Because your car is one of your most prized possessions, it is paramount to hire a trustworthy auto shipping company. You are essentially giving complete control of your car to strangers at a company you found online. Trust is something that must be earned, and when it comes to picking an enclosed car shipping company, there are a few things that you should do to ensure that you could trust them. The first step is getting an idea of how trustworthy they actually are.
1. Get Quotes and Compare Companies
The first step to finding the right company for your car is to gather quotes and compare companies’ prices and services. Don’t book the first company you find. Finding the right shipper for you is important, and you have to compare at least a few options. If you choose a random company or the one with the cheapest price, it may end up costing your vehicle, or more, in the end. .
2. Read Reviews
We recommend reading customer reviews of the companies you are considering. In order to understand how those companies operate and what their services are, read a few recent reviews. This is the most important part to finding a trustworthy company. See if reviews discuss how helpful and professional the company was. Did they give the customer a hard time or was the vehicle damaged in any way?
3. Ask Questions
Call and pose questions to prospective companies you may hire. Ask question relevant to the shipment of your specific vehicle type. Speaking to their representatives will give you a sense of how they handle customers and what kind of people they are. Most importantly, try to build a rapport with your representative, as that’s going to be the best way to determine the trustworthiness of their company.
