Auto Transport Process

Posted in: Blog- Jun 14, 2016 No Comments

Auto Transport Process

Auto transport can be a tricky process if you don’t have the right information. Its starts with the quoting process which in most cases starts off by the customer hitting a lead site. Once you do that the calls and emails follow. Once you start to answer then you’re given rates that don’t usually get your vehicle shipped. So if you’ve started like this you’ll know what we’re trying to get across to you.

If you found this site most of the time its because someone failed to help ship you vehicle. If that’s the case we hope you didn’t give them your deposit information because that’s a whole other part of the going with the wrong company bit. If this story sounds like you we can help.

When auto transport is done with the right broker/carrier combination its usually a smooth process. Not as smooth as say FedEx, USPS or UPS because the size of the truck/trailers needed for auto transport. We’ve been shipping cars since 2007 and we get our rates directly from approved drivers. What this does is it gets you priority placement and overall better service. When drivers don’t get the necessary funds to move vehicles it will cause delays and cancellations. What we mean by this is when a driver books a vehicle for transport at a lower cost they’re always looking for better paying loads. So if they find one they will then go to the lowest paying vehicle they booked and cancel to get paid better. Its not the right way to do it but some brokers don’t know this and or don’t understand it but it would be you the customer that will have this issue to deal with now.

At Auto Shipping HUB we avoid issues like this because we work with only the best drivers and competitively price our vehicles as low as possible to get you on the best trucks. When it comes to auto transport you’ve found the experts and we know how to get it done right. If you have any questions about auto transport give us a call. Thanks

We can also help with car buying and other related things because of our contacts from auto transport. Thanks again

Broker Bond Requirements Being Raised?

Posted in: Auto Shipping HUB- Feb 17, 2012 No Comments

TIA and OOIDA are at it AGAIN!!  Proposed Legislation Involving an Increase in Broker Surety Requirements is being introduced in the house as H.R.7  Here is the Latest Update Key elements of two previously unsuccessful pieces of legislation attempting to raise the transportation broker bonding requirement from $10,000 to $100,000, specifically SB 3483 introduced in the Senate in 2010 and HR 2357 introduced in the House of Representatives in 2011, now have been incorporated as pages 504 through 543  of the proposed 847 page “American Energy and Infrastructure Jobs Act of 2012″ docketed in the House as HR 7. That bill, given its veiled attempt to solidify the financial position of a few powerful brokers, should be renamed the “American Energy and Jobs Elimination Act of 2012″. You may download those pages of that proposed legislation, along with relevant commentary, from the Transportation Brokers Service Association. Another resource in that regard is the Association of Independent Property Brokers & Agents.

Significantly, HR 7 appears to be in direct conflict with a pending Senate bill, also re-introduced in January of this year, the “Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act” docketed as SB 1813. Most importantly, that piece of legislation does not incorporate any language regarding an increase in transportation broker surety requirements. As a matter of fact, Democratic Senator Barbara Boxer, speaking for both herself and Republican Senator James Inhofe, was quoted in a Transport Topics article captioned “House, Senate Weigh Vastly Different Proposals” as having “begged colleagues not to attach controversial or extraneous amendments that would slow this bill down.”

Accordingly, the purpose of this notice is to suggest that those of you whose brokerage organizations might be driven out of business by a surety requirement increase to $100,000 should consider raising your own objections to any such proposed regulation. To that end, we suggest you contact the offices of your local Congressmen and your state’s Senators, as well as the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. Sample copies of statements from both individual brokers and organizations representing broker interests, correspondence which has contributed to successful efforts in blocking adverse legislation in the past, may be downloaded from the TBSA and the AIPBA websites. Conveniently, the AIPBA has already initiated a petition directed to a number of government organizations entitled “Keep Property Broker Bonds Reasonable”, and you’re hereby invited to log onto that association’s dedicated website at www.petitiononline.com. The petition is being offered as an alternative to or as an additional avenue of expressing your own opinion.

Brokers & Carriers: No Personal Items

Posted in: Auto Shipping HUB, Blog, Featured- Oct 16, 2011 No Comments

Most auto hauling companies prohibit the inclusion of personal items in vehicles being shipped. This is for three very good reasons:

License & Insurance – It is against FMCSA regulations for carriers to transport personal possessions within a vehicle. Carriers risk fines for transporting any personal possessions. In addition, the carrier’s insurance typically does not cover the loss or damage of personal possessions included in a vehicle being shipped.

Weight – Auto haulers have strict limits on the weight of loaded trucks and trailers. Additional, unanticipated weight of personal items could cause carriers to be overweight. In this situation, the carrier has to make a choice to drive overweight (risking fines and significant delays) or not take the vehicle.

Safety – Extra weight in the car could cause damage to the undercarriage during loading and unloading.

To avoid the potential loss of personal items and to make sure that vehicles can be delivered on time, please make sure that customers understand that they should not ship any personal items in a vehicle.

 

Auto Shipping HUB’s route page for Hawaii

The Auto Shipping HUB’s route page for Hawaii. Look up a route and locate the tagged carrier or broker with the best ratings. Hawaii’s route page is a little different because part of the move is by ship. In our research the best way to go is to find a broker or carrier to deliver your vehicle to Long Beach Port and call Matson to handle the sea freight. Cost for the sea freight by Matson is around 1075.00.

Hawaii is the newest of the 50 US states, and is the only U.S. state made up entirely of islands. It is the northernmost island group in Polynesia, occupying most of an archipelago in the central Pacific Ocean, southwest of the continental United States, southeast of Japan, and northeast of Australia. Hawaii’s natural and diverse scenery, warm tropical climate, abundance of public beaches and oceanic surrounding, and active volcanoes make it a popular destination for tourists, surfers, biologists, and volcanologists alike.

All the Hawaiian islands were formed from volcanic activity initiated at an undersea magma source called a hotspot. As the tectonic plate beneath much of the Pacific Ocean moves to the northwest, the hot spot remains stationary, slowly creating new volcanoes. Due to the hotspots location, the only active volcanoes are located around the southern half of the Big Island.

Port Of Baltimore Busiest Auto Shipping Hub In U.S.

Posted in: Auto Shipping HUB, Blog, Uncategorized- Sep 27, 2011 No Comments

BALTIMORE (WJZ)—In the midst of this down economy, a milestone at the Port of Baltimore. It is now the busiest international auto-shipping hub in the country.

Kai Jackson explains what it means for Baltimore.

It means big business for the state, and workers hope long term it means jobs.

The Port of Baltimore is Maryland’s main artery for shipping commerce in and out of the state.  Now the port has broken a record. It’s handled more international auto tonnage than any other U.S. port.

“It’s also a good time for the economy,” said Richard Scher, Maryland Port Administration. “It shows that consumer confidence is coming back slowly.”

The port moved 538,000 tons of autos in the first six months of 2011. It’s a 15 percent increase and outpaces other ports, including New York– one of Baltimore’s biggest competitors.

Port workers say it is big news for Baltimore, which has been fighting for more business.

“Anytime there’s roll on/roll off  car ships there’s a lot more man hours,” said Larry Lisica.

The process of moving vehicles from ship to shore or vice-versa is known as roll on/roll off.

The port generates about 16,700 direct jobs in Maryland. About 1,100 of those jobs involve the port’s auto business.

“It’s a good living if you stick with but you have lean times and you have good times,” Lisica said.

Governor Martin O’Malley says the new port record is a good step forward in Maryland’s efforts to rebound from the economy.

Can we put stuff in the car when we ship it?

Posted in: Auto Shipping HUB, Blog, Featured- Sep 08, 2011 No Comments

We Put Stuff In The Car?

At the Auto Shipping HUB we are not a Broker or Carrier we just want our viewers and future auto shippers to be prepared.

When shipping most customers will ask “Can we put some stuff in the car?”. The answer will be “yes you can put up to 100lbs in the car”. This can’t be more untrue and I’ll explain. The person your asking most likely is a broker and he has no idea what the carrier will allow or wont allow. They say under 100lbs because its safe but in no way can they control what the carrier does. Extra charges can occur and or missing items. The Department of Transportation or DOT wont allow any items in the vehicle and nor the Broker or Carrier will insure any of these items.

After knowing that we will say most people do ship with items in the vehicle and never have a problem. If you are going to put items in the vehicle make sure you only use the trunk and make sure these items can’t move. Here are some things you should never ship no matter what. Anything valuable, electronics, anything breakable, anything that can damage your vehicle if it moves, Liquids… etc

Typically its safe to ship clothes, school items, or anything will little or no value. The best advice the Auto Shipping HUB will give you is to avoid putting items in the vehicle.
