San Francisco Car Shipping 101 – Our Top Tips
Whether you’re looking for vehicle transport to or from San Francisco, your ideal transporter will strive for perfection every time they transport a vehicle. Whether you choose us or someone else, consider these 3 tips before selecting a San Francisco car shipping company.
Do your research online. Shipping your car to San Francisco should be a hassle-free experience. Look for reviews on Yelp, Google and the BBB with customers highlighting customer service, on-time delivery and strong communication. Make sure there are no open complaints on the BBB and the company has a 5.0 rating on Yelp. Look for keywords like “hidden costs” or “late.” Your broker needs to make car shipping an easy process!
Avoid shopping based on cost. Tempting as it may be, going with the lowest price is the single biggest mistake in the auto transport industry. Avoid cheap car shipping quotes as they often lead to unwanted delays and headaches. Many times they’re the cheap quote because they didn’t give you the full quote, use unreliable carriers or old equipment.
Rather than going with the cheapest car shipper, we recommend evaluating San Francisco car shipping companies on the greatest likelihood of a safe, on-time pickup and delivery. Work with a reliable transporter that may cost a bit more but can give you an accurate all-inclusive car shipping quote. Make sure they factor in time of year, location, distance and type of shipping.
Experience matters. The best San Francisco car shipping company has a flawless five star reputation among customers. They are a well-established car shipping company having shipped a wide array from classic cars to oversized vehicles. They are fully licensed, have their own contingent cargo insurance policy and are committed to safety, reliability and outstanding customer service. Just by talking to them you should get a sense they’ll go above and beyond for you and your vehicle.
