Tips to ensure you have a successful car shipping.
Purchased a car from eBay Motors, classiccars.com, bring-a-trailer.com, Cars & Bids or even GSA Auctions . Now when considering getting your prize vehicle home, there are many factors that can affect your car shipping and some can be avoided by understanding a few things you can do to ensure a positive experience.
Total Cost of Purchase
Prior to bidding on online car sites such as ebay motors, or Edmunds, you should consider when the auction or listing ends, condition of vehicle, storage fees and of course shipping cost.
For example, some salvage auctions have limited hours and strict policies on loading cars, and you may require to pay storage fees until a carrier is available to pick up the vehicle.
You should also be aware of the distance between the auction and the final destination – the further away the more time and cost to ship your vehicle. And finally, the condition of the vehicle, if its non-running, a forklift maybe be needed to have the vehicle loaded onto a trailer adding to the total cost.
Choosing the Right Transportation
We understand cost is top priority when purchasing cars online, especially if it’s a prize vehicles from bring-a-trailer.com and you have many options when comes to auto transportation.
When choosing a carrier or broker, you should consider not only the cost to ship, but the time it takes to get your vehicle delivered to your door and trailer type.
For example, if you go with the lowest price, a carrier may cancel your pickup for another vehicle paying at a higher price, then needing you to find another carrier, costing you more time and possible accruing storage fees while your winning vehicle is sitting at the auction lot.
In addition open trailers are the standard and lowest cost. You might consider an enclosed trailer to protect your valuable asset.
