In this industry, there are two types of companies: carriers and brokers. When looking for auto transport, it’s best to stick to brokers, as they are the ones that will actually organize your car shipping and handle all the money and paperwork. Not only that, but brokers tend to keep the prices lower, and here’s why: in the auto transport industry, carriers basically set the prices. They are in control of how much the service ends up costing, and if they had their way, you would be paying thousands of dollars per car. Brokerages, however, keep the prices low by being competitive with one another; since most carriers have to take loads from brokerages, they won’t price gouge customers because a customer can just go with a different company. It’s simply the process of moving your vehicle from one location to another. Finding good auto shippers starts with quotes; from there, you book your order with the car transporters and they will then find a good car shipping carrier to move your vehicle.
Brokerages focus on cars, trucks and SUV’s, but many auto shipping companies can move more than just those. Always check with the auto shipping company handling your auto transport to see what they ship, but many auto shipping companies can move over sized vehicles such as vans, duly pickup trucks, box trucks, and some companies can ship even larger vehicles. Make sure that you have the dimensions of the vehicle available many brokerages will require the dimensions before giving you an quote. Usually the length, height, width and weight of the vehicle are required.
