Auto Transport Discounts
Many companies provide discounts for their services for people who meet certain requirements, and auto transport brokers are no different. Many different companies will provide car transport discounts for a number of reasons. Most will take that discount of the money they make, not how much the carrier will be paid. This is to ensure that the price changes will not affect your pickup window. It is a common tactic, and one that you can take advantage of. The most common types of car transport discounts that auto shipping companies will provide are as follows:
Types of Auto Transport Discounts
Military discounts are for anyone who is active-duty military in any branch of the U.S. armed forces. Some may also provide discounts for retired veterans, though that is something that is up to the broker. Also, you may have to provide some type of military identification to prove that you were once in the military.
Many companies will provide students who are going off to college for the first time. Similarly, those returning for subsequent learning discounts to transport their vehicle with them. The idea is that being a student in today’s age is expensive and costs an arm and a leg anyway. Thus, shaving a few bucks off auto transport may not seem like much. It can also be worth it if you’re tight on cash and working on a strict budget.
Are you a senior citizen? Many companies will provide discounts for our respected elders, and this can be a great way to save some money if you are a snowbird – i.e., someone who would rather travel down to warmer climates during the brutal northeastern winters than stay home and freeze.
Many snowbirds are older people, it’s just a simple fact, but saving money is always welcome and most companies will provide discounts for senior citizens, snowbirds, or both.
Bear in mind that the more you know about the process and how we work, the less surprises will be waiting for you when it comes time to transport your vehicle.
