Take time to call the Hauler companies and make an informed decision based upon their reputation and the customer service skills over the phone. Definitely “Google” their name and see what other customers say about their experience with the Carriers company.
You may even want to call the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration hotline at (888) 368-7238. They can give you a brief history of license and insurance record; as well as any complaints have been made about the Hauler company. Whatever you do, seriously consider all your options.
Now lets talk about cost. You may be pleasantly surprised that that Shipping your vehicle is more affordable now than ever. A lot of factors go into your Trucking pricing; the origin and destination, vehicle size, the level of service desired, regional weather, gas prices, distance and time, to name a few.
It doesn’t take long to realize that your price varies from Carriers company to Carriers company. Make sure you do not fall into the trap that many people fall into – book the cheapest because it’s the cheapest. In this industry, price may not equal value. For example, there may be a reason why they are less expensive; they may cut corners on insurance other mandated paperwork and permits. It may not seem like $100-200 is a big deal, but in the unlikely event of an accident or damage to your vehicle during Transport, their lack of proper insurance or other permits can come back to haunt you…all to save a couple hundred dollars.
