There are many reasons why people decide to ship their cars. Some people just don’t like driving long distances and would rather pay someone else to do it. Others are looking to sell their vehicles and need to make sure they get top dollar. Still others are downsizing and want to free up space in their garage. Whatever the reason, if you’re considering shipping your car, here are some things to consider before making a decision.
There are thousands of car shipping companies out there and finding the right one can be a difficult task. While searching for car shipping services, you will most-likely come across a lead aggregator website. These sites will sometimes appear to be a single transport company only to find out afer you share your shipping criteria and contact information you are then inundated with phone calls from multiple companies. Lead aggregator sites sell your information to several different transport companies. Fielding phone calls from these companies can be very aggravating and they can be quite pushy – it is definitely not a good experience.
Instead, you can use a free service like TransportBids which keeps your contact information private while companies bid against each other to win your business. In the end, you are almost guaranteed the lowest price from a vetted list of companies without making or receiving a single call. There is no obligation to use any of the companies and your contact information is never shared unless you award one of the companies your business, at which point they will contact you to move your vehicle.
