How does the car transport service work?
Let us, therefore, discuss in this article how this type of service works and provide us a useful service while we relocate our residence.
If you ever need this service then you need to either contact the company representative or hire a transport broker who will contact them on your behalf. During the first meeting you need to provide the following details:
- Your location of pick up
- Your final destination
- Full details about your car
- Special instructions whether you will prefer open-air transport or an enclosed container.
- Who will receive the car at the destination?
The auto transport company will decide the charges based on the above details and offer you their quote. You may also enter into an agreement if you approve of the price offered by them.
On your date when you have decided to transport your car, the representative of the company will arrive and pick up your car. Alternately, you can take the car to their office and hand them over. Before handing over the car, you must take out all your belongings and costly accessories as they will not be responsible for their loss.
You also should make a detailed inspection report about your car and also take a few snaps of the car before you hand over the car to them.
The auto shipping company will decide the date of transporting when he will have a few cars available for shipping so that they can use a trailer to ship several vehicles together. Therefore, you cannot expect that your car will be shipped on the same day when you have handed over to them.
You can also track the position of your car as they will provide the contact number of the driver who will transport your car. When it will arrive at the destination, then you will be informed and you may either visit their office and pick your car or you can get it delivered at your location.
You must reinspect your car when you receive it and then make the payment of their charges.
