I Get This Question Everyday.

I get calls from customer asking for transport quote. Today I got a call looking to ship there car from the South Shore Hanover, Mass to Florida daughter was going to school. I gave them a price of 800 which I know I can do if not me I can broker it out but it will get move. The customer replies we got a quote of 575 to move it. How did she get a quote so low she went to one of those websites and put in her information and next thing you know she got 8 quotes ranging from 550-850. Of course everyone takes the lowest one. I hate these websites it gives the customer  the idea a car will get moved for that price. These sales/brokers people all work on commission and will tell you anything to get an order they are fighting against each other to get an order. Little do these customer know that BROKERS have no control if a car gets picked up. They are hoping it does if not they do not get paid.

In addition, your car will sit for days or weeks and be stress out. The quote I give you will be an honest quote. I do not work on commission so no need to lower my price. I will let the customer find out for themselves but give them fair warning on what will happen.

Things to remember. Never give a broker your credit card until they find a carrier. Signing a contract is ok as long as they don’t have your credit card let them find someone first.

Just do your research it takes a couple of minutes on each company to find out if they are good or bad.




I get this question all the time why is your price higher then the other quotes, Very simple brokers will low ball you with a quote.THEY CAN NOT MOVE VEHICLES. 3 things will happen  with low quotes.   1) The car will sit and never get picked up. The broker will call and say the truck is broken down or some other excuse. The truth is they can’t find anyone. 2) The broker will call you saying they need more money. Bait and switch. Brokers work on commission so there is no salary they have to close as many deals as possible to be able make it. Do you really think a carrier is going to move a car from Florida to Mass or visa versa for 450 dollars. No way not in a million years if so that carrier will be out of business in a year or two. Fuel $4.10/insurance about 10-12k a year/ pay driver 25% of load and these trucks are not cheap to fix. The driver is better off not taking it they are wasting a day trying to get it. He can go from florida to North Carolina for 450. Drop that car off get another going to New England for 450. etc. 3) You may get lucky and get a driver that has one spot open and needs to fill it but that is about a 10-15% chance, Get the companies M/C number you can look it up just follow the front page of this website or just ask them for it. Don’t get me wrong there are some good brokers but ALOT of them are scumbags and just want the order and are  praying someone picks it up for the low amount.


These Auto Broker work on commission so they try and get as man orders as possible hoping a carrier will take it. If not will do a bait and switch and call you to increase the price. In this business most broker have no idea how the business works and hoping to get their 35% cut on a 150 dollar broker fee. I do not work on commission, therefore, I have no interest in low balling customers. I tell you the price what I feel will move it. Just check my ratings on the BBB and it tells the story.

What kind of insurance do the carriers use?

Most carriers hold750,000 to one million dollars combined single limit and two hundred and fifty thousand dollars per incident.

This insurance covers damage done to your vehicle in transit. The auto transport carrier is the main and only coverage. Personal contents of the automobile are not covered by the carrier’s insurance, and the vehicle will not be covered if it is lost, damaged, or stolen how do I pay, and what types of payments do you accept

The time that your car is in transit will be dependent on a number of factors, including the origin and destination, time of year, and the actual truck that will be shipping your car. When you get quotes from auto transport companies, you should also ask about estimated shipping time. The following are common time frames for shipping between different parts of the country.

East Coast to West Coast – typically 5 to 14 days
Midwest to East Coast – typically 3 to 7 days
Midwest to West Coast – typically 3 to 7 days
South to the North – typically 3 to 6 days

Sometime Carriers have to stop and pick up and drop off vehicles. They do not make any money when the truck is empty.
