies that will facilitate your transport with a carrier – they’ll do all the legwork, allowing you peace of mind as they work for you to get your vehicle picked up in a timely fashion.
But then again, you don’t want just any broker to move your car. You want to speak to upstanding, dependable auto transport brokers, and this is where the search comes in. There are thousands of different shipping companies out there, and not all of them are as reliable as others. And it usually comes down to the details, the small things that people don’t really think about. Dependable auto transport brokers will be up front with you about their prices; they’ll tell you why it is that your price is what it is, and they’ll explain why it has to be that way. They’ll price it right according to the information you provide – price it to where it will be picked up within a few days, not a few weeks. Brokers that are less reliable will try and sell you with a low quote, then turn around and say that you need to pay more to the carrier if you want your vehicle picked up.
Some dependable auto transport brokers can make mistakes in their pricing, of course. With brokers, they’re trying to get your car shipped, but they’re competing against other brokers and the carriers are competing with other carriers. And in the course of this type of cutthroat business, sometimes brokers can undercut each other, sometimes carriers can undercut each other…and other times it’s about who’s paying the most. Most of the time in the auto transport industry, it’s about who’s paying the most.
So when it comes right down to it, dependable auto transport brokers will quote your shipment right, and undependable ones won’t, though there are of course exceptions. Your best bet in terms of avoiding finding the wrong company is to get a bunch of quotes from a bunch of different shippers and then comparing their prices. Don’t go with the lowest, don’t go with the highest, but pick one that you find right in the middle that you feel would do a good job transporting your car.
