How to Choose A Dependable, Discounted Shipping Company in Ameri

Shipping your vehicle from one state to another can be a daunting task. How can you be sure that the freighting company you use will offer the most discounted rate necessary to fit your budget? How do you find an approved shipping company to transport your vehicle that is cheap, yet dependable?

This article is written with the customer in mind in an attempt to assist you in finding the best, top, approved shipping company to move your vehicle across states with at an affordable discounted rate that will not only fit your budget, but a company that puts great emphasis on customer service too. After all, you don’t want to just hand over your keys to the first one that offers.

First things first, do your due diligence. Although the internet is full of transport shipping companies and brokers, there are reliable sources to get the deal best suited for you. Your first stop would be to visit a directory service online where the customer is able to leave an honest review about their experience. Some examples of these directories online would be;;; or You also want to ensure that the company you find is listed on and accredited by the Council of Better Business Bureaus (BBB). You will find this website at Also, the shipping company or broker you choose to use should be BBB Accredited and have a B+ or higher rating and should be approved and licenced to move your vehicle.

Next you would need to decide whether to deal directly with the shipping company or work through a broker. My advice would be to go through a broker. The reason being, is that dealing directly with a shipping company is a risk most are not willing to take. Should your vehicle be damaged in transit, you may find out when it is too late that the company you used is not insured. Brokers do all background checks on your behalf and over their years of service, build up a data base of dependable transport movers / shipping companies who are approved by the BBB, licensed and insured. Should you choose an unreliable carrier, more often than not, you will find yourself left with a damaged vehicle with no form of recourse.

By using a broker, you will be supported from the time you place your order to the time your vehicle is delivered. The shipping company used by the broker would have to prove their worth before a broker would recommend using them as it has a direct impact on their reputation. Currently one of the highest top rated BBB Accredited and licensed brokers is Amerifreight. Although things can and sometimes do go wrong, Amerifreight‘s staff are highly trained in their field of expertise, their customer service is outstanding and their consultants are very easy to speak to.

In the freighting business, leaving your review of the experience you had is imperative. This is what drives the discount level that you [500] would receive when shipping your vehicle. It is so vital to the industry that by agreeing to submit your honest review can even result in an additional discount. The level of the review is a direct reflection on the company or broker you chose to use and their service levels. You will never find 100% of customers being 100% happy as this is simply not the nature of mankind. Look at the overall picture or image the majority of reviews for any particular company gives.
