Are you a first-time vehicle shipper, or has it been a while since your last auto transport experience? At Send It Car Shippers, we understand that shipping your vehicle can seem daunting, but it doesn’t have to be. We’re here to guide you through the process step by step, making it as easy and stress-free as possible to ship a vehicle.
When you request a vehicle shipping quote, it’s essential to know that all our quotes are estimates based on recent shipments that are similar to yours. Let’s break down how we arrive at these quotes and what factors we consider.
We take into account the make and model of your vehicle. Shipping a compact car will have a different cost compared to a large SUV.
We consider whether your vehicle is in running condition or inoperable. Transporting a non-running vehicle might require additional equipment and effort.
The distance between your pickup location and your destination plays a significant role in determining the cost.
Seasonal factors, such as weather conditions and demand, can affect shipping costs. Summer, for example, is a peak season for car shipping.
We assess how many truck drivers are currently available in your area and how many vehicles are posted on national load boards, waiting to be picked up. Market dynamics influence pricing.
When we look at recent shipments similar to yours, we often find a range of different prices. This variation reflects the dynamic nature of the auto transport industry. Some factors that affect pricing are beyond our control, such as fluctuations in fuel costs and driver availability.
Once you’ve received your estimate and if it falls within your budget, we take the next step. Here’s what happens:
We reach out to you to confirm a few additional details about your shipment. This step ensures that we have a clear picture of your needs and can find the right carrier.
We then contact our available truck drivers in your area. This process is somewhat similar to an auction. Drivers interested in transporting your vehicle submit bids for the route.
Sometimes, we’re fortunate enough to secure a driver for less than our initial estimate, which means savings for you. Other times, drivers may ask for more due to specific conditions or requirements. However, here’s the good news – we do not require a deposit or any commitment from you until we confirm a carrier that aligns with your schedule and budget.
Once we’ve identified a truck driver who suits your needs and budget, we take the necessary steps to secure your spot on their trailer. Here’s how we do it:
This payment structure ensures that your investment is protected until your car arrives safely at its destination.
At Send It Car Shippers, we’ve crafted our process with your comfort and peace of mind as our top priority. We strive to provide transparent pricing and a flexible payment structure that allows you to ship your vehicle without any financial commitment until you’re comfortable with the arrangement. When you’re ready to start, all we need are a few extra details, which you can conveniently enter on our website. There’s no upfront payment required, and you’ll soon be on your way to hassle-free vehicle shipping.
Let’s get you on your way!
