Total Car Shipping is a fast-growing auto transport broker based in Hollywood, Florida. The company was established in 2006, and has quickly established itself as one of the biggest transportation brokers in the state. On average, Total ships about 7,500 vehicles annually to domestic and international destinations. The company claims that it has shipped a total of about 45,000 vehicles since its inception six years ago
Total offers customers a choice of an “Economy” car shipping plan, a “Flexible” car shipping plan and an “Expedited” car shipping plan. The economy plan is the company’s lowest price shipping option, and is designed mainly for consumers who are flexible with their shipping dates and do not mind waiting until a shipping slot becomes available for their vehicle. The preferred option is what the company recommends for most people. With the preferred plan, customers specify a time by which they want their vehicle shipped and delivered. Total then tries to have the car picked up and delivered as close to the customer-specified time as possible. With Total’s expedited service, the company guarantees to have the customer’s car picked up within two days of the order being placed, and shipped to its destination in an expedited fashion.
Total Car Shipping arranges for cars to be shipped either on open carriers or in enclosed carriers. It is one of the few companies in the industry that does not require customers to make a deposit when booking their transportation. The company, in fact, requires an initial payment only after the vehicle has actually been picked up.
As a registered, full-service transportation broker, Total helps customers to ship cars, motorcycles, SUVs, mini-vans, recreational vehicles and boats. The company has a list of over 5,000 drivers around the country with whom it works to arrange auto transportation services for customers. All carriers that Total uses are fully licensed, bonded and insured. According to Total, all of its drivers require background checks and need to have prior experience transporting passenger vehicles in order to qualify for the company’s business.
Total is one of the few transportation brokers that proactively posts customer testimonials on its site. The company is currently not affiliated with the Better Business Bureau. However, Total Car Shipping has received many positive reviews from customers on sites such as Transportreviews.com.
