Car Shipping Company

There are many choices when it comes to hiring a car shipping company.  First, its important for the company you are speaking with understands the reason you are shipping as car.  No body wakes up and says hey, I feel like shipping a car today.  Our account reps at Easy Auto Ship fully understand that everyone we speak with has a situation on their hands per say and it’s our job to ask the right question and understand the clients situation and how to solve it for them.  Maybe you are moving across country and you have two cars but can only drive one and need to ship the other one.  In that case its important that the car shipping company understands the timeline of when you are leaving town so that the car transport company works with your schedule for pick.  Also, it’s important to know when you will be at the destination end so that you are there before the car being shipped arrives.  The reason for this is that it’s important to do a vehicle inspection report on both pick up and drop off making sure the car is damage free.  If you do not do this, it’s very hard for the car shipping company to help you initiate an insurance claim for you with the carrier’s cargo insurance policy. When you hire a car shipping broker it is their job to make sure they hire a quality carrier to solve your situation at a fair price.  Easy Auto Ship not only makes sure the carriers we use have high safety ratings.  Another thing that Easy Auto Ship does is we require all carrier we dispatch out to add our company on their cargo insurance policy.  What this does is if any damage does happen during transit it allows us to initiate the claims process for our client against the carrier’s cargo insurance policy.  Another reason you may need to ship a car is that you just bought your dream car online from a long distance and need it shipped home.   With this situation its important that the car transport company understands when the vehicle is fully paid for and ready for pick up as well what type of carrier you want to ship with.  If this dream car is something that cost a lot or just very special to you then you may want to arrange enclosed car transport vs open air.  This will give your car the best protection against the outside elements as well as a much larger cargo insurance policy from the carrier.  Another advantage of arranging an enclosed car carrier is that generally those trucks have solid deck floors meaning there is no chance of a vehicle on the top deck leaking any fluids on the cars below them.  Again, a little more peace of mind with enclosed car carriers.  The only draw backs to enclosed car transport is that it can sometimes take a bit longer to pick it up as there are not as mean enclosed carriers as there are open air.  The second draw back is that it generally will cost 30-40% more than an open-air carrier.  But rest assured that little bit of extra money can be well worth the extra piece of mind when shipping your dream car to you.  One other thing with arranging an enclosed car transport vs open-air, it generally takes a bit longer of transit time due to not as many enclosed requests going from a-b.  This means the enclose car carrier will generally zig zag a bit more than going from one point to the next.  At the end of the day if you need to ship a car make sure the car shipping company you are getting a quote from covers all the above things with you and fully solves your situation.  We also recommend that you check the google and BBB ratings of any company you are getting a car shipping quote from.  The online reviews will give you good idea how that company operates and give you peace of mind you are choosing the right company
