Brokers vs. Carriers
When looking for car shipping, it’s best to stick to brokers, as they are the ones that will actually organize your shipment and handle all the money and paperwork. Not only that, but the brokers tend to keep transport prices lower, and here’s why: in our industry, auto transport carriers basically set the prices. They are in control of how much the shipping service ends up costing, and if they had their way, you would be paying thousands of dollars per car shipped.
Brokers Keep Your Costs Low
Brokerages, however, keep car shipping prices low by being competitive with one another. Since most carriers must take car transport loads from brokerages, they won’t price gouge customers because a customer can just go with a different broker. Finding good auto shippers starts with car shipping quotes; from there, you book your order with a broker and the broker will then find a good carrier to transport your vehicle.
What Can I Transport?
American Auto Shipping focuses on shipping cars, trucks and SUVs, but we can move more than just those. Always check with us. as we ship oversized vehicles such as vans, dual wheel trucks, box trucks, and even larger vehicles on flatbeds and lowboys. Make sure that you have the dimensions of any oversize vehicle available that you want to ship, as we will require the dimensions before giving you a quote. Usually the length, height, width and weight of the vehicle moved are required for your auto transport.
What Is A Carrier?
Some auto shippers are known as carriers. These companies are the companies that actually transport the vehicle on their own trucks. Other auto transport companies are known as brokerages, and they are the ones that will be arranging the vehicle transport between you and the carrier. When you fill out our free instant online car shipping quote request form, you will receive an estimate of how much it will be to ship your vehicle on one of our carriers. All our carriers are fully insured for $750,000. Carriers are required by federal law to carry $750,000 worth of insurance on their truck to cover any and all damages that are caused by the driver or theft during car transport.
Go National Instead of Local
Searching for a nationwide auto transportation company will always yield better results on price. It may be tempting to do a search for car transport companies in your area, but the reality is that the best car shipping companies work nationwide and almost always will be based somewhere other than where you are.
