So when you book your car transport order with a car shipping company, which will most likely be a broker, the shipping company in turn then posts the order on a national load board. Hundreds of licensed auto shipping carriers use these boards to locate cars across country to fill the space on their trucks. So if the price is right for them, the carrier will then contact and book the order from the broker who posted the load. It is important to understand that due to the fact that a few hundred cars can be posted along certain lanes, the carriers of course will book the highest-paying cars first. Therefore price is the single most important factor in determining how quick a car will be shipped. This is where one’s car shipping experience can quickly become a very negative one. Due to high competition among brokers, some will quote low, meaning far below market rates, in order to book an order but as a result will keep the shipper’s car on the truckers dispatch board for weeks and months while promising otherwise.
We consumers love low price. After all, who else keeps Wal Mart in business? However, it’s important to understand that the auto transport & car shipping industry doesn’t adhere to those same rules. In fact, nowhere else do you get what you pay for than the car shipping business. We at Pavel & Sons saw this happening on a regular basis and made a commitment to treat our customers right and that is by being honest and upfront about how this industry works. We won’t quote low or make promises we can’t keep. If you are looking for the cheapest car shipping and the lowest car transport quote is all that matters to you then we can help you too, but there will be no guarantee on pickup dates. The formula is very simple, it’s TIME vs MONEY. If you can wait, then you might be able to save on transport. Yet if you’re on a tight schedule, then the price will need to closer to the going rate at the time.
