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.
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.
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.

We’ve been in the auto transport industry for a long time. Over that time we have compiled a list of major routes frequently used by our customers. These state to state routes are to and from the states listed:
Be aware of auto transporters that have less than an A rating with the BBB. Try using only A+ rated auto transport companies
AFta Gap protection
Carriers are not liable for any claims for damage detected after delivery. Very few brokers offer solutions if the damage is detected after delivery. We do.
Don’t believe all reviews
Avoid car shipping companies that compensate for reviews. Many review sites are paid-for sites. Read the small print on how companies are listed and rated.
Websites with only a quote page and very little industry information should not be trusted. Most are lead harvesters and will spam you with multiple emails.
Don’t pay anything upfront
Auto transport companies requesting upfront payment when placing an order should be avoided at all cost. You may have no possibility to cancel your order without losing your deposit.
Promises and Guarantees
Guaranteed rates and guaranteed pickup dates are ways to lure consumers to place orders withvery little promise to deliver.
Explain it all
Be aware of vehicle movers making promises that sound to good to be true are. Let them explain their process and commitments in detail before you commit.
Use a broker
Shipping direct with a carrier can lead to serious financial loss and inconvenience – You will have no recourse if you have issues and damages caused by a carrier.
