Improving Shipping Procedures

A few months ago, I started thinking carefully about why our business wasn't making more money. It just seemed like no matter how hard we tried, we just couldn't turn a profit. Fortunately, a friend of mine suggested evaluating our shipping procedures. It didn't seem like the logical decision at the time, but since he was a successful business owner, I decided to listen to his advice. After carefully evaluating things, I realized that we really did have a few lags in our system. We went through and carefully reconfigured a few things, and it was amazing to see how much of a difference our changes made. Within a few weeks, we were able to speed things up and reduce lost packages. Read this blog to learn more.

3 Important Tips When Using A Car Shipping Company


Moving across the country can be stressful, particularly when it comes to shipping your vehicle. Luckily, there are car shipping companies out there that can take some of this burden off your shoulders. Make sure your experience with these companies goes smoothly by keeping these tips in mind. 

Check the Feedback Online

Your vehicle is one of the most important financial investments you've made in your life, and as such, you need to go to extra lengths making sure it will stay protected. You will have peace of mind when you check the online reputation of the car shipping company you plan on using.

See what other consumers' experiences have been like. What did they like or dislike about that particular company? After seeing these reviews, you can choose a company that you trust the most. Looking at these reviews also helps you avoid mistakes that previous consumers have made, such as not getting insurance or failing to inspect the vehicle after it arrived. 

Protect Your Vehicle 

A lot of things can happen while your vehicle is transported across the country. As a precaution, you need to take the extra steps of protecting your vehicle. You could, for example, make sure your vehicle is transported in a fully enclosed trailer. No matter what the weather elements are like outside, your vehicle won't suffer any type of damage. 

If getting one of these trailers is too expensive for your budget, you can always ask the company directly if they'll put your vehicle at the top of the commercial truck. Then it won't be as vulnerable to flailing rocks and debris that nearby drivers kick up along the way. 

Take Before and After Photos

If you're worried about the condition of your vehicle during transportation, you can always take before and after photos of the interior and exterior. These in-depth logs show what damages there were, if any, prior to taking off.

Then if the vehicle arrives with additional damage, you have proof that you were not responsible. This makes negotiating with the car shipping company much easier, as they can't deny such tangible evidence. They'll be much more willing to pay for any accidental damage that results.

If you're uneasy about shipping your vehicle such great distances, there are plenty of steps you can take to ensure safe travels. Do your research and consult with the company directly if you have any questions.
