Hiring an auto transport requires some understanding of how the industry works. It’s very important to learn about the shipping process and small details before you choose the company to work with.
In the process of transporting your vehicle, the brokers and carriers play very important, yet different roles.
Brokers don’t have their own transport trailers. So they make the transportation of the vehicle easier by connecting customers with the carriers. Brokers have a big network of car carriers in the country. That’s why they can also offer you a lower rate since they are in touch with multiple carriers. Brokers are responsible for verifying the USDOT authority, cargo insurance of the carrier company, federal licenses.
On the contrary, a carrier operates trucks. Often he is an owner-operator and is being able to give an exact time frame and compensate for the lost or damaged items.
Since transporting a vehicle is not an easy task, brokers and carriers are very useful in this process. A broker has an expertise and experience. The broker can guarantee that your car will be transported by a legitimate carrier.
