Q & A for auto movers

  • How to locate a good auto shipping company?
    To find a good and reliable auto shipping company you could consult the internet, the Yellow Pages or local news paper advertisements. The other way is to get referrals from your friends and colleagues who have shipped their vehicle recently. The internet offers you a wide choice and there are some companies who put you in contact with several other car shippers so that you could obtain comparable car moving quotes. 

  • What are the most important aspects of an auto mover that I should look for?
    The first thing you need to look at is whether the moving company is registered with the US Department of Transport (DOT). Being a member would automatically ensure that the moving company will abide by its safety and security parameters. The second aspect to look for is the company’s business records and complaint handling records with Better Business Bureau.

  • What are the factors which influence the cost of moving a vehicle?
    There are several factors which influence the cost of moving a vehicle. Some of them include:
    - If you are particular about the pick up and deliver dates of the vehicles.
    - The number of vehicles you would be relocating.
    - The size of the vehicle – bigger vehicles like SUVs and pick-up trucks cost more.
    - Whether you opt for door-to-door or terminal-to-terminal pick-up and delivery.

  • What kind of time scheduling should I do for moving my vehicle?
    Planning is critical in any relocation. You should give the transport company a minimum of two weeks’ time for arranging the pick-up. Some companies have arrangements for immediate pick-up, at an additional fee. The more time you give to the car moving company, the more assured you are that the car will be picked up at the scheduled date and time.

  • What kind of pick-up arrangements should I choose?
    You have two options for the pick-up and delivery of your vehicle. The first is door-to-door, which as the name suggests, involve the car picked up from your doorstep and also delivered at your new destination, at the door step. Though extremely convenient, this option is more costly than the second option, terminal-to-terminal. In the second option you drop your car at the nearest car terminal of the carrier company and also pick it up from their own terminal at the new city.
