What Discounts Are Available for Shipping my Car?
When it comes to transporting an automobile there are quite a few discounts that auto transport companies will give you if you meet certain requirements. Auto transportation is expensive, and while discounts really don’t help a whole lot in mitigating the cost, they do help when it comes to paying your auto transport company. Many auto shippers provide discounts for a variety of reasons, but the one thing they all have in common is the fact that they give them to try to get more customers. Discounts work as sales tactics, and you’d be surprised at how well they work. But they’re still discounts, and discounts are always good, so we’ve compiled some of the most common auto transport discounts for your viewing pleasure.
One of the most common ones is the multi-car discount; we talked about that a bit in our last blog post in this series. Basically, you get money off per-vehicle when you ship more than one, often as not. This is one of the most common discounts. Of course, there’s student discounts and senior citizen discounts, which are great for people who are trying to get to college or snowbirds, depending on what demographic you fall into. Some companies offer discounts for paying the entire balance up front, and others give discounts for paying by credit card. If you’re looking for a discount to ship your vehicle, we recommend talking to your auto transport company and see what types of discounts they offer – it’s best to talk to them and get an idea of what specific discounts they offer.
Communication is key when it comes to shipping a vehicle, so the more you have with your transport company the better off you’ll be – even for something as inconsequential as a discount. Not all auto shippers offer discounts, and they all offer different ones, which is what makes communication so key.
