Corporate Auto Transport Services and You
Auto transport companies provide services for a variety of different customers in a variety of different industries, and that includes auto shipping services for corporations or for other corporate or business purposes. There are a number of different ways that “corporate auto transport” can be construed, but basically if the company you work for is shipping your vehicle for you (or at least paying for the transport of it), or if your company operates a fleet that needs to be transported, it’ll require corporate auto transport services. Most auto transportation companies will provide corporate auto transport discounts for businesses , especially if you’re relocating to a new office, or opening up another branch in another state.
Corporate auto transport services differ only slightly from standard, personal auto transportation services, namely when it comes to overall price, since discounts are generally available for businesses since they’re, you know, businesses. Most auto transport companies that provide corporate auto transportation will meet you right outside the office for pickup and/or delivery, but it depends on where your office is located and how easy it is for an 80-ft transport truck to get to and from it. When arranging auto transport for a company vehicle, you’ll want to provide your shipping company with your physical corporate address for quotes, and from there you and your shipper can determine if that’s going to be a good place to pickup or deliver your vehicle. If it isn’t, you’ll want to discuss possible pickup and/or delivery alternatives, especially if you’re shipping within a budget and can’t spend too much time or money getting a vehicle moved.
Another thing that can really help are corporate auto transport discounts. Many auto transport companies will provide discounts for businesses on account of their being businesses, and if you own, operate or manage a company you should mention that to your shipper. Corporate auto transport services are different from dealer auto transport services in that corporate transportation services are more for businesses that don’t have much to do with car shipping or the buying and/or selling of vehicles. When discussing corporate shipping, it’s more talking about shipping services for office-based businesses, you know, suit-and-tie, HR’s-on-the-fourteenth-floor-don’t-get-lost-in-the-maze-of-cubicles type of corporate, not just any business.
Most auto transport companies don’t actively advertise their discounts – they’re a business, after all, and while some businesses can get away with offering discounts and incorporating them into their marketing schemes, car shipping companies operate on a much tighter budget, more often than not, so it’s important to ask your representative about any discounts they may be offering and whether or not any apply to you. Many reps will be eager to discuss them with you in order to make the sale, which is common in any industry but not as much in auto transport. Therefore, you should always ask if there are any discounts you qualify for if you’re trying to save money.
