AUTO TRANSPORT BY AIRPLANE

AUTO TRANSPORT BY AIRPLANE

When it comes time to transport your vehicle, or vehicles, to another city, you are faced with several decisions.

One, which carrier do you work with and trust to do the best job.

Two, by what means do you want to transport your car or truck?

We have discussed the first question in an earlier blog posting.  Your best bet is to go with a professional broker who can find you the best deal and can cut through the red tape and get the job done efficiently and professionally.

As for the means of transporting, you have several choices:

  • Open transport by truck
  • Closed transport by moving van
  • Transport by air

The first two options are for those who are not in a particular hurry to move their vehicle.  Often times car transports are booked far in advance, so making reservations in advance is the best advice, and of course booking during non-peak seasons is also helpful.  Transporting in an open auto carrier means an added possibility of small damage to the body of your car because of thrown rocks or weather-related events.  Transporting by closed carrier is more expensive but safer for your vehicle.

The last option is easily the best option if money is not a consideration.  Transporting your vehicle by plane is fast and efficient.  Yes, it does cost extra money, but it also guarantees that your vehicle will be in the new city almost immediately and that it will arrive with an almost zero chance of damage.

Transporting by air is in fact the preferred method for most pro athletes and entertainers who have the resources to pay for the extra cost, and who like the convenience of having their favorite vehicle delivered quickly.

A QUESTION OF INSURANCE DURING AUTO TRANSPORT

A QUESTION OF INSURANCE DURING AUTO TRANSPORT

Inevitably the question of automobile insurance coverage comes up when we are arranging to have someone’s auto transported.  Most people are mistaken in believing that since they have car insurance that it automatically covers the transportation of their vehicle. That may not be the case, and we urge you to check your own coverage policy to find out what is covered and what is not.

The second mistaken impression that people have is in believing that the auto transport company has insurance and so there is no worry about their vehicle.

Yes and no! Yes, all reputable auto transport companies are required to carry insurance; that requirement comes from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. However, the law requires that carriers carry minimal insurance. The key word is ‘minimal.”

Make sure you read the contract carefully before signing on with a carrier. If their insurance, or your own insurance, do not cover all damage to your vehicle, then make sure you purchase additional insurance before transporting your vehicle.

We at Pro Sports Auto Transport can help you with any questions you might have about auto transport, and we can make the arrangements necessary to make sure that the transportation of your vehicle is a pleasant experience.

BEWARE OF LOW BALL PRICING IN AUTO TRANSPORT COMPANIES

BEWARE OF LOW BALL PRICING IN AUTO TRANSPORT COMPANIES

Low-ball pricing is common in practically every service industry. If a customer calls enough dealers, inevitably they will find one that has a much lower price for the service than any other company.

Beware of low-ball pricing!

Why you ask? Simply because of the old adage: if it appears to be too good to be true, it probably is!

When a company offers an unbelievable quote for transporting your vehicle, they then must go out and find a transport company that can do the job for that price, and that is much easier said than done. This is a competitive business, and most times the prices are determined by the marketplace. Auto transport companies are fully aware of the cost involved, and because of the competition they have to keep their quotes realistic.

If you find a transport company that is willing to do the job for considerably less than everyone else, chances are great that they will either not be able to fulfill their contract or they will provide sub-standard service in the process of fulfilling the contract. Either scenario is unacceptable.

Go with a company with a proven reputation and excellent recommendations. Follow those two guides and you can’t go wrong.

For all of your auto transport needs, call Pro Sports Auto Transport. Professional athletes and entertainers swear by us, and that is a pretty good recommendation!

SNOWBIRD SEASON FOR AUTO TRANSPORT

Comment

SNOWBIRD SEASON FOR AUTO TRANSPORT

You have all probably heard the phrase ‘snowbird season’ but do you know what it means?

Snowbird Season is generally considered to be between the months of October and March, when many people, usually retirees, move from the cold northern climates to the warm, sunny southern climates. This happens most often in the Northeast states like New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, etc., and the exodus to states like Florida, Georgia, South Carolina and even Arizona.

We mention this because this is the peak season for auto transport companies, and there are two points of interest you should consider about this season. One, there are many people moving south at this time, which means there are a great many auto carriers concentrated on established north to south routes.

Secondly, since there is so much activity, it could possibly be more difficult to arrange a transport on short notice. The more advanced notice you can give during this time of the year, the better!

Keep that in mind if you have a possible move that you are considering. As always, for all of your auto transport needs, call Pro Sports Auto Transports, the professionals in the auto transport business.
