How Auto Transport & Car Shipping Works
Our auto shipping service is easy and straightforward. First, we post your vehicle through our network, including all National Dispatch Boards for Auto Transport. This is where all licensed auto transport carriers can see your vehicle is available for shipping.
Second, we present offers from FMCSA Licensed and Insured Carriers. When you accept an offer, we send your service agreement that guarantees the price, door-to-door service, and 100% bumper-to-bumper insurance. There are never any hidden fees or charges, guaranteed.
How Do Auto Shipping Quotes Work?
We feel it’s important for you to know how we determine your car shipping quote. When you’re looking for a car shipping rate, you want to understand how auto transport works.
Prices are based on seasonal market demands for cars to be moved at any given time. Each auto shipping quote is prepared based on the season and the current national rates.
You should keep in mind that low-priced quotes often result in delays in getting your vehicle loaded when comparing auto transport companies.
Choosing the right broker is vital to getting a reputable carrier for the lowest price possible. Not all car shipping brokers are created equal.
Mercury does a thorough background check with each carrier for every shipment. We verify their ratings, references, and in addition, we obtain a certified copy of their insurance certificate, directly from the government agency that it is on file with.
You can have peace of mind knowing that the carrier shipping your vehicle is the very best and that there are no surprises, guaranteed.

What To Expect When Shipping Your Car
Auto Transport: How To Ship A Car
There are several ways you can ship a car.
The most popular (and often the most affordable) of the options is a 7 to 10 car open carrier, but may not be the best if you have a high-end luxury vehicle or exotic car as your vehicle will be exposed to the elements during transport. However, these large trucks can accommodate almost any size vehicle including cars, SUVs, trucks, jeeps, and vans, and are a great option for most vehicles.
Open car transport, door-to-door, is also the best way to get the cheapest auto transport rate possible.
