Signs of a reliable auto transporter

Signs of a reliable auto transporter

When looking for a reliable auto transporter you’re up against a few challenges, the most difficult of which may be to find the one.

Your vehicle is one of your most valuable assets. Hence, you don’t want to entrust it to just anybody. Some auto shippers are neither reliable nor trustworthy. Some use dishonest practices. Others are unreachable. You want to feel secure that the company you hire is reliable and will transport your car to any destination safely.

Finding a reliable car transporter is not hard. All you need is to know how to choose. So, how do you choose a reliable auto transporter? That is the question we will answer today. Let us take a look at some essential signs of a reliable car shipper!

Free, no-obligation quotes

Reliable car shipping companies will always be happy to offer you a free, no-obligation quote without any hidden costs. They know you can get estimates from other companies and they are not threatened by that. Quite on the contrary. They suggest you get multiple quotes, so you can compare and choose the company you trust the most with your car. This is how we work and what we suggest!

Realistic current market price

A reliable car shipping company gives you a quote that is neither too high nor too low. You will receive a fair price that reflects the current supply and demand situation. Additionally, there should not be any extra fees and costs they could make you pay later. The quote you get should be an all-inclusive final price. This is how it is when you book with Corsia.

No up-selling

A reliable shipping company won’t even try to push any specific upgrade unless they really think it is necessary for your vehicle. The logistics experts will lay out all your options clearly and simply. They will tell you how much each option will cost you, and why some options cost more than others. In the end, they will let you pick the services you prefer. As you may know, the majority of operable cars and trucks can be safely shipped in open car carriers nationwide. If you need to upgrade to enclosed transport to better protect your vehicle against weather elements and road debris, you can do that. The option to choose an expedited service should also be your decision, without any unnecessary push from the logistics agent.

No pressure

When you need to ship your vehicle from one place to another, make sure you start your research several weeks in advance. The whole process, from the initial research to delivery can take about a month. That is why it is advisable to plan as early as you can. A reliable and trustworthy company knows how important it is for you to able to be trust your auto transporter. And finding such a car shipper may take time. That is why a good company will not try to push you to book immediately. They will let you take as much time as you need, and ask as many questions as you need. It is important that you understand how shipping a car works.

Prompt responses

Trying to contact an auto transport company and waiting forever for them to respond is tiresome. You know you deserve better! If the company you are trying to reach is not responding, it is time to move on. If the car shipper is unreachable from the beginning, that is a clear sign you will have problems reaching out to them in the future.

You should look for a company that responds promptly. Reliable auto transport companies are responsive. You won’t have any trouble finding their contact information on their official website as well as social media channels. They are ready to talk to you and help you as much as they can, which brings us to our next point.

Friendly customer service

A reliable shipping company lets you talk to real people who are friendly and helpful. You can always contact them via live chat support or email. But talking on the phone to a representative is going to give you a real feeling of their customer service. You will notice right away how friendly, knowledgeable they are.

Have questions? Pick up the phone and start calling the top 2-3 picks on your list. It will make your choice much easier.

Good customer reviews

When you search for a shipping company and find only bad customer reviews or no reviews at all, it is a red flag. A reliable and experienced shipping company will have plenty of great customer reviews. It cherishes its reputation and the quality of service.

You don’t want to hire an auto transporter that will just get the job done. You need to find one that gets the job done well and goes the extra mile for their customers.

Up-to-date registration and verifiable insurance

A reliable shipping company should have all the necessary registration and insurance up-to-date. Shippers without current registration cannot operate in the US. To make sure they have one, check their registration via the US Department of Transportation Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). You can also lookup their seven-digit USDOT number on their website.

Looking for a logistics company, to ship my car, from California to Illinois,my first search, then Corsia showed up, skeptical. Call and a very friendly secretary: Elena. She guided me through, I scheduled and as she explained, all when smooth as scheduled Very happy I did the right choice.

Corsia was highly recommended by a friend in the automobile industry. We needed to transport a cargo van from Seattle to Florida. We contacted Corsia who quickly arranged transport within just a few days. Communication was outstanding! Just a few email confirmations and we were all set. Mike was great and arrived right on time and delivered to Florida on schedule. Tip-avoid the hornets nest of auto brokers on line and just contact Corsia for a truly great experience!

Corsia has been amazing. Their prices are really competitive but more importantly their customer service has been 5-Star. Elena followed up with me every step of the way, making sure there was no miscommunication between me & the driver. We are using them to ship a 2nd vehicle & would not hesitate to use them again!

I have recently used Corsia for long time family car with sentimental value that was moved I have recently used Corsia for shipment of my vehicle from Oregon to Arizona by recommendation from other family member who also used Corsia in the past. I am very pleased on the service and the communication throughout shipment. Ken was my direct contact and kept me informed along the move The car was picked up and delivered as communicated. I did use a enclosed mover and the driver was also clean cut professional and treated car as his own. I would definitely recommend Corsia again with the experience I have had. Thank you. T

Corsia rep (Elena) was very proactive. Helped ship a car from CA to GA. She checked in with me via email quote and several phone calls to find me the best possible quote for the fastest available service. After several communications, Corsia was able to schedule a vehicle pickup the next day. The driver communicated well, and the vehicle arrived in final destination faster than we expected in perfect condition. I highly recommend using Corsia's reliable, efficient service.

Thanks, Corsia! Pickup was so clean, efficient, and wonderful -- my only recommendation is to make sure you schedule it during the day so you can fully review the car in the daylight. Drop off was equally wonderful, and the whole trip went down without a hitch (pun intended!). Seriously, Corsia delivered my Jeep from CT to California with no issues or bumps in the road!

Corsia Memphis to LA, mid-size SUV. I looked at 4 different companies amd Corsia was the most responsive of them. While being responsive, they were not unduly aggressive: when I indicated that I need to wait a month before making a decision they stopped contacting me and only came back with a reminder when I really needed it. Once I decided to engage Corsia they found me a transport within two days and the car was delivered (from Memphis to LA) in another two days. I had a truly positive experience.

Working with Corsia Logistics was a great experience. Working with Corsia Logistics was wonderful. They were able to find a driver right away to transport our car. They were in constant communication as to when the car was getting picked up and dropped off. The driver also communicated with me as to when he would arrive. I would highly recommend Corsia Logistics.

Corsia was an excellent company to work with while I transferred my car across the US. A friend of mine suggested I use them as they had been very organized and trustworthy with her own car. I researched a few different place but decided to go with Corsia and I'm so glad I did! Any questions I had throughout the process they answered quickly and clearly. I would definitely use them again in the future and recommend them for others to use.
