Shipping Salvage Vehicles Purchased From Copart and IAA (Insurance Auto Auctions)
Economy – Spend the right amount on shipping.
If you overspend on the auto transport in order to get the services you think you need for shipping salvage cars, you may have little or no profit left. On the other hand, if you use the cheapest auto transport company, they may not be licensed or properly insured, and have no experience in shipping salvage vehicles. It doesn’t make sense to risk further damage to the salvage vehicles during shipment after investing your hard-earned money.
Care – Apply the correct amount of care during shipping. Knowing that amount depends on the vehicle’s condition.
Truth is, with salvage vehicles, every story is different. When it comes to auto transport for salvage vehicles purchased from insurance auto auctions, understanding that story is essential to knowing how to ship it properly.
Instant Quote Calculators vs. Custom Quotes for Salvage Auto Transport
It’s always best to get quotes from only experienced auto shippers. But not all auto shippers are equal when it comes to shipping salvage cars. And some quoting techniques are at best, inaccurate, designed to trap you into a deal that ends up costing more than you were originally led to believe!
If you’ve ever shipped a car before, no doubt you’ve experienced the endless onslaught of instant shipping calculators. On any given auto transport website there is usually a form that renders an instant quote based on the information you input. But these forms are usually rather basic. In other words, they have a minimum number of fields to fill out, and those fields are determined by what the car shipping industry considers to be the most “bare bones” information needed:
- Where the vehicle is located and where it needs to be shipped
- Make, model and year of the vehicle
- Whether or not the vehicle is running
- What type of transport you want (open or closed)
- Available date
- Your contact information
Nowhere in any of these instant quote forms is a way to mention certain conditions and special circumstances. Instinctively you pick up the phone… You’d think you could simply call them, right? As I’m sure you’ve experienced more often than not these days, getting a real person on the phone is practically unheard of. If you are able to find a phone number, when you call it you end up going through endless voicemail menus without ever speaking to a real human being.
You finally give up but not before wasting tons of your precious time with nothing to show for it. After all, you still have not been able to tell the company who gave you the instant quote about your special circumstances. Do you risk going ahead with the original deal they gave you?
