How DIRECT AUTO SHIP works:
Transporters run by routes, i.e. from County to County. Some transporters stay within their own county (Local Transporting). Some transporters travel counties within their own state of business, also known as Local Transporting. Other transporters will travel to counties across the nation. For example, one will travel from Los Angeles County in California to Miami-Dade County in Florida (National Transporting). As they travel from one county to the next, they can pickup or deliver vehicles anywhere on the route they travel. These are transporters that remain on the soil of the Continental United States.
Then there are transporters that can provide service to have a vehicle cross the water or cross the American borders. These transporters are called International Transporters. Read below to see how the International transporters we have in our system will save you hours of time, not to mention the headaches of not knowing the bureaucracy of shipping your vehicle outside of the United States.

Comments and Analysis
Our experience with auto shippers is that although they may advertise fast, responsible and affordable shipping services, their contract does not guarantee anything. Many such firms do not ship your auto themselves despite entering a contract with you, but act as a broker and subcontract the transport agreement to a third party.
Complaints about these companies generally allege that vehicles are not picked up or are not delivered on the date promised, that they are damaged during transport, or that claims for loss or damage are not paid. Deliveries may be days or weeks later than the window given, and the owner may have to rent a car while waiting for delivery or for repair from damages.
Although a broker may legally be liable for any loss or damage you suffer, they will probably refer you to the actual transporter for recourse. The transporter may be reluctant to accept responsibility for the damages. Unless you are dealing with a reputable company, you will probably find it extremely difficult to collect for your damages.
We do recommend checking with your own insurance company in advance to see if your policy will cover any damages resulting from the shipment. If not, you may be able to purchase a short-term policy that will cover these costs. You should also remove all personal possessions from your car before it is picked up for shipment.
