Communication is key

Yes, you can track it by calling the driver directly. He takes all of his own calls, so we will provide you with the drivers phone number when a driver is assigned to your order.

About GPS tracking, the reality.

Most brokers claim they provide GPS tracking. The reality is that brokers by definition do NOT own trucks, we find carriers that transport vehicles for our customers.  In reality, few carriers actually have GPS.  However, Christa's Excellent Auto LLC accomodates for this by keeping with the customer through the entire transport 7 days a week,   I give a copy of the legally binding contract between myself (Broker) and the truck company (Carrier) that gives you theCarrier's and driver's name and phone number as well.

You can track your vehicle shipment.

When choosing a moving company, prior booking, asking the quesiton "how you can track your vehicle is very important".


Most drivers don't have live GPS tracking that they are willing to give out, primarily due to the safety of the driver and the load he is transporting.


The easiest way to check the location of the vehicle is by reaching out to the shipping agent and asking the status on the shipment.

Often you will be provided with the drivers direct phone number and name, that way he is a phone call or a text message away. If the driver is not responding or busy at the moment, the carrier dispatch department is always working during regular business hours.


We recommend that the client calls or sends an e-mail to the shipping agentImage title.

Where is my Vehicle?

Tracking a vehicle while in transit on a truck is mostly done by contacting the trucking company direct or the driver. And that is by phone or email. If a broker tells you do track your vehicle, it means you need to make calls to find our where it is. These are some of the reasons why tracking a vehicle is not as easy as a tracking service such as provided by UPS or Fedex:

  1. Each shipment is unique and is often a one time transaction carried out by different parties.
  2. Brokers do not have devices that can be placed in vehicles to track each vehicle's entire route.
  3. Most Carriers are indepoendent and do not carry out instructions from brokers to use tracking devices for their customers.
  4. Tracking of vehicles is complicated and will be costly to incorporate into the shipping rate for customers
  5. Carriers tend to shy away from being tracked as they often have to change their original routes due to unforseen circumstances and that may cause alarm amongst customers.

There may be a few companies that may offer some type of electronic tracking but those are the exception. And they may be quite expensive compared to most other reputable auto transport brokers. It is important to know that your broker is dependable, relaible and have up to date information on your shipment. By giving them a direct call will be just as good as tracking your vehcile online.

The best way to find out which brokers are worthwhile considering shipping your vehcile should be vetted and researched. Consult the BBB or google for customer ratings and reviews. Do not just take the cheapest quote. It may cost you a great deal of money and frustration.

We do all the work for you!

Not every truck & trailer has a tracking device. It is more thorough to speak to each carrier to not just determine their current location, but if they foresee any issues that may effect their timeline, such as weather, trafiic, and/or other clients postponing them. We speak with our drivers and their dispatchers daily.

Having a worry free transport

Wanting to know where you car is at times of transit?  Brokers will provide you with his carrier and driver contact information, which will be on the Bill of Lading receipt that they will leave with you once the vehicle is picked up. When scheduling transport it is best to find out the estimated dates from the time of loading to unloading to ease your worry.  Throughout the journey if you are in need of a state by state update you should be able to call or text for updates.  By hiring a licensed Broker you will know that your car is in good hand. This will vary by each reputable Broker so ask before you fill in the contract.

vehicle tracking

It is promised by some Brokers. However I don't understand how this is possible without adding a GPS tracker to your vehicle.

There is not one attached to my truck so if a broker says they can track your vehicle, ask them where the GPS tracker is.

We do not have live tracking

Due to so many carriers being available it is not currently possible to have live tracking on your vehicle.

However after your vehicle pickup, we usually are able to get a fairly accurate time line on the expected delivery date from the carrier.

We also do provide you with a direct telephone number of the driver so you can contact them if you have any concerns about the delivery time/date.

Can I track my vehicle while it is being transported?

There is no "online tracking" of vehicles and this is yet another sales gimmick utilized by the boiler room telemarketing outfits pretending to be technically sophisticated auto transport brokers. In every case, Transport Connection provides customers with their carrier's full contact information which usually includes the driver's cellular phone number. Your carrier will be able to provide you with the exact location of your vehicle at any given time. Also, I am always available to facilitate communication between my clients and their carriers.

YES, YOU CAN

You will have the drives information, phone number and tracking ID.



0

The client will have direct communication with the truck driver while the vehicle is in transit.

Once your driver is confirmed, usually, 24 to 72 hours after setting up the reservation, we will get in contact with you to give you accurate pickup time, and estimated time for delivery. Every order receives several different options, this way, if the first option is not convenient for you, most likely, the next one will. 

Estimated time-frames are always bound to the traffic and weather factors, and while we can be accurate in this regard, we can’t be 100% precise. If you are around a heavy traffic area keep in mind that dispatched carriers are most of the time eighteen-wheelers double-deckers, and just a flat tire could severely delay the whole operation.

Yes

Most auto transporters use the internet to find new loads and schedule bookings and deliveries and keep in touch with their customers and the brokers they’re shipping for.Tracking shipments in the car shipping industry is a relatively new development, believe it or not. If you want your vehicle tracked, you should talk to your auto transport representative about finding a carrier company that uses GPS tracking services in order to keep track of their trucks. This can be more expensive and will likely take longer to find one like that than a traditional carrier. Most of the time your broker will happily call a driver on upon request to get an update on your vehicle.
