Ship a Car in your Move
Moving? Use an Auto Transport Company
Moving is a huge task at any distance! But moving long distance or from a state to another state is quite an undertaking. Online there are so many resources: you’ve got moving checklists, homes to sell and purchase, and belongings to pack up and transport. What could auto transport have to do with moving your family?
Did you know that most moving companies aren’t car shipping experts; they’re experts at shipping furniture, large boxes, dishes, etc. We highly recommend if you’re moving a long distance to hire a reputable moving company! Many families have more than one car, and many times, if you’re moving across several states it’s more comfortable and time efficient to fly. And, if you’re driving a moving truck and a car…who will drive the second car? These kind of logistical moving challenges are exactly what we help with. We can ship your cars in your move and deliver your vehicles on your timeline, making the physical “moving” process less stressful for you and your family.

Just like choosing an auto transport company, there’s a way to distinguish the good moving companies from the bad.
tips for choosing a moving company
Cheaper Does Not Mean Better
Remember that you’re going to be putting all your life’s belongings in these people’s hands. Avoid scams by picking up the phone to validate what you see online. Ask about physical addresses, USDOT (United States Department of Transportation) and MC (motor carrier) license numbers.
Get a Few In-Home Estimates
This means having a representative from the moving company come to your home and see everything that you have to move. Show them each room, closets, and all the furniture. Get the estimate in writing and hold on to it! Ask them to detail what the estimate includes.
Ask for a few recent customers to call and then follow through. Be sure to ask them about their experience and the condition of their belongings when they arrived.
Check the Company’s Address
To be extra careful, you might want to check out the company’s physical address yourself; see the facilities and their trucks.
Check Out Reputable Online Reviews
A business that has an active profile on Better Business Bureau probably cares a bit more about their customer satisfaction than someone with no online customer interaction at all.
