Did you know that the car shipping industry even exists? I know I didn’t, until I started working in the industry. In fact, shipping cars has been around for many years… However, the tech era has revolutionized the way cars are being bought & sold today. There are many online sites, such as Ebay Motors, AutoTrader and Cars.com, that give customers the chance to purchase vehicles right from their home. This is allowing people to purchase cars from different states all over the country. Which may allow you, the purchaser, to get better deals on vehicles over your local market.
All this buying & selling has dramatically increased the need for car haulers, car shipping companies, and auto transport brokers. Brokers are facilitators between the trucking company and the customers. Using a broker to ship your vehicle is the most efficient way to locate transports. Rather than relying on one trucking company to be there, brokers have access to thousands of trucking companies.
So, next time you are in the market for a different vehicle, maybe pursue buying one online and SAVE!
