car shippingThe process of car shipping may not be as easy as you think, but it doesn’t have to be a headache either. Car shipping is something that most people have never done before, so when it comes time to ship a car there are many questions that need to be answered.

We have created this blog to give you ongoing information that will hopefully answer all your car shipping questions.

The way the car shipping process starts for most people is through and online search. What you will get when looking on google or bing or other search engines are the names of literally hundreds of car shipping companies.

We recommend a couple of key things to look for when checking out these companies:

  • What is their BBB Rating and are they accredited?

The reason this is so important is that there are too many fly by night companies out there. They may create a pretty website and make some nice promises over the phone, but eventually they are going to show their true colors and when they do, their previous customers will have no choice but to turn to the BBB.

In order for them to have a good BBB rating they will need a low volume of complaints, but most importantly, they will need to demonstrate that they address and resolve those complaints with their customer. Otherwise they will end up with an “F”. (as if F-orget about this car shipping company).

  • We are Rated ‘A’ as well as Accredited.

The next thing that is a great idea while doing your research on car shipping companies is to look for their Auto Transport Reviews.

  • Look at Transport Reviews or Transport Rankings.

More and more these days, websites are created that are venues where people can go to share their experience with a particular car shipping company. And reading another person’s experience can be a good indicator of what your experience with that company may be like.

If the site allows for responses from the company, then we DEFINITELY recommend reading those too. If the company’s response is “this customer is wrong and here are all the reasons why blahblahblah” then do you really want to be the next customer they blame their poor service on?

Read reviews and you’ll see what we mean.

  • We are 5 Star Rated by both Transport Reviews & Transport Rankings.

But of course, the biggest thing to look for in a Car Shipping Company is a customer service representative that will help you through the process of shipping your car.

We pride ourselves on having the friendliest and most knowledgeable customer service staff in the car shipping industry.

We don’t do pressure sales, because that doesn’t benefit either of us. Our staff will help you understand the process of shipping your car and will do their best to make your move go as smoothly as possible.

Michael began working in the Car Shipping Industry back in 2002, starting as a Salesperson for AAA Discount Auto & Truck Transporters in Los Angeles, CA. In 2008, he opened his own office under the name "Honesty First Auto Transport" where he pioneered the movement within the Auto Transport industry of not charging the customer a deposit up front. Many car shipping companies followed his lead and no longer require a deposit up front. In 2011, in an effort to further improve the customer experience for anyone shipping a car to another state, he changed the name of his company to Safe-Direct Car Shipping and created the auto shipping industry's ONLY Damage Free Guarantee. His hope is that other Auto Transporters will, once again, follow his lead and create similar safeguards for their customers (and he'll be happy to re-emerge once again in a few years with the next great improvement). Simplify things even further, Safe-Direct Car Shipping now operates under the name Ship a Car Direct. He is also proud to announce that Ship a Car Direct has become the #1 company on Consumer Affairs, Transport Reviews and many other review sites. Ship a Car Direct has also been accredited by the BBB since 2008.
