If you notice one auto transport company has a really low price STAY AWAY FROM THEM! If it sounds to good to be true, it is! These transport companies bid you low hoping they can find someone to move your vehicle for cheap, but it never fails that they come back to the customer asking for more money after they have already picked up your vehicle and have it for leverage. The best way to prevent this is to get several quotes take the average price and go with those companies.

Offers that sound too good to be true, probably are

Most of us are careful if a stranger approaches on the street and offers a deal that’s just too good to be true. But we’re much less cautious online, putting us at risk.

Advance fee fraud
If you get an offer for free low cost shipping, there’s probably a major catch. Typically, fraudsters will ask you to send some smaller amount (for deposit, etc.) before they can set up the shipment or your vehicle as you’re promised, but which they never intend to ship your vehicle.
How to avoid this scam: Don’t wire money to a car shipping company you don’t know.

Low Cost – NO RISK Car Shipping
These types of shippers are usually scams and include messages insisting that you “Act Now!” for a great deal.
How to avoid this scam: Discontinue communication with this person/company.

Fake charities
Scammers use disasters to trick kind-hearted people into donating to fake charities when shipping their car or they tell you they will donate a present of the shipping cost. This usually happens when there is a refugee crisis, a terrorist attack or a natural disaster (like an earthquake, flooding or famine).
How to avoid this scam:
Thoroughly check the background of any charity that they claim to donate to and to make sure your donation goes to real victims. Use resources to check out charities.

If a charity or the shipping company does not have a website, be cautious.

To learn more about common scams and how to avoid them, search online for shipping fraud. You can also read the FBI’s material on common types of shipping scams. Most importantly: be as cautious online as you would be in the real world.

Thanks Joe
Contacted Joe needed to transport my SUV from MD to ATL. Joe took my info and said he would call as soon as he dispatch a driver in several hours he contacted me said he can have my car pickup up that next day Friday and delivered on Saturday. The Driver call right away before the pickup and after. He was very quick and professional.

We found a great company

I work for a high-end car dealer and we have been using United for some time now. Every time we shipping a car we get quotes from a few different companies, but we always seem to come back to these guys. They always have a good price and we know that they are going to do a fantastic job. Over the years we have had some minor issues, but the great thing about these guys is that they communicate well and solve the problems. I defiantly recommend these guys for shipping your vehicles.

Don't make the same mistake that i did...

I don’t know why i have to learn things the hard way:( I went with the cheapest company and they didn’t show up to pick up my car. I tried calling them all day long and they wouldn’t answer the phone. I had already given them a deposit and so then i had to go through the hassle of doing a chargeback. They had four-stars, so i thought i was good. I started calling around and i found joe with United Car Shipping. He was really nice and explained why the other company couldn’t get a driver to pick up my car. Joe was awesome and he got a driver to come out the next day. Everything worked out and i was very happy with this company. I ended up paying a couple hundred dollars more, and it was worth it! These guys are really nice and the understand how to communicate. Thumbs up for United!
