Many customers who are shipping a vehicle for the first time often begin the process with preconceived notions about how the process works. Misconceptions can lead to less-than-stellar experiences, and the difference in what they think is going to happen and what does happen often leads to conflict down the road.

One of the biggest misconceptions about the auto transport industry is how long it takes. When you place an order with a car transport company, it will take anywhere from a few days to up to two weeks to find a carrier to ship your vehicle. Once that shipper is found, it can take another three to five days for them to get to you to pick your vehicle up, and then you have to wait for the physical move.

Another misconception that many customers have is that cheaper is better. In some walks of life this may be true; in the auto transport industry, however, booking your shipment at the lowest price can lead to a sour experience. Lower-than-average prices tend to take longer to get picked up, which is why you should gather multiple quotes and get a good range of prices. Choosing a company in the middle will almost always yield a positive car transport experience.
