Great Tips For Vehicle Shipping Before You Ship
These are just a few facts about Vehicle Shipping to help you make an informed decision before you make one.
Your biggest concerns are price and how the car is moved on time. These are just a few things to keep in mind.

You have to return the deposit you made. You'll also be subject to a $75 cancellation fee if the deposit is not returned. (Not in ours, however)
No upfront deposit is required, regardless of whether you are shipping a car with us, or another company. We are one of many ethical companies that won't require a deposit until we have you signed up with a carrier.

However, if you look at a quote from someone, the broker usually gets the deposit amount and the rest goes to the car carrier. This is the COD amount.
If you receive a lower quote than others, it is possible that the car carrier won't be interested in your move. Your move will sit on the website without anyone being interested. It's often the low-priced quotes that require a deposit. Be careful.
We are happy to re-examine your quote if it isn't competitive enough. We can even go online and show you the prices of other cars while we talk. Our top priority is to ensure that your price is in line with other competitors.
