Make a short list of the companies that catch your eye and get ready for the next step in shipping a car.
Google search the company names to receive review sites. Look at the negative reviews first as we can always give ourselves good reviews. Bad reviews will most likely never be falsified.

Some companies will send you a lowball quote to get your attention and then switch the rate later to a much higher amount in order to get a driver to accept.
Make sure to review check the companies that are issuing you those low-ball quotes.
