Auto Transport Tips: Student Car Shipping Services
Something a lot of people don’t really think about in the auto shipping industry is the college student, which shouldn’t be because students – while not the largest demographic in the industry – are actually a pretty good-sized chunk of customers waiting to find a broker to ship their car.
Companies that go out of their way to help struggling college students be able to get their main method of transportation across the country go a long way in making loyal customers, and while not all brokers offer things like student car shipping discounts, more and more are seeing the advantages thereof, so it’s easier than ever to find someone to ship a vehicle and help you because you’re a student.
Of course, most students are broke – between tuition, textbooks, housing and living fees, things can be really expensive for a student, especially if they’re going to school out of state. This is a big reason why many auto shipping companies provide discounts for student car shipping services, and often why they’ll work with students to get their vehicles shipped at a more affordable price.
While any and every student will be subject to the same conditions that everyone else shipping a car is subjected to, on the whole it shouldn’t be too big of a deal if you can budget accordingly and make certain to ask for discounts.
Student car shipping discounts and services are going to be easier to find if you are shipping to and from a college campus or housing that is close by.
Because people want to get discounts regardless of if they qualify for them, you may need to provide some type of proof that you are a student to the broker before they apply a discount. Oftentimes this is little more than a picture of your student ID or an admission letter saying you were accepted – different brokers may ask for different things from you, but so long as you have some sort of proof that you are a student at the college or university you’re trying to ship to, you should be able to get a discount on your shipping services.
