How do you choose an auto transport company you can trust?
To help you with this question we need to explore how auto trasport works and explain to you the entities involved in the auto transport industry.
Brokers / management companies
Broker companies are logistics management partners to both you, the customer and carriers. They work directly with the carriers across the country. And they do all the legwork to satisfy even the pickiest customers’ auto transport needs. Brokers make sure a carrier is properly insured and has all the necessary skills and equipment to transport your car. They also negotiate a price on your behalf and ensure it’s acceptable to you and the carrier.
Carriers are the backbone of the industry; they are also the ones that will physically move your car. Most carriers are independent owner operators who would rather be on the road making money transporting vehicles than looking for leads. For this exact reason, many carriers don’t even have an online presence. They build relationships with brokers that help them fill their cargo space. This type of relationship also keeps the industry from monopolization by big companies. Review our guide about brokers vs. carriers and their relation to learn more how this auto transport works.
In your search for an auto transport company, you will encounter one more player in the industry – lead providing companies. Their websites are often misleading, making you believe they are either a broker or carrier. In reality, they are neither. A lead provider collects your information and then sells it to various brokers. Therefore, whenever you see a promise of multiple car shipping quotes, think twice before submitting your contact details. The chances are you’ll be contacted by various companies trying to sell you their services.
To find a company to transport your sports car you can start online or ask friends and family for recommendations. Reading online reviews helps alot and you should take your time and do that. Also, make sure to look beyond the first pages of Google search results. When you speak with your potential car shipper, ask questions and trust your gut. A good company will be upfront and transparent. To make sure the company is compliant with government regulations, check their USDOT licensing and ask about insurance. Inquire about its cargo insurance – whether it’s existent and what it covers. This part is especially important since you are transporting quite a precious cargo.

What service should you choose for your sports car?
You will have a choice between open and enclosed carrier. An open trailer is the standard shipping method that works for any automobile. But when it comes to shipping a sports car, given the high value of it, we advice our customers to choose an enclosed trailer. It is more expensive and is not always as readily available as open auto transport, but it will add an extra layer of protection. Rain, snow, hail or road elements – with enclosed trialer your car will be fully protected.
How much does sports car transport cost?
Shipping a sports car is more expensive. We say this because when you really care about your car you will choose a more secure, enclosed trailer. Yet, the price to ship a vehicle depends on more than the type of trailer you choose. Several factors affect the auto transport prices on daily basis and we will go over these.
Vehicle Make, Model as well as any modifications done to the car affect the cost. We already know you are shipping a sports car. But have you added any modifications that would require special accommodations to load/unload your vehicle? It’s important you mention them as it may affect your shipping costs.
The distance and the exact pick up and drop off location make a difference. The longer the distance, the more you will pay for shipping. It’s not rocket science. When it gets to pick up/drop off locations, transporting between major metropolitan areas costs less, simply because truckers have more opportunities to find loads fast. Proximity to major highways is also one of the factors that affect the price of shipping.
Supply and demand fluctuations in the auto transport industry play a major role in prices. When the demand is high, the truck space is limited. Hence, higher priced vehicles ship first. It’s just the way the industry works.
Transport Type of course also determines your quote. As we’ve mentioned earlier, you’ll have a choice between open and enclosed carriers. Given the high value of your super car, we highly recommend you opt for an enclosed trailer.
Other factors that affect car shipping cost
When you request a top load you have to pay an extra fee. Your vehicle will travel on the top deck of a trailer, which ensures against possible leaks from other cars.
If you request a guaranteed pick-up or delivery dates, or in some way an expedited auto transort service this will affect your price. Should you need your vehicle on or by an exact date, discuss your situation with your auto transport provider. This service is available to you for an extra charge.
