Eric La Gra
Mercury Agent Since 2009
Customers and co-workers alike appreciate Eric’s work ethic and non-nonsense positive attitude, which is why it’s not surprising to learn he’s been a part of the Mercury family for over a decade.
But more than the contribution Eric makes every day to Mercury, his contribution to humanity is what is most respected and admired. Eric served for six years as a U.S. Army Ranger, effectively leading soldiers on the most difficult of missions. So if you’re worried about shipping your vehicle, just remember: your car shipping mission is a piece of cake compared to combat.
His greatest hero is Captain America, and having traveled to over 70 countries around the world in search of adventure and justice, at Mercury, he’s the closest thing we have to our very own superhero.

HOW AUTO SHIPPING WORKS
REQUEST A QUOTE
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.
BOOK YOUR ORDER
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.
VEHICLE IS PICKED UP
Not until you approve your carrier and final logistics is your deposit due. Your deposit is included in your quote and goes toward the total price. The remaining balance is due at time of delivery. Nothing gets done without your approval.
VEHICLE IS DELIVERED
Your driver will contact you prior to your pickup and delivery dates to schedule a time for loading and unloading. Once your vehicle reaches its destination, you do a final inspection of your vehicle and pay the driver the remaining balance. You and the driver both sign the Bill of Lading and each keep a copy.
There are several ways you can ship a car. The options include enclosed trailer, open carrier transport, flatbed truck, door to door shipping and to or from a terminal as well. The most popular of the options is 7 to 10 car open carrier. These large trucks can accommodate almost any size vehicle including cars, SUV’s, trucks, jeeps and vans.
