Most likely you will receive a quote one of two ways: online with a free quote generating system or directly over the phone with a live agent. You may be wondering what the difference is and that’s a good question.
Online quotes should only ever been taken as an approximation. Most online quote forms only gather basic information, enough to give you a general idea based on the distance between the point of origin and destination, and not taking into consideration specifics that may alter the price.
An over-the-phone quote is always going to be more precise because you will need to provide exact details about your vehicle, your time frame and your route which will help the agent give you a better understanding of how it will work based on your needs and wants.
The first name, last name and cell phone number of all parties that will be available at the time of pick-up and delivery. These parties will be required to sign off on the Bill of Lading at each end.

Once you have provided your agent with the exact details needed, you will be required to make the deposit payment over the phone with a debit or credit card. You will be emailed a copy of the contract as well as the receipt of the payment confirmation.
