A very important aspect when choosing an appropriate company advertising its services in international car shipping is its reputation. Before you contact one of the agents, you should check on websites connected to international car shipping if there has been no complaint about its services.
Another step is to send a car shipping quote in order to find out more about the international auto shipping offered by a chosen company. When you already know a car shipping cost you may contact the agent via email, by phone or eye-to-eye.
During a conversation with a car shipping agent you should make sure what exactly the car shipping cost includes. An essential thing is an insurance against the damage that may take place during the transit.
You should also check if the agent possesses a license. Only then you can trust that people working in the company are responsible and qualified employees. Choosing a non-licensed agent is a great risk as your vehicle may be delivered with a great delay. Besides it may be damaged or even lost.
A verified agent is a good source of useful information so, when we are for instance planning car shipping to Germany, we can ask the agency employees about numerous necessary details. They should inform us about the forms we have to fill in. Having an opportunity to discuss the conditions of shipment with a representative we can also enquire about the laws in the country of destination and documents needed for a person shipping and a person collecting the vehicle.
We can also get information about the conditions of the transport. The agent’s representative may give us some advice which will help to decide if we prefer to pay for an open or enclosed shipment. Once we know the pros and cons of shipping a car in a container and on deck of a RORO vessel, it is easier to choose the way more appropriate for our car model and financial possibilities.
