The ABCs of Auto Transport
There is no doubt about it: relocation is a time of stress for most people. Consider for a moment that most people will relocate within 25 miles of where they currently live. Stressful for sure; unsettling for sure; doable for sure.
Now consider that professional athletes and entertainers move thousands of miles when relocation becomes necessarily. The stress magnifies considerably when a relocation of that distance is undertaken and it is only natural that few people understand what is in play during the process.
One of the most frequently asked questions from my clients is about auto transport. How does it work? Who do I trust? Why are quotes so different from different companies? That’s why I thought I would take a minute and see if I can’t answer a few of those questions.
When a client visits out website to coordinate his/her vehicle transport, we typically have them start by completing the vehicle transport form which is a questionnaire concerning auto transport. After they have done that I spring into action and start shopping for the best rates for that particular vehicle move. Just as with any other service, rates can vary from shipper to shipper and it is my job at SportsRelocation.com to find you the most reliable service at the best value for your money.
So why do rates vary so much? Generally it all has to do with how quickly you need the vehicle transported. With more notice rates go down; a hurry-up transport means fewer shippers will be available and the number of options diminishes. Think supply and demand and you will have a clearer understanding. Once I or one of my agents has narrowed down the list of shippers who can do it at the requested time we then look for the most reliable shipper with the best rates and the best track record.
Unless the location of your vehicle makes it impossible to get an auto carrier into your neighborhood your vehicle will be picked up at your home and delivered exactly where you want it delivered. It is always advised that personal belongings not be left in your vehicle and during the transport your vehicle will be insured.
For a novice at this it all can seem confusing and doubt about which carrier to use is normal. That is why it is always a good move (excuse the pun) to go through an intermediary like SportsRelocation.com.
