Reviews are one of the quickest ways to discover the heart and soul of a car shipping company. With dozens of choices out there, it can be overwhelming to decide on the right one. Your challenge isn’t a lack of choice—it’s choosing the right one for your needs. Here, we’ll uncover your ‘secret weapon’ and a shortcut to finding the perfect one for you.
Online Reviews—Your Shortcut to Finding the Right Company!
You have the same need as everyone else when choosing a car shipping company: getting your vehicle safely from point A (your drop off location) to point B (your delivery destination). What about your other needs? When reading reviews, you should also look for other factors that will contribute to a great overall experience. Look for a company that places value on the following:
- A quick response to your questions;
- A free quote;
- Helpful service;
- Friendly and efficient service;
- Professionalism throughout every step, including informative professionals that are eager to help you make the right decision;
- A company that offers a schedule that meets your needs (instead of feeling like you need to meet theirs!)
Benefits an Online Review Offers New Customers
An established car shipping company may have hundreds of reviews to read through, so in order to save yourself some time, it’s helpful to know what you’re looking for in a car shipping company. Make a mental list of the top 3-5 attributes you need.
Are you looking for a quick and easy user experience?
Do you need a knowledgeable point-of-contact who will have the time to take all of your questions over the phone?
Do you want a no-obligation free quote?
Are you concerned about possible damage being done to your vehicle and looking for a damage-free guarantee? When you already have a list of non-negotiable requirements, it becomes easier to find a company that will meet those needs.

Frequently Asked Questions
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.
