A vehicle shipping broker is an intermediary
between the client and the car transportation
company. Most vehicles shipped in the United States are
cars and trucks, however some specialists handle watercrafts, RVs,
cruisers and different sorts of vehicles.
Vehicle transport brokers
are not the same as car transportation
companies. They collect the information from the client
and post it on a website where car shippers book their loads. When
a car shipping company sees a vehicle that is on
their route they call the broker and get the information from him.
The broker makes a small commission, usually $250, from the price
to ship the car.
The car shipping industry
is like any other. There are many brokers
out there that are willing to do anything in order to earn your
business. Choosing the best price is not always the best
way to go. You should consider many factors before picking
the right company. Make sure that the company that you go with is
fully insured and has a great reputation. If you want the best deal
you should look for an actual car shipping
company, not a broker. Brokers do not have
trucks and most of the time they have never even been near a truck
or a car hauler. Their job is to find
actual shipping companies that can transport your vehicle and make a
small profit from each deal that they broker out to actual car shipping companies like Van 3 Auto
Transport. If you are able to find an actual car shipper to
transport your vehicle you will most likely save at least
$200 and your
privacy will be protected, unlike with brokers, where they sell
your information to actual shipping companies who have the
equipment to transport your vehicle.
Be aware, less respectable auto transport brokers will take your
(non-refundable) deposit then take weeks or months to transport
your car and in some cases not even get the job done! Keep in mind
BROKERS DO NOT OWN TRUCKS, they give the job to
actual car shipping companies to do it. If the
price is not good enough, a car shipping company will not take the
job and look for a job paying higher. While this is a bad dream for
the client, from the broker's perspective, everything's fine
because they have taken your deposit (usually $250). You've
effectively paid the nonrefundable charge and as opposed to sparing
cash, you have squandered a considerable measure of time and money.
Also the irritation, frayed nerves, and anxiety this has put you
