Tampa, FL -- 3/31/2010 - American Auto Movers, a leading auto transport company, currently published measures in avoiding the current auto transportation frauds and locating a trustworthy car transport company for your personal car shipping requirements.
"There are certain essential steps to take to avoid the current auto transport scams that are transpiring. We certainly have been getting quite a few calls from individuals who have fallen in to the same trap and felt it was important to focus on what steps to consider in order to avoid turning into another statistic," said Kelsey Hughes , founder of American Auto Movers Inc.
"Research your options," states Hughes. "Please take a little while and check out the business you are about to trust with your car." He explained very often individuals call 4 or 5 companies and select the business with the "lowest priced rate" and never consider why they're inexpensive. "These 'great rates' often require a prepaid deposit, which for many, is where the scam starts." The company charges the down payment under the fake pretense of "booking space on the truck." The truth is, they keep the funds and seek for a car carrier to adopt the car, occasionally without result. In some instances at the rate they offered, they are unable to find an auto transport company willing to transport the car. Sadly, the $150 or $200 deposit is rarely returned.
Checking an established and unbiased web page for example the Better Business Bureau (BBB) is probably the best ways to avoid this type of scam. "It takes five minutes to see the company has attained 150 problems in the last thirty seven months," states Hughes as he shows us several remarkably bad companies with "F" ratings and countless problems on the BBB. He also showed us web sites which are produced and maintained by auto transport companies themselves. "My staff continually hears 'well this business has a great deal of awesome testimonials on this site.' And while some of those reviews may be true, ANYONE can write them and it's impossible to validate what is legitimate and what their secretary has been writing on her down time."
