Auto Transport Tips: What to do When Brokers Don’t Stop Calling
When you fill out the free quote request form on our website and submit it, you’ll get a free, comprehensive quote immediately. But many companies take your information and send it to ten different American auto shipping companies instead. These companies are called quote providers. And while they aren’t ideal, they are an important part of the auto transport industry.
This type of method is crude but effective advertising; in essence, auto shippers are relying on these quote providers to find people to call and try to make a sale. We’ve heard plenty of horror stories over the years. If you are being harassed by auto transportation companies, there are several things you can do to get them to.
First off, tell them you don’t need their services, are not interested in what they are trying to sell and that you demand to have your number removed from their system. This is usually the best, most direct method of getting auto transporters to stop calling you or e-mailing you.
If they continue to contact you even after verbal and written communications requesting them to stop, you can take your complaints to the Better Business Bureau, Transport Reviews, and possibly even the police, as it can be considered a form of harassment. Simply put, you have to do some work to make sure they stop calling. It’s not ideal, but that’s the way it works these days.
