We’ve got you! Learn how to avoid the avoidable when it comes to car shipping. It’s easier than you think!
The Off-Route Destination
Imagine this: you’ve chosen your transport company, and you’ve signed the agreement. But, your vehicle isn’t on time for delivery because the driver had to take a different route to get there. This causes the process to slow down and throws your entire schedule off. What? If you’re planning on a long-distance move, be proactive ahead of time. Do your research with several reputable companies to understand their route process to avoid a slower delivery. Take time to read reviews and ask questions about their communication.
Damage Done, But They Aren’t Paying
Car damage can be a common problem if you aren’t prepared. Be vigilant and extra mindful before you hand your vehicle over for any dents, scratches, or cracked glass. Fill out a report describing anything already done to your vehicle, so that the company you choose is held accountable should any damage occur in the transportation process.

Answers to Your Car Moving Questions
The hardest thing for people researching car moving companies to understand is that the prices they are getting are not hard and fast gaurantees, but rather ESTIMATES of what one company thinks it will take to get a vehicle moved promptly versus another company's opinion of what it will take. Don't be fooled, there are not carriers committed to take your vehicle at these quoted prices, the company you choose will still have to get to work getting a carrier to commit to move it at the price they quote you.
Your total price breaks down into two parts, the broker's fee (or 'deposit' as everyone calls it) and the carriers fee (your COD amount) Make no mistake about this, EVERYONE YOU ARE GETTING SALES CALLS FROM IS GOING TO BROKER YOUR MOVE. In this industry, there are brokers who try to fool you into thinking that they are the actual carriers and there are an equal amount of carriers who sell themselves on the fact that they have a truck or two but are not being honest about the fact that they broker out 90% of the orders they book. Here is a quick easy way to tell, if a company takes an up front fee, whether they call it a deposit or any other name, they are a broker. Carriers do not take any payment until the vehicle is delivered.
In our opinion, you are crazy to do so. Have you ever been paid up front for the work that you perform for your employer? Why would you pay a fee up front when there are reliable and trustworthy companies like ours that won't ask for it until we provide you with your carriers details?
The average transit time from pick up to delivery on any vehicle going coast to coast will be between one and two weeks. From there you can figure your transit time based on how far your vehicle is traveling, i.e. from either coast to the Midwest might average 3-7 days.
