With interstate travel restrictions due to COVID-19, reliable and affordable car transport is needed more than ever. But looking for a car transport service can be stressful, especially while making all other arrangements for a move or the sale of a vehicle. Luckily, a good car carrier company will make everything a lot easier, getting your car from one place to another with the least hassle possible.
Whether you’re looking for car transport from Sydney to Brisbane, Melbourne to Sydney or car transport from Melbourne to Brisbane, you need to know what to look for in a great car transport service. Here’s our four top tips for finding the right car carrier for you.
1. Decide What You Need, Find Out What They Offer
Car carrying companies differ in what they offer. Some only transport vehicles locally, such as a company that only offers vehicle transport in Brisbane, while others only offer interstate vehicle transport on specific routes.
Not all car transport services offer in-car goods moving as part of their packages, and some have limits to the size of vehicles they’ll move or don’t have much experience with classic or vintage vehicles.
At 1800 Move Cars, we work carefully with all our customers to meet your specific needs, and our experienced staff are on hand to answer any questions you might have about what we offer.
2. A Balance of Price and Service
You may be able to find a really cheap car transport service, but can you trust a company that’s quoting half of what others are?
Think carefully about the balance of price and service. Ask about insurance options, how many years of experience the car carrier company has, and how staff have dealt with unforeseen issues (like unexpected bad weather, accidents on the road, breakdowns, or damaged vehicles) in the past.
You get to choose who moves your precious vehicles, so don’t be afraid to talk to more than one company! You want a company that genuinely cares about the services they offer but also has the manpower and equipment to carry out effective vehicle transport.
3. Do They Move Non-Runners and Classic Cars?
Some car vehicle transport companies aren’t equipped to move specialist vehicles, classic cars or non-runners. If you have a vehicle that needs moving that falls into one of these categories, you’ll need to put extra time into researching the perfect vehicle transport specialist. We make it easy for you, though. Here at 1800 Move Cars there isn’t much we won’t move. If it fits on our trailers, we can likely move it for you.
4. Are They True Car Enthusiasts?
This one may sound a little strange, but if the vehicle transport service you pick is run and staffed by true car enthusiasts, they understand how important your vehicles are to you.
You don’t want middleman companies who don’t care about you. You don’t want companies where you can’t speak to someone local who is actually driving your car safely to its destination.
At 1800 Move Cars, we have been moving vehicles throughout Australia for more than 10 years. Every member of our team is not only a careful and well-trained professional but also a diehard car lover. We all have our own projects and treat your precious vehicle like it is our own.
The bottom line?
Don’t be afraid to shop around and to look for a car carrier service you really click with. They should be doing all they can to serve you and your vehicles, which is certainly what we offer at 1800 Move Cars.
