Why do the quotes I’m getting vary so much?
If you’re shopping around for quotes, you’ve noticed prices from different companies can vary by hundreds of dollars. There can be a couple of reasons for this.
First, every honest broker has to estimate the true cost of shipping. Our sales team does the math, analyzes the current shipping climate for your route, and then makes a projection of what a carrier will need to move your vehicle. Your quote is based on this projection. Don’t worry though, your cost won’t change from what we quoted you if you book with us within 10 days. We at Mr. Car Shipper stand by our quotes. Even if it means we wind up losing money on your vehicle move, we will not change your price after you’ve booked your shipment with us.
And that leads us to the second, and unfortunately more common reason quotes vary so much. There are a lot of dishonest auto transport brokers out there. The scam works like this: They quote your move at a cost significantly less expensive than ours and they make you promises no one in the industry could keep. You pay a non-refundable deposit to book your shipment and you think it’s all set. Then, they call you a couple days before your ship date to tell you they couldn’t get it moved for what they quoted you and they need to raise your price. But now you’re stuck with them because they already have your deposit.
