Choosing a Auto Transport Company
Check Auto Shipping Companies Facts before Signing up for Auto Transport Service
You'll find Aryan Transport Shipping prices among the most competitive of all reputable auto transport companies. However, you should shop for more than low price. Protect yourself and your car by being wary of these claims:
Ask questions. When you first contact Auto transport company, you should ask as many relevant questions as you can regarding the care they will take with your vehicle, scheduling, contract issues, licensing, insurance, and take some time to get a feel for the type of people you are dealing with.
Get references from transporter. Most car transport companies should be prepared to provide you with several references in regards to recent jobs they have done. If time allows try to contact every reference and ask questions regarding the type of service they received from their auto transporter. Remember, that no one is perfect all of the time, so if there are any less than perfect reviews, follow up with a question to see how the transport company resolved the issue.
Get recommendations from your friends. You can also get references from friends or colleagues and this is an excellent way of finding a reputable car transporter especially if they have firsthand experience of the company themselves.
Check the Better Business Bureau. It’s always a safe bet to use a company listed with the BBB with a clean history. The Bureau does not endorse any particular company, but it does keep records of unresolved complaints and problems. If you find that there an over abundance of complaints and problems with the company your thinking about using, you should probably be looking at a different car transport company.
Shop around. Do not use a company just because the price is the lowest. If you think the price is too good to be true it probably is. Good service is critical to a successful move.
If you’re moving, but have decided you don’t want the moving company to handle transporting your vehicle, you might ask the moving company for a referral to a reputable car transport service with which they ve had positive experiences. Sometimes you may even be able to get a discount from a moving companies preferred car transport service.
Do not be concerned if you cannot find an auto transporter in your local area. Car transport companies will generally have contract carriers, terminals or routes that go through your local area and your vehicle can be dropped off and collected at these locations.
Check licensing. Your company should be able to provide you with their DOT number and MC number. You can check the validity of their DOT number at the FMCA website.
Check transporter insurance. Its important for you to know that your car transporter has adequate insurance to cover potential damage to your property. If you choose an uninsured or under insured car transport company you risk not being compensated for loss or damage of your vehicle. Ask for a copy of the transporters insurance coverage.
Check your own insurance. Your own car insurance policy may cover your vehicle in transit make sure to contact your insurance company to find out. Find out if there is any kind of damage deductible and the amount.
Read contract carefully. Make sure that you read the contract and understand the provisions of the contract. If there is a down payment required make sure you know the conditions under which it will or won’t be refunded. Is the down payment due prior to the pickup of your property, when is the full payment due? If it is practical, you may want to negotiate the full payment upon delivery of your property.

Unusually low rates. By comparing prices, you'll get a feel for going rates. If your quote seems inordinately low, ask the carrier why. Odds are, they're compromising on service. Aryan Transport will only quote you based on the current market and routes. If Aryan Transport can’t ship your vehicle we will simply tell you.
Unusually short delivery times or a promise to pick up the car without a contract. Some companies may give you a verbal promise, over the phone, to pick up and deliver your car. Without a contract, that company could choose to pick up just enough cars to fill a few departing trucks, legally leaving you behind. Aryan Transport will not promise you delivery date unless it's a regular route which in most cases we can estimate time frame for delivery.
Unconditional cancellation fees. This could be a charge of up to $200. If you agree, even if the company doesn't pick up your car, you can still be charged the fee.
"Fully insured." Never take anyone's word for this. Always obtain a written contract, and carefully read the terms and conditions. All America provides full primary insurance.
Short time in business. Some companies change names (or ownership) every year or two. Some even go by as many as five different names. You can find out how long a company has been in business by their federal license number. Any license #500-000 or above tells you they have very little experience.
