AmeriFreight Review Policy

Shipped Vehicle Multiple Times with Samantha

Samantha worked with us to find a carrier for our time frame and price range. It was a postive experience, and we've shipped our vehicle several times using Amerifreight and Samantha

The entire process went smoothly

When we decided to move from the East Coast to California, we knew we would need to transport one of our cars. We looked into the several companies but decided to go with AmeriFreight. We are glad we did. It was an excellent experience. The entire process went smoothly from pick up to delivery. The cost was just as was quoted and they actually delivered our car early. Special thanks to Erica Hudson for her professional guidance in helping us through the transport process. We know that this can be a very concerning process and given the ease of our car transport, we highly recommend AmeriFreight.

Brandy was very helpful and made the entire process easy. She worked hard to ensure everything went smoothly! Highly recommend using this company to ship your vehicles.

How Does the Auto Transport Industry Work?

If you have questions about how the car shipping industry works, we are here to help. Having a solid understanding of the industry that’s about to transport your valuable car will put your mind at ease. You will also understand why certain policies and procedures are in place.

The Role of Brokers and Carriers in Car Transportation

Auto Brokers (auto transport companies) act as intermediaries between carriers (see below) and customers. They handle the business side of things. Brokers will first provide you with a quote. They will then connect you with carriers who own the actual trucks used to transport vehicles. As a broker, we at AmeriFreight make it a top priority to ensure that the companies we contract with have excellent ratings and adhere to strict standards.

Auto haulers (carriers) can be trucking companies or individual owner-operators. Because carriers want to load their trucks as fully as possible for economic purposes, they use websites to find vehicles that can be consolidated into one route. Central boards (or load boards) are sites where car shipping companies post available loads. Most carriers don’t work directly with customers and instead opt to partner with brokers, as they act as intermediaries by posting the available vehicles onto a load board.

Typically, auto transport companies give you a quote without having a truck ready at that moment for car shipping. Remember, this is only a quote. After you request a quote online, you should receive an email and/or phone call from the broker. Once you select a particular broker, they will begin searching for the best carrier to ship your vehicle at or as close to the quoted price. It is extremely important to remember that a quote is only a quote until a driver accepts the price.

Why You Should Opt for an Auto Transport Broker

As a word of caution, beware of any company that makes empty promises to you. They may say that they have guaranteed pricing and pickup dates and they own trucks right in your area. In this industry, however, no broker can guarantee these factors.

Selecting an auto transport brokerage to partner with rather than working directly with a carrier is always your safest option. Because reputable car shipping companies have in-depth industry experience and expertise, they know the carriers that are honest and affordable. Car shipping brokers also save you a lot of time and reduce your hassle by doing the hunting for you. The broker creates a lead for your car, posts it on the load board. The broker then has to wait for carriers to offer their own quotes/bids, much like an auction. The broker then brings you the carrier bid to accept or decline. The load board allows a broker to compare available offers, screen out suspicious offers, and hunt down the best deal for you. To ensure efficiency and peace of mind when shipping one of your biggest assets, go with a broker.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

IMPORTANT FACTS TO KNOW ABOUT AUTO TRANSPORT

Which auto transport reviews are important to consider?
Reviews and accreditation's for car shipping companies are the most important considerations for consumers. Do some research with the Better Business Bureau (BBB) and Google and check reviews from previous customers. A reliable and dependable auto transport company should at least be accredited with the BBB and have a high rating (A or higher). The BBB is a great independent business reliability evaluation board for auto transporters. Most auto transport review sites receive some compensation for their services from companies. As a result, sometimes reviewed companies pay for their rankings. Shipping your vehicle should be with a car shipping company you can trust.

How Much Does it Cost to Ship a Car?
The right quote is not always completely predictable. The cost ranges from around $495 to $1,300 on average to ship a sedan in running condition on an open carrier. Factors that may affect the cost includes, but are not limited to the distance, vehicle’s condition (operable/non-operable), size and how soon you want it shipped.
Read More
Do car shipping costs vary from state to state?
Vehicle shipments to California (CA), Florida (FL), New York (NY) and Texas (TX) are the most busy routes. Other states like Georgia (GA), Virginia (VA), Washington (WA), Massachusetts (MA), Ohio (OH), South Carolina (SC), North Carolina (NC), and Arizona (AZ) are also popular. The remaining states are less in demand and therefore have less carriers supporting those routes. Use our Rate Calculator to get an estimate on how much it will cost to ship your car.

Auto transport Carrier or Broker?
To ship a car without a broker is a calculated risk. The Auto Transport industry is regulated by using brokers to ensure that customers are not exploited by questionable Car Shipping Carriers. Auto Transport Brokers have been given the task to help and educate consumers to ensure that their carriers are licensed with the DOT and insured. Without a broker, consumers may run the risk of using an unreliable, uninsured and illegal carrier, which more often than not may leave one with a damaged vehicle and no form of recourse.

Car Shipping Insurance – Do I need Gap coverage?
It is true for all car shipping companies, including AmeriFreight, that your car will be 100% covered by a carrier’s insurance while it is loaded onto a truck. Unfortunately, what most brokers will not tell you is that often times there are exclusions with insurance. In some instances, a carrier’s insurance may fail to pay for damages to your vehicle, leaving you in a situation where you must revert to your own personal vehicle insurance. Consider auto transport companies that offer gap protection through the AFta PLAN. No car shipment should be without it and every car shipper should reconsider any company that do not offer gap protection for shipping vehicles.

What else should I know about auto shipping?
Auto shipping companies have pricing structures that include the distance, time frame, time of year and weight of car. Auto brokers consider the following, when estimating the cost to transport your auto: 1. Current location of the vehicle and the intended destination 2. Time frame – do you need to ship your vehicle urgently or do you have a little time to get your auto broker to find the best price 3. Fuel costs – most shippers use diesel, when the price of diesel increases, so do shipping costs. Ship your vehicle quickly if there is a drop in diesel price; 4. Whether you require door-to-door or terminal-to-terminal pick up and delivery 5. If you wish to ship your car enclosed or in an open carriage.
