"I shipped two vehicles from Houston TX to NJ on July 1st, 2015. Ashley at Carbone was great. Even though she was on vacation she kept us updated and informed through the whole process. Price was more than fair especially compared to what the company that moved our household stuff quoted. Everything went off without a hitch. I highly recommend this company for your auto transport needs."
"Great to deal with Ashley was always in contact even while she was on vacation. Great service fair price .delivery was on time but they managed to get it to me sooner than I planned.
With my permission."
"I AM SO GLAD THAT WE USED CABONE'S AUTO TRANSPORTATION TO SHIP OUR CAR FOR THE FOLLOWING REASONS: (1) THEY WERE THE LEAST EXPENSIVE OF ALL OF THE QUOTES THAT WE RECEIVED. (2) THEY DID NOT CHANGE THE PRICE AFTER PICKING UP THE CAR. (3) ASHLEY CALLED AND GAVE US AN UPDATE EACH STEP OF THE WAY AND SHE ANSWERED OUR CALLS OR RETURNED OUR CALLS WITHIN MINUTES. (4) THE CAR WAS PICKED UP ON TIME. (5) THE CAR WAS DELIVERED ON TIME. (6) THE DRIVER WAS VERY COURTEOUS. (7) THE DRIVER ARRIVED TO OUR HOME BEFORE WE DID BUT HE WAITED AND WAS VERY PATIENT (8) THE CAR WAS NOT DAMAGED IN ANY WAY (9) ASHLEY PROVIDED US WITH THE DRIVER'S CONTACT INFORMATION AND HIS OFFICE INFORMATION. (10) AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST, ASHLEY FOLLOWED UP WITH US AFTER THE VEHICLE WE RECEIVED THE VEHICLE TO MAKE SURE EVERYTHING WAS COMPLETED TO OUR SATISFACTION. WE WILL USE CABONE'S IN THE FUTURE FOR ANY SHIPPING NEEDS AND WILL RECOMMEND CABONE'S AUTO TRANSPORTATION TO ALL OF OUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS BECAUSE THEIR CUSTOMER SERVICE IS SECOND TO NONE. ASHLEY, THANKS FOR PROVING THAT BUSINESS CAN STILL BE DONE WITH A SMILE AND COURTESY!!"
OPEN CAR TRANSPORT
Open vehicle shipping is the most cost effective way to move your car. With open auto transport, your vehicle is placed on an open-air auto shipping trailer. This type of car transport works with any vehicle, including trucks, SUVs, motorcycles and boats. The down side of open vehicle transport is that your vehicle is exposed to the elements during the vehicle shipping process. But remember that many car dealerships trust open car shipping for many of their new cars.
ENCLOSED AUTO TRANSPORT
ATS Transport’s Enclosed Car Transport Service provides the most protection for your vehicle. Our enclosed auto shipping service uses only the best enclosed auto transport trailers that will protect your vehicle during inclement weather. Enclosed car shipping protects your vehicle from any potentially damaging road hazards such as low hanging trees, debris from travel, and many other unexpected elements ATS Transport highly recommends enclosed auto shipping for high-value exotic cars, classic cars, luxury autos, and even motorcycles. Enclosed car shipping is the best option when you need white glove service to protect the value of the car. Keep in mind that, in most cases, shipping enclosed can be significantly more expensive than open auto transport.
An auto transport broker is an intermediary between you the customer and the motor carrier that will actually transport your car. A broker designs the best strategy to respond to your specific demands, increasing your chances to have a good car shipping experience.
Some people tend to reject the idea of a broker, and may wonder if there is any way that the “middle man” can be eliminated. Here is our answer.
Can I do without a broker?
Provided that you agree to take upon yourself the risk of an uncertain, time-consuming and (more often than not) more expensive car transport experience, yes. However, we do not recommend that you do it.
Why is using a broker a better idea? Consider these facts:
One of the main reasons is that they aren’t tied down with their fleet. Many carriers have a fleet of trucks, but the problem is that their fleet is often far away from where you happen to be. A broker, on the other hand, is able to quickly and easily track down trucks in your immediate area; that way, your pickup time is much sooner than going with a carrier.
Brokers have a vast experience in intermediating car transports and have filtered the good carriers from the bad ones. It is a lengthy process of learning, through which they have already done for you. It is wise not to try to go through this process yourself, and at the expense of your car. Brokers are centered around customer service. It is possible that motor carriers do not have such a department (some drivers own their company too), which may make for an extremely stressful experience.
Do-it-yourself car shipping may end up an extremely time-consuming, and a more expensive alternative. On the other hand, brokers have already defined strategies for moving your car safely and as cheap as possible.
If you decide to do it yourself, you will have to find not only a main carrier, but possibly deal with terminals or flatbed services, and carefully synchronize all of these with your schedule, while still keeping it cheap. We see this as a highly risky endeavor.
So it can be easier to use an auto shipping broker, what else?
Besides, why would you want to tie yourself down to one carrier? Car shipping is not an exact business; many times, trucks run late and sometimes even cancel. When you ship with a car shipping carrier, as opposed to a car shipping broker, you’re tied down, and if the carrier suddenly decides to drop the ball, you’re sent packing with nowhere else to go. Not so with a car shipping brokerage. If a truck breaks down or fails to pickup the car (rare occurrences, to be sure), they can just find another one, saving you time and money on your car transport.
Another great thing about a brokerage, more specifically, using our website to get free car shipping quotes, is that you aren’t obligated to ship with any of them. With carriers, typically you’ll get a quote and then they’ll want to book it immediately. Not so with a brokerage. With a brokerage, you can get quotes, see their prices, and then react to the price and see which one is best suited for you; mostly, the quotes you get from carriers will be estimates, and then they’ll spring you with additional fees and surcharges. With a brokerage handling your car transport, the price you’re quoted is the price you pay. End of story.
Okay, I get a lot more options with brokers, I like that!
What’s also nice about booking your car shipping with a brokerage is that you same time, money, and hassle. With a carrier, it sounds like you’d be getting a good deal: direct contact with the trucks, etc. However, that’s just not the case. Many carriers don’t have the equipment necessary to communicate with their trucks the way brokerages can. Plus, carriers have many trucks all across the United States; brokerages have one at a time. The customer service representative (CSR) from the brokerage you choose for your transport focuses on you; the CSR at a carrier has so many more things they need to do, and you will get lost in the shuffle.
The first thing you need to make sure is that your car is safe and functioning. The transporters will make sure that the brakes and steering are working properly by driving the car on and off the carrier at some time during the delivery. Usually a car transport truck has two levels and your car might be on the top of another person’s car.
You should be present during the inspection of your vehicle before shipping. Companies require you to sign a bill of lading as well as details on the state of the vehicle. The checking is done both before the car is shipped and when the vehicle arrives at its destination. If it is impossible for you to be present during the inspection you may ask someone as your representative to be present during the inspection. In case there is any damage to your car during transport, ATS Transport will provide you (customer) the carriers Certificate of Insurance, so a claim can be made.
Make sure that you have disabled anti-theft devices and alarms connected in the car. It might cause problems and unwanted expenses if the alarm goes off during the transport of the vehicle. Remove personal belongings except the tools that are needed such as spare tire and jacks.
