Why You Should Use an Auto Transport Broker
There are a lot of cars shipped every year. Hundreds of thousands, actually. Some of the autos that are transported arrive safely and some end up as insurance claims. How do you find a reliable, safe auto transport carrier? By using a great auto transport broker, of course!
One auto transport broker can give a quote that is very similar to one from another auto transport broker. Most of the time, there is a fairly good reason for this. There are certain costs associated with auto transport and a good auto transport broker will give a quote that takes all those variables into consideration. A great quote is one that is makes both the customer (you) and the carrier happy. You’ll be happy because you got a great price & the carrier will be happy because he’ll be able to make money after paying for all of his expenses.
Some auto transport brokers just try to give you the lowest quote they can to get your business. This is called “low-balling” and it’s usually a dangerous sign. How could a lower price for moving a car be a bad thing you ask? I’ll tell you. When a carrier gives you an auto transport quote that seems too good to be true it usually is (as the saying goes). This can be indicative of one or more of a few things. The auto transport broker…
- doesn’t have the proper expertise to properly ship your vehicle,
- has a history of bidding for low quality carriers who deliver vehicles in an untimely manner, if at all,
- doesn’t have a Master Carrier license number and, as such, isn’t qualified to ship your vehicle,
- has a bad reputation and has difficulty getting loads picked up from carriers because they know he won’t pay them enough.
While agreeing to an auto transport quote from the highest bidder doesn’t guarantee you’ll have a great experience, it dramatically increases your chances of not getting burned. But how can you get a good price and get great service? By using a high quality auto transport broker!
