Car Shipping Online Quotes versus Personal Service – What’s the difference?

Think you can get an accurate car transport estimate by punching in a few addresses and pressing “Get Quote”? The short answer is that whether from the auto auction or your front door, no online auto calculator can do your wallet, or your property, justice.

Online auto transport quote calculators typically use only the pickup and delivery addresses to estimate your vehicle transport quote. At best, it will ask you a few additional questions such as if the car, truck, or motorcycle is operational and if you want and enclosed or open carrier.

That’s it. Do you think that’s enough information to really give you the best service or the best price?

The reality is that there are a lot of things that can affect your actual vehicle transport cost. For instance, flexibility with pickup and drop off dates can reduce your quote. If you have a difficult location – picture a busy intersection or mountainous gravel road – this can increase your cost (better to know that upfront than from an unexpected upcharge at the end of service!). Mileage is just the beginning of calculating an accurate transport cost.

And finally there’s the comfort of speaking to someone who knows the vehicle shipping industry, from auto auction transfers to private car shipping. You are spending your money, handing over your valuable property and waving good bye to it. Do you want assurances from a webpage or a person that can find the best route and the best deal for you?

The truth is that vehicle transport is something you don’t do every day, or possibly ever, and you’ll have questions that no amount of online research and review can really answer.
