Auto Transporters that screw you song
Like my prior blog said. We're not gonna take it!!! We are so fed up with everyone's lie's in this industry that we put this special link on this blog for you the client to play to all the Brokers that have lied to you.. Let them know that we're not gonna take it anymore. Sometimes we have troubles. If anyone said they were perfect, then you need to fire them right away. Auto shipping is one of the worst experiences you can have. Truckers are late 75% of the time, and Brokers lie to you 75% of the time. www.Dealerschoiceautotransport.com has been in business long enough to know that lying gets you in trouble, so be honest and do what you can to help the client. Nothing else matters. Just get the job done, and do it right the first time. We will not quote you a cheap price to try and get your business. We quote fair rates to you the customer and fair rates for the driver to make it worth it for them to want to move your car..
Play song from iLike.com This is the link for your song to all the scumbums out there that screwed you in the auto transport industry. Feel free to have fun and play it into your phone and call the Transport Company that did it to you.

Another day at the office and the phones are going crazy with new customers calling with complaints about the broker they chose and now they really need help getting their cars moved. I started singing the the song by Twisted Sister, We're not gonna take it!!! Because of all the Bull!@#$ we keep hearing from people. You keep on hearing the same old story from the customers.. Example-- My car has been sitting for 2 weeks and the broker took a deposit and didn't get the Job done.. Or the broker keeps lying to me about every truck is breaking down, or I think some things have changed and the rate has gone up!!!! You the customer need to sing this song by twisted sister to them...
I'm not saying we're perfect, but hell, we are as close to perfect as you can ask for in this business.. Ask all of our Dealerships that we work with..
Ladies and Gentlemen, please don't go for the best rate only. Go for business experience, years in operation, how many trucks the company owns, and how many they Broker out, because they can't do it on their own trucks...
Now lets see what you think once you compare all these companies to ours..
If they get the job done for a cheap rate then congrats.. Then we screwed up and we applaud you.
Keep in mind-- Everyone gets lucky now and then.. We don't run our business on luck, we run our business on skill..

I have only 1 thing to say... Please ask your broker for their policy. Not the policy of the company they are subletting the work too.
Make sure your broker has their own insurance. We at www.Dealerschoiceautotransport.com have have an insurance policy to cover you. Ask us and you will receive a copy of OUR policy. We don't trust the transporters insurance. It happened way to many times where the transporters insurance lapsed while in transport and any claim becomes trash. So we on the other hand won't let our clients get screwed.
We carry 300,000 dollars in extra cargo insurance per car. So let me say this. We might seem expensive sometimes, but atleast you know your covered. It's called an accident. Anything can happen. Don't let it be you.
Check out www.Dealerschoiceautotransport.com and view OUR Insurance policy. Not just the truckers policy that may only be as good as the paper its written on..Last Updated on Thursday, 26 August 2010 21:02
The biggest tip I can give you is......drum roll please!!!!! Use www.Dealerschoiceautotransport.com to ship your vehicle. Just kidding. The biggest tip I can give you as a transport company is to tell you to do your homework. Everyone you speak to can tell you horror stories about this business. When I say do your homework I mean Do your home work. If you are finding a transport company online, the chances are 95% it is only a broker that never owned a truck in their lives and will make you promises and whisper those sweet nothings in your ear to get your business. It's a sale and a commission is possibly made if the car gets moved. Now don't get me wrong, you need brokers. You won't find the transporter online. The actual transporter doesn't have time to build a website and can't be everywhere around the U.S. at the same time. So yes,, you do need the brokers to help you find a truck for your car. But I do have to say, you don't need the Brokers that are completley full of CRAP. We at www.Dealerschoiceautotransport.com are not only brokers. We own trucks and broker out tons of cars. We can't be everywhere for everyone at anytime. We need the help of other transport companies too.
Tip of the Day-- www.Dealerschoiceautotransport.com Is all you need for your car shipmentLast Updated on Thursday, 15 July 2010 00:04
I can't say the word INSURANCE enough for this industry. All the dealerships and individuals are as ignorant as you can ask for when it comes to insurance requirements for the Auto Transport Industry. Another truck burned an axel in Florida and burned up a few nice cars to go along with it. Yes, it happened again. An UNDER INSURED trucking company will go belly up because it doesn't have the money to pay back the customers for their cars which were totaled. Sorry to here it Mr. & Mrs. Customers. Wheather you are a Dealership or an Individual shipping their car, you must check your transporters and your brokers insurance. Stop being penny wise and dollar foolish. Over 125,000 dollars in value of cars are not getting paid for and you the customer are screwed out of your money. Why? Because your personal policy will not pay while the car is in transit. Read your policies. If you hired the company then why should your insurance company pay for your total loss. It wasn't your insurance companies fault. They will tell you the same thing I am telling you. Which is do your homework before you give someone your vehicle... We broker out a ton of cars every year. The most important thing you need to do is qualify your drivers insurance policies. Make sure there isn't a Co-Insurance.. And if there is make sure they have one. Another item to look for is a high cargo limit that they need to carry. Everyone makes the same stupid mistake and looks at the transport companies Liability Limits. Who really cares about that.. That only covers the transporter if they hit someone. It has nothing to do with their CARGO INSURANCE. That is what you the customer need to look at closely. If the transporter only has 100,000 dollars in cargo insuance, that means the value of the entire load they carry should not exceed that amount. Well guess what! Everyone exceeds their limits. If you carry 1 new mercedes SL550 which is valued at 100k, then that should be the only car on the truck. So make sure you have the right company to move your car... Tell your broker that you would like to know their cargo limits and what other cars are on his load... If the broker say's he doesn't know or he or she can't get you that answer then you need to find someone else that carries the right insurance. (GOOOOOOOOD LUCK).
Now on the other hand, lets look at www.Dealerschoiceautotransport.com . We have a contingent cargo policy which always covers your cars & qualifies you the customer to be covered no matter what.
TIP of the Day-- Before you hire your transport company, please make sure you hire a company thats insured.Last Updated on Thursday, 26 August 2010 21:02
Anthother extremely hot week in the United States and the Transportation industry is suffering for it. That's right I mean suffering. How you ask... Simple-- Hot weather means hot roads, and hot roads mean more Blow Outs of huge tires. This weather is costing the transport industry more money every day, and in turn it cost the consumer more money. Someone has to help pay for this. The transport industry can't afford to operate at a consistent loss. Wheather you are a bell wheather company in the transport industry of just a 1 truck company, costs are going up. This heat is never good. Trucks work harder in the heat and it costs more in fuel and maintenance. Worst of all the heat makes you sweat, and you get drivers that need to either shower or change more often. Otherwise you get a smelly car at delivery.... Yes I said it first, sweat equals smelly and that stench is put into your car. Did you ever get that nasty smell in your car that you just can't get out? Well thats the smell you get from a smelly driver. They can't help it. It's not their fault... Why not you ask? Simple answer... They are underpaid by most brokers so they can't afford to shower.. Not so funny this time, But it's their own fault for taking that cheap freight all the time, when they could have just been working in a fast food joint for minimum wage in the air conditioning making the same money.
So again We here at http://www.Dealerschoiceautotransport.com have to say the same thing we always do to our clients and that is, pay the fair market rate and get the right service. Now that doesn't mean a car won't be late or damaged, but it does mean you will have the right transport company behind you to make sure the repair is paid for and a possible discount is given in case the car is delayed. Yes I did say it's only possible. The reason is you never know what can happen on the road. Flat tires, Breakdowns, a customer is not home to take delivery of their car (transporters never like that, I can tell you it might cost you the customer more for their time) but thats another subject. There are so many variables out there. If its a reasonable excuse and they can prove a repair then a discount wouldn't be given. It's not the transport companies fault. As they say S!@# Happens. That uncontrolable.
So the tip of the day is--- Keep your car with as little items inside to avoid the extra weight on the trailor. It's hot out there.. Hot roads equals tire blow outs, and that means delays. So lets help the transporters and you the customer by trying to keep the cars as light as possible in this rediculous HEAT. It only cost everyone time and money.

Fiscal Year 2010 Performance Outlook
The FY 2010 budget for the Department of Transportation (DOT) includes $73.2 billion in appropriations, obligation limitation, user fees, and exempt obligations.Please note that the President's Budget contains NO policy recommendations for surface vehicle transportation programs subject to reauthorization, including highway, transit, and highway safety programs. Instead, it includes baseline placeholder amounts for these programs, which account for the majority of departmental funding in 2010.
The Department's five key strategic goals are to: (1) improve safety; (2) protect the environment; (3) support national security, preparedness and response (4) reduce congestion for all Americans; and (5) increase global transportation connectivity in support of the Nation's economy . These five objectives, along with furthering the goals through organizational excellence, form the foundation for the FY 2010 budget.Last Updated on Thursday, 26 August 2010 21:01
When shipping your car its important for you to know a couple of things.
1. Make sure you have no guns or Drugs in your car.
Reason for number 1 is you put the driver and yourself as the owner of the vehicle at risk of jail time.
2. Make sure you receive a signed copy of the bill of lading at pick up and delivery.
Reason for number 2 is if you don't take a copy of the signed bill of lading at pick up that you and the driver signed, the driver can make up a new bill of lading and make up damages that weren't there.
Tip of the Day-- If the driver does't do an inspection in front of someone and sign the bill of lading along with the person releasing the car, you should not release it. The bill of lading is your safe haven while in transport to protect you for any claims you may have.

Car shipping is happening more & more everyday. On the average there is 30 Million Vehicles shipped every year. Seening the tractor and trailors on the road are as common as ever. The auto transport services are being used by auto manufacturers and dealers all over the country. Wheather you use a multicar hauler or a flat bed tow truck, made sure you receive a bill of lading.
Please understand, you should always make sure the car is Clean before you release the car to the transporter. You do this for the benefit of yourself and the driver to do a proper inspection.
Tip of the day- Don't worry about the amount of fuel that is in your car- Its doesn't matter for the transporter.

Once again we have more information about troubles in the auto transport industry. The 2nd largest auto transport company went bankrupt about 12 months ago, and now we have some of the largest guys in the industry cutting back on equipment. Thants right, less equipment means higher transport prices. Supply and Demand. We are still 35% cheaper today then we were 10 years ago, when insurance was 30% of todays rates and Fuel was about 70% less. It doesn't make sense how rates for transport are this low but it's great for the consumer.. Its not that great because the great rate has a price to pay along with it.
Tip for the day-- When your car goes missing for a long time, understand you paid for that kind of service 9 out of 10 times.(sorry)
Please go to www.Dealerschoiceautotransport.com for fair rates,proper insurance, and to know your car wont go missing.Last Updated on Thursday, 26 August 2010 21:01
