We have pioneered a mileage rate chart for an accurate quote!!
Fast Auto Transport has partnered up with some of the largest trucking companies in the country. Together, we have created the first and only "accurate quoting system." We base our rates on the mileage between 2 locations and assign a cost per mile just like the multi billion dollar commercial freight industry. Prior to this brokers would just assign a price based on what their best guess would be. This explains why you are getting all the different prices in such a varying degree.
Every morning the rate charts are updated from the central database and a copy is provided to our sales reps to assign the correct quote to our customer base. This price includes all taxes and insurance and any additional gas surcharges.
A car might be moving from Hollywood, Ca to Miami, Fl. and the correct mileage rate might be $.35 per mile multiplied by 2755 miles which provides a rate $964.00 for that trip.
Another competitor will assigns an improper rate of $800 for the same trip which breaks down to $.29 a mile. This happens when they don't use a mileage chart. The transporters will not be picking up this vehicle for $.29 a mile when he get another vehicle paying $.35 per mile.
When its all said and done your car will remain un transported. Watch out for this!!
How do I pick an Auto Transport Company?
Make sure they have a money back guarantee first. You should ask if we will refund your deposit if your vehicle doesn't get scheduled. Also, make certain that they don't charge a deposit up front.
Go to www.safersys.org and search for the transporter by their motor carrier or "Mc Number." This will show if they are licensed to transport vehicles. Very important....
Ask the sales representative if they gave you an accurate quote based on the mileage between the pickup and drop off point. The reason this is crucal is because of the ever changing gas prices of diesel fuel. This is the only way to receive an accurate quote. Choosing the lowest offer will always ensure a miserable experience with an auto transport. Chances are the car will never get picked up because the rate assigned doesn't cover the trucks overhead. BE CAREFUL!!!
