Car Shipping Quote

The cost of car shipping differs from quote to quote. Some car shipping companies require payment in advance while others require payment upon completion of their car shipping contract. Those car shipping companies that require a contract deposit will typically require certified funds from a Bank or request you pay in cash. If you pay by credit card for car shipping you may be required to pay an additional surcharge fee for credit card processing. Some car shipping companies charge a cancellation fee. Some car shipping customers find it necessary to negotiate specific terms of car shipping contracts, so don't hesitate to inquire about any particular car shipping requirements you may have such as requiring your car shipping delivery date to occur on a certain date rather than the typical contract language for an approximate arrival date as most car shipping companies offer.

When you drop off your vehicle for car shipping, always require a pre-ship inspection to assure a record of the car's condition. When you arrive you will also want to repeat that inspection to assure no damage during the car shipping process. It is crucial that you check your car mileage prior to loading the car and upon acceptance after arrival to assure your car was not improperly driven by others during the transport of your car.

Prior to leaving your car with a Car Shipping company, be sure you receive an original Inspection report. This report provides you with very important information such as: pick-up and delivery time, current mileage. It also shows the condition of your car at time of pick-up (pre-existing scratches and dents, cracked glass/mirrors, general paint condition, etc.). Keep this report and use it when you receive your car back.

Car Shipping Quote

It is important to ask your car shipping company about estimated pick-up and delivery dates and times. You should be able to get a 3-day window for pick-up. The window may be larger during the busy summer or snow bird season. Nevertheless the Car Shipping company should warn you of possible delays ahead of time. If you need an exact date for pick-up, most Car Shipping services can pick-up your car and hold it at a terminal for an additional charge. If you are promised exact dates, get it in writing.

If service is not performed on promised dates, you can ask for possible reimbursement (discounts, no cancellation fee, etc.). Once pick-up is made, your Car Shipping company should provide you with a fairly precise delivery date.

Occasionally a late delivery can happen. Listed below are a few reasons for possible delay of delivery. Often a customer will need an immediate pick up, which does not allow ample time for a reservation on one of our transport trucks. Our Car Shipping carrier will pick-up your car on the day requested, but we will need to hold the car until the first space becomes available on one of their trucks. Uncontrollable factors such as mechanical breakdowns, unfavorable weather conditions, and traffic situations, can also cause delays. Department of Transportation Regulations can also affect the delivery time.
