Is There Such A Thing As Paying Extra for Extra Insurance?
NO WAY! The client will always have a ZERO DEDUCTIBLE at no additional cost during transport. You should never have to pay to decrease a deductible because the carrier pays the deductible in the case of a claim. Do not be fooled into paying extra fees for what you are entitled to. There is no need for “extra insurance”. BEWARE of any company suggesting this as they are usually BROKERS who do not have insurance themselves and rely on the carrier in hopes that they have insurance.
How do I know if the company I am looking at is a carrier or just a broker?
Young’s Transport, Inc. is a Carrier. We actually own trucks and have our own drivers. We carry the insurance that covers your vehicle while in transit. The easiest way to know if you are dealing with a broker or a carrier is to look up the company on the FMCSA Licensing and Insurance page. ( li-public.fmcsa.dot.gov ) A Broker will be listed as a Broker with a Bond or Trust Fund. A Carrier will be listed as a Contract carrier and insurance will be listed under BIPD.
What is the difference between a “Car Carrier” and a “Broker”?
Many companies you find on the internet today are ONLY BROKERS (middlemen) they do not own their own trucks. Brokers rely on carriers like Young’s Transport to transport for them. Brokers initially give a low price quote in an attempt to book the client. After the deposit is made, the quoted price is usually so low that they can’t secure a truck to transport the vehicle. The broker then calls you and tells you it will cost more than the original quoted price. Your situation then becomes either you pay the new inflated price or you lose your deposit. Brokers do not own trucks, they rely on internet load boards where they post your car for carriers to see in hopes that somebody will want to ship your car. In many cases, the brokers offer to pay carriers such a small amount and keep more than their percentage that many reputable carriers, such as Young’s Transport, will not move the listed vehicle. Brokers can quote low prices because they do not have drivers to pay, fuel to buy, truck and insurance payments etc. Many of them run their business out of their homes. BEWARE OF THE CHEAP PRICES!! The lowest price is not always the Best service. On the other hand, we own our trucks and guarantee our quotes unless fuel increases overnight by at least .15 per gallon. In addition, you can call your driver directly and get “REAL-TIME” location of your vehicle and we also utilize a GPS tracking service to locate our trucks. We give you peace of mind. There are times where you get what you pay for. Shipping your car is one of those times.
