With the growing popularity of car purchases in other regions and even countries, the demand for carrier services has increased dramatically. Since a car is not quite a standard cargo, and its transportation requires special equipment and knowledge in the field of logistics of a narrow focus, not all companies can provide such a service. Not everyone can, but many strive. Therefore, it is very important to know how to choose a company for American auto movers.
Announcements on forums and specialized sites
Most often, transport companies are found on message boards and specialized forums. Not only experienced logistics companies place their ads here, but also newcomers to the market. There are a lot of scammers on such a platform, so you need to be very careful not to get hooked by them.
What to look for first of all:
- How long has the user been registered on the resource, especially if the site has a narrow direction. The advertisement indicates that the company has been on the market for more than 10 years, and was registered on the site only a month ago, feel free to close the advertisement and go to the next one;
- What exactly is indicated in the ad. If you are promised to deliver a car from the USA in 2 days, you should also not trust such a statement;
- Link to the site – today all reputable companies necessarily have their own resources, where customers can get acquainted with their activities, get the necessary information, find out all the contacts. It does not have to be a huge site with many bookmarks, but basic data must be present: phone numbers, address (if there is a factual and legal one), preferably the number of someone from the management.
What you should definitely not pay attention to is the appearance of the ad. The purchased large advertising space does not mean at all that the company guarantees a high level of quality of the services provided.
Check the company through databases
Today many American auto movers inc open their databases to users. It will not be superfluous to check the vending carrier through them. This is easy to do. Each country has its own base, but mainly it is tax, specialized organizations, associations. If the check is paid, you do not need to skimp, problems with transportation or the loss of such a valuable cargo will cost much more.
Feedback and recommendations
This is not a completely correct source of information. Today, many dishonest companies hire special people for a fee who write hundreds of positive reviews and post them on all possible resources.
But you can go from the opposite, if as a result of monitoring you did not find a single dissatisfied customer, neutral reviews come across one out of ten, then this should, at least, be alarming. Not a single mechanism, even a perfectly debugged one, can work without failures, and a person is designed in such a way that he would rather scold than praise. If the carrier monitors and blocks negative statements in his address, then there are so many of them that they interfere with work. Better not to mess with such.
All these activities need to spend a couple of hours of time, and they can prevent the occurrence of very serious problems.
