Some auto transport brokers just try to give you the lowest quote they can to get your business. This is called “low-balling” and it’s usually a dangerous sign. How could a lower price for moving a car be a bad thing you ask? I’ll tell you. When a carrier gives you an auto transport quote that seems too good to be true it usually is (as the saying goes). This can be indicative of one or more of a few things. The auto transport broker…
• Doesn’t have the proper expertise to properly ship your vehicle,
• Has a history of bidding for low quality carriers who deliver vehicles in an untimely manner, if at all,
• Doesn’t have a Master Carrier license number (ours is 721291) and, as such, isn’t qualified to ship your vehicle,
• Has a bad reputation and has difficulty getting loads picked up from carriers because they know he won’t pay them enough.
While agreeing to an auto transport quote from the highest bidder doesn’t guarantee you’ll have a great experience, it dramatically increases your chances of not getting burned. But how can you get a good price and get great service? By using a high quality auto transport broker!
