Auto Transport Service
At American Auto Movers our core business is the car transport services. Over the years our reputation has been built on not necessarily being the cheapest company, but being a reliable and honest one. Like most things in life, we find that in our industry you get what you pay for. More often than not people will call and look for the absolute cheapest price for their shipment. Unfortunately when you are considering different auto transport services, it can backfire on you. One of the most key things you can do before choosing a company to handle any shipping is to do your homework on the reputation of the firm. This is key as there are some companies who have a bad reputation for misleading customers and not keeping to their promises.
There isn't a lot of variety when it comes to vehicle transport services. There is transport on an enclosed trailer, which is typically reserved for high end exotic cars or classic cars that need protection from the elements. As well with those cars, motorcycles also are shipped on enclosed trailers because the floor of the trailer has the appropriate hooks to allow the driver to secure it safely to the floor. Some companies will load motorcycles on open trailers but we feel they are much safer enclosed, and not worth the risk of running open. There are open trailers which are typically 2 levels of trailer very similar to what most people have seen at a new car dealership. When you are thinking of a car transport service this is what most people are referring to. This is to relocate 90% of the cars on the road to any destination. Finally there are hot shot trailers or wedge trailers that are used for moving large or oversized vehicles not exceeding the weight limits of the trailers. Since these vehicles will sometimes be tall these long flatbed type haulers can not worry about staying under the 12' 6" DOT requirements and therefore it is more of a specialized vehicle transport service.
Give our office a call, let us find out exactly what kind of service you are looking for and we will point you in the right direction. It is a very simple industry but if you are like 95% of the people in America you are not shipping your car very often so it is hard to know who to use. Well having the right information can help you in making the safe decision in getting your car moved safely. We look forward to hearing from you.
