When you contact our office in regards to a car transport quote, there are a few things that you will need so that we can get you the most accurate quote possible, and some are things that you may not really be thinking about when you first start searching around for quotes. We want you to get the most accurate quote as we can calculate, which is why we’re fairly in-depth when it comes to quoting your vehicle. Keep reading for a quick rundown of some of the information that the representative you speak to in our office will likely ask for as you begin your auto transportation.
- Pickup and delivery zip codes. These are important because they give us a better idea of where you’re shipping, and are definitely useful when shipping to or from larger metropolitan areas – Los Angeles literally has hundreds of zip codes throughout its metropolitan area. If you don’t have them the names of the cities will work, though we do ask that you have specific addresses if you book your order so we will need the specific zip code sooner or later.
- Year, make and model of your vehicle. This is a standard question, and you’d be surprised at how quotes can change depending on the type of vehicle you’re transporting. Weight is a major factor, so having the year, make and model of the vehicle you need car transport services for will allow us to make any adjustments for the type of car at the quote stage, saving everyone time and getting you a much more accurate quote.
- When you need car transport services. We’ll typically ask you for the first available ready date – i.e., the first date your vehicle will be ready to be picked up. As transport carriers schedule their loads anywhere from a few days to a few weeks out, knowing when your vehicle will start being available will give us an opportunity to fine-tune your pickup date to better coordinate with your needs.
There are some other things that we may ask for, such as contact information, but we do ask that you have those three things on-hand when calling us for a quote to ship your vehicle. If you’re interested in filling out our free online quote request form first, and then letting us follow up with you, that’s certainly an option – the quote form is available to the right of this very page (and is on every page on our website, for your convenience), but you will need the information that’s listed above even for our free quote form. To speak to one of live agents, you can call us toll-free at 888-333-6343 during our normal business hours. If no one answers, either we’re closed or busy, so please leave us a voicemail and someone will get back to you promptly.
