The Benefits of Working with an Auto Shipping Broker

The Benefits of Working with a Auto Shipping Broker

You may find yourself wondering what the difference is between using an auto shipping broker and booking your transport with a carrier directly. A carrier uses its own trucks/drivers to ship your vehicle, whereas an auto transport brokerage matches vehicles that need to be shipped with their network of carriers who have space to transport them. There are some great benefits of working with an auto shipping broker to ensure a positive auto shipping experience. 

Connect With the Best Auto Carriers 

A top-quality auto shipping broker, like Metti International, will schedule reliable car shipping with an exceptional auto carrier that you can trust with your vehicle. Brokers are there to guide you through the entire vehicle shipping process and make sure that your car is delivered on time in the same condition as when it was picked up. Many auto carriers are unreliable and can be very difficult to work with, but a trusted auto transport brokerage will make the shipping process easier.

Save Money with an Auto Shipping Broker

Because an auto transport brokerage works with multiple auto carriers, they’ll be able to secure you the best price to ship your vehicle. You’ll avoid having to do the research yourself; instead, they’ll take care of everything for you. Auto transport brokers who have been in the auto shipping business for many years will already know which carriers are best to work with and  be able to answer any questions that you may have about the process. 

Receive Top Quality Customer Service 

An auto transport brokerage will serve as your main contact when you’re shipping your car, will walk you through the shipping process, and help you find the best transport price possible. You’ll find it helpful to have an advocate on your side who will go out of their way to make sure that you’re getting the best service possible.

Metti International offers door-to-door auto transport service where possible. However, there are instances that we cannot collect/deliver directly to the door due to the size of our auto carrier’s trucks. The size of your street may prohibit direct delivery to your door. Also, some towns and cities do not allow trucks on their residential streets. If the carrier cannot get to your door, he will deliver your vehicle to the next most convenient accessible location, such as the nearest major crossing street, a shopping mall or supermarket.

Please have a no more than 1/4 tank of fuel, remove all personal items from your vehicle and have it washed and cleaned so that the ensuing inspection is easily performed. If it is a convertible, T-top, sunroof, etc. make sure all openings are closed and prepared for changing weather. You can find additional tips on how to prepare your car for transport here.
