Avoid Paying Deposits

A trusted auto dealer will not ask you to pay a deposit first. However, you should pay when picking up the vehicle. Dealers who ask for money before delivering may not protect your car from damage during shipment.

Don’t Base Decision on the Price

In most auto transport companies, you get services based on what you pay for. Therefore, if a company offers very low prices, you should avoid them as they may not offer the best protection for your vehicle. Low prices also mean they may avoid other key shipment factors such as insurance to reduce the cost.

Check for Bad Reviews

Check for reviews on different platforms before selecting a dealer. For example, a company with too many negative reviews on inadequate deliveries and poor customer services should signal you to avoid them. However, one or two bad reviews aren’t that bad.

Consider Type and Size of the Car

If your car is vintage or classic, you should consider shipping it in an enclosed trailer rather than an open one. Enclosed containers are more expensive, but they offer more protection for the vehicle.
