Whether you book your car shipping order online or over
the phone, make sure that you ask the auto transport company for an
e-mail conformation. Car shipping companies have different ways of
sending you the details of the transaction, but always make sure
that you have something in writing from them.
If you have something in writing, you will be protected in case
the auto transport company decides to change the terms of your
agreement. There are car shipping companies that do not always have
the best business practices, and having proof that you made a
payment with terms and conditions on it will help in case there is
a problem. Some car shipping companies will give you a very low
quote in order to get you to use their services. They will make you
pay the price before they pick up the vehicle, and then they will
call you and ask you for money. These companies do not send you a
conformation with the initial payment that you made, therefore, you
will not be able to prove that you were quoted a certain price.
When you get an e-mail or fax from the auto transport company,
make sure that the total car shipping price is shown. Also make
sure that it describes the services that the auto transport company
will perform for the price you were quoted. If you always demand
for a conformation, you will be protected from paying any extra for
shipping your car.
