  • Family, friends, neighbors and colleagues who have recently used a reputable vehicle transport company can provide you with excellent references.
  • Vehicle transport companies advertise in local newspapers, your phone book, and on the internet.
  • Check renowned shipping companies, like Border Movers if you live near Phoenix, to ensure that you get a fair price and perfect service.
  • Don’t choose a vehicle transport company based on price alone. A general rule to remember is that the cheaper the cost, the poorer the service.
  • Ask your moving company. Often they have partnerships with vehicle transport companies who will be able to offer you a discount.
  • The cost is usually higher if your moving company also transports your car. Although shipping your car in the same van with your household goods seems like a convenient option, make sure your moving company is insured to transport vehicles and find out the amount of the coverage.
  • If there is no local shipper in your area, many vehicle transport companies have contract carriers, terminals and routes that go through your local area. Your car can be collected and dropped off here.
  • If your car is to be stored before shipping, check out the storage facilities personally. The premises should be clean with good security.
  • Sometimes the vehicle shipping companies use agents for their shipping. If this is the case, ask to see the agent’s certificate of insurance. The certificate should be up to date and the amount of coverage should be satisfactory.
  • You may require supplemental insurance because some companies exclude items such as glass breakage, road damage and damage or loss to personal items left in the vehicle.
