Common myths about car transport

Myth is often used to refer to a false story and it explains the truth behind it. Even in shipping their car, people assume things on their own. Let us see common myths on transporting their cars

Avoid transport brokers and deal directly with the carriers

Brokers are best

While dealing with the carriers you may have to face serious risks like lack of customer relations department and difficulty in contacting them when you need updates whereas a shipping agent helps customers and update them regularly.


Remove hubcaps and save money while shipping

This is a simple misconception; your hubcaps are nowhere related with price that you are being charged for shipping.

Hubcaps are nowhere related with price

However certain things are to be removed due to two reasons: First, carriers will meet very strict weight requirements and the next is that the items are not insured.

Quotes are always correct
cross check for zipcodes in the quote form
Do not blindly believe on the quotes the shippers give, always make sure that the zip codes have been recorded correctly.

Terminals increase transit delay

The time that a vehicle spends at a terminal depends entirely on customers requirement and not on the carrier or the terminal.


High Price

Price is one of the major concerns that arise while shipping a car. There are a couple of ways with which you can actually save your money.

Buying a car will cost more than shipping it

Just compare the charges of service to find the best deal just like you do with other types of services. If you are relocating to another country then it would be cheaper to use car transport services than buying a new vehicle.
