In the last few decades, there was not only a big boom in car industry, but we also witnessed the new tendency of buying cars cheaper in other countries and then delivering them to the desired place. This is where car carriers come into action. They are basically big and huge vehicles with lots of space to transport several cars at one time and are definitely the easiest way to transport cars on long distance.

To be sure that there are not going to be any major problems with the shipment, you should look for auto transportation service with a good reputation, which can show you proof of insurance as well as list of references. Before you require that information, there are some other things you can get familiar with without speaking to the companies.

Firstly, you should check their experience. If they have worked in that business for long time, there probably won’t be any issues with you delivery and you will get your used car fast and safe.

Second thing you should check when you send your used car with a carrier, is if the company that you are going to use is providing daily reports of the location of the carrier. Those reports should be available every time you want to check and in worst case they should be updated once a day.

Thirdly, you have to make sure that the carrier, which is going to ship your vehicle to the desired destination is equipped as it is supposed to be in order to provide the quality you are looking for.

You need to check how long does it take to load your vehicle in the carrier. Real experts in that area do it really fast and do care for your car. If we are talking about car that is unmovable, it will require more time. Normally it takes between thirty minutes and one hour, if that period is longer by few minutes it is okay, but if it take much longer, then you should check if everything is okay or look for another company.

Check if the period of the delivery is real, calculate how many kilometers for how much time carrier has to do and if everything is okay, including rests and others necessary things, then the company is good.

Other thing to check is if you have to be at the pickup point or someone else can go for it instead of you. It’s better for you to check yourself if everything with the delivery is okay and if no damage is done. If you find something wrong, then you should ask what the damage procedure is and start it right away.
