If you need to move your vehicle, finding the right transportation company can seem like a daunting task. Understanding the benefits of using a qualified and experienced transport broker to ship your vehicle can make the process simple and easy.
A Transport Broker Has Access to a Network of Carriers
Car transport brokers have a unique relationship with carriers that take the work out of finding the right carrier for the car owner. When you need to move your vehicle, who has the time to research and learn about every individual and available carrier? This is the broker’s job, along with facilitating a beneficial relationship between the customer and the right match in a transport carrier. Need to find the right carrier but don’t have the time to research each one? Ship A Car Direct will do it for you. They review over 7,500 carriers and weed out nearly 80 percent of them to ensure you get a high-quality transport carrier for your vehicle!
A Transport Broker Takes Care of All the Details
A transport broker does the ‘heavy lifting’ by ensuring that the carrier meets your criteria for a smooth and effortless move. For example, some carriers may not have the necessary equipment during the time you need it, or may not be licensed to move your vehicle in the states you need it to. A reputable transport broker can even work out a more competitive rate for your vehicle than you could get alone. However, not all brokerage companies can offer this—which is why finding the right company to seek out the very best shipping company for your needs is essential.

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.
